I don't think it has anything to do with his wife, or Tom worrying about his legacy or any of that. I think the simple fact of the matter is that the Pats matchup terribly to the Giants. The Giants are built to beat the Pats. If the Pats were a smashmouth running team they would beat the Giants because the Giants are built to do two things; make opposing QBs uncomfortable and win close games late and the Pats are built around TB and passing. The way to beat the Pats is to pressure TB and nobody does that better than the Giants.
Honestly the Giants are the one team in the league right now that I believe would beat NE about 8 out of ten times.
This aggression will not stand, man!
With Brady I just see him putting up huge numbers and beating the snot out of teams when it doesn't matter and then looking normal when it does. He had a decent game, but he didn't look unstoppable as he has at times over the last few years. Be that his competition, his focus, or whatever, he just isn't as clutch as he used to be.
Pats should have won. They had NY right where they wanted. If Brady had placed that ball three inches lower to Welker it would have been game over. He had plenty of time to do it too.
I still think it's as much about Belicheck as it is Brady.
I agree with WTE. If Welker catches the wide open pass the Giants dont win. Simply comes down to making the necessary plays in the end and who had the ball last. If Welker catches the pass they are at the Giants 11 or 12 yd line and can eat more clock as NY only had one TO left. At worst NE settles for a fg to make it 20-15 with maybe a minute left at best.
