In response to leatherhelmet's comment:
Like I've said in other posts..THANK YOU TOM BRADY!!! Before you , we were the Patsies, but for the last 3 seasons, I've seen a QB who seems to have lost that "fire" that made him such and unbelievable competitor. 3 SB wins will do that to you. The fact that he continues to go to SB's and put up impressive numbers is not lost on me, but..................
Clutch TB is gone. Even without stats to back it up( and they do) you don't have the same feeling you used to when Brady had the ball needing a score to win..............
Contrary to popular belief, Brady's deep ball leaves much to be desired
He DOES NOT like to take a hit. Lets face it, no one wants to get hit but there have been times in the pocket recently which made me flash back to Tony Eason.
TB is the QB of this franchise for this season because he is still playing at a high leve and gives this team a chance at winning it all, but he is showing inevitable signs of decline and I believe we will have a new starting QB as early as 2014.
.......So is it Mallett time.......Not just yet.........JMHO
The chances of Mallett being a better quarterback than Brady are about zero. If you are a Patriots fan (and there is good reason to believe you are not), you had better pray that Brady's retirement is postponed as long as possible.
The chances of Mallet being a good NFL QB are about 5%, much less even dreaming he will be as good as Brady.
