First Brady, now Cassel. Find out what New England's other QB had to say about his future with the Pats.

What a week for Patriots QBs.

A day after Tom Bradyspoke for the first time since his injury, his understudy, Matt Cassel, granted a series of television interviews.

"This is Tom's team," he said.

"The Patriots have been Tom's team. He's built that franchise up with his own two hands. He's the guy, and he was the MVP the year before. I realize that. He's been such a mentor for me that I would say, 'No, there is no quarterback competition.' I've learned so many things from Tom and, hopefully, it'll help me in my career."

"If the situation is what it is, then I would accept it and I would continue to do what I have done my entire career which is work hard, put my best foot forward and continue to work on the things that I need to and put out my best effort," Cassel continued.

"I love New England," he continued. "I love the Patriots organization. The Krafts have done some amazing things here, and [coach Bill Belichick] is the person who brought me along and taught me. If I’m back, I would be nothing but smiles."

And on, you'll find Belichick breaking down the Super Bowl XLIII match-up.
