    NFL.com is running a poll.

    Who is the best QB in the AFC East?

    Cassel is getting creamed.

    Vote and change that.

    6% Matt Cassel, Patriots

    42% Brett Favre, Jets

    13% Chad Pennington, Dolphins

    39% Trent Edwards, Bills

    Although this poll is not as important as voting in the AFC defensive player of the week for Richard Seymour

    NFL.com GMC Sierra Defensive Player of the Week Watch Highlights and Vote

    Vote for Matt.

    to save some time for people it appears you can vote more than once but it seems as though the vote only counts once. I voted a few times but the last time I voted I noticed the vote count stayed the same.

    MC doesn't have the history or experience like those other QB's so I'm not surprised he ranks dead last. In terms of what the position calls for, he is getting the job done.

    Did you think it should or would be different? :confused:

    A Hofer and two decent Vets ahead of a first time starter in a non PATs
    poll is not very surprising to me.

    Surprised no! But it as a 100% certified homer, I still want him to win. (I voted for every Patriot to go to the pro-bowl.)

    I don't think he's the best QB in this division either but I voted for him anyway. Looks like everyone that works for ESPN is voting in that poll based on the Favre love.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    Favre is a first-ballot HOF quarterback, one of the best ever. I don't think it's a stretch that there's a measure by which he's the "best" QB in the division.

    This isn't a "who do you like best poll" it's your opinion on who is the best QB. I would rank Cassel last without thinking.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.


    Well.....what the heck would you expect.....????
    He is #4 on this list ....no matter how you want to slice it.......reality check.....

    Cassel has filled in admirably as a game manager.....has made some huge mistakes like last week....but haven't come back to bite him yet because we have not played any top shelf D's yet......Now 2 INT's against the Gints .....would come back to bite him and this team......I for one, am not surprised by this poll in the least......hey...at least he gets 6%!!!

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    Huge mistakes is probably an overstatement, as his final line does look worse than the way he played. My biggest complaint is he's still taking far too many sacks, some of which can be blamed on the O-line, but not all of them.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.


    Well yea he's still got a lot of developing to do, but huge mistakes haven't been a part of his game at all this year, especially not last week.

    Seems stc is blaming Cassel for the INTs last week that were nowhere near his fault, but then again stc hates Matt Cassel.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    I didn't even notice the QB poll, just Seymour's and the Pro Bowl so thanks for posting this one! I'll definitely throw in a vote for Matt everytime I vote for Sey, why not :) I don't like his chances to win but why not at least give him a click? Like someone else said, too bad this poll wasn't done at the end of the season.

    If you want to vote for Jet, that is your choice. I would sooner poke my own eyes out.

    Right, but people who don't hate the jets are going to vote for who they think is the best QB, and Cassel aint even close.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    Who cares if he is getting creamed? He hasn't proved anything yet. Brett Favre is the best QB in the division now despite his gunslinging ways because he's a first ballot HOFer. Can you say the same for Cassel? The only QB you MIGHT have a gripe against is Trent Edwards being rated so highly. Anyways it's good to keep Cassel humble, because the truth is that he has a LONG way to go in terms of improvement.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    Cassel isn't the best QB in the AFC East. Edwards is, assuming that Brady's out because he's hurt.

    Edwards > Favre

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    Well, neither is Favre. Edwards is the class of the division and then I would put Pennington as a distant second with Favre and Cassel pulling up the rear. Favre is too much of a liability to be near the top. He leads the league in INTs.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    I totally agree. I put Favre and Cassel around the same point. Favre when on can do a heck of a lot more than Cassel, but Cassel won't make the costly mistakes Favre does.

    P.S. Who cares about a fan poll anyway. People as a collective are stupid.

    Re: Cassel getting hammered in NFL poll.

    I'd actually rather have Cassel than Favre, assuming that we're talking about a playoff team. I'd much, much rather have Edwards than either one of them, and I could probably even be talked into Pennington, but I just don't see the value in a QB who turns it over as often as Favre does. You can win the SB with a QB who doesn't make mistakes (Brady in 2001, Dilfer and Brad Johnson come to mind just in the past few years), but you're not going to win it with someone who serves up interceptions.

    Why do people care about polls anyways?

    If anything, I'm happy people think Cassel is the worst QB in the division and I'm happy when I browse through prediction threads on other sites to see people picking the Pats to lose their game. History has shown flying under the radar is the way to go.

    Yeah - the last thing we want is for this team to be disrespected. If there's one thing you can say about this team it's that they don't respond well to a lack of respect or negative comments. :rolleyes:

    Seriously, I might just go to the poll to vote for anyone but Cassell just to keep that disrespect card rolling. And let's hope they don't have any more major lapses this season but predictably, Harrison and others on the team predictably used a perceived lack of respect to bring the team together and play to their capabilities, if not overachieve given the injuries.

    It's always funny to me that so many don't seem to understand this - that to the Patriots, Disrespect is what spinach is to Popeye!

    So let's keep the disrespect going and maybe, just maybe, we'll be in a good position to make a good post season run!
