Chiefs Grades vs. Vikings Matt Cassel – C Looked a little like Matt Cassel from last year. Would be good enough to win more games if we still had Jamal Charles, but even Cassel’s best efforts aren’t going to lead this team to very many victories. Dexter McCluster – C Nothing spectacular still. But no fumbles. Thomas Jones – D+ Doesn’t seem to be hitting the hole as hard this year. For as tough as he’s advertised, he sure does go down easily.
Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian engages in Twitter war with lawmaker/handicapped war veteran Courtesy: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d822cabc0/article/vikings-wr-berrian-in-twitter-war-with-veteran-of-real-one?module=HP11_headline_stack It's fair to say that frustration is boiling over in Minnesota, after the Vikings dropped to 0-4 Sunday with a 22-17 loss to the previously winless Kansas City Chiefs. After the game, Scout.com reported that veteran Minnesota receiver Bernard Berrian engaged in a Twitter war with a few people, among them a state lawmaker who has co-authored a bill to aid the construction of a new stadium for the team. After Berrian responded angrily to fans who criticized his production -- he has just two catches for 37 yards this season -- Rep. John Kriesel, R-Cottage Grove, chimed in. "If you want to follow a hilarious twitter account, try @B_Twice (Bernard Berrian) who says that he's open a lot and should get the ball more," Kriesel wrote on [Read more...]
Andrew Cangelose, KC SportsNation CHIEFS GRADES - Game 3 vs Chargers Matt Cassel - F Fumble on the play. The coaches are consistently calling running plays on 3rd and long. You don’t do that if you have a good quarterback. He played decently in the 2nd half but erased everything with a bullet pass into Eric Weddle’s crouch to end the game.
Matt Cassel – F Cassel is confirming what I’ve suspected for a long while. He’s not that good. Watching the two opposing quarterbacks we’ve played so far has me feeling like a jaded housewife locked into a passionless marriage longing for the strong arms of a Fitzpatrick or Stafford to sweep me away. In case you don’t get my point, I’d rather have about 28 other league quarterbacks right now over Matt Cassel. Jamal Charles' Knee - F I wish I could blame that damn Lions’ mascot but it appears the injury occurred before he rolled into that silly Lion. Sadly I would feel a little better if that mascot also tore his ACL.
Matt Cassel – D He collapses under pressure like a man being shot in community theatre. It reminds me of Elvis Grbac, but at least when Elvis did throw the ball he averaged more than 3 yards per completion. He remains a must start in PPR fantasy leagues because of his proficiency for catching his own batted passes. Jamal Charles – D He ran the ball okay when he got the chance, but anytime you put the ball on the ground you won’t get a passing grade from me.
