With some of the wild comebacks this year, I'd keep Brady in too.

Sour grapes. Brady usually never comes out. That's what makes "us" so good!

Some post game stats on the Patriots impressive 42-7 victory tonight.

On another thread- Double H quote: "There is a reason Tom Brady is rated in the top 25 of the top 100 NFL players in its history, the poll being conducted by a group of panelists on the NFL Channel."

Stats: Tom Brady- 26 completions out of 34 attempts for 363 yards and 6 touchdown passes

On another thread- "Double H quote: Rob Gronkowski is a freak of nature."

Fact-10 catches for 145 yards.

509 yards total offense for New England.

Needless to say, an impressive performance by the New England Patriots.

Tom Brady made a statement, quite the show last night! I thought it might be closer at the start but Pats really came out swinging, impressive indeed.

You're absolutely right. This is why the Pats decided to score 35 points in the first half just to be safe. Brilliant.

Oh boy, Giants up 10-3 on the Pack. The most excitement this weekend since the 9er game.

Beat the Ratbirds... but make it a close and exciting game if you can, k?

The O-line of the Pats, who have been very good this year, will have a challenge with the Ravens. Brady and Co. will have to get up on them quickly, cause I don't believe the Ravens have the firepower to stage a comeback in that game. Keep Ray Rice in check, score quick and play fast to try to tire that Raven D out if possible. GO PATS!!!!!!

Giving credit where credit is due here.

I've said this before several times on the fb forum and will say it here. As long as Bill Belichick is coaching and Tom Brady is quarterbacking the Patriots are never out of a game, much less in the running for division championships, etc.

One number stands out here-137.6. That was Tom Brady's quarterback rating as he had 26 completions out of 34 throws for 363 yards. I think what really amps the rating stats up is the 6 touchdown passes. Right off the get go Brady's throws were like laser shots. I remember the bad pick that he threw when they got up 14-zip. It didn't slow him down one iota. And New England's offensive line served as a fortress as Brady was not sacked at all during the game. New England's 146 yards rushing looks kind of deceiving on paper, but where the Broncos got schooled was Aaron Hernandez 43 yard run.

Here is another stat that speaks volumes here. The Pats were 3 out of 6 in third down conversions. Now think about that stat for a second. They were only put in the position to be in third down in 6 situations. That's how prolific that offense was! Moving the ball effortlessly? Yea, pretty much so!

Denver got outplayed and outcoached. Simple as that. Congrats to New England!
