Guy has been a class act, I wish we had him on the Dolphins. Hate the pats fine but you have to admit Tom Brady is a damn good QB and if you watched him tear up that Pittsburgh secondary it just shows you why he is undefeated in the post season he doesnt make mistakes and he throws a pretty nice deep ball. He might not have the numbers that Payton Manning has but but he has 2 superbowl rings.

I just hope AJ is our Brady.

He and Manning are my two favorite QBs.

Brady is the league's best IMO. And I think he'll go down as one of the best ever. That third Super Bowl ring will solidify his place in history.

I would rather see JT knock Tom Brady on his azz... :D

I will admit that Tom Brady is a good QB, but the thing is is that he is on one of the phins most hated teams so it kind of goes with the territory. So it makes sense that you don't get much but critisism around here. It's like all of the pat fans that say that the dolphin corners arnt good that they play a cheap game by grabbing and stuff. When there is something good on the other team you can only give so much credit, and then it is all about critisism.

I respect and like Tom Brady. I think he's a class act as well. As you get older you come to respect the players who carry themselves with class. I'm only 31(some of you might consider that old) but I liked the way guys like Barry Sanders and Jerry Rice carried themselves. Honestly if there was 1 guy who broke Dan's record it was best it being Peyton. Just to hear him after the game call Dan his hero shows he's a decent guy.

All that being said I did enjoy watching Brady lose the 2 games they lost this year. This is a guy where since he's come into the league almost everything has gone right. It's nice to see him struggle like other players. This definately could be the early seeds of hatred being sewn.

Brady can through a pretty long ball. The rest of the team makes him look pretty good. Hes no Brett Favre.

Me Too!!! I just get tired of people saying he is right up there with Montana and Marino when he has only played five years. He is a product of the Pat's system right now.

Brady's a Pat. That or being a Bill or Jet makes you a Dolphin's worst enemy (unless you convert to our team). I'd like to see how he'd do without Belichick before I think of him as a HOF QB.

Don't discount Brady as a QB. Did anyone see the 1st td pass he threw against the Steelers? This was supposed to be a high pressure game and he set the tone with that pass. I would take him over Manning any day of the week. He has balls.

The title of this thread is "What is this Hatred of Tom Brady I keep seeing"...ARE YOU NEW!? This is a Dolphins message board! Anyone here who does'nt hate all things Patriot is a little mental in my opinion.

The guy is the quarterback for the Dolphins number one rival and could be about to win his third title in four years...I repect him but it does'nt mean I can't hate him like poisen...

If Dan Marino became a Bill, Jet, or Patriot, I'd probably have hateful feelings against him. So it isn't personal. If Brady was traded to the Fins and won rings here, we'd love him. But the fact is simple, he's a Pat. Pats suck. Go Eagles.

I am so sick and tired of hearing ESPN, John Madden and everyone else who clings to Tom Brady's jock strap praise him like it is him alone that wins the games for the Patriots. They win because they have a great team and anyone that knows anything about the NFL sees that. He is nowhere near the skill level of Dan Marino, Brett Favre, John Elway, Peyton Manning...etc. If he was seriously injured I would not lose a wink of sleep.

It's not personal... It's probably the fact that he is a Pat and has never lost a playoff game.

He is a great QB, my favorite atm. His poise and composure is awesome, he posesses exactly what I look for in a QB - and, as a side note, I think Leinart is very similar to him. Does nothing ultra fancy, but does almost everything efficiently.

I never liked Marino because he always beat us but I sure respected the hell out of him. Great football player. The label they put on him of the "Best QB never to win a Superbowl sucks. Wasn't his fault he never had any type of running game. Other teams knew he was gonna pass and he still did it anyway. I like him alot more now that he is retired and not killing us anymore.

Personally, I never liked him much. I respect the hell out of him, and agree that he has clearly cemented his place in history and the HOF. But I always had that jealous feeling that he fell into the singular most perfect system to diaplay his talents. I dont think he would have thrived in Miami. Or NY. Or anyplace else for that matter. Bellicheck and Brady are the perfect match.

Anyway, all the power to him. Hes played lights out in every big game, and deserves all the fanfare hes receiving.

Too much hatorade on this board. People just hate because we don't have him. Top 5 QBs in this league, not in any order...Culpepper, Manning, Favre, McNabb and Brady. Brady is simply unbelievable. Everytime I see him I have mixed feelings because yes he is a class act and a good player which makes me like him but he plays for New England which makes it hard for me to like him. But If I could pick another QB beside the Fins QB as my fav. in the AFC East, it would be Brady. Hate that smirk that Pennington carries.

