Bill Belichick gave a hilariously firm guarantee that Tom Brady won't be replaced by his backup when his suspension is over

Patriots Bill Belichick Is Already Sick Of Quarterback Questions

The New England Patriots are going through training camp, and the major story has been the preparation of Jimmy Garoppolo, the Patriots' backup quarterback.

While Tom Brady is going through training camp, once the regular season begins, he'll serve his four-game suspension for Deflategate, meaning Garoppolo will be the starter.

The NFL world is high on the 24-year-old Garoppolo, and given his youth, compared to the 38-year-old Brady, some have wondered if he could possibly hold onto the starting job, even when Brady returns in Week 5.

Bill Belichick has done his best to quell this idea. He opened training camp by saying Brady will be the starter when he returns. On Friday, when pressed further about the idea that Brady could be replaced by Garoppolo, Belichick gave as firm of a guarantee as he could that Brady will be the starter. Via Boston Globe's Ben Volin:

Well, that settles that.

Garoppolo hasn't played a meaningful NFL snap in his two-year NFL career. Coming out of the gates, he's got a lot to learn to keep the Patriots afloat while Brady is out. However, even if he plays well, it doesn't sound like he has any shot at replacing Brady.

Sorry, Jimmy.
