that way when Jimmy got traded, or Jacoby [Brissett] got traded. I have kept in touch with all those guys. When Matt Cassel was gone -- all these guys I've worked with. I feel like I have had such great relationships with all the quarterbacks

Ryan Mallett: 3-5 record, 68.3 passer rating. -- Brian Hoyer: 16-21 record, 83.4 passer rating. -- Matt Cassel : 26-40 record, 76.3 passer rating. I'm not trying to be a party pooper, but the numbers don't lie when it
As a starter after being traded by the Patriots, Matt Cassel compiled a record of 26-40. Cassel threw for 192.0 yards per game for 76 touchdown and 62 intercepts. The Patriots received a second-round pick which they used to draft Patrick Chung.
That's what a bad hammy will do to you. Still much better than the alternative. In weeks 4 and 5 with mostly Matt Cassel under center, Tennessee produced 383 total yards and 24 points in two games combined. On Monday night, with Mariota
Mariota gutted that sucker out. It was so obvious he couldn't move. It was so obvious Mike Mularkey wanted to play Matt Cassel about as bad as he wants to watch "Cruel Intentions" instead of film of his run game. The second guy? Taylor Lewan

nothing I do gets me out of the dumpster. So maybe I need to go grab Cooper. I've loved Rishard Matthews in PPR, but Matt Cassel is killing his value. It's a Monday nighter, so I'd look at other options unless it's absolutely certain Marcus
The Titans offense was a creaky operation in last week's loss to the Dolphins with Matt Cassel under center. Since taking over to finish Week 4, Cassel has completed just 25-of-42 passes for a measly 162 yards, a cringe-worthy 3.9
