I don’t understand people posting old articles about the Pats liking Stidham and Mallett. First of all, obviously the situations are very different. Brady was still here for both of those stories. Secondly, even if you wanted to pretend they’re apples-to-apples, why does it matter? Even IF you want to pretend that Bill really thought Stidham was the next great starter for the NEP and he was wrong - oh well, he was wrong. Does that mean we shouldn’t discuss this report that they’re high on Jones and get excited about it? We’re barred from being positive about Jones’ development because some other past QB flamed out? What are we doing here then?
