    Biggest difference today was that Tom is finally making the deep throws.

    IMO, he's back. Not just back, but 2007 back.

    Tennessee is awful, don't get me wrong.

    But Tom hit open receivers down the field, which he hasn't really been able to do this season. Moss was wide open against Denver but Brady missed him by a mile. But today, Brady hit his open receivers, and not just on one big play but on almost every long ball. I can't recall one awful throw that was nowhere near the receiver. And he did it in windy, snowy conditions.

    He's back.

    i want to see him hit throws like that for several games before I assume he's 100%, but it was great to see him play like that today

    No. That was against a terrible Titans secondary. It's going to do wonders for his confidence though.

    Well ... I for one hope he doesn't think he's back.

    Knowing how Tom goes about his business - he is not satasfied at all.;)

    Brady looked okay today. Still not always hitting receivers in stride, though. Today was mostly the Titans looking like tits.

    The Titans secondary is dreadful due to injuries. Tom played great which is very nice to see.
    But it was boys against men.

    You're full of shyte.............

    Don't get me wrong, Tenn sucks......... but Brady is so much more crisp in his throws than at any other time this season........... And that is not even debatable (unless you are a moron). :rolleyes:

    I won't say he's all the way back, but he is way further ahead then we might have thought.

    I think BRian HOyer could have had 4 TDs if he played the entire game.

    Exactly. Tennessee might have trotted out the worst professional secondary I've ever seen, but just hitting an open randy moss was a huge improvement from the past few weeks. If Brady can hit Moss when he gets wide open down the field, that's an extra touchdown per game versus what he was showing the previous few weeks...

    It's interesting that Brady was pulled just after the half. If he hadn't been, there's a very real possibility they could have breached triple digit points at the pace (45 @ half)

    That said, no need to risk injury to Brady.

    Apparently, Brady's arm is so strong that, if he has a strong wind blowing in his face for the rest of the season, he'll never overthrow another receiver again. :D

    Seriously, it's tough to judge. The Titans literally quit from Q1. Words like that get bandied around pretty often when a team get its butt whopped, but this time I think it is completely accurate.

    Brady looked very good. Not quite perfect, but VERY good. I don't care how bad the Titans are. Six touchdown passes is ****ing phenomenal. Five in one quarter is even better. QBs who are just "okay" don't do that to any team.

    gee this board is knee jerk. brady played well against a struggling team and it was a great win... i don't think is says anything about him being "back" or not. if he starts to play at a consistently high level then we can make that call in a few games

    Six TDs is better than "well." I'm not saying he's back season-wise, but damn.

    If Brady had struggled today against that defense, then I would have started to worry. Brady did what a good QB should do against a weak opponent. If he didn't, then I would start to wonder if we have a problem here. The man is coming back from reconstructive surgery on his knee. Have patience my friends. I think that this game is a good step in the right direction. :)

    Absolutely. A blowout win going into the bye is a gift from God.

    (Especially if it means development of the defense during the time off.)

    Brady's biggest problem has been hitting open receivers down the field. Today, he was able to consistently do that for the first time since his injury, in difficult conditions as well.

    I know the Titans secondary is banged-up, which is why he had so many opportunities to connect on long balls. But that doesn't change the fact that he connected on them. In games past, he'd miss the open guy by a mile.

    Lately, the problems haven't been related to his ability to read a defense, or find the open guy. His accuracy on deep throws was just awful. Today, it wasn't. He stepped into those long throws, didn't miss the open guy, and was incredibly accurate on all of his throws.

    I'm not saying he'll have great games like this all the time, but so long as he can hit open receivers, he'll be just fine, and so will we.

    Not sure. I thought he was back after the Ravens game and that wasn't the case. I think we'll find out for sure when we play Indy.
