I don't know why I can't get the youtube to show up in the post but here is the link
Brady Just Heaving the Ball
the reel starts off with brady throwing into almost triple coverage.
nice video. but, it doesnt account for the Incompletions where he's heaved it up as well
I just wanted to answer Stopplayn who seemed to think Brady never threw into coverage and had the receiver make a play on the ball. He did it all the time but he had one of footballs greatest receivers at going up and getting a ball playing with him. Ben has never had a receiver who goes up in the air and takes it away from the defender. I did notice he never made a comment on the video.
Yeah. That assertion was a little rediculous
I never said he NEVER throws into coverage. Brady is a good deep passer and Ben is NOT. That was my point. You made it seem as if he threw passes up for grabs like Ben did with Wallace and you failed. Sorry.
The play you refrenced was a play action pass where he had to get the ball off (See that the ball was released right as he was hit and that effected the travel of the ball. In fact thats what made the ball underthrown and appear to be a tossup. But lets say it was a 'toss up". Isnt it smart to TOSS UP a pass to the 6'4 Moss over the little DBs? Mike Wallace isnt tall at all. Bens pass was NOT a good pass. The beauty of the play was the ability of Mike Wallace to catch the pass.
