Is Tom Brady no longer a great playoff quarterback?
Wed, 9 Jan 2013|
Felger and Mazz look at Tom Brady's playoff stats, and debate whether or not he is still considered a great playoff quarterback.
What does Tom Brady been. Since his last championship is that very go over the track record to let's do this can. Tom Brady won his first ten playoff games pretty amazing. Ten and all incredible K you won his first nine that went to championship to -- when the wild card game in 0510. And all. Impeccable much like Mohammed Ali as exactly right. And Cassius Clay in -- and in as good as as good as it was -- play the game. But since then he has played twelve playoff games played twelve. And I think you make a case that he's had more bad when the good ones I don't know I don't even think effect close well let's look at it so look let's do this -- I'm gonna give each of the twelve playoff games and you tell me whether he was good bad or to toss up if it's debatable. All right good bad or mediocre good bad or we can debate whether it was good or bad good batter tossup that's what I want -- ready -- So after going -- at all his next playoff game was at Denver in the 05 divisional round. He completed 56% of his passes he threw one touchdown two interceptions. You give up that one pick in the end zone to Champ Bailey remember where Ben Watson chased him down the Patriots lost that game 27 to thirteen. Good -- toss up. -- heard him -- that bad bad. His next playoff -- 2006 home wild card game against the Jets is someone -- -- track and yes I am okay Greg peck. Johnson's against the Jets and that home playoff game and a 622 touchdowns no interceptions had a rating of 101 point six the pats won 3716. Good batter toss up. Good good good all of us. Game number three. At San Diego the 06 divisional round this was the game that you -- late interception to Marlon McCree and Troy Brown stripped the ball and got the ball back for the Patriots. Patriots won that game late 24 to 21 but Brady and that game. Was 27 of 51 the only completed 53% of his passes against the Chargers that day he threw three interceptions. Against two touchdowns. He made big plays late and they want plot was not a good game bad game or a toss up. I'm gonna say -- predictable late point in that game and it legitimate to crack -- receivers ongoing talks bad toss up. -- next game goes six AFC championship game at Indy you guys you to be more definitive. 06 -- after game at Indy one touchdown one interception had a rating of 79 point five as the game they lost 3834. Pats were up twenty to three at one time twenty to six -- half I believe. Offense put up 27 of those 34 point -- number seven points was scored on a pick six by Asante Samuel but this is again the pats lost 3834. Good -- toss up. I'm gonna say tossup not a tossup. -- wild card game the next you're 07 vs Jacksonville. Not hard to figure out 26 of 28 that's 93% complete three touchdowns no interceptions his rating was a 141 point four that day they won 31 to twenty. Excellent good the next game with the 07 AFC championship game. At home against San Diego again the Patriots won 21 to twelve however Brady that day threw three interceptions. At a quarterback rating of 66. This was the game that Laurence Maroney. Ran for a 120 yards killed in the second half Tom Brady three interceptions a 66 rating the 0782 -- -- good batter toss up bad. Bad toss up. Or you -- to we've 07 Super Bowl against the Giants you all know what happened do Tommy good batter toss up. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Play bad that date guys -- bat in his own right put poorly. 82 point five rating. 29 of 48. Sorry. I disagree every weekend to catch by. His next playoff game at that Super Bowl loss was the wild card game to Baltimore. Awful three interceptions -- 49 point one rating the pats lose 33 to fourteen. One of his two worst ever bad that bad and obviously is 2010 divisional game against the Jets at home. Two touchdowns one interception had a respectable rating of 89. Pats lose to 121 good batter toss up toss up. I figured I thought it was a game like in all I vote bat I believe the reason I -- out on that one toss -- -- But Denver 2011 championship game are divisional game laughter instant Tebow do you screens six touchdowns 137 rating good good good across the board. Last year's AFC title game against Baltimore. No touchdowns two interceptions. In 57 point five rating. He was 22 of 36 at 61% good bad or toss up the other the other one of those two -- star. That brutal that bad he sucked enactment that last year's bowl against the Giants also good batter toss up. -- -- -- Toss up toss up as well with me. Okay so as we tally up the last twelve playoff games to Tom Brady. I've got him. As three sure fire consensus. -- can't dispute and none of us did. Three good games. Of his last while there's no argument that three of whom were great up the other nine. Or they're bad or toss up and in my scorecard had three good five bad and four toss up. And I'll tell -- -- in the second but it's roughly the same we only had we can only agree all three of us. On three really good post season games since he started his career ten at all.
