I'm going to make this thread because I think people need to see what a great college quarterback is supposed to look like. I will fill this thread full of vintage Tom Brady games from his time at Michigan. Not highlights. Full games in their entirety. I think people need to see exactly how clutch this guy was.
Pay attention to his body language when he breaks the huddle. Take clear notice of his mechanics from his footwork dropping back from under center, to the decisions he makes. Watch him go through his progressions. Take specific notice of his ball handling on play action, ball placement and accuracy on every throw that an NFL quarterback is asked to make. Take note of his ability to diagnose coverages pre-snap.
All of this should be clear and concise as you take the time to watch these games. Again, they're full games, so they'll take some time to watch. Watch his pocket presence and the way he deals with pressure.
Most of all, I want you to notice how he RESPONDS after he makes a mistake or throws an interception. I want the numerous people who never watched this guy play in college to see precisely how clutch Tom Brady was.
Yes, a 6th round pick is the standard by which I measure college quarterbacks. This is what a franchise signal caller is supposed to look like before they take a snap in the NFL. This is as close to perfect as you can play the position in my opinion.
Brady led Michigan back from 14 point deficits in this game TWICE.
