Matt Cassel, Lucky Number Seven?

Alas, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback of the future Matt Cassel has chosen his number. And that number is…

7

Great Prince song, good Brad Pitt movie, a digit hated by PETA and a number that haunted Chiefs fans during the Martyball years. Hopefully, Cassel will reverse the curse and 7 will be a number that Chiefs fans learn to love.

Why did Cassel pick the number 7? Probably because a bunch of nobodies have worn it for the Chiefs, most recently Casey Printers and Justin Medlock. Becoming the greatest No. 7 won’t be much of a challenge for him. I like the choice. 7 just feels right for our first franchise quarterback in what seems like seven decades.

I guess we can all go out and get our Matt Cassel jerseys now.
