    I'm guessing that Belichick has been throwing crazy defenses at Cassel all week to see how he reacts. Sure, there will be surprises, but I bet we escape the Trashlands with a W and some confidence for young "Brady Jr".

    exactly....

    Cassel has been running the same O as Brady for the past 3 years. He has been playing against the Patriots D, and been coached by BB....

    he is stepping into the best situation a backup can step into.

    When was the last time Dr. Z practiced with Moss, Welker, Maroney, Morris, and the Oline.

    the last 2 times the jets played in foxboro...we DID have trouble with their defense . we can attribute it to bad weather and sloppy field but the jets defense is going to be quite a challenge for our o line and cassel .

    The Jets are a 1.5 point favorite according to this morning paper.

    So, *Dr Nut predicts a huge upset. Patriots 24 Jesters 17.

    * Dr Z is not a real Dr. and neither is Dr Nut.

    This is a great feeling... waiting to see what we've got, basically. God, how sweet would it be to hang a few extra TDs on these guys, after all the "Pats are dead" stuff...

    I don't see it happening, but ohhhhh what an entertaining afternoon it would make for!

    Re: Dr Z on week 2

    He says Matt Cassell had been schooled in a very good system, but his baptism last week came against one of the league's doggiest teams.

    If the Chiefs are ONE of the doggiest teams, the Dolphins ARE the doggiest team.

    What kind of logic says the Pats are going to lose because they only beat the Chiefs by 7, and the Jets will win because they beat the Dolphins by 6?????

    Re: Dr Z on week 2

    why do I feel it is going to basically come down to who can push the pile and control the line of scrimmage? Smoke and mirrors only go so far if you can't stop the run or run the ball yourself.

    Re: Dr Z on week 2

    This is why the Super Bowl loss was so frustrating... it made all the idiots with their ridiculous justifications think they were right because the result was the same.

    "The Patriots, by only beating the Jaguars and Chargers by around 10 points, are on the decline. The Giants, by only beating their opponents by around 3 points, are on the rise. Therefore, the Giants WILL beat the Patriots."

    The logic is inherently flawed, but because of "any given Sunday", now that bs theory was proven correct in those idiots eyes.

    If the Jets win on Sunday, it won't be because the Pats are somehow not good with Cassel because he only beat the Chiefs. But Dr. Z will run with his own ego :rolleyes:

    Maybe Dr Z was catching a few so he must have missed the playoff game and 2007 week 1.

    Maybe the Jets will blitz 12 or drop 13 in zone coverage.

    Where do these peckerheads come up with this stuff?

    Dr. Z actually said that Matt will face "an afternoon of weirdness." Isn't that, like, every afternoon in the Zimmerman household?

    Do any of these idiots realize that Mangini has no film on Cassell that is relevant. Mangini has to go into the game with a vague game plan ... that has to be worth something. Cassell will have 4-5 games of teams feeling him out which will give him some time to adjust. If he can be @75% of Brady that will be awesome.
