If Brown knuckles down and doesn't fuck up and cause unrest in the team then The Patriots will roll everyone over this year.

Not likely mid season assuming he doeant get hurt. He looked like himself Sunday night
Agreed, he is in good shape for a 42 year old. Still, if he does get hurt, he will heal a bit slower than a 30 year old, and the Patriots season will suffer. The backup QB to Brady is Jarrett Stidham - a 4th round pick, 133rd of the draft, with no real regular season NFL experience. The Pats need Brady healthy.

Really can be said for anyone's starter but yeah, especially a guy that green.

Pat's vs the field I'm taking the Pat's.

Yeah, they are hard to bet against. Can you imagine Brady with seven SB rings as starting QB? A record that will never be broken. I seriously doubt that six will ever be touched.

Probably not. In an era with rules to protect against dynasties they have one. Even more amazing it's basically two constant parts, brady and belichick. They do an amazing job of building their roster year in year out.

Given the way qb's get paid and what that does to roster depth someone getting 3 let alone 6 is a stretch

Brady was a 6th round pick mind you. I know that's an anomaly, but still.

Yeah, that is true, but Brady has turned out a bit different than most QBs selected that late. He is a phenomenon of sorts. Still playing well at 42, 6 SB wins, and coming in as an unheralded player - it is sort of mind boggling.

yes, but the pre nfl football requires slightly different things from a qb than the nfl so it's a bit more of a random choice than other positions
Kinda what I was getting at.

We know Brady wasn't. Was Brees, Ben, Rodgers, Rivers et al top picks??
