    Replacing Brady.

    It won't be as easy as some think, (despite the unparralelled brilliance of BB the GM).

    According to Bill O'Brien: “The one thing for us in Houston, especially like myself and (quarterback coach) George Godsey, we have to guard against looking for the next Tom Brady,”€ he said. “Those guys are few and far between. You think about how many Hall of Fame quarterbacks there are, and he’€™s going to be one, there just aren’€™t that many of them in the whole spectrum of quarterbacks in the history of this league, as you know. I think what we’€™re looking for is a guy that has some of Tom’€™s qualities: like a great teammate, an accountable guy, a hard-working guy, a competitive guy, a good leader. But to go out there and say, ‘€˜This guy is going to be like Tom Brady.’€™ I mean, that’€™s ridiculous.”

     

    Hey, maybe we could get Rusty's hero Alex Smith.

    Obviously Mallett is going to be the next one, Babe.  Dur.

    Re: Replacing Brady.

    Of course it won't be easy, but Walsh did it or at least made it look easy with Young.

    It can be done and no coach or GM has a better chance to supplant a HOF QB more than BB in this league. I am sure he will be up to that challenge, and it's probably the main thing that will keep him around past Brady's tenure here.

    If Brady continues to look distant in Januarys, I will be looking forward to his replacement.

    The pain of watching him waste opportunities and the team wondering just who took Brady away, has been just beyond disappointing at this point. It was bad enough in 2007.

    Re: Replacing Brady.

    I think this is going to be less of a challenge than many think.  It should be very interesting to see happen.  In the meantime, I'll sit back and enjoy watching TB do his thing for however long he has left.

    Ya, bb has done such a wonderful job drafting QB's since Tom and worked wonders with the ones he had prior. 

    I'm sure he has one just waiting in the weeds.

    The pain you witnessed was TB sitting down in the final moments of the games with the lead, only to watch the D flush it down the toilet.

    You would think with all that crap on the field, that potty wouldn't flush.  Unfortunately, someone gave eli a plunger and there it went, directly to the sewer.

    Thanks a f'n lot bb!

    Nope.

    BB aint' going anywhere. It's in his blood.  Brady, meanwhile is more interested in hairstyling and playing dress up while dancing terribly in Brazil.

    It's been mortifying in recent years at times, dude.  It's ok to admit it.

     

     

    Bostonians do not like their athletes to be so California or whatever this is.

    Face it, Brady changed in 2007 and it's been all downhill since.  Pats fans who live outside NE, have to fend off the jokes and whatnot.  It's brutal.

    From what I have seen off BB, I would be shocked if he chose to retire when TB does.  It seems to me, that would be totally contrary to his type of personality.  I don't see him leaving the game until he makes it clear that he is responsible for his own success.  To do that, he will have to take this team to the promised land, at least once, without TB.

    BB is what 62? I don't see him retiring in a few years when Brady does. He wouldn't know what to do with himself unless he went to Navy or something like that.

    I just don't see it.

    Brady will move to LA and get into fashion design and then run for office.

    I don't know, or care, what TB will do when he retires.  However, I totally agree with you concerning BB.  I believe his head would explode, if he couldn't keep doing his job.  If he retires before the age of 75, I'll be surprised.

    You're a moron.

    Leave the NE area for 1 millisecond, dummy, walk into a sports bar and ask what people think of Brady in the postseason the last 7 or so years and don't walk away if you don't like what you hear. Sit and listen.

    He's old news and it's all his doing.

    His selfish, selfish me-me-me attitude to chase Manning's stats to get the media talking about Brady in the same breath as Manning, statistcally, at the cost of SBs to this franchise.

    He said he didn't see himself into his 70s, which I think is a realistic timetable.  I think 5-7 more years, Brady or no Brady.

    People seem to think BB's ego is tied to Brady's, and I simply disagree.  If anything, BB will want to show it wasn't just Brady that makes this engine go here in NE.

    I remember being asked when Pioli left if I felt it would be a huge blow. I said it's a loss, as was Weis and Crennel, but in no way will it derail the whole thing. And, I was right.

