Haley is still trying to figure out whether Matt Cassel is the answer in Kansas City.

Blessed with the NFL's No. 1 rushing attack, the Chiefs won the AFC West as Cassel threw only seven interceptions. Still, KC had the fewest passing yards in the conference and Cassel appeared lost against Baltimore in a lopsided home playoff setback.
