The real problem is not even attempting to have a plan B. Our plan B last year was Tyler Palko... to me that's just as bad as having Cassel as a starter. If your QB goes down, which he did... your backup didn't have the arm strength to throw a 20 yard out. Now maybe he fixed that problem this year... we're about to find out with Quinn on Sunday. But he's a huge question mark. He couldn't beat out Tebow... or even Orton.
Pioli has always had a plan B. The problem is that this plan is to shelter Cassel at all costs. Plan A, of course, being that Cassel actually does something worth a shit to deserve his spots on the roster and depth chart.
