    Even with the game far from over, the guy has far exceeded my expectations of what he could do. Sorry Matt for doubting you.

    On a side note congrats to the offense and Josh McDaniels for helping to put the guy in a position to succeed.

    I don't think anyone was wrong with anything they said about him based on his performance in the preseason. We all knew he had potential and it's finally time in his final year to show it.

    I said he wasn't able to even come in and salvage a game if needed. He proved me wrong. I think I should man up and admit I am wrong.

    If everyone who dismissed this guy posts a note, the forums will crash for sure. Let's hope he doesn't need to exceed expectations for too long!

    Re: The Official Matt Cassel Apology Thread

    this thread should of been reserved for when cassel has to play a team that doesn't play like it's still pre season.

    sorry, the way the pats have been running, this game should of been wide open in the air game.

    i hope to whatever that we dont need to see cassel on any kind of regular basis, it's best for all of us in every regard.

    one scoring drive against the chiefs isn't going to prevent a 2-14 season

    Guys, get a grip. The guy isn't that good, better pray Tom Brady just has a little boo-boo. Be lucky he only had THREE dropped picks.

    What is two scoring drives going to get you since Cassel has more than one?

    LOL! The Pats still have a chance to get double digit wins with Cassel at QB. They won't be in contention for the Super Bowl, but the team is good enough to win games as long as Cassel continues to play like this.

    LOL! Yeah, you want the QB to air it out when you are trying to run out the clock.

    Re: The Official Matt Cassel Apology Thread


    This is something I've never understood. Most will agree that BB and co. are the best at what they do, and are very good talent evaluators (and most teams can properly evaluate players they get to see in their system over time). However the same people would accuse Matt Cassel of being completely incompetent, with 0 ability to move the offense at all. Not seeing that is indirectly calling BB and co. stupid by putting such an incompetent worthless QB as the patriots backup.

    This was the first time we saw Cassel with the first stringers in an actual game that was meaningful. He did pretty well, like I'm sure the coaches EXPECTED since he is the BACKUP QB.

    He's not Brady, no one is, but he's as good as any other BACKUP QB in the league.

    As good as any backup QB in the laegue


    You are completely out of your mind.
    Cassell's perform,ance was Trent Dilfer like today.
    Patriots will NOT compete for AFC Champiionship without better QB play

    God I can't even believe I'm a fan of the same team as some of you people. Guy goes out there and does his best and wins the game but you all are still giving him sh!t for it.

    Oh Ok... Name every backup qb that is better than him and would have performed markedly better. List each and every one that is better than him since I'm out of my mind and all.

    Awful post. They trusted him to throw on 3rd down from the goal line. If that's not good enough for you, you've got issues.

    Re: The Official Matt Cassel Apology Thread

    you're exactly right, but it was (and still is) fair to speculate about cassel's ability to lead, or his lack thereof, based on the fact that until today he'd shown exactly nothing on that score--college, nfl, preseason or otherwise. (we can all agree that we fans don't have 1/100 the access or knowledge that BB and the coaching staff has)

    You can only beat who is out there in front of you. Cassel and the Patriots beat them. No turnovers and some good throws made. Looked far more composed today.

    Reasonably pleased with this outcome, however lets's hope the number one player in the NFL isn't injured too seriously and is back sooner rather than later.

    The throw to Welker on his hip to pick up the first late in the final quarter drive was money.

    Cassel only surpassed expectations because everyone expected the worst. He wasn't bad enough to lose the game, but I wouldn't say he played a good game, either. He was good enough to beat the Chiefs. Regardless, a win is a win, so I can't complain. I still think we'll beat the Jets as long as our secondary plays a little better.

    Re: The Official Matt Cassel Apology Thread

    Assuming that Brady will be out for a while, I fully expect Matt Cassel to have his ups and downs this season, as all young QBs do.

    I look forward to reading the screaming and clawing on this board when this occurs. After all, you deserve better than some late-round preseason backup at QB.

    When did 13-18 (72%), 8.4 ypa with a TD, and no picks for a backup pressed into service who wins the game for you become anything other than a good game?

    Type his name in on eBAY, there's a bidding war going on for a autographed card. The seller even had Cassel's game stats as a sub-header. Makes me laugh. I got a auto'd Cassel card this summer off eBAY for $4.

    In the fantasy land (that sadly many posters here live in) that has all other 31 teams have a Brady/Manning as a backup qb on their roster.
