Glazer: Chiefs’ Cassel Soon to be Forgotten Man

Everyone else just wants to enjoy last night’s win…

Okay, I watched. I bet on the Chiefs. I won. It was exciting. It was great to see Arrowhead rock again. The new guys did damage and the Defense showed up for the first time in a decade. Nice.

However I doubt that one smart Chiefs Fan believes this team has a bright future this year.

Do you?

Here’s why I bet on the Chiefs. We had a west coast team flying across the country the day before the game. There’s

    wrong…not according to charlie weiss…
    pioli….the entire new england offensive
    staff….josh daniels….and about 50 other
    more intelligent football analysts than you.
    Why do you think you know everything about
    everything. Stick to strippers/whores/etc.
    becasue you know nothing.
    Look at the other winning quarterbacks in the
    nfl this weekend..some who won had not so stellar
    games but they won. Remember trent dilfer..probably makes cassell look like
    bart star….he won a super bowl.
    You don’t need a great quarterback to win in the
    nfl. Plus if you’re like cassell and you have
    no receivers (i mean no receivers….bowe dropped
    2 passes….chambers is too slow….pope can’t
    block nor catch the ball) what the hell do you
    expect.
    The running game is catching on but if you were
    so observant you would have seen that there was almost no separation between receiver and
    d back on any pass play. SD has some good
    d backs! So if tyhe receivers can’t make moves
    and get the separation…cassell has noone open
    to throw with.
    Plus I heard tht the field was a bigger problem
    being wet than most thought it would be because
    if you watched the game at the stadium you would
    see the recievers on both teams were having trouble making cuts/running routes/cleats weren’t
    holding well so that made the problem harder.
    Plus…being the sports anlayst that you are
    (NOT) you would knowthe weather conditions were
    the worst possible. It’s one thing for the
    ball to be wet and hard to grip…its another for the wind to affect the throws. those together make it really hard to throw passes
    along with the fact that you’re receivers arent
    any good and they can get separation from the
    defenders so the qb has a decent chance at makiing a completed pass.
    Sit on your couch..make your bets….work the
    hos at jones and woodside…but stop bullshitting
    usinot thinking you know sports…
    i’m no analyst…you’re not an analyst…but the
    guys who are paid millions say cassell will
    get good.
    Remember…this is only his 11th start ever!
    We won….thats what counts…remember bears
    going to super bowl with a horrible qb (i think
    it was grossman)….we should be so lucky!

    Philip Rivers somehow managed almost 300 yards in the same rain and wind, with multiple drops by his receivers. The weather actually saved the Chiefs, because San Diego looked like they forgot to pack their rain cleats.

    And people always use Dilfer as the poster boy for mediocre quarterbacks winning Super Bowls. Two things:

    1. Ravens defense. It was otherworldly good. The Chiefs’ D is going to struggle to be average.

    2. Dilfer was better than Cassel. Really.

    When your up 2 TD’s and the sky’s open up…forget the stats. Cassel is being handled by pros. Is he Rivers NO…but I think he can lead with a great running game. I’ll bet Haley and Wiess are drooling trying to figure out how to get Dex and Jammal out in space.

    And I think this was Cassel’s 31st start (15 with NE and 15 last year).

    I’m only part of the way through the article, but Jet Lag? Seriously? It was 7:00 for for the boys that flew in. They only payed until 10, by their internal clocks. Our buys were playing until midnight. Weak weak reasoning. Teams fly all the time. Like every other week.

    Get back to your sex life and the club scene Craigo, you’re very limited in the sports area especially Football.

    I think both teams will find out alot next Sunday in Cleveland. Jake Dellhome, or however you spell his name, sucked in his first start for the Browns. Bet the under.

    Glaze is mostly right.

    Cassel,god bless him is in way over hsi head.

    The Chiefs are much improved.

    Two Offensive lineman, and a scrap heap QB with an arm, = 1990s all over again.

    That ain’t terrible.

    Craig-Thomas Jones, Mike Vrabel….the chiefs have veterans other then Brain Waters. What about Casey?

    You know if you run a business sometimes its important to bring in outside eyes which have no emotional attachement. I really recommended you find a way to listen to the broadcast. Trent Dilfer really shared that the issue isn’t Cassel but the play calling. He complained about run run throw. He complained they would go to long of periods before they threw “It’s been 23 minutes since Matt threw don’t they realize the harm they are doing.”

    I think Trent was right on. But i think what all this shows is the lack of confidence the coaching staff has in him throwing.

