while we all lick our wounds and prepare for the long season ahead, can i ask the obvious question? if you look at the history of BB and the Pats, is it factual to say the following?: from the moment TB became starting QB to the moment he stopped, the Pats have been a serious NFL contender and force. before TB, BB and the pats were weak. and after TB, BB and the Pats are weak. im pretty sure this is no exaggeration. i would also point out that the QB IS the most important position. And he does change the whole game, including defense, by the amount of risk he takes and how he performs keeping the D off the field, not taking sacks, managing the game, hitting wide open receivers, and taking risk per the situation. (of course, even TB cant win a game if the O-Line cant block anyone, or Reche Caldwell cant catch an easy pass.) but dont the facts seem to indicate its TB not BB? there i said it.
