    With all these best threads, time to look at the other side of the coin.

    Joe Kapp, QB

    In a game in KC, Kapp threw interceptions on three consecutive plays. One was fumbled back to us and one was nullified by penalty. Nonetheless, three interceptions in 90 seconds. In 1970, the only year he played for us, we scored a league low 140 points. Kapp led us to the number one pick in the draft.

    We drafted Jim Plunkett who was to be tutored by Kapp. One month later, Kapp announced his surprise retirement. Plunkett was forced to start as a rookie and took a beating. Plunkett limped off to the west years later where he won two Super Bowls as a starter.

    Joe Krapp, indeed. Worst Patriot starter I ever saw. Who's yours?

    come on he was such a great Patriot doesnt deserve to be in this thread. 2nd best QB in team history and it is an insult to the organization to put him in here.

    Steve martin wasn't anything to write home about. I'd put Monty "I'd rather just avoid the tackle" Beisel and Chris Canty at the top though.

    Who was that stiff we had back in the 80's - Sims I think?

    Antonio Langham. That game in 2000 at the Meadowlands still haunts me today (not really).

    Bledsoe 48 25 253 2 4

    Remember those numbers? That was superbowl 31.

    I stand by my pick. Drew Bledsoe.

    Kenny Sims. He really wasn't that bad, he was just so not worth the #1 overall pick in the draft.

    He was Bobby Hamilton, a good run stopping DE. He had no pass rushing ability at all. You don't spend the top overall pick on a run stopping lineman.

    Trevor Matich. Eugene Chung. Those are two lousy 1st round picks. Imagine Matt Light and Logan Mankins turning out like them.

    Sorry Chowza, I can't agree with you. Bledsoe, when he had a good O-line, was a very good QB and he carried this team for years.

    I have to agree that guys like Marc Wilson, Scott Secules, and Marion Butts have to be on the list of worst starters.

    Also Donald Hayes has to be there.

    The OL will hold up as much as it can, if you can't move in the pocket your not a suitable QB, ask Buffalo/Dallas. QB has to work with the OL, step up in the pocket if necessary to avoid someone whose getting beat on the outside. Bledsoe was horrible. Stop making excuses for him. Bledsoe = overrated.

    I thought the point was worst STARTER; not worst draft picks. Did matich even see the field? Did chung play other than pre-season?

    uhhh hello; one game stats versus the HOFer reggie white. ??

    And did you notice the game you chose. THE SB - the loser of that game is #2 out of 32 teams. In the Olympics they call that WINNING THE SILVER. Not worst starter to ever play for the team.

    You are one vindictive son of a gun. Let it go already; he's been gone for 5 years.


    For me the anti-Bledsoe response: Max Lane.

    Oh there was a HOF'er on the Packers roster.. sounds like more excuse making to me.

    Silver medal...first loser...

    Respective to Drew's contract he was detrimental to the team.

    Logic > Sentiment.

    GGthx.

    It's always nice to see the people who don't let reality get in the way of their petty vendettas. I don't recall, for example, Bledsoe letting Desmond Howard chew him up on special teams. Was Drew out on the field when that was happening? Who was the quarterback that took that overmatched team all the way to the Super Bowl?

    Some numbers about Bledsoe:

    Among the league's all-time top 50
    Pass attempts: 5
    Completions: 5
    Passing yards: 7
    Passing TDs: 13


    Yes, let's call him the Patriots' worst starter ever. :rolleyes:

    Bledsoe was third behind Brady and Grogan... Drew had some good moments, and is certainly not the worst Qb in Pats History..

    Problem with your stats they all tie in directly with the numbers of years hes been in the league. I don't even need to look up numbers to know he has Brady in every one of those categories.

    Bledsoe is not the worst starter in Pats history. But he definitely deserves honorable mention in my book.

    How about QB Rating? Win:Loss Ratio? etc..

    Bledsoe should not even be thought of on this list, as much as I did not care for him, he did a lot of good stuff while he was here. He had many games where on his arm he kept us in the game, he never feigned injury.. remember the game with the pin sticking out of his finger. If you want to look at QB's who stunk up this place look at Tony Eason, Joe Kapp and a few others. We are spoiled by Brady and everyone else pales to him.. however, Bledsoe was not even close to the worse starter in history on this team.

    Ron Sellers was a wide receiver who didn't like to be tackled. He

    would have been terrific if the NFL played flag football.

    It has to be Mike Taliaferro just because he lost his job to Joe Kapp (and if he can't beat out Kapp...)

    The name Bledsoe shouldn't even be on this thread. He was an excellent payer for us and he kept us in contention for several years. We were heartsick when he went down and we thought the season was done.

    Even when he was traded to Buffalo, as some of you might remember, there were many who wanted him to stay. Buffalo thought, with good reason, that he would make them into a contender.

    Bledsoe as one of the worst starters in Patriot history? Nonsense.

    The QB before Taliaferro, Tom Sherman, was worse, at least statistically. QBs per year back then went:

    '67 Parilli (good career but nearing the end)
    '68 Sherman
    '69 Taliaferro
    '70 Kapp
    '71 Plunkett (misused)

    Makes you appreciate Brady (understatement of the year :p ) and, yes, Drew Bledsoe.
