Not too sure about that yet.. I mean, for being such a great qb, I didn't see him throw any resounding magnificent passes throughout the entire SB, and in terms of options, he's actually quite limited. I don't want to overplay Wilson, but the kids got more options as a mixed QB/RB and he's got a good time left.
The only redeeming quality Brady's got is his Bundch'n..
While that's true.. Almost winning gives you nothing and that final offensive call cost them the SB.. It's as simple as that. I didn't see that many bad plays in this SB at all. That INT at the end of the Pat's first drive was caused because Brady couldn't see jack, so I wouldn't really put that against the play calling. The short pass into the endzone with only inches left when you're on 1st and goal, and you're not attempting to use Lynch? The hell was that? If that didn't succeed the first time, you'd still have time to try that short pass. Because I'm Dutch and I don't get ESPN, or NBC, or whichever broadcaster had the rights, I got stuck with Dutch commentary (which on a whole isn't that great, but alas). They made an interesting analogy, which I'm not sure was heard as where: When you live by a rule, you're likely going to die by a rule. Perhaps that's what Carroll was enticipating? "If we got Lynch now, they'll expect it, and we'll lose, so no?".. Bit him in the end though.
When you play the game of FB, you either win, or you die.
