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.
