In response to tcal2-'s comment:
Mallet proved last night he isn’t a legitimate backup and Tebow showed why Ryan wouldn’t even let him get on the field last year.
I hope BB is making phone calls this morning in search of another QB to bring to camp.
Yo TCAL, Yeah, you got a valid point! But then again, you got a valid point NO MATTER WHO FILLS IN FOR TOMMY. See Tom, the guy who scored Gisselle, and has 3-rings already with some MVPs and a lifetime supply of UGGs is not lkely to be replaced by anyone who can match what he brings, TOTAL PACKAGE.
Now, having said that, I really believe that Mallet, given some real NFL action and a chance to build genuine confidence has what it takes to be a solid, if not a very good repalcement for TB. He is better than Cassel IMHO. Poor Mallet has been told his whole career that he's Tommy's back-up. No matter how much he says to himself, "Well that's Tom Brady, I should feel good about this!", he can only think to himself, "I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH". That is reality. As such if he knows the job is his if he performs, then that changes everything. He fits BB's scheme perfectly. Like I think it was Wozz who said it earlier, "Mallet needs to take some sauce off of his fastball once in a while." And as HOTBLITZ mentioned, 'TB is a once in lifetime QB'. Bottom line, given real confidence, Mallet will settle in just fine, if needed to step in, and if Cassel can do as well as he did when TB went down, then I believe tha Mallet certainly can too. AND, the team that Mallet will inherit may very well be the most talented we've had in a very, very long time......I say, enjoy the season, because we are gonna roll!
