In the Starting Line-Up
this thread needs theme music ...
It'll be interesting to see, years from now, whether Brady made more money from football contracts, or business contracts (including the sales and equity value of TB12 plus the usual endorsements, etc.).
I don't think TB12 recognizes how lucky he has been injurywise or that his DNA likely has played a role in that. There have been plenty of amazing athletes who take good care of themselves. And some of them just break down through no fault of their own. To credit anything other than luck and good genes is folly.
Funny you mention that and I agree.Frankly the way BB has run this team is kind of silly in many ways. It isn't fooling anyone. Do you think anyone buys that he thinks 2-14 teams are solid from top to bottom? Or that all the players on his team are just trying to compete for a job regardless if they are a 10 year veteran making top money at their position coming off an all pro year or any of 20 UDFAs they bring in any year? BB runs this team like a military high school team. That comes with benefits at times, but also a lot of hot air and incongruity where what he says clearly doesn't match the reality we all know exist. It isn't like it's fooling anyone either. This isn't to bash BB. This is to make clear for fans here who have fallen for this idea of 'The Patriot Way', that it isn't those things that made this team great. They were completely incidental to our success.
Open, brazen belittlement of the team's success since he started, false cheating allegations, fake scandals, illegitimate punishments, anti-Patriots propaganda:Funny you mention that and I agree.
Brady on being rarely honest during press conferences:
“However, he admits what he says is very rarely how he feels.
“What I say and what I think are two different things,” Brady said. “I would say 90 percent of what I say is not what I’m thinking, which is challenging.”
I will say I love Tom Brady, the football player. TB12, the brand manager, not as much.
Not only has his wife effected him, and changed him. Others around him like gronk Alex g, tony Robbins the media. And Hollywood celebs. I believe all had a hand convincing him. He was not appreciated and being taken advantage of somehow. They filled his head 24 7 with how great he was. Convincing him that he alone was the reason for the 6. Instead of keeping him grounded. It's sad.This and he also needs to lay off of the botox.View attachment 33594
Forehead paralysis like you read about in that interview. Another manifestation of his wife’s influence, like TB12.
I rarely agree with Shank, but this is one of the rare times, from today’s Globe.

Its not the ones that tell him he's great that drives him. Its the ones that doubt him that does.Not only has his wife effected him, and changed him.
