Any team that has any clue what it's doing (e.g., not Jokeland) will not look simply at the statistics. They'll actually watch film on the QBs, and look and see what they did right and what they did wrong. In other words--they'll see that Cassel won't always throw for 400 yards and 3 TDs a game, but they'll also see that a fair percentage of the Patriots' red zone struggles were not his fault (if the call is to run the ball, and the guard/tackle is pushed into the runner after the handoff, that simply isn't a QB's fault; similarly a well-thrown ball that gets dropped by the receiver is likewise not the QB's fault). More importantly, if they're smart, they'll try and project that QB into their system. Regardless of what happens today, though, Cassel still has a future in this league.
