Cassel in the sand

Tom Brady is now out for the rest of the season. Some find this good news, as there seems to be a hate on for the Pats after last year's undefeated regular season and "spygate". Being a Pats fan, I am obviously disappointed. I wonder what the rest of the season will bring.

It wasn't that long ago that Brady was a young rookie, and the fact that he won a Super Bowl, with some help from Drew Bledsoe, was a major accomplishment. Winning that first Super Bowl launched his career into high gear. Matt Cassel may not look like Brady on the field, but I think he deserves a chance. Everyone has to start somewhere, and this is now Cassel's chance. He played better in game 1 than he did in the preseason, perhaps one of those instances where being in the real situation rather than a practice ups your game.

Good luck, Matt. Bring your A game. No one expects you to be Brady, or have an undefeated season, but get us some wins and we'll support you.
