Figures, when the Patriots are having a huge free agency period I would have a poetry analysis essay due. How am I ever going to concentrate on modernist poetry (of all things) when the Patriots have finally pulled the trigger on one of the most asked questions of this offseason?! And by that I mean, Matt Cassel has been traded to the Kansas City Chiefs!

Of course with Bill Belichick on one end and Scott Pioli on the other, ZERO information is out about the details of this trade. It’s obvious now that Mike Vrabel was part of the equation.

I also have to note the irony that Kansas City is getting the quarterback who, if it weren’t for one of their defensive players knocking out Brady, would have remained in obscurity.

To all Kansas City fans, you guys have just gotten a GREAT linebacker, one who will lead your youth. He will be the on-field defensive equivalent of Tony Gonzalez. You also just got a quarterback who, while under IMMENSE scrutiny (it’s not like he was replacing just any Joe Schmo), succeeded and will only get better. Now, if you could just handle your dirtbag running back issue, you’d be all set.
