    Sorry. I Love Ben, but, Tom Brady is a "MAN"...as where Ben is a "Boy". And so far, and I HOPE Monday night looks better cause, like it or not, preseason DOES tell the tale people. The outcome is not Important. But the cohesiveness of the first team offense is.
    Not that you're at ALL prone to exaggeration, but here are Brady's preseason numbers so far through 2 games:

    18-20 for 172 yards and 2 TD's

    Brady's a great QB, no doubt, but he doesn't need you padding his stats for him.

    Your schtick is getting stale and you're as transparent as Saran Wrap.

    So you are not Impressed by Brady, and the Pats ? I'd like to see Ben go 11-11 like Tom did last night against a 1st team defense. Especially when Ben has alot of skill players he has played with for years. As where Brady doesn't have a single one.

    Completely different QB's. Drop the Mel Blount rule for a couple of seasons and Brady, Brees, P.Manning, etc would all be completing 50% of their passes while Ben would be thriving. Ben's a throwback to when QB's were men, not just some head coach's system QB.

    Not one QB in the league today or in the past would survive the beating from today's bigger, stronger, and faster defensive players if they had to play under the rules of the 70's.

    Tom Brady and his success is one part his own skill and two parts the system. It's dink and dunk, with the occasional shot down field. He also has an eternity in the pocket with one of the better offensive lines in the NFL. The Steelers offensive line is just coming together. Danny Amendola when healthy is a better receiver than anyone they had on their roster last season. Outside of Randy Moss he's the best they've had in a while. He's Wes Welker, with more size and better routes. It's also the damn preseason. As others have said you're welcome is quickly wearing out. Each and every post you make is someone veiled in a load of bull. We had one that seemed to of fell of the face of the earth just like you not long ago. It's funny that another one crops up now. I'm all for posting opinions that go against the grain BUT they better be based in some sort of reality. As of now you seem like you're posting from the moon. Give it a rest.

    EDIT: Why do you think Bellicheat always seems to plug and play players in to that offense without slowing down? Tom Brady is good but Bill B. is the reason that team is in the thick of things year in and year out. I don't like the guy but that's the truth.

    If the 70s rules were in play, we would have signed Harrison for whatever he wanted. Heck there wouldn't be any QBs left in the league besides Ben. Although, I'm sure Ben would be dead from a hit by Ngata already.

    Gotta roll my eyes at how south this discussion went. Once September rolls around Brady's excellent preseason numbers will mean as much as the Bills 2-0 record.

My biggest concern with the OLINE is DEPTH. if someone goes down this unit is THIN.
    Ben has always been the biggest supporter of his Olinemen. No surprise that he is pumping them up again as always. "Who's laughing now OLine?"
