    When do they look for a TB replacement

    I know we're talking about years out but when is the right time to find that next guy who can lead us to greatness? Believe me this is a hard post to type but we have to face the facts. 
    He's not going to be in there forever and I would think you'd need at least 2-3 years overlap for some kid to soak up all he can off TB. Now, based on that and how long you think TB has left when is the right time to start looking?

    Is it the Oakland pick next year?

    I doubt we will invest a high 1st round on a QB in the near future. I think BB would like to see how well Hoyer developes and maybe bring in a few players via late draft choices and undrafted rookie. Hoyer seems fairly solid.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    Brady was in the 6th round, Cassel in the 7th, Hoyer was undrafted. I think the Pats like to develop their QBs, but Hoyer is not Brady's replacement. Hoyer is 25. Brady has about 5 more elite years in him. That would make Hoyer 30 when he replaces Brady.

    Hoyer right now from the Looks of it, Cassell last year and possibly someone else 2 or 3 years down the road. The Pats seem to like to develope guys that nobody else really wants. Let's hope they get lucky when the time comes.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    After watching Cassell last year how and why in the world could you or would you want him as our QB. Seriously do you guys watch football? He was terrible here and even worse in KC. So what he had 3-4 good games , he couldnt complete a pass beyond 11 yards and still cant LOL. He was benched for a steak n cheese sub and a grape soda. LOL. And seriously what is the point of even having this thread , this is why I always ranking on most of you morons. W/out injury , which you can never be prepared for anyway , he has 5/7 more years left. This no point in trying to develop someone now unless your doing so for trade bait.

    Hoyer seems fairly solid. I am ok with that statement. I am not ok with what you're insinuating, Hoyer as the ptential starter for this team when Brady retires. Hoyer is not the answer at QB. Nor do I want him as the starter.

    I don't know the reason for the animosity towards Hoyer. No one knew Brady, a 6th round pick, and look how it turned out to be. Same with Cassel. Why can't Hoyer be a starter?

    I'd say Brady has about 4 good years left so draft replacement in 2 years.

    I would start looking for his backup in about 3 years. I think he'll have a long NFL career and you want the replacement to train with the best.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    In three years, Brady will be 35. I say that's the best time to draft a replacement QB with a strong arm (preferably in the later rounds of the draft). Give him three years to learn under Brady and refine any technique/accuracy issues that the replacement may have, and you have yourself a new franchise QB. If your lucky, Brady may even return as quarterbacks coach after he retires, so the replacement may have Brady as his mentor for his entire career.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    It seems logical that the draft picks on QBs keep getting more frequent and higher...they burned a 3rd last year.  Wake me up when they spend a 1st rd... which means a sudden demise and the cupboard is bare.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    TWO qestions:

    1)  Who is his current replacement in an injury situation?

    2)  Who will be his permanent replacement--drafted or traded for in a few years.

    I say draft a 21 year old guy with great upside in 2-3 years or at the first best opportunity and get a vet right now as his backup, unless this is a semi-rebuilding year and then i guess Hoyer is the man.

    1.) Kevin O'Connell. . .  lol?
    2.) Hoyer looked really good for and undrafted rookie

    Whoever he is I feel bad for him already because he will never be good enough to replace Brady.

    time to start looking and get the development process going, i give TB four more years, i can't see him doing a Favre till he's 40.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    TB has said in a number of occasions even after his knee injury that he believes he can play until 40.  He's such a competitor that he probably will need to be told to stop playing. 

    If the line protects him he can pick ds apart for years still.  I don't think the team will need to guess on what brady is thinking, he'll let them know that he's probably two years from retirement when ever that is.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    I look at it like this... Patriots will sign him to a 5 or 6 year deal and that means they look to draft his replacement no earlier then 2012 more likely 2013 and that gives him a couple years to season under Brady.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    Never...He is an ironman and will break Favre's record for oldest starting QB....J/K...I would agree that in 2-3yrs, but I will admit.  I like Hoyer.  At least from what I have seen of him.

    Digger didnt we say the same thing about Vinatieri then Ghost came along.  Havent missed V since then.  He was a great and will always be appreciated, but I have not missed him.

    Gostkowski was a nice find, Adam who? So, you are right as usual Mordecai, never say never.

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    One thing you can't teach is leadership. A QB has to be a natural born leader.....Belichick has gone on record over the past few years saying he loves Tebow. He is also close with Urban Meyer....Tim Tebow is a natural born leader. His mechanics need to be tweaked. So did Brady's when he walked through the Foxboro doors back in 2000.....This seems to me like it'd be a nice fit. Tim will learn & be respectful. Not to mention he gives us a hell of a lot more options on 3rd/4th & 1. We all know Bill likes to go for it. & i'd rather not see Brady takes those hits on sneaks......Take Tebow late 2nd round-3rd round if he's there. Groom him. QB of the future. He has all the intangibles......

    Re: When do they look for a TB replacement

    I'll just go with the flow, a couple of years ago I would have said O'Connell, now I say Hoyer.  And when the Pats draft another QB in the later Rds, I say that guy's name.
