    30 for 43 = 415 yds

    3 touchdown passes to Moss

    1 rushing TD for Cassel

    Cassel's second consecutive 400+ yard game

    Every week Cassel makes himself another truckload of money. He's a free agent at the end of this season and I'm sure teams are already starting to line up. I'm glad he got his shot to show the league he's a player. I hope he makes a ton of $$$, he's earned it so far. I wish we could keep them, but, that doesn't seem very likely at all.

    Oh, and as we pounded on the Dolphins, it was nice to see Joey "Big Mouth" Porter lose his cool and get a personal foul & an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. That's about right. When he can't back up his smack he throws a fit. Typical.

    Congrats to your team BG, although I admit that if it were anyone else posting about how well the Pats are doing I'd tell them to eat a dik.

    You're right, and I'll be there. I'm taking my buddy, a Steeler fan born and raised in the Burgh. I may make him walk home if we lose........

    I know that idiot is going to wear his Steeler jersey. Thank god he's a State Police Officer.:yes:

    Agree...but Cassel NEEDS to throw 400+ yards in order to have a chance to win.

    When Brady went down, I thought the Pats would look to their defense to win games. Not so.

    Porter having a melt down is the same as watching Cutler whine & complain to the refs.

    Agree, he is looking better each week but Moss making great catches helps with that. A lot of other WR's would of dropped the one handed catch and possibly the TD at the end.

    Not trying to take anything away from what he is doing but Moss helps a lot. Cassell wil be on other teams radars now. Isnt he signed to a 1 year deal this year?

    Patsy fans were *****ing about him to start the year. They were really *****ing about him after we blew them out on Sunday Night. Shows how fairweather football fans are.

    Fairweather fans are everywhere. In order to enjoy the triumps, you really have to suffer the losses.

    Hang tough. Lots can happen in the next five games.

    The Patriots need more of a running game than Cassel. They guy is having a great season, but he can't do it all.

    The Pat runnning backs are extremely fragile.

    Then there is Jared Mayo...the great rookie OLB who should be in very strong contention for ROY. I don't think the kid has missed a defensive play this year.

    Interesting stat...Cassell has one more 400 yard game than Tom Brady.

    Cassel will be worth a fortune after this season. The Patriots won't pay what he will command in free agency....any thoughts on who might pick him up?

    Not that I necessarily want to continue talk of the Pats here, but I'd think that Detroit, Chicago, TB (Gruden is ALWAYS looking at QBs), Minny, & maybe J'ville or Tenn.

    Mentor & student to meet twice/year? That could be very interesting.

    Yes, and Cassel doesn't appear to intimidate too quickly.

    Anyone heard how Brady is progressing?

    I really hope cassel ends up in Detroit

    I feel so bad for that city and those fans, they deserve to finally have something go their way, plus as a former lions fan (my dad was a lions fan so i grew up cheering for them and the chargers), i want to see them finally win for a change.

    Not to mention i want to see what Calvin Johnson could do with a REAL QB!

    Cassel has some great receivers and very good coaches in N.E.

    I hope he continues to grow and succede where ever he ends up.

    The Patriots just signed "retired" LB Roosevelt Colvin to a one year contract..he hasn't seen cleats since last year...and the 40 year old Junior Seau has been in Boston talking with some Patriots people. Hmmm.....Colvin may be able to contribute, but Junior?
