Zorn touts Cassel's improvement

Jim Zorn likes what he has seen out of Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback Matt Cassel thus far, according to ESPN.com.

"He’s dramatically improved because we’ve been able to spend so much time together between all the OTAs, the minicamp and now,” Zorn said. “I really feel that he is further along than he was last year. He’s really taking charge. He’s working on things that he wasn’t working on last year at this time. The way he attacks his line of scrimmage with his command, he’s changing things or keeping things on. Our tempo is much better. We’ve really improved a lot of things sooner than we did last year.”

While Cassel has a good grasp on the No. 1 spot on the depth chart, Zorn said the battle for the No. 2 spot between Ricky Stanzi and Brady Quinn is still wide open.

“I think that’s a great competition,” Zorn said. “Right now I see both guys taking pride in the position and the importance of getting better. They are fighting it out (laughter) they really are, they are duking it out. There is no clear No. 2 yet. The preseason will help that, but they are great kids, and they are not only helping themselves, they are helping our football team. In our quarterback meeting room they are attacking it pretty well.”
