    Colt fans (and others) often point to Tom Brady's o-line as the reason for his success as a QB. With stupid lines like, "if my grandma had as much time as Brady has in the pocket, she could make a completion."

    This year Brady has had an outstanding o-line that has not always been the case, in fact Brady (203) has been sacked more times then Peyton Manning (191) and Brady has played three less years.

    So who is the one getting better protection in the pocket, Colt fans?

    I just stumbled on that stat, and wanted to refute the often cited argument that Brady has always had time in the pocket, when in fact that has not always been the case.

    Most people have referred to his awesome offensive line THIS YEAR, not sure how past year's stats are important, or even interesting at this point.

    I'll have to agree with the above poster. I challenge you to find one source that states "Brady has always had time in the pocket".

    I think you meant to post this troll baiting crap in the VLR seeing as this is Superbowl week and we're playing the other Manning. For someone who crafted their posting identity after BB, you really don't get it at all.

    The Colts boards are ripe with jealousy. There are threads from supporting the Giants to Brady sucks because of his game against the Chargers. They know that they're quickly becoming an afterthought for this decade and they're tragically trying to hold onto and trying to convince themselves that they're more relevant because of imaginary criteria.


    BTW, I've got to say, that people who go to other boards and wish for that other team to beat us because they couldn't are the biggest crybaby whiners for fans...period. It's like getting your ass kicked on the playground and wanting someone else to beat up the bully because you couldn't get the job done.
