    Our focus is on the Buffalo Bills. Just the Buffalo Bills. Man they are a tough bunch. We will be lucky to compete.

    Not the corporate culture here. Kraft silent on Spygate. BB similar. Tommy Boy is a company man. Of all of them, I'd actually expect to see tightly wound BB crack first.

    Brady has class and isn't going to throw anyone under the bus, Rodgers just seems like a smug so & so like Peyton, at least it isn't the phony good guy persona like Brees though.

    Brady will never speak up.

    He always has been a "company man"

    He won't. He hardly spoke out during the players lock out. I have a feeling Brady will run for governor of California later in his life.

    first of all, why would Brady say anything about the officiating? there were bad calls that affected both teams on Sunday...you could argue that if the real refs were there the outcome would have been the same. Nothing the officials did came close to what happened in the GB-Seattle game. A couple of bad PI calls here and there - that happens in regular officiated games too. Also the field goal was borderline...

    Secondly, Brady is buttering up the officials for the Bills game. Do you realize how stupid it would be if Brady or any QB comes out and says "the replacement officials suck?" Guess what, if he does that, I guarantee you there will be more bad calls against the Pats. Better to kiss up to the replacement refs and hope for the best. Nothing Brady says can change the Ravens game.

    Brady doesn't seem to be a guy that reacts emotionally - it's better to be not too low or not too high. Rodgers is a guy that is more outspoken and thinks with his emotions.

    I don't agree with what you said regarding Rodgers. I like what Rodgers is doing. Rodgers is a straight-up guy that will say what he doesn't like. You can call him blunt or whatever, but he's being honest. He says what no one else is willing to say. Fact of the matter is he's right. The refs are bs and the NFL is pure bs right now. Rodgers doesn't bs. Like it or not, he gives you his opinion, and he doesn't care what anyone else thinks about it. The world needs less of this fake facade and more truth.

    He will speak up when he has a burning desire to sit on the bench and watch Mallet play.

    If BB will bench WW for a couple of foot jokes you can bet he will bench Brady for speaking out against refs. You can be sure Spikes will be sitting for the first series against the Bills.

    Rodgers should follow his HC's lead and take a page out of the BB/TFB book. Brees should do the same. Eliminate distractions. Control what you can which is your own play and their's could certainly use some work. Somebody's walking out of Lambeau next Sunday 1-3 or 0-4.

    What exactly is it you'd like Brady to say IllegalContact? Let other people deal with it. The Patriots need to focus on their own performance. They've just gone under .500 and are facing a divisional rival this week with the serious potential to be 1-3.

    Rodgers was the victim. He was supposed to react the way he did!

    From what I've seen of the officiating, it seems offenses have more of an advantage. It's the defensive players that would need to speak out.

    Besdies,Brady already put his name first on the lawsuit against the NFL. Let someone else carry the load this time.

    I don't believe there is anything to be gained by speaking up as others have done. In fact, I believe that, if anything, there is an element of risk involved. Revealing true feelings about the situation carries with it the risk of repercussions from the league, owners and, possibly, the replacement officials. Venting usually makes one feel better in the short term, but, in this case, probably accomplishes little else. If I'm a regular ref, I'm not budging an inch because recent events have provided me with all of the leverage. Unless the league is prepared to capitulate to the refs demands, this isn't likely to be resolved soon. God, I hope I'm wrong.

    Because replacement refs or no replacement refs, Brady would know throwing for just ONE touchdown in a game isn't acceptable...and that's HIS fault, not the officials. Maybe Rodgers should be a true leader and be quiet about it and admit his own flaws in that game before he goes about bad mouthing other people.

    Rodgers threw ZERO TDs on the day...worse than Brady's one...and a meagre 223 yards. He hasn't exactly played like the reigning NFL MVP so far this season. Maybe he should apologise for his sub par play which is tarnishing the product on the field.

    Brady has developed a very specific personna and "brand", some call it a company man.. others see it as focusing on the next team..

    Unless there is something very obvious happens that causes the Pats to lose a game, do not see much possibility of Brady ascending some bully pulpit..

    OTOH what happened to Rogers team, did not happen to Brady's team.. comparing raisins to grapefruit..

    If Rodgers isn;t focusing on the saints and still going on about the Seahawks he's hurting his team.

    Someone rightly said earlier that Bradys focus is on Buffalo.

    I'm happier that he is

    Brady would tell you throwing only one TD or even none is acceptable. What isn't is scoring only 12 points.

    I think part of what is lost in the shuffle over all the ref angst is exacerbated because GB isn't living up to media and fantasy fanboy expectations and this travesty that occurred the other night is allowing many upset individuals to shift the focus and blame. Kudos to McCarthy for at least admitting he's accountable for failing to adjust his game plan throughout the first half. Not that the one he adjusted to worked all that much better. And it's unfortunate for him that Rodgers hasn't reacted the way Brady does in following his HC's lead. Somehow the karma effect in NO being ofer has resulted in less shock at their standing. I think in both cases you have teams and fans and media developed expectations based on pure hubris based in large part on assumptions made about the talent particularly at the QB position. One reason Brady hasn't even managed a sub double digit winning season since 2002 is total lack thereof. He doesn't even subconsciously smirk at all the smoke that periodically gets blown up his skirt. Nor does he react defensively when criticized. He actually dismisses it all the noise and focuses on getting better at something every season and elevating the play and production of everyone surrounding him. That's why even though he's only managed to win 3 and compete in 5 superbowls in the last decade...he's consistently helped this team remain in serious contention throughout the decade.

    There is a world of difference between expectation and hopeful determination that is what sets Brady apart from most of his so called peers not to mention successors. He never makes excuses, he is publicly beyond accountable and privately incredibly demanding, although he also knows how to balance egos in the process. He even has a healthy one of his own. Just a long littany of the many intangibles that seperate him from the rest of the measurables heavy pack. One or another of whom is periodically nipping at his heels in the opinion of mediots and fantasy fans. If it ever comes to it Belichick will find him to be the one player it is virtually impossible to replace in his system and scheme for that reason.

    Rodgers and even Brees should be penning thank you notes to those whose offenses have basically provided them a cover to hide behind and indirectly gotten them off the hook... One of them is going to need a lot more cover after this coming weekend and both should probably be praying for a protracted lockout.

    Not really. It's happened to Brady's team more than once, albeit not on a dramatically officiated hail mary (on which fwiw in 87 that have occurred in the last 5 years never once has PI been called - although had it been being called against us by regular refs wouldn't have surprised most of us). Brady probably internally roils because that's human nature. But he would compose himself within short order and face the media horde intent on baiting him with his stardard response that it never should have come to that because we had opportunities and we failed to capitalize on them throughout the game leaving points on the field instead of putting them on the board.

    I would rather he just concentrate on the game to be honest. MoLewisRocks sums it up pretty well why.
