    Terrible post - the NFL has changed over those years. YOu aren't allowed to hit qb's at all anymore. QB'S are going to be "falling" at later years in their career. Manning/Brady probably still have a few years of playing at a high level.

    And hopefully his replacement isn't Mallet. I would absolutely hate to see Mallet become a great QB since many here wanted us to draft him.

    And the Jets with no offensive weapons and bad QB play got the same wins as us...

    Every year many folks here put on their homer glasses and every year for the past 10 years+ they are always wrong...

    Have some perspective.

He had a very average season this year and I don't think he'll get any better. A body can only handle so much before it starts giving up. There's a reason why players don't play into their 40's. I don't expect Brady to be awful but his days of being a top 5 qb are far over with.
    I agree, this does not seem like the old Brady, he is missing receivers more often. Where in the past, once the ball left his hand, I cringed on who was about to hurt us, and how bad, now once the ball leave his hand, I watch to see if it was on mark, or can even be caught.
    My Draft:

    Round 1: DeVante Parker (WR):
    Speed, size/height, and efficient WR.

    Round 2: Denzel Perryman (I-LB):
    Behind Suh, quality I-LB.

    Round 4: Jalen Collins (CB)
    Possible quality CB w/ work.

    Round 5: Jamil Douglas (Guard/Center/Tackle)
    Guard, can also play center and tackle.

    Round 6: Malcolm Brown (RB)
    Consistent short yardage powerback.

    Staggeringly horrific post with a lack of reading comprehension.

    It doesn't have to do with getting hit. It has to do with reaction time slowing down.

    Unless NFL rule changes somehow slow down time, Brady's going to fall off badly within the next two years.
    Time is running out! Go vote Goat in the FHMM competition!



    No, really. Please. Or I'll unleash this crazy redhead on Tannehill and she'll wreck the 2015 season. So please. Vote for me. Really. I'm not kidding. I'll do it.

    Ryan Tannehill, Geno Smith, and E.J. Manuel. Those are the other three quarterbacks in his division.
    Three up and coming young QBs in Brady's division is the reason Brady will not fall? .......OK

    Please point out the part in my OP where I said the Dolphins were going to catch them.

    For the reading comprehension fail, homer-bashing crowd:

    This was about the Patriots coming back to the pack, not everyone else getting better.

    Good thread and there is no doubt they begin to decline...it's not an exact science but it is inevitable.

    I for one don't believe Brady is better than ever or as good as he once was, Peyton as well, despite the gaudy numbers last year on a loaded football team. If the passing rules stay like they are there is no telling how gaudy passing numbers will get.

    You can see the decline in Peyton though, the arm is weaker than it was.

    Denver knows Peyton ' s window is small and they are going all in.

    If that team stays healthy and Peyton doesn't hit the wall they look hard to beat.

    I agree that Brady is losing it but he still has enough to beat most every team.... If Belicheat can get a strong Defense Brady has enough left to get the job done....looks like thats the route he's taking with the FA moves he made so far....Let's not forget, as poor as the Pats played in that Championship game they were right in it to the end, if they score that 2 pt conversion they would be down by 8 with 3 minutes left.....so the way I see it the Pats were a Gronkowski away from winning that game......one thing I learned about Brady's demise, I won't believe it until its over with.....
