Cassel vs. Cutler

I know this has been talked about before, but I'm getting tired of the talk about how "great" Cutler is, or that he's better than Cassel.  (I'm also avoiding work while waiting for some news.)  If you look at the stats between the two during their first full year, Cassel put up better numbers.  Of course the supporting staff was different between the two teams, but Cassel hadn't started a game since high school!  That means a lot IMO.  Anyway, take a look at the numbers and tell me what you think.

Cutler

Cassel

 

Year Team G Att Comp Pct Att/G Yds Avg Yds/G TD TD% Int Int% Lng 20+ 40+ Sck SckY Rate
2008 New England Patriots 16 516 327 63.4 32.2 3,693 7.2 230.8 21 4.1 11 2.1 76T 37 6 47 219 89.4

 

 

One other thing that worries me is the fact that Cassel doesn't have a number.  Matt Cassel has been a Chief for weeks now, yet the roster still lists his number as 0.  Mike Vrabel has his number, which was easy , but no such luck for Cassel.  I'm pretty sure this is nothing to worry about, but I wanted to see what everybody else thought.  There are numerous articles like this around the web.

Personally, I don't want Cutler anywhere near KC.  Also, this is my first post so let me know what I screwed up.
