I know many will think I'm nuts to say this, but Brady's third quarter TD pass to Stallworth was one of my favorite passes of his career. Brady started out 1/7 to start the second half, with the Texans playing man coverage. The Texans, it appeared, had finally figured out the Pats and were doing everything to take away the short-mid passing game, especially over the middle of the field. Brady attempted to hit Stallworth a couple of times, and Lloyd a couple of times, in order to "take the top off" the defense. The backstory, of course, it that Stallworth hasn't played an NFL game in a year and joined the team on Monday- he hasn't played with Brady in a game since 2007. On 3rd and 10, almost everyone in the world was expecting a typical Patriots play, which is to play it safe, particularly with the lead. A screen to Hernandez; maybe a slant to Welker; or even a dumpoff to Woodhead. The concerning part, of course, is that come playoff time, teams realize this is the Patriots' strategy, and if there is a single knock on Brady, it's that he rarely gambles. And if there is one thing that Brett Favre did better than Brady, it was that type of pass. A real f-you pass, the type of play that says "how dare you disrespect my arm." Beautiful play, especially in the context of the game and in the greater context of the Patriots' offensive chinks. And of course, the rest of the game, the field opened up and the Patriots ran the ball down the Texans' throats.
