Tom Brady Set For Another Postseason Disappointment

It’s looking as if  New England quarterback Tom Brady’s hard luck just might continue for another season.

He is arguably the NFL‘s best quarterback right now but if the Super Bowl escapes from Brady’s grasp again, it’s going to be another long offseason. With Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos out of the picture, it was thought that Brady should be able to slip by the Baltimore Ravens and go after another Super Bowl title.

Brady isn’t having that bad of a game, but has only taken his team to the end zone once. Meanwhile, Joe Flacco has Baltimore in the end zone four times and a 28-13 lead.

It’s the case again where Baltimore, fueled on the Ray Lewis retirement scenario, seems to be coming up with the big plays at the right time.

Brady is not having a difficult time moving the ball. He’s finding plenty of targets out there with Aaron Hernandez, Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker leading the way.

But Brady hasn”t proven to be dominating against the Ravens’ defense. He’s starting to run out of time in a hurry. New England also has a better time of possession.

But they can’t get the touchdown when they need it.

If he loses the game, Brady’s stock might diminish somewhat, which would be unfortunate considering all he’s done. Ray Lewis’ stock would rise.

We can’t have it both ways. But Lewis’ last game coming in the Super Bowl would be an obvious headline grabber. But Brady was hoping to draw Super Bowl attention one more time. It doesn’t look like it this season.
