I have rooted against Brady since the Tuck Rule game. It did not seem like a fair rule. 

 

Colts fans disliked him way before there were any signs of "cheating". 

 

Brady was being lauded as one of the best when he really was not playing like the best. The narrative was a travesty; it really is not anymore. 

 

And, of course, because of the crushing losses to the Pats. 

 

Pats vs Falcons Super Bowl is when I truly stopped hating Brady. 

 

The deflated footballs are not a big deal. He paid for it and he is still good without alleged deflated footballs.

You asked me why would a Vikings fan dislike Brady. I answered the question.

I like this game because the officials are not stopping the game every few minutes to announce a penalty. 

They need to throw flags if there are penalties otherwise why are they there?

 

Not blaming them for the score the Packers have had their chances.

How many quarterbacks have the “luxury” of throwing three picks in a half of a playoff game, and have their D force 3 and outs on two of those?

 

This why I get tired if the undisputed GOAT narrative surrounding Brady: the media lauds because he just wins without delving into those factors that aid in those victories.

You answered with "the same reason a Colts fan would". And then mentioned "cheating" as if that is the sole reason a Colts fan would. Maybe I mistook it.

As long as they are calling it the same on both sides I think it’s fine. Let them play.

Idk how many but Manning had that luxury against the Chiefs in the 06 wild card. 

 

Brady also got steam rolled against the Ravens in the Wildcard in the 09 wildcard after throwing numerous picks. 

 

Also, all picks are not equal. Brady's picks have been deep in Packers territory.

I’ve seen more ignored calls on big Bucs plays to know where this is heading.

 

ignored hands to the face from a bucs defender on the same play they ignored the defensive holding to force 4th down. Just ignored a blatant block in the back right in front of the official, on the defender that would have made the stop. 
 

really poor officiating tonight, and it’s unfortunate

It's obvious, no one can honestly deny it at this point

Last I'll make, refs alter outcomes with blown calls and that one was obvious and changed game.....we can go back to the 1972 Olympics basketball...if U.S.A. played better defense on each of the added time restarts they win....both restarts were asinine...Russia got Gold...U.S. refused silver.....team A sometimes needs all it can muster to beat team B..ALL they can muster. Than bad call changes result and they dont deserve to win......that argument cant ever ever be allowed to go unchecked......

And he won the game and next one against Baltimore, but as I felt at the time those were probably the two of the worst playoff games Manning had under center in the playoffs with Indy.

 

Again, this is why it is extremely nonsensical IMO to base judgements of individual greatness solely on team accomplishments.

    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
