Tom Brady wouldn’t trade his pass-catchers for Peyton Manning’s

As long as the Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning battles have raged, the question of supporting casts has always been a subtext.

And while Manning has a holster full of weapons at his disposal in Denver now, Brady has nothing to apologize for with his current help.

Brady said during his weekly spot on WEEI that he’s good with his current group of pass-catchers.

“I love the guys that I play with,” Brady said, via Phil Perry of CSNNE.com. “I wouldn’t change any of them for anybody. The group that I’ve been lucky enough to play with — and I’ve had some great ones over the years. As a quarterback, you work all offseason with the group of guys and you develop a chemistry and a camaraderie with each other, and it’s great when it all pays off.”

When Brady and Manning — who play again this week, in case you haven’t heard already — met in the 2006 AFC title game, it was a big talking point, since Manning had Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne compared to Brady’s Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney.

But after the display Brady put on yesterday, spreading it around to tight end Rob Gronkowski (nine catches, 149 yards, three touchdowns) and wide receivers Brandon LaFell (11-124-1) along with slot guy Julian Edelman and emerging tight end Tim Wright during a 51-point outburst against the Bears, he’s content with what he has.

As for the individual matchup, Brady praised Manning for the way he’s played the last year and a half, and admitted the meetings have become more special to him over the years.

“Probably five, six years ago you don’t think about those things,” Brady said. “But you’re right, as you mature a little bit and realize this could always be the last one, then you do. It’s pretty special. He’s been one of the greatest players to ever play. I’ve been fortunate to share a field with one of the best players that ever has played the game. Every time we play a Peyton Manning-led team it comes down to the wire. Everything’s usually at stake.

“We had a few opportunities last year, we won the first one, lost the second one. This year we’ve got to be at our best. Fortunately I don’t have to go against him, our defense does. I’ve got to go up against Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller and T.J. Ward. They’ve got a whole challenge they present in and of itself. They’re a really well-balanced team. They do a lot of things well. It means we’re going to have to be at our best. Hopefully we can go out and give our fans something cheer about. It will be a fun day.”

And perhaps we’ll hear more about it over the course of the week.

  1. That’s what known in the industry as a “lie”.

    Unless we are specifically only talking about Gronk.

  2. Ask the question again next time he’s caught on camera grilling his WR when he actually made a bad throw.

  3. Whenever these games come around they are usually spectacular and when they’re over I can only help but wonder who is going to fill this void when they’re both gone… I guess we may have Rodgers-Brees for a few years after that, but it’s still just not the same IMO.

  4. Demaryius Thomas > Brandon LaFell
    Emmanuel Sanders > Julian Edelman
    Julius Thomas < Rob Gronkowski
    Peyton has the edge.

  5. Of Brady’s 5 in-completions on Sunday 4 were drops. He was in the zone. Amazingly Gronk, LaFell, and Wright caught 27 of 27 targets.

  6. Brady’s never been one to throw his supporting cast (which seems to be rapidly improving) under the bus, unlike “we had some protection problems” Manning who shifted the blame to his O-line following his annual playoff flameout.

  7. Tom is just pumping up his guys. Fact is, both teams have good receivers and both teams have good quarterbacks. Nevertheless, the bozos in the media will debate this ad nauseum.

  8. Foxboro is not one of Manning’s favorite places to play. I don’t know what the oucome will be,but I do know one thing- it’s going to be LOUD,just the way he hates it. Just ask the scoreboard operator in Denver. Go Pats!

  9. I’ll be so glad when Brady retires; finally people will stop talking about him like he’s the second coming of . He’s not that good everyone; even I can throw a pass to a big lunkhead like Mr. Glass with that kind of pass protection. It has been proved over and over again that if Brady’s pass protection breaks down even a little bit, he’s terrible.

  10. Brady, just keep your mouth shut. You lose credibility when you save nonsense.
    Brady only had great WR’s for like 2 years of his career. Belicheat has done a poor job with that.

