Steve Young experienced success after Montana, does that make Montana a "system quarterback"? This is so silly

Yeah. Just like I don't care if bird or magic is better.  I care about the Celtics being better than the lakers. I guess I could have said, " I could care less."

I suspect that if Jimmy and Jacoby were throwing to Givens, Gaffney, Patten, Fauria, Wiggins and the other relatve flotsam that he's had in championship seasons, they may not have looked as good.  With Bennett, Gronk, Edelman, Amendola, Hogan and Mitchell, this is as deep and versatile (all great blockers) a receiving group that BB has ever assembled.  I cant wait to see what the GOAT is able to do with that lineup and a solid defense.

TP

This team is stacked right now, aside from the mediocre offensive line.

Those early Pats title teams weren't anything special offensively, Brady elevated sub-par talent when it counted. Russell Wilson is in a similar situation in Seattle.

The system just has to not involve an idiot like Lloyd Carr trying to replace him with Drew Henson because Drew might go play for the Yankees.

Belichick had one playoff appearance and a 37-45 record with the Browns and a 5-13 record with the Patriots before Tom Brady became a starter. Fact. In comparison Pete Carroll went 28-23 with Bledsoe and the Pats and got canned. IMO Belichick was on the same trajectory, and if he hadn't drafted Brady, he likely would have been fired a long time ago.

TB12 has succeeded with every OC he has had.

Tom helped create the "system" we have now - he is a hard worker, and you can bet he has major input and insight into what to do, and what works.

Belichick has always been a great coach, and has also become a fantastic talent evaluator. Garoppolo is a great prospect IMO, and could be a future Pro Bowler. BB has grown and improved, and has filled in the cracks after some earlier poor drafting that led to some very bad defensive play in the 2008-2012 seasons. He deserves a ton of credit. But without Brady I don't think he lasts long enough to get as good as he is.

No. The Patriots are renown for having a different game plan each week. When Brady first started he was, but every QB starting out has game plans tailored to what they know or can do at that point in time (See Thursday night's game.) Brady knows everything at this point in his career.

with the recent successes of various QBs in Bellichek's system is Tom mostly a product of the system?

All QBs are system QBs.

And if a QB decides he's just gonna wing it like maybe Brett Farve they're usually a terrible QB

Totally agree with this.

Also, while I love that the Pats have won the last three games, let's keep a bit of perspective about these things. It's a long season, Pats have a long way to go.
Celtics fan for life.

Tom Brady is a system QB the same way that Tim Duncan is a system PF.
