Would Belichick Tank The Pats To Draft Trevor Lawrence In 2021?

Recommended Posts

Would you question the Pats & Belichick to manipulate their play to get Trevor Lawrence? I know that sounds outlandish but with the history of the Patriots it might not be. Who they choose to fill in for Brady may be an indication. Certainly if they start off losing games you know that question will come up. That's what the media does.

Perhaps! But if Lawrence decides to stay his senior year it would completely screw their plan. Wouldn’t that be interesting...

Belichick will win even with Andy Dalton. His top notch  defense won so many games in the division and outside last year. Just give him an above average QB like Dalton and he can win the AFC East. HFA is another question. 
 

Don’t be surprised if Stidham and the Patriots win the AFC East again, driving a knife into everyone hoping for the Patriots demise.

 

That team is talented enough to win 8 games without Brady, IMO.

Tanking is for losers with loser mentality. 

Like him or not Belichick does not have a loser mentality.

I was under the impression the Pats enjoyed picking late in the 1st, or trading back into the 2nd, since it saves money, and Belichick is a tight wad. Even in his contract negotiations with Brady, from what I read, it came down to money; Belichick wanted Brady to play for less money than last season, so Brady walked.

I doubt they would have the #1 pick but anything could happen. Having a top defense is enough to get you to win a few games. Losing Brady and plugging in someone else, they should be okay to win but probably not Super Bowl again.

That's subjective and short-sighted. 

 

If you want to win long-term and ensure future success, you tank one year, get the best QB prospect since Luck, and win for another decade....doesn't seem like a loser mentality to me.

It's hard to see Belichick tanking.  

 

Somehow I think he's going to trade a 5th round pick for Deshaun Watson.  And Bill O'Brian is going to give it to him because he's Bill O'Brian.

 

Watson will be good for another 4 Belichick SB's minimum.

No.   The most competitive coach in NFL history is not going to tank.  
 

They’ll either go with Stidham, who reports say they really like, or they’ll trade for someone like Dalton and keep wining.   They may not win 13 games, but they would likely win 9-10 games. 
 

No tanking in their future....

If you lose on purpose, your a loser.....period. You can paint all the lipstick you want on that swine, but it still smells like bacon.

Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, Andy Dalton, Belichick can win 10 games with all of them.

More likely they win the Superbowl but trade someone away for someone else's 1st rounder and it ends up being 1st overall

NFL teams have tanked for QBs

 

if you dont believe that then watch the buccaneers last game of the 2014 season and get back to me.

 

i cant imagine BB doing it now though, hes too old to burn a season like that

I would say no. BB thinks he can be cheap and still win.  For the most part he has no loyalty to players and thinks he can win big with average talent.

    • I just want to be top 10 in passing and rushing (top 5 total O), and top 10 vs the run, and top 15 vs the pass (top 10 total D). If we can do all that, I like our chances. Well rounded to me is the key.    IMO, our pass D needs to improve a bunch if we want to improve our TOP. Our soft zone bend don't break, bent way to much last year. Can't continue to play that far off the LOS>
    • I disagree big time. I predict a disaster if sport teams are allowed to have fans in stadiums.
    • We signed Funch, he just got hurt..... He was expected to be our starting go-to X. Pascal became the defacto X when Funch went down.   6-2 is not really a prototypical X. It's tweener size. And at his speed and vert, he really doesn't have the ability to "play bigger" than his height. Sure there are some successful Xs at his height, but typically they have other attributes (speed, arm length, radius, etc) or a combination of attributes. I think it was pretty telling too that they drafted a second guy that fit the same profile (Patmon).   Just to compare them.               MP         ZP HT        6-4          6-2 WT      220          219 40         4.52        4.55 Vert        36.5      36.0 20YS      4.14      4.29 3Cone    6.96       7.11    So bigger and faster. And it's truly not all about the measurements, but they do absolutely favor Pittman. His production and film show it to.   And like I said, I really like Pascal, I just don't think he should be our starting outside X. I do like his potential as a big slot though, and bet he gets a decent amount of snaps from there.
    • I think AFC Title Game will be Colts at Ravens, NFC Title Game Bucs at Seahawks. Talk about different. Repeating is tough so Chiefs won't do it IMO. Not sure on the SB yet.
    • Not just height and weight...     but speed, quickness, vertical and broad jumps...   things that translate to being explosive.    I think Pascal is somewhat lacking in those areas.   I don’t believe he was drafted.   Doesn’t mean he can’t be good.   But it may mean he’s got a lower ceiling than others.
