This is what I'm talking about. You under rate Brown as much as you over rate Brady. (You said this already.)
Yes, I said it multiple times so you'd get it.
Brown's stats don't lie in that 2001 season. (Brown's don't, but Brady's do. OK.)
Brown's stats are the product of getting open consistently because he was a good receiver.
(You don't know the definition of safety valve. It's the pass you make, generally to a RB, when you can't find anyone open downfield and you need to get rid of the ball. Brown was Brady's go to guy in 2001.)
Now you want to argue over semantics. The point is without Brown getting open consistently, Brady would have struggled more than he did.
That role is CRUCIAL for Brady, because if he didn't have the outlet receiver, he'd be far worse than he is now (argument doesn't apply, as Brown wasn't his safety valve. If anything over his career, this player is Kevin Faulk.)
The argument DOES apply because you're arguing pointless semantics. If anything, you've added to the argument by naming Faulk as another player who assisted Brady and inflated his stats.
(Yes, if you take away Moss, Welker, Gronk, Hernandez, he wouldn't put up elite numbers like he has been, he'd probably put up closer numbers to 2001-2006. Again, learn what "safety valve" means.)
Brady's numbers during the years you mention were not as great as you seem to portray them as being. Others have already pointed this out.
(QB is a large part of winning games.)
Not nearly as large a part as they are given credit for in most scenarios.
This is true especially for Brady, who is considered "elite" largely based upon his team winning games, which I maintain would have happened no matter who was under center (and it DID happen when Cassell was QB, which proves this assertion correct).
most QBs get more credit than they deserve for team wins (I disagree, as they're the most important player on the field. Teams who win games generally have good QBs)
Being the most important player on the field does not mean you won the game all by yourself.
The way people talk about Brady makes him sound like he snapped the ball to himself, blocked for himself, threw to himself, and scored every touchdown himself. He also must have played every defensive position and every special team position, because that's how much credit you and others give him. THAT is how over rated he is.
