On some SNF games, they moved Rodney out and Simms in. Harrison was doing a great job and at times even agreeing with Mr Potato Head Dungy. Some of Rodneys suits and tie combinations were sharp as hell.

I could not help but believe that Daddy Simms got Sonny Boy the gig.

Team Bill's Worst Nightmare
Just looked it up. Brady has put up 30 or more points in 11 out of his last 14 games ( winning 2/3 when less than 30 JAX and SB53). Prior to that, he put up more than 30 in 10/31 playoff games.......

It meshes with what I thought I’d seen too. I don’t know if this lines up exactly, but I’ve noticed a more aggressive approach by Brady in playoff games beginning somewhere in the 2013/2014 timeframe. In 2010 (Jets), 2011 (Ravens and Giants), and 2012 (Ravens) they were shut down, but I think part of it was self-inflicted too. Very conservative gameplans, or maybe it was Brady checking down constantly and playing right into the hands of those defenses. I noticed Brady taking more risks and looking for the big play in that 2014 Ravens comeback and since then, it seems like he’s just fine throwing some INTs if need be; the bigger risk is wasting the potential for big plays...dinking and dunking your way to 6.0 yards per attempt and playing it safe worked better during the first dynasty than the second one.

Rodgers got five turnovers from D/ST in the 2014 NFCCG. And they sacked Wilson five times. We keep hearing about how Brady got so lucky with short fields. Rodgers got them 6 points on 5 turnovers, and two of those were deep in Seattle territory.

Then of course, the football gods tried to hand him the game against Tampa, as Brady threw an astonishingly terrible three interceptions on consecutive drives. Not getting any luck in the postseason? A career full of never having the opportunities? How can you ever get one as prime as that?

Both of these were legacy games and also during MVP seasons.

Someone said it recently about Brady: he always does the minimum required to win. At first I thought it was a backhanded compliment, but then it kind of clicked. You can always find reasons he “shoulda lost” or so-and-so ”coulda won by more” but Brady always finds himself on the winning side. He ”got bailed out” and yet other QBs get a great defensive effort or some breaks, too, but they still come out with an L.

I haven't rewatched the 2014 NFCCG, but one of my memories is that the Packers never tested Richard Sherman after he hurt his arm. At that time in his career, Sherman was a shut down corner and teams generally avoided throwing in his direction. The Packers approach that day was no different, but I was surprised they didn't deviate from that after Sherman's injury. If it was noticeable on TV, the Packers had to see that his injured arm was just dangling by his side. You hear stories of receivers coming back to the huddle and telling their QB "They just put in a back up on me" or "The guy covering me just sprained his ankle." The blame doesn't entirely go on Rodgers as the Packers didn't even call any running plays to Sherman's side of the field. Still, I have to believe a great QB would have recognized this and tried to exploit it regardless of what the game plan was.

And his passing yards were 256 ypg in first 31 playoff games and 318 ypg in last 14 games, a 24% increase which validates your point....

Tom takes what they give him. Against the Falcons defense, only a few things we tried worked - so we did that. Over and over. Relentlessly.

The second three title teams were different from the first three.

But also, 2016 Tom is simply a different, older, wiser, smarter more experienced player than 2003 Tom.

Just as 1985 Steve Grogan is simply a different, older, wiser, smarter more experienced player than 1978 Steve.

Well, the Pats didn't test Sherman either. The Pats threw his way one time the entire game. Obviously, NE won anyway, but they didn't go after Sherman any more than GB did.
