    That's technically true, but they did trade for the rights to Drew Henson from the Texans. So they did get a developmental QB from the draft in 2004.

    Of course the fact it was Drew Henson doesn't make them look any smarter than if they had gotten noone :)

    Peter King is still a Grade-A moron. Nothing more than a latte-sipping Gossip QUEEN

    As much as I dislike King, it's hard not to agree with the points that he made here. Matt Cassel is a great story, and the fact that so many people on this board are so down on him just shows the nature of the vocal minority here.

    What's wrong with lattes, or sipping for that matter?

    Lattes are weak. I'd rather have a cappucino.

    The notion that the Patriots system produced Tom Brady and Matt Cassel is offensive to both Tom Brady and Matt Cassel. Obviously, Tom Brady is an elite QB, and Matt Cassel has done well in his time filling in. The credit for their success belongs to the QB's themselves. Peter King is almost insinuating Cassel doesn't have talent - clearly, he does. Of course coaching plays a role, but King seems to completely dismiss Cassel or Brady's talents.

    well one of the talents of brady which even weis said he liked as has BB via holley's book was he listened to the coaches and did what they asked him to as compared to bledsoe. he is a hall of fame and one of the greatest to ever play the game and pats probably wont be able to 'groom' anyone like him again but i think they do deserve some credit and also for following the approach of drafting or signing a undrafted QB almost every yr to try and develop every yr. that is what he is getting at. its quite possible if brady was drafted by arizona or detriot it maybe he wouldnt have been the same player.

    And suppose Tony Romo, instead of being a UDFA, had been -- say -- a sixth-round compensatory pick??

    Just to play Devil's advocate--would he have necessarily been the same player if some team had been "wise" enough to draft him in the third round?

    They are 5 and 3 because they have wins over KC 1-7, Rams 2-6, 49er's 2-6, and Broncs 4-4 (against and injured Cutler). They have ONE quality win versus the Jets in week two (who were just breaking in a new QB). I understand you play who you play, but let's not sugar coat it. 14-26 is the combined record of the teams you beat (9-23 if you remove the Jets).
