Brady saying "shit" in his press conference? The commish can show how much he cares for the children.I hate to say it but I wonder what faux scandal will arise over the next two weeks. If we have learned anything about Goodell's NFL its that they love to hype up seemingly innocuous things to deflect from the seedier underbelly (CTE, domestic violence) of the league. It keeps the focus on the league and the game during the first week of the two week period too.
I'm so glad we're not playing the Giants.
FWIW, the Pats did not exactly play well during the two AFCCG wins prior to facing the Giants in the Super Bowl. In 2007, the Pats kind of hung on to a 21-12 lead against the Chargers; in 2011, they were the beneficiary of a missed 32 yard field goal with 14 seconds left, but were arguably outplayed by the Ravens (398-330 edge in total yards, 3 Pats turnovers vs 1 for the Ravens). Brady's QB rating in those 2 games was 66.4 and 57.5, and both were his worst performances during those respective seasons (his ratings during those Super Bowl losses were 82.5 and 91.1, respectively).
Of course, the detractors will say he will have the worst record of any QB to start seven Super BowlsIf Brady gets 300 yards and 3 TDs in Houston he will set playoff records for playoff games for each of those. And a win, the most importantly, would be a record 5th for a Non-lineman
I think this is the team Belichick has been trying to build for a while now. A #1 defense without any hired guns like Revis, but no weaknesses either.
Seahawks CB are worse to me but the S are just as good LB are Fast Beasley can wreck a game
Atlanta is 25th in defense and they gave up 25.4 ppg and they play primarily zone. Brady carves zones Ds up for breakfast.Seahawks CB are worse to me but the S are just as good LB are Fast Beasley can wreck a game
