    For the backup QBs in Brady's 11 years starting (minus 2008 obviously)

    Incredible!!

    It is trying to keep up with a man so demanding, so charming, so in command that if his backup ever enters a meaningful situation, it means panic and chaos has ensued. The last person anyone in New England wants to see is the backup.

    And Patriots fans rarely do. According to stats from the Elias Sports Bureau, aside from in 2008, when Brady suffered a knee injury, only 76 passes have been thrown by backups in the 11 other years that Brady has started. Huard was with the team for three seasons, but he amassed just one pass attempt as Brady's understudy.

    Kind of surprised it's that many, actually. Not that it's a lot, just dude doesn't like to come out.
