I honestly hope I am wrong when I say this, but I do not think that we have a very good quarterback in Matt Cassel. I have given the guy a year and three preseason games to determine this, and, yes, I know that may be a little soon to call the guy out. However, I see nothing special from this guy. He has not impressed me at all. There is very few plays I have saw that I sit there and think to myself, "Wow that guy is special".
It almost seems like Matt knows where he is going before the snap of the ball. His head is locked onto one or two guys. The only time he looks one way and then throws the other way is on a screen pass. Several times in last nights game I found myself rewinding the tape and seeing a guy running wide open over the middle. There was one play last night where he pumped faked at the same guy two times then threw the ball at that same guy for an incompletion.
I'm not calling for Brodie, however I feel he is a more "special" quarterback than Cassel, but the guy can't stay healthy. I really do hope that next year in the draft we address the quarterback need. I really do hope that Cassel can prove me wrong and be one of the top tier quarterbacks in the league. Right now, I feel we have an average quarterback on an above average offense.
