The Brady 6 Open Thread
Gotta love all this Mich publicity over the last month or so. Fab five doc, etc....
I was JUST thinking about that palazzola.... Great(?) press for us. Hearing Lloyd Carr talk about Brady reminds me what a great coach he was, all things considered. I can only hope we hear Hoke talking about our players in the same way in the future. Telling the Patriots guy that he will never regret drafting Tom Brady? Priceless...
Haha, my first thought was that Carr kind of screwed the pooch that year with Henson. He seemed worried that Henson would bolt if he didn't start him. But I agree on the larger point that Carr was a great coach.
What is the brady 6?
Ask your mom.
An actress or a super model?
Rationalize it, and blame other people.
Just admit you were wrong. Brady lived in the apartment below mine, and I always rooted for him in the "I like them both" battles, but I thought I was ranking him above everybody else by just thinking he's be a 10 year back-up in the League. I didn't see it coming.
Isn't Mariuci an MSU guy? Making us look bad. Saying the coaches didn't talk up Brady.
But buddies with Izzo when they were there together. Mooch was one of the most overrated/hyped coaches of all time. Mediocre wherever he went.
Thanks. I thought I remember that he almost coached at MSU
Anytime there was an opening at MSU, his name came up.
His point was pretty correct though. He had to split time with a freshman even though he was a 10 game winning 5th year senior. I can see how that doesn't inspire confidence. But still, I feel like his game film from college was still impressive enough that they should have given him a harder look.
They should have called Carr like the Pats did instead of guessing why we replaced him with Henson
... after that game, I remember thinking that this guy is going to be a steal if he only gets a chance. Thank god he got that chance and with a team that really was a perfect fit for him.
Named "Spergon Wynn" over Brady, but I give credit to the guys like him among the "6" who were willing to be interviewed. Classy.
But Tee, at least in his 30 second soundbytes, seemed like a great guy too. His last lines about his kid was cool. And I was amused how they mentioned he could win a National Championship for Tennessee after Peyton couldn't. (Who incessant Woodson-Brady teasing aside, seems like a pretty good guy too).
On ESPNClassic at 9, the Deuce at 10, again on the Deuce Sunday at 4, 4/23 at 1, 4/24 at 9.
I love Tom Brady. There's just not anything about him anyone can point to as a reason they don't like him unless it's 100% out of jealousy.
I stand by my statement. Every man is secretly jealous of the hair. I know I am.
Brady isn't one of them, because our staff is jealous of his hair?
(I can kid, because I love).
I hope he is one of the 300. I think this year will be special, hopefully the lock out will provide them with a chance to come back to Michigan.
He's pretty much perfect, except dancing at Carnival
And have been a Bills fan over the same time, and your measure for disliking people is kicking Buffalo's ass, then you must hate everybody.
A Lions fan takes that attitude, and he hates humanity.
However I think people forgot about the baby with Bridget Moynihan who he subsequently dumped to date Giselle. I can see why people could fault him for that.
Lloyd calling Chris Redman's girlfriend's house. Priceless.
Than Tommy. I love it.
I should have had him buy me a new car rather than have his dad cover the damages from backing his truck into my car. The mirror was never the same.
AHHH MILLEN AHHHHHHH
It's not your fault.
I didn't really expect so much Henson in this. I forgot how freakin' hyped he was.
The Henson stuff kind of bummed me out. It's unfortunate that his pro career(s) didn't work out, because he was a really great college player and he's not remembered for that. He's remembered as the hyped freshmen who Brady had to split playing time with, but in fact his junior year was one of the best ever for a QB at Michigan. Didn't Henson make Brian's 'All Carr Team' as QB? It's sad to see that even he thinks he should have just picked baseball or football and just stuck with whichever. I think anyone who was a fan of that '01 team still wonders how good it could have been had he stuck around for his senior year. Alas...
I did think it was a really good film. Tom Brady's story really is incredible - hearing him talk about all these experiences, how much doubt he faced is really humbling. If I only worked as hard at my job... Lots of teams/players played the 'no one believed in me' card and it can be kind of grating as a fan. Not in this case - it's continuously a joy to see how much better he gets and to hope that one day UM can lay claim to developing the undisputed greatest QB of all time.
Takes the blame.
The thing is, Brady didn't cry b/c it was painful to get picked #199. He cried b/c he remembers his parents supporting him through what WAS a tough time. How can you blame the guy for that?
Losing that undefeated season will scar me for life....unless Tom wins 2 more.
I wish Drew had concentrated on football...(or one sport, but I think football) because I DO think he could have been good.
The draft obviously still drives Brady.
And Matt Millen? Shut up.
While they certainly have their uses, and can tell you thinks, you can't put football on a chart or graph. Because it's hard to measure heart.
Wow. The first sentence on the upcoming Sportscenter: "Is Locker the heir apparent in New England?"
After 1 hr talking about Brady's heart...good luck buddy. 34 means nothing to him.
That was great. I'm not sure, after playing and being successful at Michigan, how Carr didn't get more than one call about him.
How did we get 36 comments on this thread without anyone mentioning Giovanni Carmazzi's goats? After that nugget, I think I would tune in to a documentary on Carmazzi's life as a hermit goat herder... "The Carmazzi 5"
Completely forgot. If anyone has an online link it'd be appreciated.
