Through two games in 2010, Cassel has been the inept captain of an anemic offense, with only two offensive touchdowns. He has completed only 52 percent of his attempts, and his passer ratting has dropped from 69.9 in 2009 to 55.8. Though the Chiefs also have two wins, Cassel had better start clicking soon, or Brodie Croyle could get the keys to the Charlie Weis offense.
Thinking ahead, it’s hard to envision Cassel returning for 2011, even if the Chiefs can overachieve their way into the playoffs. Weis had no prior connection to Cassel, and Weis surely will be lobbying for a guy like, say, Brady Quinn.
