If I were a Pats fan I would probably be questioning why someone who has the reps in pracise and familiarity and can be their backup for one more year is being shipped out for a 5th rounder or less (unless, they really have that little faith in him, which is a warning sign for the Texans).
Or if he wouldn't do a deal with the Pats because he wants to find a place where he can at least compete for a starting position.

Oh from his perspective this works out great. He gets a shot to try and get a multi-year contract with another team and try be the starter, and if that doesn't work out see out the season, pick up the $800,000, and position yourself for the FA market next year where you'll have the pick of the NFL who are interested in a QB.

It is the Pats side, that I'm questioning more than anything.

I agree. It's a trap. If we have to sign him to a long term extension then we are in trouble. The Pats organization isn't dumb. If they are willing to send him off for a 5-7 then that should tell you something.

I only do this if we don't draft any QB's at all. We have a ton of holes to fill, we can't waste 2 picks on QB's.

I much prefer to take our own QB somewhere 3rd-5th rounds.

When Belichick wants to give you something you should step back and check your pockets to make sure your wallet and keys are still there. Probably should look at your watch as well.

For some reason I just feel like this is a big dicking about to happen to the Texans.

No doubt about it. In his one year working with the offense and watching the rookie try to figure out where everything was and learn his playbook I'm sure he learned everything there is to know about Mallet.

Familiar? Yes. Really sure about him? I don't think so. If he'd come from the Patriots directly and coached him for a couple of years I'd feel better. If he'd watched him develop. He's better informed than most (probably more familiar with him than Kubiak was with Schaub) but I don't think he's immunized from getting fleeced by Hoodie.

I don't want Mallett. His name sounds like a misspelled fish. We should cancel this trade.

Our qb coach was on the Pats staff the last three seasons so I'm sure he knows everything that BOB needs to know about Mallet.

Did not know that. Concerns somewhat alleviated.

Thanks for the info!

How cool would it be if we got Mallet and wore his hair in a Mullet?

Yeah. Not cool at all.

They're thinking Brady is going to be the man for another three years. They won't be drafting a QB before the third, if they take one in the third at all. They're most likely looking at guys like Tom Savage, Keith Wenning, maybe a guy like Stephen Morris from Miami.

Well, at least if the Texans don't get Teddy B and suck next year, at least the best college QB isn't a crab-thieving rapist,
