I don't think Matt gets that same type of respect. His tools are not close to Joes IMO.
In the second half they made the safeties play tight. Joe never threw deep down field with his 'big strong arm'. I can honestly say I'd take Cassel over Flacco. Nothing skill related. Just there overall personalities. With the right tools in place I could see Cassel being a Tom Brady sort of leader. Whenever I talk about Cassel I think of NE Cassel. Can you imagine Joe slinging the ball like that? Nah....
