Pressure is key. But at this point, as well as their OL is playing, I don't
see us getting it done. Belichick is a warlock. Brady is a wizard.

I remember the year the Giants won the Super Bowl. All year long it was "Brady this, and Brady that, etc, etc, etc...". As i watched Pats game, i noticed opposing teams either not blitzing or sending 'weak' blitzes. I thought at the time that Brady was over-rated and was fortunate to have a solid-as-steel OL. I thought to myself "as soon as someone brings the pressure like they should, he's going to be exposed for what he is....a really avg to just-above-average QB'.
Sure enough, Super Bowl time came. The Giants were sending them in all game long....in his face. He looked nervous, confused (but this is what other QB's have to deal with.....hows it feel?).
And the Giants beat them and won the game on that pass play at the end. But they also physically kicked them around the entire game.
I knew it. This is the way.
Giants had 4 down linemen who can get to the QB. They still do. This Chicago game could be interesting. He's not an average QB. All QB's look average when they're getting hurried and sacked. You got to give Brady props for his accuracy, patience, intelligence and leadership.

I will give him credit for his leadership right now. As far as the other stuff, it goes out the window at pressure. There are several other qb's ours included that don't get so rattled under pressure. Wish we could see Brady behind our Oline and see how good he is when his nose is broken or is punched or watch him try to beat Suggs like Ben. He would crumble (like manning is who I believe is a better QB).

Pressure. Run the ball.

And change our defensive hand signals at half time.
