It’s always been said the most popular player on any football team is the backup quarterback. You know, until he’s not the backup quarterback any longer. Then he just feels the wrath of the fan base like the previous starter.
And right now, the most popular QB in the room is none other than Jimmy Garoppolo.
After Tom Brady looked very not Tom Brady like in the Patriots disturbing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Opening Night, some fans apparently felt like the hook was needed.
Yes, that’s right, they wanted to bench Tom Brady in favor of Jimmy G.
I seriously move on the Garoppolo after this game just tell Brady like they told Kosar 25 years ago

There is going to be a time when Tom Brady no longer looks like the Tom Brady we’ve all become accustom to. Father Time remains undefeated.
But after four quarters of football, there’s no way to know if that’s true, especially after the former NFL MVP had what many consider to be the best season of his career last year.
Pump your brakes on benching Tom Brady, Henny Penny.
