Cassel vs. T-Jack

So all this Matt Cassel talk got me thinking.  Here's a guy who steps into the best possible situation for a back-up Quarterback and I would say plays moderately well.  The big question: "How much of the success of those 11 wins was Cassel and how much was the the other 21 guys on the field?"  

If we are thinking about bringing this guy in to be our starting QB for, let's be honest what a big deal would mean, the next 6-7 years, then maybe the big question should be "How well would Tarvaris Jackson have done if he had replaced Brady instead of Cassel?"  Think about it.  I he had Randy Moss to lauch to deep and Wes Welker picking up twice the yards that Bobby Wade does, what would his stats look like?  Would he be the guy people are talking about spending 14 million on for a season?  

I think Cassel was probably less mistake prone than Tarvaris would have been, but Tarvaris could have had many more big plays than Cassel, especially with his running ability.  As we know Randy Moss is the ultimate security blanket deep.  If Tarvaris kept his deep passes in bounds Randy would have had a bigger season.

Of course what we really want to know is how good Cassel would be for us with the team we have in place, but its fair to think about what the reverse would bring.  Personally, I think Cassel only has the potential to be a slight upgrade for us.  Hardly worth selling the farm.

What do you guys think?
