This is starting to look disturbingly like the year when I led the league in points scored and somehow managed to remain in last place until the last week of the season. Although it is encouraging that Matt Cassel is starting this week against the Steelers; at halftime of the first game, I predicted that Christian Ponder would lose his starting job after the bye week.

Cassel doesn’t have to win any games with his arm, he just has to be competent enough to avoid turnovers, prevent defenses from putting eight and nine in the box and give AD a little room with which to unleash the purple greatness. And based on his performance in New England and Kansas City, he should be capable of doing that.

I still don’t understand why the Vikings didn’t go after Alex Smith last year. Of course, I’m still annoyed that they didn’t make any attempt to go after Drew Brees when he was available either.
