Eric Edholm of ProFootballWeekly.com believes the Kansas City Chiefs will likely move on from quarterback Matt Cassel after this season. They clearly don’t believe in him after benching him in favor of Brady Quinn.
All signs pointed to the Chiefs parting ways with QB Matt Cassel at season’s end, but that became all but certain when he was yanked from the Chiefs’ loss Sunday by head coach Romeo Crennel. Cassel was 8-of-16 passing for 93 yards in seven possessions before being removed with a 21-6 deficit that ended up being a 28-6 loss.
So why did Crennel start Cassel Sunday in the first place?
“Because I wanted to start Cassel, so I started Cassel,” Crennel said. “When I felt like I needed to make a change, I made the change to Quinn. So, Quinn got into the game in the second half, and then after this I will evaluate it and I will let you know what I am going to do next week.”
It’s time for the Chiefs to use a draft pick on a quarterback in the first round of next year’s draft. The question remains, will general manager Scott Pioli be around to make that decision.
