yeah you can't really compare stats because the rules have changed so much. Remember the NFL changed the rules to make it easier to score, so that games would be more fun to watch.

I know a LOT of people will say I'm wrong about Brady, and maybe I am...but I just haven't seen anything that puts him in Montana's class, other than the number of rings on his fingers.

That's a pretty strong reason. A team might luck up and win one Super Bowl with out a great quarterback, but not 3. And at his age, he has a pretty good chance to have a ring on each finger of one hand before he retires. BTW, I'm not a Patriot fan. Not a big NFL fan for that matter. But do enjoy the playoffs.

Medit, do you think that the Yanks should have let A-Rod go and instead signed or traded for Santana?

The Mets made the best move of the off season by getting Santana.

Somehow the Mets doesn't feel like a NY team (if you are from NE, you'll know what that means). That's in spite of bringing the 1986 heartbreak to Red Sox Nation.

Santana over A-Rod? Hard to compare. A pitcher that starts every 5th day vs. a 5 tool everyday player. I DO know that the Mets got a great pitcher and should be very hard to beat in 2008. At least in the Senior Circuit.

Ha, thx
She's 26" high with the base. Believe it or not its cast in plaster, but painted with bronze paints so there's pretty much no way to tell the difference, (but a heckuvalot cheaper! -- lbym meets the sculpture world...)
