    Although some of them still can't believe it's not the system.

    If that were true, couldn't the Mangina just copy this lauded "system" ???

    They aren't signing him - they can trade for him if they like though. No way he won't be Franchised at this point. I'd take a #2 pick - but from the Jets it's this year's and next year's #1.

    If they actually want him and they don't get him I'm sure they'll file tampering charges.

    Re: Jets Fans Want Cassell

    yeah sure. joe montana , steve young etc played in one of the most famous systems.
    Cassel has really earned what he got. Forget about the pats chances, his whole future as a football player after the preseason hung in balance once he stepped in to replace brady.If he had stunk , no one wouldve signed him.He has been playing with house money since game 2.That itsself shows how he can handle pressure.May not be the same player without moss and welker but no one is.

    They can want, but can't have (or I hope)

    I would hate to see him go to the Jets.

    Some of the thread titles alone on that forum are just hilarious, I can only imagine reading through them.

    When you hear people say that a guy who is very successful is just a product of a system, ask yourself why don't just copy the system.

    It is fair to point out that Cassel has some great talent at skill positions. Some compare to 2001, but if we consider Welker and Troy to be a wash, we are left with Moss, Watson, Morris/Jordan vs. Patten, Wiggins, and A Smith. Not exactly an even trade.

    Cassel should do fine -- question is whether he goes to a team like the Bears with some talent but need a QB, or a probably hopeless project like the Lions. (Maybe the Lions could qualify for some kind of bailout.)

    If by some strange chance the Pats don't franchise Cassel (well if you listen to Andy Gresch there is no way the Pats will ever consider franchising Cassel), the Jets will go after him hard. Favre hasn't exactly set the league on fire and the Jets would happily dump Favre and his $12 million salary for Cassel. I expect them to dump Favre even if he wants to come back anyway.

    There is no such thing as a "system" quarterback or a "system" running back or a "system" waterboy. I have never heard a genuine, bonafide football person use that term - not once.

    I seem to recall most Jets fans being ecstatic when they traded for Favre, so don't read too much into those threads.

    They did... at least they tried to... by hiring Mangini.

    Reading the thread, it is funny that none of them understand the franchise tag system. Yeah, no one would trade for Cassel because they know that Brady is coming back. Yeah, so no team who will really want Cassel would want the exclusive opportunity to sign him. The Pats may not get what they want for Cassel, but someone will jump at the opportunity to trade away a draft pick to sign Cassel rather than watch Cassel's price go up and up on the open market and possibly lose him to another team.

    A month ago, these very same Jets fans were praising Favre as the next coming of Broadway Joe. Now they are begging the franchise to sign anyone and just get rid of him. Funny how all that works...

    It's been a roller coaster ride with Favre and the Jets fans all year. They were ready to get rid of him in October too. He went on a month run where he played well and they fell in love with him and now he is sucking again.
