    Solid. Grantland article on Brady/Windy OT.

    Great piece, highlighting the comeback, Brady's accuracy, the state of NE's identity, and BB's sage decision to take the wind.

    There are great points made, and they enter a context where people are currently framing the games around Brady's superior arm strength vs Manning's (there has always been a difference) in bad weather and Manning's cold finishes in low temperature settings.

    Nothing better when it comes to Brady vs Manning than somebody telling it like it is.

    Notice what the article said at the end in which Thompkins could be one of Brady's "last" team mates.  Shudder to think the day he plays his last game as a Patriot!!!

    The article points out that Blount got his bell rung on the play he fumbled. I thought that was a pretty clear helmet to helmet hit, but haven't heard that mentioned anywhere. Was I seeing things?

    those are legal when its a RB. ask Pollard and Ridley last year. he got smashed in the head, no call. he, like Rid on that play, had his head down and took a hit. it happens as an RB

    Yeah, Grantland is quickly becoming the go-to place for good football analysis. They are exceptional. This article, with its Brady's winter passing/the winter of Brady's career write up is just exceptional reflection and writing for a blog site like that.

    Yeah, but like the other posters mention, it will typically be a non-call on a RB. Vice versa RBs often initiate H2H contact against back seven defenders to the tune of no-call. 

    It was mostly a well called game. I thought if you are going to give Manning the flag on the Nink play, you have to gie Brady the flag on the Kenbrel no-call. Other than that, they were pretty good. I saw them miss one holding call against Jones, but that is the NFL.

    I see you clicked the links in my text. Great reads from Bruschi, and a decent (for ESPN) round table on Manning and cold weather.

    Love Grantland. I love an article long time ago about west coast's offense or chuck noll, I think. I forgot.

     

    Good blog. Wish Espn has this quality on their website.

    This literally made me sad......... 

    "Kenbrell Thompkins will be one of Tom Brady's last teammates, one way or another. The winter is coming. That may be a metaphor, it may not be."

     

    It's been so great having TB and BB at the sametime. 

    Let's go Pats!
