The one factor extra annoying than watching a forty-yr-previous Zoolander carve up your workforce is understanding that his 25-yr-previous fairly-boy understudy will someday do the identical.
In case you’ve taken up residence in a cave for the previous 20 years, you already know that Tom Brady has been a royal ache within the posterior for the Jets. His good-looking handiwork has completely scarred a annoyed fan base. Hell, this disgustingly good sign caller even had the Jets common supervisor questioning aloud about voodoo dolls this offseason.
Alas, there is just one opponent who will finally topple TB12: Father Time.
You realize it. I do know it. Invoice Belichick is aware of it. Thus, the buzzkill: Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t going anyplace. And he positive as hell isn’t going to be sporting inexperienced-and-white.
Some tortured Jets followers downplaying the necessity to Suck for Sam (or anybody else) on account of free-agent quarterback choices hoped/prayed that Jimmy G may be the elixir for his or her many years-lengthy sign caller unhappiness.
What higher solution to kill two birds with one stone than by snatching a promising younger quarterback away from The Evil Empire? It was sufficient to make some Gang Inexperienced diehards downright giddy. Not one of the optimism, in fact, was grounded in actuality.
Repeat after me: Jimmy Garoppolo won’t ever, ever, ever be a New York Jet.
It’s not occurring, people. Not immediately, tomorrow, the subsequent day, the subsequent month or the subsequent yr.
By no means. As in, rhymes with ever.
Belichick has wealthy individuals issues. Oh, what ought to I do with my two nice quarterbacks?
Ugh. It’s so irritating, isn’t it?
The Patriots should decide on Garoppolo, who’s making peanuts within the last yr of his 4-yr rookie contract, within the coming months. The strategically sensible selection for Belichick & Co. can be to signal the younger quarterback to a workforce-pleasant extension through the season, however there’s no actual motivation for the participant to ink a under-market deal given what he would command in free company in 2018. A strong case could be made that almost a 3rd of the NFL would need Garoppolo.
Belichick evidently turned down a number of provides for his most precious asset final offseason.
