Cassel sat behind Brady for three seasons learning the system before he got to play, and he didn't put up numbers close to Brady's. Cassel isn't a half bad quarterback, either. Cassel threw 21 TDs, 11 INTs, took 41 sacks, lost 5 fumbles, for a rating of 89 with the Patriots. Not bad by any stretch, but not Tom Brady good.
