  • Why does everyone feel the need to "protect" the Brady legacy?

    I am puzzled by how many in the media are obsessing with the Brady legacy.

    Brady is no longer the Mr. Perfect and it seems like some are having a hard time admitting that:

    1) he was outplayed
    2) Has not had a great playoff year in over 8 years

    He will go into the Hall but, their quest to name him "best ever" is annoying.

    Peytons hurt; Brees isnt in the SB this year.;Romo sux; and they cant fully get behind Eli yet cuz they spent the last 5-7 seasons bashing him.

    As of now Brady is all they got.

        I still don't think it's really hurt in the grand scheme of things. He's going to be in the hall of fame, and he is going to go down in history as one of the greats. I know a lot of his fans are just pissed that they can't claim that he is better then Montana now.

        Elway wasn't perfect either, but people still remember him as a great QB.

        Eli and the G-Men just have his number. We had Montana's to, just ask Joe Cool when he had the hardest hit in his life.

          I think that's precisely it. Its no longer " Montana or Brady?" Its "Is Brady even better than Elway?"

            i thought Brady played pretty well, i know in the end he didn't do enough, but he set a Super Bowl record 16 in a row ... not too shabby and he was pressured on over 1/3 of his drop backs

              agreeed. Although getting to the super bowl 5 times is no joke. I feel like his legacy has fallen since 07 though and we are just starting to see it melt away. 08 he didn't play and then 09-10 he never won a playoff game. Then he gets all the way to the rematch with the giants and fails again (not to mention not the most spectacular postseason play if you avg the broncos and ravens). If he doesn't do well anymore, it will be a big testament to Brady's legacy. He has been a huge story for his whole career so people love him in the media. Just look at all these analysts who were like brady won 3 SBs and what not (last time was 05...that is alot of time). Now people in Boston are ripping him and getting pissed so he is starting to slip. I am just glad recognition is finally going Eli's way.

                AND, if Gisele doesn't hold her tongue, Brady will need his own locker room next season.

                  I thought Brady played very well on Sunday. No deep threat and his best weapon was playing on one leg.




                  He has nothing to hang his head about. Our team was just a little bit better than theirs.




                  It isn't about Brady vs. Eli. Its about the Pats vs. the Giants. And the Giants were better on Sunday.




                  I can't honestly say that Eli was better than Brady on Sunday.

                  Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                    Here is the thing with BRady:

                    Unlike alot of QBs, his legacy was made very early in his career. Qbs generally built the resume as they go.

                    Steve Young was nothing until well into his prime. Elway was an "under acheiver" until he won 2 late Superbowls.

                    Brady has put up big regular season numbers but, has not been lights out in the playoffs for a long time.

                    When they were 16-0, he did not play well in the AFC championship game against the Chargers.

                    He did not play well against the Ravens this year in the AFC championship.

                    BRady off the field is not the most likeable guy around.

                    The media spent so long bashing Eli that it is hard to embrace him. Part of the reason is:

                    1) he does not ride motorcycles and break the law
                    2) He does not impregnate one Supermodel and marry another at same time

                    Basically, he does not sell "tabloids"

                      After sport is played, it is to be debated. That is all.

                        Because Brady has done a terrible job protecting his own legacy the past few seasons!!

                          It isn't about Brady vs. Eli. Its about the Pats vs. the Giants. And the Giants were better on Sunday.

                          i can. Eli played better.




                          there's a big con job going on right now.




                          before this game, if someone was predicting that the Pats would win, one of, if not THE primary reason they gave was Tom Brady. Not the New England offense, not the double TEs. Tom Brady. They used him as an intangible to explain that when he's the QB, anything's possible.




                          And that's fair given his resume. he was the comeback kid WAY before Eli was the comeback kid.




                          But NOW the narrative has changed. Now, magically, Tom Brady isn't the reason they lost. It's that his offensive targets aren't as good. Their defense isn't as good.




                          So with all the new discussion going on about the rest of the New England roster, its safe to say that Tom Brady USED TO BE ENOUGH to predict wins in games like they just had against the Giants.




                          NOW, after this loss, people are unknowingly acknowledging that the rest of the roster is becoming more important to the Patriots success relative to what they've always thought was more than enough supporting talent.




                          It simply means that if brady was good enough back in the day to pull this off, he simply isn't anymore.

                            You're kidding right?

                            Eli was clearly the better quarterback on Sunday and you can based that off stats and by visibly watching the game.

                            I mean, Eli completed 75% of his passes for 296 yards and a touchdown. Brady was 65% for 276 yds, 2 TD's 1 INT and Safety that was on him.

                            Brady had more mental errors and mistakes. I'll give you that it was Giants vs Patriots, but Eli was clearly the better quarterback on Sunday.

                            As for Brady's legacy, I think the questions should have started when the Patriots went 11-5 with a back up QB the season he got injured.

                              The Pats scored 500+ points and Brady threw for 5,000+ yards.

                              Suddenly, he had no supporting cast!

                              The media needs to reconcile this one.

                              All I heard during the week was:

                              1) Brady will get his redemption because he is so mad from the last game
                              2) Brady will come back after a horrible AFC Championship game

                              Brady looked human on Sunday. Not bad but human.
