FOXBOROUGH - He's not Tom Brady, and no one is asking him to be Tom Brady.
He's Matt Cassel, and he shares one goal with his coach and his Patriots teammates. All he wants, and all they are asking, is for him to make continual improvement, to be the best 2008 NFL quarterback he can be.
They're not playing for the future. They are all about the present, and this season. Nothing else matters to them. Everyone wants to keep getting better; it's as simple as that.
