Brady, Dolphins defense not doing Tony Sparano any favors
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 2, 2011, 3:12 PM EST


Tom Brady worked longer than many folks expected Sunday, and left with a lead big enough to ensure the Patriots’ 14th victory.
Brady was replaced by backup Brian Hoyer midway through the third quarter with the score 31-0 Patriots. Hoyer actually played a series in the first half too, but Brady closed out the second quarter and led the team on a touchdown drive to start the third.

Hoyer promptly threw a 42-yard touchdown to Brandon Tate to make the score 38-0. Brady finished with two touchdowns on the day, making him the 6th player in NFL history to throw a touchdown every game in a 16-game season.

Barring a surprise return, Brady should finish the season with 36 touchdowns, four interceptions, and an MVP award.

A desultory performance on Sunday by Chad Henne should further help ensure the Dolphins look to replace him next year. And Miami’s performance will make it even tougher for owner Stephen Ross to keep coach Tony Sparano.

Has any of QBs thrown for a TD this long this year?

He has gotten worse over the last month. QB's of the future should at show improvment. At this rate, we won't win a game next year with at the helm.

Henne is horrible, but he is just one big part of a dreadful puzzle on Miami's offense

Anyone that thinks Miami has an answer at QB is delusional. Hoyer is better than any of the guys we got taking snaps. They're just awful. Thigpen shows promise. Henne is shot and may be out of the NFL next year.

He does? Hoying looks better coming off the bench than our QBs do.

Yep, but a big part of the puzzle is a QB.

you can't possibly be making an honest comparison?..

NE's coaching staff gives their quarter backs a chance to succeed with game planning and quality coaching..

Sparano needs a good showing to keep his job and he can't even pick a qb and stick with him..

we just watched outcoaching 101...............................again!!



sigh

just goes to show I was right about it being a system thing in New England.
Hoyer steps in and the offense doesnt miss a beat.

Brady is just like Montana. The system in place made them absolutely elite. When others had to come in, they also excelled.

It's one game vs. a lowly Dolphins squad that was already thinking about vacation. I dunno that it would be legitimate to start saying Hoyer could take over and play an entire 16 game season to perfection. That's a tad presumptuous. There's no doubt their system is better, but that's a trait of a successful team anyways. You can't be successful without a good system. Goes without saying.

The "system" is quite simple. Unlike most OC's who have no balls and try and run the ball on early downs most of the time, Belichick plays the odds that a pass on first down is a higher percentage than a run. Ever since Brady has been in there he's been in the shotgun 80-90% of the plays. No other team outside of Indy has that kind of approach and both whether injuries well. Miami is 17 down and our OC is call handoffs to the backs in a standard running formation. At least have the guts to run it out of the spread if you're going to do that. Clueless, ball-less, timid approach to offense which has plagued this team since Marino retired.
