The Morning Fix

The Kansas City Chiefs month-long support of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month will kick off with several activities and events planned for the Oct. 2 game vs. the Minnesota Vikings. The team’s efforts, which coincide with NFL and NFL Players Association initiatives surrounding this cause, are being presented by Hy-Vee and will benefit breast cancer patient care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center.

“Obviously, there’s disappointment,” Cassel said. “Anytime you play the quarterback position in the NFL, you put yourself out there each and every play. You go out there and you try 110 percent throughout the entire game, and sometimes things don’t go like you’d like them to go.

“Unfortunately, that last interception is something that you’d like to have back, but it does happen, so you’ve got to have a short memory.”

The medical evaluation of Brandon Flowers and Jon McGraw will continue through the weekend and into Sunday morning. Officially listed as “questionable” for this weekend’s game, both players will be gametime decisions against Minnesota.

Well, based on the Chiefs’ putrid preseason offense, that might be a legit concern, but extending the lockout rationale into the regular season makes absolutely no sense at all. In just the first three weeks of the 2011 regular season, we’ve had two different quarterbacks (Cam Newton(notes) and Tom Brady(notes)) pass for over 400 yards in consecutive games, becoming the sixth and seventh players to do so in NFL history. (Ironically, Cassel was one of the others, but he did so with the New England Patriots in 2008.) Brady also broke the mark for a three-game stretch with 1,327 yards.