    This organization is about the Kraft's commitment and BB.  It's the truth. And, that's fully realizing how great Brady has been overall as a future HOF QB.

    Kraft commits, BB implements the ideology and the rest falls where it falls, but it's really all BB with Kraft not meddling.

    Re: Replacing Brady.

    While the draft likely changes things if the season started today, two other teams, in Minny and Cleveland would have starting QB's found and developed by the Pats.

    Not suggesting Cassel or Hoyer will lead anyone to a SB but they were also found in the 7th rd and undrafted respectively. So even when the Pats weren't particularly trying or needing to find a QB they found a couple who sit atop other teams' depth charts.

    Not expecting the next one to be another Brady but I think when they need to find a good one they will.

    Yep. I also feel if Cassel had stayed here, he'd have had a Pro Bowl season year after year like he did in 2010 with KC with Weis.

    Stability is absolutely enormous with a QB. Hoyer, Cassel, etc, even Alex Smith, had new OCs literally every year.

    There isn't going to be any replacing Brady.  He's the best QB in Patriots history no contest or comparison, and he's in the conversation for best QB of all time.  So a conversation/speculation about who will be replacing him is madness.  What we need to talk about, is who is our next QB.  And we need to have some realistic expectations about it and not do any comparing. 

    I'm not sure Mallet is the answer, he reminds me very much of a more mobile yet less accurate Drew Bledsoe.  However he has done very little to impress during his preseason games.

    You live outside Dallas? No wonder why you're so angry. lmao

    Dallas sucks.  Strip malls, chains, now downtown scene, etc. Weather just blows, etc. That explains everything outside of you being a miserable middle aged man all angry at his life in general.

    Of course Cowboys fans are enraged about Romo and would love Brady, but they'd rather have BB as their GM and head coach as opposed to Jerry Jones as GM and whoever he picks as coach. That's a fact.

    It starts there, cupcake.

    PS Dallas has featured one of the worst Ds in the NFL in recent years. NE's D blows away anything Dallas has fielded in in the last couple of years.

    I'll never forget NE's D dominating Dallas in 2011 waiting on Brady to absolve his awful multiple INT game, too. I believe he had 3 that day trying to lose the game, throwing 45+ times.

    You just can't get out of your own way, can you Pezzy?

    There isn't going to be any replacing Brady.  He's the best QB in Patriots history no contest or comparison, and he's in the conversation for best QB of all time.  So a conversation/speculation about who will be replacing him is madness.  What we need to talk about, is who is our next QB.  And we need to have some realistic expectations about it and not do any comparing. 

    I'm not sure Mallet is the answer, he reminds me very much of a more mobile yet less accurate Drew Bledsoe.  However he has done very little to impress during his preseason games.

    NO one is talking about replacing Brady in that way. The premise is about how long Brady has,  how they might go about developing a replacement, etc.  We all know he cannot be replaced pound for pound.

    As for Mallett, people said the exact same thing about Cassel as you just said about Mallett.

    Montana is the best 49ers QB ever, arguably the best ever but Steve Young was quite good.

    It's not impossible to avoid a huge drop off.

    It won't be as easy as some think, (despite the unparralelled brilliance of BB the GM).

    According to Bill O'Brien: “The one thing for us in Houston, especially like myself and (quarterback coach) George Godsey, we have to guard against looking for the next Tom Brady,”€ he said. “Those guys are few and far between. You think about how many Hall of Fame quarterbacks there are, and he’€™s going to be one, there just aren’€™t that many of them in the whole spectrum of quarterbacks in the history of this league, as you know. I think what we’€™re looking for is a guy that has some of Tom’€™s qualities: like a great teammate, an accountable guy, a hard-working guy, a competitive guy, a good leader. But to go out there and say, ‘€˜This guy is going to be like Tom Brady.’€™ I mean, that’€™s ridiculous.”

     

    Hey, maybe we could get Rusty's hero Alex Smith.

    Textbook tampering.

