So New England could pull another player out of their ass and win three of four this time.

I didn't think so. He brought the team into field goal range, but he was 4 for 10 against a 3rd string defense. Not that great IMO.

Cassel impressed me a bit. Nothing really amazing IMO. I think he could be good in a bit with some more coaching. The next Tom Brady? Could be...

Actually, Pats fans are a bit disappointed by Matt's performance.

yes..against Falcons but last year he ripped preseason games and did very well in season final game when he got his chance to playm ore than 3 Qs

I'm not all that disapointed with Matt's performance. He struggled early on, but I thought he finished well.


Cassel reminds me a lot of Brady. I think Brady is a better pocket passer, but Cassel can scramble a bit better then Brady. They do look alike and they are both 6'4. Interesting. 8)

i like cassel a lot but i don't think he'll ever be aa star in the way Brady has become one. He could be a similar caliber regular season QB but i just can't see him developing that cerebral cool that has turned Brady into a playoff gold mine.

From what I saw of Cassell last year in the game against Buffalo he really impressed me. He seemed cool in the pocket and had good amount of zip to his pass.

I didn't get to catch the game against ATL but if he performed poorly I would chalk that up to playing with the 2nd or 3rd string O-line and having the same string WR's. It was also a preseason game so I don't judge much by it.

I think with a little more coaching and a few more reps that he could turn into a legitimate QB. I'm not sure if his future lies with NE, though. When his contract ends, I think he will generate a little buzz around him. Any team that is in need of a young QB that has been tutored by one of the best in the game (Tom Brady) and by a good coaching staff will try and land him.

i dunno. cassel feels to me like a billy volek (not necessarily with any regards to style or ability in a specific phase of the game), in that i think he'll be a very good back-up in the league, but just never quite more than a stop gap starter.

Chris Mortensen said about a week ago that Cassell is much more physically gifted than Brady and at this point in his career more talented than Brady was at the same point in his career.

Has anyone ever seen Matt Cassel and Tom Brady at the same time?

Career back-up? Perhaps. I'd still take Schaub over him...

That comparison was way overhyped at Georgia,D.J. is more menatally tough than Carter "was".Plus he isn't a drug addict.

actually he would have started when palmer left if it were not for leinart transfering into usc taking the starting job away from cassel. so yes he could have transfered when learning that leinart took the job away from him, but he decided to stay i guess for what reason i dont know.

08-18-2006, 05:40 PM
The guys a stud, Whenever i watch him play, i'm just stunned he was a backup all throughout college.

but why transfer when ur backing up the best qb in the ncaa for 4 years and receiving a top notch education which u can always fall back on

my personal belief....that he didnt plan on entering the nfl but got an agent just incase and was lucky enough to be drafted by the pats

And he had the whole Baseball thing going as well.

Yeah, it was pre season but, he was spectacular tonight. He's actually a lot more elusive than I thought he was. He needs to get off of the Pats.

Then who would back up Tom Brady? The last young Qb to back him up was Rohan Davey, and he was less than spectacular. Cassel signed a 4 year contract in 2005, and he'll probably just play it out with the team that took a chance on him in the later rounds of the draft. Anything can happen between now and then, and i don't want to jinx it.

Yeah, I was much more impressed with him against Arizona. He looked good.

If Rex doesn' pan out in Chicago, which I still think he's our QB for the future, but if he doesn't, I wouldn't mind the Bears trying to pick up Cassel. He's looked very good both last year and this year in the preseason and IMO he's going to be a darn good starting QB when he gets his shot.

I wasn't saying that as atheletes they were similar, i was saying that there careers would follow similar paths if cassel became a comboy.

If the Cowboys traded for Matt Cassel.. i would laugh for sooo long. Seriously so the guys done good in a couple of pre-season and played the tail end of some meaningless game last year and he's ready to start somewhere? Please, i hope the cowboys throw some picks at the patriots for this guy.
