In response to mthurl's comment:
Kind of torn on how I feel about Lloyd...I thought he was an average signing, average/slightly above average player...and I think both the signing and the player turned out to be more than we've come to expect from off season moves of late. Typical of us he was a low risk move, that turned into a one year rental that we have to replace (see - Carter, Waters, Anderson)...these are the best free agents we've signed over the last five years by far. I think this approach is getting old and it does little to improve the team moving forward - it puts a lot of pressure on your QB to win games too.
They're not base players, though. This is what makes you an incredible hypocrite. The Jets, Ravens, etc, with horrendous cap management swap out huge swaths of their roster and they you pretend Waters or Carter or now Lloyd somehow majorly affected our team, which is false.
You would not even be referecing these names if some guy named Welker didn't drop easy bals or Brady played a bit better.
Just give it up already. You're talking out of both sides of your mouth. You just said last month you wish BB did what the Jets did into the lockout, which was to buy the base of a roster on both sides of the ball.
You just said that. You're a moron.
These small signings are meant to be slight infusion players, not major impact players. They're meant to help in small, impactful ways, but they aren't meant to be the reason why we win. Tom Brady, Welker, our TEs, Logan Mankins, etc, all disappear in the big games. They either underperform or are inconsistent. These guys are the ones making the big bucks, yet they're WORSE in the postseason.
Carter, Waters, Ellis, Lloyd, insert name here is not why our best players SUCKED with the chips on the table.
You act like Brady's awful decisions, INTs or Welker's drops are good things. Those are our best players! Christ!
If Tim Thomas wins a Vezina or is a finalist in 2011 and then lays eggs in the postseason, that means Thomas didn't get it done. You're the moron who would run and try to blame Chris Kelly or Daniel Paille to try to mask the reality.
Christ! Make it stop! We have the most moronic pink helmet fans of any NFL pink helmets ever.
This proves that Ocho wasn't as bad as many claimed. There is this anonoying stigma that some WR has to come in here and rescue Brady from his horrendous flaws against the better Ds. We have LLloyd who has 74 receptions, almost 1000 yards and 4 TDs and all of a sudden this is why our offense dribbles out 13 points at home in a AFC title game in an offensive era.
Cannot be made up.
Truthfully the more you write, the more utterly clueless you prove yourself to be. You make it seem as if free agency is a small portion of team building, just like how you cast aside second round busts as little bumps in the road. And you have a massive double standard - any other organization that drafted a Patrick Chung, Rasi Dowling, Jermaine Cunningham, Butler, Brace...or signed/traded for Ocho Cinco, Fenne, Haynesworth, Gallery, Stallworth, Gaffney, Addai, Gregory, Fred Taylor, Shiancoe (and many more), you'd be laughing your AZ$ off. Instead you applauded all these moves while bashing the best player on the team.
You clearly are delusional and don't watch football. At least be consistent when you go around bashing every other team in the NFL...at least know what you're talking about. When all these free agents (and the free agency period in general) fail, it hurts our chances of winning Super Bowls...it wastes years of the best QB the NFL has.
I think it's ridiculous for you to criticize Brady the way you do - it shows just how little you know about football and it's laughable. You make it seem like it's easy to put up 30 points every week (should be expected)...you make it sound like throwing for over 4k yards and 30 touchdowns can be done by backups. How many interceptions does this guy throw a year? 10? Easy, right? Bawahaha! And how many times should this guy be sacked, but he side steps out of the way and completes passes to his third option? Yeah, everyone can do that, right? Yeah every quarterback can throw screens, outs, ins, slants, posts, comebacks and get pummeled week, after week without a single complaint...right? And we would make the playoffs every year without this guy and our defense, correct? Because that is what he has done - given us a chance every...single... year. Every one of them. Year after year this guy is in the top 3 at his position - no one has been able to say that - every other QB has had at least one bad season...not this guy. This guy hasn't even had two bad games in a row in his entire career - Bledsoe would go weeks without being able to hit a simple swing pass.
I really think you're screwed up. Seriously.
It's amazing, the comment's he makes are just amazing. Welker and Brady have been the Patriots best players on offense for several years, heck they have been at or vey near the top of the list of best players in the league for several years, yet he expected them to have perfect games every single game. Wake up! Even the best players don't have perfect games all the time. It's rare to play a perfect game. If you have to have your best players, who are among the best players in the league, have perfect games to win then there is something seriously wrong with the other players/erea's on the team.
I seriously think the guy just doesn't understand football...it's as simple as that. Well he does have other issues too, but it would take years of therapy to get to the bottom of that.
I understand it a lot better than you, Mt Puuke. Go look at Brady's 2007 AFC title game stat line. You were probably cheeering when he threw his 3rd INT.
You probably thought it didn't matter that he tossed the INT in SB in a back and forth, close game like that.
Also, his high, poor throw to Welker wasn't a poor throw but a good throw to a wide open WR. lol
Just super dee duper play from our best player on offense, who happens to be our QB. lmao
Yes, you really know the game. The quarterback has no responsibility and players who are paid far less, less talented or less important in the game somehow hold more responsibility than a player who touches the ball on every offensive play.
You sure have a high IQ, Mt Puuke.
It's a team sport, you don't get that. Instead you talk about players "making far less"...Ocho was making 7 million, Shaun Ellis was making four, Haynesworth was making 2.5, Mayo had just inked his 40 million dollar deal, Wilfork was making 8 million...none of these guys did anything in that Super Bowl. If it weren't for Brady we wouldn't even be in the post season. Fact.
The thing that makes me laugh the hardest is how you talk about "team building" and yet place the blame on one guy. We could go out and sign Terrel Owens right now and you would applaud it! You would go on for days about value, experience, BB laying in the weeds! You are a very distorted individual...clueless as well.
Trust me when I say this, if Tom Brady was our problem I'd be the first one to say it. He isn't, its the guys they have around him - defense especially.
