Tom Brady is good....but, I'm sorry - if he didn't play for Belicheat and CIA Adams he'd be forgettable.

That system turned a guy - could have been any guy - into a God if he could throw a ball just 30 feet accurately.

For the life of me, I don't understand how the successes of guys like Cassel or Garp-whatever-the-his-name-is don't diminish what Brady has "accomplished." When a back-up comes in for Ben, there is a large drop off between the starter and the back-up. Cassel's one season starting in NE was better than 6 of Tom's season by QBR; it was better than 7 of Tom's season by YPA. It looked like an average median season for Brady. Jimmy G. was statically identical to Brady last year.

With two exceptions (Young in SF and Rodgers in GB), I can't think of many back-ups who produced at the same level of the starter for more than a game or two. The two outliers dealt with guys who were highly thought of prospects.

It stinks to me.