  11. Let’s just hope it is a good game. Nothing better than a heart attack game…down to the wire…..edge of your seat. This could be the last time two of the greatest ever QBs meet. Drop the hate (for either side) and enjoy it.

  12. Manning’s passes have no velocity on them whatsoever.. it’s amazing that a guy who lacks the arm strength at this point in his career to fit passes into tight windows can continue to loft balls to a spot & elite DBs can never seen to get between the ball & the receiver ..you’ll never see uglier passes go for 4ooyds & 4 TDs/game in your life, it’s truly perplexing

  13. How funny would that be if TJ Ward picks off a pass or picks up a fumble and Gronk comes out of nowhere and takes his knee out???

    Karma’s a b$tch Ward… Better keep your eyes open at all times this Sunday at Foxboro…

  14. Brady’s weapons are fine – I don’t understand all the constant pity parties thrown for him

    Gronk is bar none the most dominant TE in the game
    Brandon LaFell put up great numbers despite playing in a run-heavy offense and having Cam throw him the ball (the Broncos actually had LaFell rated higher than Sanders during free agency)
    Endelman is good for 100+ catches a year in the Welker role
    Tim Wright led the league in rookie TE receptions despite playing on a dysfunctional Bucs team with Glennon throwing him the ball; this guy looks to be their new Hernandez
    Amendola despite being a forgotten man, we saw what he did in St.Louis carrying that passing attack despite having inferior QBs throwing to him
    Dobson is physically gifted and could develop into the deep threat they’ve wanted for a long time

    This is an extremely underrated and very good cast of receivers – it’s the Pats OL that is the big weakness on offense and even then, they’ve picked up their level of play as a unit since KC.

    To say Brady has a poor supporting cast is just lazy regurgitation of a false narrative

  15. What Brady said is that he wouldn’t trade his guys for anyone…he has often said that he doesn’t make personnel decisions, nor should he.

    He then went on to compliment manning… although complimenting megahead who scripts and rehearses his own celebratory personal accomplishments , rather than team achievements, is not something I would do. Brady has had to work his butt off to get where he is, and still has the fire in his belly, whereas manning was born with a silver football as his head, with daddy leading the way all his life, fixing any bumps in the road.

  16. Its true, Brady would rather not have the dirty and evil Julius Thomas who throws lots of dirty blocks and tries to end other player’s careers when they are not looking for the dirty cheap shot.

    As a matter of fact, the donkeys have dirty defensive linemen to always try to poke other players in the eyes (ask Geno Smith) and their offensive linemen team together for illegal chop blocks. Such systemic dirty and evil plays can only come from the top. And Peyton Manning keeps his sanctimonious mouth shut and eyes closed to all of this with the blessing of the NFL.

    Of course if the NFL’s poster boy Manning was not on the Donkeys roster, then the NFL would have come down on the Donkeys just as they finally did on the Saints.

  17. hey manning fanboys.

    3 sb appearances. 3 td’s/4 int’s.

    5 td’s if you count the ones peyton threw to the other team. elway isn’t any better. 5 sb appearances, 3 td’s/8 picks.
    these guys aren’t in tom bradys league.

  18. Demaryius Thomas > Brandon LaFell
    Emmanuel Sanders Rob Gronkowski

    D. Thomas is a much more reliable target than Brandon LaFell… If it came down to a 3rd and Goal with :02 seconds left in the game, down 23-17… D.T. is the guy most quarterbacks would want on their side.

    Julian Edelman may not have the speed or reach that Sanders has, but he is reliable, has field smarts, is a great route runner and is tough as nails… Edelman has the edge here.

    Gronkowski has everything you could ask for in a TE… Size, reach, strength, great blocker, great hands… he does lack in two major departments… smarts(He is not the brightest) and health(Gets injured far too often, you can’t be called reliable if you can not stay on the field) Thomas is Gronkowski’s twin, but with football smarts(He knows where he is supposed to be on the field) edge goes to Thomas.

    Peyton Manning has the better cast, especially the Offensive line/RB’s. Brady just knows better than to alienate his receivers… What QB would talk down on his teammates?

