Well Peyton took an on-field dump last night. Maybe because it was cold, no Welker, short rehab time after passing all over the place just 4 days earlier, or ate a bad slice of Papa Johns.

At 44 degrees it is not considered cold by New England standards. Cold is in the teens provided its windy for a wind chill factor in the single digits or lower, even the 20s isn't considered cold by New Englanders.
Welker's replacement scored two TDs so not a valid argument.
Short rehab time for San Diego as well so it's a wash and not a valid excuse.
19 Papa Johns are owned by Peyton in the Denver area so he would get only the best, but probably ate at home. Only possibilities are food poisoning because his family likes Brady better or Peyton is a putz. My guess is putz.
In reality Peyton has a track record of under performing in big games. I wouldn't be surprised to find out after he retires that Peyton suffers from a form of a neurological/emotional shortfall. Only time will tell, but the track record says Peyton needs a far superior team and to stop throwing the INT to be victorious. Brady just needs honest refs and his receivers to catch the damn ball. So far this year Brady has hit his receivers at a rate just over 70% too bad he only has a 61% completion rate. Where it not for the refs in the Jets and Panthers game and his receivers drops against Cincinnati, the Pats could be undefeated to date and thats with a crappy team around him. Don't penalize Brady, give the man his due. Too bad the sports writers have their heads up their asses looking through a distorted glass belly button. Meanwhile Peyton has the best offense assembled in years and still finds a way to lose. MVP my ass. Patriots win because of Brady. Donkeys/Broncos could win with anyone and when they lose it's because of Peyton and his INTs, 32% more than Brady throughout his career. Brady's performance this year may be the greatest of any QB in history given the circumstances. Too bad the sports writers are uneducated putzs and too blind to see it, or are they?

If it's true that Peyton can't play well in the cold why in the world would anyone turn over the best offensive team well deserving of a SB only to negate any chance of actually attaining one? And why would anyone pay a guy $20M a year knowing he will only obtain great personal stats at the expense of his teams goals? Answer, hope reigns supreme, unfortunately Peyton has a track record of going after stats for personal gain while winning only when he is on a significantly better team. Even this year like last, having a significantly better team still doesn't guarantee he can pull off the win in the big game. Even if he does finally win it, so what, with his team he should have won it last year as well as this year and many years previously. Didn't happen then so why should we believe it will happen now? Manning has trained in windless temperature controlled domes and altitude benefitting any QBs stats. Idiot sports writers fail to see that a driver in a better equipped vehicle should drive faster and win all the time. Peyton has had that better vehicle but just crashes it before winning time. Too bad they either can't see it or don't want to. Once the sports writers facade of Manning is seen through, Brady will be realized as the best ever, as he deserves. Too bad Belichick hasn't figured out Brady would thrive even more with wide receivers who can get separation and catch.

With the most recent loss of the Peyton led Broncos to San Diego, Brady's Pats have taken over the number one seed. How can a decimated Pats team be ahead of a powerhouse like the Broncos? Answer, Brady. Despite all the fat stats Peyton has with his much better offense, it's Brady who has taken his rag tag team to the number one position. Let's see how long he can hold on to it witout Gronk or any good receivers. Irregardless, this shows that Brady is the real MVP. Too bad all the sports writers like Peyton and go for form over substance. I agree that if Brady and Manning switched teams the Pats would be a losing team and the Broncos undefeated. It wasn't even that cold in Denver tonight and the wind was of no consequence and Manning still couldn't get it together. Looks like Seattle will be raising the SB trophy.
Brady throws the game winning TD twice to his teammates but they can't hang on. Amendola dropped it and that TE from Hawaii Hoomoohoomoonookunookuapuaha let the ball go right through his hands. Brady's wife Gisele had it right when she said her husband could not be expected to throw the ball and catch it as well. Until Pats wise up and get some receivers Brady needs to Velcro both his receivers and the ball so it will stick when he hits them. Maybe change the size of their face masks so Brady can drill it into the mask itself limiting their need to use their slippery hands. Tell me again what is Belichick's job? Doesn't getting receivers figure into it somewhere? It's amazing that Brady has any wins this year when one considers his porous offensive line, receivers who drop balls and a coach who has his head up his ass. The defense isnt very good either, especially for a genius coach who focuses on the defense. Truly Brady must be the most mentally tough guy in the league to put up with such incompetence. In VietNam Belichick would have been a 90 day wonder. Think of all the MVPs and SB victories Brady has lost because Belichick still hasn't figured out receivers are a good thing.

Message to Tom Brady
It's time to take matters into your own hands. The Pats organization is woefully inept in providing you adequate support personnel. Tell them to get you some good receivers who can stretch the field, create separation and hold onto the ball or you will retire. You don't need the money, stats alone are not worth chasing (Gale Sayers is still considered great despite limited numbers), and you are wasting your time on a team that is clueless on how to field a winner.
You could also demand a trade to a team of your choice or to be released. Either way things would only get better, and if retired, life without football though challenging would likely lead to an extended life spent with those you love and who love you. Wether 50k, 60k, or 70k yards passing, it doesn't matter. You need to know your time is well spent. Throwing to current Patriot receivers who can't catch is a waste of time. If Belichick won't listen try Bob Kraft. If they don't come through, loving your family is the way to go. No one at the end of their life ever said they should have spent more time at work.

If the Pats kicker didn't kick the ball out of bounds on the kickoff, Miami would have been twenty yards further back when they made the decision to go for it on fourth down near mid field. At their own thirty they would have been more apt to punt so in the final analysis it looks like the Pats kicker lost the game, or Amendola dropping the game winner, or Hoomanawanui letting the game winner go through his hands. Overall it was a team effort to lose. Way to go guys. Way to support your QB.
Suggest the Pats get a baseball pitching machine and modify it to shot footballs so Pats receivers can spend hour after hour learning how to catch a football. If they could catch, they would be undefeated, but since they can't, chances of victory are a hit and miss proposition. Brady again today hit his receivers at a 70% clip only to end up with a 61% completion rate. Maybe Belichick could glue the receivers elbows together so they could use them like a pair of child's chop sticks. Maybe then they would stop throwing games away and screwing up Brady's stats and the Pats legacy. Too bad Fred Biletnikoff's stickum is no longer legal.

Maybe Brady had difficulty with 85 degree heat.

Postgame, Brady seemed really pissed for a guy who's gonna get to bang a supermodel in a few hours.

Don't think it was the heat with 364 yards passing that should have been well over 400 and closer to 500 if receivers could catch, and three TDs, the last one being dropped twice before the INT. Should have had a passer rating of 131 but instead finished at 95. it's been happening all year. Think they call it growing pains in New England. I call it bad management by Kraft and Belichick. That's why he is the MVP. Without Brady, Pats are a sub .500 team.
And what makes you think it would take him hours to get with Gisele? Didn't you see how fast he got out of that press conference, 54 minutes tops (no bottoms, probably no tops either).
