This drab little note in Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column this week has provided considerable fodder for the likes of Felger of Mazz.
Opposing passers have produced more touchdowns than Tom Brady, 19-18.
This is just a weird sentence. “Produced more touchdowns?” What is the definition he’s using here? Solely passing TD’s?
If we’re going by strictly “passing” yes, opposing QB’s have thrown 19 TDs, and Tom Brady has thrown 18. Brady also has two rushing touchdowns this season, and Kevin Kolb in week two rushed for a touchdown against the Patriots.
It would seem logical that “produced” by the quarterback would also include TD’s scored personally by the quarterback. So when we get there, we’re at 20-20 on the season.
By using this stat, some (Felger and Mazz) have made the completely inexplicable leap to the conclusion that Brady has or is losing it, and the Patriots have lost the advantage they had of having Tom Brady as quarterback. They’re going by King’s 19-18 sta

Jared Mayo and the Patriots defense could not stop anyone Sunday against the Bills
Although the Patriots won at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, there was little to nothing positive to take from the game. Although Tom Brady managed the offense quite well, especially in the first half, the offense did not have the same type of rhythm that we saw in London two weeks ago. Although the offense...
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots sit comfortably atop the AFC East after edging the Buffalo Bills 37-31 in a Week 10 matchup between division rivals. And I just have to say that the Patriots seem determined to give Patriot Nation a collective aneurysm with games that shouldn't be as close as they are.New England had a golden opportunity to put the game out of reach twice...
Hot News for QB Tom Brady
The Patriots were the only AFC East team to win in Week 10. They further separated themselves from the pack and right into a prime playoff position while the Jets put got on the schedule of losers.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady still wonders why the New York Jets released running back Danny Woodhead. Brady took a small jab at the Jets during his weekly radio show with WEEI in Boston.
“I remember his first game,” Brady said via the New York Post. “We kind of joked on the sideline, [former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien] and I, we kind of...
The Patriots have been to both extremes of the high-low spectrum during the first nine-plus games of this season.
Tom Brady and the offense are once again the most dominant and potent attacks in the NFL, putting up outrageous numbers and consistently instilling fear in opposing defenses. But where the offense has excelled, the defense has struggled.
Vince Wilfork and Brandon Spikes...
A.B. Ever wonder what it’s like to be a Buffalo Bills fan? Just watch Grandpa here whose been sipping a little too much of his cough medicine. Apparently, the “upset of the century” by “Fritz” [Fitzpatrick] against Tom Brady who “has never lost in New England” didn’t pan out too well for him.
Oh wait, is that a veteran hat I see? Thanks for your service & Happy...
It isn’t enough for People Magazine to just decide who the sexiest man alive is. Now the publication has to decide the sexiest man from each state.
To spice things up for People’s 2012 issue of “Sexiest Man Alive”, the magazine chose one handsome fella to represent each of the 50 states.
Of course Tom Brady represents the great state of Michigan as their most strapping lad...
Guess what, Ladies?!! It’s that time of year again…
No, not holiday cups at Starbucks or the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I’m talking about the one time of year that you’ll catch me actually purchasing a magazine instead of reading the entire thing while pretending I’m in line at the checkout counter. People Magazine does it right with their annual ‘Sexiest Man Alive’...
Rob Gronkowski is going to have a big game against the Colts. Tom Brady will be throwing a lot and Gronkowski is going to get at least seven catches for at least 90 yards and a touchdown. Jimmy Graham is turning into one of the best tight ends in the league. He didn’t not do well in the middle of the season but he has picked it up and he is playing great just like last year. I...
It's time to update the NFL Positive Impact Factor through 10 weeks of the 2012 NFL season. Tom Brady has taken over the top spot this week from rookie QB RGIII (rookies are in bold on this list). There was also plenty of movement in the Top 10 this week.
Here's the standings so far (movement in brackets):
1. Tom Brady, NE, 63.3 (up 2)
2. Robert Griffin III, WAS, 60.7 (down...
“I’ve always liked you shaved.”
Colts players have already shaved their heads to support the fight against cancer. Shockingly, that act alone wasn’t enough to slay the disease. So one of the Colts cheerleaders will also have her head shaved if $10,000 is raised for the Chuckstrong charity by the Nov. 25 game against the Bills.
Given how much attention the pledge has already...
