  1. It’s a figure of speech, not literal. Of course you should know that, but I digress. Yep. Back to football. Everyone feel free to dislike Brady as you wish, career Brady or 2020 season Brady. 3...2...1.....GO!
  2. What a shocking turn of events that Brady haters would agree with other Brady haters. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
  3. Your lack of reading comprehension is mind boggling. You bolded the section where I said Belichick has never been to a SB as a head coach without Tom, facts by the way, and then you proceed to talk about two SB wins as an assistant coach with the Giants? Wow. I’m not downgrading anything necessarily as I said earlier, I just find it interesting that Belichick never had success as a head coach without Tom. 1 playoff appearance in 5 seasons with the Browns who had been to the playoffs 5 of 6 seasons before he got there, 5-11 with the Patriots in 2000 while having Bledsoe at QB, and missed the playoffs in 2008 when Tom was hurt, granted they were 11-5 but that’s 5 games worse than the 16-0 they went in 2007 with Brady. In 7 seasons as a head coach without Tom Brady as his starter he went to the playoffs 1 time and only had 2 winning seasons. These are facts, this is an unbiased look at the history of Belichick as a head coach without Brady, we have no evidence of Brady without Belichick at this moment. Maybe Brady will fall on his face and be terrible the next 2 years, maybe Belichick wins 2 more SBs the next 2 seasons but for now this is what we have to go on. It’s unfortunate that Brady haters, which you clearly are, and there are quite a few in this thread can not be unbiased in your assessment of one of the greatest QBs to ever play. BTW, not a Patriots fan. No need to be a fan of that team to enjoy watching one the greatest to ever play the game.
  4. Like I told Dashoe earlier in this thread, Tom Brady lives rent free inside your mind. You eat, sleep and breathe Tom Brady, and to be honest by reading your posts about him it’s clear that you can’t be objective.Which means there’s no rational conversation to be had here because you’re gonna believe what you want regardless. But my question is how you can knock Tom for cheating if that’s what you believe but apparently not knock the supposed ringleader Belichick? Also for people who want to talk about cheating, didn’t Peyton Manning have HGH shipped to his house but it was for his wife, right? 🤔 But he’s near the top of your list right? How could that be? But we’re talking about deflate gate which can be disproved by 7th grade science which also was never proven by the NFL after an expensive and exhaustive investigation. Also they whooped the Colts a** worse with a properly inflated ball in the 2nd half of that game and beat the Legion of Boom in the SB, again with proper inflation. With all that said I don’t spend much time on these forums anymore because they’re not really that informative like they used to be but I’ll check back at the end of the season assuming we have one and if Tom has a good year I’ll expect to see some crow eating in here.
  5. So the stat of a 42-58 win/loss record for Belichick before Brady started for him is modern runaway offense? Or having 4 losing seasons in 5 years with the Browns who went to the playoffs 5 of 6 years before he got there? Or going 5-13 with Bledsoe, a former number 1 overall pick and SB runner up QB? People talk about Matt Cassell and NE going 11-5 in 2008 while missing the playoffs, but that was 5 games worse than the year before when they went 16-0, with you guessed it Brady as the QB. I find all of that pretty interesting. Not discrediting Belichick necessarily as they both wouldn’t have been as successful without the other but there’s far too much of the sentiment that Belichick gets most of the credit when he’s never been to a SB as a head coach and only has 1 playoff appearance without Tom Brady as his starter. Again it is what it is, but some people seem to continue to find ways to downgrade one of the most accomplished QBs time and time again. “He doesn’t have the arm talent” ”He doesn’t make Peyton Manning type pre snap reads” ”He’s not mobile” ”He had the GOAT head coach” ”He’s Giselle’s husband” “He’s been on a cheating organization” ”He played in a weak division” Yet what I see is a guy who was pick 199 and came in as the 4th string QB his rookie year, who told Robert Kraft that picking him was the best decision the Patriots ever made. A guy who had the confidence and the work ethic of a first rounder but the chip on the shoulder to prove everyone wrong because he wasn’t. A guy who constantly took less to make the team better around him instead of taking the most salary like he could have. A guy who is a consistent winner in a sport that doesn’t have consistent winners unless you are the greatest of the great. Tom is the GOAT to me, because he has clearly been one of the greatest QBs but also he’s the most accomplished. When you combine both that puts you on another level. With that said I don’t really care who does better without each other Brady or Belichick but I just thought it was interesting to see how things looked before Brady came in to the picture.
