    Brady is 34 - when do we draft his replacement?

    Got to seriously think about getting a QB in here at some point. If the job is going to Hoyer, fine, but he will need a backup as well....

    ....2012. I do think Brady and the team  will lead them to a ring one more time. It just that Brady can't lead the team all by himself.

    We just signed Brady to a 4 year deal and Hoyer is not going to be  (or better not be) the next QB so probably at some point after Bradys current contract. He has said he wants to play into his 40's and if you look at other all time greats they have continued to excel into their mid-to late 30's so we probably dont want to draft him in this contract or he will waste several years on the bench. This also depends on if you believe in drafting a player and just throwing him in the fire (Flacco, Ryan, Bradford,Sanchez) or letting them sit on the bench for a few years and learn the offense (Rodgers). I am more of the mindset that you draft them and sit them on the bench for 1 year and let him learn the offense, and them throw them in the middle the next year.

    What if Jake Locker is still on the board at 33?  Could make sense to give him 3 years to age, ala Aaron Rodgers.

    Keep in mind that Brady has indicated that he wants to play until he's 40. Whether or not his wish comes true is by no means a certainty, but you have to figure he plays until his late 30's, say about 37 or 38.

    That gives the Patriots a window of about 3 years before the retirement questions start to come. At that time, Brady would be 37, and most likely entering the twilight of his career (however, I personally am of the belief that Brady will play until he's 39). I don't think now is the time to go after an eventual successor, I'd say 2012 at the very earliest is that the Pats should (and probably would) begin to look at a QB for the future. If we assume that Brady retires at 37, that would give the replacement a minimum of 2 years before he might be called upon to take Brady's place - a decent amount of time to learn the offense and learn the tricks of the trade from one of the best.
