I wouldn't say either is elite, but they are a few steps above Matt Casserole, for sure. I've never seen Casserole "win" a game for them.
When you factor the offensive talent coaching ability of Romeo Crennel and Brian Daboll, things get uglier.
I've already talked about Crennell's winning percentage as good if it were a MLB batting average for a middle-lineup player.
Daboll is a freaking joke.
On the Dolphins he coached them up to 20th in points
On his two years with the Browns, 09-10, Daboll led an offense that finished both years 30th and 29th points (31st and 32nd in yardage).
Before that he was the QB coach of the New York Jets for two years. They also happened to be one of the two worst years of both Chad Pennington and Brett Favre's careers, statistically.
So Matt sucks, but even if he had some degree of talent, that coaching staff isn't going to be able to get it out of him.
