How is it silly? I said it is not fair to compare the two. Fact is, Cassel played with garbage and Ponder played with the starters. Big difference. How is something obviously implied? Your "umbrella" statement is nothing but cloudy. Cassel outperformed Ponder. The numbers don't lie. Put him with the starters and then you will see the light. Cassel did not suck the first game. Ponder sucked both games!
Okay, now this really made me laugh and I don't know if thats a good thing..

Simpson is a good starter. In 24 seasons on television, he has not aged a bit.
Who wants our team to actually start firing on all cylinders and playing well together before the regular season anyways? It's only the Lions for cripes sake. We can start working on gelling as a team then.
I think the offence might look a tad different when Peterson eventually gets into the line up
