    Have to be honest, I was a little unsure about Cassel at forst from from what I have been reading and the more I hear about him I would love to see him on this team, and think he would be by far the best of the bunch out there from the know FA QB's out there.

    thats like being the shinyest turd in the bowl.
    I don't like Cassel here, because in NE, with 2 pro bowl recievers, and a great line, he just had an alright season.
    Nothing that turned heads.
    If Cassell were a regular starter, and not a backup, nobody would think twice about it.
    I have a hard time believing that he'll be able to duplicate the success he had in NE here, because our recievers aren't as good, and our line definetally isn't as good.
    he'd be an upgrade probably, but he's not the missing link to our team.

    Though I'd like to see Cassel here, to be honest, he's my favorite option of all other quaterbacks, it's a risky call, and like i_bleed_purple said, he had to great receivers and a fantastic offensive line.
    If we were to upgrade our line in FA though, like at RT, maybe sign another guy to play #2 receiver, Cassel could play pretty well here, especially with the support of a strong running game- stronger than the one he has in NE.


    I like Cassel more than any of the other options, mainly because he's a young guy, I'm not one for signing anyone past their prime.
    To be honest, I don't really have something outstanding to point out about him, a lot of it's gut feeling, but that doesn't mean crap.
    :P

    Yeah, it's scary to think he lead the league in sacks with that offensive line and passing game. He'd literally be looking at 60+ sacks here.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    Re: How Tom Brady Can Make the Vikings Season One to Remember

    I agree with Garland here, Matt Cassell is about as comfortable as I get with any of the FA's on the market. The biggest problem is Matt Cassell is a very good QB, so the Patriots are definitly not going to allow him to hit the market free and clear. There smarter than to allow him to get away with nothing in hand, if someone wants to trade for him they will consider it but I think all likelyhood is he remains a Patriot for at least this next season.

    There is alot of talk about Cassell only being good because of the players around him, the system and the coaching. I can agree with this to an extent, but watch the film, see what the kid does and give him his due. There is a reason that Cassell went to USC, there is a reason he was drafted by the best coach and franchise in the league. Cassell is a good QB, a starting level QB in this league.

    The biggest problem I have with this guys article is when he says we have a good oline. We have an overated Oline who do well in the run game but do not exell in pass protection. I think this is going to be heavily adressed throughout the offseason in order to give whoever our QB is a better chance to make plays and stay healthy.

    If the Vikings were to bring in Cassell he's likely the most capable of really competing with Tarvaris, other than him the options drop drasticly. A trade is the best bet to move foward with someone other than TJack but like the Patriots, other teams will not part with starting caliber QB's without solid compensation and many like the Seahawks and Rams are more likely to keep there players. I still doubt wether we are able to get a QB in here to really push Tarvaris for the starting position.

    The Patriots Oline didn't perform nearly as well as they did the year before, after the Giants destroyed them in the SB teams had there number for awhile. They wern't always great but I think they got better as the season rolled along, as well as Matt Cassell getting comfortable in the system.

    Italian you have my vote for best post of the year!

    I would love to see Tom Brady on the Vikings
    -
    Maybe Belichick will think that he can do it with Cassell and prove that it wasn't just because of Brady that they won 3 Superbowls
    (big ego)

    The Pat's would save millions and get a pooh pile full of picks (which is what they would get).


    What would it take to get Brady away from the Pat's?


    1st, 2nd and 3rd this year

    1st and 3rd next year

    ?

    We have the cap room!


    I would do it, even at that many draft picks!


    Would you do the trade if it took Brady another year to get back to his previous level.?

    Me:

    Yes!
    ;D


    If he wasn't 100% this year he would still be the best Viking QB we have seen in many a year!


    Would it be Hershell Walker trade II ?


    Italian I know you were joking, but I am not!


    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
