As an aside, remember Brady's first playoff game was the Oakland "tuck rule" game. ...just the first of many things that would be ruled in his favor. I wish we had a guardian angel looking out for us

...but I digress, sorry

EDIT: Went back to check. Vs. the Colts, the Pats scored 3 times on the ground and Ty Law had a pick-six in that first Colts game. In rather delightful news (to me) Major Forehead (Manning) was picked off 3 times (including the pick-six).

In his second game, the stats indicate Brady was tentative; 12 of 24 for 87 yds, no TDs or picks. Orrrrr maybe Belichick "had the handcuffs on" his young QB. Or maybe Brady was getting used to the speed of the game and was being cautious. Anyway, the 'Phins' running game controlled the clock and their defense shut down Antowain Smith (10 carries/47 yds/1 TD).
Good stuff in there, thanks for sharing.

I am proud to say that I knew his first playoff game was the infamous snowy game where the ref rolled out the Tuck Rule. I remember thinking, at the time, "Wow, that is destiny changing type stuff going on right there." At that point, you knew stars were aligning. The call itself was legitimate, it's just the idea that the blitzing defender was only a split second LATE in getting to Brady. Otherwise, it's game over and no Super Bowl for Brady.

I think of the Franco reception, the Immaculate Reception, when I recall the Patriots-Raiders game where the Tuck Rule came into play. Crazy plays that alter NFL history.

Default Re: Wade IS More Valuable Than Kubiak

Wade and Gary seemingly need one another, IMO.

Good offense guy (Kubiak) and a good defense guy (Phillips) can't get it done when it's just them alone with a team. They're a dynamic duo, those two are.

Why not hire a better coach if he were to become available by another team and keep Wade rather than just giving Gary an extension?

McNair believes in maintaining harmony. He wants a known commodity.

A lot of factors, fair or not, will ensure that he stays our HC. The chiefest reason is that we've had crazy injuries to our best QB and our best WR. This was a lockout year, and the team still won the division. A fifth-round rookie QB won the Bengals game and ensured a playoff appearance for us. Gary kept his hands off the defense and Wade turned that ship around from worst to first.

All these things point toward McNair seeking as low of a risk on the future as he can, which means retaining Kubiak as HC. This thing has a very Tom Landry Early Years feel to it, btw. Great football mind, very stoic and had a poker face on the sideline, was obsessed about the details to the point that he felt the players would succeed if they JUST carried out his plans and strategies and the way he designed plays and called plays. Staubach is on record as saying that he knows Landry didn't value players much because Landry vehemently maintained that it was "the system" and not the players that mattered most. Sounds a lot like Plug-n-Play tactics of Shanahan and Kubiak to me, right?

Not saying he becomes LIKE Landry completely, but I think McNair feels he is on the verge of creating a dynasty if he just keeps things the way they are.

Who do you recommend?
No team would fire/release their head coach if he had a better season than we had this year?

...well, there's the Marty Schottenheimer case in San Diego...
but that's an anomaly ...and it really didn't work

I see the Giants and Eagles possibly releasing their coaches. MAYBE.

Well gee thanks Gary, and Happy New Year to you also!

Just another name caller, which shows your age, at least mentally. I won't lose any sleep over what you or anyone else thinks about me.

Best wishes to you all... Happy New Year!
