The Last Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl Quarterback

A report out of Boston says Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel will be replacing New England Patriots QB Tom Brady in the Pro Bowl. Assuming the report is accurate, Cassel becomes the first Chiefs quarterback since QB Trent Green to make it to the Pro Bowl.

The teams lead by Green were known for their offense but I was a little surprised when I saw how well Cassel's numbers stack up to Green's 2005 Pro Bowl season:

Green: 317/507 (62.5 percent), 4,014 yards, 17 touchdowns, 10 interceptions

Cassel: 262/450 (58.2 percent), 3,116 yards, 27 touchdowns, 7 interceptions

Obviously the 2005 Chiefs passed the ball more and Green was a little more efficient completing passes but Cassel's touchdown numbers are so huge compared to Green's. That's a good stat to dominate in.

My mind is telling me that Green was a better quarterback but the stats would disagree.

What do you think about these two seasons? Would you rather have Cassel or Green?
