The from the TV angle we got, it never looked like a violent hit at all, and that the majority of the impact was his ass and then backwards.
I admit, I thought it was an easy way to remove himself from the game like last years mysterious hand injury which bought himself more time with the ole fashion injury excuse. I predicted it would happen before the game and I was anxious to see that I was right.
If I was wrong and Cassel had a real concussion (which I've had before) then I am sorry I accused him of flopping. I knew the pressure on him was huge yesterday, and with one of the worst games of his career, I don't know how he didn't even pull himself out of that disaster. I do commend Cassel for being a tough prick. Honestly, he has stolen a lot of time and money from this fan base, and I don't feel sorry for him. A Broken neck would be a different story that deserves sympathy.
