Jamaal Charles Backs Matt Cassel's Leadership And Ability For Chiefs

While Matt Cassel has his detractors and even has fans booing him during recent MLB All-Star Festivities in Kansas City last week, you won't find that attitude among his teammates. Jamaal Charles recently gave an interview to ESPN for their breakdown of the AFC West to talk about a number of things, but there was no wavering on any issue concerning his quarterback.

When asked about Cassel, Charles spoke confidently of Cassel as a guy who's going to be the leader of this offense without question.

"He's our captain of the team," said Charles. "He's been on teams where they've won and he's been there where they've been to the Super Bowl. He's a guy that can bring in a lot of different [things][ to our team, like being a leader, and showing the young guys how to run the routes. He's thrown to some of the best wide receivers in the league like Randy Moss and he's throwing to Dwayne Bowe so he's still doing it."
