    Just for the record, I'm watching the Miami tape - stress therapy - and observed Cassel's first dropped shotgun snap. At the time it was reported Hoch had snapped it low, which it came in about thigh level, but Koppen used to hit Tommy in the shins about 6 times a game. Where things broke down is Cassel started back pedalling before he secured the ball, just like a receiver looking upfield before finishing the catch. Tommy is very good at staying in his catcher's stance until he gets the ball - hopefully Cassel being a pitcher won't hold back his development. :cool:

    I saw a lot of poise and talent out of Cassel after he got a few snaps under his belt. I was very encouraged. I think at 23 years old, BB/Pioli have secured themselves a good young QB to back up Brady. He's already shown me more than Rohan Davey ever did. I feel alot more comfortable with Brady's backup situation than I did before seeing that game.

    he recovered nicely

    at least he knows that securing the ball is the first priority of a broken play
