    Rex, not Rex he's been my hero since I was a kid.*

    Seriously he's a hard nosed player who yes will turn 30 in July but whose performance could improve with a new QB in charge.

    Plus he could be a low cost extension with measured use over the next few years.

    I'm curious how the offense evolves.

    Was Michel secretly hurt and can Harris get some quality reps.

    The young 15 OL competing for spots.

    Trying to figure out if I dare to question whether Stidham could be better than Brady in working with all the WRs.

    I'm officially all in on Stidham. I did kinda want Newton, but think I am fine rolling with the second year. For me, I don't need a 12-4 season to be happy. 9-7 and Stidhim showing good decision making would be enough. Heck, a losing season is fine too but I am just being greedy with keeping our winning seasons going. :D

    Because that is exactly how we all know and remember the GOAT. Running away from adversity is almost his trademark, amirite ?

    And all that even ignores things like Brady saying he went into last year thinking it most probably is his last here and whatnot.

    People on Twitter just pulling not provable "league source" out of their ass to get a couple retweets and followers.

    I like Stidham since he is on the Patriots.
    How he does is TBD

    Clearly think this is partial truth and partially ********. I would not be surprised if the kid was making plays or "outplaying" Brady in Practice. Because Brady was clearly hurt or slowed with arm tiredness/something, he never misses practice.

    I highly doubt BB didn't recognize that as the reason. Now what BB may have been thinking is this kid has something. Was it enough for BB to move on from Tom? Probably not. But did it make it easier to not go full tilt to bring him back? Maybe.

    But yeah I don't see Brady ever running away from a challenge. I will stick with, I think the breakup was mutual and there will be shared custody of the six kids once they find new homes in the HoF!

    Time to move on and root for the kid!

    For what it matters, JG was 11th last year in DVOA and 12th in QBR. Seems about right. Not quite top ten.

    Brady would never throw up INTs like Winston did -- but he might not throw up all those TD's either. The Tampa receivers benefited from all the reckless gunslinging Winston was doing. Wouldn't expect the same number if TD's with a less reckless QB.

    Of course if Gronk plays like he did 5 years ago...

    No one has ever come out of the gate like Mahomes. Certainly not Brady. I think we'd all be delighted if JS had a year comparable to TB's rookie year. Or JG's first full year. i.e. a better than average starter pushing the top 10.

    Good point. Not being able to score after going up 28-3 in Q3 was an epic collapse.

    Give me a break.
    After the first 20 or so picks, the Draft is a crap-shoot...and, as Ryan Leaf and Johnny Manziel attest, even then you can't be sure.
    This is all nonsense. Sixth round, anyone? Or the ninth, when Johnny U. was picked?

    I'm playing wait and see as well. Await the scouting report with regards to his quickness. If deemed cat-like, that bumps my evaluation of Stidham up.

    Which is a heck of a lot more powerful than "some guy said" or Felger or Bertram said ( which is about the same as some guy said)...

    That is pretty much the best case scenario from my POV.

    Brady wasn't doing any special things until 2004 and you can see that reflected in how his Y/A -- or ANY/A if you wan't to be fancy -- made a jump by almost an entire yard after 2003. It took him 1 year on the bench and 3 years starting to develop into one of the top QBs in the league.

    The only relevant thing with Stidham will be if he keeps improving and learning from mistakes he will inevitably make. My hope is that his arrow is still pointing in the right direction after this season is over.

    If he is a perfectly average QB that keeps improving month by month then at least we have someone to built on for the next 2 years. And if he turns into a top 5 QB in the future once he can put it all together then we are golden. But expecting magical things that outliers like Mahomes have shown early is just a fool's errand and a certain way to be disappointed.

    Mahomes makes a lot of mistakes. Hill has bailed him out many times and Mahomes has bailed himself out many times because of his extraordinary athleticism.

    I agree that if Stidham is Brady 2001, that’s a huge win. I’ll happily take a game manager for this season.
