Matt Cassel's career as a Chief can best be described as a mixed bag.
The former USC product led Kansas City to a division crown in 2010, and finished that season by tossing 27 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
Outside of that year, Cassel has been mediocre at best. He was having an abysmal season in 2011 before he injured his hand in Week 9, but Cassel looks very confident in the new scheme of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.
Cassel suffered through a tough first quarter tonight, but it was obvious that he is much more comfortable in his new offense.
Kansas City's receivers weren't doing Cassel any favors during the first frame, considering they dropped four passes.
The offense came to life in the second quarter, and Cassel led the team on an impressive 17-play drive that ended with a nice touchdown throw to Dexter McCluster.
He is never going to be a guy who can lead a team to victory with his arm alone, but Cassel looks a lot more like 2010 version of himself than guy the who threw only 10 touchdowns last season.
Two third-quarter turnovers were not what fans were hoping for out of their starting quarterback, but Cassel has still made more impressive throws this preseason than all of last year combined.
Cassel finished 19-of-34 and he looked sure of his decisions during the first three quarters.
