    I didn't catch everything on the marital issues, but reminds me of my gf. Likes the money and status of my job, but then complains when I come home at 10pm every night and have to work weekends.

    That was a good interview. Brady was open and maybe this is one of the points he made in the Players Tribune. To be seen and heard. Could he have given such an interview under BB and be this opened without some blow back?
    I actually learned something new about Brady.

    Curran spoke about this today. He said last year the team took away Brady’s ability to call out teammates when they weren’t on the same page. He knew then he was on the way out and that he wasn’t in the teams long term plans. They had phased other older players out in the same way.

    A play that stuck out to Curran was at one summer practice when one of the young receivers lined up in the wrong place. Normally Brady would yell at him where to go but wasn’t allowed to anymore. Instead he stood there with the ball in his hand until Josh McDaniels ran over and told the receiver where to line up.

    Pretty ridiculous to take away his ability to get his guys lined up right and be the leader of the O.

    Ridiculous is the wrong word...thanks for the insight though. I hope we do well going forward, not so much this year because honestly I'm not happy but I'll get over it and things need to move forward. Running a dictatorship isn't easy and they've had a star willing to take it which made it work.

    They should have tried a little harder to get Emanuel Sanders from Pittsburgh when they had the chance.

    Well, if the 2020 season is cancelled, Gisele and Tom will be seeing a lot of each other. She might even look into ways of getting him out of the house.

    And that would be me...the guy who has been on this forum for over 15 years and doesn't have a twitter account, facebook, snapchat or whatever social media garbage account...Sports forums are the extent of my social media activity....But what ever makes you feel better about your football knowledge. I am sure you impress your wife. But let me ask you, if , if its only "Pre-Season dude, gtfoh", then why do you think coaches from all levels insist on it...Yep, I'll let you think.

    Read above, it's been said to you already. There is no game plan, no scheme, no care, no first stringers in pre season.

    It was an example, come on. Its been happening for years. I'm not saying we become the 2007 Pats but some of this is getting silly. All I am saying is, the offense will have more flexibility with more "surprise" moments..along with many, many more WTF moments like last year, just in a different context. Things are going to get more unscripted for better or worse and given the production of the offense overall last year, it could be for the better.

    At the end of the day Brady being Brady is what it is...dang what it was. But not showing up to OTA's, which clearly he didn't need on a personal level, put his receivers behind the 8-ball. Think, if a professor didn't show up for lectures, but expected his students to ace the exam...to his exacting standards. Its a recipe for failure.

    Have you ever coached a football game, recruited a team, made a game plan, even at the middle school level, built a team?

    I know the answer...but feel free to respond.

    No worries on snarky. Those in your first sentence would of sucked in most places, no doubt.

    But your second sentence...How much success did Deion have in Seattle or Givens in Tennessee? Loved Mitchell but where did he go when he left? How many "Proven" WR's that are HOF or Hall of very Good, came to NE at the end of their careers didn't make it through "Pre-Season" which a few point out, is well, just pre-season.

    Its, it was a combination. I'll take TB and those he trusts all day everyday. But to think that a 3rd round kid playing with a scrub QB is making plays and fantasy players are gobbling him up, could do that with Tommy is a fallacy.

    The sad part is this has been obvious for a long...long time. Apparently I have others to respond to according to Toto or tito or whatever so I will explain more in those posts...From my point of view of course.

    Ok, I agree most defenses and offenses, (the part many forget to point out) are running basic concepts. At the end of the day, the majority of football, especially at the NFL level is winning one on one match ups. I would say, a lot of it is relative, but as we know, some kids are just genetic freaks. At the same time, coaching can and more often than not, is what determines who wins those battles, assuming the players are reasonably comparable in talent, which in the NFL is nearly a guarantee.

    The point which you make, is a less experienced QB simplifies the offense, which is the point I apparently did a bad job at making.

    That doesn't make a Jarred Stidham offense suddenly become more dangerous than a Tommy led offense, it just makes it more unpredictable, and more likely for young inexperienced receivers to succeed in.

    I love replies like this. Lets move the goalposts, lets change the subject. Lets try and create chaos. Stay on point, bud. I forgot, you have none. What you stated about receivers and Brady makes no sense.

    Regarding “neglected” Gisele:

    First off, can we agree that Gizzy is a .....


    Her smothering tendencies have not been limited to just one A-list celebrity. She blanketed herself all over Leonardo DiCaprio for years before he escaped her clutches.
    She’s a clinger who mugs for the camera 24/7
    and is no doubt surprisingly insecure because the leading men in her life are the most desirable in the world.
    In public with Leo or Tom, her go-to move is “drape and cling”....thereby announcing her claim.
    Side story: years ago I had a Super Bowl party for couples. Two hot single women showed up at half time who all the husbands knew but not the wives, and the wives instantly started to pee on their fire hydrants, I mean sit on their husband’s laps-claiming their territory.
    Gisele is a territory claimer
    Still is

    Time line mention..... about the same time the Brady marriage was splintering, Brady was photographed with his wife wearing a 3 Amigos costume

    upload_2020-4-9_10-33-57.jpeg

    This is what “cucked” looks like.

    I have had a chance to read about most of the interview and I have to say I learned a ton. Brady was really great in his responses and actually made me admire him more both professionally and personally with his handling of his exit from the Pats, his feelings toward BB, and his marriage. He is really the only person that I do not know personally who has inspired me maybe even more so now. I really do hope he has a lot of success in Tampa both on and off the field.

    Never heard Gisele sing, but I do know she is a better singer than Yoko.
