First, I'm a big fan of the guy and have been since his first TC. He's got a great arm, has shown good accuracy (and poor accuracy, too, like anyone, but at least he's shown he can throw with touch and timing). It all looks good for him. Except every time he takes the field, someone gets in there and knocks him loopy. I've been thinking, well, pocket presence can only be learned in live-fire training. If he gets out there for more than a half-game a season with the starting OL, he'll figure it out. So then I read this article by my favorite sports journalist about how the lack of pocket presence is the reason David Carr is on the street. I'd like to know what other folks think. Is pocket presence instinctive and Cassel lacks that sixth sense, or is it something he can learn, or is it simply too early to tell? Or am I making too much of an occasional sack? I know Patchick's radar went off when this thread hit the mill, she's been a Cassel fan for a while. I'd like to hear her thoughts. Anyone else?
