    I don't know who this guy is who started this topic,but I don't think he should be questioning why Tom is a bit late in getting to the offseason workout program and spending more than usual time in Europe with Giselle than the usual yearly thing he normally does and thats start workouts in mid march.

    Maybe Tom has planned on proposing to Giselle in Europe and needs some time out there to think about things before he does it, or maybe the long season and all the criticism of the team last year during the winning streak and spygate and then the SB loss has wound him up so much that he needs a longer break than usual before going back to the basics.

    If there is any guy in the league that needs less time to prepare for an opponent its Tom Brady,Heck Tom could start the workout program 1 week before mandatory camp and still be more than in prime shape to beat most of the opposition this upcoming season.

    This guy needs to look deeper to find fault with Toms well deserved time off after a horrid end to a promising season and besides that ankle could use extra time as well to fully heal.

    If I could talk to him directly on behalf of Patriot nation about this, I would say "Take your time in Europe and relax Tom,we need you fully healthy from that ankle injury and refreshed both mentally and physically to kick azz again this season!" :rocker:.

    P.S. You want a good laugh?? - Look at that pic of Pacman Jones below that article in the link,He could not be more of a BSer than going to stoop so low to try and get Goodell to believe he is now not only a changed man but now a charitable one - funny but pathetic - He is so full of sh!t ,he stinks from head to toe...

    The workouts are not mandatory as Stacey James reported today! He said he players can make up workouts on off days as Tom and other players have done in the past. He will once again get his award!

    No worries!

    The workouts are usually never mandatory but the guy who wrote the article is a critic saying Tom usually NEVER misses EARLY offseason workouts but he is this year - Big deal IMO

    great article about gaffney up there

    Tom Brady is Tom Brady

    Its no coincidence he wins those awards in the weight room
    The last thing we need to do is question Tom Brady's work ethic

    Huge deal, I agree. I predict no better than 5-11 because of his poor example, dropping to 2-14 if Tom "the slacker" Brady doesn't start working out by Friday.

    We're doomed.

    Brady just needs extra time to recover from the thumping he received during the superbowl.

    Or, maybe, being 30 and going out with a supermodel, Tom Brady feels there are some more important things than winning football games, especially now that he has 3 superbowl rings and a near-perfect season.

    I don't care who he is or what kind of awards he received in the past. You get your butt in the gym and you lead by example. He is getting paid millions people. Its not too hard.

    High ankle sprains can take months to heal completely.

    Key to this is good blood circulation.

    Giselle is just trying to help circulate his blood.:p

    He was being sarcastic in response to your sarcasm. No one can be as stupid as that with a job in the media.:D

    Wow, some 'fans' really turned on tommy pretty quick here.

    So he missed a workout. Do you think he's not working out at the hotel he's staying at? He's doing exactly what the trainers tell him to do, which might include, taking it easy while recovering from injuries. Besides, the strain from last season must be incredible. Let the guy have some time off.

    Yes, I get your name.

    However it is Tom fricken' Brady. Maybe we should cut him, huh?

    Seriously I have not fully recovered from the Super Bowl and I don't have a high ankle sprain.

    If you are worried about his time with team mates, um, I think he might have the offensive complexity down.

    Hey, Dude. Ease up a little - Let's see you do what he does, "Its not too hard" :rolleyes:

    AND He's probably the most underpaid Football player in the HISTORY of the NFL so ease up on the money comments as well.

    He's one of, if not the, the greatest QB that ever strapped them on, he knows what he's doing.

    Any more talk like that and I'll be forced to print out your avatar and fight it.

    Re: Tom Brady missing some early offseason workouts brings criticism from some....

    The vast majority of NFL players have been off since New Years resting up for the next campaign. The two teams who locked up in the desert have been off for half as long. In fact the other QB attended his batchelor party last week so I doubt he'll be reporting to coach Coughlin's off season program much before April.

    The mental drain at the position, especially the way Brady and BB play the game, is almost more debilitating than the physical drain. Tommy has always gone above and beyond what most of his peers at the position do. He needs to start taking a little more time for himself when he can to avoid the mental burnout factor. These early season workouts are pretty limited - couple of hours a day a couple of days a week. The extra time he puts in all season long when he cuts back dramatically on anything resembling a personal life more than make up for missing a week or two of light conditioning workouts.

    I think most here to should listen to brushi talk on recovery time after games and season from his last interviewo on weei a bit and associate that with tom too.He is 30 not the 22 yr anymore .
    Also, his ankle even though is good no one knows how long it is going to take to heal.its not even 2 months from the injury.

    Re: Tom Brady missing some early offseason workouts brings criticism from some....

    How can anyone question Tom Brady's drive and work ethic at this point. How absurd.

    On top of the mental drain MoLewisRocks mentioned above, Brady got dinged up quite a bit at the end of the season. I remember Pete Sheppard on EEI saying he'd heard through a reliable source that Brady got a rib injury early in the Super Bowl game. Add that to the ankle injury and you got one banged up guy. Let the guy heal.
