    What has happened to the playoff magic of Brady?

    10-0 first 10 playoff games now a below average 4-5 in the past 9

    What has happened to the franchise player in these do or die games??

    It's perplexing of how good to how bad it's been once the playoffs arrive.

    I think it's safe to say that we gave Brady too much of the credit during those first 10 games. And now that he's the highest paid player in the history of the NFL, it's more or less expected that he'll play to whatever unreasonable expectation we had for him, except that he can't (honestly, I'm not sure that anyone can).

    He's the best QB in the NFL today, but if we thought that he could win without a superb cast of characters around him, then we were wrong. The rest of the guys aren't as good as we thought they were, neither are the coaches, and neither is Brady himself.

    Overreaction you guys. 14-5? **** that's a great playoff record regardless . I mean come on 10-0? it was only a matter of time til they dropped. We'll be okay Brady still has 4-5 more years left in his prime our defense was the youngest in the league this season and we have a draft coming up that should give us talented players. My main focus should be on Pass rushers and a vertical threat Brandon Tate not doing it for me.

    Well he can play in the pro bowl now!


    Brady has been off ever since the early SB years and i dont know if we will ever reach the big game again. They were perfectibility set up this year and still couldn't do it. He had a great reg season but really..who cares? This season was a waste

    At the beginning of the season, many were saying the Pats were a 8-8 team, w/ no one ever saying the Pats would be better the 11-5. The lack of expereince caught up w/ us along w/ one hell of a defensive game plan by Rexie.

    We need a stud speed outside d lineman, a big, bruising running back, a big and speedy WR, and a stud OL. If we can address those areas w/ the maturing youth we have, we will be a force for years to come. :rocker:

    Brady was OK except for the INT.

    BS no PI call on a Crumpler catch.
    Crumpler misses a sure TD.
    (Not really blaming Crumpler for loss here)

    I think if there is no INT and Crumpler makes that catch, we are up 14-0 or 14-3 or 14-7, and the complexion of the game is different immensely.

    That drive to open the 2nd half was crucial, we needed a touchdown to swing the momentum, gain some confidence, and obviously and most importantly to gain points. I believe this is the drive that was halted by a NO PI call on the Jets defense, and this really really hurt us. I'm not blaming the refs for the loss, but they surely didn't help.

    It is a case of Brady getting too much credit when the defense was great and as the defense declined the latter part of last decade into the present, Brady has taken too much blame. The mantra "defense wins championships" is a cliche for good reason.

    This Patriots team needs to solidify the lines and develop leadership to better cope and persevere during times of trouble.

    That's the "curse" that will follow Brady throughout his career: he had so much success so quickly that we basically expect greatness, and consider merely good to be a letdown.

    After all, this is, statistically speaking, nowhere near his worst game, even in terms of the playoffs.

    The amount of help he's had has also gone way down since that 10-0 start. Peyton Manning has proved it. Elite QBs can't win alone.

    Since 2005 Peyton Manning is 6-5 in the postseason, two Super Bowls, one ring. Tom Brady is 5-5, one Super Bowl, no rings

    When was he ever on? He has always been solid, but not spectacular.
    Can you name me 5 huge throws he's made in 19 playoff games? He finds the open man and does his job. Snow Bowl, 3 Super Bowls, etc - he made solid plays, but never huge throws into tight coverage. He finds the open man (nothing wrong with this). He was on good teams that played smart football and stuck it out long enough to pull if out in final minutes. (Sounds alot like Mark Sanchez though there is a world of difference between the two).

    I think TB is at the point in his career where he has to make those huge throws to get the team going, but I can't seem to recall him ever being THAT kind of QB even in the SB years.

    This is about as spot on as it could be said. Brady has always been on good teams. The most successful Patriot teams didn't feature him as the sole source of offensive firepower. No, those teams won with Brady being a top tier game manager. The biggest problem is he doesn't have that veteran team behind him anymore and he can't gunsling all by himself as well as Manning. Its not really Brady's fault, you really have to blame Belichick for putting Brady in a bad spot where he wasn't meant to succeed.

    I love the Pats since they were born in 1960, but I'm not married to any particular coaches or players. Brady looked out of it today. He looked tired, half-hearted, way too introspective, and not animated with his team-mates. He looked tighter than a banjo string, almost ready to snap. Every shot I saw of him he was sitting alone and looking out with a vacant stare. Tom was definitely OFF today. Whether all the smack talk got to him, or Giselle is telling him he doesn't need this kind of life any more, or he is getting to old and comfortable to play anymore ... might be a combination of all. But Brady clearly was not himself today.

    But I put this loss on Belichick. He got owned by Rex Ryan. When Ryan publicly challenged BB last Sunday/Monday, Belichick tried to laugh it off. I knew right then we were in trouble. When a junior gets in your grill and challenges you, and you don't take the opportunity to "educate" the junior, you get owned by junior. By letting Ryan talk his smack unopposed, BB let Ryan get into the Pats players' heads. Ryan successfully shielded his own Jets players while simultaneously pushing BB around in front of the Pats players. Pats play was crappy today.

    BB played like the underdog today, not the big favorite. He played scared and tentative, like Ryan was in his head, too. VERY weak showing. Guess Bill's gotten all soft and comfortable now, what with the big salary and easy living. Who wants to fight when you're living like that????

    How so?? Belichick got pawned, plain and simple. He got out-coached, he got out-psyched by a big-mouth who called BB's bluff. BB had no answer. Belichick got owned by Ryan, plain and simple.
