[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Brady record against some of our favorite teams. : This board heaped praise upon Brady as if he was the reason for all of the Pats success, just as they heaped all of the blame on Manning. Yes, the pick six will go down in infamy and Manning will have that hanging over his head forever. But no one talks about the lack of colts defense or lack of special teams. Remember Hank (no basket hands) Baskett fumbled an onside kick. He's a receiver for goodness sake. No one points out that Brees was nearly perfect for the last 2 1/2 quarters of the game. He went 24-25 with the exception of an intentionally spiked ball to stop the clock. Or that the saints went 4-4 on their last 4 possessions except for the last play of the game (kneel down). No Manning will not live that play down, but other team deficiencies were lost on this board most likely out of spite for Manning. I will say it again. No one defended Manning on this board. If you weren't bashing him, you were silent amidst the choker posts. That was the lay of the land. We can't change history now that Tommy is revealing himself in the same way.

I Think the teams themselves are more on the same level now as The D's weren't great. However, I think Peyton's worst D was better than what the Pats had last year.
I think in the earlier years the team as a whole was better for the Pats but they were winning with a first year , still wet behind the ears, QB. who could have been a detriment but instead became a hero..
Unfortunately, living up to that hero status has become difficult because the dynamic of the team has changed, and people still expect him to be that hero.
Again, Eli became the hero because no one expected anything from him.
The difference is, It's always been expected from Peyton due to his regular season success, except that in the post season, that hero rarely appeared.
Do you know that the last years, last place, Colt's teams D was better than the one the Pats brought to the SB? That one game against the Saints actually made them appear worst than they were.
To me, it's hard to put the blame on TB there when you consider the circumstance.
I'm sure all the bashers and haters will disagree, but I really don't give a dam.!