  19. Darn, wish he were in my fantasy league.

    I’ll trade you Brandon LaFell and Julian Edelman for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders — how does that sound, Tom?

  20. Manning and his guys do it every week.

    Brady’s guys do it when they play the bears. Our worst defense in 90 years of the team history. A defense and scheme that made Tannehill and EJ Manuel look like future hall of famers.

    I dont think brady is taking into account who they played yesterday.

  21. I cant stand Manning. So phony. Script a celebration? Im not even a fan of Brady but he’s at least a cool dude. Manning is fake as hell.

  22. Brady hasn’t lost a step, but let’s be honest here: the bears D is atrocious & in no way compares to Denver’s D this year. Aside from that, QB’s don’t play each other, I’m sick of seeing that card being played.

  23. Denver hasn’t won anything since they twice cheated the salary cap and were caught taping other teams practices.

  24. Why is it news that TB wont throw his guys under the bus?

    Do you expect to say “I couldn’t trade them fast enough, my guys suck” ?

    I don’t think TB’s guys suck but come on, what do you expect?

  25. The Broncos have better receivers but Brady said exactly what he should say. Brady is not going to trash any of his teammates, nor should he, period.

    Go Patriots!

  26. “Denver hasn’t won anything since they twice cheated the salary cap and were caught taping other teams practices.”
    How many SB wins does NE have after Spygate? How many of these teams replaced their head coach after the scandals?
    Based on that, which team owners have the highest ethics?

    thought so

  27. Brady is trying to rally the troops with B.S.

    Rob Gronkowski
    Brandon LaFell
    Julian Edelman
    Tim Wright

    vs.

    Demaryius Thomas
    Julius Thomas
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Wes Welker

    If Brady says that the Patriots receivers are more preferable, he needs a straight jacket.

  28. hey manning fanboys.

    3 sb appearances. 3 td’s/4 int’s.

    5 td’s if you count the ones peyton threw to the other team. elway isn’t any better. 5 sb appearances, 3 td’s/8 picks.
    these guys aren’t in tom bradys league.

    ——————————————————————

    No manning fan boy here, cant stand either guy.

    But can you tell us brady’s record without the team cheating?

    Pretty sure its still at ZERO

  29. Don’t forget about Vereen, he ‘s a nice weapon out of the backfield in the passing game. Of course Brady is gonna stick up for his teamates, and Denver’s are better. But, I don’t think the disparity is that big. Brady spreads the ball around a bit more, that’s why Denver’s top guys arer always gonna have better numbers. The Pats have averaged 40 pts/gm the last 4, with most of those D’s ranked highly in the league going in(Cincy,Buff,Jets).

  30. Of course Brady says this because this is what good teammates say (even if they don’t really believe it).

    If it were Manning with the Patriots receivers and vice versa, he’d absolutely say he would want to switch them because Manning is about Manning.

  31. “Ask the question again next time he’s caught on camera grilling his WR when he actually made a bad throw.”

    That could be difficult. Brady was 30 for 35 yesterday and 3 of the 5 incompletions were drops.

    Why do people like this even post comments? It is figuratively tugging on Superman’s cape.

  32. C’mon man, what do you expect him to say?

    ..”I would much rather have D. Thomas and J. Thomas!” That doesn’t look good for the Patriots.

    I am not a huge fanboy of either. That being said, simply saying the success Manning has enjoyed was simply because he was a lucky sperm is not a good observation.

    Manning has put in the work and is notorious for planning everything down to the nth degree. The actual games and results are just the result of all that planning

    If being a good QB was only a matter of genetics, then I believe Joe Montana has a kid who could not even start in several out of the way colleges, Phil Simms as a few kids who were not good QBs, etc etc etc

    Google manning and a certain female athletic trainer…it may open your eyes relative to dear old dad.

