2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Last year TB12 had 611 passing attempts that yielded 5,235 passing yards and went for 39 TDs


(+) Brady still throws the best long-ball in the game


(+) Gotta love those two tight ends (Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez) are doing in this offense


(+) Since his knee surgery, Brady has played in 16 games each of the past 3 seasons


(+) Terrific Tom lost another Super Bowl to Eli Manning last season and from a fantasy perspective, you gotta like an angry Tom Brady


(+) Gronk had the best statistical year ever for a tight end last season


(+) Besides the Packers, there isn't a team in the league with more depth at the WR position


(+) The “Slot Machine” (Wes Welker) is now two years removed from his knee injury and looks better than ever


(+) New England has been a pass-heavy team the past six years and Bill Belichick loves to run up the score


(+) Brandon Lloyd is now the downfield threat for Brady - a HUGE upgrade over Deion Branch 


(+) Tom rarely throws interceptions, as evidenced by his career 2.16% INT Percentage (third-best ever)


(+) Josh McDaniels is back as the Patriots offensive coordinator. Remember that 2007 almost perfect season?!


(–) Believe it or not, New England has been in the top-six in rushing TDs each of the past six seasons and should continue that trend in 2012


(–) Hopefully these girly hairdos he’s been sporting doesn’t turn him into a wuss


(–) Matt Light retired


(–) Tom will be 35 years old when the season starts – basically, he's not getting any younger

2009 Review

tom brady header graphic


Tom who?  Isn’t he the guy you used to see staring at you from the covers of People and US magazine while standing in line at the grocery store a couple of years back?  Well, he hasn’t gone undercover (no pun intended) quite as deep as Menudo or the inventor of those Progressive commercials has, but then again, getting on the cover of supermarket tabloids doesn't get you points in your fantasy football league. 


It’s not like Mr. Gisele Bundchen had a crappy season in 2009, because he didn’t, but it sure has been quiet in Beantown since his Patriots blew their perfect season in Super Bowl XLII three years back.  In fact, Brady put up arguably his second best statistical season ever in 2009, yet because a team’s successes or failures are largely heaped upon the QBs shoulders, it might have been viewed as being a poor season.  However, fantasy owners know better, and no doubt will be making him one of the top fantasy quarterback picks again come 2010.

2010 Fantasy Outlook







Right now, Brady is in the post-Caddyshack time of his career. Meaning that like Bill Murray after Caddyshack, he still will be very relevant, but he will never top the performances he had earlier in his career. Brady is a good enough quarterback to stay in within the group of fantasy starters in the league, but it’ll be tough for him to find his way back into the Top-5 again in 2010.  Without his favorite target around to start the season in Wes Welker, he’ll have to step it up a notch to be considered among the elite this year.  The Patriots suddenly have a bunch of holes to fill throughout the roster, so the team might have to pass the ball more to stay in games, which could end up favoring Brady’s fantasy prognosis. New England also runs a highly impactful offensive system, so the possibility of Brady scratching the top of the QB bluebloods isn’t entirely out of the question, but we’d still suggest taking Rodgers, Brees, P. Manning, Schaub, and maybe even Favre (if he comes back) ahead of him this year.


~ Randy Moss is still Randy Moss


~ Welker will be back, just not for the beginning of the season


~ He’ll be another year removed from his knee surgery


~ He’ll have his first full off-season in a couple of years to gel with the team


~ Belichick is still the coach, which means the team probably still cheats

Brian Hoyer - Given what happened to Brady back in 2008, fantasy players won’t soon overlook the backup QBs to elite, stable starters like Brady again.  After shoring up your skill positions with at least 3-4 RBs, 4-5 WRs, and 2 QBs, taking a flier on Hoyer isn’t a terrible call

Injury Report

Yellow

Two major knee surgeries moved him from green to yellow. He's almost two years removed from this injury, but our sources tell us the knee will never be the same again.

Tom Brady Will Serve Four Game Suspension In 2016

New England Patriots

Pyro's take: New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will officially miss the first four games of the 2016 regular season as he announced on Friday that he will no longer proceed with legal action against the NFL. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: Deflategate is officially over as Tom Brady accepts his four-game ban and will serve the suspension during the first quarter of the 2016 regular season. Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to start in Brady's absence.

Gronk + Martellus = Gronk and Hernandez from 2010 - 2012

FOXBORO — Watching the Patriots offense operate without Rob Gronkowski usually isn’t much fun. But that was before Martellus Bennett showed up.

