    From SI's Jim Trotter via Twitter:

    "Harrison said it was a joke. He texted Tom at halftime telling him he was going to say it. Brady texted him back after the game and laughed."

    I'm closing the other thread to put that one to bed :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the clarification, Ian. The thin skin of some Pats fans is ridiculous.

    We love them when they're here, and then disown them when they're gone. It's definitely funny how that works when guys move on. God help us if Bruschi ever says anything bad :rolleyes:

    i knew it ................coz if brady was what rodney called him ,i donot think he would have gone for the slide with ray lewis barrelling towards him (two qbs have already had fractured ribs resulting from similar plays),neither would he have gone for the td himself, these two plays clearly show he puts the teams interests before his own safety...............GO PATS

    I didn't see his comments but when I read the title of that thread I fully thought it was a joke and can't believe when I opened it how many didn't even ones that saw it.

    oh well I guess when it comes to the golden boy don't even joke.

    much love for Rodney here.

    I don't think there were many people on this board that believed he actually meant what he said.

    Ridiculous that you needed to post this justification Ian. It was clear as day it was tongue in cheek.

    Thanks for running a tight ship once more.

    Considering Rodney told a story of Brady crying with him in the locker room after one of Rod's many injuries I think they are close enough to make fun of each other. I don't understand the hysteria.

    Between Rodney's play as a Patriot, and the loyalty he's shown to the team since he retired, he can just about do or say no wrong in my eyes. To me it was an obvious joke. Rodney LOVES Brady. That's always been evident.

    I was suprised at how mad people got. I saw him say it, and it's like the time you're with a bunch of friends and someone tries to say something funny. They say it, and then have to spend an hour and a half explaining it when it turns into an argument that just gets out of control.

    You can't close and lock arguments in real life. It's kind of too bad - if only life was really that easy :cool:

    I didn't want to comment of the other thread, but i would thnk people would realize Harrison was kidding or being sarcastic. They were team mates as recently as last year, and if it wasn't for Brady, Rodney wouldn't be sporting two SB rings. Really, would it make any sense that Rodney was serious? NO

    It also occured to me that Harrison had talked to Brady about the comment either before or after he made it..

    What is sad is that I "got" it right away that he was joking, yet the other guys on the show thought he was serious! I was thinking "What clowns. How they hell do such idiots get to act like they are "analysts"." If Rodney REALLY wanted brownie points, he would have turned to the other 2 and gave them a funny look "Have you guys ever heard of sarcasm?". Of course, he would get a **** storm from the producers. How dare anyone make a tv personality out to look stupid or wrong.

    Rodney has earned the right to say whatever he damn well pleases, as far as I'm concerned.

    I dont see whats so funny. You have all these analysts, especially the ones on the Football Night in America set, who take every chance to bash the Patriots, and to say that this is about Brady being overprotected. Dungy said that these calls were directly because an overreaction to Brady being hurt last year. Completely ignoring the call on Flacco. Thats when I would expect someone like Rodney to come to our defense and maybe even show some examples from the Bills and Jets games where no calls were made. Instead he makes this joke, when I would have really loved for him to stick it to Dungy and Olberman. I dunno, I just dont like it.

    Brady's answer to Rodney's remark on Dennis & Callahan on WEEI this morning went something like this... Well, Rodney led the league in personal fouls'. Now the perpetually offended thin skinned' readers will take that as a fued, but Brady also commented that he and Rodney were like brothers. He then went on to say that densive players have their views but QBs have to stand there unprotected. Said Suggs barely touched him but refs need to call the rule and not impute intyent.

    EDIT: Something's WRONG on Ian's Wayback machine as my posts instead of appearing last get back dated and posted 'earlier'

    As long as Rodney and Brady have an understanding about what really happened, that's all that really matters! Brady even was laughed about it on WEE this morning also, and said there is nothing that Rodney could ever say that could ever bother him.

    It's not the joke itself that got people mad. It's the fact that Rodney said it was a bad call. Not only do I disagree with him, I think he was piling on as every commentator was taking the Ravens side and not one said it was the correct call. If Harrison is going to throw his opinions around, as is his right, we also have the right to call him on it if we disagree.

    This morning Skip Bayless said that Ray Lewis should take off the skirt. Strange times when I agree with Bayless more than Rodney.

    Oh, I know why they are doing it. I just hope that they turn that rule around when Brady retires. ;)

    Eh, even if he wasn't joking, what he said should be taken in stride. He does have a point about the QBs being way too overprotected. It was almost hilarious to watch some of the very same people who defended him before by saying, "It's about time we have someone in the media who calls it like it is!" turn on him like a pack of rabid wolves when he said something (albeit in jest) remotely bad about the Pats.

    Yes, QBs ARE overprotected. It must rankle on defensive players. However, the NFL is a business. Guys like Brady and Manning attract eyeballs. Without them, the entertainment value is less. Ya gotta remember that the QB's job description calls for him to stand there defenseless and exposed while the defenders prepare to bring the hit stick.

    Rodney has always been supportive of the Pats, and has shown his sense of humor over the years, so I am amazed anybody has needs clarification on this. The guy who has often complained of "disrespect" to the Pats now has to explain he is joking when he makes a comment directed at the Pats? Get a grip.

    And thank you Ian for stepping on this issue quickly. Good grief.
