In response to Neal Page's comment:
It's like saying Dean Pees wasn't fired. He was. Just because the Pats don;t come out and make a big statement about who they fired, it doesn't mean they weren't let go to improve a situation.
What NFL team brings in a future OC DURING THE PLAYOFFS? NO TEAM DOES. BB could have easily called McDaniels and said "I am looking forward to having you back when our season is done." He didn't.
How can you be this blind? If I am O'Brien, I am moritified that McDaniels is sitting in the meeting rooms as the future OC while I am the OC currently.
You can spin it all day long and however you want, but you can't change reality. Also, Bill O;'Brien being a default choice at PSU is nothing to brag about. I am sure he got a raise, which is good for him, but let's not pretend the PSU job was even competed for or a hot job to go after.
As for Brady, he's the QB of my team. But, he's not above the team. This is where I disiagree with the Ballwashers, who believe he is above reproach regardless of what he does in games, because of his past accomplishments. I just want him to play well in the postseason again. If you can't see this, I can't help you. This is why a 45-7 pasting of the weak Rams D or the weak Eagles D last year means jack squat. Jack squat.
I want the Brady that MEANS it when he says "it's about the next one" (getting the next ring).
He's going to get another chance this postseason. It's literally all up to him and how he runs the offense during the game. He's the QB. It's the most important position in sports, arguably. Just like last year I know BB will have this D ready and playing to their utmost level, I wonder about the offense agains the good Ds and if Brady/McDaniels stay patient. The question is about how Brady will play at 20 mil per and being our best player.
The better question for you is, why do you and some others here care more about stats in the regular season as if it matters in January or February? It's the weakest argument ever as to why me as a diehard fan has to be overly-enamored to be able to post here in peace.
This is like a Brady Lover Clique Board for fantasy football fans and kids with video game controllers in their hands. That's what it is.
You should be asking those people and maybe yourself why you don't appreciate the masterful rebuild on the fly to provide this landscape for all the players to thrive in, including Tom Brady.
I called this 2-3 years ago. All of it. I said to just be patient and wait because when he's done you're going to really like what you see. But, we have a bunch of morons who take the anti-media bait (go read any recent mazz, gasper, etc, piece), and use that as their reaction.
We actually have people here taking the Felger cue about how the cap doesn't matter and we see him praising the Jets for these last 2-3 years, yet you know see why he's a moron and why the Jets are done for years to come. LMAO
This is the person I am going to agree with? A sensationalist, flaming radio head who has little minions running around here on this board? Really?
Again, I am one of the few here who gets it. The cap doesn't go up until 2015 and BB has the youngest and cheapest D in the league, while he invests more so in the offensive side of the ball in an offensive era. Yet, these same fans here mock BB and then are overly critical of the D while simultanelously ignoring issues on the offense?
How does that make sense?
Look, I hope they get on a major roll here and I think they can, but my concerns remain that McDaniels is not much different than O'Brien when fishing through the playbook during games. We'll see. But, we all know what this is about and it's why you all are so sensitive about it.
If Brady and the offense he leads played better in SB 42 and especially SB 46 where they dictated the game for the majority of it but failed to score more in the second half, we aren't having pissing matches on this board right now.
The Ballwashers just can't admit it. They can't. It's pathetic.
Yes, Crusty, everone is cuckoo except you. We get it.
