    With the Pats season over and free agency (hopefully) and the draft still a ways away, I figured this would be a good time to look back - and look forward - with some discussion at each position on the team.

    Quarterback
    Tom Brady
    Brian Hoyer
    Jonathan Compton (practice squad)

    Maybe the Pats and the Colts could employ the same strategy. Use their #1 QB during the regular season, and then let the backup work those playoff games.


    Lol I jest.

    I would really like to draft Greg McElroy with a late pick. He may not have the arm strength to be a starting NFL QB, but his intelligence and intangibles are off the chart. I was a Brady fan from his Michigan days, and McElroy has shades of Brady.

    Not saying he'll be a HOFer or anything, but I think he'd at least be a decent back-up and well worth a 5th or 6th round pick.

    Weren't people relatively high on Crompton? Maybe we can get Ponder aka Pennington Jr.

    Some mediots covering this team have managed to not learn a thing in the process. Some teams really need veteran backups and lots of option in camp. This team isn't one of them.

    I like McElroy if he doesn't go too early in the desperate quest for a QB. There is a guy over on Extreme Skins who came up with some sort of computer metric for predicting the potential success level of QB draft prospects. He's very high on McElroy and says he projects (within this class) to be the only potential possible next Brady...

    You can improve arm strength and accuracy (although he's already fairly accurate) via conditioning and mechanics. Poise, field vision, pocket presence, decision making, the drive to master reading defenses and continue working on your game, leadership on and off the field...not as easily developed...nor are bad habits easily untaught.

    Free-Agent Fit: Quarterback - New England Patriots Blog - espnBoston - Mike Rodak

    One more look at the position. Rodak correctly rates the need low; he doesn't think the Pats will add any free agent quarterback