  35. How many SB wins does NE have after Spygate? How many of these teams replaced their head coach after the scandals?
    Based on that, which team owners have the highest ethics?
    ———-
    Who cares about ethics? Why would the Pats replace their coach because of an espn created media controversy? The Broncos are cheaters. At least the Pats winning % is over 100 points higher since they taped those 6 plays vs the Jets. They have also been to 2 SB’s.

  36. Ha ha ha … yes he would. He absolutely would.

    He would also like to play the pudding-soft Chicago defense every week …

  37. It’ll be a good test for Revis. Revis had his way with the Bears receiver corp. I’m hoping he’ll shut down whoever he is line up against on Sunday.

    As for Tom, I’ll take him over Peyton any day of the week and twice on Sundays (including in the SuperBowl). Peyton is tremendous, but Tom gets slim pickings at WR and has to make due. If Tom had Peyton’s receiver corp, they’d be talking about Tom and not Peyton.

    Peyton is great. Honestly, it probably comes down to personal preference, if we’re being honest with ourselves. Aside from Montana, Starr, and Unitas, there’s no one other than Tom I’d rather have the ball in the final drive with the game on the line.

  38. Well, you can’t expect him to diss his own receivers.

    Gronkowski is the only Patriots receiver who ranks up there with Manning’s receivers. That said, I still like the Patriots this coming Sunday.

    Brady won SBs with these guys.

    Actually he won with guys like Law, McGinest, Vrabel, Bruschi and Harrison. Those defenses carried the team when they were winning those superbowls. Manning’s Colts team showed what happens in the playoffs with no defense.

  40. Mannings Colts teams had 2 of the best pass rushers of the decade, they were hardly terrible on D.

  41. I’d say that for a guy who was drafted in the 18th round,199th overall,he’s done pretty well with the guys he was given. As I said last week, Manning pretty much cherry-picked his team and still got embarassed in the SB. Give me Brady every time.

    Because you played the Bears yesterday with an atrocious defense. Tebow could have put up those numbers. TEBOW!!!!

  43. Peyton has had better offensive guys around him in his career, but Tom has had much better defensive guys. I also think Tom has had also a better offensive line over the years.

  44. David Patten
    Troy Brown
    Deion Branch
    David Givens

    Brady won SBs with these guys.

    Those guys are much better than you give them credit for being. Sure they couldn’t make the kind of plays that Calvin Johnson can but they all did what QB’s like most of all. They got open and they caught the ball. Plus, they were all pretty good with the ball in their hands. The biggest downfall to their careers were injuries. Only Troy Brown was able to stay healthy for much of his career. It’s also important to recognize that for the last 2 super bowls, he had all 4 of them on the same time. That is not a bad receiving crew. They are the type of receivers Brady likes. They got open, ran the correct routes and caught the ball. Brady just had to throw it to the open guy. Brady hasn’t won a super bowl without at least 2 of those guys on the team. This isn’t to put Brady down but it’s to recognize the talent of those receivers. The 3 most important abilities a receiver needs to posses are route running (getting open with precise routes and being where the QB expects you to be); knowledge (being in sync with a QB knowing the defense and making the proper adjustments based on that knowledge) and catching the ball, especially on crucial downs. Troy Brown, David Givens and Deion Branch we’re all exceptional in those 3 areas and they we’re all really good after the catch. Deion Branch, Troy Brown and David Patten all had the ability to get open downfield too. They are very talented receivers, despite their smaller size.

  45. “Because you played the Bears yesterday with an atrocious defense. Tebow could have put up those numbers. TEBOW!!!!”

    Bears were 3-1 on the road before yesterday.

    OK. 2 + Jets – 1

    Cool story supported by zero facts. Did you know that five different Broncos players scored 10 touchdowns or more last year? Apparently not. Never mind the fact that it was the all-time NFL record.

    ====

    Thats not the point!! Its easy to analyze after the game.

  48. “Who cares about ethics? Why would the Pats replace their coach because of an espn created media controversy? The Broncos are cheaters. At least the Pats winning % is over 100 points higher since they taped those 6 plays vs the Jets. They have also been to 2 SB’s.”

