    According to Tom Curran.

    Possible veteran presence and sounding board for Brady?

    Lets all hope Tom isn't hurt, or we are looking at a high pick next year.

    I'd rather have Rohan Davey or Michael Bishop. :( Ol' man Testeverde makes Bledslow look like Vick when it comes to mobility.

    Intersting. Maybe they feel that they need a veteran presence at QB. :confused:
    Otherwise I don't get it, and I hope Brady is not hurt.

    Testaverde has played, and excelled, in this system. Kordell Stewart, Michael Bishop and whatever other ridiculous suggestions that have been made - might be fun for you in Madden, but FYI, the Pats offense doesn't require a speedster at QB. Good Lord - clueless crap-fest, every which way.

    It would give Brady someone else he can talk to on the sidelines, what the hell, sign him up.

    Aha! A veteran, okay backup is what we've been missing since 04!
    So this whole time it was Damon Huard who was the glue that kept our dynasty going!

    They had Flutie last year. He must not have been interested.

    I bet the first thing Testicles says to him is to stop crying and get rid of the man-purse.

    Yeah Vinny Green-ball might be a good addition to this team... bummer about that whole "sucking" thing tho.

    One thing I noticed with interest Sunday night was, as the game approached it's denouement, there was a shot of Belichik on the sidelines wearing an expression that seemed to say, "This is not working".

    But then, maybe that's just me and my imagination getting the better of me....

    I think adding Testaverde for the leadership aspect would be great for Brady,If nothing else.Than for criticism, someone he can go to on the sidelines to get some advice from. Testaverde has never been THAT bad IMHO. He has done ok with his career.

    With Brady practicing 8-10hrs a day with his new receivers, they are probably just looking for an additional arm so Brady can rest his some more!

    Great point! I think the veteran, someone to talk to, ect... is part of it--but i also think they want someone to get reps in with the wideouts with the same kind of style as TB. I guess we will see if they sign him!

    who is the QB coach this year or do they have one? I could see this more for Vinny T than anything. Who knows what work him out entails, perhaps they had him review film etc.
