. New England Patriots. . team. 47. .

We’ve seen former Philadelphia Eagles flourish in New England before.

If you’re a casual fan, there’s something that you may have missed. In certain sects of the game’s most loyal fan base, there’s a joke that has been told on more than one occasion. Players will leave Philly, wind up on the New England Patriots’ roster, and wind up being pretty good. Look at Eric Rowe, Danny Amendola, and Dion Lewis if you need a few examples.

The Patriots are dealing with something that they haven’t had to deal with in a while, mediocrity. Cam Newton can’t throw the ball anymore. No one fears this team. Sure, they had a ton of important guys opt-out of the season, but this is brutal to watch, even if you hate the Pats.

It’s hard to believe that Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels are excited about Jarrett Stidham. If they were, they would have never gone out and gotten Newton in the first place right?

What if the Eagles traded Carson Wentz and he landed with what might be the greatest NFL head coach of all time and a brilliant offensive coordinator in McDaniels? Are you interested? Are you certain that the Patriots aren’t? Tell the truth. You didn’t even believe they had a serious interest in Cam Newton until that happened.

We know Belichick likes discounts, and we know the Patriots don’t have a real long-term answer at the quarterback position. Write this one down. This could pick up some steam later.
