    Brady was the 10th most hit qb in the league last year so what you said is actually the opposite of what really happens. In fact, Green Bay and NO registered less QB hits considering they pass just as much.

    It's all just BS when you get down to it. People love to complain but the stats don't bear out what people think in their minds.

    In 2010 NE was 31st in QB hits...true, but there were also zero roughing calls against Brady....

    People want to believe what they want to believe. People go to magic shows to get fooled, that doesn't mean that it's really magic.
    Thank you for that.


    It's a combination of selective memory and confirmation bias.

Watch some Pats games and tell me if they don't get the best whistle in the NFL. Quality, not quantity. When there is a break to be had or a call that can go either way, it usually breaks in favor of the Pats.

    I do agree with that, I hope that trend continues.
