Those numbers are misleading if you really break it down:
1-10 yards make up 46% of his pass attempts at a 66% completion rate. He was picked off in this area on 4% of his attempts.
Add in the passes from the LOS and you make up for 66% of his passes which were picked off 3% of the time.
from 11-20 yards which make up 22% of his pass attempts with a 47.5 completion rate has him at a 4% chance of an interception/attempt.
Then add in all passes past 11 yards and you get 34% of his passes at a clip of 6% chance of interception/ attempt.
Obviously, you don't want to throw it out longer than 10 yards with Cassel.
