So, instead of keeping Brady and remaining competitive, or tanking in hopes of hitting on a Brady replacement in the draft, you want to turn it over to Stidham in hopes of being likely mediocre?Go with Stidham. Change the offense to suit the way he plays. Get more speed and athletic players and start to turn over that aging defense. The sooner they break this down the better off they will be in the long run. Hanging on to false hope gets teams in trouble. As BB has said its better to get rid of players a year early than a year late.
Splitting the difference feels like far and away the worst of those three scenarios.
They're allowed to add speed and athleticism whether Brady is here or not, because that's mostly a draft thing. It's not like they're going to go out and spend the Brady savings on some young, speedy, athletic free agents that'll help them win a future Super Bowl. Because it's likely by the time Stidham is ready to win a Super Bowl, if he ever is, those young, speedy, athletic free agents you signed will now likely have aged into old guys you're complaining about.
