Brady lights up Dolphins

MIAMI -- You look at the Miami Dolphins defense and you see good cover corners. You see an elite pass rusher in Cameron Wake. You see big, strong down linemen, active inside linebackers and a top-notch coordinator.

That's why I picked them to be a playoff team.

Then you watch Tom Brady and the New England Patriots carve them to shreds and it make you wonder.

Are they any good?

Or is Brady just that good?

Brady played a game of pitch-and-catch with his receivers in leading the Patriots t a 38-24 victory Monday night at Sun Life Stadium. He stood in the pocket at times for what seemed like 10 minutes, picking apart a Miami secondary that had no answer for a receiving group that isn't exactly filled with burners. Brady threw for a career-best 517 yards, four touchdown passes -- one a 99-yard throw -- and seemed to barely break a sweat.

I still think Miami's defense will be fine against mortal quarterbacks.

On this night, they faced one of the all-time greats, and Brady got them again.

But the Dolphins should get some solace in knowing he's done this to a lot of defenses that think they've arrived. Just not as bad.

And if we are counting Championships by city in the last 10 years:

2001 - 2011 Yankees (1) , Mets, Rangers, Islanders, Jets, Giants (1), Knicks - (7 teams) = 2 Championships

2001 - 2011 Red Sox (2) , Bruins (1), Celtics (1), Patriots (3) - (4 teams) = 7 Championships

He just TOLD you Bobwalk, his team is the GIANTS. Did the EaglesSuck screenname not give it away? Sounds more like an Eagles hater to me, so don't flatter yourself buddy. You sound high and mighty with your rings, but if you guys went out and got your butts kicked every week, we'd be on you guys.

What's up with all the high yardage passing?  I mean how many QB's have thrown for 300 yards this week? Newton threw for more than 400 and Brady over 500.  All this and Peyton Manning wasn't even playing; just imagine what he might have done against these under practiced secondaries.  Isn't this exactly what the fans want? High scoring games and lots of yardage?

So Eagles Stink, your TEAM is the Giants, Saints and the Packers? Or is it really any team that is playing the Patriots? The only way you have any hope is to play the entire field against the Pat's! Yes the Jets beat us last year in the playoffs, but whan was the last time "your team" did anything?

I laughed my ass off at the guy who drafted Vick in the first round.  He swore up and down Vick was gonna crush this year.  I mentioned the fact that Vicks best year was worse than Bradys worst year.   I told him Vick averaged 17 TD's a year for 6 years in ATL.  But he knew.  He knew...   Thanks for knowing....
