    I posted this at the end of a much longer thread, but I think it deserves a new one by itself.

    I was as shocked as anyone to see the allegationsmade by Pro FootballTalk that Brady's late game heroics were a product of stealing defensive signals, so I did some stat hunting to find out for myself.

    Football is a game of turnovers. If the Pats were using defensive signals stolen in the first half, you would expect Brady's Interception numbers to drop pretty drastically in the second half of the game, because he would know the coverages etc.

    Wrong. They don't decrease. In fact, in every season but 2004, they increase.

    I will write the first half INT totals first and second half totals second beneath each year.

    2006

    6 10

    2005

    7 9

    2004

    8 6

    2003

    6 8

    2002

    6 8

    2001

    6 7

    Now, even if you were to say that these increased INT's could be attributed to something fluky, like a deflection off a receiver, it would imply that Brady was still throwing into coverage.

    At some point, and I thought about doing this the other night, someone needs to go over the last few years and look at 1st half sacks and offensive production vs 2nd half.
