I don't live in Boston anymore, so I don't listen to Boston sports talk radio. Are the talking heads still saying BB made a mistake in drafting Jimmy G?
The talking heads say the Patriots made a mistake every time they draft a QB. But Kirk Minihane on WEEI today thought that 2 years of Brady vs 10 years of Garropolo has become a legitimate question at this point.

Nice to see the Giants winning games with their defense this year, so far.  Looks like all the money they spent on that side of the ball may have been worth it.

Oh, and is there a better receiving trio in the entire league than Beckham, Cruz, and Sheppard?  I'd be hard pressed to think of one.  A healthy Cruz is scary news for pass defenses.

I'm a Giants fan, so I try not to get too involved in football discussions on this board. But yeah, exiting stuff! Jenkins is looking great at corner, Vernon doing wonders for the line. And regardless of what team you root for, it's great to see Victor Cruz healthy on the field again. Shepard also looking like a steal of a pick.

Is there any doubt whatsoever that Garapolo is the 2nd best QB in the AFC East? If you said Fitzgerald or Tannenhil I wouldn't call you crazy. I'd just call you wrong.

Or that Belichick is an even better coach than he was getting credit for? Doing this without Brady certainly helps cement his coaching legacy.

Belichick is amazing.  The Patriots talent, without Brady, Gronk, Hightower, etc, that they had out there yesterday was subpar compared to other NFL teams, yet they were completely dismantling Miami in the first half.  I mean look at the Pats skill players ... Edelman, Amendola, Hogan and Blount.  Most of those guys were released by other teams.  They are average NFL players at best, and Belichick makes them look like All-Pros.  The man is amazing.

There was a quote that Bum Phillips said about Don Shula back in the day ... "He can take his'n and beat your'n, and he could then take your'n and best his'n".  This quote totally applies to Belichick.  I have no doubt whatsoever that Miami would've crushed the Pats yesterday if Belickick were coaching Miami and Gase coaching NE.

Again, that coach is Amazing.

This is just embarrassing for other teams. Seriously.

Without their HOF QB, their Pro Bowl TE, also missing Dion Lewis and a couple of offensive linemen; a backup QB making his first two career starts, then a third-string rookie QB making his first NFL start; beating a Super Bowl favorite on the road.

None of this has mattered. They just keep on winning.

How is this not embarrassing to the Cardinals, Dolphins, and Texans? Not because they lost, but because they got owned. Belichick and his staff are showing their football mastery right now. I just hope it ends with Goodell handing Brady another Super Bowl MVP trophy.

Funny how this one writer from the New York post ranked the Pats #4 this week compared to just about everyone else who said the Pats were #1. Not because of how well the Pats played but because he thought things would get worse for them after Jimmy G got hurt.

Suck it New York.

Great post. They're just making a mockery of the league right now.

Thanks. This may end up being the most enjoyable season of the Brady-Belichick era, and Tom's not even playing yet.

Well, that's how they looked when they started 10-0 last season too, so there's that.

There is no doubt whatsoever now that Bill Belichick is the single greatest NFL coach that ever lived, and probably ever will.

LOL @ the NFL!!

They tried so hard to screw the Pats, to humiliate them on national tv twice and the plan has totally backfired!
