In the Starting Line-Up
Umm how did they protect him exactly? Again you are guessing on something that never happened based on nothing. lol. Oh they would have because ummm...yeah...There was never a game they had brady go out there hand off 50 times. I am not even sure why Brady is even brought up here. Brady and Mac are different QB's, people need to be ok with that and stop acting like they are and do the same things.
just responding to a post that asked "do they do that if they have tom brady"
in my opinion, yes, if they had tom brady circa 2001-2002, under those circumstances, with the game unfolding the way it did, it turns out very similar
if they had tom brady 2021 last night? they might throw a few more times.......
i also question if the coaching staff of 2001/2002 had the fortitude to stick to a gameplan like that to make it work......the way things played out last night was more about the coaching staff than it was about WHO was throwing the ball (or not throwing, as the case may be)
i also think if there's any two QBs who can really handle only throwing 3 times in a game and be happy with the win, it'd be tom and mac.......they are cut from the same cloth and both played for the right organization......
