    I would have thought 60 million would be quite enough at the moment.

    No way in hell. Hes already taken a PR hit with the "BridgetGate" thing. His best move is to win a 4th ring and smile.

    I agree. Also, it's not as though he has done anything lately to deserve a raise. Three game changing picks in his last four playoff games isn't exactly the kind of statistic that supports an argument for a pay raise.

    Great point. He flopped in Denver in 06, was spotty vs SD and threw a pick to end the season. TB needs more playmakers on the outside. Period.

    brady took less money to save cap space for the brass to get people signed...

    from what i'm seeing in the potential Thomas signing, brady is finally getting his signings

    so there'd be less reason for brady to ask for more money

    well you have to expect him to throw the ball with less than 2:00 in the game when they are trailing....

    you're not going to move down the field while conserving time by running the ball


    when opposing defenses KNOW brady's throwing the ball, then they'll purposely come out in dime and quarter formations...its hard to disguise your play, when defenses already know that you're throwing the ball

    brady did what he had to do, AND, more importantly, the players around him did what they could, and as a result, they won some games they shouldve lost, and lost games that they, shouldve lost...

    Oh stuff a sock in it.

    His deal was done under an expiring cap and structured in a way that would indicate they plan on incrementally extending him to retirement age probably after the 2008 season and before they have to decide what to to with Seymour heading into his final contract season in 2009.

    a prime example of that, besides TB, is peyton manning......he never won a SB let alone play in one, so the only thing that was keeping him happy was his obsurd amount of money...now that he's finally won one, theres nothing sweeter, (well maybe winning another one, or 3 out of 4, and counting, like his rival :cool:) manning has agreed take less money or restructure his contract so that there can be cap space....

    Well he will have a little mouth to feed soon... of course the tax deduction will given him a little extra income anyway, so.... no I think he should be fine.
