It has to be asked, right? Tom Brady, my favorite player of all time in the NFL. Best Patriot ever, Best QB I personally have ever seen was not himself in the AFC Championship game and in the Superbowl! WHY? What is up with that? Tom had an amazing year. Possibly the best season by a QB or even NFL player in the history of the NFL. He was simply amazing for 17 straight game. Then.... He showed little to no emotion in the last two games of the year. The two biggest game of the year. Tom had his head down, looked uninterested, looked upset, mad, distracted. He was unengaged in his surroundings, showed no interest in his teammates. Hurt? I doubt it! Tom surely had an ankle thing, but it was not the reason for his lack of passion. Even with that said, the injury happened late in the AFCC - so that is not a reason to start the game so lethargic, right? We have been watching Tom Brady lead this team for 7 years and aside from the beginning of last year when we all worried about his bad body language in losing Branch and Givens, I have never seen him so out of it. Brady was on the verge of completing the best season of all time as a team and as a player, but he was mentally not there in the last two games - the two biggest games of his life. If not for the defense and injuries to the Chargers, we would lost the AFCC due to Tom's turnovers and overall poor performance. I just cannot imagine why Tom went from being so passionate, so on fire, so dead on accurate to being Rex Grossman. I keep kidding myself thinking, no I am reading way to into this, but I watched that horrible game again and there he was this imposter wearing #12 - that guy was NOT Tom Brady! This teams feeds off of Brady. A guy who could be one of the greatest team leaders in sports history. His attitude is imperative to the success of this team. Why did he not bring it??? He was freaking sulking, yelling at Welker, head down on the sidelines. What the h*ll. I feel so let down by Brady and I hate myself for it since he has given us so much. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Why did we lose Tom Brady with 2 games to go?
