The Brady v. NFL lawsuit has been settled, according to court documents filed by the Minnesota District Court.
NFL Labor

Settlement of the antitrust lawsuit filed by various NFL players is the second step to getting football back in 2011 -- now all that remains is recertification of the players as a union and the collective bargaining of the various remaining issues.

The court was advised of settlement in the matter via a telephone conference that took place on Tuesday morning and featured various attorneys for the respective sides.

Yes, this may explain why a certain couple of players -- Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson -- decided to sign their tenders and head into camp.

WOW, my kid really has a chance of making it after reading all the foolish comments on this board! Brady is a puke and we all know it. I can't stand Farve, but he is far less arrogant than Brady (with far less around him). As NE talent dies, so will Brady.

Aer you drunk or just stupid? What the hell does that have to do with anything? The ref's never lost anything  ( ok, the hall of fame game ) so why the hell would they be pissed with Brady or Manning? Your a moron!!!!!!

interesting point - let's see how many ref calls the pats get.  That should keep them out of the super bowl.  Guess Manning won't be there either.

The system is based on cheating and that is well known. How many Superbowls have the Patriots won since being caught cheating?

That's a stupid statement only buffoons on these boards make..... they got caught "cheating" something like in week 3?  They proceeded to win every game after that with their only loss being in the Superbowl on the flukiest play I've ever seen in a superbowl in my life. The Giants beat them because the Pats couldn't cheat? Are you serious moron?  The next season this team won 11 games without their starting qb.... not bad.  You want them to win it every year but that's impossible.

Brady is not as mediocre as some fans would claim, and not a god as others would have you believe.

Brady is every bit as incredible as his stats and rings say he is.   People need to stop overanalyzing things.  Nobody knows how a superstar would have done on a bad team, who they would have surrounded him with, etc.   The only thing you can judge somebody by is the RESULTS that player has had... any player, not just Brady.  

Brady's numbers are amazing and he has 3 rings and 4 sb appearances.  That's AWESOME and hall of fame worthy.  I don't care what he would have done on the Lions or Raiders or any other team that has struggled.   None of that matters at all...   That kind of talk is for rival fans that hate each other's teams.... just ridiculous talk.

Brady is product of a system. Put him in Detroit and let us see how much "greatness" we see. The system is based on cheating and that is well known. How many Superbowls have the Patriots won since being caught cheating?

So much of this Tom Brady debate is answered by common sense and stuff we all know already.

Yes, Brady is a much better QB on a solid team than he would be on a team without very good coaching and a very good level of overall supporting talent. This is true for all QBs.

Yes, Brady is talented enough that his numbers would still have been good on a weak team - he probably would have been one of the team's few stars.

Yes, Brady would not likely have 3 Super Bowl rings had he been the Lions starting QB over the last 10 years.

You could say the same thing about any very good QB.

So bottom line... the coaching and the supporting players have a lot to do with how far you go as a QB, and the QB has a lot to do with how far the team goes. The greatest QB ever could not raise a bad team to a Super Bowl title without a lot of other very good players making contributions. Great supporting players can certainly carry a mediocre QB to a title. We've seen all of this numerous times.

Brady is not as mediocre as some fans would claim, and not a god as others would have you believe.

To therealnick:  You have very little class.  You say you can respect other teams, and then come out with racist, hating drivel like this?  You're an ass, and should be taken off the board.  You choose this language as your first post - are you even a teen yet?  Go to bed without super!
