    going on about what to do about Matt Capps. Should they caught Matt Cassel or keep him. And I think the crux of the discussion is whether or not Matt Cassel there's the second string quarterback or the third string quarterback now meet personally. I would keep off three guys. If the bills
    last two games. How well he played I would feel uneasy. Flooding Matt Cassel and keeping EJ Manuel as the sole other quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on my roster. Even though castle 64 million dollars and
    we can talk about him missing some games here there. I want Matt Cassel will be able to just step right in and manage the offense and not wonder which EJ Manuel gonna show up the

    league and if you're gonna just keep one of them. Each air Matt Cassel . At this point. For now in the in the immediate future it's smarter to keep EJ in my opinion. Now that doesn't mean you shouldn't keep Matt Cassel it I don't understand it you wanna keep on. My point is if you only wanna keep one yeah I mean the
    guy who might still have some upside what are get out of Matt Cassel long term nothing. So let's just keep the younger guy I just think that's a bad idea I don't wanna keep Cassel

    to about Matt Simms and I guess Rios another mat may now Matt Cassel sale. You have just reported that there is internal debate on whether the bills will keep Matt Cassel or cut him. What do you think well I think it this is about EJ Manuel and his progression in the army
    league and if you're gonna just keep one of them. Each air Matt Cassel . At this point. For now in the end the immediate future it's smarter to keep EJ in my opinion. Now that doesn't mean you shouldn't keep Matt Cassel and I understand it you wanna keep on. My point is if you only wanna keep one yeah to me the choice is Manny. I would keep too I height but. If you force me I I guess. Voice I think to be a mistake and I think it really be a mistake cutting Matt Cassel but but at and but if you I am assuming. The thought process of keeping only EG if it has to be just one of the tip the thought process of keeping EJ the bills are having these discussions would be. Well EJ is we liked the way for the last two games you still the younger guy who might still have some upside would get out of Matt Cassel long term nothing. So let's just keep the younger guy I just think that's a bad idea I don't wanna keep Cassel
    shoulders of BJ Emanuel completely. Which is why like the safety net Matt Cassel hit sitting around here and that would be the guy I would go to an event Taylor either gets hurt or struggles which is why. I would not want to cut Matt Cassel . I understand but I think eight. You're kind of discounting what he gave you that showed you with a pre season because
