<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote">The Inconsistency Of Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel

<a href="http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/457095/cassel_qb_rating.png"><span>[Image: cassel_qb_rating_medium.png]</a>

Love him or hate him, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel has led KC to three straight wins to open up the 2010 Chiefs schedule.

Love him or hate him, Matt Cassel is the quarterback for the foreseeable future in Kansas City.

Love him or hate him, Matt Cassel is a very inconsistent quarterback.

I like Cassel's perceived leadership skills. I like his mechanics, scrambling ability, arm strength, etc. But I can't get over just how inconsistent he's been as the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback. It frustrates me. I tell myself that good quarterbacks do have bad days but their average level of play should be pretty good.

I'm not writing this to knock Cassel or start up a full fledge "Cassel sucks/No he doesn't" debate. I simply want to point out the major reason I am not yet a Cassel Believer, if you will. He's inconsistent. Too inconsistent.

Where's the rock that the Chiefs can rally around? Where's a 3-4 game stretch of solid quarterback play? Matt Cassel hasn't been able to provide either one of those things. And the stats show it.

Again, I'm not knocking Matt Cassel or making excuses. At some point, Matt Cassel will have to become a consistently good quarterback. It's his offense. He has a dedicated offensive coordinator this season. And the Chiefs running game is killer. The inconsistency has to stop at some point. If it doesn't, then the problem is pretty clearly....Matt Cassel.

Check out the chart above. That's Cassel's QB rating in the 18 games he's played as the Chiefs' quarterback. After the jump, I've got two more charts detailing the inconsistency of Matt Cassel.

To get some conversation started, let us know if Cassel's inconsistent play is getting to anybody else. It's really starting to bother me the more I analyze it.

Note: Stats are over Cassel's 18 games as the Chiefs quarterback. He missed Week 1 against Baltimore last season.

That top chart looks like my heart monitor every time Cassel drops back.

There's nothing more exciting than science. You get all the fun of sitting down, being quiet, writing down numbers, paying attention. Science has it all.

Seriously? This thread should be loaded with love. :wub: Matt Cassel IS inconsistant. :checkit:
I will say he has looked better these last 3 games, than he did ALL of last year. BUT (and you already knew this) he is not my pic for QBOTF. He is doing a good job, of doing what is asked of him, much to my surprise. Is he a 'franchise caliber QB'? Um.. Not IMO, but so far, he has not put his D in bad positions, by not turning the ball over, and he arguably has one of the best RB tandem in the NFL.(which would help ANY mediocore QB look better)

Defense is great. Cassel is terrible. That is all.

Cassel didn't drop a touchdown nor did Cassel drop the NEXT pass thrown his way. Bowe needs to pull his head out.
