Pioli was just on a power trip and thought he could turn Cassel into another brady, the problem is you need Mcdaniels or charlie weis or bill o'brien to do that.
There's nothing wrong with getting Cassel. The arrogance is more in the decision not to surround the team with options. If Pioli swung and missed a few times, I'd be okay with that. He didn't. And so, we don't had a guy like Andy Dalton. We were told that Cassel would have QB competition, and yet Pioli didn't even take a sniff at Brock Osweiler, Russell Wilson, or Nick Foles.
Power trips don't last 4 years. You can justify going one year without trying to find options. 4 years is just embarrassing.