I'm beginning to wonder if it's the system. Bledsoe also played quite well in the last game he had as a Pat against the Steelers. He was miserable before that.

Perfectly said. The guy simply isn't as talented as Marino, Favre, Elway and Manning. He is in a system that showcases his talents and hides his weaknesses tremendously, take him out of New England and have him perform like this, then we'll start to talk one of the greatest of all-time and HOF.

You are letting your hatred of everything Patriots blind you. If you just said "He's a good QB but I hate the Pats" I can respect that. That is why I like this board. Most of the Dolphins fans know what they are talking about. You do not. What does he have left to prove? If you want to win a close game he can do that, if you want to win with a shootout he can do that to. He adapts to the situation.

What does he have to prove? How about winning without Belichick and Weiss.. how about that? The guy has an offensive line that most days doesn't allow a defender within 5 yards of him. Since Patriot fans love to pick on AJ and Jay (used to) let's see Tommy "Wonder" Boy in the Dolphins offense with no offensive line. The guy isn't that great behind an average offensive line that's putting pressure on him (See MNF this year). He's a good player in a GREAT system, as most Patriots are. I think it's ridiculous to start talking HOF now, but then again you are ridiculous, so it works out. :lol:

P.S. No one cares about your opinion, so why don't you just leave? All you do is cause trouble here anyway.

No quarterback can win with a terrible offensive line. I think we can all agree to that. Other teams currently have good offensive lines yet they have not won 3 out of 4 superbowls. So your point is at best irrelavent. I am just pointing out what is obvious to everyone else. Your hatred of the Patriots clouds your judgement. All you seem to know how to do is insult people. Which is ok if it helps you to sleep better at night.

Like I said before if you could just say you hated the Patriots without spouting untrue facts then I can respect that. I haven't responded to anyone who has posted something like that. Besides, since you are replying to me you obviously do care about my opinion.

Tom Brady reminds me a lot of Terry Bradshaw when he was with the Steelers dynasty. He wasn't the greatest QB ever but man did he have a supporting cast. The Steelers had an ok offense and Bradshaw would get it to Swann and Stallworth, and Franco would get the tough yards. Corey Dillon is the Pat's Franco Harris, and other than that you have a basic average running game.
I think if you put Brady on another team he is just an average QB. How many times have you seen the Pats really dominant any team or blow anone out the last couple years??? They win most their games by 3-7 points and do just enough to win. I am not buying the hype. :yell:

Can you even name one Pro Bowl player on that line ? Your hatred is clouding your judgement. Who cares how many points the Patriots won by. The bottom line is that they won. Every QB adapts to the team's system. Put Brady in Baltimore and they would have won 3 out of 4 SBs easily. Put him on the Jets or the Bills and they would easily be the class of the division and be an annual championship contender. Heck, put him on the Dolphins and you guys might have won a couple of Vinces in the past 5 years.

Look it's this simple. Hate him all you want to as an opposing fan, that is both fair and to be expected. But you can't hate the man. He holds himself with class and plays a solid game. He is not the greatest ever, but he has earned himself a place in history. That would make some players head's a little bigger than Brady displays.

I know that all the articles and sports shows talk him up and all that, but you can't blame Brady for that. In the media, they cover what is winning and he happens to have been that guy.

I like to compare, as a Red Sox fan, the Jeter situation. I hate him with all that is in me, but I respect both the man and the way he plays completely. My hatred remains in both respect and jealousy.

And to address the Pats fans are not allowed to be Pats fans since they only became decent in the last deacde or so, I have been a lifetime Pats fan and who cares if they haven't. Sports teams winning gives both pride and joy to a community. Everyone rallies together and it becomes fun. You know the feeling and I hope you get to experience it again too as crazy as that sounds. I put that whole label on the accuser. I for one will enjoy the good times while they last (and they may be gone!) and treasure the memories of 3 in 4 years with a great group of friends. If you are implying that Boston fans are not loyal fans, I disagree, but that is for a different day. ;)

Anyway, good discussions here. You guys have a great forum.

I hate him because I think hes the product of a system. 110% product. If not for Bellichek and Weiss he would be back at home in San Fran.

He just doesn't impress me. Only thing I give him credit for is the fact that he will take a hit.

