When they later went to Dilfer on set, he wanted everyone to know he got the scoop. He said:
"One player told me, 'Trent, Matt Cassel is our quarterback for the rest of the year.'"Then again, Dilfer was asked about the situation:
"A Patriots teammate told me, 'Trent, Cassel is our guy for the rest of this season.'"Once more, Chris Berman broached the subject, and here was Dilfer's response:
"One Patriots player told me, 'Trent, Matt Cassel is our guy for the rest of the year.'"Okay, Trent, we get it. We know you were the one who was told about it. Are you throwing your name in there just to hammer the point home, or just to make us all hate the name Trent? I know it's your first NFL Sunday at ESPN, but you don't need to insert your name into every story. Thank you.
