Based on the film, Garoppolo improved in the second quarter getting used to the speed and pressure of the Saints defense. The inaccuracy and the awful decision to heave the pass deep make me cautious going forward. Obviously, this is the first preseason game, but it’s something we need to look out for in future games.
The Patriots open their season on September 11, with Garoppolo set to face the Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix. If he keeps the job for the next three weeks, he’ll have to face the Dolphins, Texans, and Bills.
