Re: Brady Delusional About Chances of Winning Another SB?

OK, just one of the dopey things I just read: Pats can't win it all because Brady is too old, and the team that is most likely to represent the AFC is Denver? Yeah, that's logical...
This goes to the Brady can't win crowd, and to the they haven't won (and won't win ever) because the GM hasn't given him the tools gang:
They came within two plays of winning two more Super Bowls, one a fluke and one just a failure to execute. If they win those games (or even one of them), Brady is unquestionably the greatest QB, if not the greatest player, of all time.
But because he didn't win those games, he can't win the big one anymore? That makes no sense.
Likewise, if they win those games (or even one of them), Bill Belichick is greater than Lombardi, greater than Halas, greater than all of 'em. And it's not real close.
But because of two plays where his players were in a position to make the plays, and just didn't, he's a failure as a GM. Sorry, that's utterly ridiculous. That is like saying Sam Jones was better basketball player than Michael Jordan because he won a few more titles.
If Tom Brady had been drafted by Cleveland, he'd have been a decent QB who would have won as many Super Bowls as me. And if Belichick had not drafted Brady, he'd have been a successful HC/GM but no way he'd have three championships and he'd probably be somewhere else by now.
In other words, they've been pretty good for each other.
