Mahomes is a 21yr old qb with tons of potential, you can't label him yet. Also, agree to disagree on arm strength. No way I side with Jimmy G's arm.
Their probably willing to trade Garoppolo because Brady will play at least two or three more years as the level he's at now and Jimmy expires after next season.
calculated risk by Belichick? Or, I'm going to laugh my ass off if he drafts Mahomes with the pick he gets for Jimmy G.
Also, just because Belichick doesn't lose trades doesn't mean the other team can also win in the trade. I don't think the Browns lost by trading a third rounder for Jamie Collins, one of the best defenders in the NFL. I don't think the Cardinals lost by trading a bust in Cooper and a 2nd for chandler jones, one of the best defenders in the NFL.
IMO those trades are different for two reasons, 1: none of those positions were QB, and 2: Belichick Tried to resign all of those players, to which he ended up trading because they asked for more money than they were willing to pay. Patriots haven't tried to resign Jimmy G, they're straight dumping him. Red flag in my eyes.
I don't think Belichick being willing to trade Garoppolo means that he doesn't think he's a franchise QB. He's probably just not willing to miss out on getting valuable picks for a guy who isn't going to resign with the Patriots because he's going to get an 80mil offer and Belichick isn't going to give that to a back up
You might be right but Bill has always done things with a 'team first' approach.... Bill spent a 2nd on Garoppolo for a reason, he's next in line, Brady is 40 years old, 'team first' doesn't say trade Garoppolo leaving your team with no QB to turn to after next season when 41 year old Brady retires.
