Chiefs vs. Steelers 2012: The good, the bad and Matt Cassel

Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE

SB Nation Chiefs blog Arrowhead Pride reacts to the Chiefs' OT loss to the Steelers.

There's no shortage of reaction from SB Nation Kansas CIty Chiefs blog Arrowhead Pride Tuesday morning following the Chiefs' 16-13 loss in overtime Monday night to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Chiefs took a lead in regulation for the first time this year while still falling to 1-8, but that wasn't even among the positives listed by Joel Thorman in his look at what the team did well and didn't do well. Named among the positives were the Chiefs' defense holding Pittsburgh to a mere 249 yards of offense as well as the play of linebacker Derrick Johnson, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and running back Jamaal Charles.

But since it's the Chiefs, there were also plenty of negatives Thorman took from the game. Matt Cassel struggled under pressure again, going 1-for-8 on blitz situations. Cassel was also 0-for-8 on third down. Meanwhile, coach Romeo Crennel fell to 0-9 lifetime against the Steelers.

Cassel opened the Chiefs' overtime with a costly interception which, Thorman wrote, was sadly predictable.
