    I dont know, remember those last plays of the superbowl? He launched that ball, I mean that thing flew! Moss would have caught it had the entire giants roster not been on him, but as far as the throw, that was impressive.

    His deep ball is fine -- at least average, perhaps a bit above. Brady's biggest weakness is running with the football.

    I think Brady's achilles heel is probably throwing off his backfoot. Some of those throws in the San Diego playoff game weren't his better ones. With this being said, he's not that bad when fading away in the pocket either, remember his pass to Stallworth in the divisional game, that was unreal. Other than that, Tom Brady doesn't have a weakness, he has one of the best deep ball throws in the game. He has a cannon and it is probably the most accurate in the NFL. Remember Moss to Brady to Gaffney, holy toledo.

    I don't think it is his weakest, but maybe the weakest area he could improve upon. I don't like his playaction fake much, he does not sell it enough. Now when he does playaction his QB Rating is something like 150 so it can't be too bad, but I rarely see Tommy playfake and truly believe the RB has the ball.

    Are you freakin' nuts? He threw TWO back to Back 70 yard bombs to Randy in the final seconds of the Superbowl......not to mention the 50th TD to Randy (that was deep) or perhaps the two to Randy in the End Zone during the first Dolphins game.....or the First TD to Randy in the Jets game...I could go on for a while.

    The area he needs to work on or develop is his mobility and rolling out of the pocket. Had he had a little more quickness, perhaps he could have gotten away from the Giants D Line. :mad:

    But this is really something your born with and seeing how he's probably the greatest QB to play the game, I'll take any flaw he has over any other QB playing the game today.

    He could improve some foot speed out of the snap.
    As long as he gets 3+ seconds to dish the ball.

    Other than that Tom rocks!

    He is pretty average with some specific throws (medium to deep out throws?). He always seems to throw it way too high and inaccurately on those.

    I'd say he did a good job with it on that touchdown to Randy over the middle during the Steelers game - You remember the corner looking back at Anthony Smith like "Where the hell were you?". Nice!:p

    I always thought he had the second best PA in football (behind Manning).

    Brady's "problem areas"

    1. An insatiable fan base that starts stupid threads like this one and the one questioning our WR core.

    2. Paparazzi that annoys him when he visits his girlfriend.

    3. A really messed up situation when he dumped the mother of his child while she was pregnant.

    4. He has been seen wearing the devils clothing. (A Yankee's cap)

    That pretty much sums it up.

    No Jersey Selected

    Throwing on the run is his one and only weakness.

    Mobility. Brady's not exactly fleet of foot.

    Other than that it's all nit-picking. He's the modern day Joe Montana for cryin' out loud!



    And it's entirely possible that as much as Brady will be able to teach K.O. a thing or three (or thirty) about playing QB in the NFL, it's also possible that K.O. might be able to help Brady with his running ability/ability to avoid tacklers. You never know.

    Of course, I hope that doesn't happen.... ;)

    His mobility is a problem. He needs to move and throws the ball at the same time.

    Is it difficult for you to chase and knock a guy down while he doesn't move around.?

    The only problem with a fan like you is there no room for improvement for a perfect person such as BB and TB.
