I don't follow football. is that Jimmy Garofalo kid legit or did he just have a couple flukey great games, because of the Patriots system? Also, is his injury going to keep him out the next couple games?
Disclaimer: Patriots fan responding here.
Jimmy G has been very impressive filling in for Brady. Last week, he beat the Cardinals, a team that many had as their Super Bowl pick this year, in their own home stadium and he did it without the team's best offensive weapon (and possibly the league's most unstoppable force) Rob Gronkowski, and arguably the team's two best offensive linemen, Nate Solder and Sebastian Vollmer. Up until his injury, Jimmy was ripping through Miami's supposed "stout" defense consistently leading them to touchdown drives despite still not having Gronk. I do think he has great receivers to throw to, but even great receivers suffer when they play with a crappy QB. I think Jimmy's shown he has what it takes. He's played so well that a thought came to my mind that he could be the Aaron Rodgers to Tom Brady's Brett Favre but that's getting wayyyy ahead of myself.
Also, they say the injury wasn't as bad it may have looked but he will be out on Thursday against the Texans. It doesn't really matter because Brady will be back in 3 weeks and the Pats have held their ground well in his absence.
