    2020 Pats: Building Camaraderie

    If Stidham crashes and burns, I'd prefer a better draft pick. If Stidham flounders, and he and Newton manage to put up eight or nine wins, it will be the worst possible result in terms of finding a QB for the next decade.

    RD5 #13/#159: K Justin Rohrwasser, Marshall

    RD5 #13/#159: K Justin Rohrwasser, Marshall
