Matt Cassel has numbers like Tom Brady, but his coach says his real comparison should be to Drew Brees.
Cassel, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, has thrown 22 touchdowns and four interceptions this season — just one fewer touchdown and the same number of picks as Brady, his former New England Patriots teammate.

He fired four touchdowns in Kansas City's 42-24 blowout of Seattle on Sunday, posting a season-best 129.3 passer rating. Over the past nine games, Brady and Cassel have the league's highest passer ratings, according to STATS, LLC.

Brady has a 108.2 rating with 18 touchdowns and two interceptions the last nine games, while Cassel has a 107.7 rating with 21 touchdowns and two interceptions.

Drew is probably the most underrated athlete at the QB position along with Rodgers.

pretty hard to be "underrated" when you win sportsman of the year.

The Super Bowl win did a lot to turn the National pundits and reporters around on Brees. He's finally getting his due and as long as he keeps doing what he's doing, he'll be one of the faces of the league for a long time to come.
