I don't think Brady could have been asked to do much more than he did.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Brady gave the Giants two points at the beginning of the game.
A morale boost it was not.
That and the pick he threw were huge boo boos in that game.

He also led back to back TD drives (one starting inside the Pats' own 5 yard line) going 16-16.

If that's Brady's downslide, then sign him to the Redskins! Can't help it when your receivers drop passes.

Too bad Gronkowski wasnt 100%.
It might have been a different game.

Not to be picky, but Brees was a HUGE risk for any team given his shoulder injury. I honestly don't remember how much of a sure thing Brees was thought off when he became a free agent. Of course we all know how things turned out, but still.

I don't think Brees was a huge risk at all in FA. The only reason I didn't advocate signing him was because we had just drafted JC and we all thought of him as the qb of the future. If we hadn't drafted JC I'dve been all over Brees. And the huge risk thing is overrated. Yeah, he had hurt his shoulder. But it wasn't even being talked about as something that could end his career or keep him out long term. The injury was a short term concern.

So you are saying that San Diego got rid of him for no reason whatsoever? The shoulder injury wasn't career ending, but it was a concern when he hit free agency. My point is that Brees wasn't a "sure thing" when he became a free agent; if he was, San Diego would not have gotten rid of him.

San Diego had Rivers in waiting. It was obvious Brees wasn't going to be there forever. They had a choice to make and they decided to go with the younger, cheaper, and more long term option. Brees made it a tough choice since he started playing decent ball in '04 and '05, but that combo of factors played the role. Yes the injury factored into that too but I don't think it was ever a question of would he return to the same performance level. The injury was just bad timing.

Was River drafted while Brees was still the Chargers QB? I can't remember.

Correct. Rivers was drafted in '04. Brees's last year in San Diego was '05.
