I remember hearing Cassel say that he had no issues playing behnd Brady. Obviously, Brady is who he is. Though that still bothered me as I want to hear someone say that they want to start and be the "man". Looking deeper at his history, this is the way he's been bred his entire career. He went to College knowing that he was going to be a backup. He seemed ok with it. Why would you sign at a College, knowing that you wouldn't be the starter, and be able to show what you've got? Wouldn't he want to be drafted? Or was he just complacent?
“Eight years of just sitting there and waiting,” said Cassel, 26. “Everybody is always telling you, ‘You have to be ready; you are one ankle sprain away.’ I was sitting there going, ‘Gosh, nobody sprains their ankle anymore.’ ”
I just hope that his competitve edge is what it needs to be. Being a lifelong backup, does he have what it takes to finally get his chance, and make the most of it?