    I realize that TB is not a FA, but this is akin to saying "We want Tom Brady" without coming right out and saying so.

    I expect Goodell to step in any minute and render a swift, punishing blow.  Seems fair to me to award Houston's #1 pick to NE.

    I am jealous that Pats fans walk out of a sports bar after Brady throws 3 or 4 INTs or throws games away with the jubilation from other fans being heard for miles away?

    If THIS:

    asked me to dance like this:

    I think I probably would say yes.

    Apparently Rusty Trombone would decline.

    Of course it won't be easy, but Walsh did it or at least made it look easy with Young.

    It can be done and no coach or GM has a better chance to supplant a HOF QB more than BB in this league. I am sure he will be up to that challenge, and it's probably the main thing that will keep him around past Brady's tenure here.

    If Brady continues to look distant in Januarys, I will be looking forward to his replacement.

    The pain of watching him waste opportunities and the team wondering just who took Brady away, has been just beyond disappointing at this point. It was bad enough in 2007.

    IMO BB & Brady are leaving together... Just go out together. McDaniels will take over 

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Nope.

    BB aint' going anywhere. It's in his blood.  Brady, meanwhile is more interested in hairstyling and playing dress up while dancing terribly in Brazil.

    It's been mortifying in recent years at times, dude.  It's ok to admit it.

     

     

    Bostonians do not like their athletes to be so California or whatever this is.

    Face it, Brady changed in 2007 and it's been all downhill since.  Pats fans who live outside NE, have to fend off the jokes and whatnot.  It's brutal.

    Bostonians love TB.  Apparently, carolina trolls don't.  Pure jealousy.

    You're a moron.

    Leave the NE area for 1 millisecond, dummy, walk into a sports bar and ask what people think of Brady in the postseason the last 7 or so years and don't walk away if you don't like what you hear. Sit and listen.

    He's old news and it's all his doing.

    His selfish, selfish me-me-me attitude to chase Manning's stats to get the media talking about Brady in the same breath as Manning, statistcally, at the cost of SBs to this franchise.

    I live outside of Dallas and everyone I speak to would die to have TB.  Fact!

    You are the only schl@ng too stupid to realize what the Pats (not you) have.

    They all think the D stinks,though.  Rightfully so.

    Get over it.  TB killed your Panthers.  BB loves TB! Even he knows they aren't winning a thing with that bottom feeder D.  Bout time he fixes it.  Sucks to be you.

    [/QUOTE]

    You live outside Dallas? No wonder why you're so angry. lmao

    Dallas sucks.  Strip malls, chains, now downtown scene, etc. Weather just blows, etc. That explains everything outside of you being a miserable middle aged man all angry at his life in general.

    Of course Cowboys fans are enraged about Romo and would love Brady, but they'd rather have BB as their GM and head coach as opposed to Jerry Jones as GM and whoever he picks as coach. That's a fact.

    It starts there, cupcake.

    PS Dallas has featured one of the worst Ds in the NFL in recent years. NE's D blows away anything Dallas has fielded in in the last couple of years.

    I'll never forget NE's D dominating Dallas in 2011 waiting on Brady to absolve his awful multiple INT game, too. I believe he had 3 that day trying to lose the game, throwing 45+ times.

    You just can't get out of your own way, can you Pezzy?

    Plenty going on in Dallas.

    SB's, final 4's, outdoor concerts galore, jobs, opportunity, museums, art, multiple sports teams...  Golf, car and horse racing.  PLENTY TO DO!  You know NOTHING, as usual.

    I hate the cowboys but was there when Brady kicked their butts in 07.

      One of the best games, eva for one of the best QB's EVA!

    And yes, their D has sucked with multiple Dc's.  Must be a sucky GM, thing.

    He had a ton of garbage to say about South Florida as well.  But, then again, he lives in North Carolina.  What on Earth is in North Carolina other than "South of the Border" billboards?  (You never sausage a place!)

    You're in Dallas.  I'm outside of Miami.  Our locations suck because there are strip malls around.
