Tom Brady will add to his many playoff records on Saturday

Getty Images

When Patriots quarterback Tom Brady takes the field on Saturday night against the Titans, he’ll add to several of the career postseason records he records he owns.

Brady has rewritten the NFL’s playoff records, owning almost every career record a quarterback can own. Here are a few of those records:

Games played: Saturday’s game will be Brady’s 41st postseason game. Adam Viantieri is next in NFL history, with 32 playoff games.

Games started: Brady will also start his 41st his postseason game. Jerry Rice is next with 29 postseason starts.

Games as winning quarterback: Brady has won 30 postseason games. Joe Montana is next with 16.

Passes thrown: Brady has thrown 1,589 passes in the postseason. Peyton Manning is next with 1,027.

Passes completed: Brady has completed 1,005 passes in the postseason. Peyton Manning is next with 649.

Passing yards: Brady has thrown for 11,179 yards in the postseason. Peyton Manning is next with 7,339.

Passing touchdowns: Brady has thrown 73 touchdown passes in the postseason. Joe Montana is next with 45.

  1. It’s been a great career. After this Saturday’s loss to the Titans it will be time for Brandy to retire. He is a shell of his former self. He is simply too old to continue to play.

  2. And potentially get his 250th career win, Manning is second at 200. GOAT, doing more GOATing and getting GOATier. ‘Nuff said.

  3. Basically, he became the GOAT in2014. And fun fact: you have to add any 2 (or more) other supposed goats records together to match his. Ergo exists a salty mountain of hate & denial.

  4. TB-12 is the G.O.A.T. The Pats have struggled this year but as a Pats fan I’m thrilled what Tom has done for this team the last 2 decades. Couldn’t ask anything more of a QB. Two decades of dominance never before seen in the NFL. I expect the Pats to win and move on Saturday just because they have the GOAT. If they don’t then I want to thank Tom for giving all he has for the team and us as fans, and wish him the best moving forward. All you haters can rag on the dude but no other QB can shine his cleats!! Go Pats!!

  5. I hope Brady is not too disappointed that the record of being one and done in the playoffs, nine (may be tougher to eclipse than Dimaggio’s record), is almost certainly out of his reach even if the Pats lose on Saturday night. The record of playoff losses, 13, may also be out of Brady’s reach even if he plays a few more seasons.

  6. GOAT. Whatever happens this season or next won’t change that.

    He is probably going to own all or most of those records forever. Amazing.

  7. Worthy accomplishments indeed, but seriously aided by many factors:
    – Great coach
    – Great defenses
    – Timely turnovers
    – Weak division gets home field, never made SB without bye
    – Adam V.
    – Tuck rule
    – Gillette Stadium
    – 6th rounder, no pressure
    – Serious YAC, king of short passes, players run to first downs way more than average
    – Ref calls
    – Drew Bledsoe injury
    – Deflated footballs
    – Spygate
    – Pete Carroll
    – Atlanta coaches
    One of the best and most clutch QBs in college and pro, but definitely benefited from the factors above. Got too much credit for the first 3 SBs where he was pretty much a game manager as evidenced by NE coaches dumbing down the offense for him. Guys like P. Manning and Rodgers actually engineered offenses, but didn’t have great defenses, coaches, etc. You can call it Brady hate all you want, but that’s my objective view. Football is the ultimate team sport and Brady routinely gets too much credit for overall team success.

    I’m not even sure what point you are trying to make. You can pretty much write that argument about any NFL QB thats ever had success. Football is indeed a team sport. So when it applies to all of them it becomes a non factor. Some guys do more with what they have than others and thats the real reason why Brady leads all that stuff.

  9. Patriots 28
    Titans 10

    Most be will hoping the Pats lose then sometime early in the 4th quarter when they’re dominating will realize you can’t beat Brady and BB in NE in January.

    Tannehill has no chance to succeed.

  10. Whatever excuse trolls have to think up to soil his legacy doesn’t take away his records..they will live for 100 yrs. Truly is the GOAT and I’m an Eagles fan.