    ———————–

    Absolutely right. Plus following the 2004 SB season, that defense got old (their star linebacker suffered a stroke just days later) and by 2008 it was pretty much entirely turned over. They no longer had Willie McGinest, Ty Law, Tedy Bruschi, Jarvis Green (who had a way of getting to Peyton Manning), and Mike Vrabel. I remember even during that 2007 18-0 run, a Colts offensive player commented during the game (Colts were up 20-10 at the time) that “they” (Pats defense) were “too slow to keep up with them.” And he was right. Somehow the Pats stormed back to win in the final 4 minutes thanks to two Brady drives, a wicked 3rd and 10 catch by Randy Moss, and a Jarvis Green sack of Manning.

    The team has been searching for a defensive identity ever since. Their signature CB since then (pre Talib) was Asante Samuel. Now for the first time in years the secondary is getting better than worse.

  49. Its not even close.
    Soon the “ever neutral” Heartlanders will be posting about how much superior Matt Light & Nick Kaczur were over Jeff Saturday & Tariq Glenn.
    Or how much an upgrade Richard Seymour & Willie McGinest was over Robert Mathis & Dwight Feeney. Critical mistakes lose big games. Give me TB12 the “game manager” every time.

  50. No need to worry Saint Thomas, Prince Peyton wouldn’t even sniff at the offer.

    Yes there is supporting your teammates, but this is a crazy statement. Gronk is the only area that you can claim superiority, and even then its hit or miss due to injuries.

  51. People are going to be shocked but the Patriots are good things to beat Denver this week. It’s in Foxboro and New England doesn’t lose at Foxboro.
    People will expect Manning to win, but a major upset is on and it might not even be close.

  52. Cool story supported by zero facts.
    —————–
    Not talking about last yr. This yr most of Denver’s passing offense is is to 2 wrs, and 1 TE. The rest of the cast, including Welker and the RBs, are not contributing much to the passing game. Hope you like those facts.

  53. 6-2 is a good start for the Pats. But the toughest half remains. Or does it?

    On the one hand, having to play @ San Diego and @ Green Bay and @ Indianapolis is a little daunting, but these three teams at least had a little of that luster tarnished as of late. Still …

    Denver at home kicks off the second half. If they pull off that win, I’ll feel much more confident about the playoffs but as the best teams showed this year, holding Manning to 30 points is tough enough … hanging more than 30 on that new and improved Denver defense could be just as tough.

    But on the other hand, they’re already through their road games at division rivals Buffalo and Miami. Getting them at home in the second half will be a nice edge within the division.

  54. “It’ll be a good test for Revis. Revis had his way with the Bears receiver corp. I’m hoping he’ll shut down whoever he is line up against on Sunday.”

    —————–

    Hopefully he’ll keep D. Thomas in check. During last year’s AFCCG, Peyton dinked and dunked to him up and down the field. But then we have to put someone on E. Sanders and then hope a motivated Welker doesn’t run wild.

    Unfortunately I think what will be the Pats’ undoing is that defensive line. They were only able to pressure Cutler when they brought the extra man and BB is not about to order up those blitzes against Manning. So my concern is Manning will be able to stand back there and fire away all day.

  55. Patriots Strategy (and only hope):

    Let Manning throw wild on them. Let the Broncos run up a 24-0 lead. The offense will then sputter inexplicably (perhaps from exhaustion or perhaps from complacency), and the Pats will score 31 unanswered.

  56. Five Super Bowl appearances, 3 wins , greatest winning percentage, most post season wins, 11 divisions. Tom Brady has had a brilliant career. To the trolls out here who question him, you are putting your biases ahead of reality.

  57. Did you expect him to pull a Megahead and throw his teammates under the bus (see 2005 when “we had some protection issues” after losing to Pittsburgh in the playoffs, or in 2010 after losing the Super Bowl when he basically said the Colts had no run game).

  58. Typical classless comment from the system QB who is only good because of spygate. Kraft the cheater clearly paid off the Bears to play bad on Sunday. We all know the Patriots would be 0-16 every single year without cheating.

