(ESPN)   TB Coach Bruce Arians shows why everyone loves him so much: "This is a team sport. ... I don't think Bill played a snap. And we had 22 guys out there playing their asses off. One of 'em just happened to be named Brady"   (espn.com) divider line

"I would say, so much is made of our relationship. ... Nothing is really accurate that I ever see. It definitely doesn't come from my personal feelings or beliefs."

"For instance, I'm a bit more racist than Bill."

I can see why people were cheering last week when he almost got crippled by that hit on the sideline.

The NFL is made up, in large part, about the stories of the game. Bill/Brady is a HUGE story and a big part of the game for all of New England. To just take a giant sh*t all over that... only a guy who wears a fanny pack over his shoulder could manage to do that.

I like Bruce Arians. He does have a point, as the media is overhyping this as they typically do. He's probably tired of being asked about it

Now that the game is over, we can move on with the so-far normal season.

And after all the hype the game was much closer than it should have been.

And of course, anyone who was paying attention got the refresher course on how to scheme against a Brady-led offense.  It helps to have key interior personnel and maybe a little rain, but you move the interior around during his cadence and rush between 2 and 6 on any play while harrassing receivers and dropping into his dump-off zones.

That should just about level the playing field and drop Tampa by a few wins.  IF AND ONLY IF anyone paid attention.  And coaching in the NFL doesn't always mean that.  Most of them are happy to just do what they do and then go golfing in January.

Tom was over-excited and screwed up a few key passes. If he hits a few of those he missed on, that score is probably different by 14 points. I think if someone else tries that same scheme on Brady again, he'll torch them for those missed points.

You can absolutely beat Tom Brady, but the guy totally learns from his mistakes and tends not to make them again. That's the secret to Tom Brady.

Yep.  Even a robot like Brady had to have been affected by the emotions of the event.

Also, even with a bad game he still threw for 269 yards with 0 picks.

He can learn all he wants when he doesnt have anyone to throw to.  Evans and Godwin are pretty soft.  New England never has receivers as fast or athletic as them, but NE always had quick guys who can create separation or catch a ball in traffic with heavy contact.

And none of this defensive scheme is new - those 2015-ish Broncos did it, Rex Ryan's Ravens and then Jets teams did it.  The Coughlin Giants were similar but a little more straight-forward about it.  Vrabel's Titans team did it a little bit, too.

Brady is definitely more patient against it than he was years ago, but it's always been the best way to keep his points down.

Between that - which again, might not even be a problem because NFL coaching is generally atrocious, and Tampa's secondary, they'll need a little more luck to repeat this year.

He's just salty because nobody was talking about him vs Belichick.

And nobody ever would.

Even Omar won a Super Bowl once.

Why would you choose the guy who's probably going to the HoF as the "Can you believe this guy won a Super Bowl?" example? There are so many better examples of much worse coaches. Billick, Peterson, Kubiak, etc. Yeah, he's having a bad season, but it's going to be his first losing season since he entered the league when Dubya was still the President

Giants fan here. Got nothing but respect for Brady on the field, and how successful he was with former Giants defensive coordinator Bill Belichick.

I feel the deflated ball stuff was B.S., and I guess the Patriots coaching staff paid the price for videotaping the Rams' practice back in 2001.

But Brady elevates players around him. Yeah, he's getting his numbers now, but he came up as a game manager (180 yards, another 35 on the ground, maybe a TD and no INTs), and I believe he's always understood the game as a team sport, and that he cannot win it all by himself.

His politics suck, but that's off the field. On the field, I would love to have had him in Giants blue.

Except on two occasions, of course. ;)

I thought I saw Bill out on the field during a couple special teams plays. He made a couple key blocks.

Belichick record in games where Brady started as Quarterback

177 wins  68 losses  .722 winning pct.

Belichick record in games where Brady is not the Quarterback

63 wins    75 losses   .456 winning pct.


Any apprentice statistician will tell you that there is an assignable cause to having Brady as Quarterback.

Except they never videotaped Rams practice. You're not going to find any reliable source that says they did.

Ahhh, Tom Brady, the guy who you can Google and find multiple pictures of him crying, says that the NFL has gotten "soft". The biggest goddamn crybaby in the NFL, and he has the balls to say that the game is "soft". No, it's crybabies who are soft, Tommy.

Men aren't allowed to cry?
You got any more wisdom?
How about women, should they be barefoot and pregnant?
Children? Seen and not heard?
I'm not even gonna ask what you think of minorities.
Any other nuggets of wisdom from someone stuck in the last century?

Yeah, men are allowed to cry. But not when they are throwing a hissy fit because the referees are just so MEAN!

Fark Tom Brady and his little entitled ass.

And fark off with your shiatty ace race--bating, motherfarker. Stop trying to create shiat because your mommy didn't breast feed you, or whatever your stupid little hangup is. Stop inventing shiat, trolling, it just makes you look like like an ass.

That leaves out taking a terrible Browns team (3-13) and steadily improving them during his first ever head coaching job. Brought them to the playoffs and gave them Super Bowl aspirations until they moved to Baltimore. He set them up pretty nice because they won a Super Bowl a few years later.

So a few 6 and 7 win seasons makes his record look worse. Most head coaches screw up their first job.

Anyway, head coach needs good quarterback to win. Ya think?
 
2021-10-04 4:32:59 PM  
He's absolutely right but it would have been a loooot better for him to say this after the playoffs last year.

All correct.

The Brady scheme has been a thing for a decade and yet "top men" always seem to want to go with their own game plans like (for example last night) "cover zero with all the coverage over the top" which is a horrendous defense against Brady. Right on his wheelhouse, a quick throw right in the middle of the field to someone who is wide open.
 
2021-10-04 4:37:16 PM  
Like I mentioned last night, THAT is a decent Russell Wilson defense. Now, that play with the secondary underneath? Poor defense against, say, a Russell Wilson because he will go over the top.
