Belichcik is in a coaching quandry. Does he give Brady a lot of time in the preseason games, possibly get him injured, or wear out his arm, while trying to get rythm and familiarity with the new WR corps? Or does he control the number of Brady throws, work Brady with the new receivers mostly in controlled camp condidtions, and try to get coaching time and route running with the youngsters, while saving Brady and Brady's arm? If I were BB I'd go the second route. Protect Brady and Brady's arm, first and foremost. The new receivers have to learn NFL and Patriots option route running. They can best do that in camp, under the careful coaching eye of he and his assistants. There will be all season for them to work rythm. If BB chooses the second approach that should give Mallett lots of preseason game exposure. It is his third preseason, but in reality it is really only his second full Training Camp due to the Lockout, and it should be time to also see what he can do. With all the young WRS, I'd expect a lot of bad/wrong routes to be run. Those usually lead to INTs, some of which look inexplicable. Part of the POISE test is for the young QB to be heckled by ignorant fans, and there are plenty of Mallett haters awaiting their chance. Can Belichick risk ruining Mallett's confidence on a series of bad preseason games? Or is it time to put the POISE test to Mallett, sink or swim, as he did to Cassell in 2008, to determine if he is ready to play and can handle screwups and poor appearances. As Irecall Cassell was going into his fourth TC, before the gruesome POISE test. BB doesn't usually do this until his young QB candidate is deemed ready for it. I would, but Belichck knows better than any of us the state of Mallett's readyness, good or bad, but likely for adversity. What would you do?
