Mr. Consistency: While his looks have changed over the years, his play on the field has not and the many faces of Tom Brady are just another piece of the legacy he is still writing.
When you think of some of the greatest men to ever lead our country, the same names instinctively come to mind time and time again. Household last names, that don’t require a first name, a middle initial or anything else, like Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt and, of course, Washington.
The same can be said for NFL quarterbacks. If 100 random people were surveyed on a busy city street regarding who they believed the best quarterback of all-time to be, many of the answers would definitely be repeated.
Some would gravitate to the original greats like Johnny Unitas or Bart Starr. Others might lean on those with the greatest stats like Brett Favre or Dan Marino.
But, then there would be those fans smart enough not to look at what the quarterback has done for himself, but to look at what the quarterback has do...

The AFC Championship game did not go the way that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots had hoped. Not all is upset with the Patriots loss as twitter exploded with a slue of tweets about #Bradying.
It seems everyone thought that with about 8:27 seconds left in the 4th quarter it was the perfect time to take out the phone and snap a shot of Brady.
There is only one team Tom Brady hasn’t thrown more touchdowns than interceptions against. Can you take a guess? Ok, that was easy, right?
In Brady’s 7 games against the Ravens (postseason included), he has thrown 7 touchdowns and 8 interceptions (he still leads his team to victory though, going 5-2, which in the end is all that matters). His completion percentage of 58.4 is...
It is hard to tell if this is was an intentionally dirty play, or just an incredible awkward slide. We will leave it up to you.

Only one thing is better than beating a team that beat you the last time you met. And that's beating that team to go to the Super Bowl.
There's no set way for defenses to stop Tom Brady. If there were then former Patriots and current Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees would have found it by now. Then again, he could always get someone else to do his dirty work.
Pees, who coached the Patriots for six seasons from 2004 to 2009, answered questions about Brady and the Patriots on Thursday ahead of Sunday'...
So Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was running his mouth again. Not really trash talk this time, but he kind of gave some insight into the Ravens game plan. It sure is a strange one.
They are going to apparently focus on stopping the run first, and they want the ball to be in Tom Brady's hands. Ok then...
"The run game was shut down and the pass game, they...
Aggravation is word that comes to mind while watching the Patriots offense take on the half powered Ravens defense. Series after series dropped balls and poor execution led to punt after punt and turned promising red zone trips into 3-point disappointments for Patriot fans.
I’m going to go where no Patriots beat writer or local media member will go and I’m going to put this...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was mic'd up for the Divisional Round win over the Houston Texans. The main thing of note is how they talk about the quick snaps, especially the conversation with Brandon Lloyd, shortly before his TD catch. It really showed how the Pats took advantage of the Texans with the no-huddle, which will be something to look out for this Sunday...
The Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots AFC Championship match-up is going to be epic. It is a fitting match-up for the AFC crown. It puts together two teams that have been bitter playoff rivals in the past. It's the best quarterback of this generation in Tom Brady, against the best "defensive quarterback" or middle linebacker of this generation, Ray Lewis. There...

It made for great story lines all week. The upstart, emotional Ravens, playing for Ray Lewis' retirement, come to New England seeking revenge against a superior offense.Joe Flacco, set to prove that he is in the same league as Tom Brady, needs to repeat his performance from a week earlier in Denver; can New England's defense rise to the challenge, or are they as weak as everyone...
