Take your time to think about it before bashing me.
IF Brady really is out for the season, who do you guys think should take over?

Believe it or not C-Pep is the answer. I'm not sure how his knee is doing but he says its fine. Either way you don't need a mobile QB with that great OL. C-Pep can run the spread offense, with Moss and other playmakers all you need is someone with a big arm who understands the offense.
Remeber what Moss and Culpepper did together? All those records that your team broke last year, they originally had those records.

Culpepper is probably going to get consideration...but he's not even close to the same guy he was before.

I think his mobility is affected.
But the Arm? It's still there. He can still throw 70+ yards IMO.

I would like to see that...sure didn't see it in Miami or Oakland.

He ran well in Oakland. He had two running TDs against the Phins.

Well, wasn't everyone running for TD's against the 2007 Miami Dolphins? No offense.

Not to validate the speculative tone of this post...because until tomorrow no one will know Brady's condition for certain...

...but Daunte is not the answer.

In Oakland last year he was 100% healthy, but was outplayed by a journeyman QB, who eventually won the job. Daunte's shortfalls were accuracy, mobility and decision-making. Granted, Oakland didn't have any receiver on par with Moss, but with Curry and Porter, he did have some serviceable targets, but we still didn't do very well in the passing game.

If you're going to muse about anything, why not "What if Favre had stayed retired until the second week of the season?" Teams would have been crawling all over themselves for his services now, if he had only waited.

After all, it wasn't that long ago that Favre and Moss had chatted about hopefully teaming up some day. Both of them in a Pats uniform would have been something to behold. That last part I'm saying as a football fan, and not necessarily as a Pats, or Favre or Moss fan.

Looks like they aren't even thinking about Daunte. Chris Simms is apparently being brought in tomorrow.

ah well this defintely didnt sound good

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to miss the rest of the 2008 season with a severe injury to his left knee, according to sources cited by Yahoo! Sports and NBC's Peter King.

Brady left Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium after being hit by Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard in the first quarter. Matt Cassel replaced Brady, and the Patriots went on to win the game, 17-10.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said in his postgame press conference that he had no update on Brady's injury, but a source close to Brady told Yahoo! that the quarterback has serious damage to his knee. That could mean a torn ACL and perhaps other ligament and cartilage damage, but there are no details yet available.

"It's bad," a team source told the website. "We're going to have to play without him."

I've said it quite a few times tonight, and I will continue to do so: until he takes the MRI and Belichick pronounces him out for the season, I won't believe any speculation from yahoo or NBC.

Im thinking there is a reason nobody decided Culpepper was worth a roster spot this year....

Actually most of the records that the Patriots broke last season were held by the Colts if Im thinking correctly.

Yeah, the Colts held those records. I'm not sure what that guy was talking about.

I think he was talking about the most points scored in a season which belonged to the 98 vikings.

Oh okay. Good call. Then he was right about one of them.

I have heard Joey Harrington's name as a replacement as well, in addition to Chris Simms.

Kevin O'Connell? I think he deserves a look.

Joey who? That would be the worse. Please don't sign him!

I bet Culpepper wishes he didn't retire last week. I still wouldn't be surprised to see them gauge his interest.

He would be a better option than Chris Simms, IMO. Especially with Moss, Welker & Gaffney as his WR's. They go 3-4 deep at RB too, so they could carry the load on offence once the team gains a lead.

I concur. We have two areas of concern now, and IMO, only two: QB and CB. IMO, I'm probably beating a dead horse at this point, but Ty Law is still available. Yes he's lost a step or two, but he knows this team , the philosophy, the defense, Rodney would love to see him back, Law expressed his interest in coming back, and Coach has sung his praises recently, so he may be a viable option, considering how Sanders played, Law can jump between Safety and Corner.

As far as QB, I'd like to see them bring in a Veteran simply to back up Cassel. The kid has sat behind arguably three great QB's: Palmer, Leinart, and Brady. He knows the offense, has Brady as a mentor (like he's really gonna leave the team and just disappear for the season, regardless), have a guy like Vinny or DC come in to back him up, talk him through pressure situations if need be, and go that route. With Cassel as our QB, and I'm tryingly warming up to that idea, I could see the Pats finish 11-5, take the AFC east, (Jet's finish 10-6 and take WC), and make a serious run at the Super Bowl. It's certainly not guaranteed as it was 48 hours ago, but still contenders with Moss and Welker outside, and one of the deepest rosters at Running Back i've ever seen on this team. Oh, and Bill is still our coach. DON'T EVER COUNT THEM OUT!!!

Situations like this are what makes Belichick great.
