Now that Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo are gone, the New England Patriots will have to draft another quarterback and groom, invert them into their system and style of play! Whether Robert Kraft told Bill Belichick to trade Garroppolo is irrevelent!

The New England Patriots did not want to have to pay him a higher salary next season or put the franchise tag on him! So they traded him where he could thrive and prosper! I would have kept Jacoby Brissett who was adapting, adjusting and flourishing in their system and would have been ready to take over, lead when Tom Brady leaves!

Journeyman Brian Hoyer is not the future quarterback of the New England Patriots. Drafting another quarterback this April is now necessary. Money, time, training, instructing another quarterback to back up Tom Brady will be a long drawn out process again, where if Brady plays until he is 45, this situation will occur once more!

The New England Patriots need to decide and get who will replace Tom Terrific, keeping them long enough to step right intp the No. 1 spot!
