    I’m not ready to start throwing the stud caption to Matt Cassel. Granted he played well but it wasn’t until the end of the season that his numbers really started to show some signs of improvement. And he was the QB for the NE Patriots for Pete’s sake. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that he will be just a middle of the road QB this year.

    I’m not saying he’s a stud, but he has two real nice matchups in Weeks 15 & 16.
