Jan 26, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Rant Sports

One thing that was learned from the 2012 NFL season is that New England Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady is on the decline.

"WTF"? I know he is 34 y/o and the franchise needs to think about the future but Brady has at least 3 good solid years to give being that he is the BEST QB in the history of the NFL! Not only can he still play at an elite level, his passion and commitment to the game and the team are all there. He cannot do it alone as we've seen in past super bowls; if recievers don't catch well thrown balls, if key players (Gronk) are not healthy, and the "D" (secondary) cannot cover deep passes, Brady can't win them all.

I think it all comes down to the defence more than Brady at this point,mostly on the cover guys getting better or going out and finding people who can get the job done. Go Pats!!!

Concur although Otto Graham has a horse in the race for best QB, and a couple of the drops were not well thrown, but still...
Last year despite Manning being in the running for MVP against Peterson, it was Brady who led in all the advanced stats. DVOA, DYAR, Quality Yards etc. Manning was behind him in every stat in the advanced categories which truly show value, yet the press has shown a love affair with Peyton for their own twisted reasons devoid of statistical fairness. ESPN even down played Mannings INTs/fumbles (a negative) and Bradys rushing TDs (a positive) and still Brady had a better TD/turnover ratio with the skewed ESPN figures. Then there is the ESPN QBR ratings that we all just have to tke for granted. Its like the IRS saying just write us a check. Brady on the other hand led the league in guiding the Pats to almost 100 points more than any other QB in the league, and beat Manning head to head (Bradys defense was bottom of the league while Mannings was top five and he still lost...pressure gets to him) yet little was said about it. The sports writers even voted Peyton two MVPs when he wasn't statistically in the top five, and discussed his deserving it in a year he never hit the field. Peyton is an exception QB just doesn't make the top 10 unless you give him longevity points like Favre or believe the less than accurate (I'm being nice) press, while Brady is at worst a top three QB based on efficiency measures, and has the best winning percentage by a lot, almost 100 points over Manning.
How can Brady the statistical leader be said to be falling off? The sports writers like the political press have an agenda and it's not the truth. They are jealous of Brady and what they perceive as his perfect life, and use Peyton to hammer at Tom. It has been said that the press will tral test negatives about Zbrady and pitives about Manning to see if they will stick. True or not...you decide, from where I sit it makes sense.

Disagree...Not the defense that lost to the Giants twice or Ravens. The offense only scored 14, 17, and 13 respectively. Not having down field receivers forces the Pats to use only part of the field and the better teams can defend it.
Also, defense get better as year goes on. Better defense a big help but priority #2. Of course injuries can limit your opportunities...and keep Pollard away from you (Brady, Welker, Gronk, Ridley, who is next?)

Having Brady scanning the entire field vice using Welker as his security blanket will make Tom a better QB. Welker being with Manning will give Denver a more potent offense as long as Manning doesn't fixate on Welker as Brady did. Win/win. Bigger win for Denver until you add in the loss of Dumerville (appropriate name?...you decide).
Amendola is younger, faster, quicker so should be a good replacement if he can get in sinc with Brady and stay healthy. The addition of legit wideouts (I'm assuming they got them now - big assumption?) will open up bigger windows both short and midrange.
Gotta like a receiver with amen in his name...
Maybe if he has a great year he can focus on the rest of that name...DOLA!!!
If healthy this year, look for Pats to surprise.

This Runt Sports article was posted 105 days ago. As in before the 2013 draft. Too late...
Not that there was anyone worth drafting this year to be Brady's replacement
Brady still plays at a high level, is not injury prone, and faces a weak division. They'll be fine for a few more years.

Pats showed more concern for DL Love than his own agent. You expect players to always push the envelop and say they can play even when they shouldn't. But the Pats showed genuine concern for the guy, letting him sit out and take care of a medical condition, but what do they get for their oncern, they even offered to let him go if he remained adamant about playing. His agent seems to error on the side of putting money in his own pocket, at the possible expense to the health of his client. All I can say is ...what a guy, glad he's not looking out for anyone I care about. Just because others have survived a medical condition is no guarantee this guy will. Pats may be overly cautious, but in my book, that's a good thing, even if an gent points a finger to get the monkey off his own back.

Heres to hoping the Pats will trade Brady sometime before he retires, to a team that has some quality wide receivers. One would think that having a QB of his calibre would strongly suggest having quality wideouts would be a good thing. Where's the genius in having a great QB and limited ability on the other end of the throw. Just Imagine what Larry Fitzgerald or Megatron would give to catch Brady's passes.
All things being equal, Brady gets $15M less than Rodgers and $13M less than Peyton. When you add in the salaries of their lower tiered wide outs, they have almost $20M to spend on 2 quality WRs. Couldn't the Pats brain trust find two top receivers for that money? Even just one for $10M? You know they didn't spend it (wisely) on defense.

Pats need to get the best medical staff they can, to keep their key players healthy. If, big if, they can get Ballard and Gronk run blocking with Hernandez and Blount in the backfield, they could potentially run over the defense, especially Denver's and Baltimore's, and run the clock out as needed.
Brady's numbers would take a hit but it would improve their chances at a run for yet another ring (pun intended).

Anybody know if the QB who leads the league in the most stat areas has ever won the big game. Seems like Marino, Manning, Bree's etc. post up a lot of yardage but seldom win the big one. The couple times they did, they didn't lead the league. Think there is a lesson to be learned there. And the lesson is balance, to keep the opponent guessing, giving your team a higher probability of success.

The lesson is that the QB alone cannot win a championship.

Learn to read, he said the couple of times they did. Couple means two.
Manning and Bree's have not won Superbowls, plural. They each have won just one.

Sort of conveniently leaves out the part where Favre has the Packers on the brink of the Super Bowl at 38 and the Vikings the same at 40, doesn't he? Sort of dismissses Ryan Mallet, too, indirectly. If anyone has a contingency plan, it's the Patriots.

Sports writers have deadlines. If they don't consistently meet them, they get fired. Many times with little real news to keep a fans interest the writer writes an article that is made up of untruths to keep the fans attention. These articles go under the heading of think pieces or mind twisters, or one man's opinion. Bottom line, writing is not a field made up of those with great integrity, therefore, learn to think for yourselves, otherwise you will be at the mercy of those who write to save their jobs by giving you false info which only degrades and manipulates your thinking.
Consider...Brady was at the top of the advanced stat categories, all of them. These stats are of greater accuracy than QBR (made up by ESPN for their own purposes).
Mallet has a rocket for an arm and is valued as a #1-2 draft pick and experienced in the most complex offense in the league.
So tell me, why was this article even written. Best guess, deadline requirement and Brady is a hot topic even if the article was a lie.
Got to stay aware or the press will dumb you down, most every time.

I agree with Mensa8 about this topic...the point is often to stimulate the conversation...even on television and radio...ESPN's Colin Cowherd will often rub salt into attitudes by suggesting that Kobe is much the equal of Micheal Jordan....or that Secretariat, should'nt have been included in the network's top 50 sports stars of ALL TIME.....Stuff that not only make's you wanna call in, but dial with your fist....lol....
