Ok, Enough with the Micheal Vick talk cause its not going to happen, and Tyler Thigpen has earned his stay. But who really is Matt Cassel? 

Matt Cassel played for the Southern Cal Trojans for four years behind the Heisman Trophy winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart before taking a seat behind Tom Brady.

Like Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens, Matt Cassel stepped in as a quarterback with no NFL experience. Granted Matt had the likes of a Randy Moss and Wes Welker to throw to.

The New England Patriots running game was solid enough to give Matt Cassel options to throw to and the offensive line brought him some time to make good reads.

Matt Cassel has 15 starts in his four seasons in the NFL, but was the fifth quarterback in NFL history to pass for 400 yards or more in back to back games.

The Kansas City Chiefs has high hopes for Matt Cassel and hopes he can bring the Chiefs back to the front. With some good coaching and a strong offensive line, Matt Cassel should be able to bring the Chiefs back to playoffs and maybe a Superbowl that this franchise desperately needs.
