There's a lot more to being an elite quarterback than appearance  ;D

Hence why he wasn't drafted until the 6th round ;D.

So with the SuperBowl done and dusted, attention turns towards the draft - who are the names to be looking out for? Who will the Patriots go for?

To think 198 players were drafted before this guy in 2000 is a mind boggler. Christ, the Pats themselves drafted 6 players before taking Brady. This is when the New England Patriots clearly stepped in shit and the rest is history.
Agreed it is mind boggling

I know it's hindsight but for 198 players to get drafted before the greatest sportsman of all time is ludicrous.

Might go to the Raiders before that...apparently we have been sniffing around. Personally i would prefer a few quality defensive backs.

Plenty of good defensive backs out there this year mate.

You might have a shot at Teez Tabor from Florida.

Adoree Jackson from USC could be an option although mid-20s might be a reach according to some.

You sure did, massive credit to you. In other newa Tony Dungy admits to stealing deffensive signals after Sanders called him and the Colts out on tv.

If the Pats were involved, it would be all over the news for sure

Who thinks the Browns will actually part with the 12th overall pick for Jimmy G? I think that'd be an insane move by the Browns and would further prove how much of a pathetic team they are. The only argument I've seen supporting the idea of that exact trade is that he's won a couple of games when Brady was out ;D.

Lol, would be typical of the Browns to make such a silly trade. Atleast Cassel proved himself over a season all those years back as Brady's backup before he got traded, but it smacks of absolute desperation by the Browns to pick an unproven backup QB just on the basis of him winning a couple of games in Belichick's system. Heck, even their 3rd string QB came in and blew away the Texans the following week after Jimmy G got injured.

She made a comment on Twitter about predicting the Falcons would win when they were battering the Pats. A guy commented saying "if Patriots win we go on a date?" To which she replied "sure" without actually thinking 'what if the Pats come back and win?' :lmao

She stayed true to her word and went on a date with the guy.

If there is one outstanding individual in the game it is Bill Belichick. Call him whatever, but the dude gets the players and coaches them to play in a system and wins rings. If you love Rafa Benitez, you love Belichick.

Interesting times ahead with the free agency and draft coming up. I hope Packers will be a bit unlike themselves this offseason and get help at cornerback and/or pass ruher in free agency. With Shields retiring we can't rely on new draftees / the current guys to be fill that number one corner slot.

Bills re-sign Tyrod Taylor for 5 years (well, 2 years guaranteed, then yearly options).  Makes perfect sense to me - couldn't understand why they were thinking of moving on, given how bad the free agent / draft QB class is.
Bryan Hoyer going to the 49ers to join Kyle Shanahan.
And Tony Romo being released by the Cowboys.
