The Patriots

Filed under: Sports — aproposofnothing @ 1:18 am

The New England Patriots are having a historic year, but to tell you the truth, I am getting sick and tired of hearing about how great Tom Brady is. As a former center and defensive tackle, I must say that if he had any more time to throw the ball, he would have a lawn chair in the backfield. New England’s offensive line (and defensive line also) is the best in the NFL by far. If the NFL does not give the MVP trophy to their offensive line, it will be a travesty. You could put Tim Couch in that backfield and he would win games. I’m not saying Brady is a bad quarterback, but look back at the games where he has been pressured and compare that to the final score and you will know what I am talking about. Lineman in the NFL do NOT get the recognition they deserve.

And you know that Darth Belichick controls everything.



  1. While I certainly agree that the O-Line deserves a lot more credit than it receives, there is no denying that Tom Brady is exceptional at reading the defense, looking off the safeties/DB’s, and NOT making poor decisions (4 INT’s all year??!)

  2. I’m not saying he’s a bad QB, but it sure is easier for him to read a defense when he is not being pressured.

  3. Well… you didn’t say he was a bad QB, per se.
    But stating that Tim Couch could win games (do you mean 10-0?) behind that line, isn’t exactly giving TB credit.

  4. True, but an average QB with that line would be at least 8-2.
