One of the big questions for the New England Patriots in 2020 is who will be under center to start the season. Will it be Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer?
Once Tom Brady left immediately everyone thought that Stidham would be the starter but that has changed. Now more and more people seem to think otherwise.
I get what Ninkovich is saying. Hoyer is experienced and has been under center a lot more than Stidham. In an offseason where we don’t know when players will be able to practice.
Still, I hate this move. This is the equivalent of laying up in golf. I would rather the Patriots start fresh even if it would be risky.
We know what we will get from Hoyer. He will be a serviceable QB. He might be able to get the Patriots into the playoffs but I can imagine him going 8-8.
