    What is unfortunate is that you actually believe what you write.  What happened to Tom when Branch and Givens left for greener pastures?  His performance was mediocre for the first half of that year.  It takes time to develop chemisty with new wideouts.  Don't forget Welker was unavailable last game.  In time Brady will again start decimating opposing defenses.

    I would say the coach and his staff which then makes it the whole team.  It is still early. 

    I think the Defense has been beaten by the same three flaws (injuries are not included in the flaws but have been a major issue as well the the last three years) the last three years and it has yet to be corrected.

    1. poor tackling
    2.not covering a tight end on the game deciding plays
    3.no push from your front 3/4 or how ever many defensive players are rushing, ok QB's are looking all-pro against out Defense.

    Maroney.  His whole career is hype.  He runs scared and should be riding the bench.  I list Thomas as #2 overrated player.

    I feel bad putting it up there because he's a really nice guy, but he makes bank and is not a dominant LT.

    Joey Galloway.

    Good news--Wes Welker is seeing practices.  That means little or no Joey Galloway next Sunday.

    I suspect that Galloway can produce if, and only if, he sits on the bench for five plays out of six and a special coach goes over the coming play 15 times in a row.  Then they put him in for one play at a time and he'll usually run the correct route.  Maybe a month or two from now Galloway will get it.   Galloway could also use a month on the jugs machine.  He caught 5 out of 12 passes coming his way last week.  I'll give Galloway credit for his speed, so he's not completely useless.

    Posted by rcasey28[/QUOTE] Without obtaining the vote of his peers he would not be an all-pro. Basically his all-pro status is based on the votes of those that must play aganist him. I'll accept their opinion over all others.

    Posted by JimKe[/QUOTE] Absolutely, I must regretfully agree with you. Hopefully he will get it together this week.  The longer he goes without the old spark and success the more effect it will have on him mentally. Recall the year C. Palmer had when on the first series of downs in the playoffs he was injured. He warned TB before the season that aspect of the recovery which took him 2 seasons. Hopefully it will take TB only 2 games.

    It seems harsh to downgrade Brady to a mediocre QB after two games...but he was annointed by most as the best QB in the game after a single monster season...

    Overrated based on the opinions of this board?

    1. BJGE  - Law Firm
    2. Terrance Nunn

    Previous years:

    Vince Redd
    M Richardson
    Oscar Lua
    W Andrews
    Rohan Davey
    Michael Bishop

    There is a endless list of scrubs, practice squad holdovers and pre-season warriors that this board constantly falls in love with.  The unifying factor in all of these players is that they are now are soon will be out of the the league.

    Jules... I know you are a Phins fan and your feelings for Brady and the Pats.  Brady was not touted as the best off of one season of play, it is the body of work including the playoffs.  What is interesting are the opinions coming out after only 2 games.

    Shawn Crable 

    remember when everyone on here was crowing about him being better than jason taylor this year? 

    honorable mention would be derrick burgess, at least so far. i'm basing this on what BB gave up for him, and the reaction from most fans that our pass russ problem was solved. oops.

    Re: Who is the most overrated Patriot?

    From 2007 - 2009 the answer is Vrabel, Seymour & Bruschi. These guys were not playing well at all but many simply just couldn't let go of their past. Not saying they are bad players, but way OVERRATED based on their past accomplishments.

    I like the house-cleaning on defense and these new players will get better. Coaching needs to get more aggressive on both sides of the ball. Right now, the game calling is way too soft!

    Actually, I'm not a phins fan, but I can see how all of us trolls can be tough to keep straight.  I said in the preseason that it was silly to predict that Brady would look like he did in 2007 after major reconstructive knee surgery.  I also opined that he might not perform as well as Cassell did last year.  I was called an idiot (which I'm not) and a troll (which I am).  At any rate, I wouldn't get too down on TB - just like Peyton with his bursa sac last year, I would expect Brady to start playing better as the year goes on...

    Jules....

    Well, I know you are not a Pats fan, per se...  anyway...

    I think most comments centered around Brady being healthy and the receiver corps he has in place which could mean another season close to what he had in 2007.  Many felt it is better than what he had in 2007.  Either way, both fans and the media are quite fickle.  Look at the press Brees is getting after two games while Brady has had a shaky start.  It could all reverse itself as the season progresses, Brady gets it in gear and Brees cools off.  Considering tha nature of his injury, being even close to what he was in 2007 is a gift.
