  1. […] that the energy completely left the house for the balance of three quarters. There are rumors that it’s an ACL tear which would mean that us football fans can hibernate for another 12 months and would be devastating […]

  2. If this is true, here’s an intriguing thought: Duante Culpepper, Moss’ most prolific QB just retired. Anyone think the Pats look his way?? He said he didn’t want to take over due to catastrophic injury, but a chance to reunite with Moss and win a title? The Pats would have to make sure he’s healthy and DC “the agent” would not have to stand in DC “the player’s” way. If he stayed healthy, it could turn into a long term deal (elsewhere of course) for him… There are certainly other issues, like his turnover propensity, but he’s a different QB now, less running, etc. I’m of the opinion that Cassel hasn’t proven to me that he’s that great of a QB.

  3. Not a bad try. I’m not so sure though that Daunte Culpepper can even play anymore.

    Belichick has a system that maps out exactly what an ideal QB is like. Brady fits it perfectly. I have a feeling that he may think Cassell fits it better than Daunte or he would’ve signed him…

  5. Word is MRI is scheduled for tomorrow. There’s no way to say for sure the ACL is torn until those results come back…but signs don’t seem to be pointing towards anything positive at this point.

  8. I think they are still a playoff team, but I dont think they will be a contender or do as good as they were expected to do this season. There is still plenty of talent. Matt Cassel just needs to step up. The Steelers looked good though.

  10. I think that brady could be ok but it didnt look good at all. If they bring in another QB they have Daunte or Chris Simms. Simms is a good quality quarterback and Daunte could reunite with moss. We could win 10 games maybe. Still indisbelief about the injury tho!

  11. Brady came in to play after Bledsoe was injuried. People were saying the same thing about him then as they are now about Cassel. Who says that Cassel can’t pull a winning season off? I’m not saying it’s likely, Tom Brady is a one of a kind QB who is irreplaceble no matter who is stepping up to the plate. I’m only saying that we, the fans, can’t be completely dismayed because of something like this. We are a superior and outstanding team in all respects, not simply our quarterbacking skills. We’ve got great receivers, excellent backs, and a good line. I know I personally survived the hell and disappointment of last year’s superbowl defeat, and I refuse to think that our season is over only 11 minutes into it.

  12. Liz, I agree. After losing the Super Bowl, are we really going to just hand the AFC East to the Jets? Cassell proved capable of winning a game (aka Sunday against the Chiefs) but how will he do against winning teams? And is Chris Simms really the answer? Simms needs to know the system better before he could ever take over.

  15. The patriots are THE BEST TEAM in the league, not just because of Tom Brady. They have the heart to win every single game that they play, and if it is not in God’s plan for them to go to the superbowl, then so be it. It is not because Tom Brady is out. Tom Brady WAS a great asset, but they can still go to the superbowl, and they WILL. Go New England Patriots!

  17. With Brady gone the pats still seemed to do well this past sunday. The new guy may not be able to lead the team to be 18-1 again but he still had some qualities of Brady which is good for us pat fans.

  18. […] A few SoB writers voted for the dramatic end to Spygate, and some voted for the Manny Ramirez saga and his subsequent trade to the L.A. Dodgers. But, the story that definitely had people talking in 2008, and will probably have them talking in 2009 as well, was the catastrophic occurance that took place Sept. 7, 2008: Tom Brady’s Torn ACL.
