I've always said Romo is a quality back-up QB. When I heard the possibility of him landing in Denver, .

We've obviously learned this year how important a quality backup QB is

Dude, heck no. We've talked about this. Every single "backup" in NE was a result of the SYSTEM. I would not get killed playing behind that O-line.

How else is it that every backup that left NE becomes elsewhere?

It would allow your team to not suck until the post-season

Lets look at these backups you speak of

Jimmy G - 1 Start
Jacoby Brissett - 1 Start
Ryan Mallett - 0 Starts
Brian Hoyer - 0 Starts
Matt Cassel - Played 2008 when Brady got hurt, missed the playoffs

Literally none of them have accomplished anything in a Pats uni. Where are you getting the idea that the Pats have all these "system" QBs. None of them have ever played

Romo's will happen when he chokes in the playoffs as opposed to Cutler's happening during the regular season?

Who would want a 37 (?) year old QB with a long injury history?

Denver, Houston, NYJets, possible Buffalo if they can't keep Talyor, Ceveland, 49ers, Bears.

And he he doesn't really have a long history, it's just been a collarbone and disk.

Rumors that Foles isn't staying in KC. Hopefully he goes to SF, as a stopgap

And besides, Bears are cursed and inept enough to LOSE without Romowned joining. There is no level too deep this organization can sink. Except past the Browns.

But, if you start digging...on your way to JYNA, you'll see Chicago and then Cleveland.

Fins to cut starting left tackle Brandon Albert. Huge cap savings and they already have their former first rounder ready to shift from left guard.

AP to Greenbay? Highly unlikely but wouldn't that be something to have both threats again...

That Revis article was puzzling. It basically said, "in spite of two victims with face injuries and eye witness accounts it may be difficult to prove Revis actually hit them"....

Smells like suspension......

I believe they're saying there's no video of the incident, given that the guys who were hit were supposedly filming him, I find that hard to believe

And if the Giants two go the other way he has 7. Also to be fair, two of those games are from the same year and the game was tied during both those FG attempts. Just more fake news from Shitsburg

Haters gonna hate tho

and if you count the Giants catches, Brady is only directly involved in 2 out of 7 of those plays

Brandon Marshall released too. I was surprised about him and AP but I guess both get injured a lot.
