Ok Patriots fans, let’s shake off the shock of Jimmy Garoppolo being dealt to the San Fransisco 49ers and focus on the fact that Tom Brady is now the team’s quarterback of the future.
Tom has been adamant that he has no plans of retiring anytime soon and with this trade it appears that the Patriots are finally taking his word for it. I guess there’s no need for a stud backup QB like Jimmy Garoppolo when Tom Brady continues to age like a fine wine.
It’s hard to pinpoint why the Patriots finally decided to pull the trigger on a Jimmy G deal when there were better trades to be had in the offseason (the Browns were literally willing to sell their entire franchise for Jimmy).
Perhaps Brady’s elite play this season convinced the team that Tom is in fact genetically superior to the modern human or maybe Bill took some time to read Tom’s new book and realized that the pliable Brady truly is impervious to injury.
Whatever the reasoning behind the trade is, let’s just be thankful that Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. (Infinitely knocks on wood).
