    Who's Hot:

    Tully Banta-Cain
    Troy Brown
    Matt Cassel
    Bam Childressl
    Heath Evans
    Stephen Gostkowski
    Dan Klecko
    Laurence Maroney
    Garrett Mills
    Dave Thomas
    Ben Watson
    Pierre Woods

    Who's Not:

    Monty Beisel
    Martin Gramatica
    Chad Jackson
    Patrick Pass

    Brandon Gorin

    That's all I can think of for negatives. Gorin is my favorite whipping boy, and he had some problems. Hochstein did too.

    Beisel, Gramatica, and the rest are on their simply for one reason:

    As we all witnessed tonight, this team is really starting to come together. Unfortunately, and it's not entirely the players' fault, they are left behind.

    I still think Jackson will give us some thrills this season. I just have a good feeling about him.

    So do I. But when the team has a great success like tonight, and players are gelling and getting much more comfortable, Jacksonnot partaking in it isn't going to doom his season, but it's not helping him either.

    Get well soon, Chad.

    I'm sorry Mike, if someone is out with an injury they don't belong on the list, that's cold dude. And Gramatica was sitting for another reason; Gorin shouldn't be at LT period.

    How about Britt on the Not Hot list... comes in to replace O'C, get's beaten and next play O'C is back. When he was back in later, sounded like he had trouble clearing the passing lane as well. (This is all just heresay for me though, somebody correct me if I'm wrong).

    It is cold, but I'm desperate for somebody - anybody - for the "Who's Not" category!

    I would add Warfield to the Who's Not and possibly Andrews.

    O'Callaghan played the whole first half and usually completed his assignments. He should be on the Who's Hot, IMO.

    Beisel should be on the who's hot list.

    He didn't put a foot wrong today...

    They just asked BB what he thought of Leinart. You know he doesn't like to comment on other teams players, but his answer had a neat little edge: "I like the QB we got from USC". He is almost waxing poetic about Matt (by BB standards).

    NOT:

    NFL Network announcing team. I'm usually pretty tolerant of announcers, but that was painful. The 432 repetitions of "decisive" were bad enough, but the knockout punch came after a nice play by Troy Brown:

    "You can't teach that! That's learned behavior!"

    On Patriots 5th Quarter and Belichick's press conference, he actually had unequivocal positive things to say about Cassel. He flagged him as having a really good week of practice and noted that that usually carries over into the game. When asked to name a player who really showed up well, he didn't hesitate in saying that was Cassel.

    We have obviously not been able to really judge whether good performances from Cassel starting with the Miami game are all that indicative or judge whether his problems are symptoms of shortcomings.

    But this game I think does set a benchmark that we can actually say this guy looks pretty good and may be a really solid backup for Brady. It is, of course, still very much a preseason environment, but he looked like there is a good chance that he has IT. Pretty good feeling.

    Thomas and Mills did their blocks really well on the Evans TD run.

    You have GOT to be making that up. I don't think even Madden would say something that dumb.

    Didn't Hobbs get burned badly a couple of times? I know he did at least once, had the holding penalty, and I thought I remembered a wide open drop from the receiver he was covering.

    I wouldnt call it badly as the Card's never even scored a touchdown and neither oftheir recievers were amazing.

    No but they did have a few wide open drops, but that's not what I'm saying. I thought the secondary did a good job overall, but if there's one individual I'd pick out of the secondary is not hot, it'd be Hobbs.

    He has so much IT that if you squint just enough to blur the numbers he is looking freakishly like Tom. Footwork and mannerisms in the pocket. He's shadowing the guy he's expected to backup, and that is a best possible scenario for us (and long term for him). I think that was what Sharpe meant when he rather awkwardly said he wasn't competing for a job with Tom. Most non-starting QB's are trying to distingush and seperate themselves and perhaps appear as a viable alternative. Matt is just trying to be the best posisble Brady backup he can be.

    Sure, but how much exposure has he had to first team speed? One play isn't a good measure, how did he do when he went back in?

    Who's Not ? Mr. Branch. Hardly missed you out there buddy.

    Cassel is gold, not only is he a good QB, he's gonna do what we hoped Davey would - pay dividends with a nice draft pick down the line.

    I heard a few people bashing Caldwell...I didnt see some of the second drive but did he drop a pass or something. I didnt see anything amazing but I thought he caught most what was thrown at him, or else it wasnt a good pass.

    The number one "Who's Not" has to be Deion Branch.

    Almost three hundred yards to 16 different receivers with 75% completion rate has to weaken Branch's bargaining position.

    I didn't see him drop anything. There was a bomb that Sharpe claimed he stopped running on, but I didn't notice anything on the replay. He looked fine to me. Actually made a pretty nice catch on a low throw from Brady.
