I was watching the Colts broncos game and the Broncos had guys WIDE open Down the field and in the middle of the field all day. Peyton just was missing them or didn't see them.

I'm almost at a draw with Green Bay at Seattle. Even though Rodgers played a gritty and great game while being hobbled, even with a decent Dallas defense Seattle's is much better. I expect them to be at Rodgers doorstep a lot more than Dallas was to take advantage of his injury. That, coupled with home field, I will give a slight edge to Seattle here.
if pats come to play, not be complacent on either side of the ball, they can beat any team,
brady, like the other qb's can put a lot of scoring up in a short amount of time

they said in the ravens game his pass releases were just 2-3 seconds for the 7-12 yard passes
this can neutralize a great defense if brady is on his game


I think brady is on a mission this year,,,one of his last opportunities for another ring and he is hungry for it
he needs to be fired up to inspire the rest of the team

For the GB-Sea game, much of the talk has focused on how Rodgers will respond against the Seahawk defense....I think the bigger subplot is the Seahawk offense vs the GB defense....In the first matchup, the Seahawks rushed for 207 yards. People will respond "that was so long ago, not relevant"....ok, fine....Dallas gashed the GB defense on the ground. Does GB have any answer for a team with a good ground game?

It has been an issue, they have improved in that area, but not enough maybe.

I agree with Brady being on a mission, and his team backing him up this year (and healthy *knocks wood*). Of the 4 QB's left, Brady is the closest to this being his "last chance". He's played with a chip on his shoulder ever since coming into the league at 199, as opposed to Manning coming in the announced king as the #1 pick.

The Pats/Brady haters I believe exist just because they are tired of the winning and Brady's super model wife. For whatever reason, they think he needs #4 before Brady and the Pats are considered something more than they already are. I really hope they do it this year.

I try to ignore all the internet chatter! It is amazing, how fast time goes by. Aaron sat behind Favre 3 years started playing in 2008 and has 1 SB. Hard to believe going on 10 years in the league. He will play 7 or 8 more probably but definitely wants more rings. He and Tom are friends, Cali boys, Rodgers with Olivia Munn, I think Tom is the one he relates to the most. I want to be positive but this may not be the year they get to the SB, Seahawks are tough.

As a Pats fan I want Tom to get #4, but they have to get past Luck first.

Problem is, of the four teams left, the Seahawks are best built to win. They have a stifling defense (past 7 games average of 8 points per game given up). With Lynch and Wilson, they can run the ball and chew up clock. For Rodgers sake I wish he wasn't dealing with the calf, because that just may be the difference.

His last chance will be the 2017 (2016 would be perfect actually if Garapalo can come on fast) season with Buffalo when he is playing under Rex Ryan. Belicheck will trade him for the Bills first round pick.

That honestly made me laugh. I'm not saying it isn't feasible, but at this time I'm not ready to introduce that possibility.

I remember when Ray Bourque was traded to the Colorado Rockies from the Boston Bruins. That trade was done to give Bourque the best chance (and last) to win the Stanley Cup as the Bruins just weren't there. As history shows Bourque got his championship.

At this stage of Brady's career, regardless of him wanting to play into his 40's, there is really nothing to accomplish per se. He has his rings and his legacy. But, being that he's always played with that chip on his shoulder, and his true love for the game of football, that makes your laughable comment possible - especially knowing how the Patriots operate with personnel.

But time will tell that story. Many of the greats have changed teams - Montana, Manning.....so nothing is out of the question. Right now, though, all I care about is Sunday night and the Patriots getting past the hot Colts and Luck. I expect this game to be much closer than the past 3 blowouts. I would venture a guess the winner will win by either 3 or 7. But of course I'll take another Patriots blowout.
