You think Tom Brady's offense was worse?
And if you think the Steelers had a better offense AND defense, then… the coach would be to blame.
No, you are. You chose that statistic.
Super Bowl 40: 22.6 QB rating. Worst of any winning Super Bowl QB. That's what I was thinking of.
And yes, Tom Brady's #1 receiver was who, Deion Branch? He probably doesn't even start on another team.
Let's look at Brady's super bowl offenses:
2001: #1 receiver was David Patten. A guy who never caught more than 61 passes in a season.
2003: #1 receiver was David Givens. A guy who caught 34 passes that year and was out of the league after 5 seasons.
2004: #1 receiver was a mixture between the mediocre Patten, Branch, or Daniel Graham. None of whom caught more than 44 passes that year,
Now let's look at Ben's super bowl offenses:
2005: #1 receiver was Hines Ward, a hall of famer, as well as Heath Miller.
2008: #1 receiver was Hines Ward, on top of Santonio Holmes and Heath Miller. All of which are better receiving options than any Brady had in his 3 Super Bowl wins.
Yeah...I'm taking the Steelers offensive weapons over the Patriots there...
