I sat down to watch last night’s New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins game still basking in the glow of the Ravens 35-7 dismantling of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I was especially proud of Joe Flacco. He was almost flawless on Sunday. Surveying the field, seemingly always finding the right guy. He got the monkey off his back in a big way. It can no longer be said that Flacco can’t beat the Steelers when Ben Roethlisberger is at the helm. Anyway, I was all proud of Joe when Tom Brady did THAT last night. 517 yards passing and 4 TDs. He wasn’t playing a directional school or a small college looking for a cash grab. It was an NFL opponent in their house. That’s why Brady will go down as one of the all-time greats.
