    The NFL rules committee apparently hasn't made it official yet, but based on last night's game in Denver the New Brady Rule grants immunity to any quarterback named "Brady" from intentional grounding calls.
    The new rule when written up will read in part, "...shall be called unless a receiver, tight end, or running back (either real or imaginary) is within 100 yards of any quarterback named Tom Brady..."
    I stopped counting at 5 last night and that pampered MOFO didn't even have to argue for one of 'em!

    Intentional Grounding is one of those things that's so ambiguous that if you're actively looking to see if someone's getting away with it constantly you will always convince yourself that they are.

    So is Star Quarterback Preferential Treatment, I guess.

    It was pretty obvious that that rule is already in existence for said individual. I am never surprised at stuff like this anymore.
