When Pioli brought Cassel in he had no college experience and only one year of NFL experience as a starter. This brings to mind a curiosity that I will ask your opinion on, in a poll.

How many years of College experience as a starting QB is equal to 1 year of NFL starter experience? 1? 2? 3? 4?

Parcells' criteria included three years of starting in college.

It depends on the system but alot of college systems are not comparable to the NFL nor is the type of athlete you are constantly facing.

Since college QB's aren't facing NFL defenses I'll go with none are comparable.

I read a while back that the #1 indicator of NFL success is years starting in college. I’m not sure what that has to do with the question at hand, but its an interesting stat when you consider “frustrating” guys like Sanchez (1 year?) and Cassel (0).

Compare that with Drew Brees (4), Peyton Manning (4), Phillip Rivers (4), Ben Rapelisburger (3), Eli Manning (3.5), etc. Andy Dalton surprised a lot of people with his great rookie year, after starting 4 seasons at TCU. Aaron Rodgers started 3 seasons (minus 5 games) in college. Even the ultimate “diamond in the rough” Tom Terrific started 2 seasons at Michigan.

Obviously, there will be exceptions.

I realize that systems are different, but I'm not asking the question from a technical angle. I'm asking from the experience angle of having been "cooked" in the actual game situation "oven."

Hope its not like a Bucky Larson.

With the learning curve, 1 year in the NFL equals 4 years of college.

I voted for 3 years. I don't know if it actually "equals" a year in the NFL, but I do believe that experience gives the greatest chance at NFL success.

It's just like anything else, the more experience you have, the less thought you have to put into it. Things become automatic. Plus, becoming the starter at such an early point usually indicates noticeable talent, and surviving for multiple years suggests success.

I started this thought thinking one year of NFL starting has got to be as valuable of the entire 4 years of college. I went for 3 though, the more I thought about it. So in my opinion we drafted a Matt Cassel with three years of college experience with our 2nd rounder. Since then he's had 2.5 years of NFL starts. We should really expect excellent results from that investment this year or get rid of his ass.

1 year in college = 10 years in the NFL. That's why if you've never started a college game you'll never catch up in the NFL!

Oh, thank you for this. I was on the fence with my feelings on the matter but now that you've posted this idea I think I know what we should do with the guy.

If he had played in college he never would have been drafted. The whole world would have been clued in that Cassel sucks long ago.
