In response to TFB12's comment:
The team is rebuilt. Youngest D in the league. They just need health when it matters. Gronk, Talib and Jones out are huge impacts on both sides of the ball.
The biggest misconception with gogly eyed fans like you, who only care about high flying stats and Randy Moss plays, is this "deep theat" rhetoric. That was never heard of here during the 3 SBs in 4 years.
The fact is, if Weis told Brady to go deep, he went deep. It didn't matter if it was Patten, Branch or a rare Bethel Johnson try.
Lloyd gets deep as well as anyone but we have a QB who SUCKS at throwing deep and refuses to use playaction every week.
So, what good is it? He'll be 36 in Sept.
I could not disagree more with your analysis and people who agree with you. Get 2007 out of your head. The entire team, the fans, etc, are waiting on Tom Brady. You're just going to have to deal with that fact.
He's got two GOLDEN LOOKS these next 2 years assuming he's here for 2014, too. Golden.
NE will win the division next year and lose no less than 4 games. They'll end up with a #1 or #2 seed again and we'll be all crossing our fingers he gets his head out of his rectum in the AFC title game for once.
It's the absolute truth.
What I mean by rebuilding years when TFB leaves will be due to the change the offense will go through. TFB is a master of this offense they run, it consists of all his strengths which will be different for the new QB they put in there. TFB is a smart QB, can disect a defense, pick it apart and runs a super efficient offense. I didn't see Hoyer have those qualities and I don't see Mallet having those qualities. So they will rebuild how the offense runs to match whichever QB's talent they have at that position. It will take some time. So that's what I mean by the rebuilding years.
The last few years I have been doubting if TFB still has it. I doubted him being able to handle the big games as it looked more like he was letting the pressure to win another SB and to prove his greatness get to him. Yet you look at the other top QB's in the league they weren't getting it done either, in fact they weren't even taking their team as deep as Brady was in the playoffs.
I stepped back and looked deeper into why this team didn't win the 2011 SB and didn't make it to the SB last season and it's not TFB's fault they have failed. It's the game plans, it's the coaching philosiphy going into these post season games, it's the talent around him! It's not TFB! All the people doubting TFB these days need to look deeper into the problem as I have done, but they don't, it's much easier to just put the blame on TFB.
During the regular season they open up the offense, they play to win. When they get to the playoffs and the SB they really seem to tone it down, they play not to lose instead of play to win. They seem to have a very simple game plan, they don't open it up like they do during the regular season and in order to win this way TFB and the offense has to have a perfect game to win.. And that's on the coaches. That's on the game planning, that's not on TFB. Also, these past couple years Gronk, a key player has been hurt in the biggest games taking away a huge weapon and they don't have other big talent weapons to rely on other then Wes Welker, who has been the main weapon, the only weapon. That's why keeping Welker is so important, without Welker the team has zero weapons for TFB.
So to summarize..
Keep Welker, add more weapons for TFB, especially if one of the weapons gets hurt, change game philosophy for the post season to match their regular season offense philosophy. Had these things changed during the last two seasons, 2 more SB rings would be on TFB's fingers. Of course the D could have been better but with TFB as QB they were good enough to win the SB the last two years had these things I mentioned on offense in the post season would have been changed.
