It is also a sign that he totally understands BB and how he approaches the game. Brady and BB are mind melded together and they help drive the team.
Brady is not the same as when he was younger. I personally think he is smart and better but in AFCCGs he has not clicked in a while. Remember we have been to 3 straight AFCCGs. That does not happen if Brady is not the quarterback. He does not call the plays or pick the players around him. All Qb's make mistakes and miss passes.
At the end of the day, I don't wish we had another QB playing here instead of Brady. He is a team player, he does a lot of charity work, he is humble and he is a leader. His passion for the game is obvious even on a TV screen. The difference between being great and being just OK on any given day is inches or less.
This discussion is totally different if Samuels intercepts the pass, Tyree doesn't make the once in a lifetime catch, Welker catches the ball/Brady throws a better pass (take your pick), kicks were not made at the end of the superbowls we won.
Enjoy the time we have with Brady...it will be too soon when we will only be able to say "Brady would have made that pass or brought our team back" and "I was there when Brady threw touchdown to Moss", etc.
Football is a team game and Brady gets it... why do the posters think it is one persons fault?
We have an improved D and hopefully a better O than last year. If so we will be in AFCCS or Superbowl and if the season breaks well with injuries and luck we will be the champs again. Other than Seahawks, 49ers, and Broncos can any of the other 28 teams say that?
