    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.

    24/39

    2 TDs
    0 TOs

    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.

    Ghostkowski has been HUGE!

    Great comeback, now lets keep the momentum.

    Time for Cassel to enter Brady mode.

    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.
