LET’S HAVE A CONSTRUCTIVE DISCUSSION ON CASSEL

Believe me, I like Cassel. I think he’s a class guy and I believe that he’s trying to do exactly as he’s being told. Also, I believe that Haley is trying to bring him along slowly and also not asking him to do any more that what he can handle. That is where our discussion should be.

I often hear it said that we should not be comparing him to Manning or the other great QB’s but I think that’s exactly wrong. A Manning like QB is the ultimate goal. We don’t expect it but what should a good team settle for. What must a QB be able to do?

How about reading defenses? Should Cassel be changing plays at the line of scrimmage? We’ve seen Cassel throw some beautiful slants, especially near the goal line. When he sees Moeaki or Bowe with single coverage and open for a slant, should he be calling that? Does he have that freedom? How about fly patterns? Does he ever audible?

Does he watch just one receiver? Or does he check down and look for the open one? If he sees a LB move into the hole or a safety move up, does he change the play? I’m just wondering what an average NFL QB should be able to do and if Cassel does it? Fake pumps, rolling out from pressure, pocket awareness, where does Cassel fit in these abilities and in the areas where he’s weak, are those things that can be taught, learned or do they pretty much have to be natural…..especially at the pro level?

I really do not know these answers but I really like Cassel and I do think he’s a class act. He’s tough, atheletic, has pretty good speed when he scrambles, he’s a hard worker and a great team player. I’d really enjoy a constructive discussion and hear more about what you other guys think?
