In response to anonymis' comment:
no backpedaling and spinning required. You simply didn't understand what people were saying. It's your MO. you take something out of context and twist it to make things like it were all Brady's fault.
You basically have your vesion of the “7 Degrees of Kevin Bacon” drinking game except for you, it's the "7 degrees of Blaming Brady" drinking game. What a tard. Anyone with common sense knows that that the 2 SB losses were a team failure, including bad planning and coaching by BB and the coaching staff. On top of that, give the NYG a little credit here. They made the one or two extra plays that the Patriots couldn't.
Oh, I understand. I understand very well how the media has brainwashed some of our own fans to the point they've become so irrational, believing that ihe sn't a good GM and always blame BB while Brady plays in a subpar fashion and makes some horrendous on field decisions.
I don't care if it's the 4th and 2 in Indy. A god awful spot of the ball is also BB's fault.
I blame the entire offense, the OC with the playcalling and yes, Brady in an offensive era in the offense that he's wanted. I blame that offense a lot more than I blame young kids brought together as part of a new D learning together as one as they go. Yep. I sure do. Most normal people do.
Week 17 2007:
BB: "Good day to throw, huh"?
Brady: "When 'isn't it' a good day to throw"?
Whether you want to accept it or not, BB was giving Brady what he wanted and then some after 2006 when BB had to let Branch walk. Moss and Welker, and a whole lot of shotgun spread.
"I prefer the shotgun spread" - T. Brady 2010
So, yes, this is why I feel our QB preferring a certain formation and being entrusted with it, to the run of 8 TDs and 9 INTs in AFC title games since the 2006 playoffs, is a MAJOR PROBLEM. Read that again. A good TD/INT ratio for a QB should be 2:1. That's an inverted ratio!
His overall postseason numbers since your favorite 2005 referenced point season is also poor. It's not a 2:1 TD//INT ratio, I can tell you that. It's something more like 27 TDs and 17 INTs (that's before his 2 INTS this AFC title game). So, make that 28 TDs and 19 INTs. NOT GOOD. That's a lot of INTs. That's Brett Favre, which is why he's completely overrated.
God forbid it's considered a bigger problem than 4th rd pick Jonathan Wilhite not morphing into Ty Law by 2009.
Pretty freakin simple.
7 degrees my asz. Brady's ego became out of control in 2007, going into SB 42, he lost all of 2008 and tried to recapture glories in 2009. BB saw it early in 2010, dealt Moss.
2011 happens off a lockout with limited camp and Brady is trying to do it all himself yet again, with this apparent attitude of superiority, that he can do it all himself. So obvious.
It went on for most of 2011, to the point, he was having his worst year since 2002 throwing INTs at an alarming rate.
None of this has anything to do with BB as a GM. None of it. Meanwhile, Brady is off in Brazil dancing, building mansions in OJ Simpson's old neighborhood when he used to be in Foxborough working out with the Branches, the Givens, the Pattens, etc. When was the last time he won the offseason award? 2003?
Real Pats fans could care less about bloated regular season stats for him against bad Ds. All I need to know is the MAJOR PROBLEM that is his postseason performances. Shoot me for choosing to look at that PROBLEM first and foremost over BB's wise move to build his new D and overall team mostly via the draft due to unknown financial parameters into a lockout.
You or no one is going to change my opinion on this, so just forget it. He's had numerous chances to back up his comments about caring about winning another ring, most recently a much cleaner 4th qtr in SB 46.
That gameplan from BB was quite good, but it doesn't get recognized because of two our best players melting down when the chips were on the table.
And, it's not debatable. Each played poorly in that 4th qtr and just faded away. Don't think for a second BB didn't walk from Welker partly due to his drops, too. No doubt that played into that lowered offer from the 8 mil.
Welker had 24 drops this year in that shotgun spread garbage. 24.
lmao. Your irrational response says it all. You are a genius in your own mind.
