Rusty, a good analysis and it was refreshing to read something from you that was not an apology for Belichick or a mocking of Brady. Thanks.
However, "AH based posts pop up that basically do the same thing, which is add unnecessary and irrational drama to the situation"
With all due respect, there's no way to add to the drama of AH. AH created this drama.
Sorry but it's going to take me a little while to wrap my head around a pro football player in his prime, one of the stars on my team and a key part of the offense, go down for being a cold blooded assasin.
I realize why you would want to deflect this board away from our team's predicament and Belichick's accountability, but sorry dude - even OJ waited till after retirement to whack somebody.
For you it works out, putting the horrible tragedy aside, because if the team struggles offensively in the regular season or the post season you'll have one more reason to pile on Brady.
For the rest of us we'd prefer he'd have some skill position players to throw to that aren't mini-me's, injured, in jail or picked up off the "Belichick value pick" scrap heap.
Any day now we're going to start hearing about one of our talented young receivers not being able to grasp the ridiculous complexity of the offense.
But back to the topic at hand, yeah, NCAA Football is corrupt. That's why pro football personnel departments are going to have to dig deeper I think in scouting and young player investigation/development. I don't expect the NCAA to change. It would take an incident that could be more directly tied to them than Hernandez.
