BB/Pioli must not place a great deal of value on this spot. Matt Cassell, even before injury....lacks mobility, has happy feet and little experience. Matt Guttierez- a long term project at best. Now with Cassell injured they bring in 43 yo Testaverde. If Brady gets hurt, it seems they could do better with a more experienced but not completely past his prime backup. Kelly Holcomb for example. Look at some of the better backups in the NFL: Brad Smith, Marques Tsuiasospo, Patric Ramsay, Damon Huard, Charlie Batch, Kerry Collins, Tim Rattay, David Garrard, David Carr, Brian Griese, Seneca Wallace It seems that this is a real weak area for the Patriots and in this era, the likelihood of needing a strong backup quarterback at some point during teh season is high.
