When did it come out that Bill was "texting Jimmy after every game"? Wow. I didn't know.
I want the team to win SBs. Brady wasn’t winning a SB with this team. If they miss the playoffs for the next 5 years, I’ll be longing for a return - even if it means an early exit. But, after this much success, going 10-6 and losing the first round isn’t enticing.
You strongly believe NE was a contender this season with Brady ? If so, we disagree.
They stuck together for 20 years. That’s amazing. You are putting emphasis on the departure rather than the long stay.
He may have been focused on winning the game but he was utterly determined to do with Butler squirming on the sideline. He was trying to humiliate a player that he had a problem with. True, we don't know exactly what the problem was, but it wasn't sickness related, it wasn't performance related... it was personal and there's no doubt about that because Butler was in uniform and he played in the game.He was focused on winning that game. It was close until the very end, despite the lack of talent (and key reg season injuries) on D. I suspect you are blaming the benching of Butler on that loss ? Firstly, we don’t know the specifics, secondly we can’t be sure his mere presence would’ve made the ultimate difference.
You're right... Brady's not a winner.I’m perfectly fine with « moving on » from Brady. It’s an oversimplification to uniquely blame BB for Brady’s departure. First, NE wasn’t going to win the SB this season, w or w/o Brady.
Bifffins, what is your favorite NFL football team? What are your favorite MLB, NHL and NBA teams? thanks don't lie. You won't get bounced from this firum, truth please.
No. It's "Huh?"You’re a bit of a weirdo, Deus. Welcome back.
If this GIF is to suggest BB wasn’t a big part of the success, agree to disagree. I know you heart Brady.
If, as I suspect, you are astounded that I am suggesting people discredit BB’s impact, then let me give a short compte rendu of the fun you’ve been missing. 39 and unders who’ve seen little but winning have been saying (I paraphrase) :
-it’s 100% Brady
-BB rode coattails all this time
-Weapons, weapons, weapons, where are they ?
-I want my team to be just like Madden
-7 and 9 is the worst and I can’t imagine any team has ever been this horrendous because 7 and 9 is the worst possible record in the world
In closing, weirdo, but our weirdo. Welcome back.
I just can’t get over how one can use this reasoning about SB52:
- Bill has chosen to stonewall everyone about the circumstances, and therefore we can’t him accountable. Because the ultimate judge is the guy who whose legacy and wealth are built on winning games, and he told us he made the right call.
- Because there’s no alternative reality, and we don’t know for certain how a different choice would have played out, we therefore have no solid reason to second guess be benching a player who had played almost all season for a player who was so bad he should never be on a field.
Albert Breer has lost his mind: MMQB: Super Bowles, Watt and Texans Mess, Trevor Lawrence
I was embarrassed just reading what he wrote about Brandin Cooks.
Cooks was traded because he's always been the same Brandin Cooks wherever he went. And he was worth a 1st rounder.
If they traded Cooks to play with anyone other than Brady, you'll have to tell me why so many teams have moved on from him (even though he's a good WR and has talent). But are the Saints, Patriots, Rams and soon the Texans all wrong about the same guy? He is likely an excellent #2, but not capable of doing what you brought him in to do.
In Brady's first game with Cooks, he went deep to him 5 times, 1x 25+ yards, one time 54 yards, and a 26 yard DPI. He went deep to Cooks all year to good affect. But no one here cried when Cooks went away because we didn't see a game breaker. His game was quite similar to Brandon Lloyd's, who was a really really good #2.
I thought Cooks was going to be a great addition in New England, and he could have been had he ever invested the effort into learning a variety of routes, but as it turned out go deep and pretend to go deep and come back for the ball were the only two he ran. Serious disappointment as he has exceptional talent.
I personally don't but the level of disdain for Bill after one 7-9 season is honestly a bit extreme. Especially after six rings. It is fine to disagree with some of what Bill has done, but certain people are almost posting as they want him fired.The notion that if you don’t agree with everything Bill does than you’re a bad fan is ridiculous.
There are definitely a few posters going overboard railing on Bill. That being said twisting yourself into a pretzel to defend his recent personnel moves and shoving Brady out the door with no backup plan is ridiculous. I’ve said it a dozen times now that neither Bill nor Brady would have won 6 rings without the other one.I personally don't but the level of disdain for Bill after one 7-9 season is honestly a bit extreme.

Please could you provide a link where that's precisely what he said?
