  1. Max will make talk about the dumbass things to downgrade tom Brady…tom brady is the one reason why bill belichick got his rings and wins. Tom brady IS the system. And one thing that max don't understand is that the AFC east has a better .500 than other division. It is the Patriots that makes the AFC east look weak, oh and the Patriots got 11 wins with cassel makes you think that belichick don't need Brady? There are many great QB that when they get injured or leave the team that team still won many games. Like Joe Montana. The 49ers still won alot of games and a Superbowl without Joe. Same with Favre, without him they still won a superbowl and alot of wins with Favre. Same with john elway and peyton Manning. Even dan Marino. Roger stabach. So stop making excuses maxm

  2. I'll go ahead and say I like Ryan Hollins and he should stay on the show just to be criminally and painfully contradictory to everybody else on the show. That promotes a more exciting and really puts the true depth everyone but Ryan's sports knowledge onto display. I love to dislike Ryan Hollins.

  3. Max always saying they only need to win “1 playoff home game” he forgets they have to play 16 games before that & 10 of them outside of the afc east that Max says sucks, that’s 10 games that every opponent is playing you like it’s their super bowl, so the patriots are getting everyone’s best shot & they still go 13-3,12-4 every year

  4. How many playoff games did they win in 2008?
    How many playoff teams did they play when Brady was out those four games? One (the Bills). They lost.
    Before Brady 5-11 then 0-2

    The defense has been mediocre for 10 years. The offense carries the defense most years. Bellichick is not the offensive guru. That would be Brady and McDaniels. Every QB but Brady decline rapidly with bad weapons. Brady always makes do. That is Brady not Bellichick.
    As for the AFC East take New England out of the equation. Against other opponents not named New England they are on on with other teams because most teams do not have QBs either. They have bad records because New England is a juggernaut. How does New England do against teams with winning records? Well, gee they win those too.

  5. It would be a major concern if Julian Edelman made his real value around $10 million per season. With superstar receivers like OBJ or Amari Cooper, making around $20 million (18 or 19 million per season), Edelman should make about $10 million. Bill Belichick is a magician.

  6. Worthless topic. A specific player's missing part of training camp doesn't warrant a discussion. He won't missing any games. The premise of this topic is ludicrous and disingenuous.

  7. HEY JULIAN HOWS THE PEDs?? FUNNY HES SORRY CUZ HE ONLY GOT CAUGHT!! LOOK AT BARRY BONDS WITH THE CLEAR. THE JUICERS ARE ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE TESTING. LOOK AT TOM BRADYS TRAINER? HES AS SKETCHY AS HELL.

  8. belichick had 1 winning season before tom brady entered the league by the way. guess that just goes under the radar everytime we have this belichick brady discussion
