I’ve heard Eric Berry.
He talked about pride in the uniform, the arrowhead on his helmet, and past Chief great Willie Lanier.
Jamaal Charles has fans energized with his anticipation for the 2012 season.
“I’m hungry. I want it this year. I’ve got the passion for it. I can be patient. I just can’t wait to play football, I can’t wait to bring stuff back to this community and show how much we can win.”
Brandon Flowers gives Peyton Manning props, but basically says Manning doesn’t matter. The Chiefs will win the AFC West.
Players are speaking out, showing their eagerness to play, but one guy really needs to crank the volume. I respect the way he played Kansas City showing interest in Manning, the way he’s handled criticism, and he’s been a good sport. Matt Cassel has leveraged the constant disapproval better than most.
Cassel needs to get vocal
But Cassel needs to participate with others doing the saber rattling. Fans need to hear him. I need something that sticks like biscuits and gravy.
Berry each time he talks tells me something I remember. It’s good stuff getting fans ready for training camp and the season. Charles has been on fire with his thoughts, especially his initial statements on Kansas City taking teams out the way.
Charles was talking Denver and Manning.
Confidence levels are at an all-time high for Chief players. Talk from fan favorites causes a fan to jump on the wagon early.
I haven’t heard anything substantial from Cassel. It’s time to come out and rally the troops. Cassel needs to let fans know he’s just as stoked as offensive teammate Charles.
Charles is looking like the point-man, the spokesman on offense.
I like it, but more should be coming via the QB’s way. The momentum starts in the head before it steps on the field. When you think you can then you go and do. Cassel needs every bit of support to help push him to the next step. Several think he can’t.
I submit that traction starts with talking. Cassel, get to talking. Then get to playing.
Cassel, this fan wants to know what you think!
