Phil Simms Weighs In On Implications Of Jimmy Garoppolo Trade

New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo takes the field before an NFL football game against the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Mass. Sunday Sept. 24 2017 Report: Patriots trade Garoppolo to 49ers

"The point I think people have discussed the most is whether or not the Patriots got enough, and whether or not they could have gotten more if they would have traded Jimmy Garoppolo earlier on this offseason".

"I have a tremendous amount of respect for Jimmy".

"And Jimmy is getting a good coach (Kyle Shanahan)". But the Patriots have shown [that they can compete with any quarterback], just like previous year when Tom Brady was suspended for four games. Though, the long-term feasibility of this was minimal with the former second-round pick wanting to start moving forward. "It's definitely not something we wanted to walk away from, and I felt we rode it out as long as we could". Among Garoppolo's contributions included nearly immediately taking a leadership role of the 2014 rookie class, providing valuable insurance at the game's most important position, and then performing well when thrust into regular-season action. He is a great person to coach.

Ben Volin: I've been listening all morning to various opinions that the Patriots can now use the tag on Butler and Butler will be "all pissed off and that would really make him mad". "But as his career moves forward, we have to look at our team, both this year and beyond".

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Patriots still have just one quarterback on their roster. Even at 40 years of age, Brady is once again having a great season, and that may have ultimately led to New England's decision to strike a deal.

No matter how you slice it though, today was a good day for the Jets as one less QB hungry team will be in the top 10 and the possibility of landing Cousins, should he hit free agency, increased significantly.

That very well could be Brian Hoyer, who was released after the 49ers acquired Garoppolo.

CBS Local Sports: This trade also represents the New England Patriots going all-in with Tom Brady. He subsequently earned starts with the Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Chicago Bears and San Francisco, going 16-21. He was coming off a 2013 season in which he had completed just 60.5 percent of his passes (the second-lowest total of his career), had 11 interceptions, and his yards per attempt of 6.92 was his lowest mark since 2006.
