Is anyone out there watching NFL Network right now? I cannot believe it. I'm watching Around the League right now and they are picking the best and the worst offseason acquisitions. Now I'm not making this up ok? This is not an attempt at humor or I promise you I wouldn't have posted a second post so soon.
What they do is take a turn with each commentator telling us what he feels were the best and worst acquisition this offseason. Then they all go in turn and comment on whether they agree or disagree. Jason La Canfora just picked Matt Cassel as a worst acquisition for the offseason. Man. Mike Lombardi even got in on the action.
I hate that a lot because it's my belief is that Matt Cassel will watch this program at some point. He will hear about it and want to see it for himself. Someone he knows will tell him about it and then he will go check it for himself no doubt. I think this could be bad for his confidence. I wish they had said nothing at all like that. I mean it can't make you feel very good about yourself can it? To hear slurs like that about yourself? Man. That sucks.
He seems like a fighter though so maybe he will take it as a personal challenge and really try to step it up. He's got to have some talent we aren't seeing right? I mean he couldn't have made it this far without some talent right? I just wonder why Belichek traded him?
