The best quarterback in football would plainly assert himself and win a crucial late season game against a dubious opponent. If Brady still is the best, as many here claim on a regular basis, then he has no more time to develop, improve, or refine anything; now is the moment Brady must excel. Brady didn't play well last year in Denver and since then he has not looked anything like the best QB in football in the Pat's big games except for the tilt in Cincy. This is Brady's time to restate his dominance to the league and his team. At some point a superstar needs to put on his cape and drag everyone around him to a higher level. Brady hasn't had the skill he's used to on the outside, and he has seemed at odds with his OC, but Brady isn't getting paid $17million/yr to be an accomplice in mediocrity. He is being paid to be better than anyone around him. The truth is that if the Pat's lose this game the players will worry this team isn't headed for another SB, too many doubts will have remained unaswered for that kind of confidence to be instilled. But Brady is the lone player on our squad who has the distinct ability to rise above any supposed limitations and play at a level no one else on the field can match. He's done it before, now is the time to do it again.
