Honestly I'm not fully comfortable with going into battle every Sunday with Cassel at the helm. But it's beginning to look like that is our plan, and I'm beginning to accept it. The only REAL alternatives are reaching horribly for a rookie QB or pulling off a blockbuster trade, which is highly unlikely.
One thing though that is keeping me slightly optimistic, is the fact that Pioli, Crennel, and Hunt all finally realize that Cassel is not our guy. He is just a really expensive stop-gap at this point and we are no longer committed to him in the long term. I'd say this is our last year with Cassel unless he manages to outplay his previous years by a good bit.
I know this is just a retread, but it keeps me hopeful for the future that we at least realize there is a problem at the QB position now, and we will potentially be fixing it in the future with something other than a band-aid!
