Forums - Sports Discussion - Tom Brady is clear, Suspension is lifted

Apparently you either like Brady or you hate him. The deflated balls "scandal" wasn't that big of an issue to me considering they kicked the Colts ass. Should he have gotten people to deflate them? No but in the end I don't think it really mattered that much.



Around the Network

People call Tom Brady a great QB, but they forget that the rest of the AFC East has consisted of teams that had trouble to compete on a high school level for the longest time.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Me, and most of the world that isn't USA, only knows this guy as Gisele Bundchen husband.

What?  The 2nd half of the Colts game, and the SB weren't enough proof?  I mean, he only had the greatest 4th quarter in SB history.  I'm curious if the NFL will actually make public their analysis of ball pressure throughout the season, myself :)


Lol love the comeback use of the 2nd of the Colts game. Last time I checked the defense gave Brady short fields to work with in the second half. All I know Brady throughout his career has been a whining baby, this was no different. Brady and Bellicheat are slime balls #AskReggieWayne

No comment on the SB, though.  Makes your entire statement relevant :)

Agreed, if only they played teams outside the AFC East.

Last year NFL.com wrote that Tom Brady got lobotomized in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Also, reporters asked if the QB starting job in New England was going to be reconsidered after that game.

Right...you mean when their Offensive Line was in shambles?  And from then on turned it around after the starting center (Stork) came back and solidified the front?  I mean, you're right, that game was a mess, but there were reasons for that.  And also, the Patriots won the SB, if you hadn't heard, with Brady at QB.  Sounds like the sky wasn't falling.  Plus, I can't remember, did the Patriots only play teams in the AFC East after the Chiefs game?

Your recollection of the events is wrong. Heck, you even admitted that you have trouble to remember what happened last season.

Ah, you're right, Stork missed the 3 games of the season, came back in Wk 4, for some reason I thought he was out the first 4 games.  Was wrong about that.  However, the offensive line was in shambles for the first few games that year (For whatever reason).  That's not really up for debate.   Loss of Logan Mankins' leadership on the line hurt them for a bit.  Not sure exactly what turned it around.  Looks like it was basically injuries up and down the line though.  For the first 3 games you had Marcus Cannon at LG (horrible), which left Solder on his own island (not good).  Mankins being their to anchor him was viewed as what kept the left side of the line together.  You also had Jordan Devey at RG, for 3 games, Cam Fleming at RG for the 4th, and Wendell didn't come back until the 5th.

So yeah, injuries played a significant role in the offensive line in the first 4 games of the season.  I may have been off by 1 game with Stork, but injuries altogether were the reason.

Beyond that, still not sure what your point is.  1 game, does not a season make.  Which should be pretty evident with how that year turned out.  Plus, the Patriots have always consistently gotten better as the year goes on.  And, I'm not saying Brady isn't above having a bad game.  Everyone has that happen from time to time.  His body of work however...kinda hard to argue unless you've got serious blinders on.

I don't know what my point is either. Do I need one?
