Numbers Time: A Jimmy G Miracle

Today, Patriots backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo was traded to the 49ers. Why, you ask, would an 0-8 team go for broke for a quarterback? According to the 0-8 Niners and Browns are still in playoff contention. Some 4-3 teams are currently in the top six seeds, so if Handsome Jimmy G can take them 8-0 in the next eight weeks, it could happen. I mean, even an 0-5 team has never made the playoffs, so, no, it’s not going to happen. But the important thing to remember is they are still, yes, technically, in playoff contention.

But let’s also talk about the 2-6 Colts. They have a season point differential of -104 (compared to the Niners -86 and Browns -83) and they’re still in playoff contention. I guess with other former Patriots backup QB Jacoby Brissett under center, anything is possible.

The loser in all this is Brian Hoyer, another former Patriots backup QB, who was let go from the Niners for Garoppolo. Maybe Hoyer’s former team, the Browns, will pick him up and Tom Brady’s former shadows can compete to perform the world’s most unlikely of miracles.

Probably not, though.
