    Right on schedule and there will be more to come. I expect nothing less from the media in general. They love to beat a man into the dirt while he's down.
    I refuse to read it, but thanks for the link.

    Yeah it seemed like a rather lame attempt to sound like an a-hole. Something a lot of media people take pride in. To be fair though, it was so bad I did not read much before I clicked out of the page.

    Yes, Tom doesn't care about winning.


    Really?

    "Even Montana handed off to Mallet at some point.. right?"

    That is just the worst sentence I have ever read by any Patriots beat writer.

    Looks like someone got drunk watching the game and didn't sober up before posting a blog.

    That was almost what I was thinking. It was a nasty rant that doesn't really fit what I would consider the standards of a high profile newspaper. Again, it's a little unlike him and I'm surprised he wrote it.

    How did an editor allow this to run less than 12 hours after the game's completion?

    Obviously, the writer is emotionally distraught. Someone should have stopped this.

    Looks to me like Brady had a much better day at work than Eric Wilbur.

    Sadly for Bills fans, Kelly would kill for just 1 of Brady's rings.

    Wilbur can write whatever he wishes. It does not matter.

    This team sure inspires a lot of hate people

    The article is overdone and an overreaction.

    That said, Brady is no longer clutch, and this team finds itself in a position to lose the game at the end too frequently.

    Brady should get blasted. He continues to play poorly in big games. It doesn't help that your coaches call poor games. Wow. How many times does this need to happen before people in NE realize he's not the same QB from early last decade?

    First who the **** is eric wilbur? ....Its not about respectable journalism these days, its about how many hits you can get on on your story. Someone can write a sorry ass hit piece like this and get a lot of hits. In the end the bottom line is Hits = more money.