  11. @nite2al – Montana & Manning played most of their careers in soft divisions, had great HCs and teammates, and clearly cheated (silicon spray & Sticky Rice in San Fran, Piped noise in Indy, HGH in Denver). Both played most of their careers in much easier weather than NE. Oh, and Bill Walsh was guilty of the original headsetgate too…

    I can go on: deflategate a salty sham, spygate totally overblown and for just 15mins into the first game after the rules changed – which even then retrospectively reinterpreted Tagliabue’s use “in game” as Fraudger’s use “in any game thereafter”. And BB never actually got those 15mins of film anyway and you can still film from a few yards further back (or employ a guy with photographic memory).

  12. That long list above that supposedly “contributed” to Brady success is about as foolish as I’ve seen…. it just goes to show that it is either ignorance or some form of jealousy/Brady hate & NOT an objective view in any way, shape or form….but that’s ok, truly objective people know that already & have been able to enjoy his greatness for nearly 20 years & hopefully get to see him display that a few more years yet to come….HOPEFULLY STILL AS A PATRIOT!!!

  13. And a happy new year!! says:

  14. ….WOW!!!

    The Greatest Quarterback In NFL History leading by example, working harder than anyone, remaining humble in the face of unparalleled success and tough as nails.

    Lets hit that OD Gear GOAT Its January!!!

  15. For the folks who trot out the lame excuse of “oh they have played in a very weak division, that’s why they get home field in the playoffs” go ahead and look back over the last 19 years and you’ll see the Patriots have been consistently beating everybody. They’re averaging almost 8 wins a season OUTSIDE of the AFC East. Even if they played in a “tough” division and went .500, they’d still be consistently winning 12 games and getting a first round bye most years anyways.

  16. Can’t see NE not signing him for at least a year. They still need time to get Stidham or whomever up to speed. Belichick isn’t one to go with a two-year guy, unless he’s got Brady-potential. NE probably won’t pay him $25-30 mil but who would? At 42, Brady doesn’t need the pressure to resurrect some ailing franchise in a year. Sign him for a year, use the draft capital on some more OL and WRs, see how he does. Pats have 9 picks with 4 compensatory picks expected to draft or wheel and deal.

  17. nite2al
    ——————-
    The coach who never guide his WR and QB on sideline. Do you really believe other QBs are not even as smart as Pats WR?

    BTW, tell your QB to stay on field for long time and score enough, he will win a lot too. Don’t believe? check the list below :
    In SB against Panthers, Pats offense played 38 mintues.
    In SB against Seahawks, Pats offense played 33 minutes.
    In SB against Falcons, Pats offense played 37 minutes during regular periods
    _In SB against Eagles, Pats offense played only 26 minutes. How did his #5 defense play?_
    In AFCCG against Chiefs, Pats offense played 39 minutes.
    In SB agaisnt Rams, Pats offense played 33 minutes.

  18. The Bills, Dolphins, and Jets werent that terrible just were unfortunate to be stuck in same division as the GOAT. These people say the AFC east was terrible but the Colts were the only team that could compete with NE. Swap any team into the AFC east and they’re guaranteed 1 loss a year and more likely 2 losses a year.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    Who’s a what now?
    A) statistically and completely wrong for the seasons during his Superbowl winning years. (although the D was a major factor in the Superb Owl last year)
    B) You’ve never heard of Tony Dungy the Hall of Fame coach?
    C) You thought that Manning was carrying that Bronco’s team, not the defense?

    This place really brings out the hot takes doesn’t it.

    Guys like P. Manning actually engineered offenses, but didn’t have great defenses, coaches, etc.

  20. I wonder how admiring & generous Patriots fans would be w/ their comments about Brady if he had been a Jet all these years? (which almost happened).

    Kudos to TB. I’ve seen enough of him to know that he really has no equal. And I hope he & his team get blown out on Saturday.

  21. I wonder how admiring & generous Patriots fans would be w/ their comments about Brady if he had been a Jet all these years?