    Not saying Cassel is the second coming of John Unitas, but as Dilfer and Dawson pointed out last night, it’s not fair to rip Cassel while the line can’t pass block for him, nor can his receivers get any separation …

    I don’t want to upset the haters who think Glazer can only do sex stories, but the guys is correct. Matt stunk last year as well. He has yet to have a ‘good’ game. Even when the Chiefs won a game or two, he was not playing that well in those contests.

    For those of you who say his line is poor, yes its not great, but I’ve seen him when he does have time to throw and yikes not good. He often over or under throws short stuff, wide open. At this point he is as Glazer said a BUST. Sorry folks his points are well taken here. I love the Chiefs but if Cassel does not improve quickly, look out.

    Hey Tony, you clearly are not a big time gambler, I think Glazer might be, he is on the money here regarding why you take KC over San Diego. First off dumb guy,THE HOME TEAM IS ALMOST ALWAYS FAVORED! Why? Cause they are travling, not sleeping in their own beds, hello. This is even more a factor for a night game. And Tony an even bigger factor for weird late night game like ten PM MOnday Night. This is a huge edge to KC at home, monday night, everything Glazer mentioned. He said take KC and points, no gimme win here. Oh and since Glazer doesn’t know sports, the lucky man won his bet. Come on Man.

    Pretty hard to be this critical of Cassel when the game was played in a downpour and the line didn’t provide great coverage. Weiss certainly didn’t let Cassel loose either. Let’s give him 4 games and then see whether a post like this is warranted.

    A couple years back when the Chiefs grabbed Cassel, you were all over the radio saying how great he would be Glazer. At least you manned up recently and said you were wrong. Yeah, it doesn’t look like he will be here next year. Its gonna set this team back a couple years trying to find a quarterback to take this team deep into the playoffs.

    Have to agree with Glazer on this one. When you don’t trust your leader/quarterback to throw a short one on third down to seal a win, and run instead, he’s just not good. Haley correctly made that call in the fourth quarter so as not to suffer a turnover. He thought Matt had little chance to complete even a short throw. Sorry.

    We all hope Cassel gets better, but like Bowe, its been a long wait.

    Again – Rivers played fine in the downpour, and his receivers did him no favors. Weis didn’t turn Cassel loose because…well, did you SEE the first two series? There was no weather at that time, by the way. It doesn’t matter how much time the line gives Cassel; he holds the ball too long every time he has to make a decision.

    Can we all agree that Cassel is a tough SOB for getting up after some of the vicious hits he has taken?

    I think you got to give Matt a few more games, but no it doesn’t look good. Craig’s comments make too much sense right now.

    By the way for those of you who think Glazer doesn’t know football. Wrong. His first restaurant in Westport was build by Chiefs Super Bowl great Jerry Mays. Several Chiefs worked for his Uncle in the 60′-70’s. He was the man on Red Fridays when they meant something in the 90’s. The team lived at Stanfords from 90-03. He is best pals with several ex Chiefs. I know Craig was following them even in High School and would be ill when they got beat by the Raiders back then. The guy knows football pretty damn well. His preseason predictions on the season have been nearly on the money for years and I know he made a large bet on the under with KC the last couple years in Vegas, they talked about it on Johnny Dare. He puts his money where his mouth is. Saying that, I think the Chiefs will be better then he does this year, like 8-8.

    You are right jw guy. I saw Glazer the last couple years working out at Woodside. A few times he was lifting with Chiefs ex lineman Tom Condon, now a super agent for most big name players. I think they talked some football.

    Hey Glazer if you and Nigro were so great why did they move Red Friday from Westport to Downtown back then?

    All you gotta do is go back 12 to 15 months in the KCC archives to see who the guys and gals were that said Cassel was a bust from the get go.

    Unless all your wagering is “clean” and you’re “reporting” it, I’d suggest not talking about “action” on this blog. Big Brother navigates the web with all sorts of “tools” to look for “revenue”.
    Capiche?

    I saw a couple of players interviewed after the game on TV. It was a strange feeling, like they had been told to give props to the fans and how the Arrowhead mystic was important to them. It was like they really didn’t believe that and didn’t care or know. Glazer made a good point that only one player was with the Chiefs when they mattered, the rest were in high school and knew nothing of this period. Not their fault, but alas yesterdays are gone and forgotten by everyone outside of KC, only us fans remember THE GOOD OLD DAYS. Hope they come back. Cassel so far is horrible, nothing looks good about him, hope that changes as well. Go Chiefs.

    Lets sit the record straight on Craigs football knowledge. JW and Westport Patron listen up. I bet the Craig master on the chiefs record last year and won. Almost every prediction unlike Craigs has proven correct. That is why I am refered to as the Guru. So please don’t break your arms patting Criag on the back. And let me know when you want the real scoop.
