Default Not so safety call: Blame Brady for this one

Not so safety call: Blame Brady for this one

The legend is dead, the prince has turned back into a frog, and...well, use whatever other cliché you want.

A performance as bad as Tom Brady's tonight in Super Bowl XLVI deserves a lead just as lame.

Sorry, Tommy Boy, this one's on you. Your hideous performance led to the Giants' 21-17 Super Bowl title win. How embarrassing for your coach, your teammates, and your fans.

But especially for you, boy wonder. It was one thing when you led the game off with a safety, which surely put plenty of faith into the heart of Patriot Nation, but just when you have the game, just when you might be able to run off the clock, you huck the thing downfield. Yes, if Wes Welker catches that thing, you're in the clear, and fans will place the blame either way, but what happened to being safe in that situation? What happened to the Patriot Way and clock management?

What happened to you?

What an embarrassment for the Patriots organization and Bob Kraft.
So now the Giants have taken Lombardi from you twice, and you haven't looked this bad in a playoff game since...well, two weeks ago against the Ravens. Maybe that moment will actually hit you as your whittling down water slides in South America looking like Prince Valiant this spring. The Patriots haven't won a title in seven years, but even worse, they're now turning into the Buffalo Bills, with the Giants being their Cowboy daddy. That's not easy to swallow in a region where New York is regarded as highly as the menu at Beacon Hill Pub.

But, there you are, Tom. That's what you have become. Your legacy has been stamped, but you're turning your Joe Montana status into one of Jim Kelly. But, hey what you worry? There's that new mansion in the "Names" pages to deal with.

Yes, there were plenty of dropped passes to go around. Granted. But when you begin the game with such a boneheaded play, then proceed to make random mistakes, sorry, Tom, game is on you.

There was no fourth and 13 to blame Belichick for.

Welker was the closest thing to Asante, and the eeriness compared to the Tyree play will be discussed for decades to come.

Thanks for that too. Can't wait. Oh, look, another text coming in from 212...

Tom, it's not all your fault, but you're the poster boy, you had opportunities, and you failed to make them. Add to that your blunders, and it all becomes about you. You blew this Super Bowl. You denied your coach No. 4. You let down your teammates.


Eli and Peyton now have as many rings as you combined over the past five years. You haven't sniffed one in seven. How's that hit you?

Maybe it doesn't hit you as hard anymore, and maybe that's the problem.

The safety killed the Patriots. Killed them.

And there's nobody to blame but Tom Brady.

However hard it might be to swallow, the glory days are gone. Even Montana handed off to Mallett at some point, right?

(Once again if the Patriots can't cheat they don't win. Their stolen Super bowls are forever tainted with the stench of their cheating foulness. There never was Patriot dynasty. It was all a cheating lie.

Poor Shady Brady, I guess he's not such a good QB when he doesn't know what play the defense is running. Now his own town has turned on him since this article is from the Boston Globe. The loser Brady should retire now because he will never win another Super Bowl. - mesa)

Wow....thats harsh.

But i've said over....and over....and over again.....Brady's a good one. A very good one. But i've never thought of him as "the best" as he gets labeled as constantly.
For the majority of his career he's sat behind an almost unpenetrateable offensive line and been part of smart offensive play calling that utilizes quick slants and 2 TE's. And he's had a great coaching staff.
Put any of the other guys in that situation and they play almost as good or just as good.

Can you imagine Brady playing behind OUR "made of paper" offensive line and dumb play calling? He'd be eaten for lunch and probably would be paralyzed by now.
I've never bought into the Brady thing.

Here are a few choice comments from the losers.

Looking forward to the pictures of Tom and his dchbag wife sipping on chardene next week in Paris. That should draw a lot of sympathy for him and his wife right?

That woman cursed the New England Patriots... that is my explanation for this team having trouble in the Superbowl two times against the same guy!!!

Brady's brain was not in this game whatsoever. I suppose if I was building a completely unnecessary 22,00 sq foot, $22M mansion estate on an $11M parcel of land in the LA Hills, I too, would not be the least bit focused on the game at hand.

Love the Pats "fans" saying "Brady can't get it done, or carry us anymore..."

Brady is the Pats... W/o him they'd win 5 games tops! They'd be the Colts... Bad D, No wr's, no running game. He's all they have...

Pats fans aren't that bright
... If you want to dump him for not being "clutch," I'll let you have Mark Sanchez.

Either Belichick gets a real upper echelon coaching staff (and eases off the paranoid, micro-managing) or we run into this next year. Did the Pats overachieve? Yes and no. Yes, given the personnel and no, with all their picks (and really not that many season ending - IR injuries) they should have more prime-time/clutch players. Belchick's "genius" (which he is not) makes him immune from criticism from the press. Not the same mind you - but a little reminiscent of the red Sox/Theo & Terry Francona situation.

Brady's luck has come to an end. Since he was at Michigan he was at the right place at the right time, same with New England, Drew went down and he was fortunate enough to be able to step in take the PATS to a new level, however after all of this time in the league, Brady at best is a middle of the road QB at this point in his career, it has been a good ride for the Brady family and his place is secure in the Hall, but he has been the benefit of good luck and tonight the LUCK ran out!


Soxfan2434 wrote:
The Pats lost the game before they even started. Their offense is a neutered version of the one that set records in 2008. It's all well and good to basically run a passing offense through your tight ends, but when one of them goes down and doesn't have that mobility you HAVE to have WRs who can make plays.

They threw ONCE to Ocho and barely looked at him all year. Welker belongs in the slot and ideally catches 10-yard passes and collects YAC yards. They don't have a deep threat and in the end that killed them. Randy Moss was an a$$, but this offense hasn't been the same without him.

Full credit to NYG for the win.

Yaso#77 - Brady played well? Which game did you watch? Intentional grounding resulting in 2 points on the first play? He played well? your nose is far up his rear you cannot smell the stink he left behind.

ipot wrote:
The Welker drop was just as much a function of:

a) the throw was behind him.
b) more importantly, all the other O failures that led up to making it about that 1 play.

Brady was rattled and inconsistent all game. AGAIN

Does this mean he isn't the golden boy of Foxborough anymore? According to some Pats fans he was the second comming.

pretty harsh lol.. if Brady and Welker connect on that pass, Brady is probably the MVP. i think Pats fans are just acting like their typical spoiled, whiny selves.
