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.

Ranking Michigan’s Quarterbacks

This was originally posted on March 17, 2017. It has been updated following the 2019 season.

Sports fans love to debate the greatness of players and rank them in order from most revered to most despised. And while despised probably doesn’t fit any of these players, since they played for the University of Michigan, we all have our favorites. I have endeavored to achieve the un-possible: Rank all of Michigan’s starting quarterbacks.

Okay, that’s too tall of a task for me right now. I’m working up to it. So I’m only going back to 1995, which was the beginning of the Lloyd Carr era. That’s the earliest full coaching tenure where I can count on my recollections of Michigan football. I was a big fan of Bo Schembechler, Gary Moeller, and the Michigan Wolverines before then, but I’ll be damned if I say I was aware enough to understand what was happening on the field.

This ranking only takes into account what the quarterbacks achieved wearing the winged helmet. High school highlight tapes and NFL performance aren’t taken into account. (After all, we can agree that Tom Brady is far and away the best quarterback who ever played the game of football, and that includes Uncle Rico.)

So if you were starting a season with your pick of any Michigan QB since 1995, which one would you take?

On with the show:
