Matt Cassel was asked about the Chiefs fans wearing black to the Bengals game

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Some fans are planning to wear black to Arrowhead on Sunday.

Some Kansas City Chiefs fans will be wearing black to Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals as part of the Save Our Chiefs movement. The idea is that wearing black is what you'd wear to a funeral and the Chiefs...well, they're nearing death. Here's more information on it.

The whole point is to demonstrate the fans displeasure with the organization and to call for a change in leadership (i.e. fire Pioli).

Matt Cassel will be starting this weekend against the Bengals and he was asked for his reaction to those fans wearing black to Sunday's game.

"For us, you go out there and you do your job," Cassel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. "Like you just said, we're frustrated, everybody is frustrated here. None of us envisioned this or none of us want to be 1-8, and the fans are frustrated as well. At the same time, we have a job to do, and we're going to go out there and do our job to the best of our ability. Hopefully, that results in a win and we can change the atmosphere and the environment around here."

There's no easy way to answer that. He can't get mad at those fans. And he certainly can't praise them either. So he's in a tough spot.

From a fans perspective, whether you're wearing black to Sunday's game or your favorite Chiefs jersey, remember that we all want the same thing -- a winning team. The Save Our Chiefs group organizing this wants the Chiefs to win just as badly as the fan who has had season tickets for 30 years. We're all on the same side here. People just have different ways expressing themselves. The end result is the same -- we all want a winner.

Also when Cassel says, "Hopefully...we can change the atmosphere and the environment around here," implicit in that statement is that something is wrong with the current atmosphere or environment. Not that that's a surprise at 1-8, but I just found that interesting.
