    He talks about having "fun" at OTA's and workouts. Then he says stuff like:

    “I’ll do whatever they need me to do...I’m part of this team right now. Hopefully, I’ll be this fall. So that’s what I’m looking forward to...I got a feeling I’ll be able to prove myself one day...Until then, i just got to keep working hard and do my job.”

    Sounds like his off-season program included daily jugs of Kool-Aid.

    It's tough having 2 potential starting QB's backing up Brady. Seems like a wasted roster spot unless you can get something for one of them. The competition to be the #2 QB will be intense.

    Keep your nose clean and learn the playbook. Let's see the arm and brain work together this spring. :)

    It's an interesting predicament when you have the three best Quarterbacks in the AFC East all occupying the same depth chart. ;)

    huh?

    worry about keeping your own nose clean.......he's been a model citizen since he's been here.......

    truthfully, only one backup has starter potential......it ain't hoyer

    LOL......he'll be starting when brady retires in 2-3 years. If Aaron rodgers could wait, so can Mallett

    I thought he'd be a great fit in Cleveland. Before you say WCO, Brandon Weeden isn't exactly nimble. Mallett had a year under his belt learning an NFL system. Is 6 years younger. And, played better in college. He's a much better prospect than Weeden. They used a 1st round pick on him. I think BB would have taken their 2nd rounder for Mallett if it was offered.

    Mallett has a ++ arm, if he put in the work and learns the game he is who I want replacing Brady n 3-4 years when Brady retires.

    He ic certainly saying all the right things and putting in the offseason work.

    Gotta agree with random here: if the "decision" is that Mallett becomes the starter because TFB is retiring, that day's still gonna suck a lot.

    Yep the day when the GOAT retires is not going to be good the question is how do you minimize the loss (and hopefully) continue to field a championship contending team.

    Someday all players retire no matter how great.

    It will be a sad day when Mr Bundchen hangs it up regardless who takes the reigns.

    The one thing I don't get about you is the overweaning need to inject a Gisele reference into every Brady discussion... Because you otherwise seem like a pretty savvy and well adjusted fan...

    Does anyone else thinks he looks ill in those 2 pictures? He just looks far too skinny for his size.

    Back the point of his game though: If he learns how to control that cannon of an arm he's got and learns when to use it and when make a touch pass, he will be a very, very good QB. From what I've seen of him in college and pre-season when he panics or can't see an open receiver he tends to "do a Favre" and just back his arm.
