Yes, this game was a stinker, and yes, Cassel did not play nearly as well as many of us had hoped/expected/wanted/etc. But remember the Patriots mission statement:
"We are building a big, strong, fast, smart, tough and disciplined football team that consistently competes for championships."
I don't know where this season is going. I really don't. The Pats could finish 3-13, they could finish 17-2. Obviously, BB doesn't know either, even though he clearly would prefer the Pats to win as many games as possible.
I don't know what moves, if any, BB will decide to make from here on out, especially with the trade deadline coming up this week. Maybe he's going to start O'Connell next week (though I doubt it), maybe he cuts Deltha O'Neal, maybe he re-signs John Lynch, etc. Whatever he does, it'll be something that he thinks will make the team better going forward. But I do know one thing for certain: he won't risk the future for the present. In other words, if trading for a veteran QB will take away most of the money they might use to, for example, re-sign Wilfork, then I don't see it happening.
"Momentum was quickly snatched away by New England, who once again proved that any Patriot, at any moment, can make a play." —Inside the NFL, Packers v. Patriots

Seriously, do you really believe that this team is going anywhere? BB isn't going to save them this year, get over it! Until BB puts his ego aside and acquires talent on defense, his schemes will never work. BB hasn't been scared anybody since '04. You can have the best game plans in the world but if you don't have the talent to execute it, then you will look like an average head coach.
Don't get me wrong, I still root for the Pats but come on! Cassel is playing like he's supposed to; like a guy who hasn't started a football game since high school. The loss of Tom Brady shows how great of a player he truly is.
To answer your question, the only trade I see is for a DB which is unlikely. I'd wait until the offseason.

We're going nowhere this year, I just hope he can fix this defense and this offensive line. This is sadly a wasted year, but I just hope at the end of the year the young guys develop on defense and Bill makes the right moves for the team in the offseason.
