I think it’s been crystal clear a lot of posters are for anyone but Cam. I think Teddy is a very good spot starter. He would have to redone his deal to fit under the cap,

Wouldn’t Cam and Teddy run very different O’s? You should have a backup who fits the system for the starter. Not sure they would be a match.
Yes. Teddy would run ours and Cam would run a small subset of ours.

Be careful not to conflate what our former qb ran as the Patriots offensive system. The system is the Erdhart-Perkins system and is highly adaptable to different strengths from different players.

BB has always talked about using a player's strengths rather than trying to force them into a role not suited to them.

I don't expect it would be any different at the QB position.

The offense that Cam aran last year was small subset of what won 6 Super Bowls with a few "Cam" plays thrown in. Cam is not TFB I realize. However adaptable the offense is designed to be, it would need to morph into something that is not in order to get it down to what Cam can do at his current level of ability. The program that runs the engine in my Wrangler is flexible. Regardless of how you tweak it, it will never win a street race.

Other teams besides the pats run a form of that system too. Its not rocket science. You just have to have the right players.

That is the part that was most frustrating. We needed to install a new system for Cam altogether. I was hoping we would do something similar to what Turner did with him in 2018 when he had his best statistical season until he got hurt mid-season.

Being told that BB is looking in to Richard Sherman joining the Pats.

I don't mind it. I think he would come cheap given the market and his age. Bill likes vets at the end of their careers. Remember Lynch?
Plus, Sherm brings some swag too.
