[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Who would you keep, Brady or BB? : C'mon lazzie. It's not that hard to decipher. Who has been more important to the team's success? That's the bottom line question.

, ya GOTTA know my shtick by now... Neither you, whom I might end up agreeing with 10% of your takes (wrong or right on either side), IS free from complimentary acknowledgements upon me believing you hit a home run on a great notion... Neither zbellino
, whom I tend to agree with on just about 100% of the time on the literary, social, and philosophical fronts (but whom I just agree with only about 95% of the time on various takes on NE Patriots Football)- IS himself, likewise free of criticism in the 1 outta 75,000 instances that we're at odds with on our varying dual notions... Neither myself, whom I tend to recognize that I just may have slightly impartial self-interests upon, IS free of being awarded THE uptmost forms of glowing admiration towards...before wiping that hyperbole clean off the map, and trashing myself ruthlessly down to the lowest of lows (this portion's extremely reciprocal...like an unending & unbroken ellipse in design and scheme, back and forth, back and forth)...
And, likewise...and ALWAYS (and I try very hard to maintain this) in the very same fabric of absolutely equal treatment, beit the highest pillars of respected & insightful solid thoughts & stances, or the cellars of ruthless criticisms on weak self-interested badly designed platforms, Neither Tom Brady NOR Bill Belichick
, ARE either, Free from the most equal form of commondations or criticisms, just the same...
I WILL recognize and voice my perceptions on these guys, minus as many false claims, self-interested additions...or subtractions, AS I can...and I try. Viewing a person's current doings, beliefs, or ideas (and especially results) is far more important to me, than looking at them through the guised veil of things such as: the past, and the entitlements afforded me THROUGH them, somewhere..or sometime. Promises, Hopes, and Dreams of either Past Glory or Future Success, ARE all 1 in the same in my eyes on this present day: Thankable and Pointless.
I do not ommit my appreciation, and I do not blindly believe that someone else would do better at the onset of some faltered attempt somewhere...YET, I cannot be blindlingly excusatory as a result of someone's current, very largely unconnected, Recognizable shortcomings (Behavior, somewhere else perhaps/ or Action, as it relates to here on The Pats Football Field and FO Decisions).
Tom Brady in 2012...was NOT the Tom Brady I saw and came to know every where, and every time in the past... Tom Brady was STILL a better Quarterback than 95%+ of every OTHER NFL Quarterback...THIS past year. He just wasn't: The Tom Brady version of exceptionally excellent football abilities...He wasn't. His pinpoint precise accuracies on the passed ball, were just- NOT what I've come to have actually SEEN for a long time, as being: "Tom Brady Precise." They weren't. His decision-making, was NOT in affect, what I've come to have SEEN and witness as being: "Tom Brady-esque decision-making." They weren't. And even Tom Brady's pocket-prescence, was NOT- the same "6th-Sense, Eyes-behind-his-head" Tom Brady pocket prescence as old...they weren't. And it's noticeable...with clear perceptions, It IS noticeable how formerly Brady would just KNOW when and where pressure was coming, and he'd step up just 1 split second faster... Where Brady's split-second freak-of-HOF-QB-reactions resulted in defenders getting just 1 hand, or just 1 or 2 fingers on him in the past...These same reactions are just 1 split second slower to react, and we see defenders getting maybe 1 full arm instead of 1 hand, or 1 full hand instead of 1 finger...on him (with all the inevitable results which incur, regardless of the utterly simplistic: "Total Sack Line" stat).
Would I currently want ANY-one else, other THAN Tom Brady as My NE QB...? Bet'chre #ss I wouldn't.
Same with Bill Belichick... He gets NO pass on his shortcomings- Beit Belichick's Coordinators, which He ALONE, is responsible for... Beit Belichick's Draft, which I've discussed ad nauseum: NO-one...not 1 single OTHER NFL Coach starts his time at the drafting gambling table, by beginning the draft day betting, with LESS chips to play with, than Bill Belichick does... How he saunters up to the draft-day table, with this many chips, time and time again...IS astounding. Really, it's almost some act of fiction that'cha couldn't believe until it occurs in reality, time and time and time again. But, He uses his bankroll...Like Sh#t. My gahd he does...he just does. Just solely view it in terms of what one SHOULD view it in simplest terms of: Draft day bank roll (total chips and high chips of selections) verses Winning Results each time he sits down to play that at 1 single tournament (i.e. Excellent players/Winnings accumulated at the end of each tournament/Single NFL Draft)...AWFUL. 2010 Draft Year was the year I believed he had finally figured it out, and thus would use that year as a blueprint for himself on how to draft (I've authored numerous threads detailing this draft, how he excercised it, and how I recognized it as being brilliant THAT very day- "2010 NFL NE Patriots Draft- Easily The best Pats draft in a decade, and possibly longer"). But no...back to wasting chips (and their amounts) needlessly...when a lower bet WILL do- Your guy might be taken off a round or a 1/2 round earlier than his projected drafting selection target area...heck, he might even be a pure STUD that'cha missed out on in the end...But Dear GAHD- This Does NOT excuse you to have anywhere from 3, 4, 5, or even More MULTI-ROUND "Reaches" on Players just SO far away from their latter target positional areas, where way more often than not, You WOULD still be able to select them at a lesser draft selection pick price for NE...~~~Babe
, I uphold this philosophy in my everyday life, as much as I can, and as consistantly as I can...and I try. Overbearing police officer archetypal of authority & control, Executive in the tie simply exuding the airs of success and that there's nothing he can't seemingly handle- VERY same treatment...bar none, that I grant in the very same fashion, manner, and amount, at the get-go, TO: The homeless guy living on the side of the outlet store in the next town...nor even the family of feral cats outback of the condo complex's main office area.
In fact, Wishin' perhaps that I was a tad bit more role-playing in personality...maybe then, I could actually have 1 or 2 stable portions of my day-to-day mindset as it relates to me (and you guys...witness and oftentimes, subject to my own Cybills).
