In Response to Re: Postseason VS SuperBowl
[QUOTE]Jay and Russ, Jay, first I agree with your premise. Great offensive play and scoring points are the key. The defense will do their part, but winning rests on the offenses shoulders this year and as you historically prove. The one comment I don't agree with your and Russ on is Brady being the reason we lost sb42. I put that more on our Oline being manhandled plus mcdaniels cocky and inflexible game plan. Bradydidnt execute well, but that would be hard to do considering he spent about 50 percent of his time either on the ground or very much hurried. Still in the end, we had a chance. The defense couldn't seal the deal. Their fault as well. You can count 3 plays on that last drive where the d had a chance to end it but couldn't.

I dont disagree that it wasnt Bradys fault, I am just saying, whatever the reason, Brady was exposed.
We passed too much, The O-line was on its heels all days, after deep balls to moss and bubble screens to wes were shut down, we were basically done, just chucking and praying. B.B. had his back to the field trying to coach up the "D while McDaniels threw the game away.
So Yes, I understand many factors went into it, but it was Brady who was made to look bad and take the blame.
He also had a bad foot and was caught by Media going to Gizelles w/ a boot on his foot. This didnt help. The Giants smelled blood.
Would I rather Tommy not have gone to N.Y. to screw Gizelle, Yes, can I understand why he did it? Hell Yeah.
Just a perfect storm for us, instead of perfect season.
