In Response to Re: Tom Brady is on pace to..... : All true except in 2007 he got Brady and Moss with an epic series of moves, so that's not a failure. Branch held out in 2006 which through a fly in the ointment. BB then addressed it in 2007. I have no issue with the logic, but it's this addiction DURING THE GAME. Josh McDaniels's gamecalling with Brady in SB 42, IS. BB doesn't micromanage his assistants. Sure he speaks up and overrules, etc, but please. The proof is when BB traded Moss. Moss not here from Week 4-- />Week 17 and Brady's performance actually more impressive than his 2007 performance, the latter actually being an easier offense to run, which is telling. I was relieved when Moss was dealt. Many didn't see it. They flipped out. They still flip out and don't get it. What happens in January? They overthink it, fail to execute in it, and then O'Brien and Brady spiral into nowhere. Why is this soley on BB? Can B fix it? Absolutely. He fixed it after BUffalo and apparently made a mistake giving Brady and O'Brien too much leash again. There is no way you can look at WHY this offense is good, why it's skittish or BAD, and then not see WHY it is that way. If it's not arrogance or ego, then what is it? So, we're back to where we were after Buffalo's loss again and I don't know we do this once or twice a season for it to tell us it's a failure. Just unbelievable and I don't expect BB to steal the play chart from O'Brien during a game and or to start constantly overruling O'Brien during games.

Russ, you are calling Tom Brady arrogant, and saying his ego is too big. That is ignorant on your part. You are talking about probably the most humble "highest winning %" QB in NFL history. I have never seen a more succesful athlete as grounded and down to earth as Tom Brady is. Ever.
I am sorry but you are barking up the wrong tree on this one. Anyone of us after breaking the NFL record for td receptions in a season would naturally want to fall back on the pass. IT IS HUMAN NATURE. That is where proper coaching comes in. The QB no matter how many records he has broken, no matter how many championships he has won IS STILL A PLAYER. He needs to be coached, held in check, helped. We don't have that guy on our coaching staff.
Trying to portray Brady as the problem is what is hurting you in your on going crusade to argue with trolls, which honestly you should really put a clamp on because all it does is ruin many threads that you have great points on.
You have the right idea that our offense is under performing and it is absolutely having a negative effect on our defense, but it is the offensive philosophy that needs to be changed and that only comes from proper coaching.
When a Qb throws 50 tds to 8 interceptions he SHOULD want to throw his way out of a problem, but again that is where we need a coach to COACH him. This is a different offense from 07, actually it is a completely different offense then 07. Built around a great slot rec, 2 great TE's and multiple RB's. Our coaching should not LET Brady throw the ball 49 att's against the 29th ranked run defense EVER.
Ego on Brady's part = NO.
Failure to coach a star athlete on the coaches part = YES.
