[QUOTE]'97 was clearly a typo. u may not have ever done that because u have somehow delusionally convinced yourself of your perfection. No, I make typos all the time. But I'll re-read my post before I submit it so I can fix any errors. And it's not so I will look "perfect", but so people can actually know what it is I'm trying to say. Which is why I also try to use proper grammar and punctuation. This is not a text message forum, so the run-on sentences and abbreviated words are a pain in the a s s to read. i have been bleedg and sweatg it out with this team for decades and can vividly remember how untouchable bledsoe once was too. and how joe montana had that bill too. They kept Bledsoe as the starter in 01 even though Brady had a better camp. And by the time he was benched he was well past his "prime". Tom has not shown that. If he were to come back and become a statue like Bledsoe (as if saying " here I am, sack me ") then I'd expect him to be benched, too. I also believe that trading Montana was a mistake. Though Steve Young was ready to start, Joe still had some fire left in him. And he had better composure in the big game than Young. But there is no future HOF QB here behind Brady. if brady gets injured and misses along chunks again and o'connell leads us to a super bowl victory, u seriously think its a foregone conclusion that brady will not b traded? i ultimately cheer for the front of the jersey. whoever is on the bak is disposable, b it brady, moss, bruschi or anyone else. I don't think O'Connell could lead this team to the playoffs! That being said, Cassell did well enough last season. Had they made the playoffs (a matter of a game or two going in a different direction), he may have led them to the SB. The Steelers would have been tough to overcome, though. But I think then they would still not trade Brady. Of course, they would have got better than the #34 pick for Matt in that scenario! While trading any player is always an option, I just don't see it happening to Brady until he proves he cannot get it done any more. There is also the marketing standpoint to the issue. Dumping Tom would be extremely bad PR, and would likely cost the team a lot of revenue. There is also no "heir apparent", and nobody who could come in and improve the team.

mr. grub, there is nothing new under the sun. in less than a year, mr. bledsoe really went from a top 10 golden boy franchise QB to being a scrub? u kidding me... do not kid yourself into complacency. what happened to drew can easily repeat itself with tom. mr. don mojekowski (?) meet bret favre the scrub. mr. favre the now legend meet mr. rodgers your backup. mr. favre dont let the door hit u on your way out, aaron is now our undisputed king. i digress but my point is that just as we had no clue about how great cassell could really b til he got in the situation, it will b likewise with hoyer as it was for brady. the common theme here my friend... is bill belichick. he is more responsible for brady's success than brady is for his! i can think of a lot of teams and systems in which SKB would not have thrived at the heights he has reached under belichick. but i can think of a lot of QBs who could have reached similar heights with belichick as brady has. in bill i trust... in tom, i roll with the flow. again, i would like to initiate a thread specifically on this topic but i have a limit to how much hate speech i can absorb.
at some point during those contract negotiations, bill may make these points very clear to mr. gisele. thats y i created the thread about him possibly being traded. tom may not like hearg that and things can quickly escalate.
as for montana and young, i must admit to having a personal bias towards young. to me, he and elway were just special... period! if young had a bit more years under his belt, i would actually rank him a notch higher than montana. young's skillset was superior to montana's in just about every way. he was michael vick, troy aikman, brady and peyton all rolled into one! as it is, i will pick brady right now as the best QB in the history of the game followed by peyton, followed by elway, then montana and YOUNG!
