After the Chiefs 44-13 loss to the Broncos, Matt Cassel met with the media. Here are the highlights:
On what went wrong:
“I mean, you name it. There were a lot of things going wrong out there. We didn’t get in much of a rhythm all day; we didn’t take advantage of a few big-play opportunities. I can’t throw [my receivers] the ball, obviously, and there were a number of issues, especially on the offensive side of the ball today.”
What do you see out there that makes you think that progress has been made the past two weeks?
“We took a big step back the last two weeks. You come in and beat a team like the Steelers and we’re going in the right direction. Last week against San Diego got out of hand and this week got out of hand and the team [has] been working hard. We’re going out there each and every day and practicing the right way and doing the things that we need to do, we just have to transfer that over to gameday and perform better.”
Do you see this offense, specifically yourself, getting better week to week, or is that something that’s hard to see?
“Well, like you said, I sometimes think it’s hard to see, especially after results like today, when there are so many mishaps and so many problems we need to fix. We’re just going to have to go back and keep working hard at it, you know, there’s nothing else we can do. We’re not going to give up. This is not a team that ‘s going to give up and lay down; we’re going to keep working hard and try to get this thing figured out and be better next week.”
On the incomplete pass to Bobby Wade in which he was wide open:
“I think that you put the ball out there and hopefully he makes a play and it didn’t happen.”
