Oh, my head... seriously. As best I can, here is your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet.
But on Thursday, Cassel got a question he couldn’t answer, or more accurately he wouldn’t answer.
It started with this question: do you think winning is a habit?
"I definitely think it’s a habit and I definitely think it’s a culture, there’s a culture to winning," Cassel said. "I’ve been around a lot of successful teams and I think once you have people buy in and you start to win some ballgames it becomes contagious."
This led to a second question: is losing a habit?
"I don’t know that," said Cassel. "I can’t answer that question, honestly."
The last word said it all – "honestly." Cassel decided not to try to create some sort of answer that wouldn’t really be an answer. That’s because he knows that if winning is a habit, then losing can become a habit as well.

KC Star Video: Cassel looks to Denver
The Chiefs’ starting defensive ends haven’t been great. Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson possess the defense’s most lucrative contracts and were the team’s draft picks in each of the last two years. But for all the money, time and expectation, backups Wallace Gilberry and Alex Magee are the ones who have combined for 6 1/2 sacks. Dorsey and Jackson have zero.
Still, the Chiefs don’t seem worried. If there’s one position that actually brings coach Todd Haley some comfort, it’s defensive end.

Larry Johnson’s game against his old team last week turned into a non-event for all the Chiefs except linebacker Demorrio Williams. The two got into a shoving match along the sideline in Cincinnati’s 17-10 win over the Chiefs.
"I didn’t say anything to him," Williams said. "He was talking to me. I guess he was trying to get himself going. He tried to stiff-arm me, throw me down. It didn’t work, did it?"
Johnson had 11 yards in four carries in the game.
Chiefs buzz: Not-like-family reunion from KC Star
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Andy Studebaker owns a special memento from his second season in the National Football League.
The Congerville native and 2004 Eureka High School graduate possesses the football he recovered in the end zone 12 days ago for his first professional touchdown.
Although Studebaker certainly is glad to have the ball, he will take away something far more valuable from this season: the experience of playing behind a 13-year veteran and three-time Super Bowl champion.
Studebaker has served as second-string left outside linebacker, behind Mike Vrabel. The player who helped the New England Patriots win three NFL championships has been a trusted mentor for Studebaker.
