I love Mallett
if he's playing then Brady is not. Brady is a HOF QB who know how to win...I'm 100% positive it doesn't get worse for us if Malletts in the pocket.
So, the Pats are brilliant for taking him? Not sure I agree. Suppose they trade him for a number 1 in two years. Teams generally value a 2nd this year similar to a 1st next. So, a 3rd now is the equivalent of a 1st two years out. If all works out they would be getting fair value for him but hardly a gold rush.
If all works out for him and Brady goes down they made a good move.
