Considering the line in front of him, the caliber of WR/TE he has to throw at, along with having 2.7 running behind him with no enthusiasm for 8 games, this year hasn't been easy for Cassel. Outside of holding on to the ball too long and a dropping completion percentage, which are issues, Cassel has actually done fairly well...if not simply "average" so far. Here are the stats:

 

2:1 TD/INT ratio (12/6)

            -T16th TDs

            -T7th INTs

55% completion percentage (26th in NFL among those who’ve played at least 7 games)

Sacked 34 times (2nd most in NFL next to Aaron Rodgers)

77.9 QB Rating (22nd in NFL)

--To compare with other young QBs--

Those in their second year of starting:

Joe Flacco has a QB Rating - 89.1 (12 TD/8 INT)

Matt Ryan has a QB Rating - 80.0 (16/12)

Those in their first years of starting:

Chad Henne – 77.7 (6/4)

Matthew Stafford - 66.9 (11/14)

Mark Sanchez has a QB Rating - 61.1 (10/16)

 

He compares quite favorably to all QBs above besides Flacco. Personally, things could be much worse...we could have drafted JaSuckus Russell (47.7 QB Rating) or Derek Anderson (36.2 QB Rating)
