Stat-padder? Ummm... yes, he's padded his stats with many, many TD passes, victories and even a Super Bowl win. I don't know what to tell you about that. I wish our QB could pad his stats like this. Unfortunately, our recently departed OC felt that games needed to be won with scores in the high teens and low twenties.
Somehow it's still a secret that teams like the Browns haven't figured out: ALL of the teams that win consistently put their money in an elite QB, and in elite pass rushers, then spread what's left over around the rest of the team. Ben and Harrison own our two biggest contracts, and that's not by mistake. The Gronkowski deal kind of throws the Patriots off-track, so maybe they'll start to truly stink it up this year.
