If you think Reid is not going to consider one of those guys you're crazy. Both played in a pro style West Coast offense.
And the accuracy concerns around Glennon are not justified. You put any QB in college on that NC State offense and they completing below 60% just like Glennon.
I agree. But if Reid doesn't go QB in the 1st it's not likely he will in the second either. There's a strong possibility that Reid will give Cassel a chance. Andy Reid's system offense is very QB friendly. Guys like Feeley and Garcia won 9 out of 11 games under his system. Let's look at Cassel for a minute though. After adjusting to a new offense, in his second year, he lead the chiefs to a 10-6 record. In 2011, Jamal Charles went down, and that, among other things, contributed to a modest 7-9 season. 2012 he had to adjust to a new offense....and the record speaks for itself. Why would Cassel work under Reid? Simple: System QB.
Guys like Schaub ( and to an extent, Flacco) are System QBs. You won't see Schaub drop back 40 times, to try to come back from a deficit in order to win you a game. Dude needs his play action and the threat of the run to prosper. A better example, and the epitome of a system quarterback, would be Alex Smith. Look at that guy pre and post Harbaugh. So chances are, Reid will roll with Cassel, and draft a guy like Dysert (Who's already running a West Coast like offense) in the mid rounds to back Cassel up. But then again that's all in theory.
Sometimes an RBI or an in the park Homerun is just as good as trying to hit a 500 ft solo HR off an Aroldis Chapman 100+ MPH fastball lol.