    ——————–

    Brady was already able to score 380 points between 2001 and 2006 with only slot receivers. What did Belichick do during that period that impressed you?

    Jets would be a SB contender immediately with Brady.

    ————

    The feeling that the Patriots have struggled this year is prevalent. They have struggled in comparison to some great recent years, but they have had similar seasons many times. 5-1 in the division and 12-4 and third seed is a pretty good result. Look at the once proud Steelers. One and done 2017, no playoffs 2018 or 2019. That’s struggling. Coming off the 2001-2004 run the Patriots really struggled in 2005. It’s hard to keep it going after all those extra games. 21 extra games since 2011. The Miami loss sucked, but I think 12-4 is pretty awesome. Still a chance until someone knocks them off. If the D balls you never know what can happen. Lets gooooo!

  23. It would be incredible if he were to win one more SB and then announce his retirement.

    I just hope Belichick/Kraft do continue to destroy Brady like he has done this year with horrendous Darft Picks and Trades. I mention Kraft in here because he needs to step in and not allow Belichick to Draft Offensive weapons for Brady.

  24. not allow Belichick to Draft Offensive weapons for Brady.

    ————————————–

    I don’t know why people think Belichick is a genius with such bad record in drafting receivers for his QBs.

    He basically “find gold among stones”, get some castoff and average players in, ask Brady to try.

    The question is why don’t other coaches try the same strategy?

    Answer : other coaches know it won’t work because they don’t have Tom Brady.

  25. Retire already.
    Then you can start doing commercials for reverse mortgages and Medicare insurance.

  26. Manning is better than Brady. Brady had a better career.
    ———————————

    Come back when Manning can turn average receivers into playmakers.

    Oh, he retired already.

    Then Brady >>>>> Manning.

  27. Brady is the greatest. There really is no arguing that. But everything must come to an end, and I have a feeling this Sunday might be Brady’s last hurrah in the playoffs.

  28. We are so spoiled as Patriots fans. They have given us 20 years worth of winning and making New England proud to have them. They owe us nothing,but we still want more. Hopefully,we will get it,starting tomorrow night. Anything is possible in the NFL. GO PATS!!!

  29. Never been a fan of calling him TB-12… that Chris Godwin. You just need to say “Brady” and everyone knows who you’re taking about…
    It’s like saying “google” and everyone knows you’re referring to an internet search…

  30. Did these people exist to the “Manning carried the team” sayers?

    Dwight Freeny, Antwon Bethea, Bob Sanders, Robert Mathis, Jeff Saturday.
    Guess who was a Colt, Adam Vinatieri.
    Tony Dungy (in the hall), Jim Mora.
    Marvin Harrison (hall), Reggie Wayne (hall), Dallas Clark, E. James.
    Dome. Crowd noise pumping?
    I wouldve loved to see Brady with the green light to throw 40 times a game in a Dome with these people.
    Demaryius Thomas was good with Tebow
    2015 Broncos Defense was uhh, pretty good.

    ============================

    I guess you missed the Broncos defense that handed PManning his second title. And since ARodgers’ became starter, he has enjoyed on average a better defense than Brady.
    2008-2019
    Avg defense DVOA ranks – GB 15.75 , NE 17.08

  33. Manning is better than Brady. Brady had a better career.
    ——
    2015 P. Manning 9 TD 17 INT 7-2 record
    2019 Tom Brady 24TD 8 INT 12-4 record

    You can’t even compare the ends of their careers. Peyton was clearly done. Brady clearly isn’t.

  34. “Nine one-and-dones say otherwise”

    I think Brady is better than Manning, but the above is a team stat, in a team game.

    How many times did Brady have to go up against schemes as good as what BB was able to devise for Manning?

    Brady wouldn’t have had 6 rings playing for the teams and 5 different coaches that Manning went through. Nor would BB have just 1-2 rings if Manning had been his QB instead of Brady.

  35. Anyone who thinks Manning was better then Brady is not living in reality.

    Brady has done more with far less.

