I'd be glad to blame Brady if it were his fault...it would make things much simpler. Here's the problem (this one guy) and here's the solution - replace said guy. It's not Brady and its not one guy.
This team really does have a handful of guys starting that just aren't very good - it happens. It's hard to fill your roster with 52 really really good players. I think over the course of the last five years we've had more like nine starters that are really good players as opposed to say around 12 that were really good. Brady would be in those numbers on both occasions, it's just that he needs to play outstanding to make up for the difference - against playoff teams that is not always possible.
I didn't mean Brady. I should've titled it Pats/Playoffs.I think BB/Brady are great,future HOF'ers and I'm thankfull they coach/play for the Patroits.But the fact remains they are 6-6 in last 12 playoff games. It's pretty simple,TB has a bad game-we loose . Every one knows that.No one else can bail out the offense.The defense is just awful.No pass rush,linebackers can't cover anyone & our secondry ............!!!
Explain how this D is "awful". It's the youngest D in the league and it looks quite good to me, and for years to come, too. This is where you slip up and expose yourself as a troll. I actually thought you weren't at first, but it's apparent you are.
if ANY QB in the postseason has a bad game, especially the ones he's had like vs the Jets or the Ravens or in the SB, ANY team will lose.
It's not like he's not responsible for god awful INTs at the worst possible times. If he's not, who is? Belichick? BB is somehow responsible for Brady's awful decisions and throws? Really? Explain that.
It's a QB league, dumbo. If Gomer Manning throws 2 or 3 INTs in 2004, and Indy loses, why did they lose? Because he threw multiple INTS!!! That's why. It's also FAR easier to play QB in this era than it was in 2004. FACT.
You can't breathe on a QB, drives get extended, there is never holding called, etc, etc, etc.
All of a sudden WHY we used to mock Gomer changes in 2012 because it's Brady? It's so hypocritical. Our board is littered with absolute frauds as NFL fans.
The QB is a goalie in hockey or an ace on the mound in baseball. As he goes, so does the team. PERIOD.
The playoffs have good teams in them. This isn't Sept or Oct where Brady or any QB lays an egg and the D can battle to keep the team in the game. The level of separation
It's why we won 3 SBs for chrissakes, you morons! BB and his players were the masters of doing the small things right, waiting for the other team to screw up. Did any of you even watch those SB winning seasons? I did. And, I know WHY we won. Brady didn't combust into mindnumbling stupid decisions from his role as QB in those playoff years.
Isn't that something! Me, as a Pats fan, intelligent, not infatuated by stats and fantasy football, easily led by anti-BB rubes, knows exactly why we won those SBs and how we win again.
You ignorant cuss. The difference in the SB years is Brady didn't HAVE to do it all.
For the past 5 years he has because the Pats defense is and has been repulsive.
No one in their right mind would say no 3 & outs, no turn overs, no stopping the gints in their own territory even once, giving up long bombs to lose the game repeatedly, on the field for 2/3rds the game is good Defensive play. Honestly if it were any other team woulde you think that crap was good. Your delusional as I have seen you call defenses that are MUCH better than the Pat's, not good. Denver ring a bell? That defense doesn't give up 4th quarter TD's , period. But they suck and the Pats are good?
Do you even know the difference between good/bad or right/wrong? Nobody can tell.
Stop making excuses for the debacle of a D and realize how hard it is to win (especially when you don't have support from the D), and have to carry the team, period.
If you can't see the REAL coorelation between TB and PM is that horseface never had a D and TB hasn't for 5 years, than you are as pathetic as the bottom of the barrel defense.
No wonder you relate to them, and try to deflect how pathetic they have been.
It's the story of your life.
This is the real world: 31st ranked D is bad..... 1st ranked O is good. Got it?
What kind of sick person devotes his whole life to bashing one of if not the best to ever play and makes excuses for some of the worst defenses even known to man? Cancer!
Get some Chemo, fast! You're at least a stage 5.
