Cassel: Talent here better than KC in 2010

Matt Cassel’s career year in the NFL as a quarterback came in 2010 while quarterbacking the Kansas City Chiefs. He went 10-5 as a starter, the Chiefs won the AFC West and went to the playoffs. Meanwhile Cassel threw 27 touchdowns against just seven interceptions and went to the Pro Bowl. But looking up and down Buffalo’s current roster, he sees more talent on his current team than he did on his old Chiefs squad.

Appearing on the Howard Simon show Tuesday morning, Cassel believes Buffalo has some of the best skill position talent in the league.

“The talent level of what we have here overall is much higher than what we had in Kansas City back in 2010,” Cassel said. “We had a steady running game. Dwayne Bowe had a fantastic year. He had like 18 touchdown catches and we had a strong defense and the combination of that always works together. We’ve got all the pieces to the puzzle here to be a successful football team. You look at an outstanding defense, a great special teams and you add our offense with it… all three have to complement each other, but at the same time our offense has the best skill players in all the league in my opinion.”

Jamaal Charles was on the roster and was second in rushing with Thomas Jones as his backup, along with Bowe, so there was a lot of talent at the skill positions. So for Cassel to believe the talent here already is superior is saying a lot.
