    Heh,

    I remember an interview with Cassel where he talked about what it was like in College, being behind TWO Heisman winners. He figured he seen enough of that, and he gets drafted by the Patriots, and ends up BEHIND another Heisman winner: Doug Flutie. :eek: What are the odds, eh?

    You've got to like what Chris Kelsey had to say about Matt doing his job.

    Just speaks to his spirit. He worked hard and never complained. Great athlete.

    Actually, in a remarkable twist of fate, Cassel was ahead of Testaverde on the depth chart (he had to be--how else could he be Gostkowski's holder?).

    Anyone who has ever listened to a Matt Cassel interview might conclude it really is not that surprising. Matt has such an even keel type of personality I could easily see him walking on water like he was walking on a sidewalk ... whatever might be raging inside looks very calm on the outside ... just like Brady ... hmmm:cool:

    Technically, yeah. But if Brady had been injured last year it would have been Vinny, not Matt who would have started the next game...
    So he finally did beat out a Heisman winner!!!
