Matt Cassell haven't had a good quarterback coach since Charlie Weis and Josh McDaniels. we know what he did when that chemistry was there.— Tamba Hali (@TambaHali91) February 10, 2013

I believe in my boy. Model citizen, loves the game of football. Gives back to the community Just like everybody he wants a fair chance.— Tamba Hali (@TambaHali91) February 10, 2013
A line that will block for him relentlessly. When we had Will Shield, Willie Roaf, Brian waters, KC Weigman, TRENT GREEN WAS THE MAN.— Tamba Hali (@TambaHali91) February 10, 2013
Alex Smith from the media viewpoint was an average QB. Then Coach Harbaugh took over and we've seen what they have done in two years.— Tamba Hali (@TambaHali91) February 10, 2013
I love Tamba but this is silly.
The difference between Trent Green and Matt Cassel is that Green consistently got better. Cassel hasn't. In fact, Cassel has declined for three consecutive seasons. You currently have a quarterback who hasn't completed over 60 percent of his passes in five years and people wonder what you'll do with that No. 1 pick in the draft. To say that Cassel hasn't had a fair chance is insane. He was an unquestioned / unchallenged starter for three years. Where else has that happened in the NFL with the kind of record the Chiefs have had in that span? Maybe the Jets (but they won a lot)? Anyone else? It's rare. I don't know how much more of a chance you can get.
We all agree that Cassel is a model citizen. Just because I don't think he completes enough passes doesn't mean we can't recognize that he's a fine young man.
What prompted all this?

I love Tamba Hali but lets all thank the Lord he isn't in charge of personnel. Cassel must go.— Chiefs_All_Day (@Chiefs_All_Day) February 10, 2013
I'm not going to argue with Tamba Hali, but I strongly disagree with him.— bossmanham (@bossmanham) February 10, 2013

@tambahali91 ill trust a guy who is around the team every day before I listen to the media or emotional fans. Maybe cassel could return— Jeff Fawver (@Jtfawver) February 10, 2013
@tambahali91 It's called 'tangibles', and even though Cassel is a great dude, he lacks the tangibles to be an effective STARTER.— Christopher S Atkins (@ChrisAtkins4GM) February 10, 2013