    Every year Belichick hamstrings Brady with nobody WRs. The only exceptions to this was a ‘end of the road’ Moss and a the Great TE – Gronk.

  36. “Did these people exist to the “Manning carried the team” sayers?

    That’s actually a pretty lean list for so many years of playing & so many teams. And Dungy was the ONLY really good coach that he had throughout his career.

    Enough of the Manning didn’t have a Defense crap!

    Freeny, Mathis, Gary Brackett, Marlon Jackson, Bob Sanders, Antoine Bethea, Kelvin Hayden…just to name a few.

    Let’s not forget the Denver D.

    Rodgers Defense

    Clay Matthews, Charles Woodsen, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Tremon Williams. AJ Hawk, Mike Daniels, Sam Shields.

    – Great coach – Tony Dungy for Manning and Mike Holmgrem and Mike McCarthy were pretty good coaches
    – Great defenses – Listed above
    – Timely turnovers – What a stupid arguement!
    – Weak division gets home field, never made SB without bye – Yes, because the Jags, Titans, and Texans were murders row. Also, Lions, Vikings and Bears were fantastic! NOT!!
    – Adam V. – Um…OK, he had a pro bowl kicker. Pretty sure Manning and Adam V as well and Mason Crosby in GB was pretty good
    – Tuck rule – Really? Stupid!
    – Gillette Stadium – Indoor with pumped up sound and heat / LAMBEAU!!
    – 6th rounder, no pressure – Another stupid point
    – Serious YAC, king of short passes, players run to first downs way more than average – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    – Ref calls – Yes, because Indy and GB have never…ever had calls go their way. It’s been debunked many times the about penalties and NE advantage
    – Drew Bledsoe injury – Um…what?
    – Deflated footballs – Inlfated footballs? Seriously, you sound like a fool.
    – Spygate – Yawn, andother lame comment
    – Pete Carroll – What????
    – Atlanta coaches – Hahahah!!

  38. How many times did Brady have to go up against schemes as good as what BB was able to devise for Manning?
    ————–

    Manning had trouble against all good defenses in playoff.

    Belichick is great at taking away best weapons, NEVER GREAT when opponent offense was great and versatile.

    Manning had no trouble against Belichick’s defense when he started throwing to WR other Harrison and Wayne.

    I wonder what team the Boston fans will root for when Brady is gone.

    You mean the same fans that sold out EVERY game 7 years before Brady was a Patriot?

  40. “Belichick is great at taking away best weapons, NEVER GREAT when opponent offense was great and versatile.”

    You mean like the “greatest show on turf?” He schemed pretty well against that team.

    BB has shut down all kinds of great offenses over the years. He’s amazing.

  41. I’ve been an “uncomfortable” Pats fan this year. Even when they were 8-0, I figured the league would catch up with them. I’ve been a fan since their creation in 1960, suffered through mostly 40 years when the team was nothing more than a joke, and then celebrated for 19 years. They may beat the Titans tomorrow night but I don’t see them beating both the Chiefs and Ravens in their stadiums so no SB this year. That’s OK, can’t be greedy but I’m not looking forward to the off-season, the draft, and next season.

    The Pats have no replacement for Brady. It would be sacrilege to see him in a different uniform next year so I just hope the Pats re-sign him for another year and start searching for his replacement. I believe they’re going to be looking for a replacement for Josh McDaniels also. Would it be out of the question to think Belichick sees the handwriting on the wall and decides to leave for Dallas?

  43. Guess you missed the whole “team” thing.

    ————————-
    You don’t know what TEAM means.

    Brady is the GOAT because football is a team sport. Who else can consistently turn average WR into playmakers? who else can turn short n slow WR into playmakers? Who can score 41 and 31 pts in playoff without deep threats? who else can stay on field for 36 min and 39 min so to help his defense? who can get rid of the balls so quickly that makes opponent pass rush completely irrelevant so to help his O-line? ONLY Brady.

