In the Starting Line-Up
Utter load of BS… Troy Brown returned a punt in the AFC Championship game 55 yards for a TD. How did Brady help on that score, was he out there blocking?That only worked because of Brady being able to lead game winning drives, have strong poise, and maximize what he had. And yes, I know the Pats had a good defense.
Even with the Pats defense, Bledsoe wasn't going to accomplish what Brady did. There's a reason people thought the Pats were dead in the water when Bledsoe got hurt. Because people thought the team wasn't that great.
Outside of them though? Peyton's colts and broncos had good receivers. The steelers had good receivers.
Fitzgerald rarely had good QB play - the few times he did, the Cardinals went to the super bowl and nfc title game.
Julio jones and the falcons made the super bowl... and played well... and would have if the Pats had literally any other QB in the league playing for them that day
I don't get it man. Just look at history. Receivers are damned important. I Don't know why you're still arguing this ♂️
No, he wasn’t. In fact he was injured and Bledsoe was out there throwing a TD pass to David Patten. Tom doesn’t have ring #1 without his teammates.
Giving Tom credit for other players success is nonsense. When Edelman was making an impossible diving reception in the super bowl comeback versus the Falcons, he was making Tom look good… not the other way around.
Receivers are important…. the notion that they only arrive via first round draft picks or as expensive free agents is utter nonsense.
Terrell Ownes was a 3rd round pick, Steve Smith was a 3rd round pick, Chris Carter was a 4th round pick, Stefon Diggs was a 5th round pick, Tyreek Hill was a 5th round pick.
The best way to find super weapons is to draft and develop them. Overpaying for names isn’t the only way. And for all we know Thornton or Marcus Jones can become that.
