“Jacoby’s done a great job taking advantage of his opportunity,” Brady said. “He went in there yesterday and showed a lot of poise. . . . I know our coaching staff will have him prepared and ready to go if he’s called upon.”
And what if Brissett gets hurt Thursday against the Texans? Brady said Edelman, a college quarterback who switched to receiver in the NFL, is capable of doing the job.
“If that’s the case I’d expect Julian to go in there and the coaches to be comfortable with the plays they’re calling for him,” Brady said. “He still talks about that touchdown pass he threw against Baltimore a few years ago.”
Overall, Brady is pleased to see his team 2-0 without him.
“It’s certainly tough to watch but it’s great to see us win,” Brady said.
If the Patriots can keep winning down to their third-string quarterback, it’s a very good sign for how good a team they can be when Brady returns.
