My point wasn't to support Cassel, far from it. Someone argued that there was more to the story this season than Cassel's ineptness and I agree. Coaching and talent procurement are also a big part of it. Those things were fixed in San Francisco, and now they're a SB contender. Point is, "fixing" the QB position isn't the only thing that needs to be addressed here.