  44. Brady had the benefit of having a great head coach who surrounded him with competent assistant coaches and a good roster. That’s why he isn’t Dan Marino or Aaron Rodgers who had some postseason success but not dynasty type success. But so did Montana and so did Manning to some extent also, nobody can be that successful with average (Mike McCarthy, George Seifert) or bad coaching, nobody. That isn’t a knock on Brady though, who has been a model of consistency and preparation and has made huge plays throughout his career in the regular season and in the playoffs. Manning with Belicheck does not win 6 Super Bowls (but Rodgers and Montana might).

  45. It is really funny that people use the AFC ease narrative in a vain attempt to dismiss the Pats record. Look it up, their record against the AFC east vs. the rest of the NFL is very close, the last one I looked up the record was >0.700 for each.

    As far as benefitting from a good coach, yup that is true but wasn’t Montana coached by a good (HOF)coach? Throw in the benefit of no salary cap, continuity of personnel, a HOF receiver, and HOF players on defense.

    As far as the haters go this part is for you. As a child I hated the Cowboys, Steelers, Dolphins, Yankees, Canadiens, Flyers, Lakers, Knicks etc… Obviously you can see the trend. I’m a Boston fan. The Pats sucked so included in that list are successful teams of that era in football and not necessarily a rivalry like some other teams on the list. However, as an adult I realized the error of my ways, you really should not hate a team because it does a disservice to the players. It was actually the Sox Yankees rivalry that changed my perspective. How can you hate Jeter, and Rivera? Talented beyond description and both have Brady similarities, worked their butts off to stay healthy for a long career, kept quiet, did their job. How can you hate Magic Johnson, or Terry Bradshaw, Dan Marino etc…It is sad that too many individuals refuse to give credit where credit is due, they will grasp at any article that supports their warped un founded hatred. Many years ago there was a list of the most liked and hated teams of that era, on both lists there were three teams, The Celtics, the Yankees and Notre Dame. The simple reason, their success the petty jealousness of it all is obvious.

    As a Pats fan for life I endured the laughingstock that they were and am very aware that their time is coming to an end. To all that will listen, enjoy it, admire it, and give credit where credit is due because you are going to miss it.

    Rodgers couldn’t score even 380 points with Jimmy Graham and Davante Adams.

    380 points, that is how many points Brady produced with slot receivers like Troy Brown, Deion Branch, Reche Caldwell.

    So please don’t put Rodgers and Brady in the same sentence.

  47. Peyton Manning had a 9-10 playoff record in Indy. (5-3 in Denver.) 14-13 overall playoff record.

    Tom Brady has a 30-10 post season record.

    It’s been a great career. After this Saturday’s loss to the Titans it will be time for Brandy to retire. He is a shell of his former self. He is simply too old to continue to play.
    ———————-

    “shell of his former self”- Jeez, that remains to be seen. He’s had about the same year as A. Rodgers has had- no one says he’s done. For the first time Brady has no Tight Ends- zero. Also, Rodgers didn’t have 2 receivers come and go- Gordon, AB, two receivers come mid or late Mid season and one of those a Rookie- Sanu, Harry and have a turnstile O- Line.
    Can’t judge if he’s done with those factors.

    Even with all of that, he had them set for the #2 Seed, and gave the Pats a 4 point lead with 3 minutes or so in the 4th. Add to that BB no time out decision at the end of the first half, and the ridiculous not using time outs at the end of the game where they would have had 1:30 left to score vs. 23 seconds.

    Win or lose tomorrow, he has given this team and fans all he’s got over the years, and I for one hope to see him back next year because they won’t be better without him- that’s for sure!

  49. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say they might go shopping in FA for one of the QB’s that’ll be out there.

    Feel free to laugh but I could see them “taking a flyer” on Mariota/Tannehill, whichever doesn’t go back to Tenn.
    Bridgewater might get a phone call if NO can’t tie him up to be a successor.

  50. Well he won’t add to his alltime total TD passes or yards because in the stat book, someone decided that playoff games should be included in “career passing statistics”. Apparently this kind of success against the best teams in the league every year shouldn’t count so that others can lead in the stat book.