Pyro's take: FOXBORO — Watching the Patriots offense operate without Rob Gronkowski usually isn’t much fun. But that was before Martellus Bennett showed up.

Fantasy Goo: Aaron Hernandez had a noteworthy three year career where in 38 games played he caught 18 touchdowns. Can it happen again with Gronkowski and Bennett? Martellus is one of the better tight ends in the league and would have Tom Brady which is better than his prior quarterbacks. There's the "Y" tight end, which is the name for the traditional in-line tight end, and then there's the "F" tight end which is a movable player (move tight end). Most of us never even heard about Y or F until Gronk and Hernandez made those common labels. Gronkowski and Hernandez were possibly (I say yes) the best tandem of tight ends to ever play on the same roster in NFL history. I love Bennett’s current mock draft spot in 12 team leagues which is round 12 and the 14th TE selected. Make this Unicorn your fantasy in 2016.

Tom Brady "Essentially Guaranteed" To Play All Off 2016 If Granted An Appeal

According to Ian Rapoport

Pyro's take: According to Ian Rapoport, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady would be "essentially guaranteed" to play the 2016 season if the Second Circuit grants him the en blanc appeal he is filing today.

If Brady is granted the appeal, his four-game suspension would be put on hold, and it could take the entire length of the 2016 season to reach a verdict on the appeal. Brady is more than likely going to miss four games, the question is whether it is this year or next. For now the situation bares monitoring as the Patriots signal caller is one the most significant players in the NFL.

Brady Suspended 4 games.... Again

A U.S Court of Appeals has sided with the NFL in the Deflategate saga.

Pyro's take: A U.S Court of Appeals has sided with the NFL in the Deflategate saga. The Court held that "the commissioner properly exercised his broad direction under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness."

Brady will now be slated to miss the first four games of the season, but I doubt this is the last episode in this saga of the offseason. Brady is now in line to miss contests against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate with Jimmy Garoppolo set to get the starts. Brady's ADP will surely fall from the middle of the fourth round, to where he could now be a value pick with a replacement level QB the first four weeks of the season. The Patriots are on bye in Week 5, so Week 6 is the first time you will be able to slide Tom in the lineup.

Tom Brady completed 27-of-56 passes for 310 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions

TB

Pyro's take: The Broncos defense treated Tom Brady as a pinata throwing him to the ground and basically stomping on him all game. The two interceptions were from the defense putting pressure on him.

He finished completing less than half his passes and a 1:2 touchdown to interception ratio.

TB

Pyro's take: Tom Brady was on point all game and carved the Steelers defense up all night. The Steelers lacked coverage on Rob Gronkowski several times. Brady finished with 25-of-32 passes for 288 yards and four touchdowns. It doesnt appear that the offseason turmoil had any effect on the hall of famer to be.

This boot was Not Made for Walking

Tom Brady is going to Buffalo without the walking boot he was wearing during the week. because of an ankle injury, suffered during practice. He is listed as questionable. Brady during the season has thrown 104 passes on 172 attempts for 1,083 yards with six touchdowns and four interceptions in five games. Brady’s completion percentage of 60.5 percent is tied for his lowest since 2003, when he completed 60.2 percent of his passes.

Pyro's take: Tom Brady was finally successful against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football. This week against Buffalo he is going to see more pass rush, and a tighter defensive unit. If you have better options at quarterback, I would go with it, Brady will always have a good game here and there, but it wont be tomorrow against the Bills.

looking like Marcia

Brady struggled again, this time against the Oakland Raiders. Oakland was exposed by Houston the previous week for 30 points, but the Patriots could only score 16. Its not that Brady has been horrible, he hasn't had an interception, and completed 24 of 37 passes for 234 yards, an improvement over the 149 he had at Minnesota in Week 2.



Pyro's take: Brady just hasn't been able to move the offense, and even though he has been accurate, its more like he has turned into Alex Smith and not his typical pin-ball numbers. I dont see this improving over this year, and it looks more and more he should be a second quarterback, and not an every week starter.

Needs to fire up teammates

Tom Brady has always played the game with a lot of emotion, he is the first to take the blame, and the first to correct the problem. Sometimes his emotions get the better of his teammates, and it can get frustrating from their point of view.

