Matt Cassel, The New Quarterback Of The Kansas City Chiefs

Now that Brady’s back in shape to get in action, Matt Cassel, who was previously assigned as the Patriots QB for Brady’s replacement, is now traded to his new team, the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to Matt Cassel’s interview with NFL’s senior columnist Vic Carucci, Cassel is indeed very excited and in fact, has been waiting for this opportunity for a long time, that is, to finally get to have his own team for the last 8 years.

“Now I’m a Kansas City Chief, I know it’s gonna come true, and I’m excited and eager to get out there, and get to work everyday,” Cassel told in the interview.

During the Chiefs mandatory minicamp, all the players of the Kansas City Chiefs assembled and met in the field, together with their new quarterback. Even if Head Coach Todd Haley didn’t give any clue, many predict that Cassel will play as the starter in this coming 2009 season opener for the Chiefs.

Cassel’s new teammate WR Bobby Engram says he’s very impressed with the guy. Engram told that Cassel has really shown that he’s going to be the man that the team can really rely on.

Cassel added on his interview that Tom Brady, with Cassel’s time with the Patriots, had taught him a lot, and that every time he goes out in the field, he still follows everything the great QB has taught him. Cassel even mentioned that “Tom Brady has took me under his wings, and just taught me everything that I need to know about playing the position.”

As we can recall, Brady’s injury last season was cause by Bernard Pollard, which happens to be the safety of Kansas City Chiefs. And now that Cassel, which had once fill the position for Tom, becomes be a part of the team who actually cause the trouble to his previous team; and at the same time, the reason why he was given the opportunity to play as the quarterback for the Patriots. Cassel, on the other hand, told that he personally thinks that the hit was unintentional and just a part of the game.

Head Coach Haley also showed some good impression about the team’s newest quarterback. He told that Cassel has really shown how to be a leader for his team. Haley also added that they want their QBs to really work hard, and Cassel has definitely shown and impressed him with that.
