Default Is Brady getting LEGACY penalties?

Do you think Brady is getting favored in several penalty calls that would not be called for other QBs?

Is it a Brady or New England phenomenom?

It's based on what he was capable of when he had the benefit of knowing, thanks to his coach, the opposing defensive plays.

Now that he's playing on a level field (although still in the most QB-friendly system in the league), here's where he's ranking:

Yards: 4th
QBR: 17th (Behind Jason freaking Campbell!)
Comp %: 15th (behind Shaun Hill)

He's number 1 in completions, BUT he's also number 1 in attempts, BUT 15th in %. What does THAT tell you?

One more interesting stat: He's TWENTY EIGHTH in average yards at 6.5 per catch. All they do is dink and dunk, so why is his completion percentage so low?

This is being discussed at length in the Ravens vs. Patriots thread, but the answer is yes, of course he is.

Not at much as Trent Edwards, apparently. 4 RTP penalties have been called in favor of the Bills.

3 have been called in favor of New England, and 3 against New England.

Yep, you're right. He threw for as many as 28 touchdowns in a season thanks to "knowing the defensive plays".

Then in 2007, right after he no longer has this "advantage", he only throws for 50 touchdowns.

He still had the advantage back then. I believe Belichick was still employing nefarious methods of stealing the opposing teams plays and such. The evidence shows as much. In fact, his record "pre-cheating" (which includes his first year in NE) is telling: 41-55. That is NOT a coincidence.

Fact is, I think Cassel and Brady are pretty much about equal in talent, and that is NOT a ringing endorsement of Cassels' abilities.

I would have to say after this weekend...he won't be getting any calls that other QBs do not get.

Either ALL the Refs will call woosy late hit on the QB in every single game or the integrity of the game will be in jeopardy

Is that a fact?

I can agree that refs make bad calls, favor Brady more that other quarterbacks, institute rules to benefit quarterbacks like Brady, and are payed by Roger Goodell exorbitant sums of money to fix games so the Patriots can win and thus minimalize the effects of Spygate, but when you say something like that...

Default Re: Is Brady getting LEGACY penalties?

is there really a need to have 2 threads discussing Marsha's special treatment?

So what you're saying is, even though the "advantage" was taken away from him, he still had the advantage anyways?