  51. BB has shut down all kinds of great offenses over the years. He’s amazing.

    ————————–

    Against Bills in SB in 1992, offense played 39 minutes and his defense allowed around 20 points.

    Against Rams, Mark Katz kept giving Kurt Warner the balls, not Marshall Faulk, otherwise Pats would have had no chance.

    Manning? all the good defenses shut him down, not just Belichick.

    What else? allowed 31 points against Chiefs in second half, or you mean the defense against the Rams with injured Gouley and without Kupp?

    BTW, compared to those all time great defense (they all had #1 or #2 on total yards allowed), Pats never had a defense under belichick that could shut down elite and VERSATILE offense.

    No team has more championships with asterisks than this one.

    No I think the Steelers have a few more

  54. Divide his career in half and see where they end up.
    Shockingly high on the “records” lists…. particularly the postseason accomplishments……..

    If that were only true, like when you said a couple of weeks ago YOUR Bills would beat them.

    Oh wait, that was WRONG too. My bad!

  56. None of these stats matters when you cheat to achieve them. Case closed.

  57. Some of these playoff records will be unbreakable. Like Joe DiMaggio 56 game hit streak or Wayne Gretzky 2,857 career points.Arrive as king Leave the Game as a legend.

  58. I find it amusing that credit for the success of the Pats goes to only Brady or Belichick and everyone is unwilling to say both are due pretty much equal credit. Neither one of them would have been as successful without the other. Brady came along as a malleable talent that Belichick was able to mold and use to get the ball rolling. Through subsequent years it was Brady more than Belichick and now it swung back the other way and the coach probably has more to do with winning than the QB. Do the math people, look at the way they have won and give credit to both of these guys. Enjoy it because one without the other, I don’t think either one will have the same level of success moving forward.

    You mean like how we cheated the Falcons out of winning the SuperBowl a few years ago with that monstrous second half comeback? You’re funny.

  60. Well he won’t add to his alltime total TD passes or yards because in the stat book, someone decided that playoff games should be included in “career passing statistics”. Apparently this kind of success against the best teams in the league every year shouldn’t count so that others can lead in the stat book.

    Manning is better than Brady. Brady had a better career.

    ————-

    Having a better career means you are better to me. The goal is to move the ball, score points and win games. Nobody did it better and for longer than Brady. Other players were better than Brady in certain games, or for certain stretches of time, or they looked better, but nobody had better results. Since it is a team game, Brady’s contribution is arguable as opposed to a sport like golf or boxing. However, given Brady is the only player in the NFL with 6 Super Bowl titles out of the 25,000 or so players that have come along, I think it has a great deal to do with him.

  62. Everyone that disses Brady needs to look in the mirror and ask themselves this question: What’s wrong with me?

    Then they start talking about playoff records like they are a stand alone thing. Eli with his 8-4 playoff record. Missing the playoff every year instead of taking playoff losses is not a good thing. They could also give Brady another 13 playoff wins for all his playoff byes which he earned.

    These comments are a mess. Can’t Brady and Manning both be great?

    ————–

    They are both great. Peyton’s greatest feat really should be that he is the only QB to win a Super Bowl with 2 teams. That’s pretty incredible. Not even a coach has done it. Irsay kind of screwed Peyton and in turn, screwed the Colts. If he had traded the Luck pick, loaded up on defense and invested in Peyton for 4 more years it would have been far better for them. Heck, they could have got Russel Wilson in the 3rd round.

    I’ve been an “uncomfortable” Pats fan this year. Even when they were 8-0, I figured the league would catch up with them. I’ve been a fan since their creation in 1960, suffered through mostly 40 years when the team was nothing more than a joke, and then celebrated for 19 years. They may beat the Titans tomorrow night but I don’t see them beating both the Chiefs and Ravens in their stadiums so no SB this year. That’s OK, can’t be greedy but I’m not looking forward to the off-season, the draft, and next season.

