RE: [patriotzip] The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (Miami)
I agree that there has been a noticeable change in game planning. The game plan was very conservative earlier in the season but it seems that with Cassel’s improved play that they have finally given him the vote of confidence and have really opened it up.

***** Totally correct comment regarding Cassel 's improvement in throwing accurately on the run. He couldn't get within 10 yards of a receiver in that situation a couple of months ago. He really hit a couple of good ones in the Miami game.
***** The improvement in this guy is absolutely amazing. It seems to me that it really has come like flipping a switch. The last two games have been night and day, compared to what came before. However, I do think that there's been a noticeable change in McDaniel's game planning that has aided that; particularly in this game. Overall, Cassel 's accuracy in this game was fantastic. He was on the numbers, and leading receivers, with most of his throws, including the long ones that I, and others, have been critical of in the past. I haven't seen him that accurate in any previous game.
***** I hope they continue to play the more wide open game that we saw against Miami ; but throw in a little more running, if Morris is physically up to it. Whatever they do, it must include continuing to throw the ball to Moss frequently. He should get at least 10 targets in every game, regardless of coverage. Even if the ball is thrown away in his direction, keep the defense focused on him.
