Tom Brady's draft report.


Everyone chill. Let's see how this thing works out. Sad thing is there will be Giants fans hoping Jones will fail just so they can say "told you so".
Can we not compare Tom Freaking

Brady to Daniel Jones? Like come on.

Wasnít Brady picked in the 7th round? Not 6 overall?
I watched his UNC tape last night

It was... disheartening. He has traits for sure, but I can't see the accuracy you want to see to take a guy this high. I wanted to explain it all on drops and protection but that's not what I saw.
One of the biggest anomalies

In the history of the sport.

Just have to hope lightning will strike again.
I was kind of surprised that they went Offense ....  
short lease : 4/26/2019 7:30 am : link
But, if they went offense and were going to take a QB ... this is the guy I wanted - by far.

How many times did we hear this week - "if you love a guy - you take him no matter what round ... or what pick"? ... the professionals loooved him. The armchairs don't ... yet.

I'll play - Jonny "fucking" Unitas. drafted by Pittsburg in the 9th round and then cut by the Steelers.

RG3 .... - is he even in the league now?

I wish I had a crystal ball like everyone else seems to have but, I would go right to the tab that said "lottery winnings" 6/1/2019.
I was as shocked as anyone hearing our first pick.

A lot of the drops are because of ball placement and a tendency to flutter the ball. He doesn't throw a particularly tight spiral, and often hits the receiver's back hip on crossing routes, now being kind that may be due to inconsistent route running by the receivers but it's noticeable as is the tendency for the ball to go high on occasion more often than you like.

I also think his constant patting of the ball is going to be a problem.

Do me a favor, go back and rewatch some of the stinkers Eli has put up over the past 15 years.

Maybe you ll see the unfairness of judging a quarterback by his poor performances.
Could have been about our #1 pick

Let's not have Eli as the standard of QB play.
I think the point is no one knows shit about how this will turn out  
map7711 : 4/26/2019 7:55 am : link
No one. No one on BBI. None of the draft ďexpertsĒ. Not even DG. This kid could be a hall of gamer or a bust. Any everything in between. If anyone actually knew, every NFL team would bring you a bag of cash and Jennifer Lawrence to your doorstep every morning just to say good morning.

Not really. It's Belichick. Even if Brady didn't have a supermodel wife who makes more than him he wouldn't leave Belichick for more money.

Hw won 11 games with Matt Cassell. His systems work with almost anybody they put in at QB.

I'm not sure what one has to do with the other? And look, Eli isn't an NFL positional standard-bearer. If we have another Eli, I'll be disappointed. We won 2 Super Bowls, yes, but we weren't a perennial play-off contender that a truly elite QB makes you.

ANd sometimes it does. Sometiems the fans are right. And eventually why do some GM's get fired?
Not that I expect razor-sharp wit from someone like you

Bottom line is its time for Pat Shurmur to earn that rep
