Patriots Postseason Grades: Quarterbacks

Over the next two weeks we’ll be looking at the Patriots positional groupings and assigning grades based on expectations and performance during the 2008 season. We’ll start with the signal-callers.

Quarterbacks Group Grade: A-

Matt Cassel: A
The 7th-round afterthought made some serious cash during the 2008 season. Showing great speed and elusiveness along with an arm that improved each week probably will earn him about $14 million dollars — the price of a Patriots franchise tag.

Kevin O’Connel: C
Handed the ball of really well, but didn’t get the playing time and pass attempts to give him anything but an average grade.

Matt Guttierez: C-
Expected to be the backup QB by quite a few fans and pundits, Guttierez disappointed by spending the majority of the year inactive as the 3rd quarterback.

Tom Brady: Incomplete

We hope the Golden Boy will be back at 100% for the start of the 2009 NFL season, as Matt Cassel probably won’t be around.
