Just asking ... this could be the year it fully develops.
He's on the Red Sox band wagon.
Boy do I miss Billy O'Brien. He would get in the face of the diva when the spoiled child would get out of control.
Just remember - you see the true face of people when things are going bad not when things are going good.

He has the right to be frustrated. But it's also up to him to help them along.
If this was Peyton Manning, we'd be crucifying him here on these boards.
This was not a sign of leadership IMO. Showing you're frustrated is natural. But to go on for the entire game and berate your young demoralized receivers on national television is not leading.
His true leadership did show up in his press conference admitting he was wrong in his reactions. He gets mad props from me for that.
Yep. He realizes what needs to be done. Everyone is gonna learn alot about themselves this season and next few weeks. And that might bond this team together enough for a championship.
Totally agreed, TB needs more control in the heat of the battle. While I think the Tom Brady of 2001 has evolved to take on some of PM's negative traits, starting with his own brand of pouter face, I never heard the hoofed one (face, colts, broncos - coincidence?) admit that he was at fault. I believe that by eliminating all veteran alternatives, the zen master is forcing TB to develop a ballistic receiving core for the near and long term future. In the process it will also force TB to face his biggest weakness and acknowledge that he has a role in developing receivers who are new to the system.
Nope. Don't like this thread. Without TB, half of these fans wouldn't even be here. I'm not turning my back on him when he is needed most. In TB , I trust. Without him we're done. Last I checked, Your supposed to catch the ball in college. Same in the NFL. F' the media and especially Mike Irvin. I'm not biting. This thread is pathetic
So we are turning on him becasue of his face? Hilarious
What team do you root for?
the greatest QB of all time is yelling at you, you should probably stop and fix whatever it is hes mad at you about.
this isnt J I've never won a playoff game cutler yelling at you, This is the Greatest god damned QB to ever play the game. He's earned the right to tell you to stop playing like a one armed blind person.
Ummm ... the intent of the thread is one of humor ... just saying loosen up a bit.
Try some Ketle One in your prune juice.
Maybe I'm over reacting, but I live in Jersey (I know ). I had to sit on a job today for hours, waiting for an inspector. I had to listening to "The Fan NY radio" all day and hear the BS from NY fans. Then, I come home to "My team" and read this crap. That "Face" is the face of this TEAM. Without him, we're done. Sorry, I don't find it funny right now. I guess I'm a homer.
I am a big homer and find it funny so idk
What a sad state of the boards when a Moderator is trolling a 2 and 0 team....pitiful
So how many rings does B.O'Brien have? Oh that's right he was a nobody 5 years ago...Amazing what Tommy did to his career, should go ask Weiss and McDaniel's about that too...Since neither of them have won jack-**** since they left the Pat's, McDaniel's even came back cause he knew....
Tommy has every right to yell and scream and do w\e it takes to win! These rookies aren't little boys, there grown ass men, nut up...In the heat of battle I want my QB barking out orders, he's the leader...
Could he tone it down? Sure...But in the end, these rookies need to know what's expected of them and if they're not running routes right or dropping balls you should get your ass chewed be it on TV or in practice...
This isn't powder puff football....This is the NFL...You think its bad for the rookies mental growth? That its not right to chew them out? These are grown men who make more in a year, then most of us will in a lifetime...If you're in the NFL you should be able to take it...or maybe you're not cut out for the NFL...
I bleed local teams ...
If the Patriots are not enjoying themselves preparing for the next game then we are in trouble. Humor and enjoyment are part of every successful team and if this team misses anyone it's Matt Light ... he kept everyone loose ... when Gronk is smiling again that also will help.
The only point of this thread is to troll
PEYTON MANNING GOES CRAZY!!!!!! - YouTube
I have to be honest:
1. I like to imagine TB12 as perfect and I hate when I see any glimpse that he's not. This is an absolute, unrealistic expectation. There's probably something borderline wrong with it, but I want people to talk about the QB of my team in like hushed whispers of awe when I'm an old man. I hate that there might be blow-up clips or Spygate yammer instead. This whole thing is SUPER minor, but it feels like it's more important than it is because I really want these guys to pull it out and win the Superbowl this year and cement that legacy. Win with a crew of absolute no-names. It would be epic and almost as good as winning in '07 would have been. (Not quite, but almost.)
Because of all this:
2. I absolutely hate that a Brady face thread is on our forum and not another team's forum.
I'm a total, lifelong, Patriots homer, and a HUGE fan of Tom Brady. I'll be cremated with some old Foxboro tickets crumpled in my hand.
But that doesn't mean I can't call him out a little when I think he's not being his best. I don't like him freaking out like that over and over again. I think he needs to show a little more cool when things get tough like they did last night (and he basically admitted that in the press conference).
While I don't agree with how Tom reacted, I've also never been as passionate as him about my job. He is clearly frustrated, aren't we all frustrated about this receiving corp and the offense in general right now? I wonder what people would say about each and everyone of us if there was a national camera pointed at us while we simply watched the game. Never mind putting in all the effort, sweat, hours, etc, etc, etc that Tom and the boys do.
Maybe just as we have been spoiled by the Pats over the years, Brady has been spoiled with elite talent since 07. This is gut check time, mad props to him for recognizing his error and I think it's great he aknowledged it publicly. I am confident he will help out these rooks... sometimes you take on the charteristics of your coach, we all know the stories about BB berating players in meetings in front of the team. We also know that BB will publicly lift people up during his press conferences as well...
The rooks are being called upon to deliver unnecessarily early and rise to lofty expectations. The new CBA has really shortened the learning curve, how many sloppy games were played last week? A lot! There aren't a lot of rookie receivers who play great right away. I have been down on them too but at the end of the day, the Pats are 2-0 and can only get better from here.
I'm an original Brady's Lady from back when vicious internecine wars between Bledsoe and Brady supporters burned out the inter webs. I think it's healthy fun to poke fun at TFB's temper. In marked contrast to say, Peyton, Brady does not self-servingly throw team mates under the bus in press conferences, even when they have richly earned the dubious dishonor. It's a game and Tom is a human being. A fine leader but emotional one. He always takes personal responsibility for his actions, including yesterday, a mark of character and integrity.
Why even I, a calm, patient, always rational red head can lose it.
Was Brady right to chew out Dobson? Yes, but not during the game. And I definitely didn't agree with him sulking. Thankfully he recognized that as a problem as well.
In times like these, I try to find any positives possible. But given anemic our O looked, I can only say this: At least Tom addressed his on field behavior with more class and grace than some people....
