He didn't want to be in the game today, and he found a way out. The same thing happened last year on his mysterious hand injury.
If Cassel would've broken his neck or something, then yes... you DON'T cheer.
This is kinda how I feel. I didn't cheer, but it makes me very, very suspicious when he goes down with a hit that doesn't look particularly vicious.
I'm not generally a conspiracy theorist, but ti could easily be a face-saving move - they can bench him (at least for a game or two) and see what happens with Quinn, all while saying "Matt got hurt."
If Quinn does well, they can say he earned the spot and his right to continue to lead the team. If he tanks, they can go back to Cassel and probably not get as much crap from fans/media.
