Tom Brady was back to his old self Sunday as he led the Patriots to a 30-27 win over the Saints for his 28th career fourth quarter comeback victory.
With Brady’s latest game-winning drive, and Peyton Manning’s MVP-like season thus far, the long-time debate continued of who is the better quarterback on PostGame Live with Michael Felger, Troy Brown and Mike Flynn.
“I have always been a Tom Brady guy over Peyton Manning,” Felger said. “It goes back to, not even what they’ve done with in terms of working with less and all that, it’s in big games. In big games, Peyton Manning has just been far more prone to that big mistake in a big game than Tom Brady.”
However, Flynn thinks there is a small margin between the two quarterbacks.
“I’m a Brady guy, I think he is a great quarterback, I’m not denying that, he’s the guy I would pick,” Flynn said. “Before you start, look at the offense and the contexts of those wins and everything like that. Peyton was the team. He did a lot with that Colts team. Those weren’t great football teams.”
So, who do you think is the better quarterback? Let us know in the comments section.
At this point, there may be no getting out of it.
Roger Goodell chose to visit Atlanta twice in as many weeks during its run to a Super Bowl, and in the process he opted not to check in at Gillette Stadium for either the Divisional Round or the AFC title game. But once the Patriots won Super Bowl LI, many felt as though Goodell would simply have no choice but to attend the 2017 regular-season opener in Foxboro.
There are those who are itching to have him visit. There are those who hope he stays away. In an interview with ESPN, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski didn't put himself in either camp, but he seemed to suggest that it might not be the best idea for the commissioner to show his face in New England.
"To tell you the truth, I really don’t think so," Gronkowski said when asked if Goodell could come back to Foxboro any time soon. "The fans are nuts, they’re wild, and they have the Patriots’ back no matter what. They have Tom’s back. I’m telling you, he won’t get through the highway if the fans saw him. I don’t even think he can even land in the airport in Boston because Patriot fans are the best fans, they’re the most loyal fans. I’m telling you, they might just carry out Roger themselves. They couldn’t even get to the stadium in Foxboro if he landed in Boston."
Goodell hasn't been to Gillette Stadium since Deflategate, but he said during Super Bowl week that he'd be happy to visit if he was invited.
Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.
Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body.
Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.
Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.
Next season, Russian Roulette.
