Caveat Emptor

“I look at Cassel and I think Scott Mitchell,” an unnamed NFC executive told the (Boston) Herald. “That’s who I see.”

My feelings exactly. Anyone thinking that Bill Belichick would do anyone any favors is deluding themselves. To borrow a phrase from the movie Wall Street, he would sell his own mother and send her COD.

Addicts, you keep drinking the Kool-Aid. However, ask yourselves two questions. What QB has come off the bench, had a good year then moved to another team and became a top QB? Scott Mitchell? Matt Schaub? Billy Volek? What QB has moved away from throwing to Randy Moss and done as well elsewhere? Daunte Culpepper?

When I got news of this trade, I was sick to my stomach. Vrabel? fine, we needed veteran leadership on D (and we still need more). Cassel? I am not impressed. Before this is raised in the comments, I am not buying the rumor that Belichick turned down a first-round pick from Tampa Bay. Belichick is ruthless and football is war to him. If a deal looks too good to be true, you better start counting your fingers and toes.
