    Sounds a bit like an intelligent Borges, but he is skeptical that the Pats "gave away" Cassel....

    Trade for Cassel, like Pioli and Haley, looks good on paper - Kansas City Star

    It's similar to "funny Rob Schneider movie"

    Referring to his column yesterday, where he said something to the effect that BB would stab his own mother in the back...

    BB respects Pioli's opinion as an equal to his own.

    To suggest Pioli is wrong about Cassel suggests BB is also wrong. They both liked the guy enough to keep him on the roster for FOUR years.

    Maybe both are wrong about Cassel, but it's not like BB has been holding this back from Pioli for four years just in case he became the GM of a team that might trade for their backup QB.

    I get the feeling that none of these guys actually watch game tape. If they did, they'd realize that Cassel didn't have the deep ball to consistently take advantage of Moss. If he did, he'd have thrown for a lot more than 21 TDs. As it stands, you can argue that the double-coverage that freed Moss up made it easier for him, which is true, but this isn't a Randall Cunningham/Jeff George/Todd Bouman/Daunte Culpepper situation, where their only real skill was that they could capitalize on Moss's speed by hitting him deep after he beat his man.

    I was not as euphoric over Cassel's play this year. He did better than expected but he left alot to be desired also. He ran the plays called, he had trouble improvising and usually ate the ball or ran when the play broke down. He showed some leadership skills but nothing extraordinary. His deep balls were weak and his sideline passes took too long to develop. He completed a lot of stuff over the middle that was given to him. IMO he's a better than average QB for the league but nothing extraordinary. He'll do well on a great team and he will not be the difference maker on a poor team like Elway or say Marino were.

    We were lucky to not make the playoffs ... because if Cassel was exposed more than he already was then we would have gotten nothing for him except a bag of used footballs. Chief fans will wish they used the 1st round pick on Stafford or Sanchez ... it's a gamble on Pioli's part ... a big gamble because next year he may not have a top 10 or top 12 pick ... but then that's his problem. We're going to turn that #2 into a #1 for next year ... like the one Goodell took from us ... and that's his problem also.
