That throw was inhuman but alas, still not enough.

That pass to Gronk was catchable by first half standards.

A lot less than you think.

Which isn't a knock on Brady. He was smart enough to know Tampa Bay was the best situation available (certainly way better than New England) and took it.

Top of my head TB, Buffalo, Miami (with all their draft and spending capital), SF, both LA teams, Baltimore, Pitt, Saints, Broncos, and Indy?

i hate tom brady and i had to turn the game off in the 3rd quarter because it was too frustrating, but it's pretty insane that he took that kind of risk in this point of his career and immediately won another super bowl. it seems like the odds of it going terribly wrong were way higher, but here we are again.

I'm not sure about Miami or Denver, and maybe not Indy, but all the others, yeah, there'd be a chance. And who am I to say he couldn't do it with those 3

Why not the Bears? Playoff team even with stinky QB play much of the year, mediocre the rest of the time. Seems like Brady would be exactly what the team is lacking.

The Bears don't have the line and offensive weapons to compete for a SB even with Brady. Maybe in 2018 with that defense but not the defense that played in 2020.

No, I just am not really into pop. My fiancé is, however, so I do hear some of her stuff. I honestly cannot tell the difference between some new music she listens to and British new wave from the early 80’s.

With a QB who basically knows every defensive play call and gets the ball out in a flash, maybe the Bears OL wouldn't be so horsefeathers. He does a lot of the work for them. His OL is almost never unaware of a pass rusher or where the general pressure is gonna come from. And with a QB that rarely turns the ball over, constantly moves the chains, and gets the ball in the endzone frequently, then the defense gets a lot more rest as well. The defense plays with a lead more often, the DC can be a little more aggressive and not have to play the bend but don't break style as much, which tends to lead to prolonged drives and exhaustion as the game is winding down.

And the answer to "why not the Bears?" is always, ALWAYS, "because they're the horsefeathering Bears." Come on, people.

Oh, it’s fine. Again, not my thing, but it’s ok. It just sounds exactly like some early 80’s movie montage where the high school class is building a robot to help with their big science project.
