Matt Cassel seems to already know his fate with the Kansas City Chiefs after being benched at halftime of Sunday's 28-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brady Quinn replaced him and looks to be the 1-9 Chiefs' starter for the remainder of the season, according to the Kansas City Star. Of course, Quinn has been given the starting job before, but lost it back due to injury, causing the Chiefs to go back to Cassel.
“I’m not going to go into that right now,’’ Cassel said after the Chiefs lost their seventh straight game. “I don’t know what my future holds, but I’m going to continue to be the same guy. I’m going to continue to work hard and do whatever I can to help this team win. It’s a tough situation. Anytime you’re the quarterback. There is a lot of weight put on you whether it goes good or whether it goes bad.
“I wasn’t anticipating it. I came in at halftime and Coach Crennel said he wanted to create a spark so he was going to make a change at the quarterback position. I wasn’t anticipating that at halftime after we came down and put three points on the board (before) the half.’’
