Matt Cassel spent a lot of last year admiring the upper levels of NFL stadiums.
Cassel was sacked 42 times last year and didn't aid the Chiefs' reclamation project as quickly as Chiefs' fans would have hoped.
However, when you spend a good portion of every game on the ground and have to complete most of your passes within a 15-yard area due to the lack of protection from the offensive line, having an unproductive season becomes more understandable.
However, I'm not sold on Matt Cassel.
Although his season taking over for Tom Brady in New England was impressive, Cassel was more of a game manager than game changer for the majority of the season.
Cassel still completed most of his passes short and only toward the end of the season did the Patriots begin utilizing the long ball to weapons like Randy Moss
Cassel wasn't very accurate last year with only a 55 percent completion percentage and most of those completions were for minimal gains.
Dwayne Bowe, who is a stellar receiver, did miss games last season, but even during games he played wasn't as productive as he had been during the first two seasons of his career.
Matt Cassel has to prove his 2008 season with the Patriots wasn't a one-hit wonder.
