2 QBs that are former #1 overall picks and the Patriots don’t have a QB. Hmm.

 Their are a bunch of closet Brady and Belly fans here by the looks of some of these posts... shameful at best...

 

Go Bills!!!

 

My fandom of Bill isn't even closeted. I pretty much love him. As someone who has coached semi-pro sport myself my respect and admiration for Bill Belichick is off the charts.

 

Brady is much easier to hate.

I’m sorry.  You knew Brady was going to be a HOF’er after his rookie season??  That’s amazing man!  Seriously!

 

I suspect you’re in the wrong line of work if you predicted his career trajectory after his rookie season where he was 1/3 for 6 yards.

 

No, I didn't know.  Neither did the Cheaters.  Otherwise they wouldn't have given Bledsoe a 10-year extension after that season/prior to the 2001 season.

 

The point is, you can't use one of the most rare examples in the history of the NFL and say "it could happen again."  Just like I wouldn't say "why did the Bills trade for Diggs?  They drafted a HOF'er in Andre Reed in the 4th round in 1985."

BB doesn’t use jack@ss QBs that want to promote their brand or act like high school attention whor3s to run his offense. He uses a smart, mature, QB that makes sound decisions. Brady was that ten fold. Cam and Jameis are the exact opposite. I doubt they have the maturity level of a middle schooler... and that is a slight against middle schoolers.

Any individual associated with that organization is tainted, and not worthy of admiration.

I never once stated that Jarrett Stidham is or was ever going to be as good as Tom Brady, dude!!!!!!!  

 

I’m merely posted that I suspect that the Patriots are content going into the season with Stedham, Hoyer and a draft pick. Go back and read all of my posts in this thread again, do some drawings or a story map to aid your comprehension, and then go kick rocks.

Don't get your panties in a bunch because YOU brought up Brady's rookie season when I mentioned Stidham's.  You should have just stuck to that last part.

I actually think they are content with Jarrett Stidham as their starter and Hoyer as the backup.  I also think they’ll draft a QB to develop/compete.

With a rookie year stat-line of 2 for 4 for 14 yards, no TDs and a pick-six, what's not to love?

And Tom Brady was 1/3 for 6 yards during his entire rookie season.  What’s your point?  Unknown commodity.  

 

It has been reported that the Patriots have been encouraged about what they have seen from Stidham in practice.  I don’t know man...

Our “exchange” in time order.  I only used Tom Brady as an example because, like Jarrett, he played sparingly behind an established QB and did not put up “encouraging” statistics.  Both were/are relatively unknown commodities at those respective points in their careers.

 

Does that make sense to you now?  Do you breathe through your mouth a lot?

It's not my fault you made a stupid comparison and then got all uppity when I called you on it.  Dumbass.

 

You don’t really believe that because I know you as a poster here and you’re not that dumb.  I’m done with you.

My money is on the Pats ending up with Eason or Fromm. 

I’d laugh.  Fromm was a game manager in college and has Matt Barkley arm strength.  Eason has physical tools but apparently is a tool.

Belichick wants a guy to come in and run the system. The system is short to intermediate precise throws and taking care of the football. Don't take risks, just take what the defense gives you. Don't try to do too much.

 

Does that sound anything like Newton or Winston? They are two square pegs that do not fit into the round hole of NE's offense.

In 2018, before he hurt his shoulder, Cam was hitting 67% of his passes and had a 22 td to 7 int ratio (along with 4 rushing tds).  Obviously health is a huge issue but I’d be worried if they got Newton.  He literally had a bunch of scrubs most of his time in Carolina besides Olsen.  And Winston, who just had eye surgery, is a moron but he is also as talented as any passer in the nfl.  Those two guys upsides scare me as a Bills fan if they went to NE.  
 

Personally, the funniest move would be for NE to sign Kaepernick and have everyone’s head explode. 😄

I know he was in a weird offense in college but I’d be stocked if Stidham turns into a starting level qb.   He was hardly special in college and he’s just hyped because the Pats took him.

No matter who Belichick has at QB, I would still pick them to win the division. Cam would be our worse case scenario if can return to his MVP. 

yep.  Still insta-loss x2 for the Bills until they can (finally) prove otherwise

Totally And respectfully disagree Gunner.  Brady maybe a d bag but I have a ton more respect for him.  He made himself the GOAt from being a 6th rounder who lost his job in college (bs reason too).  Belichick gets all this credit but has never won anything as a head coach without him (that Cassell season was a team coming off a 18-1* season).  And besides this year, how many times have the Pats had great defenses? I would bet good money on the Bucs having a better season than the Pats.  I think 9 wins is going to win the AFC East this year.

Both are terrible fits for the New England offense.

 

Cam Newton has always been most effective as a dual-threat, thanks to his running ability and big arm.  His strength has never been accuracy, patience or dissecting defensive schemes.  Pretty much the complete opposite of Tom Brady.  This is without starting to consider the way injuries have taken a toll.  There is a reason that most people believe Cam is done as a starting/franchise QB in this league.

 

Jameis Winston is purely a pocket-passer, but he is totally reckless with turnovers.  If Belichick is counting on the defense to carry the Patriots this year, the absolute last thing he needs is a guy who throws 3-4 interceptions a game.  After 5 years in the league, I doubt this is something coaches can still fix.  And with the current WR weapons the Patriots have, I doubt Winston will be able to duplicate the touchdowns he threw with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

 

As mentioned, the other problem is cap space.  The Patriots are currently at about $1.1 million, which isn't even enough to sign their draft picks.

I can't see either Newton or Winston agreeing to play for less than $15 million per year, which would put them at the bottom of the NFL in starting QBs - not counting the guys still on rookie deals.

Brady is the GOAT. But even so.... winning so consistently cannot be done without great coaching.

Their skill sets are not similar besides both being able to throw the ball.  Cap room is a major issue for New England as has been stated.   I expect Belichick to draft a QB and maybe keep an older veteran on the roster to back up Stidham.

Cam has made a lot of money.  Without an offer he likes, he just might sit out a year.  He got pretty beat up over the years....maybe like Megatron in Detroit...time to get out.  Winston has the arm, not the head I am guessing based on 30 ints.  He is going to have to take backup money and try to win a job......I read Winston has matured, but, he had a lot of that to do........he does have fire in the belly though, somebody will take a shot with him imho.  Cam I am not so sure.

I’m totally sure about Bill Walsh did nothing without Montana.  McCarthy won a lot of games but imo, he should have won SBs with Rodgers.  People questioned Reid as a coach (stupid B word still).  Think about all the coaches Manning elevated.  Then when he got a potential all time great qb, he won a Sb.

 

personally, I think coaching is very overrated in the nfl.  If Allen is good, McDermott will be good.  Belichick is a great coach but he has a losing record until Brady.  I think a top 5 Qb matters a ton more than a coach.  Imo, the best coach and he never gets credit for it is Joe Gibbs.  3 SBs with 3 different qbs.  A lot different than riding the same qb to multiple wins. JMO.
