Blocking Matt Cassel from my Memory

So Matt Cassel is going to make some cash this offseason? Good for him. I'll buy the ticket to Detroit if it gets him out of town. The Patriots going with Matt Cassel makes as much sense as the Jets bringing in Brett Favre (not that I am comparing a future hall-of-famer who had four seasons as the best QB in football to Matty Ballgame): it is short-sighted.

Cassel will not be in New England next year. Kevin O'Connell will be the number two QB behind Tom Brady. This season is half in the crapper anyway, so why continue wasting time with Cassel?

unfortunately that's the way with second teams. you gotta focus on your primary team but when a completely random and unexpected injury occurs it puts owners and coaches in tight positions.

Last I heard Brady was expected to be back next season so Cassel leaving at the end of this season wouldn't really make a difference. I guess pats fans are just going to have to accept a .500 season...
