    This guy's a regular Sherlock Holmes, eh?

    ESPN Page 2 - Easterbrook: Temporary hero

    Apparently mutual exclusions are the only way to divine the truth at BSPN. Obviously, both Cassel and Brady were evaluated to be better quarterbacks than most expected and coached into impressive specimens of the "complete QB" (mental toughness, amnesia, decision-making, accuracy, etc...)



    Clearly the system is a big factor and requires the right QB's for the job. We all knew the way this year ended would leave a shadow over Tom or Bill for the media.

    It will be good next year to see the Patriots utterly terrorize the league, fresh off a Lombardi run with a High School QB. There will be no crow left on the earth to eat.

    Re: Easterbrook: The Pat's System Seems More Important Than Brady

    What he's missing is that Brady helped create the system. This team, this system, the Patriots offense, was in horrible state before Mo Lewis ushered in the Brady era. The "system" before Brady was 5-13. Since then it's got 3 SBs, 4 AFC championships, and a perfect regular season.


    That and the fact that the team has gone from perfection to fighting to make the playoffs. But I wouldn't expect Easterbrook to get that, he's obviously shown in the past he has no love for Brady.

    It is a proven fact that reading Gregg Easterbrook's columns causes brain damage. Who really cares what this moron thinks? He is a racist, perverted failed political analyst who writes a rambling weekly article with conspiracy theories and T&A, but not much substance.

    Always follow this rule: ESPN Page 2 writers are an assembly of hacks, nutjobs, and Bill Simmons (who hates to be associated with his cohorts).

    BSPN and their mutual exclusivity!

    Geez!

    A great QB is made better by a coach that creates a system that maximizes that players effectiveness.

    The two kind of go hand in hand...

    Re: Easterbrook: The Pat's System Seems More Important Than Brady

    Earlier in the season, he argued that the Pats success was all about Brady, and that Brady's injury exposed Belichick as being a bad coach.

    One funny thing about Easterbrook is that I was reading a blog about academia the other day, and even outside the sports world Easterbrook is considered a hack. Read this:
    This writer was attacking Paglia, and the first thing that came to his mind when he was trying to compare her to another horribly ridiculous hack was Easterbrook.

    We all knew this was coming. In away I hope Brady is hearing alot of people have givin up on him or think he was never that good. Anybody in this system with Moss can throw for 50 tds.:disagreement:

    Yeah, it's hard to imagine that next year won't involve RELENTLESS running up of the score. :D

    Yep Pats system seems more important than Tom Brady...That's why over the next two years he's on the Books for almost $25Mill not counting this year.:rolleyes: I say lets cut our losses now and go with Matt Cassel he's younger and might be more inclined to a cap friendly deal.:snob: Where do some of these writers get off?:disagreement:

    Absolutely. That's why Culpepper or Vinny or any QB with a pulse could have succeeded here once Bill cleaned up the crap... Speaks volumes about Rohan though...

    The only caveat I would attach to that statement is that most missives from "Academia" are as biased and convoluted as the examples they offer. They (academia) have a vested interest in protecting their turf and maintaining the facade that they are in some manner important.

    After years in the storied halls, I left for other areas because there simply was no way to get meaningful work done when you had to compete with room-filling egos and dueling political and social agendas. Sigh. :eek:

    I will say this about Pajamas Media: They, unlike many other new media organizations, at least have a staff that can write coherently and most often with objectivity.

    As to Greggy.. well, I understand he is having a statue commissioned of Earnest Wilford for his son's next birthday. I think someone could write an interesting thesis on his strange fascination with this one particular player.

    Re: Easterbrook: The Pat's System Seems More Important Than Brady

    So now we are back to Brady being nothing more than a system QB. Thank God Brady is much more gracious than me. The way the fans in this town have turned on him is disgusting. I'm left to wonder what he did to deserve that? If I was him, I'd pack up my gear say my goodbyes and tell my agent to work out a trade or cut. He's dead in this town if he stays anyway. Who would root for him? It's amazing how one injury wipes out 7 years of production.

    Re: Easterbrook: The Pat's System Seems More Important Than Brady

    How about this theory:

    Having the best "system" is built on finding the very best QB talent and nurturing that talent for production on the field.

    Does anyone think Vince Young would be successful in New England?

    Does anyone think TB would have flourished in Oakland?

    Why is this always a one sided equation?

    Sounds like you're the one with the agenda.

    Academics have a job to do.

    They have a vested interest in protecting their turf?

    Duh!

    Doesn't everyone? Who doesn't?

    Sounds like you left there after spending a lot of time and hold a grudge because you didn't get to where you wanted to end up. And the fact that you read Pajamas Media at all and call them objective tells me everything I need to know about why you'd attack academia.

    As for pajamas media, the blogger wasn't referring to a website. He was referring to the name for people who are essentially no more qualified than we are for posting our thoughts on the internet. That's why he didn't use capitals in referring to pm.

    I feel confident in knowing that Brady is as smart as I and 99% of Pats fans give him credit for...this is just 1% trying to stir the pot, and 99% of that 1 percent are the media :blahblah: that love us...and we all know how i feel about the media...:rolleyes:

    Again, I feel sorry for them and their agenda...

    Re: Easterbrook: The Pat's System Seems More Important Than Brady

    What a toad.

    Cassel's success probably has nothing to do with Bioli masterfully picking an talented, yet unheralded guy that noone saw much in and then having him tutored by unarguably the BEST QB of a generation (if not ever) for a few years. Yeah, Cassel is a product of the BB/Brady system, and that's why he is succeding. But the lets not forget the Brady part of the Brady/BB system.

    Easterbunny is so stupid, he thinks I could probably step right in there and make the pro bowl. :rolleyes: Why the fukc does anyone read what this stool writes is something I'll never know. :confused:
