Matt Cassel has been one of the more underrated quarterbacks over the past four seasons. He was the man who made everyone believe that literally any quarterback could be put into the Patriots system and succeed.
While Cassel did benefit from that very talented Patriot squad, he's gifted in his own right.
In 2010, the former USC Trojan had the best year of his career—3,116 yards, 27 touchdowns and just seven interceptions—making his first and only Pro Bowl thus far. However, multiple injuries shortened Cassel's season in 2011. He threw for just about 1,700 yards, 10 TDs and nine picks while playing in just nine games.
Cassel was just one of the numerous key Chief players who went down with injuries last season. Starting running back Jamaal Charles suffered a season-ending knee injury the second game of the season, star safety Eric Berry and starting tight end Tony Moeaki both suffered season-ending injuries prior to the first game of the season.
With a healthy Charles, a productive Dwayne Bowe and second-year receiver Jonathan Baldwin and a healthy Moeaki, this Chief offense could be scary good, resulting in massive numbers from Cassel.
