  1. This thread has devolved quite a bit since Brady ended the debate Sunday night.
  2. Why wouldn't he? Dude looks better at 39 than he ever has, he's faster and more mobile in the pocket. He's Benjamin Button'ing
  3. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/02/04/many-great-players-are-calling-tom-brady-the-best-ever/ I don't remember seeing any of these comments for Manning during Super Bowl week last year.
  4. Belichick once said he doesn't want to be like Marv Levy, coaching at 70 years old. This was like 8 years ago though, so who knows if his thoughts have changed.
  5. Brian Greise is equal to Brady is all I needed to read to add another member to my ignore list. Make any arguments you want for or against Brady that you want, but don't just be a stupid troll. I suppose Steve Bono=Joe Montana too? Also Matt Cassell sucked on the Chiefs so bad that he made the pro bowl.
  6. They were on average 11.4 psi, should have been 12.5. But when you factor in the IGL, they magically return to 12.5. Not quite the same as your 33% below minimum glove analogy, but I digress. What were Big Ben's footballs measured at against the Giants? That was cheating right? Pittsburgh Cheeters. How about the walkie talkies the Giants used? Can we call them the New York Cheatants? Pete Carroll cheated the IR with Sherman and twice with padded practices, how about the Seattle Cheathawks. Broncos with the salary cap and Spygate 2.0, the Denver Cheatos. Jets manipulated special teams footballs in 2009 and also tampered with Revis, New York Cheats. Do you realize how petulant you sound screaming the word cheater over and over again, like you're playing Scrabble with your Nana?
  7. NFL attorney Jeff Pash was asked by Judge Berman whether there was any direct evidence to show the Patriots participated in a scheme to deflate footballs in the AFC Championship game, to which Pash said no. This was all in the court transcript that you can find online. He reversed the suspension, only it was changed by a court the next year on a 2-1 vote because of Article 47, which basically says that Goodell has the right to levy any punishment he deems necessary regardless of if there is evidence or not.
  8. LOL at those of you taking the league office's "no credible evidence" stance on Manning's HGH allegations and ignoring them in court admitting there was "no credible evidence" that Brady or the Patriots deflated footballs in the AFC Championship 2 years ago. Did you not see them sweep the Steelers deflated balls under the rug in a few hours? Clearly they don't have any intentions of future cheating scandals, as they learned from deflategate that it isn't a path they want to go down anymore, which is a main reason the Manning story never gained any legs. Yes, Sly recanted his story, however he was facing criminal charges for what he said on video, so he had a very good reason to recant and absolutely no reason to stand by what he said on tape. Didn't Manning send a few people to his house that masqueraded as police officers? That sounds like a completely innocent man to me...
  9. Think Dan Marino or Charles Barkley would trade their MVP's for championship rings?
  10. Hypothetically speaking, if Brady wins his 5th championship in 2 weeks is there anyone that is going to seriously try to make this debate? Since the Manning side is basically saying you have to ignore championships, it shouldn't matter at all, correct? I know dashoe's opinion on the matter, Brady could win 5 more titles and he would still not measure up to the great one and done Manning.
  11. IMO the video he posted isn't going to cause the Steelers any problems on the field on Sunday, very much like OBJ. However the video is a symptom of a larger problem with Brown (like OBJ), in that they aren't focused 100% on what they should be focused on. If they were both bought in fully, they wouldn't be doing this other crap that is distracting themselves from the main goal, which is getting ready for the next playoff football game. The coach and quarterback are addressing the team after a big playoff win and he is concerned about 40k people watching his Facebook Live and smiling into the camera for them. He wasn't even in the same section of the locker room. I feel bad for Tomlin here, as people in the media are trying to play up his a hole comment which is about as big of a throwaway comment as you can get in professional sports. Of course the teams and coaches don't like eachother, that's what I want as a fan. I can't stand when players from opposing teams are playing grab a** before during and after games. Give me two teams that despise eachother every game over that.
  12. Dion was the epitome of Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde the other night, 3 TD and 2 fumbles. Fumbles were an issue with him at the beginning of last year as well so hopefully he can figure that out. One interesting note, the Patriots are a perfect 15-0 when Dion plays. He clearly means quite a bit to their offense whether he is heavily involved or not.
  13. Manning also has had 3 of those games at home vs 2 on the road. The 3 years Manning beat Brady (06, 13, and 15) were 3 of Brady's weakest teams at that point in the season over the last 15 years. On the flip side, Manning's 03 and 04 teams were among the strongest he had in Indy. It also helps Manning that the years when Brady had a decidedly better team than Manning (07, 14) his teams bowed out of the playoffs early and avoided a thumping in Foxboro. Sometimes the narrative is more indicative of what happened than just the final numbers.
  14. Huh? What are you even saying? Tee Johnson? Tedy Brusshi? Damien Woody on defense? Buehler? This debate should have ended after 2014. It was a debate prior to that but it isn't anymore. Last season did nothing to enhance the Manning side of the argument. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but the majority of people that are paid to spew their opinions agree that it goes Brady, Montana, then 3 or 4 other guys in some order. This is like arguing Jordan vs. Kobe, only if Kobe had 2 less rings.
  15. And the Pats defense being above average has led to Brady's statistics being diminished due to many clock killing 4th quarters throughout his career. Had he been "blessed" with Indy or New Orleans defenses throughout his career he would have piled up plenty of junk time yards and TDs like Peyton and Brees have through the years. That's why it isn't all about statistics or all about wins, because the two counteract eachother. This debate is far more about the eye test than anything else, and having watched both Manning and Brady for years, they were equally great throughout the regular seasons against the Jacksonville's and the Cleveland's of the league. What separates them is that Brady has taken his team to the Super Bowl 6 times in his career (and counting) and Manning is the NFL record holder for one and dones. If given the choice for one game who you would pick, there really isn't much debate as Brady has consistently excelled throughout his career in pressure spots and Manning has generally come up short.
