Astonishing that this team wins as many games as it does what with BB so inept and all. Oh wait, I forgot, it's all Tom Brady. Silly me.
How silly, indeed. Of course, all of the geniuses here today were, no doubt, complaining that BB should have picked TB in the first round, the year that he was drafted. I mean, certainly, they all had pegged TB to be a lock for the HOF! How could BB be so careless to risk allowing another team to pick him first.
No doubt, if we didn't have TB leading this team, we would be lucky to see them win a handful of games in a season. Good thing that has never happened!
To be fair you can't have it both ways. If you are going to criticize fans for nothing picking Brady in the 1st then you really can't give BB credit for stealing him in the 6th. What I mean by that is if he really saw Brady for what he was don't you think he would have taken him much higher? It was a lucky pick but hey luck counts in this game and I'm damn glad we got lucky. I just don't pretend it's going to happen every year in the 6th like some fans, or heck even again in my lifetime.
Just like taking Garop in the second. You are right. BB did not see Brady for what he is now - a HOF QB, arguably the best ever. He saw TB as a long shot backup, who might not even make it to the 53. That is the expectation on 6th rounders. So he either did not see TB being this good, or he thinks Garop is way way better.
On how he has won more games than anyone since 2006? Easy answer: He's a damn good coach - at least good enough to cover for his draft misses. In turn, his miss rate is not too bad that he is unable to compensate thru coaching.
