This nonsense about Brady and his late game performance has been already debunked.
First - IT'S ESPN'S QB RATING, NOT THE REAL ONE, that was pointed out. Nobody even knows outside of ESPN what the formula for that crap rating is.
Second: Looking at this season I noted:
"Arizona game, 5:42 left. Pats get ball on own 18.
Brady hits 8 of 10 passes for 84 yards and a TD to Gronk. That's a 135 passer rating. And that includes hitting on a 3rd and 12 after getting sacked on 2nd down.
Ravens game, 4:01 left. Pats ball on their 20.
They run Ridley on the drive 3 times. He gets 5 total yards for a 1.6 yard average on the drive. Thanks for NOTHING running game! Balance my ase.
Brady misses one, then hits Weler for 11. Ratbirds get called for a 15 yard penalty.
1st and 10 Baltimore 45. Ridley gets ONE yard! Brady gets sacked on 2nd down. He can't hit the pass on 3rd and 16. Pffft.
The running and blocking stank. Brady did okay considering he got zero help.
Seahawks 1:14 left, Pats 20 yard line.
Brady gets sacked on 2nd down. Can't connect on 3rd and 17. Hits Welker on 4th and 17 for 15 yards, just a tad short.
I have no idea what some of you expect from Brady. HE is the last person to be blaming in these situation. How about a decent run or two? How about some O-line play?
When Brady can't always pull off some sort of miracle when everybody around him is stinking the f'n place out, too many of you immediately point at him.
LEARN THE GAME"
Brady is the only one doing anything at the end of these games. They can't run, they cxan't block, they can't stop the other guys passing. Hell, they can't even kick.
To all who have these silly notions - your perception comes from your unrealistic expectation that Brady must somehow magically win the endgame while everybody else stands by and watches him. He is great, but needs at least decent play from the guys around him.
