Angela tried being patient, but Matt Cassel just isn't getting any better:

... He looks just as confused as Week One. Shots of him behind center look like a deer in headlights. His passes are off target, sometimes by miles and he second-guesses almost every throw that isn’t a screen. ...

... It was the closet thing I've seen in professional athletics to a little child trying to find the happy place where things hadn’t reached the point of worst case coming true.
