I initially thought he'd actually leave. 

The more time I have to ponder it, the more I think he's just using the threat of leaving to force New England to give him what he wants: More money and better targets.

As gross as it is, I think he'll be a Patriot next year, they'll be much improved on offense, and will be Super Bowl contenders again. Ugh.

 

 

I keep hearing this but how do you propose they do this.  They are I believe $40 + million under the salary cap.  if they give Brady the $30 million he is looking for that takes up a big chunk.  + they have like 9 or 10 unrestricted FAs.  They may keep Brady but I doubt Bill wants to keep him.  He knows he is shot & he knows he is not worth the money.  Kraft on the other hand, has his head too far up Brady's ass to see clearly.

Ultimately, just don't see him leaving NE as much as I would love to see him out of our division. He will finish his career as a Patriot.

 

Yup

Are you sure Gruden has had enough time with NPeterman?

Gruden moves past QBs than Bills fans, that said I think Vegas is the last destination that be on Brady's list. To me the Chargers have the surrounding cast that he'd like and being in his home state of California doesn't hurt. That said not sure Kraft wants to lose him so he might stay in New England if the moneys equal.

Except him being able to test the market may not go well. I’m sure there is a GM out there that thinks they are a QB away that tosses a 60 or 70 mil 2 year his way.

I think the smartest place to go outside of NE is Indy. Indoors, with Hilton and Mack, one of the best Offensive lines in the NFL, Reich as the HC and a metric poon ton of money to spend on another WR / TE and Defensive players while in a city that eats and breathes football. It has the money, talent, coaches, stadium and location a QB of his age and career stage could want. It also allows Indy to be good while Drafting a QB and giving them a year or two to learn behind arguably the NFL's greatest QB of all time. Makes so much sense and due to the Cap situation, they can pay him as he demands.

While I don't necessarily subscribe any greater significance to the analysis of Colin as compared with the next talking head in line, I did find some of his reasoning/points as to why Brady to Dallas would make sense for all sides interesting--which on a side note, if that unlikely event were to occur, would mean that both of NE's starting QB's since 1993 would've ended their careers as Cowboys, FWIW...

John Elway could possibly make a play for Brady. The Broncos QB position has been a mess for a decade and John could bring in Brady to mentor a few QB's over the next couple years. Peyton Manning was no spring chicken and Elway took a shot on him. Just my 2 cents :)

I don't necessarily disagree with you as to Elway's interest--he's a proven snagger of old QB talent :), but I find the notion of Brady being open to going anywhere and becoming a mentor highly unlikely--much like Favre or Big Ben not giving two hoots about that type of a role even late in their careers would similar mindsets. If rumors are to be believed, Brady had as much a hand in Jimmy G's departure as anyone else (Kraft) at the time.

If he goes anywhere else I guarantee he’s going to look like an average QB. He’s 43 and doesn’t have the time to learn a whole new offensive scheme. But knowing a team like the raiders will be dumb enough to get him they probably will sign him to a ridiculous contract. Gruden is desperate and doesn’t know how to develop a young QB from the ground up. I see his career ending the way of Marino, Kelly and Namath

and Montana, and Favre.   sad ends to great careers...

Stay. I want to TAKE the division from him. 

After all these years, it will be SO glorious.

 

It's too late for that glory.  It'd be like finally beating your old man in an arm wrestling contest when he's 65.

He's not going anywhere, especially if they draft a quarterback and don't sign an experienced free agent.

 

I voted move, but think he probably stays. I’m on the fence. Timing is everything. He would have to sign for cap reasons (as I understand it) before free agency or the draft. He needs weapons and blocking more than money. He’s been leaving millions on the table to leave money for more talent, but they have done very little to help him. 

 

If he has to sign before seeing real commitment to surrounding him with talent, does he trust them (aka Belichick) to do so after so many years of being disappointed?

If Kraft insists on over paying Tom Lady I can see BB taking the high road. You know he didn’t want to let Jimmy G go

Well to be fair Jimmy G is not anything to write home about, 6/7 77 total passing yards lol. He is a game manager

how much does BB wish Kraft hadn't made him dump Jimmy Garoppolo to keep Tommy happy

I don’t know why everyone is on the jimmy G bandwagon, he’s not that good. I honestly put him in the category of the Brad Johnson/Trent Dilfer game managers spot. That team was already stacked with a top 5 Defense a Strong WR Corp group and probably the best offensive line that protected him all year. He is not worth the dough that the 49ers are paying him. I’ve already hear rumors of San Francisco looking to move on from him. Honestly put an elite QB on that team and they would’ve won the super bowl over Kansas City guaranteed

Personally, I want him to play in NE until the wheels fall off. I don't want him slinking away now that he's deteriorating.

 

I want at least one sweep before he's gone. Just one year where the Bills take both Ws from them.

One game does not measure a player.

 

Jimmy G is all Billicheat needs on his schemes, with his knowledge of opposition team game plans ahead of time of teams.

No one game does not but a couple of seasons do. And from what I’ve seen he’s not all that. Wouldn’t be surprised if the 49ers were looking into letting him go this offseason. Paying way too much money for a career game manager

Agreed...

 

Brady and Belichick have this great record vs the Bills with years of BB/Brady vs the likes of Jauron and trent

 

I don't see them not counting those wins

I think he ends up back in NE. Wouldn't shock me to see him with the Titans, though.

 

If I'm NE though I take a hard line approach. Tell Brady he has until the legal tampering period to make up his mind, or it's moving in another direction...then sign Bridgewater if possible.

It would be in his best interest to go to the LA Chargers.  They are flush with weapons and he would be back home on the West Coast where he can continue building his TB12 brand. 

 

What more could he want?

Somewhere without income tax so he can enjoy a higher percentage of his bloated contract.
