That uncalled penalty allowed him to score a TD that erased our 21 point comeback in that humid pot they call a dome!
But, Niners, who are more interesting, or falcs,... machts nichts,... we bang people in the mouth!

Before people start declaring Tom Brady the GOAT, I think those interested should look at his stats from his last fifteen playoff games. Of course, it should be noted that his first nine playoff appearances were all wins, resulting in three rings. Remember, this status is by no means intending to insult Brady or the Patriot's organization in team. It is solely for conversational and educational purposes only.
Over the past fifteen playoff games, the Patriot's record is 8 wins and 7 losses. Tom Brady's stats: 363-583 (62.3 percent completion percentage), 3,998 passing yards, 31 touchdowns, 19 interceptions.
Twelve of those fifteen games were fought in Gillette Stadium. These games were fought over the course of seven post-seasons, four of which the Patriots were either the number one or two seed and heavily favored over their opponents.
Consider the 8-7 record as lasting essentially the duration of a season (15 games versus 16). With that, we can compare Brady's "playoff season" performance to his regular season performance. Brady's regular season interception average is ten per season. That figure (19) almost doubles during his "playoff season".
So all of these stats raise questions. What is the cause of Brady's diminishing playoff performances? How good is he really?
My conclusion: A combination of early playoff success and a good career win percentage during the regular season has created high expectations for Tom Brady and his team. The kind of expectations that can weigh on a man's shoulders. So to put it simply, Brady has not lived up to his expectations over the past fifteen playoff appearances. The question is, were the expectations placed on him too high? Surely, if he is the GOAT, then no expectations are too great. But alas, Tom Brady is not the goat.

" Your wrong, Steve Young was 9-0 in 1994 which also surpasses Flacco (http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth).
No he's not wrong. The article says AT LEAST 8, which means 8 or more. 9 is at least 8..."
Yes it is wrong. It's not wrong in the AT LEAST 8 part of it, but in the first paragraph it says Flacco TRAILS ONLY MONTANA... IF Young had 9 TDs with 0 INTs then Flacco trails Steve Young as well - not just Montana. I dont know if that stat is correct, but assuming it is then it was incorrect. Flacco trails more than just Montana
