    It will be funny the next time he doesn't play so great and everyone on the board is calling for him to be benched again.

    I'm honestly very glad that he's getting some recognition for playing well, and hopefully it continues to boost his confidence for the final stretch.

    Re: Matt Cassel - AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Hmm. I dunno if I feel like he deserves this. He's still making sloppy throws and got very lucky that horrible pass to Kevin Faulk was ruled an incomplete pass instead of an interception.

    THAT SAID.

    I think Cassell's three biggest weaknesses (slow decision-making, occasional inaccurate throws, and poor deep ball) are correctable and will improve as he gets comfortable. I expect by the end of the season he'll be a fairly constant 80-90 point QB and the team will make it into the playoffs.

    Re: Matt Cassel - AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Also I have to admit it is kind of exciting seeing the guy improve on the field every game.

    I mean yeah, he got sacked 6 times, but there were a few plays where he actually STEPPED UP, where he would have just stood there before, pulled the ball down, and taken another ugly sack. But he did step up and deliver a strike with the pocket collapsing.

    Like some have said, the talent is there and the brain can get there. He's learning a little bit of pocket presence. Once he learns how to make his reads faster, see the whole field, and understand blitz schemes better, he could be a very tough QB for teams to plan against.

    Did anyone one else hear the sound of hundreds of Cassel bashers jumping out the window or was it just me.

    Congrats Matt.

    Re: Matt Cassel - AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Is this some kind of a joke?

    I 'dunno know what you folks are watching, but Matty is lucky he's surrounded by good talent. If we are lucky, by season's end he'll be able to check off, make a second or - holy cow - a third read, release the ball quicker, have better pocket presence, move smart....and this is if he actually survives the season. He reminds me of a dumber David Carr. See all those sacks Carr took? Took his a "career" too. He really isn't improving all that much people. The people around him have elevated their games....or so it seemed this past game.

    But he didn't throw for 300 yards. How is this deserved?!

    Oh a side note, congrats Matty. Now get ready to shred the Rams.
