Who else would love to see Brady play elsewhere???

Recommended Posts

Lions is a good ideal Ray. 

Don’t forget who the Lions coach is.

Yes, former pats DC and assistant coach.

but benching a guy like Matt Stafford when hes still in his prime (32 years old) likely isnt a move any smart GM will allow to happen.   even if its for a 43 year old Tom Brady.

I could see denver doing it though.  and they have a young TE who is coming into his own.

Zero chance of Denver benching Drew Lock, with whom they went 4-1 to end the season, including a win over Houston (losing only to the Chiefs) in favor of a has-been QB trying to milk another year or two out of his career.

Zero.

Lions have a good te also.  

Maybe, but based on it’s Brady they might.  

Like the poster above said, hard to see the Broncos bring in a 43 year old Qb, I think they well roll with Lock. 

As for me, I think it’s either the Chargers who do have a good te, or Panthers  who have Mccaffery , speaking of Brady.

Lions aren't an option.  Stafford has too much money left on his contract.  The dead money is something like $60M.

Yeap maybe they aren’t a option, but I still think it could be a good move.

Might be able to find a trade partner?  Though, the return will probably be lower than normal because the buyers know you need to unload him.

Well if the lions do want him, I’m sure they’ll figure it out.  

But I’m thinking Panthers or Chargers.

Panthers is definitely possible.  Not so sure about the Chargers.

Chargers need a QB, but if you are brady, do you go to a team that has an O line that is subpar?   

Dude will be 43 before this season begins.   he cant take too many hits.  If I were in his position this would be a large factor in deciding whether to sign somewhere else.

It seems the prevailing sentiment is that Brady needs weapons.  

That doesn't add up to me.  Brady is widely considered the greatest quarterback of all time.  If that's the case, he should be elevating his wife receivers, and not begging for wide receivers to elevate him.

You can't have it both ways.  He's either the GOAT or he needs pro bowlers to be effective.

EVERY QB needs weapons.

that's a pretty shallow take. 

a QB can't run the route or catch the ball for anyone. football is a game of matchups.  if a WR can't gain separation, can't read zones, or can't come down with 50/50 balls, nothing any QB does is going to matter.

The Tebow lovers said he needed weapons when he had prime Demaryious Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Julian Thomas.  Peyton Manning showed up the following year and threw 55 TDs.

My point is that there's no such thing as part time greatest.  You either elevate your squad or you don't.  Any QB in the league can throw to open guys and guys who will come down with contested catches.  If you're supposedly the GOAT, make them look better than they are.

Carson Wentz was putting up numbers last year with guys they found on the street.

That was the GOAT season I've ever seen from a 42 yr old QB. Has there been a better one I missed?

My post wasn’t a reply to your post about Brady’s age.  

Opps hold on here, where in that post did I say Manning was 42 years old.  

Now let’s dummy up a little and not be so vain, first of all look up to the last post that the poster known as nobody made, about P Manning taking over for Tebow and coming in the very next season and tossing 55 tds.  

I was just setting the facts straight, he posted 37 his first year with the Broncos , 55tds was his second. 

Now im sure you forgot that P Manning played for the Broncos. 

Now that was a reply to your post mr jrokh. Lol. 

Always a pleasure to watch you defend your post.  Lol

well, he threw for over 4000 yards with a group of wr many consider to be subpar.   he didnt do THAT badly.

someone earlier said:

and fair enough.  so was Phil rivers for a time.

these are guys you look at and you think Perhaps if they had some talent to work with, or a halfway decent O line, these guys could have been great. 

for Wentz there is still time to turn this around.   Rivers..... I guess it depends where he lands.....

Rodgers and Brady and Rivers all avg 20 points per game in ff last season.  

I think Brady is doing just fine.  

Thanks.

Thanks. 

he is.   people are just angry that he's not putting up the  same numbers he did a few years ago.

the reality is... I dont know that anyone can expect someone to put up those numbers consistently over a career.

There are always ups and downs.   and being a good QB is different than being a good fantasy QB.

At the end of the day, the Pats had a successful season.   but they've been so good for so long, people see this and wanna Pick at something.  Most teams would love to have the kind of season that Brady and the Pats had.   If this is a down Year, why not hang on to see if you can get another good year?

While I agree, hes on the downside, my biggest worry is  that at his age, he could have a really nasty injury to finish his career.   I Personally dont wanna see it end that way.  Nor do I wanna see the wheels fall off halfway through the year.  I'd like to see him go out on  his own terms.

If Brady resigns to play another season, that would indeed me on his own terms.  

He diffently doesn’t need the money.

I've always said that Rivers is as good a QB as Brady-wouldn't it be interesting and telling if Brady signed with Chargers and Rivers with NE?

And even better, if Brady goes to the Chargers and wins another super bowl.
