Look, I agree with jri that we are NOT grateful enough about Brady, who even if he never wins another SB, may well be the greatest of all time....his like will be very sorely missed and we all know that if we are honest about it....
However I also am glad we have cut away TB's binky and think getting more deep and verticle in their passing game is what they need to do...they have decent rb's now, guys who can take the place of the short dink and dunk game, away from the "spread" offense based on a small quick guy getting open or you die on the vine.....and other teams have it all figured out, hence the losses in big games...it's NOT all on the D.
I am with you on the Welker stance. My only issues was Russ reponse right below the original post.
I don't thiink it is totally the D"s fault that they haven't closed the deal recently. As a matter of fact in the article Brady talks specificly about plays he wishes he executed in certain games. The thing that struck me in the piece was his never ending quest to be better and for him to improve to make the team better.
I have been a fan since the mid 70's and a season ticket holder since the mid nineties and he is by far the best player this team has ever seen (john hannah close 2nd) and arguably the greatest QB to play the game.
Let me put it to you this way:
If for some reason there was a an opportunity to ask him one question with one follow up, I would ask this:
1. Why do you prefer the shotgun spread so much?
2. Do you realize how you have struggled in games, in the postseason in particular,using that as the base formation, passing 40+ times, even with a lead?
I just question if he is even aware of the patterns and mountains of evidence.
And, honestly, I think BB walking from Welkie is symbolic to BB seeing this. I question whether or not BB actually saw the data until after this last playoff loss, because how can you keep using it, acting like it's not severely flawed?
Your basically asking your entire offense to execute 100% perfectly for 4 qtrs (or close to it), almost like you're on a Japanese game show or something.
Wouldn't it be easier to commit to the ground game to help your offense over those 4 qtrs?
Can anyone even name the last time we opened a game against a good defense, where we drove down the field, with a lengthy drive and we scored a TD? Even if you can find the example, we're just horrendous at keeping momentun in games with that base style offense.
Gee crusty noodle, why don't you just ask him? Pretty sure you'd get one of these and I'm
sure we'd all pay money to see it.
You didn't even read the article did you? Poor BB, nobody writing any articles on his greatness lately, except for him meeting with his friend. Trailblazing???? LMAO@U
