What do y'all think?
It's pretty clear to even a casual fan that Drew's talent far surpasses Tom Brady. The Patriots toned down their offense and played close to the vest with Brady last year, and were successful. Brady's trade value would never have been higher coming off the Super Bowl performance.
The real gutsy move for the Patriots would have been to trade Brady. I'm pretty sure Donahoe WOULD NOT have been in the market for Brady, but I'd bet a team would have been interested in giving up a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick for him, which would have allowed Bledsoe to remain the franchise in New England.
Oh well- our gain!
