I'm no NJ Chiefs Fan (It's his birthday today BTW) but here goes...

And that does not include all the other times he’s been knocked to the ground. In the last five games, press-box stats put that number at 39. That’s probably on the low side. But that’s 19 sacks, 39 knockdowns, or 58 times he’s ended up in the dirt. That’s almost a dozen times per game. How is Matt Cassel going to survive the season? Can he last 10 more games?

Starter Printers back in the old routine at last
Sure, he earned a big bonus to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006 and when that didn't work out he became the highest paid player in the CFL midway through 2007 when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats outbid the Montreal Alouettes. Those were money decisions, not necessarily good decisions. Since he never got to play in the regular season for the Chiefs, the Ticats -- expecting miracles -- won only six of the 23 games he dressed.

NFL has devolved into a system of classism - News - Opinions - Belleville News-Democrat
During his 30 years as commissioner of the NFL, the late Pete Rozelle inspired adulation, respect and near-unanimous praise. And established one affectation he's been unable to shake even after more than a decade in that great luxury suite in the sky. Rozelle was the NFL's patriarch of parity. He was a sweat sock socialist. His idea of a perfect world was 28 teams finishing 8-8 with NASA scientists called in to administer the tiebreakers.

Planning for the playoffs isn’t a bad thing - Kansas City Star

It was only three seasons ago that LaDainian Tomlinson and Larry Johnson were at the top of the pile of NFL running backs. Neither will be anywhere close to that Sunday when Tomlinson’s Chargers and Johnson’s Chiefs meet at Arrowhead Stadium.

Tyler's back home, on 2 fronts -
Instead, Pioli told Tyler the Chiefs had been on the phone much of the day with another team and had decided to trade him. Tyler's initial reaction? "My heart dropped," he said.

"I think when he was drafted into the league that’s what they were playing up there in Buffalo," Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. "He’s got some versatility. I think he could play both spots actually, really all three spots across the board and probably have a chance to succeed. But I think he’s one of the guys I worried less about when we decided what defense we were going to play."

I think it is a pretty good bet that @shawnemerriman will break out of his sack drought against the Chiefs. In his career, 6 games= 6 sacks.
