Some people claim he was just as bad in 2010 than he is now. I disagree. The 27:7 proves it. He was a better game manager in 2010 with Weis than he is now when he has even better receiving weapons around him. The comparison is between the two Cassel's, not Cassel and other NFL QBs.
He hasn't regressed.
He played exactly the same against good defenses that could get any pressure then that he is playing now.
He simply didn't face as many defenses that could get a push.
And many of these "pressures" are his own fault because of his total lack of pocket awareness.
He consistently runs himself into pressure when he has a clean pocket to step up into.
