you said 'glad he's out with an injury' = celebrating an injury
No. Being glad and celebrating are two different things.
Don't deliberately try to stretch gladness into a celebration because it retroactively fits your argument that doesn't work because it was based on you jumping to a conclusion you shouldn't have jumped to.
If you don't have a deep threat, how are you throwing the ball down the field with confidence? We're blaming Brady for hitting the open man 8 yards in front of him, rather than forcing something to a covered David Patten 30 yards down the field?
A good QB hits an open man in a window down the field when necessary. All the great ones do it, but I've yet to see Brady toss the deep ball accurately into a tiny window.
You can even look at a guy like Eli Manning and the throw he made to Mario Manningham in the last SB - perfectly accurate when it needed to be. If Brady has that same situation, he probably doesn't even throw the pass because he's too conservative, and if he does, it's probably not accurate.
The same can be said of the Roethlisberger throw to Santonio Homes against the Cardinals even though it was shorter. Brady probably doesn't even attempt it let alone complete that one. It has to be perfect to work and Ben made it happen, but Brady doesn't make those tough throws.
Brady takes and completes little throws or wide open down field strikes. He doesn't throw many INTs because he never tries to hit the small windows, and sometimes you have to do that to win.
Heck, Kurt Warner practically made a career out of hitting the small windows with precision accuracy, and I'd take Warner from the Rams days or the Cardinals SB run over Brady every single time. He hits the necessary throws and actually makes plays to will the team to a win rather than riding the coat tails of a talented team. If Brady was on those Cardinals, there is no way they even make it to that SB with the Steelers unless Fitzgerald did even more than he already did for Warner.
It's interesting that Brady dinks and dunks all the time, yet his yards per catch are higher than Peyton's, who can throw the ball into tight spaces down the field.
That's because Welker and the others get a ton of YAC. *rolls eyes*
Check the numbers. Curtis Martin had 1152 yards in 1997. Antowain Smith had 1157 yards in 2001. Don't try to portray the Patriots as being an empty lineup that Brady somehow transformed. They were already a playoff team with Super Bowl aspirations when he took over.
Agreed 100%. A talented team carried Brady to wins and he gets all the credit.
