    Both Max & Molly have lost their marbles talking about Ryan Tannehill, a career .500 qb that finally had one great run with a monster running back DH carrying the offense, he only had to throw for 72 yards against the Patriots.... Tom Brady went 12-4 with very limited offensive weapons. 42 year old Tom Brady wakes up EVERY SINGLE DAY better than Tannehill … respect lost for their opinions

  • Rory Smith
    Rory Smith Month ago

    I’d love to see him stay in division and go to Tennessee and allow Mariota to just get better. My other option is for Tampa Bay to let go of Winston already and bring him in as a bridge until they find their next guy. I understand why Max would say the Chargers though, has logic.

    • Rory Smith
      Rory Smith Month ago

      Chad Justice oh, and why do you say Mariota won’t be back? You think they rid him this offseason?

    • Rory Smith
      Rory Smith Month ago

      Chad Justice yeah, I meant conference so that he can still end up facing the Pats with a rush heavy team with strong talent at tight end and their top wideout, which for all that, Tennessee is an option and we don’t know if he’s staying yet.
      Brady has been trolling the whole Boston fan base about him staying, but it’s just so highly unlikely because he could still probably get, if not the 30, close to $30 million for next year still depending on the team. I wouldn’t rule the Pats out, they’re an option, but he wouldn’t go through everything of voiding his contract and leaving it all open ended still about going into free agency if he was so certain he was just voiding the contract for extra money because if it was that, he would’ve just re-signed with NE for that higher price or at least agreed to it.
      But you’re correct about messing up about them being in the same division, that’s my bad.

    • Chad Justice
      Chad Justice Month ago

      The pats and Titans are not in the same division. Mariota will not be back with the Titans. He is not leaving new England

    33. Tom Brady will retire. *
    I put an asterisk by the possibilities that I believe are at least somewhat feasible, even if there probability is 1 or 2 percent.
    I think the team people are sleeping on are the New York Giants. I can see Tom Brady going there. Don't forget Eli Manning has beaten Tom Brady in two Super Bowls. Also, I would like to see Tom go to Cincinnati and mentor Joe Burrow for a year or two. I see a lot of similarities in these two.
    Tennessee is an interesting choice too, but remember just because a team isn't built to win right now, doesn't mean Tom Brady wouldn't be interested in going there. The QBs aren't the only players entering free agency, and not to mention a draft coming up. Some teams can make some moves, and Tom would attract some talent to wherever he goes. Can you imagine Gronk coming out of retirement to join Tom in Cincinnati, with a young Joe Burrow on the bench soaking up all that knowledge?
    I don't know. I could talk about this all night and run through 1,000 more scenarios.

    Instead of criticizing Tom Brady let us do a little scorecard of his receivers. Seriously there are a teams that none of these guys could make.

    Edelman, great slot guy with great hands and strength for his size, injured in week 3 and played with 3 injuries, was clearly in pain all season and requires surgery in off season. This was his best receiver.

    Phillip Dorsett 5'10" guy with good speed. Decent #3 or maybe #2 guy. Brady heavily relied on him.

    Josh Gordon, substance abuse issues, missed meetings, got cut.

    Antonio Brown, impossible.

    Ben Watson, 39 years old.

    N'keal Harry, rookie missed almost half the season and then was unreliable and struggled to get open.

    Jakobi Meyers, rookie

    Muhammed Sanu, past his prime, struggled to get separation and dumped by the Falcons.

  • sevenrats
    sevenrats 2 months ago

    If Ryan Tannehill had played for the Patriots last season the Patriots would've won 8 games. Max and others dancing on Tom Brady's grave are a bit premature. Tom Brady is still a top 10 QB maybe almost top 5 with the right guys around him. The receivers change the margin for error. Last season, Tom Brady had zero margin for error.
