I would put this the same order.

Do you think the Brady could lead this Packer team to the playoffs? I don't think so. Do you think the Pats are in the same position with Favre? Probably.
Brady is an excellent QB, but much of his success is due to the system and the players around him.
I agree 110% Couldn't have said it any better.

It is unfortunate that you are so jaded you can't even realize the truth.
Bird, I realize Brady is a GREAT QB. But don't you think the reason he is having a career year all of a sudden is because he has a few WRs that are pretty darn good? Brady works well in that system because he has weapons.
I agree with what DB said earlier, would Brady being playing as well if he played on GB right now? Would Brady have played so well over the years throwing to Billy Schroeder and Antonio Freeman?