Troy Brown, has mentioned about Brady: "Just in working with Bill in the past and knowing how he wants guys to step up and take that leadership role," Brown said. "He probably wants some of that from Tom . . . But to a point where you have to challenge these guys to step up and make some plays. You can't baby them, you can't nurture them. You gotta try to encourage them and try to help them get to a place where they can make those types of plays."

Brown also mentions about the importance of tearing down and building up character: "When you tear a guy down sometimes, you got to be able to build him back up too," Brown said. "You got to be able to give him some confidence to go back out there and make some plays. You can't just tear him down and leave him there and expect him to go back on the field and be comfortable."

Pyro's take: The thing with Brady is that he had to fight his whole career to become the person he is today and has been his whole career. From his perspective he may forget that not everyone shares the same passion, and when that occurs, he is likely to tear them down, and the hard part is building them back up.

Sucky retirement

Tom Brady probably came away with the best preseason comment of the season. When asked about his future with the New England Patriots and retirement plans on the WEEI Dennis & Callahan morning show, he stated: “There's nowhere I'd rather play, I know that, I love playing for this team and I love representing this team and hopefully I can do that for as long as I can. When I suck, I’ll retire. But I don’t plan on sucking for a long time."

Pyro's take: Tom Brady will probably not ever suck, but one day he will have to retire, like him, I hope that it will be a long time before then.

Brady is looking to topple Montana, not Manning

It’s Brady. It’s always been Brady. And even if Manning’s favored Denver Broncos prevail Sunday against the New England Patriots, it still will be Brady.

This is not about quarterback ratings or NFL MVP awards, of which Manning has a record four. The most crystallizing, defining measure of a quarterback is this: whether he can perform at his best at the most crucial moment of his given season.

Manning, 37, has superior career passing and touchdown numbers, but those will never trump these: Brady, 36, has won twice as many playoff games and two more Super Bowl trophies. And he has been to three more Super Bowls and four more conference championship games .

Even the best statistical argument for Manning in my mind — his 51 game-winning drives, which are tied with Dan Marino for the most in a career — falls short. Brady has led 42 such drives, but seven have come in January or February, three of them in the Super Bowl.

That’s not merely clutch for his era. That’s historically money.

Joe Montana has 33 game-winning drives but just three in January — including “The Catch” to Dwight Clark against Dallas in the 1981 season’s NFC championship (which Brady actually saw in person as a 4-year-old Bay Area kid) and the 1988 Super Bowl to beat the Bengals.

Fact: Brady and Montana are the only two players in NFL history to win the NFL most valuable player and Super Bowl MVP awards multiple times. If Brady wins two more games this season, he will have as many Super Bowl titles as Montana.

Fact: Brady and Elway are the only two quarterbacks to lead their teams to five Super Bowls. If Brady takes the Patriots to a sixth this season, he stands alone.

Fact: No quarterback has more wins in playoff history than Brady’s 18 against seven losses. Montana went 16-7. Brady has 31 more regular season wins than Montana and a higher career passing rating.

Fact: Joe Montana’s greatest receiver during his Super Bowl years was Jerry Rice, only the greatest receiver ever. Peyton Manning’s was Marvin Harrison, soon to be a Hall of Famer. Tom Brady’s greatest receiver during his three Super Bowl victories was Troy Brown. (Randy Moss, bless his straight-cash-homie heart, was just passing through.)

Fact: Peyton Manning is 10-11 in the postseason.

Pyro's take: Brady has been Mr. Clutch in his career, just not as of late. Since losing to the Giants in the Super Bowl Brady is 4-4 in the post-season, including his win last week. In order for Brady to put himself in a class of his own over Montana and Elway he needs to win the title this year. Manning just happens to be standing in his way.

Brady is the quarterback you want in the big game. Tom terrific is once again doing it with no receivers to speak of and just keeps getting it done. A win today against Manning will put him on the verge of being the greatest quarterback of all-time.

Blame it on Del Rio

Toucher & Rich out of Boston shed light on a nutty selection of stats that Tom has against Jack...

Tom Brady has completed 171-of-235 passes (73 percent) for 1,771 yards, 17 touchdowns and zero interceptions. That’s a passer rating of 121.1 against Del Rio, now Denver’s defensive coordinator.

Brady’s record against Del Rio in those games is 7-0, including playoff victories over Jacksonville in 2005 and 2007 when Del Rio was the Jaguars’ head coach.

Pyro's take: Looks like the Stetson Man knows how to shred Blame it on Del Rio's defenses, those numbers are totally staggering, almost impossible to believe. This doesn't bode well for the Broncos who are really banged up on defense at the moment as it is.

