Manley: "Garbage" Brady "can't pick up a first down"

Former Washington Redskins defensive lineman Dexter Manley thinks Tom Brady is "garbage," "can't pick up a first down" and is no better than Matt Ryan.

No, for real.
"Tom Brady can't even pack Joe Theismann's jock," Manley said today, via WEEI. "I think Tom Brady can't pick up a first down. He has no athletic skills, he's surrounded by good people, but the guy is in the toilet, in my opinion. In my opinion he's in the toilet."
Brady actually picks up a lot of first downs. It's not something that takes much "thinking." But anyway, carry on.
"I'll take Joe Theismann, I'll take [Matt Ryan], anything over Tom Brady. I'll take Joe Theismann first, I'll take Matty Ice second, and I might take Doug Williams third, but I'm not gonna take Tom Brady to lead my team nowhere. … Tom Brady is garbage. He can't pick up a first down. He has no athletic skill. He's surrounded by people, but Tom Brady is garbage. Garbage!!!! …
"Matty Ice is a pure passer. He can pick up a first down. ... [H]e's much better than Tom Brady."
Typically, we wouldn't give something like this the time of day. But it's so ridiculous that it's un-ignorable.
