    Someone complied stats for fumbles for the last 5 years. The NFL average is 1 in 105 plays. Almost all teams are within 21 of that number. New England has been way out in the stratosphere, almost no fumbles with one in every 187 offensive plays. This change in there results happened very abruptly between 2006 and 2007. So, either they are playing on an entirely different plane, in a different universe from ever other pro, or maybe- do you think? It's logical to believe they've been routinely deflating since 2007, giving much better ball control.

    Meanwhile, the NFL is more concerned with the dude who won't do normal press conferences, deciding how to punish him, and hoping everyone overlooks deflategate.

    I'm still depressed from the commercials. Truth be told, I didn't have a preference for either team.

    ...going to drown myself in the bathtub with my Always pads. But no worries, Nationwide is here to protect me. Aye yay yay.

    That "analysis" has been largely debunked as being a classic case of you can get statistics to say whatever you want when you cherry pick your data.

    Mark Twain said it best. "There are lies, damned lies and statistics"

    Of course I am sure Patriots fans will be hearing about that viral post for years despite the fact it has been proven to be biased and deliberately misleading, because facts aren't what the lynch mob wants.

    First weekend without football, going to hear a lot about Brian Williams, and Obama Christian Crusaders.

    Let's not forget about the pilot who shut down the wrong engines, after 5 stall warnings...

    That is a lot of stall warnings, I only hear it once, and I drop the nose...so much for letting the air of of a football...and light hot air...

    It was still a good game...Colts will win next year....with Luck...

    Yes, it was a good game. Credit NE for the win.

    One of the most exciting SuperBowls ever!

    However, Brady is NOT the greatest...but a top tier QB.

    NE first SuperBowl was only achieved when "Fumble Tom" was called for a incomplete pass against Oakland in playoffs or NE loses!

    Luck....yep, is need on each team to win SuperBowl!!

    True Story:

    Did you know Tom Brady only became a starter because the "Tuck Rule" was called AGAINST the Patriots. Let me explain.
    The "Tuck Rule" was instituted in 1999

    Week 2 2001 vs the Jets in the final moments of the 1st half Vinny Testaverde fumbles and it is recovered by the Pats, but tuck rule is called. Jets get a field goal to tie the game. In the 4th quarter Drew Bledsoe is scrambling to get some extra yardage in an attempt to retake the lead, and is absolutely destroyed by Mo Lewis, causing internal bleeding. Tom Brady has been the Patriots starter since. If the tuck rule hadn't been enforced earlier in the game Bledsoe would have been handing off to a RB in in effort to kill the clock and Tom Brady would probably be a little known backup because the Patriots had signed Bledsoe to a $100+ million contract before the season.

    It's hard for me to say NFL QB is the greatest as LUCK plays a part.
    Montana with 4 SB rinsg had numerous great players around him: Rice, Taylor, CLark, and even coach Walsh.
    If a coach decides he will WIN with a specific player who gets majority fo chances then that player has best chance to win MVP and become teh greatest.

    Strongest thrower - Brett Favre or John Elway
    Most Accurate - Marino
    Quickest Release - Marino
    Best Timing plays - Manning
    Best athlete - Elway
    Smartest - Anyone named NOT Bradshaw who has 4 SB rings


    Brady is a top tier QB who is a winner and does what his team needs to win. Excellent 4th qtr QB with many elite wins.
    However, Brady is as slow as a slug and minimal quickness yet was considered a baseball prospect.

    Brady has won with a high trun over of players but he is NOT a great athlete but a great QB.

    Much like you I think it is being obtuse to name a single "greatest" QB, considering so much has changed.

    Montana, Elway, Marino spent most or all of their careers in an era without free agency or salary cap, teams were able to create juggernauts and rarely did any of the teams that succeeded in that lose a lot. See the '49ers, Giants, Bears, Redskins of the '80's.

    Manning and Brady have benefitted immensely from the advent of passer friendly rules, which have skewed the statistics league wide. A subpar QB today puts up numbers that an elite QB of the '80's did. Now that isn't to say it lessens the accomplishments of today's QB class as it is a self-perpetuating fact. As passing became easier, more offenses shifted to a pass first mentality. It just means statistics need to be taken with a grain of salt. The advanced statistics using "Value over Average" and the like do a decent job of comparing but don't tell the whole story.

    Personally I advocate a "Mt. Rushmore" method of ranking greats from different era's. It allows a prior-era QB whose wide receivers were being criminally assaulted every play to be put on the same level someone Peyton Manning who purposely underthrows balls to draw PI on a DB who has perfect coverage on a WR who just stops and lets the DB run into him.