You hate him because he is a product of a system? That makes zero sense. Seriously. You think he is average, but a system allowed him to be successful, so when a player excels you hate him?

I've seen some reason here that make sense, but I've never even heard of someone hating someone for doing good in a system. :lol:

I agree. He is a part of a team. He doesn't make too many mistakes behind that line. He has more time to throw the ball than any QB I've seen in a long time.

If he had played for Miami the last three years people would be saying Tom Who and he'd be crippled up so bad he'd look like an 80 year old man hobbling around. QB's and coaches have the same problem, they get too much credit when they win and too much criticizm when they lose. I hope like hell anybody but the Pats or the Eagles win next year. I need a change. I've given up almost every sport I used to follow. I'm getting real close to giving up pro football and NASCAR aint far behind.

I doubt that. When they lost to Pittsburg mid-season, the Steelers put heat on him and he folded like a cheap suit.

What I see is a line that holds out defenses that don't even get close to him most of the time. You can't stop them on third down because he is going to get 5-6 seconds to throw the ball and it's as easy and pitch and catch with their line. They don't make too many big plays, they just "matriculate" (coined by Hank Stram) the ball down the field.

Brady would be in a wheel chair if he played behind our line. It's hard to pass when the defenders get back in the pocket before your QB does.

I don't think many people really hate anyone. They say that. I thought I hated Dale Ernhardt until that tragic day. It really makes you think about what sports does to you. You think you hate someone and then something happens to them and you realize you don't. Ever since I don't even think badly of any sports figure. Living will do that to you.

I'm a life long Bosox fan. I started pulling for them when they had Yaz, Dewey, Rooster, Lee, Tiant, Fisk and then Freddy later in the 70's. Back then the only pro team in FL in any sport were the Fins. Damn, it must be great to pull for both teams. Obvioulsy I'm a fin fan and lived in FL most of my life. I couldn't believe last year. I hope the Sox can win this year. I really didn't want the Yankees to get Johnson. I saw a dude on ESPN and he thought the Bosox would play better this year despite losing Pedro and that the Yankees still don't have any hitting. I hope that is true.

How long was it between championships for the BoSox, 83 years. As a Fin fan since '71 we got a good start on halfway. Bwahahahahahaha. I'll be dead and gone at that rate.

There is only one guy who I admire and respect on the Pats....Adam Vinatieri....he does his job and you don't see him with that cocky smirk on his face like Brady or Bruschi. Adam Vinatieri was in a kicking competiton with the Eagles kicker and some other guys and you never heard him boast or brag, and he was complimenting the other kickers....He also makes the kicks in pressure money situations.

I doubt that. When they lost to Pittsburg mid-season, the Steelers put heat on him and he folded like a cheap suit.

That day, the Patriots were missing Corey Dillon, their best receiver Deion Branch, and their starting LT Matt Light. I'll concede Brady had a bad first half, but he still managed to throw 2 TDs in the second half. That's hardly "folding like a cheap suit" as you have described. The Pittsburgh game and the MNF game against the Dolphins were his only 2 bad games of the season, coincidentally the only 2 games the Pats lost. You make it sounded as though these bad performances are the norm, instead of the rare exception. Are you trying to tell me Montana, Marino, Kelly, Manning, Elway never had those games? Look how he played in the playoffs against the best defenses in the league and come back to tell he folded like a cheap suit.




What I see is a line that holds out defenses that don't even get close to him most of the time. You can't stop them on third down because he is going to get 5-6 seconds to throw the ball and it's as easy and pitch and catch with their line. They don't make too many big plays, they just "matriculate" (coined by Hank Stram) the ball down the field.

People tend to overlook Brady's ability to move within the pocket to buy extra time that he needs. The Pat's line is small, where the average lineman is less than 310 lbs. Most of the time against an agressive and fast DE, especially on passing downs, they have go to maximum protection where one or both TEs (depends on the play), and the RB will stay back to help block. The way I see it, the 5-6 seconds you mentioned is a bit exaggerated, and it stems from the protection scheme and QB pocket awareness more than the overwhelming talents of the linemen.




Brady would be in a wheel chair if he played behind our line. It's hard to pass when the defenders get back in the pocket before your QB does.

Your line was not always this bad. How were they able to pave the way for Ricky Williams to have an 1800 yd season, followed by an 1300 yd season? My point here is that if you guys had Brady instead of Fiedler for the past 5 years, chances are you might have won a couple of superbowls. The Dolphins always had a great D, they had good receivers/TE in Chambers and McMichael, and they had one of the best RB in the league in Ricky Williams. The only thing you missed talent wise was a top QB. Poor drafts and poor QB play, along with conservative coaching (which may have stemmed from the lack of protection from QB position) is what prevented you guys from going over the top.

