11 Reasons The Patriots Are Refusing To Trade Jimmy Garoppolo
In a league that is starved for starting-caliber quarterbacks, Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo is a juicy, tender filet mignon. He is a bright beacon of hope for all of the teams that think another Tom Brady disciple will fix all of their problems. He is the reason that some team out there might avoid having to start Case Keenum.
Except apparently, he's not.
After last season's spectacular showing in two starts during Brady's suspension, Garoppolo completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 502 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. He was the talk of the town at the time, and as the season progressed and it became more obvious than ever that Brady is a space wizard who will play until he's 57, NFL teams began to count on the fact that the Patriots would trade him.
After all, no one loves accumulating draft picks more than Bill Belichick.
But the Patriots are playing with a new set of rules now. They just won their fifth Super Bowl title under impossible circumstances, defying logic all season and then doing the same in the actual game. They clearly feel untouchable, and in some ways, they are.
So with that in mind, here are the 11 reasons that the Patriots are refusing to trade Jimmy Garoppolo:
Because they want to.
Because they can.
Because they don't feel like it.
Because they're busy.
Because it's Wednesday.
Because it's funny.
Because you want them to so now they don't want it.
Because you wanting it so much kinda takes the fun out of it.
Because they're currently using him as a human Lombardi Trophy stand.
Because they thrive on chaos.
Because fuck you.
