These are more exhausting than they are funny.

It was a one-note joke the first time they did it.

Based on the first one this year, I was hoping they were going to attempt to use less pointless "blue" humor, but they are already back to being as bad as they were at the end of last year.

It's a shame the Jets lost yesterday because this would be absolutely hilarious to look back on if they did.

Pats better get some receiver help soonbecause they need it. Dobson was horrible yesterday and they're gonna wear out Edelman or get him hurt just because Brady's using him so much. Geno could have easily won yesterday's game.

I was laughing because Brady kept getting upset with the rookies. They're rookies, of course mistakes will be made. He needs to calm down some.

Brady doesn't have the time to be going through rebuilding, his career is coming to a close. If the Pats want to field a team of rookies for him, they should have the decency to trade Brady to a contender for his last few years or cut him loose to seek his own destiny like the Colts did with Manning.

The Pats are gonna name Brady as the starter long after he's dead and buried.  They'll prop his rotting carcass up on a stick if they have to.  He will NEVER get released by the Patriots.

They may be rookies, but they were hired to catch the football. Is it that much harder to catch a pro football than a college ball? Or did the Pats just choose poorly?

Eh, the Manning thing was a once in a lifetime sort of decision for a franchise. If Luck wouldn't have been at the top of that draft, my guess is that Manning would still be a Colt.

How often has a HOF caliber QB actually changed teams when he could still play? I'm not talking like Unitas going to the Rams at the end of his career. The only one that is even close is when the 49ers traded Montana to the Chiefs. Of course they had a HOFer that had already replaced him.

it depends, as long as Brady is winning and is healthy they'll keep him around, BUT lets not forget the Patriots organization let go of most of their receiving corps in the offseason - aside from Hernandez it was all self-inflicted, which tells me they are building for the long-term and that brings an aging QB into question - there's no doubt Brady still has at least 5 years left in him, but the question is when an injury happens will NE keep him as starter?

i mean Manning/Montana/Favre all wanted to stay with their respective teams, but in all 3 of those cases the regimes were wanting big changes and only those QB's winning kept them around - if they did something stupid like Favre or got injured like Manning/Montana then they were out

ladodger34: How often has a HOF caliber QB actually changed teams when he could still play?


Favre, Kurt Warner. You have to remember that the era of free agency, which let the player have a say in which teams they play for in their career, is relatively young, so you can only expect it to become more and more frequent as the current QBs age

There was that Brett guy a few years back.  Of course his team also had a HOFer waiting to replace him.

Yeah I don't buy someone in pro football even as a rookie dropping passes. That's all you are supposed to do! People have less patience for 15 year old manning the fryers than dudes make a million dollars playing a kids game.  Brady had every reason to be upset.

Loved the madden anounce team joke at the end.

Pats looked pretty terrible last night, as they did last week.  They should have two bad losses, if only Buffalo and the Jets weren't fielding rookie quarterbacks, etc.  I'd be anxious as a Pats fan about now.

Warner was a weird case because it wasn't at all clear he could still play when he left St. Louis.  He was brutally awful in his last two years there and had clearly been overtaken by Marc Bulger.  He was pushed out the door.  He did OK in his one year in New York but it was clearly intended to be a temporary stay, as the team had drafted Eli.

Brees is another choice, but he was hurt and people didn't quite realize how good he was yet, either.

With Edelman returning punts and all those slant routes and flanker screens, if he makes it to week 8 without getting hurt I'd be surprised. He took one good wallop to the face last night on that replay reversed fumble.

Just how soon are Gronkowski and Amendola going to be back anyway?

Amendola out 2-6 weeks. Gronk back either next week or week after.

It wasn't Warner as much as Martz's offense is absolutely elite at getting QBs damaged.

In any event, that's not Belichick's MO at all.  When he's done with you, he'll get rid of you.  Brady will be no different.  Belichick has no room for sentimentality.

Brees' injury was pretty darned serious and they already had Rivers.

I think the key takeaways from this exercise are that elite QBs really don't move around all that often. When they do, it's usually because they have been injured and the team has a replacement (or one is on the way in the case of Manning). Favre was a little different obviously, but he "retired" and was replaced. You can bet your butt that if GB didn't have Rogers they would have begged to not retire or begged him to come back after he did.

At this moment, Brady doesn't fit into either category.

I wish the Colts would have held on to Manning too, but I wouldn't call Irsay an asshole for letting him go.  It was a tough decision, but I understand the reasoning behind it.  Only time will tell if it was the right call.  Obviously Manning can still play the game at a high level, but if Luck continues to develop into a franchise QB and gives the Colts 10+ years of continued success it will end up looking like a smart call.

I'm sure plenty of Niners fans were cursing DeBartolo's name when he let Montana go for Young, but we know how that story ends.

Don't be like one of those crazy Baltimore people that still refuse to get over something that happened nearly 30 goddamn years ago.

I'm OK with it being a "tough decision".  If it just ended there, I'd have swallowed the pill and thought:  I disagree.  But it's Irsay's Attention Whoring that makes me want to punch him in the face every time he appears.  He's a fourteen year old girl on Twitter -- and while it was amusing for maybe one or two Tweets, the idiot that dumped the greatest football player in the history of the game really should just learn to shut the hell up on occasion.  I'll always root for the Colts, but there's a good part of me that wishes for Karma to kick Irsay's ass on a daily basis.
