    I think that the Pats should bring in Drew as the QB coach, he helped mentor Tom Brady and Tony Romo, one who went on to be a future hall of famer and the other a 3 time pro-bowler. I think we should bring him in to work with Ryan Mallet, their style of play is very similar.

    UUUHHHHHHH no thanks.

    I appreciate what Drew did for the franchise, HOWEVER there was stuff he was terrible at and I don't want that passed onto Mallet.

    Mallett is learning at the feet of the GOAT IMO, leave him there to get it or not.

    Besides Drew is running his winery and living the good live, WTH would he want to work 12 hrs a day as an assistant coach?

    Yes, great Idea.

    Lets bring back Moroney to mentor Ridley and Vereen on the latest dance moves too.

    yeah...this is a great idea!!!...let's take it further..let's bring back Max Lane to teach our tackles his famous "Ole!" toreador moves...or Todd Rucci to instruct them on the finer points of getting pushed BACKWARDS 7 yards on straight ahead dive plays...brilliant....then Drewpy can hold a few sessions on the proper facial exercises for that patented "Deer In The Headlights" look he made so famous...:bricks:

    Ok, come on now. At least Drew has a stable life. I'm just saying it's a little disrespectful to put a Patriots HOF'er in the same sentence as.....that guy. I mean, Maroney's so bad his name should be banned from this forum.

    Good troll. You have people in this thread who seem to think that was a serious suggestion.

    The problem with this idea is that Drew would fall asleep in team meetings and nothing would get done.

    Hmmm for some reason I read this as Drew Brees and thought it was going to be a joke thread. Sadly disappointed it did not turn out that way.

    First, Drew is happy living in Montana away from the NFL. He would not be interested in coming back.

    Second, I seriously doubt that Brady is the QB he is today because of the mentoring by Bledsoe in 2001. Brady would have been Brady with or without Bledsoe. Bledsoe probably only helped him in the short term in terms of his mentoring.

    Third, word was the relationship between Brady and Bledsoe got contentious over the course of the season. Bledsoe was reportedly less supportive as the season went along and he realized that he might not get his job back.

    I don't think a player with A level physical skills who was held back by a D level understanding of playing the position makes a good coach.
    He did not mentor Tom Brady. He just happened to be here at the same time. Brady immediately went out and played the position the way it was coached, not the way Bledsoe played it. Bledsoe would have been a better QB if he let Brady mentor him.
    Not quite sure how you want to give Bledsoe credit for Romo.
    The coaching of Mallett should focus on making him less like Bledsoe, because in this system playing like Bledsoe would not be good for your career.

    Drew never mentored Brady. Belichick and Charlie did. Drew was supportive of Brady to a point. Tom is a hard guy not to like personally as a teamate. Brady did as much to salvage/maintain that relationship as Drew ever did. It was a sign of his early maturity.

    Drew never mentored Romo, nor would he back him up...

    People have this unrealistic view of the relationship between starting QB's and the guys who back them up and dream of replacing them. Brady is supportive of the other guys in his unit...to a point. He answers questions and allows them to learn by osmosis - but it's on them to observe and on them and the position coach to develop. Brady doesn't have them all over for film breakdowns on Tuesdays. He's too busy and focused on doing his own job to the best of his ability. He may workout with them some in the offseason (did with Cassel and has with Hoyer because they are friends off the field and spend their offseasons in California). They are also all now married guys with young families so they have more in common with each other than they do with Mallett. Was the same deal with Brady and Bledsoe when he first arrived. Bledsoe's buddy was Huard. Tom wasn't even on Drew's radar until he outperformed him in TC in 2001. And at that point the last thing on Drew's mind was likely mentoring him. Only real piece of advice we ever heard him impart was go out there and just sling it. Luckily he listened to his coaches and was careful with the ball instead.

    Just because a player was never great doesnt mean they cannot be a great coach, look at the best coaches in the game, how many of them were great players?

    One needs to be able to understand what's going on and what should go on, and be able to impart that understanding to someone else, the QB whisperer was never a great, or even good QB but he was able to be a great coach, has Bledsoe ever demonstrated he can do that?

    I think many of Mallett's issues would have been fixed if he sought out someone like the QB whisperer to aid with his mechanics. That said, McDaniels has shown a talent for developing QBs, I'm comfortable with him.

    I was not a big fan of Bledsoe's QB abilities, but if he didn't handle his demotion with the class that he did, he could have split the 2001 locker room in half and destroyed the Pats chances. If it's true that he grew less supportive as the season went along, then I'm even more impressed that he kept quiet about it.

    Drew may not have publicly shown his destructive potential, although I do recall a few pressers where he was less than selfless, but privately he was far from accommodating. And he was using his old and well established back channel methods of voicing his displeasure via his media toadies. Cafardo in particular was his point man. Borges was on board as well (since they now had a common enemy).

    What you should be most impressed with was the way a 23 year old kid handled the entire situation.
