Tom Brady has to be the hardest QB to build around.
How can you say that?
What we have experienced is the Pats DO NOT bring in skilled WRs for Brady to throw to like we see compliment many of the top flight QBs in the league. If Brady is that hard to build around, how is it the WRs he does get seem to do so well considering their relative lack of play making capabilities? Also, I do not recall Brady throwing any of his teammates under the bus. He works hard with whoever he has to throw to.
Well, he's right. Brady has been incredibly difficult to make happy here. He demands HOF WRs or TEs, and looks at binkies only, so defenes know that, which compromises his quality of play.
This started happening in 2007 when Moss and Welker arrived and Brady knew those kinds of players would boost his stats.
In a nutshell he turned into the old version of Gomer Manning who would do that all year with Harrison, Clark, Wayne, etc, and then Harrison in particular would disappear in postseasons.
Why? Defenses knew what Gomer's preferences were, on what downs and distances, etc.
Brady has become lazy and has passion for the game has faded since Giselle came into the picture.
Sad, but true.
He doesn't DEMAND anything, you fudging fool.
And even if he did, he sure as hell never got it as BB was too busy drafting defensive players to fix a PATHETIC D for the past 7 years. Still PATHETIC!
He drafted 2 freaken receivers in 6 years and they BOTH SUCKED!
He picks up Mike Jenkins and Donald Jones in Fa (other than dannyIR, who was extremely underwhelming) and none of those guys are even in the league anymore. Neither are LLoyd, Ocho and Galloway or any of the pathetic stiffs he expected TB to win games with.
PIZZ POOR GM! Can't fix a D and certainly can't draft receivers. Sure can put a ST together, though. Bwahaha
Thank god for Welker and JE and part time Gronk (after trying to get a TE for 10 years), or he'd have absolutely NOTHING! No receivers, no defense, NOTHING!
BB changed the offense in 2010 going from a traditional spread WR base, to a TWO TE Set base.
You're too stupid to get this.
2009 was a transition year, so no one cares if Galloway didn't work out. BB dealt Seymour and Vrabel and was cleaning the books for huge deals due for Brady, Wilfork, Mankins and even Mayo's second deal which was due by 2011.
End of story.
Brady sucks and has sucked in AFC title games whether with loaded weaponry or not.
Mike Jenkins and Donald Jones were cheap, veteran camp comp. fallback options. HE does this every year at certain parts of the roster.
But, Thompkins and Dobson, impressed so much, BYE BYE the older Jenkins and bye bye, the retired (due to a lingering internal issue), Donald Jones.
So, no matter how ya slice it, BB won. Edelman took over for Welkie and the two rooks at WR impressed, Amendola was solid and they waited on Gronk, with a GREAT rushing attack with talented RBs in here, about 3 or 4 deep. Most teams are lucky to have 2.
2007 was an aberration. I know you JUST STARTED watching this team then, but the rest of us know the game and have been fans for over 30 years.
Go back to your video games and watch your highlight reels of aerial bombs down the field, Gladys.
The rest of us will have big boy football discussions. lol
You're right 2007 was an aberration. He actually had receivers. look what happened, 18-1 until the D gave the game away. Thanks D! Hobbs on Burress...pfs Thanks BB!
He's been trying to get those TE's for years, dope. No secret. Bavarro ring a bell?
He finally did. Congrats! WOOHOO. Where the F are they and their 90M contracts now?
Oh yeah, eating up valuable cap space.
Where were they the year before that when they played a total of 1 game together.
Who took up the slack? Smurfs! Seems the big changes to the 2 TE set, worked exactly one year. FAIL!
2 years with real receivers, 2 partial years with 2 TEs and 10 years of smurfs, with this being the worst of them all. 4 rookie receivers. My god, who does that? Not even the dumbest coach.
