Re: [patriotzip] McCourty second for rookie of the year, 18 game season, Brady etc.
- I did respect the Bradshaw Steelers Susan although I knew a lot less about football in those days. I think the Steelers turned dirty under Cowher who I don't respect at all.
My understanding is the injuries Brady had in the playoffs were the same ones he dealt with during the season.

Sigh....Super Bowl is history, without us yet again. I was still ticked off yesterday that is wasn't us in there--watched the replays and neither team really looked better than we did. In 2008 we should have won it, 2009 we didn't get in even at 11-5 (who knows how that would have gone), 2010 we really didn't look strong enough I guess, but this year I really did think we had what it takes.
The "deer in the headlights" play from Brady really surprised me that day and still does--just don't get it from a guy that won 3 Super Bowls and is not a rookie. I'm wondering if the injuries were more than anyone let on and made him gun-shy??
Well, at least Mr. "insult to both men and women" didn't get his 3rd ring and Brady's still left tied with Aikman with 3 rings. I think Bradshaw and Montana are in the lead tied with 4 each? The Packers don't look like a dynasty to me, so I'm hoping that's it for them.
What don't you respect about the Steelers and Bradshaw--is it Bradshaw himself or the team as a whole? I've read that they played some rough, thug football even back then.
GO PATRIOTS FOR 2011-2012!!!!!!!!!111

Here is a vote to NOT go to an 18 game season. I'd like to see them go back
to a 14 game season but Mammon must be fed so that will not happen.
In my eyes Tom Brady has lost his best QB in the NFL status. He is now the
best in the NFL in the regular season but whatever he had that made him the
best in the playoffs is now on the way to the leaching field. Sure hope he
can find it again but he has now established himself as a liability in the
playoffs. Especially if it is true that the first quarter interception
against the Jets rattled him for the rest of the game. I find that nearly
impossible to believe but I won't deny it.
Leigh Bodden says he is recovered enough from his shoulder injury that he
could play in the SB if he had to.
The Pats have 6 picks in the first 92 selections in the upcoming entry draft.
Bob Kraft says the Pats will do everything they can to sign Logan Mankins.
I wonder if this is a good idea as he is another great regular season
performer who struggles in the playoffs. Boston already has a team that is
great in the regular season and falls apart in the playoffs in the Bruins
with the Red Sox a close second although they do win it all now and then.
Would love to see Green Bay beat the Steelers today and I think they are
the better team. Haven't respected Pittsburgh since the Bradshaw days.
There is definitely something rotten in Mudville when Michael Vick wins the
Associated Press come-back-player of the year award with 29.5 votes for
coming back to the NFL from jail and Wes Welker gets two votes for coming
back from a ripped up knee and a separated shoulder. My days of enjoying
sports in any capacity are surely numbered.
