He doesn't care... he just comes on the mb to bash Eli. It's amazing how we should dismiss the 2 sbs Eli has helped bring here, but Brady is glorified for his 3.What does 2011 have to do with now? What about the fact that it proved the naysayers, calling 2007 a fluke, wrong thus validating Eli's ability to raise his game. Now considering he threw so many interceptions before that season 25(I think) everyone was tearing him apart so he goes out the next year and rips it up throwing for almost 5000 yards and winning a SB despite a statistically bad defense and rushing attack and racking up a few 4th quarter wins along the way(2 against NE come to mind). So I don't think its a stretch to think he could rebound like he did after his last bad season.
Eli is a riverboat gambler, when its going good he makes plays that seem impossible and when its bad it looks like he doesn't realize hes on a football field. But he has proven in the past it doesn't matter what people think of his game he can turn it on and win. Sure lots of things would have to go our way but at least if they did we have a quarterback who we know can cash in when the heats on. Not every team can have a Brady/Peyton/Rogers/Brees so why don't we stay with our 2nd tier guy who has championships under his belt. s/ Should NE ditch Brady just because he lost the last 2 superbowls he was in to us, clearly he cant win the big one anymore right?/s
On topic: It doesn't help that the team always seems to be in flux with coaches coming and leaving and Jerry's bad personnel decisions. Plus when they do make a good move like drafting Bryant it comes with the whole drama scene. Which even if you don't buy into his team at least has to answer stupid questions about it all the time. But like you said other quarter backs have done it and without the heartbreaking season-ending losses, so far it seems he just can't get over the hump. Also maybe his athleticism or mindset because of it works against him in these scenarios, trying to keep the play alive when it should just be thrown away to play another down. Eli had the problem of not throwing away the ball and forcing throws and when he worked on it he won Superbowls in those seasons.
