  • Never thought I'd say this: Ray Lewis is classier than Brady

    In the wake of Cundiff choking on the kick, and Evans dropping a perfectly thrown ball, Lewis was incredibly supportive of them. He's one of the greatest, most competitive players I've ever witnessed, it well could be the last chance he had for the SB, yet he never even slightly hinted at any blame on them.
    contrast to Brady who lets Welker twist in the wind as the supposed goat with a halfhearted 'its a team game' crap. HE threw a terrible ball, HE gacked on the safety, HE panicked and threw up the jump ball that Blackburn intercepted. But he doesn't take an iota of blame on himself directly. (i'm not getting into the Giselle stuff - that's not his fault).

    i think you only caught a soundbite of the brady interview.




    he said that welker is an awesome athlete, that given the opportunity to run that play again he'd throw it to welker again, and he hopes that he's throwing passes like that to welker for a very very long time.




    what you caught was Brady's response to the question "did your recievers let you down today tom?"




    And you can thank the media for how they've communicated those answers.




    i have alot of respect for tom brady.

      Ray Lewis was 100% classy with his post game speech.

      With Brady, he put the blame on Welker.

        The thing with Brady is that he never admitted that it was bad pass. He just said that he would still throw it to him. Welker took some blame and Brady should at least admit that his throw was off.

          I really like Ray Lewis. Brady played a decent game. He had to adjust that throw to Welker because of the safety. I don't begrudge him for throwing the ball to the Gronk, 9 out of 10 he gets that ball. If you looked at the replay, he got no push off of his left ankle, that prevented him from getting enough height for the jump ball. If you are on the field, you make the play. I think that Brady throws that ball just like he did during the whole season. with all of that said, I think that he could have supported Welker better. The game was not lost because of Welker, it amazes me that people even entertain the idea.

              he said more than 'he would still throw it to him'.




              The point is, he absolutely didn't throw welker under the bus. he did the exact opposite.

                exactly. he never took the blame off welker, and it boggles me that people blame him for that. it was not a great throw by any means. it wasn't terrible either, but given the time he had, and that he's one of the top 10 QBs of all time, it was pretty poor. I just don't get why boston media/fans are all blaming welker and letting Tom off the hook. And why he is basically doing the same thing. As if there were ever any doubt that Welker is his best receiver, and one of the best in the game.

                Ray Lewis had every right to be bitter and devastated, but he didn't let even an iota of that show through. I was surprised and impressed.

                  ha, that was an inspiring speech by Ray, but did he come up with it before the lost or in case they lost ??, i mean proactive, yes, but a little bit defeatist as well

                    Actually, thinking about this...How much class did you think ray lewis had before?

                    I have always found lewis to be similar to jacobs in how he speaks his mind and doesn't care what the media thinks of him

                      Instead he came off like he was supportingWelker and getting his back after a mistake.

                      I wouldn't go so far as to say he didn't show class but I'd say he showed that he might be a better leader when things or going well than he is during trials.

                        it wasn't a good throw, but it certainly wasn't terrible. tom has to shoulder some of the blame, but he shouldn't have to come out and say its a terrible pass. it wouldn't have been a remarkable catch either. it hit welker in both hands, above his head, arms bent, without coverage breathing down his neck.




                        If that's Ramses Barden, or Jake Ballard, i get why they don't make that play.




                        But Welker has to come down with that throw. he's considered their possession receiver. those not great throws is why he's there.

                          Welker said that he should have caught that bad pass but he also said the throw was bad. Brady never once admitted he threw a bad pass to Welker. Brady acts like it was bullet pass to Welker and it hit off his numbers. Why can't Brady admit it was a bad pass? It was more of a bad pass than a bad catch attempt.

                          Brady should have said "Welker usually makes that catch but I should have threw it better to him and hit him in stride. We just didn't connect."

                          Not the "That is my wide receiver. I will keep on throwing to him."

                            but that's what leaders do - they take the blame when things go wrong, and defer credit when things go right (b/c the press will always give them credit anyway). Brady did the wrong thing as a leader.
                            also, Welker catches 5yd slants that hit him in the numbers, and then runs. and he's incredible at that. better than anyone else in the league. but he's not a guy who is used to contorting his body for downfield catches. it was too difficult a catch for him.
