Excuse Me, Mel?

LaddCorrespondent IFebruary 12, 2009

Mel Kiper held a press conference yesterday and spoke about Matt Cassel:

“He came out the same year the other three quarterbacks did [Alex Smith, Aaron Rodgers, Jason Campbell] and right now he’s better than those other three – and I’m including [Jay] Cutler in that. I would rather have Cassel than Cutler. So, to me, I think Cassel is more than worthy of being a guy that the Kansas City Chiefs or Detroit Lions go after. He’s played to the level of a No. 1 pick overall this year.”

Are you out of your tree, Mel? Stop speaking that demon language and come back to reality.  Cutler is the quarterback of the future, and Rodgers isn’t too far behind.  Cassel, on the other hand, can’t even throw a 10-yard out pattern.

Mel is officially on “expert” probation — one more remark like that and I will start doing the opposite of whatever he says.  Wake up!
