I would rather have him start a wild-card round playoff game than Joe Webb. So good signing. He looked bad in KC but so did everyone else for the last two years.
Now go get a defensive player, so were not solely relying on draft picks next season. That sentence only really applies to Rick Speilman, so everyone but him disregard it. D #
Seriously- He is a backup and will be a hell of a lot better one than Webb could ever be. You need a guy like him who can step in and play when needed.
On paper it looks like the Steelers are about to start a HUGE rebuild. Harrison gone and Polamalu also on his way out the door. How would you guys feel about making a huge trade for Big Ben? We have plenty of draft picks to work with and I would love to build around him for his remaining prime years.
I would take Big Ben. Hell, I may even kick in to hire a few chicks for him to grope when he comes over to interview.
Signing Cassel means Spielman's odds of bringing in Tebow are virtually zilch now. I can live with that.
Schlereth & co. were on ESPN laughing about the QB controversy that could arise with two bad QB's trying to win the starting role.
I am praying that McLeod Bethel-Thompson has taken a big step forward and becomes our starter. Then we don't have to worry about the two knuckle heads creating a controversy.
I want a guy that can zip the ball in there, call me crazy but watching MBT last preseason i was impressed and thought he tossed the ball like Drew Brees minus the accuracy. You can correct accuracy.
But anyways Matt Cassel is better than Joe Webb hands down.
