Flacco considers himself to be an elite QB and rips people who think otherwise.
I know you'll disagree, but I think Flacco has more right to consider himself elite than Brady does.
Bearing in mind that all NFL QBs get too much credit for their team's wins and too much grief for their team's losses, the credit and grief Flacco gets is right about where it deserves to be. As for Brady, well, you already know I think he gets too much credit and not enough grief.
I’m not sure how you get this impression that Brady is so arrogant. I see many others who are much more full of themselves.
There are plenty of examples of it. I'll give you one right now off the top of my head, first thing to pop into my mind, and I'll even post a link so you can't complain I made it up or there is no evidence for it.
Seahawk players during a game to come see him after the game when the Patriots won. That was very arrogant and it cost him when the Patriots actually lost, and one of the players he told to see him after the game - cornerback Richard Sherman - made sure to do just that, then mocked Brady on twitter.
Sure, Sherman was a bit arrogant in his response, but I was glad to see the pompous arrogant Brady get some of his own medicine.
You CAN make judgements on someone being a bad person
You think my friend (cousin, actually) is a bad person for having a child with a woman he wasn’t committed to having a relationship with. This is the only information you have on this person.
with limited information. For example, if you learned someone was a child molester or a serial killer and knew nothing else about them, would you think they were a bad person? Probably, yet you know only those things about them.
Limited information doesn't mean you can't believe someone is a bad person (or good person, or whatever). You can then adjust your opinion of them if and when you gain more information.
If I were to make assumptions on the kind of person you are, (and remember I’ve had a lot more communication with you than you have with my cousin, or Tom Brady) would you consider that fair?
People often attempt to do just that to various others on internet message boards. When they try it with me, they are almost always completely wrong in their assumptions. Often this is because I do not fit whatever pattern they assume exists based on what they (often mistakenly) read into my posts.
So no, it wouldn't be fair, as you don't know anything about me and would be making assumptions. The difference is I'm not making assumptions. I'm going based on facts and making a judgement of the person based on those facts.
I grew up in a family where my parents were divorced in my early teenage years. I will tell you that I was much better off than I would have been had my parents stayed together because they wanted to raise me under the same roof. You should understand that before you start making bold proclamations about mandatory operations.
Sure, those kinds of scenarios happen all the time. There are a lot of factors at work, and none is bigger than your age at the time your parents split apart. The younger the child, the more they are affected by the split and the lack of having both parents in their lives on a regular basis.
As for my statements, I will not be discussing them, as I indicated.
Are you done addressing the statistical evidence against your argument and lack of evidence backing up your Spygate arguments?
As I said, the statistical evidence suggests Brady was slightly better than average as an NFL QB for most of his career, then had better seasons when he had better weapons (as would be expected). Put that together and the evidence says he's slightly better than average.
SpyGate has plenty of evidence, but I'm not going to waste time listing it all for everyone who doesn't want to bother looking it up for themselves. Please don't try to claim it never happened because that will only show you need to do research yourself.
Irresponsible. One key component to poverty is single parent homes. I can't imagine that it's going to be a problem for Brady/Moynahan but, as they say "monkey see, monkey do."
You don't get a free pass on irresponsible behavior because you are rich and/or famous. Sure, money and fame help to handle issues that are presented, but it doesn't make your behavior more responsible or correct.
Most people aren't "bad people." People are human. They make mistakes.
I'll respectfully disagree with the first statement. The second two are true, but don't excuse anything.
People are inherently bad, but have the capability to do good. But again, I'm not going to get into some metaphysical debate about the nature of people, so that's all I'll say on this.
Who hasn't been, at least once?
I haven't been irresponsible with Tom Brady's dick. I can't speak for MikeT or Nomar.
Now THAT made me laugh.
