Matt has always been a classy guy. I am certain his father is surely proud of all his children. Our deepest condolences to Matt and his family.

As a Radier Fan and Son...I send my condolences to Matt Cassell and his family. He is a tough minded guy, not only because he was able to handle the pressure of filling in for Brady but also because of his ability to show up after losing his father. I am not a fan of the Patriots but I do respect Cassell.

I want to extend my sincere condolences to the entire Cassel Family as well as the Patriots 'family' for the loss of of Matt's dad. I can empathize with how he must have felt all week and especially yesterday while playing. The way he handled this week only shows me what devotion Matt has to the game of football and above all his teammates. He has done his best since Game 1 of this season and that's all anyone could possibly expect or ask for of a person.

Matt has surely been tested this football season and has come through for the team, Mr. Kraft, the coaches, his fellow players and above all his family. I'm positive his dad is looking down very proudly at his son.

Thank you Matt..........you've done great all season under extremely difficult circumstances.