If I am a Patriots fan, I'm feeling really good about my team's chances on offense right now. The only question is can the Patriots defense stop the Peyton Manning offensive juggernaut.

Brady holds a 10-4 record against Manning

Brady holds a 10-4 record in the head-to-head matchup between these two, all but two of those games came when Manning was the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. Facing Manning's team on the road, Brady and the Patriots hold a 3-2 advantage.

Over those 14 games:

*Team points per game: 30.0 for the Patriots, 24.6 for Colts/Broncos.

*Quarterback completion percentage: 67.0% for Brady, 61.8% for Manning.

*Touchdowns to interceptions: 26 TDs, 12 INTs for Brady; 29 TDs, 20 INTs for Manning.

*Passing yards per game: 243.1 for Brady, 283.6 for Manning.

Pyro's take: What an awesome rivalry! It's been easily the best in any sport over the past 10 years. It's funny when you talk about Brady everyone always says it's Bill Belichick and the team around him it seems, but anything that comes to Manning is all Peyton's doing, like he's been throwing to slouches during his career.

Not the case.

If Brady pulls it out on Sunday and bring the head-to-head record to 11-4 - it'll be devastating to Manning's legacy. If Brady then goes on to win a Super Bowl, it cements Tom as the best QB ever in my books. If that happens it will be a total mindfuck to Mr. Omaha Steaks. Now if Peyton wins his next 2 games it's enormous for his legacy, he needs that second ring pretty bad.

Brady plays with badly bruised hand

Brady’s right throwing hand, which had been mashed during a third-quarter sack last week against the Jets, looked like it belonged to a boxer. It was so swollen and puffed out on top, you could barely tell he had knuckles.

And it showed.

His very first pass, intended for Rob Gronkowski, was a disaster. He threw behind the tight end, and the ball was picked off by Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson. That led to a quick Miami touchdown.

Bad hand and all, he also made some big-time deliveries. He made a terrific 14-yard throw down the left sideline to Aaron Dobson for a touchdown. He also hit Gronkowski for a 23-yard completion down the middle and would have had a wondrous 30-yard touchdown strike to Gronk if not for a holding penalty.

Pyro's take: Brady is wearing his Stetson hat and showed True Grit with his performance on Sunday. I would hope that Tom gets some attention to that hand so that he will be good to go next week. The light at the end of the tunnel for Brady is a bye week looming in week 10, which should help him and a lot of his teammates to get healthy.

Tom Brady sprains left knee

Brady limped off the field, favoring his left knee, but he returned to practice shortly thereafter. However, it didn’t last long, as the quarterback continued to keep a close eye on that left knee. He eventually walked off the field, talked with Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and left practice with the team trainer. Brady didn’t return.

Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn, who was rushing against Solder on the play, explained what happened after the practice session ended.

“You always have to stay away from the quarterback, but if you have a guy on his heels my instinct is to keep going. That’s what I did,” Clayborn said. “I bull-rushed [Solder] and apparently he tripped on Brady and fell on him.”

Pyro's take: Brady had an MRI and it came back negative, which is good news. Brady will be monitored, but they say it is not serious. Although, it has to be a concern to any Tom Brady owners, or those thinking about drafting him, as this is the same knee that he tore his ACL in 2008, which cost him the season.

Brady and his health are so important to all the offensive players on the Patriots, and any lost time in practice with his young receivers delays their growth. Brady has fallen down our rankings anyway, but this is another reason to not be high on him this year.

Pro Bowl: Brady replaced by Matt Schaub

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady pulled out of the Pro Bowl due to multiple nagging injuries to his finger, shoulder, and ribs. He was replaced on the AFC roster by NFL passing yardage leader (4,770 yards), Texans QB Matt Schaub.

Pyro's take: Schaub was somewhat of a snub in the first place, and since Philip Rivers also pulled out of the game, Schaub ends up getting the Pro Bowl start on Sunday.
Schaub actually had more yards, more TDs, and a better QB rating than Brady did on the year, and most importantly, his team beat Brady's Patriots head-to-head in the final week of the season.

Brady returns to full practice Thursday

After missing practice on Wednesday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder, ribs, finger) went through a full practice today and will start as usual this weekend.

Pyro's take: Brady plays against a weak Jacksonville pass D on Sunday, so make sure you have him, Randy Moss, and Wes Welker in your fantasy lineup.
