Last Sunday, the Red Sox lost game seven of the American League Championship Series. I remember thinking, the worst part is that my sports experience over the next 6 months will be watching Matt Cassel. The Patriots had just gotten destroyed by San Diego ad the injuries were starting to pile up on the team.
How quickly things can change! The next day Matt Cassel and a great defense destroyed the Broncos (Cassel won AFC Offensive Play of the Week in the process). This week Cassel followed it up with a great performance in another win (the stats won’t tell the story, as his receivers caused the interceptions and dropped what should have been touchdown passes).
New England is in for an unusual winter. Whether they win or lose it will be one of the most interesting football seasons in years.
