When he takes the majority of the salary cap he needs to do better to justify his expense. His salary is weakening the team. I realise that the offense and defense split the salary cap evenly.
However, when you are paid top QB money you need to be the top QB. PERIOD!!!

Brady at one point was the highest paid QB in the league, but he has lost the last 2 Super Bowls he has played in.

I doubt the Patriots are complaining about his salary.

Me too. Yes in 09 he looked to be the best that year, but on a consistent basis I would say 3 or 4.

Almost the worst?

Almost is what I say also..... Until games are won or lost on yards, the worst defense is the one that gives up the most points.

On all teams the QB is held accountable, as he goes the team Offense goes. Brady is there due to the rings, IMO Manning and Brees and that's due to (Brees) last year are pretty even as they both can rip a good D apart. That is why for Brees and Manning a D in the 10-15 rank rang will put the team in and Rodgers is close behind

Some of this was on Brees I have stated before when you have no running game and the reason for no running game was it was desperation every time we had the ball to score because everytime we took the lead the defense would give it right back in reacord time. If the oposition had the ball last you knew they were going to score. When you have a defense like ours you are not going to win many games period.

So why is Dan Marino all we hear about as one of the best? 0 rings eye popping stats but stats are just numbers. Must be those glove commercials he made back in the day. It's a damned if you do and damned if you don't league. Don't produce and you are gone, produce, get paid and become an analyst on some football show.
