Does New England QB Jimmy Garoppolo have Tools to Succeed?

Will Selva

With the regular season just weeks away, the Patriots are preparing for life without Tom Brady. As it stands today, Brady is still facing a four game suspension although it is rumored to possibly be shortened. Next on the depth chart at quarterback is 2nd year player Jimmy Garoppolo out of Eastern Illinois. Does that school sound familiar? Tony Romo went undrafted out of Eastern Illinois and panned out pretty well for the Dallas Cowboys. Garoppolo was selected in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft and is preparing to fill Tom Brady’s shoes while he’s out. With just 19 career completions, can Garoppolo succeed for the New England Patriots?

Although he has just 19 completions to his name, Garoppolo has played well in his limited experience. He completed 19 of 27 passes (70.4%) for 182 yards and one touchdown, a quarterback…

People Try To Catch Passes From An NFL Quarterback

This is classic.  Watch these turds try to catch a pass from Warren Moon, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback.  If they can’t catch it from him, imagine them trying to catch something from Cam Newton.

And yes, I get that they are not the most impressive athletes to roam the field with an NFL quarterback, but Warren Moon is retired and still tosses a mean ball. Anyway, watch the video for your viewing pleasure.

Jay Gruden: Stop Calling Me Fat

Washington is such a hilarious disaster, man. We’re not even done with the preseason, but the starting quarterback is shell-shocked and fed up, and the head coach is talking like a man who’s already in the middle of a 3-13 campaign. Here’s what Jay Gruden had to say to the press yesterday (via the Washington Post):

That’s all we’re trying to preach as coaches, man. Block out the negativity surrounding this franchise, and it’s our job as a football staff and football team to go out and change the perception of this franchise. That’s what we’re trying to do. But we have to go out there and prove it and do it to get the negativity out of here.

This team is 0-0! This is a time when coaches and players and fans are supposed to be feeling optimistic, not openly talking about the organization’s poisoned by negativity. Gruden went on to say he was taking all of the criticism that’s been lobbed at him in stride, but he’s not cool with people calling him fat:

“I really dislike the guy that called me a fat ass,” Gruden said with a laugh, referring to CBS Sports radio host Scott Ferrall. “That really ticked me off. I don’t mind you critiquing my coaching style, but to make fun of my weight, that’s unfair. I’m only 225 [pounds]. But other than that, man, it’s football.

The quarterback hates his life, everyone hates the team, and the head coach is publicly responding to fat jokes made at his expense. What a franchise.
