The Billy Beane Theory of Chaos is at play in the NFL nowadays, helping explain a lot of the ugly we have seen so far this season.
Because whatever your particular NFL problem -- Chiefs, Norv, Sanchez or Cowboys -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady almost assuredly has a hand in that blame. He has ruined NFL franchises. He has sold them hope, then watched as that fledgling spirit dies violently.
He has done this quite unintentionally, by being good, by being so good that NFL franchises were confused into thinking that it was the guys around him, not actually him, winning all of those games in New England.
The Billy Beane Theory of Chaos is based on this belief, very en vogue among my sportswriting peers at the moment, that for every amazing team or player, there has to be genius behind the genius. It had some merit with regard to Moneyball, Beane and MLB's Oakland As. It has none with Brady.
What we have running amok in the NFL and its feeder system is a bunch of Brady Mommas, ...
BEST OF MAXIM
New England QB Tom Brady threw a season-high two interceptions and turned in his lowest QB rating of the year Sunday in a one-point loss to the Seahawks.Fantasy Spin:Despite the uneven performance, Brady still managed to throw for 300 yards passing, the fourth time he's been able to accomplish that in his last five starts.

The line went viral following Seattles stunning comeback against New England on Sunday. “U Mad Bro?”Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had words for Tom Brady following the game. Brady was asked about the incident and responded according to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal.“(Sherman’s) a very good player, and I have a lot of respect for that defense and certainly that secondary...

Three games, three losses by 4 points, and a whole lot of mistakes at crucial times. This doesn't sound like New England Patriots football, but it's been the case so far this season. The introduction of the running game was supposed to help ground out tough yards to secure victories, but you have to use it to get it’s benefits. Well within field goal range near the end...
Welcome back Rex. And welcome backs Rex's mouth. They both predict victory over the Patriots. The Bills hope to the Titans at home.
There are many reasons not to like Tom Brady, so many that I don’t feel like writing the novel on it.He’s a competitive guy and that showed against the Seattle Seahawks as he was obviously frustrated at times cursing himself after he threw his two interceptions on the day.The Seahawks wanted to make sure they rubbed it in a little after the game on Sunday when cornerback Richard...
The Patriots lead the Seahawks 17-10 at halftime in Seattle. But New England left points on the board in the first half. An intentional grounding by Tom Brady with 1 second left in the half led to a 10-second run off, which ended the quarter. The Pats could've extended the lead to 20-10 with a Stephen Gostkowski field goal attempt.Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker each have touchdown...
Andrew Luck, RGIII, Ryan Tannehill: All of these 1st round QB's were the talk of the league coming into this 2012 season. Surely, it would be one of these 3 young guns to win the Rookie of the Year award. But then came Russell Wilson, the rookie sensation in Seattle!
Wilson, who was known in college for his great mobility and pocket presense, has showed off his laser rocket...
The New England Patriots blew a 13-point fourth quarter lead to lose 24-23 at the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice for a 46-yard touchdown with 1:27 left to tie the game at 23. Steven Hauschka's extra point gave Seattle the lead, and after Tom Brady and the Patriots were stopped short on fourth down, the final margin was secure. New England falls to 3-3, while...
This picture should make the Patriots sick.
"Me and (safety Earl Thomas) walked up to him and said, 'We're greater than you. We're better than you. You're just a man -- we're a team,'" [Richard] Sherman told the News Tribune. "That's the Brady Bunch; this is a defense. We've got 11 players out there to play great ball, and we'...
Tom Brady has been doing more managing than throwing in 2012The term “game manager” has always been a sore subject in football circles. Normally, it has been reserved for okay quarterbacks on teams filled with talented players at every other positions who have one job and that job is to not make a major mistake. The ultimate game manager was Baltimore Ravens quarterback Trent...
