Trading Jimmy Garoppolo in 2017

Obviously the Patriots regret drafting and then eventually re-upping tight end Aaron Hernandez, but that’s related to tragic off-the-field developments. Instead, we’ll give you a move the Pats might already wish they could have back, strictly for football reasons.

They would have been better off keeping Garoppolo and hitting him with the franchise tag or even a long-term deal (it wouldn’t have been as lucrative as his new contract with the 49ers because he wouldn’t have started late in 2017). 

It was a rare football mistake for a team that probably wishes it didn’t trade Chandler Jones for Jonathan Cooper and Patrick DiMarco Jersey a second-round pick in 2016 but has generally possessed a Midas touch beyond that.  

What I’m getting at is: ABJF. Anyone But Jeff Fisher. 

The Rams posted a losing record in each of Fisher’s four full seasons as well as the partial year that led to his firing in 2016, and no team in football scored fewer points or gained fewer yards during Fisher’s tenure in St. Louis/Los Angeles. 

But what really cost the Rams is the fact that they held on for so long. The damage Fisher caused might have been limited had they recognized their mistake when everybody else did and fired him in 2014 or 2015. Instead, they let him bring his stale brand of football to a new market and allowed him to get within 100 yards of top 2016 pick Jared Goff. 

A coach who got the absolute least out of Nick Foles and Case Keenum didn’t fare much better with Goff, who bombed as a rookie after spending months under Fisher’s tutelage. Thankfully, the Rams cut bait on Fisher late that season. Just over a year later, Goff was a Pro Bowler, the Rams had the highest-scoring offense in Chad Kelly Youth Jersey the league, Keenum was the league’s seventh-highest-rated passer in Minnesota and Foles won Super Bowl MVP with the Eagles.
