Tom Brady Cannot Be Killed By Conventional Weapons
Any doubt about the 2010 NFL MVP was erased very quickly last Sunday as the New England Patriots whipped the Chicago Bears in harsh winter weather. Tom Brady has not only put up numbers reminiscent of his record shattering 2007 campaign but he's also doing it against good teams.
And that, of course, is bad news for the Packers.
In the last five games the Patriots have beaten the Steelers, Colts, Lions, Jets and Bears. In that stretch Brady has thrown for 1,572 yards, 15 touchdowns and 0 interceptions while completing almost 72% of his passes. During a peak five game stretch in '07, Brady threw for 1,676 yards, 22 TDs, 2 INTs and a completion rate of 73.9%. Oh and as we saw last week, Brady thrives in cold weather. Here's The Brady Index through 14 games:
Tom Brady 284-425, 66.8 completion %, 29 TDs, 4 INTs
Wes Welker 80 receptions, 787 yards, 7 TDs
