I’m Officially Tired of Tom Brady
He's the King of New England, the Sultan of Super Bowls, but I'm over it.
Every kingdom shall eventually fall. I think it's time Tom Brady cede his power so a new king may rise in his place.
I know you're probably reading this thinking I'm insane. Brady's essentially a God. Well, all of that is well and good. He's been great and I'm glad we've had the G.O.A.T. all this time. I love the Super Bowls and the records and all of that, but I think we're at the end of the rope here.
He's not getting any younger (I don't care how pliable the TB12 method has made him). He's also kind of becoming a whiny little baby it seems. Think about it. He's becoming the biggest diva quarterback in the business. Search your feelings, you know this to be true.
He got his undies in a bunch over the fact that Jimmy Garoppolo was looking like Bill's next guy. So what did Tommy do? He went and tattled on Bill to Mr. Kraft. I can see it now, "But Roberttttttt.... I wanna be the Pat's QB foreverrrrr and Bill likes Jimmy more than me! It's not fair!" Then just like that... Jimmy was out going undefeated in San Francisco.
Now Tom, the guy who stresses the importance of practice. The guy who wants to get in all the extra work and extra hours is skipping OTAs suddenly? His TB12 wizard Alex Guerrero was banned from the Patriots' facilities and Tommy boy was none to happy about that. It's clear that Tom and Bill aren't too friendly anymore. A large part of that has to do with Guerrero.
Honestly, I'm just over it. I'm over the whole situation. There comes a time when you have to make a business decision. Ty Law, Richard Seymour, Vince Wilfork, Chandler Jones, all of these guys got moved because Bill and the Patriots but the team first and no player is bigger than the team. I understand Tom is a cornerstone, but come on. We had it all set up perfectly and Tom's tantrum now has us without a ready back up to take over. It's very much NOT the Patriot way.
Even Danny Ainge had the courage to trade away KG, and the 15-year cornerstone Paul Pierce. He didn't hang on to them until they had nothing left. He got value and now the Celtics have appeared in back-to-back conference finals. That's how Bill and the Patriots have always worked too!
Basically what I'm trying to say is thanks Tom. I can't wait to see you again at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, but for now... either shape up or ship out.
