    But the Pats are in a great spot. TB says 3-5 more, sources say win another SB or play 3, then retire. So JG must go. Pats have the aura of a 2 in 3 year SB winner, his brief but very good play, and a weak year in QB's in the draft. The more the better.
    I don't get the comparison between a rookie and a seasoned vet here. Compare Jimmy G to someone who has been in the league a few years... like Bortles.

    How about any team with the draft capital to deal for JG is also thinking about drafting a QB. Goff was the most recent "anointed one" draft pick, no? Therefore it seems quite apt to compare them. I didn't say anyone couldn't be compared to JG did I?

    Seymour, Law, Woody, Adam V, Samuel, Ted Washington, Dan Graham, Chad Eaton, Woodhead, and Deion Branch - all had at least two years after the Pats that matched at least one of the top 3 seasons they had for NE.

    It took me 5 minutes and 7 rosters to come up with that list. Long term all should have been walked away from and were. BB doesn't believe in sentiment with a strict cap - one of his major advantages over most GM's.

    I'd say somewhere in between. Maybe like a matt schaub. Good qb but not elite.

    Are you admitting to being a socket puppet of OREcoast?

    Jimmy Garoppolo's agent, Donald Yee, represents Saints coach Sean Payton, with whom Bears GM Ryan Pace worked for ten years in New Orleans.
    There are all kinds of connections to be made like this around the NFL, but Pace's connections to Garoppolo especially stand out. Payton and Pace's Saints were rumored to be infatuated with Garoppolo in the 2014 draft and allegedly considered taking him toward the end of the first round. Payton, Pace, and Garoppolo are all alums of Eastern Illinois. Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "Yee knows well just how much Payton and Pace valued Garoppolo in the (2014) draft," and "putting a deal together between those two wouldn’t be difficult."

    I think Jimmy is closer to Aaron Rodgers. no backup like Cassel, Flynn, or Foles showed an inch of the talent Jimmy did before injury. those 3 were easy to tell weren't franchise QBs. Jimmy very much is to me and is the first backup I can say that about that I can remember

    He will be just as good as Cousins or around there IMO. The guy is legit from the eye test and his demeanor tells me he can handle the nfl game.

    I've read two posts you made today and both of them I felt embarrassed for you.

    Putting it all on, "he's on the Patriots so he won't be good when he leaves" is weak as ****. Basically saying you know nothing about him and are talking out of your ***.
    Ya but just saying "he's great at everything and has no weakness" is weak as **** too. If that's the case then he has to be an all time great and near perfect qb and trading him would be dumb. It's nonsense to make statements like thag

    Well saying a guy "has no weakness" isn't the same as saying he's perfect at everything. When I see Jimmy G play I don't see any alarms for things he can't do. He moves well, accurate, strong arm, quick reads, etc. I can't pinpoint one thing as a red flag or area he can be exploited. It's just a matter of exactly how good is he at those things.
