The line is garbage right now, and they are struggling to run the ball. Brady was more than fine. When he is given even a little bit of time he’s still very, very good. The throws to Dorsett and Watson today were elite. And the first TD throw to Edelman was unreal considering he was going to Sanu on that play who fell down and quickly found Jules in a tight window.
Yep---Romo said that play is in INT for most QBs.

Sanu likely only had a few plays for him today, give him another week and we'll be fine. Michel looking better as well, when there are holes, he's hitting them.

Watching Aaron Rodgers and his struggles vs KC blitzes, very clear that if you can’t rely on your O line it’s very difficult to get in a good rhythm. Plus poor kicking as was mentioned up thread. And a couple of key drops too. Anyway 33-13 would have been much better.

Edit: was going to make the point about missed FGs leading to better field position for the Browns than after a FG and then kick off, but then looked it up - not true (16 and 24 yard line).

On that note though, I assume #36, #48 and #95 are players who aren't on the roster anymore/weren't ever on it? Must have been that they designed this shirt immediately after Hightower's nickname was first used to describe the LBs, since it now has grown to include the entire D.

KIng, Munson and Rivers, respectively. Two on IR and one on PS

Van Noy tweeted a request for fans to design a shirt with the nickname and included all the players that should be on it.

Cassel made a great point, I thought, on this week's podcast with regard to Brady playing for another team. He put the odds very, very low - 1% or less - but said that the only scenario in which he could see Brady playing for another team is if Josh was taking a head coaching job somewhere and Brady went with him. I'd put the odds even lower than that, but I think it's a fair point.

He'd also probably bring Edelman (let's face it, if Brady moves on the Pats would probably be smart to move on from Edelman).

Great article here that I saw on Miguel's timeline. It really goes into the details of the cap impacts of the latest Brady restructure and what it means for future years. It also is the most in-depth dive I've seen on the details of how the 1-year restructure prohibition works. It also has some really interesting stuff about how the cap works generally and how these self-voiding contracts work.

I don't think Brady would have of insisted on the auto void clause if he wasn't seriously thinking about leaving (or retiring).

The above posted article describes a very similar situation with Brees a year or two ago. The auto void gives the player salary cap leverage to use against the team.

I would think retiring wouldn't make a difference one way or another. If he's only going to be around one year, he probably doesn't want to play under the Franchise tag. I assume this is primarily what the void was for.

If he's going to be year to year the franchise tag isn't so bad.

I was thinking that perhaps it was to ensure he wouldn't have to (in theory) have to give prorated $$$ back from the bonus if he retired, although it appears that it was a roster bonus. So I dunno.

For a guy who joined the social media platforms late, Brady and his team do a pretty good job at it. Oh, he’s also a great big dork but we already knew that. You need to click into the Sportscenter one to see the comment.

Dan Graziano thinks Brady's post-playing life direction could well be NFL ownership:

Peyton Manning isn't exactly setting up a retirement blueprint for all-time great quarterbacks. "Insurance pitchman and ESPN+ football programming front man" isn't an avenue that's going to be open to just everyone. But it's interesting to imagine Brady, Brees, Rivers and Roethlisberger in their post-football lives.

The broadcast networks would probably write each one of them a blank check, and I can imagine any of them but Brady behind the microphone. (And who knows, maybe he'd surprise me.) But the trick is, you'd have to find a way to make it worth their while. The four of them together have earned a little less than a billion dollars in their careers from just their football salaries and bonuses -- which is to say nothing of their off-field endorsement income. They won't need jobs, and they're not going to sign up to do the No. 4 game in the weekly CBS rotation. You'd have to be talking about a Troy Aikman/Tony Romo-level type of job to entice these guys, and ... well, those jobs are of course taken.

When I covered the Yankees, Derek Jeter used to tell us he wasn't interested in getting into coaching or broadcasting when he was done playing but that he wanted to own a team. That is the path he took. And while it hasn't gone particularly well for him, it leaves open the possibility of other athletes who've made their fortunes going down similar paths. Could Brady and his much richer wife, Gisele Bundchen, end up with enough to buy a majority interest in an NFL team? Would they want to?

I’m mobile so maybe I am missing something here but Tom Brady is #25 on the list of NFL greatest game changers?

View: https://twitter.com/patriots/status/1190675374805585921?s=21
At first look, something seemed off, but it looks to be a list of people and things that changed the game. For instance, AstroTurf is on the list. As great as Brady is, he hasn't revolutionized the sport so much as excelled at it.

Belichick is #11 which makes sense.

A man Belichick admired as much as, or I don’t know, most? of all was #1. Spoiler for those who want the suspense.

yeah definitely the right choice for #1. Walsh likely #2 behind him? Nope, #4. The list is here. #3 will surprise you!

Joe Namath at #7 seems like a bit of an over-rank, but he's definitely top 20 on this list.

From watching other top whatever shows on NFLN, they love #3. I was surprised at #2. I thought #1 might have been deemed too far back in time, but, reviewing the entire list, they did a good job of not being too “recent heavy.”

That list is awful right away. If it's genuinely things that changed the NFL as a whole, the apple commercial either needs to be top 20ish or not on it at all.
I'd nominate this for most pointless list ever. Brady is actually on it twice as the Mo Lewis hit is on there as well (and above Aaron Rodgers, lol)

Tony Dungy being essentially equal with Peyton Manning? Oh boy.

George RR Martin wrote Brady's blurb. I don't know why but that makes me laugh. What happens first, Brady retires or Martin comes out with another book?

Trick question. Martin is never writing another book.

That’s amazing. I hope he starts writing for baseball cards, traffic citations, Instagram blurbs and everything else under the sun just to mess with people.

#2 was right, I think. Arguably you should swap #2 and #1, because without one of them the league is a lot smaller and probably beset by competition on all sides. #16 (fantasy football) should probably be way higher, too.

Imagine if his fans found out he had like 75,000 posts on a Giants message board somewhere?

Lost in yesterday's loss was a 74th TD receiver for Brady. Ended at 71 last year; added Antonio Brown vs. MIA, Ryan Izzo vs WAS, and Mohamed Sanu Sr yesterday.
Chance of adding a few more as well.

Michel doesn't have one. Meyers doesn't have one. Obviously Harry doesn't. And the long shot of Gunner getting one too.
