I just LUV these stories u find!
Last drop-kicker was St. A's, Concord star
Oh man, great stuff Box. Thanks!
It was funny and charming to see the way the whole team celebrated the drop kick, especially Belichick. It also seemed to convey a pretty clear message about how seriously they were taking the Miami game.
But maybe above all, it was a nice way to give Flutie a tip of the hat while demoting him to third string.
When Cassell came off the field, Flutie gave him a big hug. Respect all around. That's the way it should always be, isn't it?!
The TEAM obviously had fun with this and played off Doug's enthusiasm and excitement, a good omen to keep the team loose at the start of the first week of playoff preparation. Cassell has been schooled by two veteran QBs, if we saw Tommy in his play, you could also say we saw Doug whenever he started moving outside the pocket. I love how the O-line was giggling and telling the Miami D that they were in for a surprise.
I could've sworn I heard Dan Davis shouting "Does he have it? Does he have it? It's good! it's good! Flutie did it! Flutie did it!!!!!!"
it was really cool
they probably had as much fun with that as they've had all season. BB knows how to take the pressure off, eh?
Cassel is pretty fast. he moves ok, just like he did in preseason he's got a good arm, but he doesn't have what they call "command" in baseball. he missed two open passes on the goal line, one to watson, and then the last play of the game. command comes with reps, for sure.
i still believe flutie is the #2 QB. i don't want to see either of them, but i dang sure don't want to see cassel come in there with flutie on the bench. i dearly belieeve that BB would not put in a rookie who has thrown, like 25 passes SINCE HIGH SCHOOL instead of a 22-year veteran.
