In the post I was replying to, the poster mentioned that instead of going after Hoyer, he figured the Patriots would be more interested in bringing Cassel back.
I'm thinking like you... instead of paying either guy to stick around, they'll draft a cheap back up. That guy may or may not be the future starting QB for the Patriots. But Hoyer & Cassel definitely are not.
They may not have said as much (is that what you mean by not passing judgement), but they've clearly moved on.
