What exactly would be the point of trading for a QB who will turn 32 before next season starts.
Brady is clearly not the same QB he once was. I think the end is coming for him sooner than people think. Especially considering his age. But if Brady plays here two more years after this year Cassel would be be 34 when Brady retires/gets traded. I would rather take my chances in the draft or with Mallet.
Easily still a top 5 QB with no debate. Not sure I agree with you.
seriously. nothing of his play has shown the end near... yeah its looked bad, but thats cuz the offense has so many growing pains. if brady was short arming balls, losing accuracy big time, losing his fire, and becoming slower on reads/decisons or just doesnt have the abilites. but he has them all and they'll grow back with time everyone needs to chill...
he's top 3 QB too not even top 5
Brady may still have the ability to be a top 5 QB, but he is nowhere near that right now this season. You can blame it on the GM, the receiving crew, the OL or Brady himself, but to sit claim that Brady is playing like one of the top 5 QB in the NFL so far this year is living in fantasy land.
I can name five guys playing better than Brady right now, this year without even looking at their stats: P. Manning, Rodgers, Brees, Luck, and Wilson.
Now, on to Cassel. Why would the Patriots want him despite what I just said about how Brady is playing this team would not be any better with him and by the time Brady is retired Cassel will be a 35-year-old never was...
