Obviously, after winning only two games, the Chiefs needed to make drastic changes and that they did firing head coach Romeo Crennel.
Shortly after parting ways with Crennel, Kansas City hired Andy Reid almost immediately after the Philadelphia Eagles fired the longtime head coach. The hiring of Reid a crucial step in the right direction for the Chiefs and now the attention turns to the quarterback position.
Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn are clearly not the long-term answer for this team at the quarterback and one or both may not be returning to the team next season. Reid let it be known that the team has yet to make a decision on Cassel’s future in Kansas City via Adam Tiecher of The Kansas City Star:
“I’m going to just let that play out,’’ Reid said when asked whether Cassel would play for the Chiefs in 2013. “We’re too early in the process to know that. We’ll continue to evaluate it. We’re evaluating him just like we do a free agent. That’s what you do, and the thing about that is it takes time. I think he realizes that. That’s how it works when there’s a change.’’
