Look to your right. That is an e-mail from an actual reader today. And that reader is not alone. Now look at the SEASON AVERAGES for Mr. Tom Brady from 2009-2012, aka since he got married to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen: 65.4 percent completions, 4,342 yards, 33 TDs, 8 INTs and a 104.0 passer rating (and that's all with three games left this year).

Tom Brady was a great QB before he married a Brazilian supermodel. He has arguably been an even better QB since he married a Brazilian supermodel.

Christian Ponder is struggling for a lot of reasons, but being a "young man in love"  is not one of them.
