    Brady has 5 or 6 years left to play and by then Mallett will be in his late 20's where you are expected to have 3 or 4 years of starting experience to be considered a franchise QB. I see Mallett being a franchise QB though, except not in NE, and you have to be wishing Brady to suck or get injured to think Mallett will ever be the face of the Patriots. Mallett is not wating 6 years on the bench to finally start lmao

    If Brady does have 5 or 6 yrs left, it's not written in stone that he will play all of those years here.

    Interesting comments.. remember Joe Montana and Steve Young, it is good to have what might be a pretty good qb as your back up..

    But in reality it is difficult to predict much of anything after half of the first pre season game...

    With QBs playing till 40 nowadays I don't see why Brady won't be the starter until he retires. He's never been a guy who used his feet so I can't see him regressing like a Mike Vick or Mcnabb. Unless Brady's arm gets injured he will never be below number 1 in the depth chart. Even if he only plays for 3 or 4 years only it will be too long and Mallett will be gone by then.

    Mallet was not brought in to replace Brady. He was brought in to replace Hoyer who will be an RFA after this season. The plan is to unload Hoyer and have a guy already on the roster who has had a year to learn the system.

    If Brady only lasts a few more years before hanging them up, Mallet will be an option to succeed him. If Brady stays longer, then Mallet can be dealt for draft picks and the process repeats itself all over again.

    Can we now stop talking about this?

    He's also one blown blocking assignment away from having his career ended and either of Hoyer or Mallett stepping in to his shoes. That's the nature of football.

    Never take anything for granted loloooooooooooo.

    this isn't real life buddy it's pretty hard to see the tone in his posts, and considering there are tons of people who are slow in the head in the internet I wouldn't be surprised if he was serious

    So you guys are expecting Brady to get hurt soon? Even then it's too early for Mallet to come in and Hoyer is not good enough to take over

    I think it's sufficient to ignore you moving forward if that's what you took from my post.

    All I got is that the NFL is so dangerous Starting QB's careers ending is a common occuring thing... Brady got knocked out once, but he is a very durable QB and expecting him to get hurt is just looking at everything at the worst case. Drafting Mallett was for him to replace Hoyer as the backup, but he's definitely not going to be the franchise QB barring a freak accident

    I'm not sure what's so funny here.

    Want to let us in on the joke?

    I'd like to see you inform Belichick of all this at his next press conference. Now THAT would be funny!

    How many QB have won SB's at 40 yrs old?

    That is the goal around here you know......

    There is of course no guarantee Mallett will become a great QB, just as there is no guarantee Brady will be this productive at 39 yrs old. The history seems to say that QB's don't play at an elite level past 38, if Brady is the exception fine with me.

    IF Mallett develops and fulfills the potential of his arm with the ability to become an elite qb in terms of reading D's the I would pay top $$$ to keep him around the year or 2 until Brady retires.

    This is a silly thread at this time however.

    Mallett has one good half in a preseason game and all of a sudden everybody is in a panic.

    Seeing as how the Pats control him for four years, I doubt he will be gone if brady only plays for three.

    Besides, while I agree that QBs can play until late 30's, that doesn't mean that Brady will. He might have other plans for his life. And he could get hurt. Planning for that eventuality is not wishing he gets hurt as said above, it is just planning for contingencies.

    Bottom line: whatever happens, Mallett > Curtis Painter

    Brady will be 37 at end of contract and I do not see him playing until he is 38-40



    Offer him a a 1-2 deal at most. how will Mallett not be a viable candidate for the job? We have yet to see him audible or pick up blitzes yet.... I'm just saying if he is the next coming he beats Brady out. Best case scenario would be Mallett beating out a "healthy" Brady on the last yr. of Both deals.



    I love TFB we don't know enough intel yet, but assuming Mallett progresses into an ELITE QB how do we not lock him up?:confused:

    In five years we trade Brady to the Dolphins, how old will Chad Henne be?
    For three number ones and Tony Sporano signs a new ten year deal.

    thing is Mallett wont ever get the chance to show he's an elite QB as long as he is in NE, and like I said as long as he is here he wont because preseason games mean about as much as a team winning 11 games and not making the playoffs


    Brady says himself he plans to play till he's 40 and I see thats reasonable as medicine is better and Brady doesn't use athleticism to succeed anyway so he should be able to play till 40


    well I'm not everyone so why do you keep bringing this up? sarcasm on the internet is like winking on the phone for crying out loud.


    haha Mallet wouldn't beat out a corpse of Brady are you kidding me?
    Implying Bledsoe is anywhere near as good as Brady... I was hearing these same exact things too when Brady went down and Cassel came in and did "good" which wasn't even good... Unless Brady quits his production will always be top 3

    Huh? There are plenty of teams that would kill to have a QB do what Cassel did in 2008...and yeah it was 'good', very good considering his lack of experience. and two 400 yards games...

    Out of curiosity, when the Patriots have the game in hand and Brady is taken out of the game, if Belichick inserts Mallett into the game ahead of Hoyer (or vice versa) does that not constitute an opportunity?

    Brady plays as long as he's the best QB on the roster and producing.

    Stupidity on the internet is the same as stupidity in a physical environment.

    I disagree.

    Refer to my comment about stupidity on the internet.
