The New England Patriots have decided to trust second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Tom Brady left the Patriots to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Many thought that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick would select a new name in the 2020 NFL Draft, he decided to stick with Stidham and journeyman veteran Brian Hoyer. Brady will play with the Bucs for two years, and New England will open the upcoming season with Stidham. Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi has a big advice for the Pats regarding their offense.
It turns out that Stidham doesn’t even have to be the GOAT in 2020. The Patriots don’t have to reach the same success as they did in 2019. Bruschi has something to say about this. The former linebacker may say something you didn’t expect.
Bruschi spoke with Dan Roche from WBZ-TV about all the Patriots-related things. He also spoke about Stidham and his role as a starting quarterback in 2020. Stidham better take this advice and use it wisely.
“Just take care of the football,” Bruschi told Roche. “Offensive line, put the gumption on yourselves. Stidham is going to be fine, he has a great mentality. Having a little experience with Tom will help him realize it’s not Tom Brady he’s following, just a buddy of his that he has to come in and do the job. I think he has the right mentality to do that.”
Tedy Bruschi has the best advice for the Patriots
This sounds pretty reasonable to us. Some will expect Stidham to replace Brady. Well, he learned so much from the GOAT and wide receiver Julian Edelman will help him on the way to the Super Bowl.
The Patriots will have to try really hard to gain great success. They selected some great names in the NFL Draft. They also signed some undrafted players. Let’s see how will the team play in the 2020 season.
Brady is excited about his season with the Bucs. The Patriots are also happy for their fresh start. Both sides will have a chance to prove doubters wrong.
Edelman is here and the McCourty twins are also here. Everyone will try super hard, and Stidham has already had his workouts with his teammates.
