I was impressed seeing an offense that could actually ALMOST take advantage of having Adrian Peterson...Cassell needs to be the starter. End of discussion.
The Defense, however, disappointed me once again. They continue to allow everyone to score on them seemingly at will....especially in the 4th Quarter. They almost gave this one away. I think the idea of approaching Winfield and trying to bring him in is almost REQUIRED at this point, as this squad has been living or dying on luck....and we're only lucky 1/4 of the time.

I give our D a TINY bit of credit. Near the end of the game, down 10 points, we managed to force the Steelers to kick the field goal rather than score the TD. If they score a TD that drive, I have no doubt in my mind we lose. We made them kick, forcing the final drive to be a TD or lose.

Ponder makes an average Qb looks like Peyton fricking Manning.
Cant wait to see his idiotic face cut ....El underdog.

The best solution is to put Cassell in as the starter again at Carolina and see if he can continue to lead the offense. There is no doubt that our offense played better against Pittsburgh than it has all season, Pittsburgh's defense has given up 27.5 PPG (24th) almost as bad as ours. Carolina on the other hand has only given up 12 PPG (3rd). Ponder wasn't going up against good defenses either outside of Cleveland. So far this year, Cleveland is 9th at 17.5PPG, Chicago is 26th at 28.5 and Detroit is 22nd at 25.2.
Carolina is averaging 22PPG on offense. This year we are 5th in scoring at 28.8PPG and 29th on defense with 30.8 PPG. Seems to me the biggest concern we have this year is on defense, until we get that under control I don't see us having much success.

Those ratings are simply wrong...
1) 7-10 against loaded front
2) Ending the game 10 for 10
3) Over 120 QB rating
4) 2 td 0 ints
5) First game without a turnover.
6) 2 Wrs with over 100 yards
7) A Wr with a score
8) A WR with 2 scores
And ponder played better. That site is now the onion.com

Doesn't make them right or wrong, just needs to be taken in context.
In the large scope of things, results are what matters and that's what the QBR is all about. If Cassell continues to get better results, he should be starting.
