*shrug*
That's not all that far from the truth. The fact of the matter is that it's Cassel's job to deliver the ball and Moss' to get open. The fact that they don't have the same kind of chemistry is unfortunate, but a lot of it can be pinned on Cassel's long throwing motion. He holds onto the ball WAY too long. He has problems pulling the trigger even on the short stuff. He completes it, but the timing isn't ideal and he minimizes our receiver ability to get YAC. Back in the day Brady was was a whole lot better than Cassel that.

Cassell has a great offensive line and excellent receiving corps to work with, and he is putting up just average numbers. I believe that most NFL QB's would be able to put up either equal or better stats if they were given a full year in the Patriots system. A team will overpay for Cassell this offseason, and if it is a team like the Lions or Niners, they will be very upset. Because if he's putting up average numbers with the Pats offense around him, he won't stand a chance playing with a bad offense.

I agree. I think he could peak out as average in the NFL, but I'm very curious to see what he could do playing for a different team.

As far as tagging him, I don't see it. It would be really stupid too.

No way in hell. That tag on the QB position is so costly, it could backfire on them and they don't spend money frivously.

Cassell will end up being the QB of the Lions next year. Bank on it.

For some reason I could easily see Cassell as a Niner next year.

You're all wrong. All free agents of dubious talent and solid name recognition are automatically awarded a top 3 contract with the Raiders. It's written into the NFL bylaws.

Hey, then they could make Jamarcus Russell lose some weight and become the left tackle and kill two birds with one stone!

I think it's amazing that this kid has even looked this good considering he's never started a game at the college level.

He's missed a ton of open WRs, but honestly what can you expect given that fact?

It's too bad the Pats put this kid in this situation. It's basically the arrogance of Bill Belichick who refused to go pick up a veteran QB. The Pats should at least be 7-3 right now, possibly 8-2 or 9-1 if they had just signed a veteran QB.

But the arrogance of Belichick, he wanted to stick with a no name guy just like Brady once was

I still dont think its that great of a story. if he was a back up at SW Missouri Technical University then I would says WOW AMAZING!!

HE was arguably a top 10 QB in college without even stepping on the field. Rusty? Yes. Loss of talent and natural abilities, no.

As long as he doesn't sign the tag, they could always rescind it whenever they want. And then he would be a free agent. Then again he could sign the tag, have that great amount of money guaranteed for one year, and wait for a trade or free agency the next offseason (without a cap?).

Btw, I've noticed some people say that, if he leaves in free agency, the Pats will let him go for nothing. Even Mike Lombardi said this. And it's wrong.

If Cassel signs a free agent deal this offseason, presumably a healthy deal monetary-wise given his position and the promise he's shown recently, then the Patriots are in line to get a great compensatory pick. Most likely a 3rd rounder if it's a big money deal, and chances are it could be.

If the Pats were to sign a free agent to a big deal, that could nullify the loss of Cassel, but I don't think that's likely for the Patriots. Who would they sign to that type of deal, like they did with Adalius Thomas? Perhaps Karlos Dansby? They're more likely to re-sign Wilfork and maybe some other players.

I think Cassel will be in great demand, and for some good reason because he's down some real promise the last few weeks.

Especially considering Matt Stafford is the only promising prospect in the Draft, once he's gone teams are going to be screwed. Draft Josh Freeman in the first round? No way for me, I'll take Cassel by a mile and use that first rounder elsewhere (DL, OL, etcetera).

Then again he's no Jim Sorgi. :D

I'd also look to get Matt Leinart from Arizona, especially if I was a west coast offense team.

I totally agree with you on this. Im still not even comfortable yet watching him as i know he cant hit Moss wide open with the deep ball, and yes im sure Moss isnt going 100% because why bother if the kid cant even hit you at 75%. Not that thats the mentality i want all my football players thinking like but i see where its coming from. I do think making comparisons with Brady after one great game dosent make sense. I agree with turtle power, lets wait a few more games to see how he plays. We still have some big ones left. Pittsburg comes to mind where im sure Cassell isnt going to play well against.

Cassell imo, will be a good NFL QB elsewhere in the league, what he needs though is to sit for a year in the new city wherever he goes and adjust to the system. There's not a lot of places who can afford to shell out the money he'll garner to have him sit for a year and not a lot of fanbases that will allow it, but its what i'd want if I was signing him.

The only places that have that luxury are Arizona (If they're done with leinart as Warner, is probably only good for one more season), Tennessee (if they're done with young which I doubt), New York Jets (how long can favre play?), and Carolina.

The only places that have that luxury are Arizona (If they're done with leinart as Warner, is probably only good for one more season), Tennessee (if they're done with young which I doubt), New York Jets (how long can favre play?), and Carolina.
Arizona won't re-up with Warner prolly. I think he's done with football, he has no contract so he has no responsibility to play anymore and I think at his age after this season he'll decide the time has come to let his playing days fall by the wayside. But saying that just to say that Warner isn't under contract with Arizona so they don't have that luxury.

I dunno where Matt will end up, but imo, Minnesota is going to come calling for him. They're a team that needs a proven QB, not drafting a rookie and hoping for the next Ryan/Flacco (whichever you prefer) they have a lot of vets and a team that is built to win now. Matt would come into a good situation with a good offensive line and a massive ground attack. Imo, that's the best fit for Cassel and his sizeable contract.

Btw, I've noticed some people say that, if he leaves in free agency, the Pats will let him go for nothing. Even Mike Lombardi said this. And it's wrong.

If Cassel signs a free agent deal this offseason, presumably a healthy deal monetary-wise given his position and the promise he's shown recently, then the Patriots are in line to get a great compensatory pick. Most likely a 3rd rounder if it's a big money deal, and chances are it could be.

If the Pats were to sign a free agent to a big deal, that could nullify the loss of Cassel, but I don't think that's likely for the Patriots. Who would they sign to that type of deal, like they did with Adalius Thomas? Perhaps Karlos Dansby? They're more likely to re-sign Wilfork and maybe some other players.
He's going to be a N.O. Saint, sir.

I'm looking forward to Cris Carter continuing to call Cassel a high school quarterback this Sunday. Idiot.

I think you're reading the tea leaves wrong. ;)

Well I think they're similar now sure. But of course, it isn't just the surroundings that make an ELITE quarterback. good surroundings can nurse a QB and make him look better to a point, but an elite QB is an elite QB is an elite QB. Tom was able to become one, but that is certainly no indication that anyone else can too, or else Rex Grossman would have.
