In response to mthurl's comment:
No need to try to convince them otherwise?? Then why do you run around here half the day like you are the GM Police? And the way you discount how the coach and Brady have factored into our success is beyond ridiculous. I guess Patrick Chung is the reason why we have won so much. LOL!
I have less than half the post count you do and my account has been active for more than half the amount of time yours has. I would hardly qualify that as running around here half the day unless you think that applies to yourself as well. I haven't discounted the effect that Brady and coach Belichick have had on our team at all. I just think it's ridiculous to claim that because of the two of them alone we go to the AFC championship every other year and have been to 5 Super Bowls. The Patrick Chung comment is a strawman and you know it.
And I stand by my comment that I'm not trying to convince some of the people on this board. Do you honestly believe that Babe or Rusty are going to change their opinions because of anything they read here? I don't. I'll still disagree with both of them when they post things I think are ridiculous because there are some people here that are worth debating with so I'll put my opinion out there.
If you think defending coach Belichick from some of the claims that he should be canned as GM makes me the "GM Police" then I don't find that title to be particularly insulting.
My argument is stronger than Babe's for many reasons:
1. I fully realize like a rational and educated adult, a light switch fix does not occur overnight in life, whether it be economics or building 53 man roster that basically fields an ALl Star team like this club had in general from 2003-2007.
That's for starters. No GM is perfect, but there hasn't been a better one in such a tough era for GMs, than BB himself. He made Bill Polian look like Mickey Mouse and still does.
2. Brady has underperformed SINCE 2007 in the postseason, and if you want to go back to 2005 when he threw that god awful floater to Champ Bailey for the gamechanging pick 6, you can do that. BB did not force Brady to make that decision or throw in that position. Since that game, it's almost a gimme Brady will do that in the AFC Title game or SB now every year. It's just a matter of WHEN that mindnumbingly stupid throw or decision is made, where you hope it;s just ONE and not more than one.
3. This team was in the SB in 2011 and in back to back AFC title games since then, with only major injuries to very key gamechanging positional players factoring into why they probably lost those games. For example, if NE had just Talib and Gronk available, they probably beat Denver. That's not even counting Vince, KElly, Spikes, etc, etc.
I am good with understanding these facts. Babe is not. He wants a black and white answer for his small pea brain to handle, which is also why he's a right wing nutjob deluxe. People like that need to see things in black and white t process things very simply for their simpleton brains. Mt Hurl is another. TFB12 and Pezzy are two more. You know the group. THey are totally incapable of critical thinking and being rational. It's 12 year old boy syndrome. We were all there once. ONCE. Then, we grew up and became adults, realzizng it wasn't all about the QB. Babe and his group are stuck in that 12 year old boy mindset, not having a clue that football is the greatest team sport on the planet, next to hockey of course.
If you talk to any sports fan in Chicago, where you live, go ask them about Brady. They have Cutler, so they would kill for Brady. But, maybe you have some friends who are Bears fans. Ask them what they see different in Brady. A smart fan will tell ya. I live in NC now. I hear it all the time. What happened to Brady these Panthers (and others) fans ask. What happened? When I lived there, people were in awe of him. Brady and the Pats had just executed 3 SBs in 4 years and people were in awe with how cool and collected Brady was leading the offense. Now that you live there, I can guarantee you that charm Brady had has a player has completely faded. He's old news and much of it is because of his own play himself in the postseason for years and years and years now.
Our D will be top notch this year and they could allow 10 or less points per game in the postseason and the Brady Ball Slobeer Club will still somehow blame BB as Brady throws 2 INTs and misses a myriad of open receivers to lose the title game or SB.
The fact is, BB has been incredible throughout all of this. Teams that finish with a top 3 record every year, literally EVERY year, and still don't fade, are historical in the cap era. We have FAs banging down the door to come here, UDFAs in awe of being asked to come here, etc. Why? Not Brady. Belichick. We owe it all to him.
The offense, Brady's preferred version, to make fireworks on national to chase Manning, has compromised the greater team goal which is winning it all. That's what happened. BB listened to Brady after 2006, gave him what he asked for and Brady crapped on numerous golden chances. That's what has happened here. It's a fact.
I am still not convinced his bad habits he's developed since 2007, are completely correctable, if at all.
We will see. But, make no mistake. We'll win another SB with other key players being a big part, not just some guy named Brady.
You are the LAST person on this board capable of critical thinking. I wouldn't even put you at the 12 year old level. I wouldn't even put you on a 12 year old dogs level. Logic totally evades you.
There is so much wrong with your statements that it would take a PHD to figure them out. In fact I let my aunt who is a psychologist read some and 'That boy needs a lot of help" , was the first words from her mouth.
Your whole existence resolves around "BB RULES and Brady, Drools.
But the weird thing is, it's not really NOT about them. It's about you.
Who you like, what you think, how superior you are to others............YOU YOU YOU
You have the most irrational way of thinking, I've ever encountered.
Please explain how a team is not all about Brady but is all about Brady?
Please explain how the wins are bb's good coaching/gm but the losses are all Brady's fault?
Bb has no fault in the losses, only the wins?
Do you see that you...you...your opinion is fvcked?
It's about time you do too before someone ships you off to Uzbekistan, where they still practice compulsory sterilization for the mentally ill.
Either that or I'm sure, any run of the mill vet would take care of it.
Is that a critical enough, thought for you?
