Brady tossed six straight incomplete passes at one point, and he couldn’t get the Patriots in the end zone on four tries from the 1 with the score tied in the third quarter. Still, he posted a passer rating of 99.0 on a night when he didn’t have star tight end Rob Gronkowski and leading rusher Sony Michel.BUY: 12: ‘The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption’ by Casey Sherman View comments Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown LATEST STORIES New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady walks to the sideline after his team was stopped on fourth down at the goal line by the Green Bay Packers during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, in Foxborough, Mass. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)Tom Brady didn’t have to beat Aaron Rodgers in only their second head-to-head matchup to prove he’s the best quarterback of all time.The GOAT did it, anyway.ADVERTISEMENT Rodgers is one of the best to play the game and he may be the “most talented,” but he doesn’t belong in the “greatest of all time” conversation. It’s Brady. Then Joe Montana. Peyton Manning deserves a mention. So does Drew Brees.Brady has eight Super Bowl appearances. He won his third regular-season MVP award last year at age 40 and he has four Super Bowl MVP awards in his trophy case. He’s still at the top of his game at 41, seven years older than Rodgers.Over 19 seasons, Brady has set numerous records and he notched another milestone against the Packers when he surpassed Manning for the most combination passing, rushing and receiving yards in the regular-season and playoffs.So while the Sunday Night Football crew enjoyed hyping the matchup and even got Michael Jordan involved by having the six-time NBA champion record a promo saying “the best way to settle this debate is to play it out head-to-head,” Brady already earned the title way before helping New England (7-2) to its sixth straight win.Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time and he’s still proving it every week.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Some considered that statement a slight against Brady. It’s not. Rodgers is immensely gifted with a strong, accurate arm and scrambling ability. He makes plays with his legs that Brady can’t. He makes throws few players ever could make, whether he’s on the run like the 24-yard pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling on a third-and-1 late in the third quarter, or if he’s flat-footed, falling down, throwing across his body or heaving desperation passes into the end zone.Brady has a different style. He’s a drop-back passer with underrated pocket mobility, perfect mechanics and he simply outsmarts everyone else on the field. He fooled a pair of defenders with his eyes by looking as if he was throwing a screen pass and instead fired deep for a 55-yard TD pass to Josh Gordon to seal the win.But John Elway and Steve Young also belong in the “most talented” conversation, so it’s not even a slam dunk that title belongs to Rodgers. Michael Vick wasn’t nearly as well-rounded but he could throw a 70-yard touchdown pass with a simple flick of his left wrist or he could sprint 70 yards for a score at any point in a game. He has a case for the “most talented” debate if it’s based purely on physical skills. It won’t be long before Patrick Mahomes has to be considered, too.However, the “greatest of all time” argument ended when Brady rallied the Patriots from a 28-3 third-quarter deficit against the Falcons to win his fifth Super Bowl title on February 5, 2017.“He’s got five championships,” Rodgers said earlier in the week when asked the GOAT question. “I think that ends most discussions.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Quiet Qatar: Few fans, little buzz for gymnastics worldslast_img read more

Protest against Manipur journalist’s arrest under NSA

first_imgThe BJP-led coalition government in Manipur is facing mounting pressure from the Indian Journalists Union (IJU), the Press Council of India (PCI), various students’ organisations, and political parties to release Kishorechandra Wangkhemcha, a local cable network journalist arrested on November 27 under the National Security Act (NSA).He was arrested earlier for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh for observing the birth anniversary of Rani of Jhansi in Imphal. The journalist had contended in his Facebook message that the Rani of Jhansi had nothing to do with Manipur and the anniversary was observed at the directives of the Centre.On November 26, the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Imphal west, released Mr. Wangkhemcha on bail saying that his message did not amount to “sedition”. However, the government arrested him the next day under the NSA. Ranjita, his wife, said the police did not furnish reasons for the arrest when they raided their house.The Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU) in a statement appealed to all to raise their voice against this “blatant violation” of human rights. MUSU general secretary I. Kennedy wondered how a few words by Mr. Wangkhemcha could pose a threat to national security.Report soughtThe Press Council of India (PCI) has registered a suo motu case on the arrest. PCI chairman Justice Chandramauli Kumar Prasad has directed the Chief Secretary, the Home Secretary and the Director-General of Police to submit a report on the arrest.The Indian Journalists Union (IJU) said that it curtailed the freedom of expression and was a blatant misuse of the NSA. In a statement, IJU president and PCI member Amar Devulapalli and secretary-general Sabina Inderjit said: “The arrest must be seen as an attack on freedom of expression and most undemocratic”.‘Case holds no water’A prominent Manipur High Court advocate told The Hindu on Tuesday that the State government should have gone to the High Court against the ruling of the CJM, Imphal West, if it wanted to arrest the journalist under the NSA. The government’s justification will not hold water if Mr. Wangkhemcha goes to the High Court challenging his detention under the NSA as the lower court had ruled that his case did not amount to sedition.The All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU) has, however, said it would not get involved in the issue. AMWJU president Brozendra Ningombam said: “There is a resolution which says that the AMWJU shall not get involved in matters which have nothing to do with the profession of a journalist”.Mr. Wangkhemcha’s wife is miffed that no help was extended to her husband from any circle.Congress MLA and party spokesperson Joykishan Khumukcham said the BJP-led government was out to muzzle the voices of journalists and all others. He dared the authorities to arrest him since he too was a critic of the government.last_img read more
