    Broncos: Mike Shanahan Conference Call
    Nothing that is obvious but a good reminder for all the comparisons made.

    You know, if there's one HC in the NFL who I respect almost as much as Bill, it's Shanny.

    Re: Shanahan on Cassel vs Brady

    Brady's contribution to blocking schemes is one thing that we forget about. Goes to show that it isn't completely the OLine's fault.

    If we shoved O'Connell into the starting position, would he do any better than Cassel in that aspect of the game? Like Shanahan said, I think that our only option right now is to give Cassel more time.

    I've liked him ever since he put his entire team on the Injury Report. Plus, I liked the dig he gave Davis re:Kiffin.

    Shanahan, and Kubiak when he was there with him, have always given BB fits. He's a very good playcaller.

    Quarterbacks usually learn how to redirect the protections in the third year?
    Isn't this Cassel's fourth year? Has he learned nothing in all these years going up against a Superbowl quality defense day in and day out? Has he learned nothing backing up the best QB in football the past few years? How can Aaron Rogers, drafted in the same year as Cassel, have QB rating of 98.0 with 11TDS ?

    How about Matt Ryan with 4 preseason games of experience, the kid is tearing up the league. Some guys just have it and some guys are named Matt Cassel.

    I think the main difference in that Tom Brady is TOM EFFING BRADY, and Cassel is not.

    I dunno, but 93 for 161 (57.8%) for 5 TDs and 3 INTs in 6 games--and a QB rating of 82.9--doesn't quite strike me as "tearing up the league."

    In the interest of a more honest and accurate analysis, thanks for fixing that error.

    If you watched his throws and decision making you would be singing a different tune. Tell me Cassel makes that perfect throw to win the game against the Bears last week. He has led his team to 4 wins, thats the only stat that matters.

    Cassel's led his team to 3 wins, yet that doesn't seem to matter.

    Matt Ryan was drafted #3 overall in the 1st round. That's a huge difference in expectation between a 7th rounder. Not going to defend Cassel's poor play, but come on you don't expect a 7th rounder to be playing like a 1st rounder do you?

    No, he expects him to play like the #199 pick in 2000.
