BOSTON — At some point, everybody here in New England needs to get over Jimmy Garoppolo.
He’s in San Francisco. And he’s not coming back.
The funny thing is, even if he was still a Patriot, he would still be Tom Brady’s backup in 2018.
If you’re still obsessed with Garoppolo, then you probably hate that I point out Brady’s dominance at the age of 40. You probably hate that Brady’s team is the favorite to win Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Feb. 3. You probably hate that, throughout all the drama, the Patriots are still the cream of the crop.
And if you hate all that, then you should probably just move to San Francisco.
Look, I’ll be the first to admit that Brady has been acting like an absolute weirdo lately. His absence at voluntary workouts didn’t help reel in someone like Rob Gronkowski during his cryptic message-filled offseason. But Training Camp officially begins this week, and both Brady and Gronkowski are expected to be there.
Which begs the question: When will everyone stop talking about Garoppolo?
