I hope Brady loses every game he plays in.

I'm a good sport

It  was a good thread all season. The Bucs certainly did not seem SB bound until the playoffs began. Brady really elevated them and they had the belief to win.

Gets to the Super Bowl facing a 7-9 division winner, rides his defense to beat the Saints and a Drew Brees with a shot arm, throws three interceptions and beats a Packers team who made awful coaching decisions at the end of both halves.

 

Sounds pretty familiar to most of his playoff runs with the Patriots.

The other team gets to make plays too.

Made this prediction last year and now I'm setting my sights on a new team. 

 

The Buccaneers made several high profile moves this offseason but I am not buying the hype.

 

Brady is on the decline rapidly and was the weak link on NE last year and Gronk hasn't played in over a year.

 

The Patriots even with Stidham will win the East at 10-6.

 

I could see TB finishing 7-9 and be a massive disappointment.

Never ever be so adamant lol

Ummmmmmm.......but.....he won. U could say that if he won  one or 2 l. But 7...come on man. I use to hate Brady and always find reasons to diminish what he did. U can say what every want, but the greatest qb of all time is Tom Brady. One thing that he proved most of all is that he makes everyone around him better.There, I said it. God that was painful yet enlightening at the same lol.

He really does get the best out of the entire team. When he's the QB, everyone is held accountable. Absolutely unreal.

Its not even close between him and Manning

Championships wise I agree (it is now 7-2). The ability to make his teammates better and play the position it is close though. I don't see much difference there. Keep in mind Manning still has more League MVP's (5-3). That award basically goes to the guy that is the most important player to his team to help them win. I will say this Manning is clearly the 2nd best QB over the last 2 decades, it isn't Rodgers or Mahomes and that is not only by eye test but Manning has more SB wins and League MVP's then either.

I'm pretty sure Brady has stuck around to try to bury Manning in everything.

Because even Mannings 5 MVPs are looked at in the same light when Brady has 5 freaking superbowl MVPs...  

 

Now Brady matched Manning being the only QB's to win with two teams. What else do you need Tom. oh... him and Gronk want Manning and Marvs record before he hangs it up..

Brady is the only QB to win in both conferences. He also is the only only to do it his first season which is unbelievable given the no off-season this year.

I've done what I think is some interesting research. And it could be meaningless and inconsequential but none the less based on history I found it peculiar. In 2019 the Bucs were the most penalized team in the nfl. In 2020 they were the 4th fewest penalized team. Pretty much same coaching staff and players just somehow didn't commit a plethora of penalties this year as in 2019. And it even gets better. During their 4 game win streak at the end of the season and the 4 post season games the Bucs were penalized 33 times for 257 while their opponents got hit 45 times for 513, that I think is astounding. Maybe that's what we can call Brady magic. I know the football purest on here will ridicule and  belittle these stats but it is a part of the game(unfortunately.)

I applaud and appreciate those of you who are realistic about this whole situation. When Manning went to Denver, most of you were instantly Broncos fans. I never said anything was wrong with that, and I can totally relate with Brady having gone to Tampa and accomplishing what he did this year. I'll always be a Patriots fan, but once they were clearly out of contention, I was rooting for Brady all the way (and Gronk as well). 

 

Whether people like it or not, Brady IMMEDIATELY brought a winning aura to a franchise that has traditionally been known as a perennial loser. He is not the most physically gifted QB of all time. Not the best arm, or legs, or any of that. The guy just wins. As a Patriots fan it's somewhat bittersweet, but I can't root against a guy who brought two decades of happiness to us after four decades of frustration and futility. 

 

I don't really post here anymore, but I was curious to see what the general take was on Tampa's SB victory. There is a mutual admiration thing between Tom and Peyton, and I think I share the same with a lot of you, as fans. Best of luck to the Colts moving forward, I don't think the Patriots will be a threat in the AFC for at least a couple more years, LOL... 

 

Cheers.

    • Even IF we do sign Houston (I am for it!).........We would have four of five DEs that will be FAs in the next 12 months   Not a great situation   And.... if Turray gets 12 sacks, he will want huge money......   (I dont know if they will pay it)   Our current Defensive End group is one of the weakest in the NFL, maybe bottom 5.   There is really no other way to look at it   We have chosen NOT to address this in FA, which is fine......   That leaves the draft. and really ONLY the draft   Thats why I dont choose to get excited over bringing in other positions early than OT and DE, in the early rounds.   We need to get some decent prospects for DE this year, or we will be in the same situation next year    
    • I could be wrong because I don't follow every team with the same fervor as I do the Colts, but I can't recall Bill Belichick making statements like "You want to raise your own" and "We want to have a sound structure in place where you're producing great talent for the Colts.". Perhaps he has, but he also has the benefit of winning more Super Bowls than any other Coach in NFL history on his side. Right now, Chris Ballard doesn't have the clout to be able to take such a hard line stance. To make statements about raising your own and producing great talent means that when guys that you draft go out and actually produce on the field you reward them for doing so. I don't even understand why re-signing Leonard or Q would even require a 2nd thought. I seriously think that there is no way Chris Ballard can please this forum. Every year when free agency rolls around the forum goes crazy because Ballard is too cheap or can't close the deal. When he is successful in the draft the positions that he drafted (WLB or OG for instance) aren't "the glamour or most important positions" Personally, I think what Chris Ballard has done is outstanding. He has positioned us to be a playoff caliber team without giving up a ton of draft capital or putting the team in a bad salary cap situation. As far as the free agents that the Patriots signed this offseason do you really think signing Jonnu Smith to 31 million guaranteed or Nelson Agholor to 15 million guaranteed were good deals? To me it looks the Patriots might have had to over pay free agents this year to come in and play for them. I think on this subject, we will just have to agree to disagree because like I said earlier unless the Maniac says he wants starting QB money I think the Colts have to and will re-sign him.
    • I totally agree you said it perfectly Houston was ehh last season and believe if he was anymore than ehh Ballard would already signed him already. This is a big year for Turay if he can stay healthy maybe he can have a big year. I believe Ballard has a plan and I'm looking forward to finding out what it is.
