    Re: T.Brady Wolverines Highlights..

    I know it's a highlight reel but seriously, how the hell does one look at that
    and not take a flier in at least the 2nd or 3rd round? Amazing! The 199th
    pick in the draft...

    It had to have been his size. He was quite skinny for a college QB.

    His legs were quite thin back then.

    Also maybe his speed. Did you guys see at :38 seconds Brady's run? LOL he looked like he was pulling a truck behind him! The one great thing about Brady that this highlight reel will never show is his will to improve. He is probably 10 times faster now than he was in college!

    3 things I thought while I was watching that:

    1) He was absolutely FRAIL
    2) Those are exactly the throws he is making now, as well as his reactions to the blitz
    3) I finally forgive him for the TDs against my Buckeyes

    I think that any NFL GM watching that film would have drafted him in the first round IF he gained 20 lbs. I just saw EVERY quality that makes him the best QB in the NFL, with the exception of the most important (that it is impossible to see in a 4 min film) his ability to JUST WIN.

    BB is on record as saying he was almost afraid to put Brady into games in his rookie year because he was so frail.
    I have absolutely no doubt that he dropped to the 6th round SOLELY because teams felt he was simply too small to make it in the NFL, and also absolutely no doubt that if he didnt work his @ss off from the day he was drafted until his second year, and get bigger and stronger, he never would have made it in the NFL.

    wow, he was a beanstock back then. Still, he showed good poise in the pocket back then. No way he should have gone in the 6th round.

    Amazing how the way he operates is exactly the same now as it was then.

    Of course, David Terrell looked fantastic in that video too.

    Alright, this seems like a good time to tell my I met Tom and made a jerk of myself story since everyone is picking on his speed. First, you have to understand my obsession with him, it's over the top.

    At Izzo's first Karaoke party I did some "maneuvering" and got up to the VIP room and was face to face with Tom. What did I do? Told him how great I thought he was and then proceeded to ask him if Drew left him his shoes? he said "What are you talking about?" I said sometimes I swear at you because everyone is in double coverage and you have a six yard hole. Why can't you just run the ball dammit? You've got Drew's cement shoes on.
    He started laughing and said "Okay, now you've seen me up close and see how frickin lanky I am, trust me, you don't want me doing anything other than throwing it. I'm ridiculously bad at running."

    Ever since that conversation? he's been running it a little more. That's right, it's all due to some girl questioning his playmaking abilities! And if you think I don't say that to the tv and everyone in my house everytime he runs the ball, you are crazy.

    I apologize for missing something that may be very obvious to others but why did he switch from #10 to #12 ?

    199th picks don't have their choice of numbers in the pros. It was already taken.

    Thanks for the link....great to see Tom throwing all those TD passes. As others have said he makes similar moves to this day. No expert on the college game or the draft process but thin or not he still looks like a QB who should have gone before the 199th pick....thankfully for us he didn't :rocker:

    Not to mention the 2000 Orange Bowl game, wher Brady basically willed Michigan to a huge win over 'Bama...

    Brady hit David Terrell, who I think was the game MVP, with a sweet 30 yard TD for Michigan's first score and then in OT he hit the TE for a TD on Michigan's first possession. Anthony Thomas was the running back on that team, too. Quite a squad!

    Tom might have had 3 or 4 TDs in that game.

    I remember him managing that game like a pro and I was like, "Who the fark is this kid?"

    I had never heard of him before that day. The TV said he had spent his career behind Drew Henson & Brian Griese! What a joke!

    Who would you want now, Henson, Griese or Brady?!?!? LOL!

    Hindsight's 20/20!

    Brady still holds the record for most passing yards in an Orange Bowl. That's why I laugh at haters when they say Brady was nothing in college.

    Too bad that is lore. Drew Henson never started a game at Michigan while Tom Brady was a Wolverine. I've re-hashed the Brady/Henson debate on this board a couple of times, I believe. I've addressed some of the Brady-UM myths in the past, most notably when the Moving the Chains book came out. A synopsis is here:

    As both a friend of Tom's and a member of the UM football family, it's one of the wrongful media claims that annoys me to no end.

    What I found especially interesting were the times that Brady threw touchdowns into double coverage. It happened at least twice here. Reminded me of some throws to Moss.
