Ten games in, I decided to compare stats for Bledsoe, Brady and Mac Jones as starters in their first ten starts.
I know the game now is different than 1993 and 2001 and the talent around Jones is better than Bledsoe and arguably than Brady's first year as a starter.

I am NOT saying Jones will be Brady ...

Very interesting comparison. While it's definitely worth noting that the game is different in 2021 than it was in 2001, you also kinda have to give Jones extra credit since he's a rookie vs. Brady who was not... In my mind those things don't quite equalize, but they do make me a little more comfortable making the comparison between stat lines.

Much much different league for QB's to succeed than 2001 much less 1993.

But no doubt, Mac is the one.

Thank you, Shanny!

I rewatched Bledsoe's first and last game of his rookie season....and wow, what a difference. The turnover from 1992 to 1993 meant there were tons of guys being cycled in during the early part of 1993. Lots of rookies, lots of guys who would go on to do....nothing after playing for the Patriots. Last game...he wins it on a Hail Mary to Crittenden (I think).

Kevin Turner was the Vikings comeback in 1994, down 20-0 and Drew threw it 70 times. Met Turner once when I was 12, RIP
Hope there is a warm bed in hell for that nurse that “took care” of him.

Pats have been blessed with so many quality full backs over the years. Sam Cunningham, Sam Gash, Keith Byers, Mark Edwards, James Develin. Quality guys, lunch pail guys. Loved Kevin Turner here too.

Still pinch myself that Mac Jones fell to us, as that is who I hoped they would get, not that he is establishing myself I am all in.

Seems like a guy would run into at a bar and shoot the crap with.. he was really happy for Meyers.

"Hope there is a warm bed in hell for that nurse that “took care” of him." Can you elaborate? I don't recall the situation.

She basically “allegedly” married him while he was incapacitated while in her care. Thus stealing his finances and any kind of pension that might have been left to his children. Hope the kids won the lawsuit. Never did find out.

Made Nurse Rached look like Mother Theresa.

Oh but she loved him and wanted to be his wife......

Jesus.
Years ago I had a neighbor in his 60's who had a heart attack. While he was in the hospital he met a younger nurse who he left his wife for when he came out of the hospital. He then changed his will and gave everything to his new wife. He was dead within a month.
