Draft Scout Matt Cassel News
12/09/15 - QB Matt Cassel broke through against the Redskins on Monday night. He finally won a game as a starter for the Cowboys after losing his previous four attempts, stopping an 0-7 streak for Dallas quarterbacks not named Tony Romo this season. It was the first win for a Cowboys quarterback other than Romo since the 2010 season final by Stephen McGee.
"Absolutely," Cassel said when asked if he was relieved. "I mean, when you go out there and you haven't won a game yet and you finally get one, of course there's a sense of relief."
12/07/15 - QB Matt Cassel struggled for much of the night, but he completed several key passes in the final quarter, including a pair to wide receiver Dez Bryant on the final drive. "He deserves it, and he comes in working every day. ... He brings the energy," S J.J. Wilcox said. "He's knows what he's doing. He's a veteran, he's got the leadership, and he's just awesome."
Cassel finished 16-for-29 for 222 yards.
11/15/15 - QB Matt Cassel threw for 186 yards Sunday against Tampa Bay in what may have been his last start this season as Tony Romo is expected to return from injury next week. Cassel's passer rating was a 66.8. "We knew they were going to be a salty defense, but at the same time we had some opportunities we didn't take advantage of,'' he said.
11/10/15 - QB Matt Cassel went 25 of 38 for 299 yards with three touchdowns, an interception and a 105 passer rating against the Eagles. It was his best outing in three starts in Dallas. However, it did not result in a win.
The Cowboys have not won with a quarterback other than Romo since the meaningless season finale in 2010 against Philadelphia with Stephen McGee at the helm. They are 6-15 without Romo since he became the starter in 2006.
Brandon Weeden was 0-3 in three starts this season before being benched in favor of Cassel. Cassel fell to 0-3.
11/01/15 - QB Matt Cassel completed 13 of 25 passes for just 97 yards. He didn't have a touchdown or an interception, and he hardly tested the Seahawks down the field. "We had our opportunities," Cassel said. "This game really came down to when we got in the red zone. We've got to score touchdowns and can't settle for field goals."
