In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
In the SF game, the O line really struggled. In many ways it was similar to the Giants' Super Bowls. I've never been one to say the offense is perfect or even that Brady is perfect. My only objection is to those posters who claim the defense played great when it didn't . . . and who think that the "solution" to (the rare) offensive problems is to "rein in Brady," abandon the shotgun, and just run more with a "lead" back who is never subbed for. That in my opinion is an overly simplistic approach that doesn't appreciate the complexity of modern football.
You are wrong, in fact there's never been anybody so wrong in the hystery of the Universe. Just admit you are a Brady bashing troll. We all know it , even as I type people are nodding there head in agreement. LMAO@U.
It's avery simple concept, Brady throws more when HE HAS TOO! It's so simple !He is not the OC or the HC. He doesn't send out no back formations, he doesn't send out Woody.
He throws when they are behind , doesn't trust the D to Hold a lead and when the running game sucks. All with the blessing of McD and BB!!!!!!!!!!. Period!
No body in their right mind believes your propaganda and out right lies.
Now do US ALL a favor and get a life. Leave your basement and BDC for good.
Sick, sick, sick.
He does what's best for the team. I have no idea why they would even need an OC, if he's not calling the plays.
Still waiting on those elusive stats. Prove it or shut the he11 up!
You're wrong. You trying to quote me in an attempt to mock me, will not work.
WHy do you continue to push this issue when everyone knows you're wrong? 90% of the time when Brady throws 40+ times in a shotgun spread base, we lose vs good or great Ds.
Go look at the drives for Indy in their SB v.s. the Bears. They WON that SB because they handed it off a ton to either Addai or Rhodes, but they didn't change how they ran their offense based on who was on the field.
You either don't get it or want to continue to be selfish with your buddies, simply unable to admit how wrong you are.
Just because it's an offensive era and a QB league, it doesn't mean you over-think or over-manage the basics!
The basics will never change, whether it's blocking, tackling, deception, etc. We have little to no deception in our awful, sedentary shotgun base spread.
If this happens again this postseason, what will you do here? Act like it didn't happen again?
Brady has 19 TDs and 13 INTs since 2005 in the postseaosn if you take away his best and worst games (to be fair, those are outlier games - Balt in 2009, Denver 2011).
That's horrendous and in almost all of those games, he threw over 40 times, and it wasn't because they were trailing, either. SD in 2006, yes, no issue there. They panicked in Denver in 2005, but to be fair Dillon wasn't available. The 2006 AFC title game is one that stands out. AFC Title game vs SD, SB 42, etc.
In 2010 vs the Jets, it was a low scoring game, but they panicked for some reason and the downfall was that they never tried to run it. They intended to blow the Jets off the field by passing it almost exclusively, which ironically IS NOT how they beat the Jets just a month earlier!
And we know what happened last year.
You lost. Limiting yourself and your playbook is absolutely assinine and that is what you're clearly rooting for so Brady can just run shotgun spread plays, hope the O line is 100% perfect dropping back to pass block 40+ times, and you ignore how that style HURTS our defense!
