O'Connell just isn't ready. If people are satisfied with tanking the season to develop O'Connell, then I say go for it. But the guy came into this league with tons of raw talent, but horrible mechanics. At this point, O'Connell is not an upgrade over Cassel. Maybe in a month or two he may be, but I find it hard to believe he has corrected all his mechanics problems at this point in the season. Like it or not, Cassel is the best chance for the Pats to win at this point.
