    So is he backpeddling? Or was he taken out of context the first time?

    I have a lot of respect for the guy - hope it's the second one.

    I think it's pretty clear that he's saying that the writer intentionally took him out of context.

    What a shock. A writer took false liberties with some statements made by a player. When does that ever happen?

    I say this now with a straight face. Sports would be infintely better without ESPN.

    No..he's saying that some writers are comparing Brranch with "players(s) x y and z" while finding him lacking by comparison and they are wrong...and to the extent (if any) that NE Pats officials are feeding said writers with their view... *those officials* are wrong.

    Any comment that Brady was angry was presented as an opinion of the writer in SI.

    None of his comments said that he was angry at anyone.

    As far as the writer he is talking about at the end.

    It's Tom Curran.

    I know Deion is Brady's good friend, and I fully expect him to defend him.

    But I do agree with Curran.

    Oops, our mistake! We took him out of context.

    Has to be. Backpedalling is when you soften your stance. When you say someone oveblew what you said, you are standing by what you said.

    FWIW, I don't know if you read the article when it came out. I did, and looked at all the Brady quotes and could not see where the writer got his conclusions.

    Even worse, though, were talking heads who say, "Brday tells the Patriots to sign Branch at any cost" as Wilbon did on PTI.

    I still think what Tom said was fine, and even if he didn't clarify, I'd be fine with it.

    The big winner is wRONg Borg-Ass, who can say, "See, I was right all along. Brady is not a stand-up guy and the Patriots are a bunch or inept morons and their fans a bunch of brainless sheep."

    Oh, wait, he says that anyway.

    Why? SO we could be left with 10 minutes of sports stuck at the end of newscasts and team or league written whitewash programs? I don't know how old you are, but I can remember what it was like before we had a sports network devoted to sports. Without ESPN, there would be no NFL Network and a whole bunch of other great sports programs and interviews.

    ESPN may not be perfect, but they are pretty damn good IMHO.

    This is such a non-issue.

    Can't you people tell that this is just Wrong Borges doing his typical thing of spreading misinformation.

    He took an article by Silver and then used it to advance his own agenda against Belichick, Pioli, and the Patriots organization.

    The media is so bad.
