    the result of this season is a no lose situation! Whatever happens we come out with a positive result!

    Nobody expects us to win the SB this year without Brady. So if we dont win its not a failure like last season! Now if BB wakes the heck up and starts OConnell i believe we have a good chance at winning the division and making the playoffs. Which will be exciting for the fans, that is a positive season without Brady, and watching the playoffs win or lose is always exciting, which is what everyone wants.

    If we stick with Cassel we will bomb this season, but guess what that means HIGH DRAFT PICK! That means another stud like Mayo added to the team, imagine Maualuga/Jenkins/a OT etc. With a high 1st round pick, 2 2nd round picks, 2 3rd round picks, Brady coming back next season = gauranteed SB win in 09!

    Worse case scenario is we go 9-7 and just miss the playoffs and get like the 18th, 19th pick in the draft. But i dont see that happening, so no matter what we cant lose this season.

    We need to re-sign Chad Jackson before someone scoops him up. This will help out immediately.

    BriZ, what have you see from KO that makes you think he will immediately help the line block better than Cassel would?

    the line dont respect Cassel. Look how they block for Brady they would die for him, sure they have their hiccups like the giants in the SB but overall they are going to block and play harder with Brady leading them. OConnell isnt Brady either but hes better than Cassel, they will block better for him and play harder. Plus OConnell can buy time by scrambling around that will help the oline out.

    Cassel can scramble too and had to at too many times last night. Brady masked the problems with the O-Line up until the Giants game last year. Cassel is not Brady and has to hold onto the football a bit longer to go through his reads. That O-Line couldn't hold what was a terrible Chargers pass rush (before this game anyway) for more than two seconds. Now if you think Cassel, who has been here for more than a couple of months, holds onto the football for too long then you're going to be disgusted when you see the rookie O'Connell. But hey, I guess we should only place the blame on Cassel and completely destroy any development that O'Connell would have had going. :rolleyes:

    By the way, you may want to make your argument a little more airtight before you start throwing out suggestions like that after every loss. There is plenty of blame to go around for this team. If they put O'Connell in you will see that.

    I like the cut of your jib, Mr. BriZ.

    Way to put a positive spin on things to cheer people around here up! I think they (we) could use it!

    Things are never as bad as they seem
    but thinking it makes it so.

    Or something like that.

    The mind can make a heaven of hell
    Or a hell of heaven.

    I do believe Mr. Abraham Lincoln said that last one.

    Anyway, yes, they could get a good draft pick, as painful as that would be to see (the losses I mean).

    They really need an OL, some DL who can rush the passer instead of just sit around. Maybe an OLB who can do the same (Crable?)...and of course a healthy Brady.

    Cassel doesnt scramble like OConnell, Cassel will scramble up field after he cant find his one or two WRs open that hes looking at. That is not the same as buying time in the pocket by having awareness where the rushers are coming from, OConnell can see the rushers and scramble away, and he can tuck it down and run it up field when WRs are covered. Cassel cannot buy time in the pocket he scrambles right into sacks!

    I dont think the oline is really bad, Yates stinks but we should be getting Neal back soon, a better RT would be nice. They could block fine for a competent QB its just someone like Cassel makes them look terrible. They really arent, they are solid not great, we dont need Brady back there to make them look good we just need to get rid of Cassel.

    Again, how do you know KO will do all of this instead of doing what most rookies usually do and scambling, locking on to one or two WRs, get flustered, then throw the pick? Have you dug into BB's vault and see footage of the guy that I haven't. The urgency in which you want KO inserted in would have one thinking that he's more like Brett Favre than Ryan Leaf.

    Let's put it this way. Can Kevin O'Connell be any worse than Matt Cassel? It's really that simple. IMO, not a chance, it's all upside.

    Cassel is making the OLine look worse than it is simply because of his complete lack of pocket presence. KO could accidentally slide to his left or right simply by burping and he would have bought himself and the line more time than Matt.

    Like Briz says, and BRiZ knows his football, we win either way.

    Again, I disagree. From what I've been seeing, and I know my football as well, KO's development will get ruined behind that offensive line. If the season goes on like this and BB decides to insert him, I hope you're right. However, I have seen too many rookie QBs with a ton of promise thrown into the fire behind shaky (at best) offensive lines and had their development thrown to the wolves.

    How do you figure we have 2 3rd round picks?

    Sure. Joey Harrington came out of the first round with a lot of promise then was thrown to the wolves immediately and quickly became a bust. He developed bad habits that still carry over to this day. Ryan Leaf is another example of a QB drafted with good promise that started behind a shaky offensive line and quickly turned into a bust. David Carr is another QB who, prior to coming to the NFL, showed great promise with the ability to spread the ball around yet started behind a bad O-Line and developed the same bad habits. Kyle Boller comes to mind as well. These are all current or not so old examples. I can come up with plenty more older ones if you want.

    Now I know you're going to turn around and say "well those guys are busts". Indeed they were. But whose to say they wouldn't have been complete busts if they had time to develop? Of course you can turn around and point to the Ben Roethlisbergers and Carson Palmers of the world as well. The bottom line is it's a 50/50 shot of whether or not KO will come in when he's ready and light the world up. Why take any chance whatsoever on hindering that now when we're 3-2 and there is blame to spread around to other positions that are much more deserving of it than the QB?

    I am blaming other people. And I've posted as much.

    James Sanders has no right starting over Brandon Meriweather, none, yet he still starts and contributes nothing to this defense except doing his best to make sure everything stays in front of him. Meriweather makes plays, always around the football, he is so much better than James Sanders, yet BB and his stubborn ways will stick with Sanders.......

    Richard Seymour, what more can I say. Told all of us how great he was going to be this year now that he's finally healthy with a full healthy off-season and camp under his belt. BS. TIME TO STEP UP RICHARD. I watched every one of his snaps against SF (3 times on my DVR). He was brutally invisible. To think of the money that this guy has banked.

    Mike Vrabel, talk about invisible, again, on the back nine, let's get Crabel some snaps.

    Jabar Gaffney? People are talking about Moss shutting it down ? How about Jabar, his binkie is gone. The guy that made him, superman is gone and now he's no longer the same player, he's been "non-existent"

    I don't hold Cassel at total fault, there's plenty to share, but he takes a good piece of the pie.
