    An opinion piece that BB is once again the best GM in football, I agree. Letting his LT walk two years in a row, a fairly novel approach to Free Agency and team building. Then there is all the hardware...

    Now if he could only be nicer to the press and treat them with kid gloves as they ask idiotic questions, he might just be perfect...

    I always liked his response. “Someday we will be able to sit down and talk about all that but right now, we’re on to 2019

    I have this image in my head of him, several years from now. It's 2030 and he's coming home from his retirement press conference. He sits down in his recliner, finally ready to let go of the moment and reflect on his career and the legacy he built. Then suddenly lets out a huge, "F*CK! We could have been 19-0 in 2007..."

    Felger and Mazz were going off on BB yesterday because Brady is not in passing camp throwing to new targets......their argument was that it doesn't matter that he wins superbowls, that's just wrong

    there's one in every crowd....in this case, two

    It’s amazing how successful the team has been even with a streak of relatively poor drafts in recent years. Even when he misses in the draft he has found some UDFA’s who play/played well and found some 2nd or 3rd tier free agents to fill out the roster. I know a lot of it is Bill’s coaching and Brady covering up some of the draft misses but even then still it’s impressive.

    I love the idea that Brady led an offense that -- even with a 13 point Super Bowl performance -- averaged over 30 points per game in the postseason, with Julian Edelman, James White, and the last gasp of Rob Gronkowski as his only consistent weapons, without having gone through OTA's. Yet when it happens again this year, suddenly NOW it's going to be a problem again?

    15 of 22 starters last year were pats draft picks......and one was a UDFA..........I'd say they've done pretty well

    The 2017 draft produced one solid role player.
    The 2016 draft produced one starter and 2 backup/rotational players.
    The 2015 draft produced 2 studs (one now gone) an underwhelming starter and a special teamer.
    The 2014 draft produced a great role player, a short time starter and a couple backups.

    Not terrible drafting but definitely a few underwhelming in a few years.

    this does nothing to refute my point.....there was only one playoff team with more drafted starters than the pats......the bottom line is the bottom line......case closed

    White kind of disappeared after halftime in kc tho , wonder what happened there. He beasted against sd and first half of kc.

    But yeah fortunately those 3 were enough to carry the passing game, 30 ppg is impressive for any offense in the playoffs where offenses tend to be more grounded.

    My guess without going back to re-watch would be KC started to focus on him more. But regardless, my overall point was that 2018/19 was far from Brady's best and deepest crop of weapons, and yet he put up numbers just a tick lower than his MVP 2017 season and obviously did alright overall in the playoffs. I think he's earned the benefit of the doubt on offseason programs.

    I bet he never talks about it. I also bet we’re going 19-0 this year! Going to the bowl and there’s nothing any one can do to stop us.. not even Austin Powers! Mug aaa muh ha ha

    I also eagerly await his book...he's gonna write a book or have it written by someone else... He's too much of a football historian to not to, IMO. Cannot wait for him to air all the dirty laundry about the league.....
