What's going on, everybody? This is railroad from DP and Sports Talking Welcome to my final stream of the day in my final stream of the week here on the DPM Sports talk channel Here.
Live on SportsCastr.
Some of you who follow me on my affiliate channel in my official, I guess called my official SportsCastr Partner Content Channel.
Reroute Are you th? I was just on talking about Tom Brady's an assignment, and I got another one talking about Jared Stadium.
How the Patriots have a lot of confidence and Jared Stadium, which is great to know.
And that comes from Adam Schefter, who was talking about that and look forever and forever and forever.
The Patriots have had expectations through the roof, right? Every year that the favorites, they're gonna win the Super Bowl, they're gonna win the division of the favorites.
Tom Brady's to go Yadi Yadi Yadi Yadi ETA.
Well, I think it's very, very fair to say that exception that expectations have definitely been tempered for the New England Patriots this year when they lost their my guess forever.
Franchise starting quarterback future Hall of Famer Tom Brady when he went over to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and bring his talents toe Mike Goodwin in or Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and O.
Howard and and I was got Rob Gronkowski people.
Regardless of that, there seems to be this high level of optimism in New England right now that perhaps Jared State, um, could be a lot better than a lot of people are giving him credit for.
And they're very optimistic that that by them I mean the Patriots again, according to Schefter, that he's gonna bring a lot to the table this year, that he's going to be a significant part in a significant piece of this Patriots team.
Maybe not just in 2020 2020 but maybe in 2021 2022 all over the board.
Now, over the last two weeks or so, I talked a lot about Jared Stadium.
Guess what, guys? That's the number one piece in the news right now.
Everybody want to talk about Jared Stadium, so that's unfortunately what we're gonna have to talk about all the time.
But we could talk about worst things.
I'll tell you one thing, though.
I know that there's people debating whether stadium is gonna be the starting quarterback of the Patriots.
Trust me when I say Jared Stadium will be the starting quarterback of the New England Patriots.
Not Brian Lewicki.
Not Brian Hoyer.
But like I said, man, there has been plenty of speculation about these contingency pair plans for the Patriots to replace Brady.
And, I mean, that speculation started all the way back to the Jimmy Garoppolo days.
And it's not gonna go away until they could find a quarterback who can compete and can be.
Keep the Patriots competitive and Dan, they can **** well be Jared Stadium.
That speculation is going to continue now.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter.
Well, I got a call from here, and he feels like the Patriots are on track and that the records me addictive with their backup quarterback, Jared Stem, he says, quote.
I think it shows they have a lot of confidence in Jared Stadium, and it doesn't preclude them from picking up a quarterback sometime before training camp in bringing in another arm.
At some point, he said again, What they have said to use so far is this quote.
We believe in Jarrett Stidham and you heard David bring up Matt Cassel's.
I would also bring up Jimmy Garoppolo.
The year Tom Brady was suspended for four games, the Patriots went three and one without Tom Brady that year.
They are used to this sort of thing, and I think that they relish in this sort of challenge.
Now look, it doesn't surprise me at all that Bill Belichick would relish in a challenge to try to prove that he is.
He's the reason for New England success and not Tom Brady.
That's a giving.
We know that there's a competitive edge there.
I know there's a lot of Patriot fans who are upset with Bill ballot check about it, and we've talked in.
We went into great detail about this, so we're not gonna go into it now.
But I mean, I have faith in Jets did.
Um, I don't see why people don't I'm not saying the guy's gonna be All Famer.
I'm not saying the Patriots or even gonna make the playoffs this year.
I'm not ready to see that, But if I'm not ready to say this sock of doubtfully, definitely not ready to see that they're going to be bad.
Why would I do that? And you know the Patriots, man.
They love proving Doubters wrong, right? We talked about it as patron fans.
We talked about that all the time.
And Devin McCord? He's talked about it.
