I can admit when I’m wrong

Matt CasselDear Matt Cassel,

I’m writing to say I am wholeheartedly sorry. A few weeks ago I whined about how badly I wanted you benched. In fact, in August I thought there was no way you’d even make the final roster. After consistent improvement over the last few weeks, I know I was wrong. Really wrong.

It’s funny because one of my mantras is “In Bill We Trust.” Call me a “homer” but I’d just about trust my life with Bill Belichick. EXCEPT, I thought he was wrong in keeping you. I know, I’m an idiot.

And I’m happy for you, not just because you’re playing for my team, but because 31 other teams are watching your rise. Quite a few of those teams are going to be needing the services of a quarterback (some more desperately than others) next season and I’m fairly certain they will pay a good chunk of change to find someone capable of leading their teams.

In my defense, it did take a few games for you to shake off the rust. And part of my resentment toward you was actually my sorrow at Tom’s season-ending injury.

Although it’s still early, I think your 400 yards passing, 62 yards rushing and three TDs should secure your second “AFC Offensive Player of the Week” award. Thank you.

Very Truly Yours,

P.S. I hope Tom didn’t re-injure himself last night jumping up and down after your TD pass to Randy with one second left on the clock. Then, I’ll be pissed. 😀

  1. If anything, I’d say it was the defense that kept them in the game. Special teams imploded for much of the night. Even Gostkowski wasn’t kicking his usual kickoffs into the end zone. That would’ve stopped a lot of Leon Washington’s run-backs.
