Patriots fan pages on Facebook are full of gems. People love sharing their brand new Pats tat they got in their friends basement, comparing Matt Cassell to Jarrett Stidham, or going deep down the rabbit hole of “tanking for Trevor.”
Stidham is a rookie quarterback. We know that Belichick is great at maximizing players but this position is different. We can’t compare him to Matt Cassel who acquired one of the best NFL teams of all time when he took over for an injured Brady in 2008. What we can do is try to understand where Stidham is coming from.
