I'm guessing there's probably no doubt that Tom Brady has been a huge part in the development of Matt Cassel up to this point in Cassel's career. Will the ACL rehabilitation process prevent this from continuing? Or will Brady have the opportunity to provide the same guidance & support for Cassel that Drew gave him in 01? If the opportunity presents itself, I can see Brady almost being another offensive coach on this squad. We know he is basically 3rd on the list in the decision making process in the offense, right up there with McD and BB and is part of the game-planning meetings. Will this continue? Will he be on the sidelines during games to point out things to Cassel? I fear the answer is "no" simply due to the nature of the injury. But I sincerely hope not. Because I can see Brady really contributing, despite being on IR, this year by helping shape Cassel into a backup that can take this extremely talented team into the playoffs.
