Jason Garrett: Matt Cassel To Start on Saturday

A day removed from a 28-7 loss in Green Bay, where Matt Cassel completed just 13 passes for 114 yards, Jason Garrett confirmed that Cassel will keep the starting job on a short week to prepare for the Jets at home this Saturday.

After the loss, many fans (myself included) began to advocate for Kellen Moore to take over the starting job to close out the season. If Cassel struggles on Saturday, against a Jets defense that has played very well, this noise will only get louder.

    It seems that Garrett is only playing Cassel to appease the upper management (GMs) who believe that just because you have a start in the NFL in your career then you must be better than someone that hasn't had the opportunity to play. He is only doing Kellen a disservice by stringing him along instead of evaluating him on the field of play against real opponents. The likely-hood the Dallas Cowboys will win all three games with Cassell who only one game and that was due to Deshaun Jackson trying to show off. Without that bone head play the Redskins would have beat the Cowboys. It seems as if Cassell likes the vision or awareness to detect what the defenses are doing beyond lining up. Cassel also lacks a catchable ball. Kellen Moore, while not perfect, at least a much larger grasp on Linehan's system. Kellen Moore also knows how to make up for his lack of elite arm strength by passing the ball before the receiver breaks on their routes. A lot of naysayers have say that he had a terrible preseason, but if you consider the Detroit Lions troubles with every phase of their offense at the beginning of the season, it is obvious that Kellen made them look good during the preseason despite the absence of any protection from their OL.

    I think Kellen Moore will get his shot this season. It just may not be until the last game or two of the year.

    I'm on the "start Kellen Moore" bandwagon at this point, but I understand why they're playing Cassel at least on more week. Shoot… had Dez Bryant not dropped 3 balls on Sunday, that game AT LEAST would have been extremely close considering the first drop should have been a touchdown but instead was an interception.
