If any game were the very definition of the term above, this would be it. Cassel was okay, Maroney was okay, the defense was GREAT, but overall the game had a somewhat ugly feel to it, yet we pulled out a 19-10 victory over division rival New York Jets.
4:15pm. Patriots Vs. Jets. Matt Cassel’s first start since 1999 when he started for Chatsworth High School. He’s played sporadically in the pre-season and in the regular season (when the game was already out of reach) but this is his first NFL start.
I have no idea how he’ll do, especially against a tough division rival like the Jets, but part of me is excited to see what happens this afternoon. The other part of me is terrified.