    Or something.

  59. I’m certainly not a Patriots fan but I will say this about Tom Brady: he has more class than to call out a middle class worker in front of the media and humiliate someone just trying to do his best. Shame on Petyon Manning. Tom Brady has more character.

  60. I’m shocked. I thought for sure he’d throw his own guys under the bus and openly wish he had Demariyus Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Julian Thomas to throw to.

  61. Let’s face it…if Welker catches that pass,they would have won SB ring #4. Gisele was not wrong in that instance.

    ————–

    And if Asante Samuel didn’t choke they would have gone 19-0. that’s another fact that haters cant account for. If they won because of taping, yet Samuel drops the easy pick for the win, what role did not being able to tape play in him dropping that?

  62. LMAOL,PEYTON GETS TOM’S WR’S WHENEVER COACH BELICHEAT GETS RID OF THEM,LIKES TO TRADE FOR 6-7 RD DRAFT PICKS,WHEN HE DOES GET THEM GOOD,DENVER GRABS THEM, LOL!! *when you make it to Big Game,NY GIANTS BEAT YOU,hahaha

  63. What did DT and Julius Thomas do before Peyton?
    How good was Sanders in Pittsburgh?
    Welker looks washed up.

    So are Denver’s receivers really that much better? Or does Peyton make them look great?

  64. What did DT do before Peyton?

    —-

    Catching walk-off TD passes from Tim Tebow in the playoffs ought to count for something…

  65. The media makes it seem like Tom Brady has never had receivers, its a ridiculous claim. Look at the names he’s had

    Brandon Lloyd
    Randy Moss
    Wes Welker
    Donte Stallworth
    Troy Brown
    Danny Amendola
    Gronk
    Julian Edlemen
    Aaron Herdendez
    Brandon LaFell
    Chad Johnson
    Torrey Holt

  66. Funny how when manning first signed it was , “He’s Stupid, Denver has no receivers.” Now all of a sudden its because of them manning is great…. COMEDY…

  67. Speaking of analysis, expect Bill to go heavy on DB’s and open up the run to Denver.

    Denver may rush for over 200 yards and still lose the game.

    I highly doubt it.

    ————
    I’m sure Manning would love to face the Jets, Bills, and Dolphins twice every season.
    #nosuperbowlssincespygate

  69. Lets get some facts straight…Manning has always had HOF receivers…bull cr@#! Harrison was in the league for basically one season when Manning was drafted…not a HOF receiver! Wayne was drafted to a Manning-led team…Made into a HOF receiver because of manning! Dallas Clark drafted to a Manning-led team…never going to be a HOF tight end (look what happened to him when he didn’t have manning! Who had ever heard f Julius Thomas before Manning got to Denver? Still waiting! That is what I thought. What has Decker done since demanding the big money after playing 2 seasons with Manning? Waiting! Yea, I thought so, nothing! Manning has only had Welker for 2 seasons, Brady had him for 6…he is a wash in the conversation, and obviously wasn’t considered too valuable when Belichek tossed him to the curb. And finally, what did Sanders do in Pitt before coming to Denver and becoming a pro-bowl caliber receiver? Correct…NOTHING!!!!!!!!

    No one is saying that Brady is not great and a HOF QB, but Manning made his receivers that! Bar Nun!!!! Give it a rest haters.

    ———————————————————–
    Denver’s record in Foxboro is 5 – 7.

  71. An unnamed source said Brady secretly told him he WOULD trade all his WR’s for Manning’s WR’s…in confidence though.
    —————————-
    Total fabrication.

  72. Tom is a professional. Of course he’s going to say that. Any thing else would be unprofessional. Even if he’s just saying it to encourage his receivers, Brady is a man’s man. He’s completely content. His lip is curled, he’s focused, and he’s going to win- bad receivers or not.

  73. I’m a Denver fan but I admire him. I remember a broncos game in Denver where during warmups he sprinted to Denver’s end zone, stopped, and flexed. That’s my kind of quarterback.