I think the reason some still shy away from greatness compared to Montana is he is still young. He really hasn't had to win any games himself or has had monster games or plays. I doubt with Bill as head coach not many QB's would. That's not the way he coaches. I have seen him make some bad decisions when he is under pressure which doesn't happen very often. He will chunk it out blindly at times. I still think most other QB's in the league could do just as well as Brady in that system.

Um, Ricky Williams made most of those yards on his own. The same line that blocked for him for 1800 yards didn't produce that the year before. Ricky didn't make many yards between the tackles. He made most off tackle and he punishes people downfield.


Poor drafts and poor QB play, along with conservative coaching (which may have stemmed from the lack of protection from QB position) is what prevented you guys from going over the top

Drafts? That year we went 10-6 and didn't make the playoffs we had the talent. I will say coaching was a problem although our o-line was not that good. Ricky carried our offense but it wasn't consistent. You'll never hear me beat up Jay. I watched him get the crap clocked out of his *** time and time again. No QB and I don't care if it were Montana/Brady could have done much better. You can't thow the ball when you got a DE/DB stuck in your spine or a 350 pound tackle breathing down your throat. You mention coaching, how would a great QB be any better than the coaching. Aint happenin. I will also tell you this that this team has had a pile of bad breaks and poor luck.

One thing I have seen over the past several years is the same thing that started happening in the NBA in the mid-80s. The NBA became Showtime like Pro Wrestling and owners that had no patience. The game became dilluted because there was no stability in coaching and the level of play on league average was poor. Teams were more flash that good/smart/well coached. The Bulls looked great because the rest of the league sucked. Teh same thing is happening with the Patriots. I don't think they are that great. They llok great because the rest of the teams are just plain out not good. Look at how many teams are trying to build a champ in one year like Jones in Dallas, the Washington coach to name a few. Teams are not built like they were in the 70's. Look at how many teams that are sub-500 that are SB contenders the next year. Pro football doesn't mean too much to me anymore. The NFL has become like a lot of other sports, big egos, tit baby players,coaches, owner, and fans. Then you have a coach like Bill and the team he built and it's easy to see how they win. I'm not taking away from anything they've done but they just don't have any competition because there really aint no competition.

He really hasn't had to win any games himself or has had monster games or plays.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he drive his team to not one, but two Super Bowl wins by throwing the ball down the field in the last minutes of a game?

What about the infamous "Snow Bowl" a few years ago when he threw more than 50 passes for 300+ yards in a blizzard?

What about the Super Bowl against the Panthers, where he was GREAT?

The guy is just an incredibly efficient player. People say he's a system QB? Bullcrap... I say he makes players around him better. He makes the OL better by moving around the pocket. He makes the WR's better by hitting them in stride. His mere presence makes the running game better.

The Patriots would be lost without Brady.

Guy has been a class act, I wish we had him on the Dolphins. Hate the pats fine but you have to admit Tom Brady is a damn good QB and if you watched him tear up that Pittsburgh secondary it just shows you why he is undefeated in the post season he doesnt make mistakes and he throws a pretty nice deep ball. He might not have the numbers that Payton Manning has but but he has 2 superbowl rings.

I just hope AJ is our Brady.


thanx for those kind words on him and he has 3 sb rings not 2 :)

I think it's just rivalry in AFC East fans' cases, and jealousy other times. Hey, I hate watching the Pats continue to roll, but I admit that they have provided me with some great football to watch. Brady is classy and great and even the fan that "hates" him the most would love him on their own team. The guy throws a sweet ball and makes great decisions. We all know it.

But remember, when the season starts we all go back to pretending to hate him as part of the fun of being a rival fan. The only thing most of us really hate is how the press tends to overinflate players who are already great (like Brady). But that is beyond the control of the player.

And that is legit. To me, that is what a rival fan is suppossed to do. It's people who hate him because he is a hard working succeess story that bother me. I know this country has changed a lot over the last five years, but when did rooting for the bully over the underdog become "hot." :shakeno:

I never hated Marino. I respected the hell out of his game, but didn't like him because he played for a rival. There is a difference. Now, if Marino gave me reason to ahte him (beat his wife, etc.) then that would be a different story.
