That means rookie Jacoby Brissett would get the call against the Texans.
"If that's the case I'd expect Julian to go in there and the coaches to be comfortable with the plays they're calling for him", Brady said. We have a great deal here.
Garoppolo (shoulder) is expected to take part in Tuesday's walk-through practice, ESPN.com reports. I'm the coach, I do what's best for the football team.
Will Bill Belichick use Edelman as quarterback again? He's like 235 pounds. All decisions are what is best for the football team. "Is that something where you evaluate. He's a bright guy and he's coached very well there". His defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel had the same job in New England.
Of course, this is all hypothetical, but it's fun to think about what one of the greatest teams in recent years would do at quarterback with someone who doesn't typically play the position. But he still has a flawless track record of passing in the NFL.
As for Edelman, he seemed to downplay everything when asked Monday about being the emergency quarterback. Should, God forbid, Brissett go down, the next man up would be ... wide receiver Julian Edelman, who played quarterback at Kent State. "It's wonderful the way our team responds to adversity and the way our coaches prepare us for all these different situations that we face". "He's improved steadily since he's been here - after the draft and all way through".
Brissett went 6 of 9 for 92 yards on two scoring drives Sunday. What was supposed to be a blowout turned close when the Miami Dolphins scored on three straight possessions and had a chance to tie. Houston arrives with a streak of six quarters without a touchdowns against Chicago and Kansas City.
New England overcame a 14-point deficit to beat Baltimore, and after the game Brady had this to say about Edelman's quarterbackin' skills: "He throws it better than I did". "They don't give up many points". That's what we've always done around here that's what we'll always do as long as I'm here, that will never change, we will always do what's best for the football team. They haven't given up many.
"I don't know", Belichick said. When Belichick was asked his thoughts this morning, his response was standard. The pair are the only two players ever to win National Football League defensive player of the year honors three times. "He has been treated, like every other player", Belichick said.
"I don't know", he said.
