DATELINE: Cable Cars Come and Go
As coach Swami Bill Belichick said to Scarlett O’Hara, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” With those words, the quarterback of the Patriots future went West, Young Man.
With NFL QBs at a premium, and with their quarterback of the future under contract for two more years, the Patriots felt strongly they could send Jimmy G packing before the Curse of the Broken Brady Mirror caused untolled grief in New England.
Though thought to be set as the next Franchise Player, arrested and held in house for next season, it appears that another Tom Brady acolyte will be running his own team sooner than later.
The San Francisco 49ers will not re-sign Colin Kaepernick now that Jimmy will be high-stepping and standing up for Country.
As for the Patriots, the Patriots are left with only one young, handsome immortal: the ever-perennial blooming Jack Benny of the Gridiron. Tom plans to stick around.
Who then shall take a seat behind Brady for the rest of the season? Surely, Trump-loving Belichick will not stand for Colin Kaepernick. No, he won’t have to. It appears the 49ers will release Brian Hoyer, Tom’s past backup QB. Tom’s other backups are all hard at work with other teams: Jacoby, Matts 1 & 2, and now again Brian–but hold on to your past backup.
Everything comes full circle. The one-time Brady backup Hoyer who flopped in San Francisco and left his heart on the field will return to New England where the splinters in his pants are awaiting a reunion with his former championship team.
Well, now, you don’t need a rear-view mirror after all, Tom. Take Maxwell’s Silver Hammer to another one.
