I guarantee you that not even Brett Favre would have been able to perform well behind an inconsistent O-Line like ours. The line's job is to utilize Cassell's strengths (which are very few) and weaknesses, then work to fully protect him from having to use those same weaknesses. Protecting Cassell from being sacked 50% of the time will throw off any rhythm he could develop to be a better passer.
According to pff cassel has the 5th best line. Stop making excuses for him.
