Tom Brady: The Smush Parker Years

During Thursday Night Football, I joked that Tom  Brady was acting like Joe Jackson whenever his receivers dropped passes.

Last night was proof that as great as Brady is, he can't make any receiver great. Bill Belichick should have led a search party to find his receivers' missing hands. We've seen this before. Remember Kobe Bryant's silent protest in 2006 during the second half of Game 7 in their first round series against the Phoenix Suns? Lakers point guard Smush Parker was the epitome of that team's paucity of talent surrounding the league's top player. Last year, Bryant called playing with Parker, "the worst," and that he shouldn't have been in the NBA.

Tom Brady, meet your Smush Parkers. Smush(es), meet Tom.
