I think the mental image comes from the fact that it’s literally Tom Brady who comes in early, stays late, and often works with the players after practice. He makes himself available to answer questions about the playbook, even during off time. Both Brady and various receivers over the years have stated such. When a guy like Austin Collie came here, it was Brady. When Antonio Brown came here, it was Brady. When Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney were trying to grasp the offense, it was Tom Brady working with them on timing, placement, route running, etc. Of course he’s a huge part of trying to develop these receivers. Why wouldn’t he be?
