Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel talked with Soren Petro on 810 WHB's The Program on Monday morning for a little over 20 minutes going over the loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Dwayne Bowe's performance and the next offensive coordinator of the Chiefs.
Listen to the full interview at 810WHB.com. Here are a couple of highlights:
Dwayne Bowe with no catches against the Ravens. Cassel indicated Bowe's lack of production had more to do with the Ravens than the Chiefs game plan. He said Bowe was the number one target on four of the first five passes of the game (which was actually the entire first half) but they had a cornerback in his face and a safety help. He said the Ravens were cheating to Bowe's side to take him out of the game. Apparently it worked. "It's always tough when you have a guy that's that talented and had so much success throughout the year because we obviously wanted to give him the ball."
Picking the next offensive coordinator. "I'd absolutely like to have a say in what's going on," Cassel said of finding the Chiefs next offensive coordinator, "but then again it's not always up to me and this actually isn't up to me at all." Cassel said he trusts GM Scott Pioli and head coach Todd Haley will find someone.
Cassel says he'll take a few weeks to regroup and let his body heal before starting to get ready for the next season. In the meantime, we'll be waiting on news about the Chiefs next offensive coordinator.
