In response to SLGDEV's comment:
I am sooooo tired of nearly every thread turning into a personal battle between posters with one insulting the other and back again. Please guys/gals. how about FOOTBALL????
I am also sooooo tired of attacks on Brady and BB. We Pats fans have been so very lucky these past thirteen seasons. (I lived through the Patsy years since '67). How can anyone knock a sure fire, unanimous, first ballot entry into the HOF when he becomes eligible and one of (if not the) greatest QBs of all time? And BB? Success speaks for itself -- and those know-nothings that think if you didn't win the SB every year, that your team stinks should just shut up
I ask all RESPONSIBLE posters to simply put the idiots into their ignore list. Then we might avoid all the garbage back and forths. Please guys, this is not a size of your you-know-what contest. Just ignore them
Oh, and since 2001 the Pats have won 9 of eleven division titles and tied for two (and missed the playoffs by tiebreakers. Also, their playoff record is 18-8. I call that success.
The problem is Bustchise has about 20-30 rotating board names, so it won't work. The real problem is the moderating system here. There is no moderator, apparently.
If they allowed us to vote for one, a regular poster here and that person wanted to do it, this problem would be solved.
Say, for example, Muzwell could be a mod. He's wise enough to know who the trolls are and he could just delete account just by glancing in here daily. It's so simple, but the morons at the Globe won't allow the real fans to post here in peace.
There would be no Bustchise, because it's blatantly obvious who he is with his board name selections and schtick in here. As for Gunty, he'd be gone as well never to be allowed back. Same deal with Underpants.
As for the BBWs who stalk me in here because I am honest about Brady's subpar postseason play in recent years, most notably in title games, that's their problem that they can't utter those words. We will never win anything with him playing like that just like Denver with Manning pukking all over his goofy white and orange cleats.
They should get a warning if they continue to behave the irrational way they do, and if they can't admit Brady needs to improve and want to keep trolling, then they too are gone from here.
If those things happened, this board would be great.
What I find amazing is, none of this is possible without Kraft and BB. Brady is the 3rd person involved, but he's not the root of this magical run. It's really Kraft and BB. For some reason the BBWs can't handle that fact and truth. But, the BBWs took the anti-media bait years ago because Tony Mazz told them to, amongst others.
So, here we are.
Look at the threads right up until recently blaming BB for building great teams in recent years. Every pundit out there is picking Denver or the Pats to go to the SB and it would probably be a lot more picking the Pats if not for the built in anti-BB bias that exists. Yet, somehow Babe, Mt Hurl, TCal, RKrap, TFB12 and the other morons want to lecture the board on how BB is an average GM. They do that because they know they can't get away with sounding dumb in saying he's an average coach, too, so the say that about his personnel work because they know they can get away with it. An injury here or there to key people at bad times is why they came up short in some of these situations. When they won SBs, those things weren't happening.
I could see if this team was missing the playoffs like the Giants, Steelers, Ravens, etc, other teams that won a SB more recently, but the Pats aren't. Sadly, those teams got much better QB performances in their postseason runs than we did. That is what we need. No ifs, ands or buts about it.
This team is so loaded now, it's almost embarrassing yet somehow if Brady manages to continue not to play well like Gomer Manning is known to do, they will troll and scapegoat BB for it, which is clearly trolling..
So many changes have occurred, too. It's an offensive league with scoring way up, rules to favor the offense, a cap that didn't move for the last 5 years of its life, etc.
This is not the same era as 2004. Some have never accepted that and some never realized the things I warned about going into that lockout. They're like little children who don't like being told "no".
Sure sounds like they're the ones with issues, attaching their wagons to whatever Bustchise and Gunty want to throw towards BB's directions with their own personal agendas.
But, make no mistake, their agendas align. Oh, yes they do.
would you stop telling lies? on the recent "you call it thread" I posted a Pats SB victory. I have always and emphatically praised BB as the best coach in the NFL, perhaps top 3 in its history. I have posted of BB being a great GM, even though I have not agreed with his free agency decisions and feel his drafts have been league average. This has been backed up with countless analysis that has been posted on this very board.
I get it. If it's BB. you are smitten, hook, line and sinker. Some of the smarter posters here dont think BB walks on water, and there are some decisons that we did not agre with.
THat is not trolling. THat does not make us a Pats hater. It is very obvious with your Brady venom, you are the troll and hater. No one speaks of BB as poorly as you speak of Brady
With that, 50% of the BB critics are actually against YOU, not BB. YOur the reason for the BB criticism here
