    I highly doubt BB consulted with Tom on acquiring Hoyer once Jimmy was traded.

    I don't think BB is concerned in the slightest about pissing off Tom if he traded his stable pony.

    Hoyer had nothing to do with gamplanning vs the Lambs. He functions as a scout team QB. Thats it.

    LOL to the people that say Stidham is ready to be an emergency
    starting NFL QB after (1) preseason game...

    This discussion *may* be worth having next year.

    You'll need to pry smelling salts from Adam Gase's cold, dead hands.

    I would like a QB to at least have one year in our system. It is complicated and we are only using vanilla plays right now in these pre season games.

    That being said Ryan Mallet is a bad analogy. He was dumb as a box of rocks with no athleticism. He was flat out horrible. I thought Stidham played well and looked good. He has athleticism when the play breaks down.

    Stidham has a chance to be a real good player from what we have seen early but he has a long way to go. Keep 3 QB’s this year.

    Agreed. From what I've read Hoyer's work on the team would have to be replaced by both a backup QB and another coaching assistant or two. Besides, Stidham didn't exactly impress me in his first time out there.

    that's what an almost obsessive level of hard work in the film room will do to a guy who's almost good enough.

    Yes. Offering observations and suggestions to the coaching staff does not constitute developing a defensive strategy or a game plan.

    Cassell wasn't a fluke. Remember, he went to the Chiefs and managed a 10 win season before the injury bug hit him. Cassell wasn't a bad quarterback, he was a decent quarterback who finally got a chance, had 2 good seasons out of 3, then got hurt.

    Assuming Stidham continues to get better:
    Dallas Goedert TE [(calf), expected to miss the rest of training camp and the preseason - per NJ.Com]. We'd probably need to give them more than just Hoyer.

    Interesting. I was absolutely convinced that the Pats would NOT draft Stidham for various reasons that I've gone into in other threads (primarily how he responded to adversity last year at Auburn), but clearly I was wrong and he looked great in his first pre-season game.

    I'm not trying to have you defend yourself, but I am genuinely interested in what you saw in Stidham that made him your binky, could you elaborate? Obviously the Patriots have a view of him that was closer to your view, otherwise they wouldn't have drafted him.
