Following are the seven articles I've written in the short time I've been writing for Bleacher Report.
Since the day Matt Cassel was traded to the Chiefs I was thrilled—a staunch supporter and believer. Not just that, but believed he would be a star, a top five quarterback and the Chiefs leader for years to come.
Though there is no immediate proof, and none that I have any intention of wasting my time looking for, this is just a small sample of my never wavering support.
This was not because I like the name Matt. I watched almost every game he played with the Patriots in 2008. It was based on observation and logic.
I have written other articles, on blogs, forums and emails among friends and enemies alike.
I have taken a great deal of abuse for said support, believe me.
All those people who are jumping on the bandwagon and saying you've been with him all along are full of crap.
At least many of the top sports writers are acknowledging they have been wrong.
My 12-year-old son was looking at the screen the other day when they announced Matt Cassel was the AFC Player of the Month and even he said, "You've said this all along."
When you have to eat crow and say you're wrong, you do it.
Sorry, this time my shoulder is sore from patting myself on the back, and you can kiss my ring if you don't like it.
