In response to nyjetssuc's comment:
If Brady goes down we are doomed..yeah, so, what's new with this premise....it's been that way since the year they traded Bledsoe....Cassell's year, as we have seen, was a miracle from God...If Brady goes down, we have no one to win with this team available anywhere in the league.....so...just hope he makes it through the year in one piece.
Cassel's year wasn't a miracle from god, unless you're referring to Belichick. A QB can look like garbage for his entire career (Alex Smith) then a great coach (Harbaugh) comes along and the guy is among the league's best.
Randy Moss on the Raiders is putrid; he comes to New England and breaks records. A flower thrives in pure sunlight and dies in darkness... hypothetically if Brady's career ended in 2008 with that knee injury and Cassel was the starter from that point forward, his career would have been drastically different and we would likely be here discussing how great this guy is and how amazing Belichick is for finding a QB who didn't start a single college game.
Would he be as amazing as Brady has been, probably not, but with a better team around him like we should have this year he could probably win a Super Bowl ring just like Brady should this year.
We give QB's too much credit, coaching is everything in football. You need great talent but a great coach finds great talent.
I love that you used that analogy for football players!
I think on the next draft thread, we should ask Belichick:
Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
I guess the pretty maids all in a row would be the offensive line?
