Going on air and saying Brady "sees ghosts", implying that he doesn't know what he's doing is derogatory, period.
If one of our players was on record on the air mocking another great player, you trollish tools would be in here making a federal case out it.
You two (UD6 and Gunty) are such hypcrites.
The thing is, I agree with Ryan Clark in the analysis, but I knew it 3-4 years ago. It's nothing new here.
If healthy, I don't think the shotgun spread base components (with Gronk) is completely stoppable, but that just shows how one dimensional our offense is, but by design.
It's not like we never saw BJGE have a big game or Ridley, or other people not named Welker or Gronk.
This is like the 3rd public acknowledgement of a player or coordinator telling us how they stop us, when we already should know it after years of seeing how to do it.
He's wrong on Amendola, though. And it's very ironic a guy with a seroious disease is calling Amendola "fragile" because he hurt himself in the opener of 2011. Welker blew his leg out in 2009, but it just happened to be at the end of the year.
Finally, as someone posted, the Rams dome turf is rated as one of the hardest and worst in the NFL.
It's not like Ryan Clark is Mr. Durable. He's Mr. Mouthy and Mr. Jealous, though.
Will be fun watching the Steelers miss the postseason for the second year in a row.
but I knew it 3-4 years ago.
yet somehow Bellichick didn't or didn't do anything about it and worse let it continue 3-4 years
does this honestly make sense to you?
Considering BB dealt Moss in 2010, BB saw it too. I just said they panicked after the 1st two drives not in an exclusive shotgun spread.
In 2011, things were going great with BJGE running amuck, but when he went down with turf toe pretty much until December, they didn't entrust Ridley (which is fine), but they should have turned BJGE loose in the SB because you would have lost in that 4th qtr if they had.
Pretty clear here.
Basically, I disagree with the subbing of the RBs to dictate matchups and the lack of establishing a run game against the better Ds.
I think BB defers to Brady in terms of wanting Brady to be comfortable with what he prefers, and it has backfired.
So, by early 2010, with the trade of Moss, there is no question in my mind that symbolizes BB seeing it like many of us did.
The addiction to chasing 2007's stats was cooked in 2009. BB then drafted two TEs in 2010 and dealt Moss.
That proves BB saw it too. It's the deviation or lack of patience in the playcalling or the over-manipulation to sub backs to run plays set up for specific backs DURING the game, out of the shotgun, is where I disagree.
And you know what? I was right. Twice. Last year in the AFC title game and SB and this year in the AFC title game.
Brady is a WORSE QB in the shotgun than he is under Center. He is also worse when we don't commit to some variation of a run game from a traditional offense. You can't get a run game going from a gimmick offense. It doesn't work. A wrinkle is not a base, so even when they used the hurry up, it doesn't have the same effect as "Yep, we will establish a run on you".
BB just walked from Welkie and it's not because of 2 million in difference from what Denver offered, either.
So, he sees it, it just didn't go as smoothly as one would have hoped and clearly the Gronk injury has to be included in what they had at their disposal.
What's funny about you is you got blind lucky twice in two SBs and you act like you didn't. Tyree was never again seen in the NFL and Gronk hurt in SB 46 allowed for you to win. It's that simple. Not to mention, a Brady/Welker failure as buddies in the 4th.
