Draft Scout Matt Cassel News
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."
10/26/15 - QB Matt Cassel tossed three interceptions in the Dallas Cowboys' 27-20 loss to the New York Giants.
They were absolutely the difference in the game, especially the one returned 58 yards for a touchdown by cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
But the Cowboys feel good about Cassel's overall performance. He completed 17 of 27 passes for 227 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions in what has first game since being acquired in a trade with Buffalo on Sept. 22.
10/13/15 - The Dallas Cowboys are turning to Matt Cassel as their quarterback, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.
Brandon Weeden was told that the Cowboys are going to start Cassel against the New York Giants on Oct. 25 after their bye week. Cassell was acquired in late September from the Buffalo Bills in a trade.
The Cowboys (2-3) apparently decided to make the change after their loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Weeden started three games after Tony Romo went down with a broken collarbone and lost all three, completing 64 of 91 passes for 666 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
Against the Patriots, Weeden passed for a season-low 188 yards and completed 26 of 39 passes with one interception.
In Weeden's last 11 starts as an NFL quarterback, his record is 0-11.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said earlier that the team would evaluate the quarterbacks and how to proceed going forward until Romo returns. The broken collarbone will keep Romo out of the lineup until Nov. 22 at the earliest.
Cassel lost a quarterback competition in Buffalo during the preseason with Tyrod Taylor for the starting job.
