Actually seems impossible when you think about it, but the Patriots have never started a black quarterback. Ever.
Even wilder, they aren’t the last team left who hasn’t started a black quarterback before. The Giants have been using average looking white guys forever.
On Brissett, he’ll be fine with the Patriots. They’ve got an all-time great system in place that allows quarterbacks to ease into the league. Tom Brady wasn’t an unbelievable QB his first few years, but the system allowed him to grow into an all-time great. Good for Brissett, and even Jimmy G. Both of them will be getting those Matt Flynn-esque contracts soon.
