    1) Denial- "Tom Brady's return is questionable"

    2) Anger- "That hit was dirty"

    3) Bargaining- "Who knows Cassel could carry us, Tom did it when Drew went down"

    4) Depression- When Matt Cassel completey shyts the bed

    5) Acceptance- Some time in early January

    2) Anger- "That hit was dirty"

    3) Bargaining- "Who knows, O'Connell could carry us, he looked the best of the 3 QBs in preseason, he's mobile and had the smarts to check off and throw that TD to Chad Jackson, let's give the kid a shot, he's clearly the better QB"

    4) Depression- BB afraid to develop Kevin O'Connell, DRC wears Cardinal red instead of Patriot blue ;)

    5) Acceptance- BB sticks with Matt Cassel, Matt pee-pees his pants in NY this weekend and Pats grab a top 10 pick in 2009

    Matt Cassel has 4 games to show me what he could do as a starter, if he goes 2-2 and 3-1 as a game manager Im happy, that is the best you could do..

    Depression-when the rest of the NFL realizes the Patriots are still a wicked good football team

    Acceptance-Belichick is the greatest coach of all time

    Denial: The "genius" Belichick over in NE has lost it, not being ready with a vet QB, what a douche.

    Anger: That lucky, no-talent bench warmer Cassell just beat us.

    Bargaining: But Cassell and the Pats will never make the playoffs, right?

    Depression: The Pats just won the SuperBowl

    Acceptance: Hey, the off-season power rankings have us at no. 3, not bad.

    4) Depression- Whaaaaa...why won't that dunderhead Belichick listen to this fanbase and get us a real QB like Culpepper, Bledsoe, Simms, Rattay, Harrington, someone whose name we recognize...

    5) Acceptance- Because Belichick's a freakin' football genius... :D

    My 5 stages of grief went by fast. Once it was clear Brady was done for the year, I started to look forward, It is a situation that we cannot do anything about. It really sucks, but as we heard many times before "It is what it is"

    1) Denial- "He walked off the field so it can't be bad, don't worry."

    2) Anger- "Pollard you dirty goon! That's it I'm driving to Foxboro and taking you out!"

    3) Bargaining- "Maybe it was just an MCL sprain. 4-6 weeks? Even if it's ACL, he COULD rehab and be back by playoffs right? Just as long as he doesn't go on IR we are good."

    4) Depression- "nooooooooo. Why why why why why. Last year and now this? :( BRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYYYYY"

    5) Acceptance- "OK well that's ****ty but BB is still BB and Cassel is in his 4th year. He's here for a reason and we still have a great team, 2-53+. 12 wins is definitely plausible and after all that experience under Cassel's belt we can fight for that Lombardi!"

    Belichick will adjust just like he did with Brady when Bledsoe went down. We have Randy Moss, Welker, Maroney, Morris, for cripes sakes. Heck, I could even throw a football to Randy Moss. We will be fine. We do have a pretty cheezy schedule. (Thank the football gods!!!) We need to have faith in the coaching staff. No team makes great "adjustments" like the Pats. They will do what needs to be done.

    (I'm still in denial, I think.. LOL)

    I must be in denial also because I agree 100%. I trust BB will have our guys ready to go. What better team to face now than the Jets?:rocker:
