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.

    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
    • This is obvious to many.  Since he could not fire Pagano, I'm not sure why he did not bring in different OCs.  Of course, I'm not sure if that quick passing game was in vogue at the time he was here, and I don't know what OC candidates would have implemented it.  Seemed like the candidates were just a bunch of old school retreads at the time.   The west coast offense was known for exposing its QBs to injury, so that shorter quicker passing offense was not the answer.   Can only hire what the market produces.
