    While we may have been in deep doo-doo if Brady had gone down last year, the prospect doesn't scare me as much this year. Not wishing, just saying.:D

    Vinny could have gotten it done with this group.

    Yes. Defending him would be a game of "Try to rattle the youngster with pressure." (As opposed to "Try to rattle the youngster with complex schemes.)

    Moss and Welker WILL get open, except against extreme coverage. Stallworth and Watson (and Faulk) WILL get open if the coverage against Moss and Welker is extreme.

    Maybe I am wrong, but I do not fear Cassell coming in to replace Brady. Yes, we might lose a few (1-3) games than we might otherwise. However, he has been quite impressive in working with an inferior group of receivers his first two years here while getting a graduate education from the Belichick and Brady masters.

    Compared to Colts backup Jim Sorgi, I feel much better with Cassel and most other backup QB's in the league!

    Bledsoe will sign a Vet-Min contract with us at some point this season. Retire a Patriot with another ring on his hand. What could be sweeter for a bona-fide Patriots HOFer (Not NFL).

    Go ahead and call Drew a statue, but all we have in reserve is a "Castle". If Brady went down I'd take the vet anyday. I like Cassell, but I like Vets better. I think our coach does, too.

    Actually, I would rather have Cassell. You might think I'm crazy
    Drew may be a veteran but he retired for a reason.

    In little league baseball we had this thing called "the pitching machine," or just "the machine." It actually scarred me for life, because just before it was decided we would use "the machine," coach tried us all out at pitcher to see if any of us could get the ball over the plate, and I was poised to become the little league Dice-K. But that didn't happen. The Machine pitched that season, and I fed balls into it.

    That said: The Machine could throw to this stable of WRs.

    Random story, I turned around and bumped into Cassel two weeks ago at Baseball Tavern before the start of a Sox game. I was the only one among my group who recognized him. Just wished him luck and shook his hand real quick, I didn't want to get in the way of his super-hot groupies. It was great for him, it seems like he can mingle with the crowd relatively un-noticed.

    I'll be quite satisfied to watch him in preseason and then see no more of him during the season unless we have a humungous lead.

    What's amazing is how few current Patriots played with Bledsoe.

    On offense I think it's Troy (if he's "current"), Faulk, and Brady himself.

    On defense it's Seymour, Bruschi, and Vrabel.

    On STs it's Izzo and Paxton. And I think Seymour, Vrabel, Izzo, and perhaps Paxton were all new with the Pats Bledsoe's final year. While Brady of course didn't see the field for as long as Bledsoe was playing.

    I could throw to this stable of WR's...if, of course, they limit their routes to ten yards downfield and if none of those nasty Linebackers or Defensive Linemen get within ten feet of me.

    haha, yes he can throw to them. Whether it gets picked off or incomplete is another story.
