Yet, all these 2012 Chiefs know is what they have done to this point and Cassel admits, he is pleased with the progress this unit has made thus far.
Cassel was happy with the tempo of the offense. He said the average huddle break time was about 18 second, which he says is a good average for the regular season. Often, offenses are much slower early in the preseason.
“I really liked our tempo,” Cassel said. “That was a big thing.”
Cassel said it was important that all three offensive teams played well and clean. He says it shows the unit as a whole is coming along together.
The team passed another test, in Cassel’s eyes, when it returned to practice Monday and performed at a high level.
“Sometimes, when you come back to camp after a preseason practice is sloppy,” Cassel said. “But everyone worked at a high level and we got some things done. …It’s early, but I really like the way things are going.”
