Will Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel Get Mad?

New, 1 comment

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com has a very interesting piece on Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel. In 2009, while Cassel was a leader, he wasn't a vocal leader, which Chiefs head coach Todd Haley tried to help him with.

"Multiple times, I go to Matt, ‘You’ve got to be mad. You’ve got to be upset.’ (He would answer), ‘I am upset.’ Well, you’ve got to show it."

Cassel is one of those guys that will treat everyone well -- from GM Scott Pioli to the trainers, he comes off as a nice guy. That's usually a good thing but, in this particular case, the Chiefs want him to get mad.

CBS analyst and former Chiefs QB Rich Gannon also spent some time with Cassel helping him take control of the offense and the team.

"I told Matt, ‘Guys are eventually going to tune Todd out. You’ve got to be the guy. If something isn’t exactly the way you want it, you’d better say something, because eventually they’ll get rid of you.’"

Very interesting read from Marvez.
