When Brady went down, I thought that the season was lost. But these guys fought through adversity and have been a pleasant surprise. Matt Cassel was not on my gift list at the beginning of the season. Most of you know this. He has really surprised me and I give the guy big props. He has stepped up and has given our team a CHANCE to make the playoffs. Don't get me wrong, when Brady is HEALTHY, there is no other QB I want leading my team. However, Cassell is our man and he's done a great job in Brady's absence. MUCH PROPS MATT! If he leaves in the offseason, so be it. I wish him luck, the guy deserves to be a starter in this league. He's earned it, IMO. We Patriots fans better realize just how lucky we are. We have one of the best if not the best HEAD COACHES in the league. If there was any doubt of how great BB is, this season is proof positive, end of story. Take a look at our IR list and then look at our record. That is a credit to COACHING. Most teams in this league crash and burn when they lose their starters. Our team has survived. Now if all goes well, our guys will have the opportunity to make some noise in the post season and then....ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.
