Matt Cassel only had one good year and that was in the Patriots offense. When Cassel had gone 10-6 after stepping in for a Tom Brady ACL injury. Trying to live up to the hype of that year, Cassell was traded to Kansas City Chiefs. He had played mediocre and was benched his last two seasons with the Chiefs, than going on to play with the Viking where he was later replaced with Teddy Bridgewater. After being released from the Vikings the Buffalo Bills had decided to give him a chance as a starter where he eventually lost to Tyrod Taylor who was a backup to Joe Flacco in Baltimore.
Brandon Weeden also had a checkered past as well. Playing in the minor league he had decided to come back and play football at Oklahoma State just for fun and eventually became really good. As he lead the Big 12 in passing and broke numerous records for the Cowboys. One catch he was older than everyone else. When entering the NFL Draft Weeden was 28 years old and wasn’t necessarily a rookie. The browns (LOL) took a chance on him in the late first round and he had flashes of a being a starter but later stunk up the dawg pound. Because of his bad play Brian Hoyer became his replacement and the team later drafted Johnny Manziel which put Weeden 3rd on the depth chart later leading him to be released from the team. Weeden has been the backup for the Cowboys for two straight years and how he is the starter.
What is there to do Jerry?! You lose your two main playmakers on Offense and have a young but talented receiver corps but unproven and mediocre at best quarterbacks on your depth chart. Give it some time, As Weeden does in fact know the playbook while Cassel knows absolutely nothing so far. In a couple weeks if Weeden doesn’t live up to par of America’s team look for Cassel to step in and take over for the loss of Tony Romo.
