What are the Patriots going to do at quarterback now that Tom Brady is going to the Buccaneers? (LINK)

What do you guys think about Brady playing somewhere other than New England?

Here are some notable NFL moves:

  • Chiefs (and former Michigan) QB Chad Henne re-signed with K.C. for two years to be the backup to Pat Mahomes.
  • Former Packers OT Bryan Bulaga is signing with the Chargers.
  • Former Patriots/Browns LB Jamie Collins is signing with the Lions.
  • Former Bears QB Chase Daniel is signing with the Lions to be Matt Stafford’s backup.
  • Former Colts QB Philip Rivers is signing with the Colts.
  • Former Chargers FB Derek Watt is going to the Steelers. This is only noteworthy to me because he’ll be on the same team as his brother, T.J. Watt, which is pretty cool.
  • Former Vikings CB Trae Waynes is headed to the Bengals.
  • Former Cowboys TE Jason Witten is signing with the Raiders.

NOTE: A lot of people aren’t working, so I’m temporarily suspending the NSFW rules.

    Well it will be interesting to see what success either of these 2 – Belichick & Brady have without the other. Many qb’s have moved on to other teams and enjoyed success and many HC’s have been successful with more than one qb.

    I will point out that Belichick wasn’t originally hired by Parcells as Belichick was already on staff whern Parcells was hired by the Giants. Belichick being hired by Perkins whom Parcells replaced. Parcells then went on to win a couple of Super Bowls with Belichick but how many Super Bowls did Parcells later win, after they had parted, without Belichick? ……..and oh how many Super Bowls did Belichick then go on to win without Parcells? Food for thought as I’ve always been of the opinion that Parcells success was due to Belichick.
    Maybe something similar occurs re Brady & Belichick, only time will tell. Of course Belichick has the ability to continue on as an HC far longer than what Brady will be able to continue as a qb.

    Would be entertaining if Brady’s new team (Bucs?) plays the Pats in the next Super Bowl. wouldn’t it? intjohn

      I could be wrong, but I basically think both parties are done. At least when it comes to winning Super Bowls. I think New England has fallen off from a talent standpoint, and I don’t know if they can “rebuild” quickly enough for Belichick, who’s getting up there in age (67).

      Brady has about two years left, and I don’t think Tampa Bay is there. I’m also not sure how well Arians will adjust to Brady, even though Arians is a QB whisperer. Arians loves to throw the ball downfield, and that may not be the best aspect of Brady’s game at this point.

      But yeah, it would definitely make a good story to have a TB vs. NE Super Bowl next year.

    One can argue that talent has always been “down’ at NE cause well, they’re always finishing so high in the standings that Belichick only gets to draft the ‘leftovers” as NE never gets the top pick like , for example, the Det Lions – how many No 1 & first round picks in like forever and yet they always suck?

    Sorta all the more case for Belichick’s “genius”, I guess. the guy does know how to “Build A Team” as well as motivate it while seemingly never having the ability to draft the greatest of ‘talent’………

    Belichick knew along time ago that sooner or later Brady’s career would come to an end – either thru injury or longevity- and I’mathinkin he’s been prepared for awhile……..

    True “genius” is not just simply having a great plan but also having a great back up plan……….intjohn
