43 TD passes (led NFL), 2nd most in his career
67.5 comp pct (2nd best in his career, I'm seeing a trend)
2nd in all pro voting to Toe Rogan (and likely 2nd in MVP voting to Throw Rogan)

I don't see a dip at all.
In fact, it's probably his 2nd or 3rd best season as a passer, and let's not overlook that as stacked as that offense was in September, it was far from stacked down the stretch.

As for the retirement. He's pissed that word got leaked, the person who leaked it is looking for employment, and he's now considering playing next year just out of spite. But the Arians factor will likely ultimately still cause him to retire. He can't stand Arians, and if Leftwich leaves, Arians claims he'll go back to play calling and Brady will be out of there.

Eh, not going to fight about Tom Brady again, that might be the single most boring thing that happens in this forum. I didn't know the stats, thanks for sharing them, it definitely does surprise me to see them compared to what I saw in the handful of games I watched, where his performance didn't seem anywhere near as impressive as other years.

But yes, absolutely the "retraction" is coming from being angry about the leak. He'll still retire.

There were a few more games this year than usual where Brady failed to elevate his team or was all around lackluster. We kept him in check, Indy and NE made him look average, the Rams had him locked down for 3 quarters and he was awful against the Saints.

He threw an astounding 42(!) times a game this season and his QB rating was inflated by a few games where he was absolutely incredible (Miami, Carolina, Atlanta). It definitely was a dip from last season though in terms of consistency. It was not the kind of season that should make a QB want to retire, but I'm not surprised that he's tired. 42 passes a game is stupid.

When comparing 2020 and 2021 stats, you also have to take into account that he was starting fresh with a new system. As a result, he had a somewhat slow start, though he wasn't bad in the first few weeks. In fact, it was quite impressive how well he performed. He had one really awful game against the Saints later in the season but was mostly very good last year.

I wonder if Brady was pissed because he wanted to give his own speech in which he passes the torch to Jordan Love.

Never expected Cincy to make it to the SB. Like I didn't expect ATL to make it to the World Series last year.

Overtime rules are still awful and this game doesn’t prove an argument in the other direction.

Counterpoint - Make it so each team gets a shot on offense no matter what. Then no one will complain about the coin anymore.

Counterpoint - with that OT, expect no changes to it this offseason.

Football is not just an offensive game. The rule is fine as is.

Also Cooper Kupp is not human.

At least no OT for this game. Rams' D stepped up big time at the end.

On paper it looks like it should be a fun, entertaining and competitive game.

It's going to need to be a good one to live up to the last 6 games the NFL has delivered. Been a hell of a playoffs so far.
