Cassel on his critics: 'My best football's ahead of me'

Buffalo Bills quarterback Matt Cassel earned the starting role for the team's first preseason game, another step toward being named the Week 1 starter.

If that happens, Buffalo will be the fourth team the 33-year-old has started for, though Cassel feels he's only scratched the surface when it comes to his skill level and future.

"There's always going to be critics out there," he said via the Associated Press. "And for me as a player, I think my best football's ahead of me.

"It'll be really exciting because I know I worked tremendously hard to get back to this point. And to also have another opportunity to be on the field, it's always a blessing, and I don't take it for granted."
