I do find it hilarious that some claim one hates BB because they simply call out his flaws; no matter how much they sing praise to his strengths.
This is a good point, Babe. There is a big difference between being critical of something that the person did not do well, versus saying the person being bad at his job.
People get all defensive for the person whose deed is being critiqued, and label the person critiquing a hater. That's how most of the flame wars get started on this boards. Can be avoided if people can remember to make the distinction described above.
That applies to critiques on BB's actions. But it should also apply to critiques on TB's actions.
Where I draw the line is when, on top of the critique, people start saying he's not the right person for the job.
So, here I go at labeling, and making sweeping conclusions based on the above...
1. You hate BB as a GM. You want that role to be done by someone else. But you want him to remain to be the coach.
2. There are some of us who scratch our heads over some of the things that BB does in coaching and drafting, it does not mean they hate BB or that they want BB to give up either role.
3. Most people who critique TB don't hate TB at QB. They (actually I am part of this) want him to continue to QB for the Pats. But they also want him to raise his game on SBs and playoff games - not make rookie mistakes. That's really what won them the 3 SB games - not the great Ds.
4. Where Rusty is with regard to #3, I am not sure. He's farther to an extreme than most. Maybe you can ask him what he wants to happen, bottomline.
I don't hate BB as a GM. He's average. I could only hate him as a GM if he were terrible.
Brady is not perfect, but there has never been a better QB. His play in the post-season remains good, but the team around him has deteriorated and often he is the only thing even remotely working. Then foolish fans condemn his play because he couldn't lift the entire team on his back yet again and win it.
