Cassel is a gigantic failure.
That's easy to say.
I think Pioli is on the edge of it, definitely. But I'm asking a simple question -- if his main sin is Cassel, then what realistic alternatives did he have? He correctly assessed, and rejected, Sanchez, which appears to have been the right move.
sanchez was obviously the right move, as 2 AFC championship games proves...he walked into your stadium and took a shit on your franchise
but feel free to compare his accomplishments to Cassel's...
and your comparison to brees is embarrassing...don't be that one dumb pats fan
