Tom Brady Trade

Recommended Posts

Its True.    The San Francisco 49ers ask the Pats to trade them Tom Brady.   I don't know if it was tongue in cheek....or a negotiating maneuver, but when John Lynch...GM of the 49ers, went to talk to Belichick about a trade, the first thing he asked was if they would Trade Tom Brady to them.  When BB stopped laughing (I assume he began laughing...but you know BB...he may not have taken it as a joke)...they got on to the subject of Jimmy Garrapolo.

Of course, it could be a case of....just like trying to get a date with a supermodel....it don't hurt to ask.    And maybe Lynch put BB on the spot.  All along BB has said that Garrapolo would not be traded....(and don't recall him actually saying the same thing about Brady...not that he would have to explicitly say that).  So...maybe Lynch decided to put BB on the spot:    and say "trade us Brady"...and when BB says "no"...he then asks...'trade us Garrapolo".   

Maybe the foray into asking about trading Brady actually greased things up to the point that BB then had to admit that he had to keep one or the other....and that he finally had to decide what to do about JG:   A. trade him   B. franchise him  C. play him D. Lose him completely with no compensation in return.  So, he finally decided.

And with the ammunition we have... We couldn't pull off that trade...  Whether or not JG is the savior isnt the question.. But.. The Browns would've looked like they were trying...

We don't have a QB to release that the Patriots would want.   Belichick wanted to have Hoyer back to be the back up to Brady.   He doesn't want any one of the 3 headed suck monsters  ( DeShody Koglizer) as his back up QB.

Tom Brady and Drew Bledsoe aren't on the same level.  It was a business decision.  They were not going to pay both next year and they feel comfortable with Brady next year.  Simple as that.

Another good idea why football people are a necessity in your front office..John Lynch is no dummy..Kyle Shanahan may have been Lynch's future HC? but John Lynch also interviewed Josh McDaniels before hiring Shanny..Wouldn't you think some inside scouting was discussed on Jimmy G.? (Please..Payton Manning,,You & Brad Paisley on draft stage announcing your Browns QB Pick..Please)

Do you mean;) Garropolo...not Bledsoe.....or are you in a time warp?

Not sure where you're going.  You aren't "dropping" Tom Brady if you think Garoppolo could take the team next year just because you once cast aside a good but not great QB for a 6th round draft pick.  If Belichick thought Garoppolo was the going to be better than Brady next year and going into the future he would have traded him.  But to say that because Garoppolo was traded is not an indictment on Garoppolo's ability to be a successful NFL QB is misguided.

Depends on what u were offered for brady. Nit sure if brady has a trade veto clause, he prob does.....but if some team came out of their pockets for brady, like if the browns gave their #1 next year, bye tom

I don't think there is a QB in this draft that the Patriots would value over Brady.

I wonder if Belichick is going to ride off into the sunset when Brady hangs them up, so he's not terribly concerned about the future of the Patriots QB position.

He's always struck me as someone who really wouldn't care about setting the Pats up beyond his run.

I think even though we will lose a great (for me the GOAT) QB, I'm intrigued to see a post-Brady era with Bellichick as coach in the Patriots. 

Even Matt Cassel looked great in 2008.

Agree.  I think that is what will happen.  

As for setting the Pats up for the future....I do think that is why Josh McDaniels (who was born about a mile from where I sit)....is being groomed for that.  That is why I think he has not seriously considered any other HC jobs.   (and why....despite some speculation...I doubt that he will come here next year as HC)

There probably is a good possibility, Bill is 65.

lol.... not exactly news there. What was news is that "trying", a/k/a a participation trophy, is now all you are looking for.

It's hard to look beyond the record, see the progress and the promise of more to come. Kinda like those images popular in the 90's where a 3D image is buried a layer deep in what on the surface appears to be a pattern of colors.

Be careful... he bites.

Then it was a brilliant opening to a negotiation.

 

I can't help but wonder whether Hoyer's subsequent release wasn't part of the deal so NE did not end up with his SF contract. Pretty sure that would violate a league rule...

What!!  The Patriots being involved in violating league rules.    Why...How Dare you suggest that such a thing could ever happen.   Where on Earth do you acquire any suspicion that the Patriots may be involved in cheating?
