I'm sorry to see Tom Brady go down to injury but these despairing fan reactions are absurd. Matt Cassel was highly recruited by the biggest football powers after high school. Matt Cassel is a four year pro groomed by the best there is. Pete Carrol and his pro coaches, in big time Div I college ball at USC. He didn't play, but the training he got in pro formations, was a whole lot better than if he ran the wsihbone or option in college. Matt was then drafted by Belichick and his Superbowl coaches, in the NFL. He was brought in to play at the end of the first Q, against KC. I don't understand why all the fans think the end of the world has arrived. He beat out several QBs over the years including Rohan Davey, Vinnie Testaverde, and Matt Gutierez, J T O'Sullivan, (who started for the 49ers), and Chris Redmond. He was judged as adequate to be his #2 QB, on a SB contender, as judged by a great talent evaluator, Bill Belichick. He only played in two games for any amount of time, as yet. In the Miami game he came back, to tie and tried to win on a two point conversion. Yesterday, he played more than he ever has. He played for only three Quarters, coming in cold, and went: 13/18, 152 yd, 72.2%, 8.4 ypa, 1TD, 5.6% TD, 0 INTs, for a QB rating of 116.0 Those a star QB ratings. What is everybody so concerned about? He is now a trained pro QB, ready after four years of pro grooming, who now knows his Offense. Had he played for 4Q, he would have had over 200 hundred yards passing. Those a winning QB numbers. Once again we will see Bill Belichick pop a rabbit out of his magic top hat, and produce a miracle Star player, out of a end of the draft unheralded selection. Anyone remember some later second day selections or UDFAs who turned out well? Guys like Jarvis Green, LeKevin Smith, Dan Koppens, Mike Wright, Pierre Woods, Asante Samuel, Steven Neal, Russ Hochstein, Joe Andruzzi, David Givens and oh yes, a QB named Tom Brady as just a small listing? Steven Neal never even played football anywhere, except for the Patriots.
