Matt Cassel: 'Kansas City is a great place to play'

The Chiefs QB likes it.

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

I already had my "final word" on the Matt Cassel, Eric Winston and KC Chiefs fans stuff but I felt I needed to pass along what Cassel said yesterday to the media.

"I'm not really going to speak about what happened last week," Cassel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs. And then he spoke on it.

"All I'll say is, I live here year-round in Kansas City, and I have nothing but support from the people here in Kansas City and the people my wife has met and where my children go to school. The fact of the matter is, Kansas City is a great place to play. We've got a passionate fan base.

"I'm sure they're frustrated. We're frustrated as well. We're working and doing everything in our power to get it corrected and move forward in the right direction."

This is about what I expected Cassel to say. In the last four years he's made it clear that jumping into the discussion that Winston started is not his thing. Cassel is not controversial. But I'm glad he said this about KC.
