Default Why do you NOT like Tom Brady & Running Up the Score?

I've read that a lot of people hate on Brady for some reason or another, and I wondering the reasons why?

Is it just because he's the QB of the Patriots?
Is it because he plays for Bill Belichick?
Is it because the Patriots are so much better than anyone else?

Or does it have to do with Brady himself?

I've always considered him the the textbook drop back QB who grades even higher than Manning in the areas of pocket presence and overall field awareness.

And in the same week no less.


In the very few times the Pats have struggled during Brady's time there he was very quick to place thinly veiled blame on some of his teammates and/or coaches. He defends running up the score.

Yeah, that's about all I got, but I'm working on it.

Default Re: Why do you NOT like Tom Brady?

Simple - he plays for the wrong team.

I think it shows a real lack of sportsmanship to run up the score the way they do, as well, but I don't pin that on Brady, really. When they're up several TDs in the second half and go for it on 4th down instead of taking the FG points, that is the epitome of no class.

Default Re: Why do you NOT like Tom Brady?

I have no hate for the guy, but I think he gets a bad wrap as being somewhat arrogant. Probably a case of being guilty by association (Belichick) more than anything he has done.

Besides, he scores some hotties, so props there.



*Disclaimer*
In no way is this an endorsement for the Patriots....

Default Re: Why do you NOT like Tom Brady?

I used to like him. But I think now if you add playing for the Patriots THIS YEAR, playing for Belichik and mainly the fact that he is a cyborg that just walks around with no expression. It is really weird. I'd much rather see a Favre or Romo or someone enjoying the game and Brady looks like he punches in the coordinates on his arm pad and then completes his mission. There is no real hate for him, I just think this year they enjoy the "eff U" stuff too much. You can see his grins after they keep running it up. His mouth moves slightly upward.

Default Re: Why do you NOT like Tom Brady?

I have no beef with Brady. He's a great QB, as well as Manning, Favre, etc. Romo is good, but IMO it's too soon to mention him with the great QBs.

They're winners, how can you not like them?

If you dont like getting 50 dropped on you, stop em. No whineing in pro football. What are they supose to do, coast through 2 and a half quarters? You cant do that in football. Thats when teams get hot and roll you. They arent doing anything wrong.

The problem is going for it twice on 4th down while up by 30 something in the 3rd and 4th quarters. It isn't as simple as "stop them." It is how they are going about it. Even the people up there are strating to get on hoody.

Default Re: Why do you NOT like Tom Brady?

throwing the ball downfield when you are up by 30 points in the 4th Quarter is an act devoid of class....but no one has ever accused Belichik of being classy. I think its a matter of going 17-0, breaking Peyton's record, and giving the finger to all the 'cheater' talk from the beginning of the season.

What needs to happen is a team needs to take a cheap shot at Brady the next time they pull that stuff. If you want to score 50...fine...but your QB is going to be hurting at the end of the game and if he gets injured, well then you have no one to blame but yourself. Something tells me they wont win a SB much less go 18-0 if they dont have Brady.

If Belichik wants to play with no class, a team needs to step up and do likewise. Then he will learn a lesson...until then, he will just run up the score on every team they play.

Probably because he wins championships, throws a crazy amount of touchdowns, and could probably pull any American female.

I don't have a problem with him.
