      Excellent point about career comparisons.  I'm not sure Brady has hit his peak yet, however.  As a cranial QB whom excells at pocket awareness and making the right decision, I see his talent improving still over the next few years. (scary thought)
      I also believe Drew began his demise when he lost his security blanket.  Bledsoe was best at the mid-range pass which Coates excelled at utilizing.  True that Ben made Drew better but the reverse is likewise true.  I'll say nary a bad word about Drew although the strengths of Brady absolutely highlight the weakest parts of Drew's game.
      Go Pats!

      True Pete Carroll should be considered as one of the worst patriots coach in franchise history. I also believe you cant compare Bledsoe to Brady in the 99 season because he was not at his peak in his career. Brady is in his prime right now. 96 you could compare the two.

      interesting to compare Bledsoe then to Brady now.  To look back with
      an un-biased eye, it was really clear that Bledsoe was not a good QB
      when he was rushed and another thing that stuck in my mind is how
      sloppy Bledsoe looked when he had to check down to a RB.  Brady (in
      my mind) has always had the ability to "lead" his recievers
      accurately, so that they are able to get the most out of every
      catch, however, when bledsoe checked down to his back, very often it
      seemed the ball was behind them or lofted in so high the RB had to
      wait for the ball, etc.  I don't want to sound too down on Bledsoe,
      in the 2nd half, he had time to set his feet and he was almost

      I have to admit, the first time they showed the Pats sideline and
      their was PETE CARROLL I think I threw up a little in my mouth.  I
      can't be the only one that thinks he dserves to go down as one of
      the worst coaches in Pats history?
