Posted by TexasPat3[/QUOTE]RESPONSE: As I've said on several occasions now, it is MY OPINION. Furthermore, why do you and other kool-aiders find it necessary to twist my words? There's a huge difference between being in a fog...which indicates that his mind wasn't in the game...and him being lazy.
As for my statement being garbage, I am entitled to my opinion...just as you are.
OK, whatever I'm not going to argue semantics with you. The statement you said, the one that I quoted, the one you wrote about Brady is garbage. Sure, I guess it's your opinion that Brady was effected by the SB loss and it affected his game play. It's my opinion that the moon is made of cheese. But the moon either is or is not made of cheese. Brady either is or is not bothered by the loss. One is a fact, one is not. You couldn't possible know what's inside his head.
Not only can you not really draw any conclusions about how Brady played in 2008 where is was a respectable 7 for 11 for 76 yards before getting injured but you can't possibly know what his state of mind is. It is arrogant to think you can.RESPONSE: I have watched him play since he came into the league, and, based on MY OPINION, he was out of sorts in that game, as if his mind were elsewhere. How is that arrogant? What's arrogant is you taking the position that there's no validity to my comments. How do you know? What makes you right?
- I'm right because I don't claim to know what's on his mind.
And yes, claiming Brady and the team are bothered by the SB loss is claiming you know what's in their heads. You don't. RESPONSE: And you do? Any human being would be bothered by so devastating a loss...with so much riding on that one game. It was the type of loss that a player will take to his grave.
- I don't know. I know Elway lost 3 SB's before winning two. I don't know Brady or what he thinks or how he feels. I would never say I do.
And TP would you agree with Rajon that the Pats are not trying to win this year? RESPONSE: Of course not. Their problem is that their "D" stinks. And do both of you think this is the sort of objective fact based analysis that is above criticism? RESPONSE: I have explained in detail, using stats, why their defense stinks. Do you think they have a good defense? But, if you wish to live in a fantasy world where everything Patriots is wonderful, be my guest.
- Do I think the Patriots have a good defense? Ummm.... in the post that you responded to (and it's still below) I wrote "The defense has played bad". Who's twisting things now.
RESPONSE: What the hell are you talking about? I'm saying the reason you are getting criticized by the regulars around here is because of this sort or garbage psychoanalysis. I've seen Zbellino, Tcal, Killa, Mighty, CarawayDJ, Pmike, myself and plenty of others criticize the Pats play. They can stick to facts, and nobody jumps on them because they know what they're talking about and don't try to interject into the state of mind of the players.RESPONSE: What does Brady's state of mind have to do with the Pats' terrible defense? That said, I do think that, after the SB, that the Patriots lost their swagger. They haven't beaten a good team on the road since that loss. That's a fact. They are constantly blowing games in the second half. That's a fact.

- Brady's state of mind doesn't have anything to do with the defense. Really, I don't know that anybody has said the defense played well. Nobody is disagreeing with that point, it's the other stuff.
The Defense has played bad, not everybody, but some people. Zbellino gives good breakdowns of plays and what went wrong, so does Reiss.RESPONSE: The defense has collectively stunk. If you don't like what I have to say, simply place me on ignore and go read "Z" and Reiss.
Yeah, and you can place me on ignore also. Look, I don't usually mind reading your grades, they at least create good talking points for discussion which is why I come here, but lately they've been full of absurdities. I figured since you and Rajon were both enjoyed saying that anyone that disagrees with you is a Kool aid drinker and can't except "facts" than I would present your absurd statements to each other and see if you could see why people discredit your opinion. He thought your statement about Brady might have some validity, you dismissed his.
What I'm telling you is when you make statements about Brady's state of mind and other absurdities that you couldn't possibly know it discredits your whole post. It sounds like your just bitter about a loss and are throwing unfounded insults out at the Pats.
Many people have tried to politely tell you the same thing. Instead of just admitting you were p*ssed about losing to the Jets when you said the stuff about Brady being in a fog and that contributing to his injury you have stubbornly stuck by that statement.
That's all, I don't hate you TP. I would just rather see you get back to football, so I can enjoy reading your posts. I don't always agree with your grades but I can accept that we can disagree on that sometimes but when your saying stuff about the Pats or Brady't state of mind than I can't take your grades seriously.
I've said my piece now so I'm done with this thread.
