He’s Brady-licious (he’s hot hot!)

From the NY Times: “Brady’s steady hand points the way again

Take away the receivers, take away the coordinators, take away the home-field advantage, and the New England Patriots are still left with Tom Brady at quarterback.

In January, he is all they seem to need.
After throwing three interceptions and a series of ankle-level incompletes, Tom Brady seemed to flip a switch in the fourth quarter. Talk about grace under pressure: he promptly marched down the field twice to score eleven unanswered points. IMHO, the AFC championship game is going to be the proxy Super Bowl with Payton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts playing at home against the Patriots.

I hate to disagree with you, but you have it exactly wrong. It's not Brady, it's the team as a unit. Troy Brown, Reche Caldwell, Vince Wilfork, Mike Vrable, Tedy Bruschi, and on and on. Don't forget Gostkowski a rookie kicker that was clutch.

This game belongs to the defense as much as the offense, if not more.

It's a team and a system that wins, not any individual.

Yeah, you have a point. As long as I live, I'll never forget the "Meet the Press" the morning of the Pats first Superbowl against the HEAVILY favored St. Louis Rams. The head of NFL Films was asked if the Patriots had a chance: he said "no."

That game the Patriots avoided the individual roll call in favor of being introduced "as a team." Corny, yes, but they won.
