    Brady not showing because...

    Is because he is attending the Wedding of his wife, Gisele Bundchen's sister.

    I wish the media would ST*U, whatever there agenda. Full of fricken morons.

    Re: Brady not showing...

    I agree. That's kind of ridiculous. I like bleeping out actual curse words as that is what makes this forum postable when I'm at work. However, bleeping out ST-FU is a little eh, to say the least.

    As for Brady, I think it's pretty clear that he's lost his drive. We should look at a quarterback in the first round. Jimmy Clausen ran the same type of system at Notre Dame and would be the one guy that could come in and make an immediate impact. We should package #22 and all of our second round picks to move up to #1 and take Clausen.

    Kinda mirrors my take on both situations...

    He will be here, in the long and short term. And he wishes he could have been here last week, but he understands the dynamic...

    Ditto Kontra's draft idea.

    At least GTFO still works.

    Another little snippet from a real estate blog that kinda ties in... They are said to be due to close on a lovely, kid and privacy friendly estate in Brookline this month...can't get much closer to the Krafts than by being neighbors in their exclusive double digit neighborhood...

    And FWIW Kraft also commented on his arrangement/agreement with BB, said there is no other HC he would want running this team.

    Really, most fanbases can only dream of this kind of stability and continuity where it counts most. All we ever need to do is tweek the pieces of the roster puzzle...

    Nope...


    Reiss is posting some more comments from Kraft as well. Thinks Tom will be here by midweek. Talked about the need to improve chemistry in the locker room, how disappointing the loss at home to Baltimore was, signing guys this offseason whom they think will be leaders, no comment on whether AD will be here (even though he's under contract, so take that for what you will...).

    Re: Brady not showing...

    I hope you are being sarcastic. God forbid he misses the first week to attend his sister in-law's wedding and visit with his son. God forbid we only have photographic evidence of two workouts. Lost his drive? He played with broken ribs, a broken finger, and recently torn knee last season. He showed up to work early in a snowstorm less than 12 hours after the birth of his son. Lost his drive? Nevermind that Clausen has a bit of a diva attitude and took a Limo to his signing day announcement, I'm sure he wouldn't even miss one week for the marriage of his sister-in-law after 3 super bowl rings and the all-time single season TD record. Brady is still one of the most driven, hard-working players on this team and has all-time special leadership qualities. Relax. Kraft is not stupid. He said this morning Brady will be here this offseason, even maybe by Wednesday. Brady is also is building a house in Brookline. But I'm sure that is just an indication that he isn't driven anymore right? He should be living in a trailer in the Enterprise lot on Rt. 1 in Foxboro not a whole half hour away right?

    I figured it was obvious but I suppose I should say that I, too, was kidding.

    These forums have been getting more hilarious; as a result of all the trolling about Brady, a lot of people have just started to run with it and make equally absurd suggestions so now most threads advocate trading Brady #1 overall for Tebow, etc.

    We used a sixth rounder (Brady) on a project QB and a seventh rounder (Cassel) on a project QB. If BB wants to use one of our (3) second rounders on another "project QB", he has my full support.

    There is a big difference between risking a 6th or 7th rounder on a project and risking a 2nd rounder, especially with many other holes to fill.

    If he wants to use our 4th on Tebow, I'm fine with that. I'd even look past a 3rd (if we had one) but a 2nd is too high IMO.

    Come on. We regularly blow second rounders on guys like Terrance Wheatley, and Ron Brace, and Chad Jackson, and Bethel Johnson. If BB thinks Tebow can work the goal line and turn those field goals into touchdowns, or be an H- back, or tight end, and play special teams, or be a strong developmental QB, he has my support.

    "Would we be better as a team if he was in Foxborough every day between now and the start of training camp? Absolutely."..........Kraft

    I think the above quote is what bothers some Patriots fans. They agree with the Patriots owner that the Patrtiots would be a better team if Brady showed up every day for offseason workouts.

    I actually thought it was very telling hearing these two quotes from Kraft:

    "There was a hoo-ha last week when voluntary offseason workouts started and Brady was in Los Angeles working out away from the team while spending time with his family. Asked about Brady's absence, Kraft was candid saying, "If you’re asking me if I’d prefer he be here the whole offseason, yes. to me, he’s the most unique, special leader and player in the NFL."

    ""He has a family," Kraft pointed out. "There is no doubt in my mind, he’s working out hard. Would we be better as a team if he was in Foxboro every day between now and the start of training camp? Absolutely. Does it work for him? I don’t know. I think he’s balancing a lot of things. I hope he spends as much time as he can in Foxboro and I believe he will."

    Bottom line is the owner of the team thinks the New England Patriots would be a better team if Tom Brady was in Foxboro EVERY day, vice being somewhere else. I know alot of posters here have felt the same way. Kraft agrees with those posters.
