I know this was thrown out there earlier this week, but I've again been told Mallett is unlikely to play tomorrow. It's the Garoppolo show.

If Belichick is at the point of cutting him, surely OB would spend next year's 5th on him... or our 5th & 6th, or whatever it will take to make sure we get him.

But if OB is willing to let some other team grab him, that tells me he doesn't think very much of a Ryan Mallett. St. Louis needs a QB. They may be willing to give NE a 4th, or even a 3rd... but it doesn't look like O'Brien is worried about not getting Mallett.

If O'Brien thought anything of Ryan Mallett why would he risk it? If he's willing to start the season with Fitzpatrick to call his bluff... the. He's not seeing the upside many think might be there.

The question is about the RELATIVE value of Ryan Mallett.

Does Ryan Mallett rate as a good QB in the Rams', Browns', or Bills' offenses? Does he fit with them?

The reason he appears to have heightened value for us is because he's already in a variation our offensive system with very similar concepts and verbiage.

He's not going to fit with the Browns. He's not a fit for Kyle Shanahan's system and he doesn't know it.

So it's down to whether he fits with the Rams or the Bills as to whether they're whether to give up something to steal him away from us.

Again, if OB goes & get him, I'm happy. If he doesnt... I'm happy. I may not understand why he would want to start the season with Fitzpatrick under center when he could have Mallett, but if that's the way it goes I would take it as OB not seeing Mallett as an upgrade.

If he thought Mallett was a starter then it doesn't make sense to me to not have him here for training camp... even if it cost us next year's 2nd.

If he wants to bring Mallett in as a backup. Well that don't make any sense at all.

Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?! - [edit] Mallett?

Why on earth do people continue to think Mullet is better than what we have? At least what we have knows the offense. Bringing in a subpar talent like Mullet at this point in the season doesn't make sense. And who's going to let go of a good QB without asking for draft choices? And Mullet isn't a good QB.

Hell, they probably can't give Mallett away at this point.

After Garoppolo's performance last nite, for those who were hoping that Bellichick would cut or trade Mallett..........stick a fork in it.

I do wonder why Belichick didn't give Mallett any snaps.
The practical me says, Mallett knows the system and Bill's trying to get Jimmy G. as many in-game snaps as possible since neither Brady nor Mallett need them.

But there's a conspiracy theorist in me that says Mallett might screw the pooch and diminish whatever trade value he might have so Bill's keeping him under wraps.

Mallett has had 3 years in the system there and still looked no better
than our guys with one camp.

After watching our QB's mature, and what went on with Mallett, I'm
starting to believe that the system in NE only works because of
Brady -- and not vice versa

Well, there was that one year when Matt Cassell looked like a genuine starter. I think they went 11-5. But beyond that, no one else has started for any extended length of time since Brady took the reins.

Cassell might be a good pickup if the vikes release him -- He could
be a better alternative to fitz.

(and you could still keep Case and Tom to keep the cost of the addition
low)

I haven't watched the game yet, but looking at the stats (42 attempts 248 yards) & seeing a few highlights I have a feeling you'd say the same thing for anything short of a butt fumble.

He also went 10-6 with Charlie Weisz. I don't know why we weren't interested in him but signed Fitzpatrick & named him the starter.
