[QUOTE=Charlie Brown;4360836]Brady is simply Great and I just wonder what would have happened had we had him under center during these last ten years......:([/QUOTE]
I really believe players, especially QB's, are very much a product of their surroundings. The talent level between the best and worst QB's is really not that wide, but their surroundings in coaches and players really can be the difference. Most recently I look at Aaron Rodgers and wonder if he would be as good as he is if he went to SF and not Alex Smith. I wonder if any of us would even know who Steve Young was had he remained in TB. With Tom Brady, I really feel the situation was perfect for him. ME was the place for him to be with the coaches and players he had around him. If he ended up drafted by the Jets who knows what would have happened, but somehow I doubt he would have had the success he did with the likes of Herm Edwards and crew guiding him.
It's eerie to think that if not for a miracle throw/catch by Manning/Tyree, and the very reliable Wes Welker dropping a ball from Brady he usually catches, that Belichick/Brady are likely five time Super Bowl Champions. That would bother any player, especially a competitor like Tom Brady.
