The Denver Broncos are going to the Super Bowl and the New England Patriots are not. That’s a simple statement that doesn’t quite sum up the AFC Championship game that we saw on Sunday afternoon in Denver, but Tom Brady’s late game face palm and thousand mile stare certainly does.

CBS cameras captured Brady’s face palm as well as his disgusted stare as time ran off the clock in the AFC Championship game and the Patriots season.

Before the game, Dan Marino noted in an interview with Brady that it’s been ages since he’s won a Super Bowl, as he’s 0-2 in his last two trips. So while the face palm perfectly sums up the AFC Championship game, it also sums up the last half decade of Brady’s career.

Suddenly, the wunderkind who could do no wrong in his first trips to the postseason suddenly can’t seem to win when it matters most.

    Tom Brady is the greatest QB of his era. He’s better than Peyton Manning despite all the bs. being sold by sports journalists & the league.
    Those fools dismiss championships as mediocrity. Its not Brady’s fault that his coach can’t can’t win the big games anymore. Belichick’s coaching & judgment as general manager was a disastrous. Why didn’t he order the DC to take away Peyton’s top receivers with double coverage? Why does he choose to surround an aging pocket passing QB with a sorry, sub-par O-line year after year? What can be gained by opening your aging QB up to unblocked defenses? Why does want constant sacks, injuries, more turnovers & concussions for his aging QB? There was a time when Brady was the accurate passer now he’s not which means he needs good & great receivers—not sorry ones. Belichick knows Gronk can’t finish a season and that Hernandez was in jail. Why didn’t he get a tight-end(s) in free agency? C’mon Belichick lost two super bowls because he couldn’t out think Kevin Killdrive & a senile Tom Coughlin. “Let ‘em score!” He told his defense to allow the opponent to score. What’s with that? The NYG won 2 super bowl thanks to the bungling of Belichick. NE’s O-line was ravaged in the trench war making the passing game & the running game impossible. The O-line has been smashed before by several teams but this was ignored by Belichick. Bill Belichick can’t win a super bowl anymore he’s done. New England’s time is over its opportunities have been squandered by the coach. This team needed to hire a real general manager who will have to rebuild the defense, the 0-line, the offense & the special team. With the rise of the college coaches in the NFL the quality of coaching is no longer dismal. The sun has set for New England under Belichick. Like Peyton Manning, Bill Belichick is overrated.

    Peyton is better than Brady. I’m sorry. Even at the top of his game, Brady’s records were beaten by Manning. Period. Brady also never ran an audible like Manning can. Brady would have been better if he could control his team like Manning does.
