Report: Chiefs losing confidence in Matt Cassel

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel is losing the support of his teammates as well as people within the organization.

“Look, there’s a big reason why they went after Peyton Manning as hard as they did this offseason,” said a source with knowledge of Chiefs president Scott Pioli’s thinking, per Cole. “What you’re seeing from Cassel is pretty much what was expected. He’s a really nice backup, not a starter.”

Cassel isn’t the Chiefs’ only problem.  If they could play defense they might have some more wins on their record.
