Default Re: McNabb says black QBs under more pressure

How about naming some of this stellar talent that Brady has had at his disposal?

Westbrook remains one of the elite two way threats in the backfield.

Let me throw some names at you regarding Brady's 'surrounding talent' - Jabar Gaffney, Reche Caldwell, Antowain Smith, David Givens, David Patten, Troy Brown, Deion Branch, Donald Hayes.....

Not many HOFers there, right?

Some decent players -sure, but those that have left have totally failed to repeat their output elsewhere.

I think McNabb is an okay guy from what I can tell, but the enduring image I have of him from the SB was of him puking into his helmet and walking slowly to the line while the clock ticked to zero on Phily's chance of tying the game.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
