    Its pathetic that the Pats havent allready realized that Cassel is horrible and not the answer.

    so we can have a rookie possibly the future of the team go out get beat up and made to look worse. Any time a team get pressure in 2-3 seconds we can't do much our receivers can't get deep in that time

    Please stop. Cassel is not an NFL qb. He cant make the correct reads, and looks like a deer in headlights for the vast majority of the game. We have nothing to lose starting O'connell. He can't be any worse than what we have now.

    Maybe O'Connell has at least an ounce of pocket presence and feel to avoid the rush rather than taking his eyes off his receivers and panicking...

    I am 100% in favor of this move.

    Im sorry i believeD in giving him time but his unawareness is awful. This needs to end and i for one agree with a switch.

    why wait till next week. I think I'd start him in the 2nd half.


    the offense needs a spark.

    Unless he starts to throw stupid int's I don't think we need to change him. and doubt we will.

    Cassel is not setting his feet properly. That's the only qualm I'm starting to have with him as I watch him more. He's got a cannon arm and can throw a laser when he wants to but you can tell he's getting nervous in the pocket which can also be attributed to the offensive line. However, Cassel just missed a wide open Ben Watson in the end zone. Brady would have hit that.

    And let's also not forget that the defense is playing horribly right now. Is Deltha O'Neal still in the game? Maybe we should change his name to Toast.

    The problem is we including myself are all spoiled. 16-0 last yr. The defense maybe was this bad last yr. Thomas, Bruschi, Vrabel all look old and tired out there. It's time to add speed to the LB and Secondary.

    Cassel is getting better every game and will eventually lead them deep into the playoffs, if not the SB, if not outright winning the SB.

    He will most likely be franchised and traded for 2 #1s. BB doesn't make mistakes and in BB we trust, remember?

    You need to get with he program.:disagreement:

    That doesnt really matter, Cassel is incapable of throwing the long ball.

    Ok. I have never ONCE said to sit Cassell but down 27-3 what is the harm in giving O'Connel 4th quarter reps? I dont get it maybe the kid shows something. Cassell really is suffering in there anyone can see that. With all the weapons he has at his disposal to put up a mere 3 points will never cut it. This is disgraceful no one is standing out as having a good game. I want to see some different guys getting some looks. This games extremely hard to watch.
