    The poll on the 5th quarter, showed that only 8% of the fans think we could win without Brady this year.

    I can't think of a Better Guy to Bring in then Bledsoe.

    Maybe his ego would be too Big.

    Or Maybe BB would be to Big.

    But I'm sure Kraft wouldn't mind, and as much as Bledsoe drove me crazy with all those turnovers, with this O-Line giving the Qb's all day to pass, I Think he would Light it Up!!!

    I just know I don't sleep well at night with Cassel as our #2.

    This is like asking if I'd call my ex-girlfriend if my wife left me. I rather not think about either scenario.

    If your Ex had something left in the tank, then you could at least fool around until you found something better.

    Cassel, then Guts, then Flutie, then, and only then, does Drew Bledsoe come to mind.

    I'd throw Grogan out there. He was all balls anyway.

    Just put the neck collar on and send everybody long.

    Bledsoe > Cassell. No question. The only uncertainty is whether Bledsoe is in game shape.
    Also this O-Line is perfect for Bledsoe; He'd get all the time he needs to find the open guy -- his glaring weakness was getting sacked when pressured instead of throwing it away; not as big an issue.

    In fact, I would say ask Bledsoe if he'd like to backup right now. Even if he says no, ask him if he'd be willing to get into game shape incase the unspeakable happens, and if it doesn't happen, get him on the roster so he's playoff eligible.

    I've said it before, we don't need a young, can't-start backup. We need a veteran who can come off the bench and score some points backup when spot starting. Although at this point, its probably too late to bring any veteran on board & expect them to learn the system.

    I believe in Cassel. I think the kid could handle it.

    I base this on nothing else than a hunch, LOL

    Drew brought this franchise up from the depths. But the guy just became shell-shocked over time. Watching him those last years in Dallas was painful, much like McNair now - proud warriors that have just taken too many hits. We have limited tape on Cassel, but he looked good in Miami in '05 when he played most of the game, and has looked good out there in limited action this year, save the one bad pick against Miami.

    I always will appreciate what Bledsoe did for this team, but the answer is no. Now let's never speak of this again.

    I don't know where you're coming from on this, honestly. I think it's easy to get caught up in weird fantasy scenarios for fun, though. But let's space ourselves from this as fans for a minute, and I think you'll see how silly this is in actuality.

    Can you imagine if the Dolphins had problems and running back and went to grab Ricky Williams again? Uh... wait.

    Can you imagine if the Bears got desperate and went back to Rex Grossman? D'oh! Sorry.

    oK How about if Leftwich healed up and Petrino pulled Harrington on a 2-game winstreak and put him in! Oh jeez.

    Well, my point is... Great scott. Imagine if Steve Young went down and they went and grabbed Joe Cool for the rest of the season. THAT would never happen. (And it's the better example too!)

    LOL I see where you're going with this, but like someone said in my other thread, this is an "awful" idea.

    Fair enough. I was going to ask if you had high school tape on Cassel.

    Bledsoe < Pennington. Bledsoe's "glaring weakness" was tunnelvision which resulted in poorly judged throws. I still try to forget that bewildered look on his face after he threw a pick at many a critical juncture. It was like he looke down field, seeing only his intended receiver, overlooking the fact that he was in double or even triple coverage. When he was intercepted, his face told a story - "where did that DB come from?"

    I'd put a restraining order on Bledsoe to not come within a hundred miles of gillette.

    While there's nothing wrong with your question and Bledsoe could win a Super Bowl with this offense, he's made it abundantly clear that he's retired. He was a great quarterback and got the shaft in 3 different cities. Much like Jake "the snake" Plummer, I think he took far too much of the blame for the failures of the team, and he's probably soured on the off-field nonsense more than the game itself.

    i always get annoyed when someone brings up bledsoe on this board, because evetually the bashers come out. leave him in peace. the real question should be, who's gonna be #3? if b.b. says cassell is the #2, thats good enough for me. in bb we trust. but who would be signed to be a backup to cassell, and gut? vinny is no longer an option, and please dont say flutie:bricks: none of this matters anyway. this a stupid thread. i cant believe we're even talking about this

    Drew would not be a consideration, there is Cassell then Guiteraz(sp) and a bunch of other guys on the fringe.. Bledsoe would get bored, throw a bunch of int's and then make excuses.

    BB and Bledsoe do not like each other. Do you want your coach and QB to have that between them, NO!

    NO WAY!

    This question makes me sick...S-I-C-K!!!!!

    No, no, no. Too old; too set in his ways; could never get us over the hump. Why would that have changed? You saw what he did in Dallas & Buffalo, after he left here - same old, same old only he was worse, as he did not have youthful exuberance on his side any more.

    What the hell is this? Stop this kind of talk. :mad:

    Besides, Brady's body guards won't let it happen.
