That depends... Obviously with Cassel you are getting a young QB to run your system for years.

The Jets did the "Favre thing" this year, where you basically make a run for the SB... If you take Cassel, you know it may take a couple years to get your team in place, and set for a run. You take Favre, you are goijng for it that year. Jets went for it, and lost bigtime... They could not have been more lucky grabbing Favre and then watching Brday go down 4 minutes into the season... and somehow Miami walks away with the division (and then gets embarrassed in the playoffs)... this was just a disaster season for Favre and Jets IMO.
