Re: Why Brady is STILL the one.

In response to RockScully's comment:
This thread title will be true when he plays well in the postseason/SB and this team is holding the Lombardi. That simple.
If it's about "the next one", then regular season stats with loaded weaponry in an offensive era, is a horrible argument as to why the next one is the priority.
Look no further than Gomer in Denver. It's a media's dream to be able to praise him in his comeback season, but when he and Denver falter in the postseason, it won't matter what his bloated stats looked like in the regular season. The stats are not really what matter.
BB has done a phenomenal job, generally speaking by helping Brady a lot since 2007 in particular. He's altered the offense numerous times to stay ahead of the curve, revolutionized how TEs are used, has had great versatility and depth on the O Line, etc, etc.
No one player is above the team. The more some fans think Brady is, the more they're going to be crushed with how this team loses in the postseason. Once Brady starts leaning more on more players on offense, the better he will look against the good Ds. Tonight is a perfect time to start.
You want "roadblocks", look no further than the idea that most NFL teams have issues putting together back to back winning seasons. Meanwhile, in the cap era, with rule changes galore, almost all of them centered around trying to weaken teams like a NE, the leader of this franchise is Bill Belichick, and the one who is leading the way through those roadblocks. Once the Chuck Rule thing became a priority, Goodell was hired, etc, BB changed where his investment went. Iin 2007, he upped the odds by overloading his offense. He did it again in 2010, 2011 and now in 2012.
Roadblocks for QBs certainly don't exist in this era, either. It's easier to play QB now thaan ever before considering what Goodell does. Phantom personal fouls, phantom PI and illegal contact calls, roughing calls, no off-PI ever called, etc. Brady has no roadblocks. That's a preposterous premise. He has as good a situation as anyone in this league and has for years. Not debatable.
Tom Brady is not above reproach in January or February. He used to be, but it's been a while. Only he can change that. No one one pressuring him to make bad decisions. In each SB win, in close games, he didn't make those bad decisions or not execute.
After reading that piece, I realize it's more about BB than Brady. Brady isn't coaching up the O Line or drafting these players to help keep this thing going. God bless BB for not panicking and doing what the Jets did. This rebuild on the fly will become a legendary story if they can win it all. They almost started a second dynasty last year, but Brady made some key mistakes in the SB.
are you really this dumb? Serious question. You dont think the best pass rushing front 4 in the game for the last decade had anything to do with Brady making decisions UNDER PRESSURE?! Naaaaaaa, couldnt be! He should NEVER make a bad decision, seeing as he has all the time in the world to throw, I mean they do play 7 on 7s in the SB right? LMAO
and the success of Eli couldnt possibly be because we have NO Pass rush to speak of in either of those games right and couldnt manufacture pressure through blitzing? Naaaaaa
, You just keep digging yourself a bigger ditch that you can never get out of huh? Wow, what a Richard you are!
