You have a reading comprehension problem my friend.....I've never said that the Pats would be as successful as they are now when Brady retires.

I said they will have a decent shot at making the playoffs because they won 11 games without Brady before.

I also said I am enjoying the ride while it lasts.

BTW Unlike your Cowboys fan friend I won't change allegiance to my team if they stop winning. I was a fan of the Patriots when they were the laughing stock of the NFL.

+1 Any QB change is a crapshoot... Brady was totally unheralded until he replaced Drew Bledsoe and started winning and will likely become one of the all-time greats. On the other hand, many of the next best thing QB have flamed out (remember Ryan Leaf?). You never know. Garoppolo could be the next Brady or could be the next flame out. Probably the latter as numerous Brady backups have moved into starting roles and been fairly lackluster... so as Corporateburnout says... enjoy the ride while we can.

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Again, they made the playoffs last time without Brady because they had a team so good that it went 16-0 the year before. They aren't even close to that good anymore. They had a 5 game drop-off when he was injured that next season. That's how good he is.

You know hes that good so you cant have it both ways. If hes so good that he boosts a team by 5 extra wins, then when hes gone the team will lose 5 more games. Of course its not always going to be exactly 5 games but it will be close. Even if they dropped off by 3 games this season they would've been 9-7 and missed the playoffs.
