So, that is what you look like, Rusty!
One thing to say this, another to mention a name or two. So easy to say "The Pats need to do X" then not offer anything concrete. Who can the Pats get RIGHT NOW that accomplishes your recommendation? Also, is there a QB that could have done what TB did this year with the offense he was given? If there is, you may have something there, but, most talking heads are giving a significant amount of credit to Brady for accomplishing what he did with the derth of talent he had to throw to for which no other QB could have.
I did not say that Brady waS DONE. I did not say Brady had a bad year.
I did say they need to get some one to actually challenge him for the job. He is now 36 At 38 in 2 yrs there will quite likely be a need for a REAL back up QB. If they get some one now he will have time to learn the system under Brady.
As far as offering up a name. I do not know all the QBs coming up in the draft and the FA seem to be all over 30.
The Pats need to find that smart QB that is similar to Brady if there is one. That guy who is good enough but like Brady may have been pushed aside for the next hot shot. He11 Wilson was not expected to be all he is. So they are out there. I do not want the "SURE" thing as it will cost too much and could cause issues with in the team.
I just believe way too much can happen in the next 2 to 4 yrs to Brady that could cause the very quick decension of the Pats regardless if he wants to play till he is 45. In the late 30's your body starts to do things that you do not expect.
Understood. Still, Brady, has shown no sign he is about to "fall off the cliff". It may not happen this draft, most likely next year, unless an injury occurs, in which we may see a back-up QB on the team that can stand the test of this fan base to be the successor to TB.
One question that can be asked: "Will the Pats draft for another pocket type passer or go the route of a "wilson" type player?"
