Let's be real here, Cassel had a good game against a very talented defense.
He's the only player on the offense other than the center that touches the ball on EVERY play.
To suggest that all of these things are "out of his control" is incorrect.
No, Albert shouldn't have let the rusher run free. Cassel could have also held onto the ball. He's not completely absolved of blame.
Similarly, on the Moeaki tipped ball/INT - although it appears to have been a perfectly-thrown ball, we have no idea about the velocity and other factors that might have led to Moeaki not catching the ball. By sheer virtue of the fact that Cassel THREW THE PASS, he'll never be completely free of blame.
All of that being said, I'm sick and ****ing tired of these conversations. I would just like for ONE TIME to be able to say "he had a good game" and not have to add a qualifier afterwards.
