Do you consider yourself a true fan of the Kansas City Chiefs? If the answer to that is “Yes” then you need to ask yourself if you on the “Suck for Luck” bandwagon. If the answer to that is “Yes”, then you are not a true fan.
True fans NEVER root for their team to lose games. True fans NEVER tank an entire season to maybe get the #1 overall draft pick.
Over the past two weeks, I have been very happy to see the performance of Matt Cassel rival most of the performances by QB’s in the NFL. Cassel has taken this team on his shoulders. Oh, this is not the first time that he's shown leadership (see the St. Louis game last year when he was playing 11 days after having his appendix removed). What we have seen over the past few weeks is that this is still Matt Cassel’s team. Regardless of who is calling the plays or who is out on the field, Cassel has shown leadership. He put head coach Todd Haley in his place in the Minnesota game and he led a 2 minute drill at the end of the first half to get the Chiefs back into the Colts game. He then erased a 17 point deficit and did what even his biggest supporters said he could not do, and that was lead a comeback.
Matt Cassel has shown a lot over the past two weeks. He has shown that he can be a leader, a true professional and a guy that can carry a team. Matt Cassel is the QB for the Chiefs. I would like to see Andrew Luck or any rookie for that matter, lead like Cassel has the last 14 days.
So, say what you want about Matt Cassel, but remember, this guy has heart, guts and makes plays.
Cassel will never be a great QB in the NFL. Not many of the current 32 are great QB’s. However he is a good QB and a QB the Chiefs can win with now and in the future.
