Article says Tom Brady is a weak play this week...

I love how you are trying to tell me that stats don't tell the story, yet are coming up with this ridiculous 5 INT/1 TD in the last two games line. HE tossed 4 INTs and no TDs versus Indy. This is Green Bay. It's a new week and a new game. One bad game does not equal a trend.

Edit: Sorry that wasn't you with the stats, you can disregard that last rant. But I really think that that two game total being thrown around is really misleading.I also noticed that "last two games at Gillette" comment in addition to the statline. But they play at GB this weekend?

Home- 5g, 103/179/1079/6/6 (57.5%, 216/1.2/1.2)

Road- 4g, 77/125/975/9/3 (61.5%, 244/2.25/.75)


PS: 255/1/1, 4/21/0 is a very respectable fantasy statline. Tom Brady outscored Peyton Manning last week.

I think this game has shootout written all over it, and I wouldn't hesitate to start Favre or Brady. Brady didn't have a great game last week, but it wasn't horrible either. I think he'll bounce back at Lambeau, and Kensat's prediction of 275/2 sounds about right.

Unless you have Peyton Manning, start him. He is only a second tiered QB start this week though, so please temper your expectations on how he might do. Good luck.

Sorry, but I refuse to believe that Brady will continue to struggle. Especially when he's going up against the worst pass defense in the NFL. It's a sneaky bit of advice from Yahoo, but one I'd pass on taking to seriously.

I dunno, apart from last year, Brady was never a great fantasy QB. And both he and his receivers have been inconsistent this year. Also, Brady has never played in Lambeau field, and may have to get adjusted to the wind. If I had someone like Brees, Romo, Kitna, I'd consider starting them ahead of Brady. People need to stop living in the past, Brady is not the top 5 QB he was drafted as this year. He's dropped to about 3rd tier with guys like Farve, Delhomme, even McNair.

I wouldn't listen to any article offering advice other than from right here at the Cafe. :-b Has Brady had a couple bad games? yes. Has he also been one of the more consistent numbers guys over the past few years?Yes I wouldn't sit Brady for any reason personally.

btw, al "pass interference" harris is not that good, I don't hold him in too high of a regard.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Wow. Adjusted to the wind in Lambeau? That one takes the cake for overcoaching. Brady's been playing in the league a while... won an AFC Championship during a blizzard, remember that one?
