Keep Webb as 3rd string QB and a WR, freeing up a roster spot. If we have to go that deep we'd be sunk with Bethel-Thomas-Hossenpheffer-Incorporated anyway.
PS: Why sit Ponder after an INT? Gotta be a confidence killer.
I know everyone is down on Cassell but I really don't believe a lot of what went on in KC was his fault.
You had a Brooding WR over a contract... a TE that couldn't stay healthy. A horrible OL and A defense that showed up when it wanted to.
Did I mention that your star RB tore his ACL.
I think at this point Cassell could lead this team to a Superbowl in a game manager role.
I think Ponder may have more upside and that is why he will continue to play.
While I am not confident he will reach that upside, I understand why management is playing him.
Cassell is an upgrade from Webb as a QB and I think he can replace Ponder and there won't be a drop in play at the position and I hope the leash is short.
The one thing about Frazier is he will stick to his plan, one set for the starters was what he said and he stuck to it. Now I hope he doesn't act like Childress by sticking with Ponder cause he is my starter but has more of a view that our starter has to due this to do the job and if that isn't being done than make the change....really don't want to hear turnovers aren't Christian's fault there are many mistakes being made when it was Ponder that threw late across his body and across the field off the wrong foot again.
Cassell seems to have a stronger arm than Ponder too, or maybe that's just how I see it. Cassell was a good signing, clearly an upgrade, but I think Ponder will remain the starter and his leash won't be as short as everybody thinks it will be unfortunately.
I was frustrated with the inability for us to punch it in on 1st and goal from the 2, but then again we didn't have AD in the game, so I think that would have gone a little different in regular season.
I think that Cassel could take our team into the playoffs. And I think that Ponder will have a short leash - however, I also think that he will play just good enough not to get benched. With Ponder I think we are an 8-8 or 9-7 team, which is about the same team we were last year (yes, I know we were 10-6 last year, but I believe we overachieved). With Cassel I think we could be a 10-6 or 11-5 team.