  6. Regardless of where it’s from....it’s factual information. People surely don’t mind quoting ESPN when talking about spygate or deflategate. 😂 🤔
  7. The facts presented by Greenberg are pretty interesting in my opinion, especially for people who like to marginalize Tom Brady in the success of the Patriots.
  8. It’s certainly possible, it’s also possible that the scheme gets adapted. Byron Leftwich is calling plays, and he’s played in West Coast systems before. I know it’s Arians system and he likes to go deep but you don’t bring in the GOAT when you’re trying to win in a small window, which Tampa clearly is trying to, and then stubbornly not adapt somewhat to what Tom likes. Maybe he didn’t adapt to Ben or rookie Andrew Luck or Palmer, but they’re not Brady. Now having said that, considering you’re clearly a Brady hater, I’m not sure a rational conversation can be had here. No matter what happens you’ll find a way to discredit Brady. If he does bad, it’ll be because you said he couldn’t fit the system/bad oline etc, and if he succeeds it’ll be because he had Evans/Godwin/Howard/Brate so of course he was gonna succeed. Im sorry Tom hurt you for 20 years, and now you’re obsessed with him, but maybe he’s just not that into you? 😁
  9. Tom should choose Tampa and be thankful that he’d actually have a coach that covets him for once and more importantly, weapons to throw to. Evans, Godwin, OJ, Brate, hell even Scott Miller has some potential, and if I’m Tampa I also sign Chris Thompson to give Brady his new James White. Tampa could then spend a good amount of the draft on OL and Defense. People seem to forget Tampa was 7-9 last year with Jameis throwing 30 INTs, and the kicker missing quite a few kicks, definitely costing Tampa the game against the Giants.
  10. You know, reading some of your recent posts on Tom Brady has shown me that he (Brady) has a permanent residence in your head, rent free I might add. It’s okay to admit he hurt you, he didn’t reciprocate your love, but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the good times you guys had together! 😂😂
  11. Guys, I need some help. First round of the playoffs and I’ve been back and forth on which QB to start. Jameis vs Indy Fitzmagic vs Jets Matt Ryan vs Carolina I can make pros and cons for all of them. Appreciate the help.
  12. Currently have a dilemma in my flex spot. This week I traded for both Sammy Watkins and Will Fuller (separate deals) and now I’m not sure who to start. Watkins is my preferred start but he plays Sunday night and is questionable, and I currently only have Darrel Williams to play in his spot in case of a Watkins inactive. That’s not very reassuring. With that said in the FA pool are Hines, Wilkins, pascal and Marquise Goodwin. Will Fuller plays at 1 so it may be safer play but he hasn’t done a whole lot yet. Would you go safe and play Fuller or risk it and hope Watkins plays and if he doesn’t have to play one of the other options I mentioned in the FA pool? Thanks for the help in advance.
  13. My league starts 8 IDP (25 man rosters 8 offense/8 defense/1 kicker/8 bench) 5 D (flex) 1 LB 1 DB 1 DL Makes things very interesting, certainly not easy but it’s fun. I don’t know why people continue to play Team Defense, IDP is the way to go in my opinion.
  14. It also increases the likelihood of a tie game as well. In my league which has 10 years of history we had no decimal scoring for the first 3 seasons. In those 3 seasons we had 3 ties, in the 7 seasons that have followed, 0 ties.
