Honestly, in all due respect, I didn't mind the Patriots when they had Cassel, I actually almost liked them. The only reason I didn't was because I knew next season he'd be gone to another team.
Tom Brady is the sole reason I hate the Patriots.
With that aside, yet again, I think that in my honest unbiased opinion, Cassel would have done just as well as Brady, maybe one or two wins worse. Who knows? I don't think there's enough difference between the two that you can call him elite.
legacyme3 : The fact that you hate Tom Brady makes your opinion just as biased as mine. You may be the only person in the country that thinks they could do just as good with Matt Cassel. Most NFL analysts that make "top 10 QB's of all time" lists have Tom Brady somewhere in the top 5. They know a lot more about it than you or me.
Also, I hate the Eagles just because they have Michael Vick and the Colts just because they have Peyton Manning, so I don't blame you for that :P.
Hey, at least you have faith in your hometown team. I wouldn't want most Packers players, because it feels like they play better as a team than individuals. Guess I was wrong on that end. I underestimated the skill of some players.
Note - I need Vick to have a good game this week. I can take one or two poor starts, but I need a good one this week.
legacyme3 : Well I've got 5 Packer players which are almost gauranteed good points:
Aaron Rodgers = Probably the top 3 best fantasy QBs and the packers always get a lot of points per game
Gregg Jennings = Aaron Rodgers main target, gets a lot of yards and tds
Jordy Nelson = Aaron Rodgers 2nd main target (keep in mind packers are a passing team so these guys get a lot of action)
Mason Crosby = Packers kicker, since packers score a lot of points, he gets to kick a lot of extra points or field goals
Packers Defense = Packers have one of the best in the NFL and they're very well known for getting a lot of interceptions and some of them returned for touch downs
Aaron Rodgers scored me 46 points! I've never seen a player score that many. 4 passing touchdowns, 2 rushing touchdowns and over 400 yards passing. I'm starting to think that he's MVP bound this year and is probably the most valuable fantasy football player at the moment.
