That being said, he's got the smarts and work ethic to develop that. He has very good technique and can make any throw in the book. And qualities you like in a quarterback like pocket presence. So you'd expect his skill sets translate well to the NFL and WELL worth the risk. But I don't think we can claim he's flawless.
I think I was spoiled last year with Luck and RGIII. Its a big step down this year. I wish we had gone all in on RGIII.
Matt Cassel - 58.9 completion %, 13,495 yards, 82 TD, 57 INT, 24 Fumbles, 80.4 Passer Rating
Alex Smith - 59.3 completion %, 14,280 yards, 81 TD, 63 INT, 36 Fumbles, 79.1 Passer Rating
Do you realize the backups we have to this second coming of Matt Cassel have NEVER EVER thrown a regular season pass.
