This is an interesting study, because much of Tom Brady's stats may indeed have been attained during "garbage time".
Ughhhh. How do the pats typically get to garbage time with a lead?
The pats d and their run game has never been great. They get to garbage time with a lead because brady and his wrs/tes make lots of great plays BEFORE garbage time...
There is a tremendous difference between a qb who gets some garbage time stats after kicking ass and a qb who get garbage time stats after getting his ass kicked.
CONTEXT IS EVERYTHING.
Damn the public school system and its forever declining results.
