OK, brace yourself for some rambling and madness. Or go on to another, more interesting thread... -------------------- Look at this picture. It will feel bad, but look. Now look at this one: Tom Brady is a field general. You can be Randy Moss or Chad Jackson. Don't hold up your end of the bargain and he will leave cleet prints on your a$s. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and a few others are field generals. They step to the controls and own whatever happens. They put the trust in you and you better make the play. Brady might be the biggest BAMF of that lot. Cassel has a lot to learn, but I think the thing he better learn first is to drive the high-end automobile that is the NEP like it's his last day on earth every time. The coach will not cut him for getting in Moss' face. He hesitates because he doesn't want to make a mistake. He feels like he has to live up to a high standard. And he does, but the first thing he has to do is realize that once he let's go of that ball, the responsibility is no longer his. If the Line is sucking, he needs to get in their faces. They need to be afraid to let him down. Cassel should have been in Moss' face about his drop. That was on Randy, not Matt.** Matt needs to fight his battles and not let the coach do it for him. When you watch these games, you can hear the QB's barking orders and making their counts LOUDLY. Cassel - not so much. To me, he needs his balls to drop and the rest will come into place. He needs to realize he's the effing QB now and it's time to run this army over the NFL like it is built to do. We can whine about the little things all we want, but personnel alone isn't the answer. Many important battles in history have been won by the smaller, weaker army. Coaching isn't the whole thing, the team needs to diagnose what it sees across the way and adjust. Brady did that a lot and that's why we rocked. The OC can do a lot, but he's not the one getting blitzed. I believe in Matt, but he needs to jam his cleets up a few of his team-mates as$es and take the reigns come-what-may. I'm done. Honest. **Yes, the dropped pass is on Randy. I have no doubt.
