Chiefs stick with Matt Cassel, why is another question

Matt Cassel was under center when the Chiefs took the field in the second half.

If you don’t think that qualifies as news, you didn’t see his first half.

The Chiefs turned the ball over five times in the first 30 minutes, earning every bit of their 27-6 deficit to the Chargers, and then some.

Matt Cassell was a putrid 10-of-18 for 101 yards and three interceptions, and Jamaal Charles has turned it over twice.

Benching Cassel in favor of Brady Quinn or Ricky Stanzi won’t fix anything today, but it does raise a valid question about the direction of their offense.
