Matt Cassel cost the Chiefs a bundle to acquire, and Romeo Crennel still believes he's the man to lead the team to the playoffs. Crennel was asked about his quarterback on Thursday, and he had the following to say about his starter:
Every game is going to be a crossroads game until the season is over. Not only for Matt but for all of us, so we approach it and he approaches it just like he approaches every game. He will do everything he can do to prepare to play his best in the game and help the team win. He’s no different this week than he was the week before as far as preparation goes. He’ll get in the game and you’ll see what happens in the game.
When asked if Cassel is the guy to lead the Chiefs to the playoffs, Crennel had the following to say:
I’ve said all along that Matt is a good, solid quarterback. He’s taken us to the playoffs before. I think that he has capabilities of taking us to the playoffs again. I think he’s going to work to try and get that done
Cassel and the Chiefs will have some work to do if they want to make the playoffs this season, at they struggled in their opener on Sunday against the Falcons. They'd lose the game 40-24, with Cassel throwing a pair of interceptions that hurt the Chiefs. It's early in the season though, and many expect the Falcons to be one of the better teams in the NFC.
Cassel will have his chance to to justify Crennel's faith in him on Sunday at 12:00 p.m. CT as the Chiefs head to Buffalo to face the Bills. The game can be seen on CBS.
