Let me say, I really like Beck and I've said several times that I like Henne's pro-potential and they both have all my support and hope that at least one will turn out to be a great QB for us in the future.

With that said, I've been watching some clips of Kevin O'connell, the QB the Pats picked, since the draft.... and I gotta' tell you... he looks really good! I know the competition argument thing but, he looks like he has a really good NFL kind of style. I've seen him make some incredible NFL type throws. Besides coming from a smaller school, there must be a reason he flew so far under the radar. I have to watch more film on him for sure, but I pray they didn't do it again(finding a incredible QB in the later rounds...T. Brady) I don't want to wish failure on anybody(well maybe all the AFC east teams..:D) but, he looks pretty good.

I was wondering what your guys thoughts are on him........

He will probably be good if Belichick stays and they know what the other team is doing on every play.

well then... lucky for us (i guess) that he's stuck behind such a good QB... at least that means he likely won't go to another one of our rivals!

yeah he is a solid project pick since he won't be needed for a long time in NE

The Pats must not be sold on Brady if they are taking a QB that high.

Brady sucked in college and he will probably go back to sucking since the Pats supposedly won't be allowed to cheat anymore. Hopefully Billisuck will be fired after the May 13th meeting and my sport can get a little credibility and fairness about it once again.

Kevin O'Connell was the QB i was hoping the fins would pick up in the later rounds.:boohoo:
Oh well you win some you lose some.
I guess Henne will have to do since Parcells has a mancrush for the guy.

O'Connell will make a much better backup than Cassel ever was

he's mobile, got good size, and has pretty good intangibles

according to Mel Kiper, several teams had him as a first round prospect.

Last Wed and Thurs this kid started skyrocketing up the draft boards on about half the teams in the league. Mayock was the only "TV GUY" who gave him any pub at all at anytime early on in the whole "draft process".

He might end up being the 2nd or 3rd best QB of this draft when its all said and done. This kid IS the real deal. And getting picked by the Patriots who make few mistakes when it comes to the draft just proves it

Yeah maybe O'Connell will replace Brady sometime in the next 5-7 years??....seems like a wasted pick to me.

it wouldn't even PROVE it if they made no draft mistakes....did the Patriots drafting Chad Jackson prove anything with him?

He has just as good a chance of being the best QB in this draft as anyone else at this point....but his chances aren't any better because he was drafted by the Pats and will spend the forseeable future holding a clipboard.

With any great team you can bring up someone that didn't work out, but you can't deny that they have had a lot of success finding real gems in the later rounds.

I think matt cassel contract expires next year.so he got 1 yr before he will be the back up to brady.

Yeah, I mean, there were only 93 players selected ahead of him. The Patriots don't have any holes, and they have good depth at almost every position, what they don't have is a backup QB. If nothing else, this gives them a guy they can develop and trade for a much higher pick a couple of years from now.

I don't think Belicheck staying would make a difference; he wasn't anything untill Brady came along.

Maybe after the beating Brady took in the Super Bowl Belichick realizes that Brady isn't going to be able to continue to start every game - sooner than he would have preferred.
