A little harsh but that comes with the territory. Brady did his part in contributing to the loss. But to be honest, Gronk was one on one with a d-linemen. You'd expect to make that play or at least not let the guy catch it.

quite simply one of the worst articles ive ever read...made very little sense with little support. I guess anybody can write on the internet these days.

I like the one line "well if welker woulda caught that you woulda been in the clear..." Yeah i guess so.

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.
He was enough of a risk that only two teams showed strong interest in him. He tore up his shoulder pretty bad if I recall. He was no lock to return to his former self.

Does anybody blame Tom Brady for anything? Jesus h titty ****ing christ it's sickening.


OOOOo........Tom didn't win b/c X person did this or Y person did that.

Yeeeaaahh...Tom won the game even though it was the kicker really did.


It's ****ing old and god damn annoying.
In my book when you look like this you can say anything you want because I'm not listening to what your saying anyways.

I remember the Dolphins auditioned Brees and Daunte Culpepper to determine who was going to lead the franchise for the next however many years. They determined Culpepper was the better option. Just goes to show how one big whiff at the QB position can set you back for years and years. And on the flip side, how one homerun at QB can make you a perennial playoff team. I want a homerun oh so badly.

On top of that, his "former self" had not been exactly tearing it up like he is now. His first three years were mediocre at best. Followed by two very good years (~65% completion each year, 3100 & 3500 yrds, 27 & 24TD's) - but even his two best years in SD don't compare to what he has turned in at NO (last three years he is averaging around 70% completions, 4500 yards & 35 TD's).

These last three years he has been a machine. Given his injury and the entirety of his playing history to that point, no one could have seen what was coming.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning deserve a ton of credit. Both are worthy of Hall of Fame consideration. Tom Brady will go down as one the greatest ever, but the Giants simply have the Pats number on the big stage and it was good to see a little tarnish knocked off the golden boy image. .

Brady took a couple of tough shots from Tuck near the end, I wonder if that had anything to do with his drop off in play.

I never thought it was that bad. I know if it had been the regular season, he'd have been out for a few months, but I don't recall it being a career threatening injury. I get that it was a risk, and Skinsfan69, I'm well aware that how good he is today is a perfect combination of luck, skill, and circumstances, but all I'm saying is at the time of his FA signing I felt like long term he had a good chance to put up above average numbers. Not the kind of numbers he's putting up today, but obviously no one saw that coming.

Boston fans showing once again what moronic trash they truly are. Apparently, the other SB wins have already been forgotten. Sad.

I think the Dolphins doctors were concerned about his shoulder and recommended against signing him.

Wow what a horrible article. Blasphemy.

Talk about spoiled... The writer should come hang out at the Warpath. He can go thru our 20 different QB threads and find Brady's replacement.
