The long appeal process surrounding the infamous “deflate gate” has come to an end. The results are not very shocking… Star Quarterback, Tom Brady is suspended the first four games of the NFL regular season. With this major hole to fill, who is going to step up and be named the starter?
The man who will try to fill that gaping hole, is Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Played college ball at Eastern Illinois University, where he performed above average. Although he rarely saw the field in his first two seasons with New England, he has thrown for 188 yards, and 1 touchdown. He has looked pretty solid in is first couple of preseason games, but he will need to elevate his game to another level in order to carry New England through the first four weeks.
