Brady will be Big

If you somehow thought QB Tom Brady wasn’t all that, then consider Brady came very, very close to winning the Super Bowl this year, for the 4th time in six year, with Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney as his top two receivers. I know the Pats didn’t even make the big game, but they could have easily pulled out a win in the AFC title game – and they would have creamed the Bears in the Big Game had they made it. Peyton Manning did win it, and I’m happy to give him credit, but he also could have easily lost that game to Brady’s Patriots, with Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne as his top two receivers.
Kind of puts Brady into perspective, doesn’t it?

Some may be more impressed by his impregnating (multiple) hot celebrity types, but I still can’t get over the fact that he was “this” close to winning another championship with such skank at receiver. Perhaps, when I’m over that, I’ll become catatonic once the reality of Brady’s ridiculous sex life sinks in.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