He knows what they're all saying in Irvine, people who have been doubting the Patriots going all the way back to 2001.
I guess it would have been 2002 at the time when they faced off against the greatest show on turf.
Here we are in 2020 and people continue and continue.
Continue to doubt the Patriots, Schefter continued, saying.
The fact that Tom won't be there, it will be a different offense.
It will be a different atmosphere.
It will be a completely different feeling with one guy who has been so important to the franchise for 20 years.
It's a whole new chapter.
I think that they love this.
I think there's part of them that looks forward to this.
Yeah, they're not tanking and yeah, I think they have big expectations for Jared Stadium and we will see whether or not they're valid right at a time where again I keep coming back to the economics of the business of sports, where after this year that cat maybe flat or potentially go down due to the pandemic end. Quote.
Look, I've been saying this is a fan.
Do I think that the Patriots are better without Tom Brady Know? How can I say the Patriots are better without Tom Brady? Am I going to say I'm not excited to see what the Patriots conduce without Brady? Of course, I am excited.
The fact that the Patriots could suck is this new.
At the end of the day, guys, this is a foot.
This is football.
Football is fun.
Well, I'd be upset if the Patriots won five games, of course, is going to be miserable season watching them 15 games.
I'm gonna cry about it.
Absolutely not A look as Patriot fans.
How the hell can we be upset at a team that has brought us soap any memories over the last 20 years? I mean, I'd say the pages seem has been competitive, going back to Drew Bledsoe back to the Super Bowl loss against the Green Bay Packers.
So it's probably been over 20 years that we've had a lot of memories.
As Patriots fans look, they've allocated such a small percentage of their salary captain season under center, it offers up some flexibility on the roster. Moving forward.
The Patriots have, like $100 million in salary cap next year, Schefter says. Quote.
Look at the look at the Patriots sitting there playing a second year quarterback and Jared Stadium and Brian Hoyer on a veteran minimum contract.
They have no money invested, basically in the quarterback position, and they will have flexibility if it doesn't go well to do what they have to do at that point in time.
But for now, they get to ride with Stadium who I think they believe in.
No, I mean, I think that's the third time that Adam Schefter said that the Patriots believe in Jared Stadium, you know, and when you look at him and the Patriots had a lot of high profile options that they could have chosen from to be Brady successor in New England, they had Teddy Bridgewater.
You had Cam Newton, Jamis, Winston, Andy Dalton, you know, and then you had quarterbacks like Jordan loves.
We heard rumors they're gonna trade up for to uh, you heard a lot of you heard a lot of different speculations about what the Patriots were going to do at the quarterback position.
And yet at the end of the day, when you wrap it all up into a book, earn to A to a book to a bow, they chose to stay with Jared Stadium and look, of course, time will tell whether or not New England made the right approach, whether they could justify their approach, whether the decision making was right, whether Jared System will be a franchise quarterback.
Maybe they just have Stadium is a as a as a fall guy.
I mean, I always, always, always felt bad for the people who had to.
I was thought about like imagine being the guy who has to fill in for Tom Brady.
Take over those shoes, become the next franchise quarterback nobody's ever gonna live up to.
The expectations is most Patriots fans.
But how can we sit here today and say the Jered stood him can't because of four throws in the NFL? Come on, you know it's gonna Come on, Josh McDaniels.
It's gonna come on, Bill Belichick.
It's gonna be the put Stadium and the rest of the offense in a position to be successful.
I think that's one that we need to stick with.
The coaches need to make sure that they are putting them in a position to be successful.
You can't run Tom Brady's offense.
You run Jared stadiums offense.
You'll run the things that Stadium does well, you do things maybe Brady couldn't do.
It's that simple, folks, whether Patriot fans want to admit it or not, whether the haters want a minute or not, the Patriots believe And Jared Stadium.
Maybe it's time for those of you who aren't on this bandwagon, start believing instead of a little bit, too.
With that being said guys again, this is rare out.
