The Kansas City Chiefs have a new offensive coordinator and he thinks that the QB he inherited in Matt Cassel, is a winner.
Talking with reporters this week, Daboll pointed to Cassel’s two 10+ win seasons as evidence that the QB can get the job done. He also noted that Cassel is currently in some rather illustrious company.
“He’s been a winner,” Daboll told reporters in Kansas City on Thursday. “He’s had two 10-plus win seasons. I did a study just this offseason about 10-plus-win quarterbacks, which is what you’re defined by, obviously. There’s been nine of them in the last four years that have had two or more 10-plus win seasons in the regular season, and Matt is one of them. The other ones being Brady, (Drew) Brees, (Aaron) Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli (Manning), (Joe) Flacco, (Matt) Ryan, so he’s been a winner. He works his tail off in the classroom. I think he’s done a good job in these OTAs, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
It is good that Daboll believes in Cassel because #7 is clearly the best QB on KC’s roster. Daboll was able to revive Miami’s offense last season with QB Matt Moore and limited weapons so KC fans are hoping that he;ll have even more success with the Chiefs.
Cassel may never be remembered as a great QB but he certainly can be an effective one. Hopefully Daboll can get him to be effective once again in 2012.
