Madden NFL 10 Cover Athlete : EA SPORTS Cassel is a canidate, I love the summary..... You and Matt Cassel probably have a lot in common. Before week 2 of the 2008 season, you both probably started the same amount of NFL games...ZERO. In fact, if by some chance you started one college football game, even if it was at Central Toledo College of Cosmetology, that would still be one more than Matt Cassel ever did. So who could blame anyone for thinking the Pats season was over just as fast as it begun when Brady went down week 1? Well, Cassel had other plans. His plans included leading New England to an 11-5 record, throwing for almost 4,000 yards, and completing 63.4% of his passes. Add it all up and what do you get? $14 million and a ton of Chiefs jersey sales. Matt Cassel knows better than anyone the importance of Fighting For Every Yard... because he almost never got the chance to. But I am hoping Manning gets it. I believe in the curse!
