Default Ryan Clark: Amendola is fragile, Brady ducks when he’s blitzed

Ryan Clark: Amendola is fragile, Brady ducks when he’s blitzed


Clark said on ESPN that the Patriots have taken a step backward by replacing Wes Welker with the “fragile” Danny Amendola, and that quarterback Tom Brady struggles when he starts to feel pressure and can’t find an open receiver.

“I think what’s really underestimated is Wes Welker’s importance to not only the New England Patriots, but Tom Brady,” Clark said. “Losing him is huge. . . . I know they think Danny Amendola can come in and have the same type of numbers he had with the Rams, but we also have to remember, he’s fragile.”

Clark believes that if Brady isn’t seeing his favorite receiver getting open quickly, then Brady is going to struggle.

“When Tom Brady gets pressure and when you’re man-to-man and bumping those guys and making it hard for him to throw, he sees ghosts,” Clark said. “Even when guys aren’t around him, even when he’s not about to be sacked, when his clock goes off in his head that the ball should be out, we’ll see him duck, we’ll see him flinch. When you get Tom Brady doing that, the whole New England Patriots mystique goes away.”

Clark referenced a 2011 game when the Steelers beat the Patriots and held Brady to 198 passing yards.

“Two years ago we played them and dominated them because we went man-to-man and had a big corner in Cortez Allen on [Rob] Gronkowski, and made it hard for Tom Brady to get the ball off, in timing, and made him to have to make plays. It was hard for him.”

Those comments may motivate Brady to make life hard for Clark when the teams meet on November 3.

knew we couldnt go threw a whole offense season without any comments.

even though pretty much what he said is true,

when teams have got heat on brady up the middle hes struggled, but teams dont get heat on brady up the middle too often either..

and Danny boy is fraglie, but then again so is 90% of the steelers

It's amazing the confidence that can get built when a team like the Steelers manage a beat a certain opponent at Heinz Field once every decade.

Perhaps Colonel Klink should review recent history and look less at the 2010 Jets playoff game and place a lil more emphasis on the 4 utter beatdowns the Patriots have put on the Jets since that game.

For a guy who'se only trait is cheap shots from the blindside after the whistle, it might be too much to ask.

The reality is Lebeau lucked into a new strategy that Belichick was too arrogant to believe the Steelers would ever get beyong "do what we do".

Even a blind squirrel can sometimes find a nut. Just ask Rex.

Ofcourse, Clark should be proud. Actually beating the Patriots at Heinz Field is the greatest moment and achievement in Steelers history. Just like the Jets playoff win.

Enjoy the accomplishment.

If the Pats are so much better than the Steelers, and the Steelers cant even hole the Pats jock, then why come here? I am mean surely you'd want to talk to people who are real competition to the pats, am i right? not the lowly steelers.


I mean the Steelers have only won 2 super bowls since the Pats last won one, but guess that doesnt matter

Let's not turn this into a pissing contest in which we whip our dicks out over having more rings than the Patriots. I think we're better than that. Let's not stoop to their level because, man, being on a Patriots fans' level just makes me feel ... dirty.
