    ESPN - NY Jets vs. New England - Box Score - November 13, 2008

    At the half:

    14/24 passing, 199 yards, 1 td, no int's. 4 rushes for 42 yards.

    Good, productive, smart, mistake-free game so far. Just needs to improve red zone vision.

    [edit] Finishes with 400 yards, 30 for 50 attempts, 3 td's, 65 yards rushing, and a final drive with no timeouts left, 1 minute remaining on the clock, starting on his own 35, and scoring the game tying TD on the last drive.

    Cassel is looking like the real deal. Too bad he'll be with the Jets next year.

    True, can't complain about Cassel tonight. It's just too bad nobody around him wants to win.

    McDaniels not having a very good night either. Another possession killed on 3rd and short.

    McDaniels is at best an above average OC... who too often out-smarts himself.

    3rd and 1 and you go SHOTGUN and throw for 15 yards!?

    I'll say he's having a good game. What a way to scramble and hit Welker!

    I LOVE MATT CASSEL

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    Yea, I've defended the guy in the past but I think he's played a little too much Madden where that FB dive is automatic on 3rd and 1 even if you just ran it. But even that wasn't as bad as the shotgun throw, our defense just made a couple huge stops and it's like we're TRYING to lose this.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    The way he's playing now and has been the past 3 games, Cassel is better than 50% of the NFL's starting QB's... which is an amazing pickup to select a guy who didn't even start in college.

    NICE throw to Watson for the TD.

    Nice 2-pt conversion to Gaffney.

    The guy is growing as a player right before our eyes.

    The Pats are doing better when I post in here so I'm going to treat this like the game thread.

    Man, if he could learn to throw the deep ball half as well as Brady, he'll be a top 10 QB, easily.

    That was rough, the referee was like that ref in the college game obviously trying to help one team win.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    Great game by Cassel! We may not win the game, but all the talk about Cassel not being able to bring back a team from several TDs down was just plain wrong.

    Can anyone confirm the following? I heard on WEEI this week that if the Patriots offer Cassel $1.5M that if another team signs him the Patriots will receive that team's 1st round draft pick. Not sure whether or not to believe it based on the source.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    Wow, Matt Cassel just drove the team from his own 35 yard line, 1 minute left, no timeouts remaining, for a game-tying touch down.

    ICE in his veins.

    Over 400 yards passing today too.

    Win or lose, a defining game for Cassel. That took some marbles!

    Nope. Whoever said that is mistakenly assuming that Cassel is a restricted free agent next year; at the moment, he'll be an unrestricted free agent.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    I gotta say..... I was never big on Cassel early on, but lately, he's really taken this team on his sholders. He always willed the win tonight, despite some terrible play in all 3 phases of the game.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    Cassel has actually shown multiple examples of bringing this team back in the 4th quarter, not just for this game.

    The guy is resilient.

    Re: Matt Cassel is having a good game

    That last play was straight up amazing, a perfect throw on the run to a covered receiver to tie it up with 1 second on the clock, you won't see a better play all year. I jumped out of my chair and yelled "holy ****!", it was that good.

    You have to give him a lot of credit, he has gotten so much better from the first game of preseason to now. You can still see a few bits of rookie play and jitteryness but he is really developing into a solid NFL QB.

    I still want Brady back, he'd be eating the league alive right now. But Cassel earned himself a lot of money and respect tonight.

    We need to sign Cassel as soon as possible. 3 years 8 mill.

    The longer we wait the tougher it will be to keep him, if we want to keep him. Franchising him is a dumb move, signing him to a short multi-year deal gives us flexibility to trade but also insurance for Tom.
