Pats Release Andrew Walter
Maybe Andrew Walter didn’t have what it took to be a New England Patriot after all. After a 38-27 victory over the Giants on Thursday, a disgruntled Walter was visibly upset when interviewed by reporters.
That’s just not the Bill Belichick way Mr. Walter. I’m sure the conversation between coach and quarterback went like this. “Mr. Walter, enjoy your shower and go on your way, we don’t need you anymore.” Whether or not Walter still had some Oakland Raiders rust to shake off doesn’t matter, the fact remains, Andrew Walter didn’t have what it took to be a Patriot on and off the field.
Without Walter, the Patriots go into the regular season with Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer as their only two quarterbacks. Entering the preseason, the Patriots had five quarterbacks but after releasing Matt Guiterrez, Kevin O’Connell, and Andrew Walter, Belichick’s bunch only has two. But don’t you worry Pats fans, Hoyer looked impressive last night against New York and Julian Edelmen waits in the wings in case, god forbid, anything happens to Hoyer or Tom Brady.
So stop fretting about our lack of quarterbacks, Belichick always has a plan, and his track record allows us to trust him. In Bill We Trust.
