    if you want to blame the defense for everything, go right ahead babe....but if you cant admit that brady's play has fallen off in the big games, then you are just clueless. the stats do not lie.

     




    I admit when the team can't block, run or catch Brady is sometimes unable to pull the game out for them. He's human. Never said he wasn't.

     

     




    such a cop out reply, i swear you will blame anyone just to deflect blame from brady. you probobaly have even thought things up like blaming the fans at the super bowl for taking too many pictures while brady is trying to throw the ball and messing up his vision....just stop it already. they had sub-par games in sb 42, sb 46 and in this past afc title game, brady is not excluded from the responsibility. when you are the face of the franchise, and your team loses like that, espescially when you cant score a single point in the 2nd half, yes you deserve part of the blame.

     

     




    Nonsense.

     

    The problem is people like you look to Brady to bail the team out when they play badly. He just doesn't do that all the time. Nobody does.

    You mention his sub par game in SB 42, but fail to note the 5 sacks and 15 or so more hits he had to take because of poor line play. You ignore his last minutes drive for a score to give us a lead. This is just one example of why you are FOS Rusty. SB 46 with a 91 passer arting and 2 TDs with one pick is nothing to criticize (much better numbers without the desperation drive the D collpase forced on him). Again, this shows you are FOS Rusty.

     




    ill give you that he played decent in super bowl 46, he actually played very well up until the hernandez td, and then it went south until the drive where the welker drop happened. but the int he threw was horrible judgement on his part and the safety was just mindblowingly dumb. yes, the giants d-line had good games in both of the super bowls, you are right, but there were plenty of times where he had enough time to throw and just missed his mark. but its not about bailing the team out, i could see what you were saying if the game was a shootout and brady had to put up tons of points to keep the team in the game, but that wasnt the case. in both games, the defense did a good job keeping the giants off the board..brady needed one more score in both of those games and he would have 5 rings, but it just didnt happen. 21 and 17 points shouldnt be too difficult for an offense as loaded as the pats to score...i mean didnt brady laugh when some giant player said the pats would score 17 points in super bowl 42? well, they didnt even score 17.

    I'm inviting you, Babe and anyone else to name the GM's that pick all winners... I suspect you all will continue to ignore this request and keep arguing without providing any specific examples?!

    [QUOTE]

    Wozzy, as I said, it isnt the players chosen, it is the philosophy of always chasing the "value" when "performance" is needed.

    Of course we will see what happens when the pads are on, but I for one was disappointed that DT was not addressed, and the team traded back rather than forward to take one. Cant I express that opinion here?  

    BB is about league average with the draft, everyone has said that.  Pre 2010, his drafts were not good, 2010 thru last year he has greatly improved.  

    Repeat, repeat, repeat. BB is a great coach. Maybe the best in NFL history. He is a great GM, maneuvering the cap better than anyone. I have not been in agreement with his drafting and free agency philosophy.

    Does that answer your chirp? 



    No actually you and Babe did exactly what I thought you would; deflect.

    Give us three GM's that are better than BB at picking talent, if he is "average" at best than this shouldn't be too difficult?

    You didn't ask me to name a better GM. You asked me to name GMs who picked all winners. I answered what you asked. 



    So if he's average, than who is better, I mean if there are 32 teams than there must be 15 or more that are better, give us three so we can dissect their picks and make this argument look as silly as it really is?

    I said pre 2010 I thought he had a stretch that he did a poor job. Since 2010 I would say Baalke, Ozzie, Reese, Schneider, Thompson, Colbert, Loomis off the top of my head...

    Re: Reiss's Mailbag

    Rusty's right, all of these guys you mention miss the playoffs a fair amount, whereas Belichick never does.  

    You can trumpet that Belichick inherited such and such players, but with no Richard Seymour the Patriots win no rings, oh and that Brady guy he drafted had something to do with it also. 

    Also it's worth noting that Pete Carroll inherited those same players and did nothing...

    You asked for 3, I gave you 5...others have chimed in they feel BB has deficiencies when drafting (as every one does)...

    No one here is going to do a study, but it has been done...Pats around league average, slightly above.

    To say BB was better than average pre 2010 is simply false.

    Re: Reiss's Mailbag

    The Giants and Steelers have each had 2 top 15 picks in the last 10 years.  The Pats have had 1.  In fact, both the Giants and Steelers had a #15.   All 3 teams had 1 top 10 pick in that timeframe.

    These are the facts.  Although the Giants have missed the playoff more often than the Pats they have hardly been drafting at the top of the first round.

    Thank you.  Excellent post which exposes those who feel Colbert or Reese are in BB's class.

     

     




    Not so fast.   I supplied the facts in because they are beyond dispute.  Everything else is opinion.

    These facts also run counter to your earlier statement:

    "Well, when you go 7-9 or 8-8 and miss the playoffs every 2 years, you can the  opportunity to pick "WRS or Pass rushers off trees".

    LMAO

    Would you prefer BB tanks a season to get a top 10-15 pick?"

    Neither the Giants or Steelers have been drafting top 10 talent any more frequently that the Pats over the last 10 years.

    I do not agree with that list at all.  First of all Baalke was not GM in 2010, but for the others have you actually looked at who half of these guys have drafted since 2010?

    Since 2010 BB has brought in via the draft Gronk, Hernandez, DMC, Spikes, Mesko, Solder, Ridley, Jones, Hightower and Dennard who have all made contributions to the team and gotten some good playing time.  Go through that list of yours and tell me for each guy what players they brought in that is superior to this list.  There is no way you can do it for Thompson, Loomis and Colbert and I don't think you can do it for Reese either.  Baalke you can't really compare because he wasn't GM in 2010 although I will point out that if BB drafted a WR in the first round that didn't record a single catch half of this board would have an aneurysm.

    Schneider and Ozzie have had some nice picks recently, but it all comes and goes (Ozzie had a dry spell at one point too).

    I didnt say Baalke was GM in 2010. I said BB was not very good at all pre 2010, and since 2010 I would put these GM's right up there with BB...

    Wozzy said to name 3 GM's that are as good...he didnt say name 3 GM's that draft well.
