Default Has Cassel been worth it to KC?

Just curious to see what people have thought of KC. Do you think he was worth the money/pick KC gave for him? He's been kind of meh so far. Im not blaming the losing on him but he has looked kind of average from what Ive seen.

What do you think of Cassel so far?

i havent watched him play, I saw they gave dallas a good run, but didnt really see his highlights, I guess 0 wins tells you something, even if he is playing well.

When a team makes that deal to get a franchised guy, you expect him to be a top five player immediately. Obviously he is not that right now, and I don't ever see him being a top 5 qb.

He is probably not worth the $60 million plus investment, but I would like to see Cassel play behind a decent offensive line. The Chiefs' porous offensive line and Larry Johnson's suckitude are the main reasons why the KC offense has underperformed.

It's absolutely pointless to waste money on what you think is a top QB when your line is so horrible. See Carr, David.

Yep.

Thingpen and Croyle would have been cheaper options with the same result.

He's actually done OK, but that team is pathetic.

Jay Cutler himself would struggle behind the O-Line.

He sure seems like a Tony Romo to me (not exactly in style/ability, but more in terms of substance). He's had flashes of brilliance, flashes of idiocy, and very little in the way of consistency. He is most definitely not a 'franchise QB' at this point. I don't think he ever will be, but I do think he might develop into a pretty nice quarterback. Much like Trent Green did in K.C. before.

McD faked interest so that KC would take him.





I'm kidding.



.....but seriously, Cassel has that "deer in headlights" look on him....not quite as bad as this guy

but durned close. Maybe too much caffeine or something

7 TD's only 2 INT'S and an 85.1 QB rating to go with 14 sacks.

That's pretty damn good considering what he has around him.

BTW Orton's had 8 sacks already.

Well, I don't know what he cost, but he has definite NFL starter skills. He's young still. Dude threw a TD to Vrabel Sunday, that's a trivia question for the future. I'm gonna bring that one up a few years from now as an NFl trivia winner.

It is difficult to say, obviously spending that much money on a player when you lose every game isn't worth it, but if he had talent around him they would have a lot more success.

He's costing them $14.6 million this year. More than Brady is costing the Patriots this year.

He isnt worth the contract they gave him, and I am not sure if he can ever be an elite player

But so far he has done a decent job IMO

Bowe is the only good player on the offense

No, he would've been worth that contract (MAYBE) for a team like Minnesota but not for the Chiefs.

Any QB would struggle behind that OL, the question is whether they would struggle to the same degree. Those of us that have been getting the Bears game as the option in Satellite, have seen that he has succeeded despite his line not being much better (his RB has been injured so they have not had any running game thus far, although Forte did manage to put together two good runs in his last game). The difference is that Cutler is much more mobile and has a quick release. Cassel was a sack risk behind a decent line like NE, in KC he is at risk of serious harm. Cassel will succeed if they get him the same type of line they had for Green...easier said than done.

All I'm saying is Cassell has NFL skills. That's it. That's my analysis, and how much he cost isn't part of that. Dude can play and he'll be the KC starter for the next 5 years. I'm not his agent, jeez.

I'm not sure that's the case with his current contract. IF the chefs would have not given him a new contract, then yes, they'd have to pay him $14.6m for this one season...
