On McDaniels' recommendations, BB brought in Lloyd and Amendola from St. Louis. Neither one of them had worked out so well.
74 catches, 4 TDS and 900 yards as a 4th receiving option didn't work out well? lol
I am becoming concerned with not only some fans perceptions of what works and what doesn't at the WR position, but Tom Brady's behind the scenes end-of-season exit interviews and how that affects BB's decisions as GM here.
Personally, I don't believe all of this story anyway because the cap hit is too much for a WR who played the year with a torn groin and played solid with that kind of an injury. I am sure calls are made all around the league this time of year, though. This is just one that will create drama via the anti-BB media.
The problem really is Brady. Note how it always seems to be the WR who is at fault. The odds of it always being the WR's fault every season is becoming disturbing and painfully obvious that it isn't the WRs fault. Note how it doesn't matter who the receiver is, TE or WR, old or young, etc. There's always something Brady tries to blame elsewhere other than his own skills at the QB position.
This whole game of Brady being so demanding is destroying the team. It's been building for years. He literally has thrown games away by playing favorites and teams seeing that. He played the victim role when BB had to trade Branch, BB kissed his butt with Moss and Welker and Brady has been whining ever since 2011, even while spoiled.
It has got to stop. I am not sure it can. The same thing keeps happening via Brady.
I would agree with the brady part if it wasn't for the fact none of them but welker were productive after leaving.
again, if brady is destroying the team, then BB is doing so as well by allowing it. Explain to me why BB would allow this?
What is the answer? Trade for Aaron Rogers? Tank a season and deal Brady, take the cap hit, and hope the QB class that next year gives you someone as good as Brady?
Do you realize how stupid you sound here asking that question?
What is BB supposed to do here? Answer me that one. Instead of you asking such a stupid question, one worthy of a shortbus rider, tell the board what BB is supposed to do.
HE's tried everything from dealing Moss, to drafting two TEs with the best skills at each spot you could hope for, to walking from Welkie to prove it's the system, not Welker, etc.
When will it end? When will Brady be held accountable? When will the media ask Brady to finally be a leader and team player again? I am sure BB has had direct coversations with Brady about it, but what else can he tell a HOF QB whose ego is spiraling out of control?
I am not buying this sort of phony California crap anymore. I am just not. The smiley stuff and being nice in front of the camera ain't cutting it and it hasn't for a while for me.
It hasn't when I read about things and realize that Brady still doesn't really take responsibility for anything.
The day he says, "I am the one who is letting the team down", is the day the team will rally around him. As long as he keeps acting like he' above his teammates, like there is some other pinnacle they need to reach to get up to his standard, this is how the postseasons will be.
Even blaming Wendell for the fumbles at the end of the game in Buffalo or Atlanta which were ALL Brady's fault, was a sign of this. He said "WE" need to work on that. No, Tom. YOU need to stay in a split second longer to actually field the snap before pulling out so fast like a scared little girl who lacks focus on that play.
Throw in the media gushing over Brady playing with some strained ligament in his hand as Amendola toughs out a torn groin only to be scapegoated, yes, that's a problem to me as a fan.
Excuses for Brady an d scapegoating the others. All the media and BBWs do is just interchange the scapegoat from year to year. LAst year, Lloyd even if productive and good, and this year it's now Amendola.
Next year it will be someone else.
Wow! The idiot that has repeatedly claimed that Mallet was worth a first round pick has conviently left out the best option, if indeeed BB thinks that Brady is not running the offense in the way he wants it run. Play Mallet. Moron. He benched Kosar. Why not Brady. Unless BB thinks you're a complete idiot, just like the rest of the world does.
