    It's a satire column. Read the bottom of the article.

    I just don't get this idea that Brady can't be a great football player because he married a supermodel. I hear it all the time and it just baffles me. It's seriously one of the dumbest things I've EVER heard.

    yea, we all know how all of the great QBs are washed up at 32, like

    Montana... nope
    Marino... nope
    Elway... nope
    Unitas... nope


    Well, I guess almost none of the great QBs are ever washed up at 32. Except the Mannings, I hope.

    Brady isnt Romo!! He's used to having super model girlfriends. Romo is with Jessica Simpson and Romo cant even win a playoff game!

    Jessica Simpson does not even come close to Gisele Bundchen on just about every level.

    I agree! Brady has been dating super models for a while. Romo gets one celebrity gf, gets whipped and thinks more of Simpson than the game! you wonder why Simpson doesnt go to his games anymore!

    You know, RETARD is a really offensive word.
    Children suffering from mental retardation did not chose that condition. They do not harm anyone, in fact, if you spend time with them, it is usually rewarding.
    To use the term RETARD as a derogatory criticism of someone who is not handicapped is to say they are so far beneath you that you would compare them to the RETARD because you are better than him. After all you weren't born with that disability, so aren't you great.

    Ironically, you called a guy writing a SATIRE article a RETARD because you werent intellingent enough to understand HE WAS KIDDING.

    I don't think that people are aware that it is offensive to people that have special needs children, and we do have several posters here that have them.

    I know that I was not aware of it until I saw a member here say something a year or two ago. Since then I've received a couple of PM's from posters regarding the use of that word by others.

    It's a word that I have just never used but others do without being aware that could be hurtful to some others. It's not being PC to be considerate to those who are dealing with something that most of us don't have to deal with.

    So, now more are aware and hopefully will try to use a different word when posting.

    The identification of the author at the bottom may be a clue:

    DJ Gallo is the founder and sole writer of the sports satire site SportsPickle.com. He also is a regular contributor to ESPN The Magazine and has written for The Onion and Cracked.

    Of course it's real. It's the offseason and the writers need something to write about.

    Nice article, looks like it's almost exclusively targetted at the sportswriters and commentators who berate him for actually doing something with his life outside of football- and with a beautiful woman no less.

    Tongue in cheek and a thinker, but nice read.

    Sadly, it appears that many posters are immune to such "clues." :rolleyes:

    So in answer to the thread title question:

    IT'S

    JOKE