    The Pats have no replacement for Brady. It would be sacrilege to see him in a different uniform next year so I just hope the Pats re-sign him for another year and start searching for his replacement. I believe they’re going to be looking for a replacement for Josh McDaniels also. Would it be out of the question to think Belichick sees the handwriting on the wall and decides to leave for Dallas?

    ———————

    Did anyone think Jimmy G would be a viable replacement before he actually started a game? Nope. I think the Patriots likely believe Stidham is the next guy up and they will keep drafting QBs as needed.

  67. He ain’t the GOAT, Belichick is the GOAT. Brady is great but he’s mostly been along for the ride. Manning would have 10 SBs with Belichick.

  68. Funny the argument that Brady did more with less than Manning especially when accompanied by the line “BB is greatest coach of all time”. Keep in mind that Manning had two great defenses and won SB’s each time. Brady had what, nine of them and won six. Regardless, Brady is a great QB but the decline this year has been precipitous and alarming. Is it the end, probably not, but is he still elite…not hardly. Better than average, yes.

    To extend your analogy, did anyone think some kid named Tom Brady would be a viable replacement for Drew Bledsoe before he started a game?

    Heck, Ron Borges probably still does not think that kid named Tom Brady is a viable replacement for Bledsoe. 🙂

    For the folks who trot out the lame excuse of “oh they have played in a very weak division, that’s why they get home field in the playoffs” go ahead and look back over the last 19 years and you’ll see the Patriots have been consistently beating everybody. They’re averaging almost 8 wins a season OUTSIDE of the AFC East. Even if they played in a “tough” division and went .500, they’d still be consistently winning 12 games and getting a first round bye most years anyways.
    _____________________________________________________________________

    Beating everybody, I agree. But when you have formidable teams in your division, you will get beat by these teams, at times, no matter what the records are:

    Ravens – Steelers
    Cowboys – Redskins
    Oakland – Denver
    Giants – Eagles
    Saints – Falcons
    Patriots – ????

    Every little edge counts, plus the cheating garners one or two extra wins to secure a much needed week of rest. We all know Patriots have never won the SB without a bye week in the playoffs. This year included.

    ______________

    No. Tom Brady with the offensive weapons that Manning had would have had 10 super bowls.

  73. Really impressive!He did all that with less PSI’s than most QB’s. It is something to be commended. #deflategate.

  74. Fair but Brady also has the only coach in history with 6 Super Bowl titles.
    —————————————–

    When you saw Pats slot receivers were wide open, did it ever occur to you that it was because Brady who threw the balls at the earliest possible time?

    Tell me how Belichick played a role in this.

  75. “No. Tom Brady with the offensive weapons that Manning had would have had 10 super bowls.”

    How about this: how about we give Brady all of the offensive weapons Manning had, but take away Belichick and replace him with, say, Caldwell.

    How many super bowls would he have then?

  76. How about this: how about we give Brady all of the offensive weapons Manning had, but take away Belichick and replace him with, say, Caldwell.

    ——————————

    Brady was already able to score 380 points between 2001 and 2006 with the pathetic squad Belichick gave to him.

    So why are you surprised that he was able to produce top 5 offense with better weapons and rule changes?

    Peyton with Belichick? don’t you see how cheap Belichick is on offense? Belichick would be fired within 2 seasons.

  77. Funny how Tony Dungy always gets dogged on these boards. But all of a sudden when you want to say Brady is better than Manning, now Manning benefits from a great coach as well. Really, guys?

  78. Really impressive!He did all that with less PSI’s than most QB’s. It is something to be commended.

    ===

    Most likely, balls for the opposing team reacted the same way as Brady,s, proportionately so.

    Your IQ is not to be commended.

  79. Manning would probably have zero Super Bowls with Belichick. The pairing would not work at all.

    Except that BB is only 18-19 as Pats coach without Brady starting. And 33 of those 37 games were started by a QBs who has gone to a ProBowl. Some “ride”.

    Brady and Belichick are great together. Together they are the “system”. With the Patriots it’s not either-or.
