    RBs rarely do, and I’ve yet to see an expensive long-term RB extension that the team didn’t regret. My objection is, again, about putting universal dos and don’ts on the draft.

    TB is getting more than Brady.

    This will change their culture for the next 5 seasons. Brady will rub off on his teammates. Im not expecting championships, but I expect a tone change in Tampa Bay for 4-5 seasons. A couple even after Brady leaves.

    Tom gets weapons on offense, respect, warm weather, oh and a team that actually wanted him to come.

    Brady will compete head to head with Drew Brees twice a season as well so that's gonna be a treat to watch.

    I will enjoy watching Brady in Tampa, he's more likely to get to the Superbowl there than with a lesser AFC team.

    At least he didn't go to the Dolphins to haunt us twice a season in the same division so you can be thankful for that.

    The NFC is no longer stacked at QB compared to the AFC. In the last couple of years:

    -Mahomes has emerged
    -L. Jackson has emerged
    -Watson has emerged
    -A middle class of QB has emerged...these guys aren’t great but are a lot better than what these teams had before (Carr, Darnold, Mayfield, Tannehill)

    -Goff has regressed/just isn’t that good
    -Wentz has regressed/just isn’t that good
    -Cousins is mediocre, as expected
    -Newton is basically done
    -Rodgers has regressed a lot

    Why hasn't Brady been announced by Tampa? This is stinking like McDaniels to the colts

    Maybe Brady will do battle with Jimmy Baby in the post season.

    You realize that Brady was internally advocating for them to acquire Sanu, right? He got a guy he wanted.

    Brady doesn't seem to understand what type of personnel he actually needs, either (Sanu's injury notwithstanding).

    Yes Brady didn’t understand that with Sanu and Sanders being the two best options that he should have picked the one who wouldn’t get injured

    The poster is criticizing Sanu's overall talent to make the argument that Brady had an easy decision to go to Tampa Bay, because of their far superior receiving talent.

    His shot at Sanu has nothing to do with his injury. He is arguing that the sh*t-tier receiving talent Belichick brought in made Brady's decision to leave easy.

    I'm pointing out that the WR he's sh*tting on is a player that Brady was advocating for the team to acquire.

    We were desperate for talent in the middle of the season largely due to injury and a psychopath. It wasn’t like they were in a talent draft

    That's a fair point. I guess my general approach here is that Tom probably doesn't always know what's best for him from a personnel standpoint, either.

    Talent evaluation is a tricky thing, and he's excelled with under-talented receivers and struggled with hyper-talented receivers. Chemistry, understanding, and players that can adapt to his style/quirks are seemingly hard to find.

    Unless the argument is that his issue wasn't with personnel, but rather with the system, which I find hard to believe. Surely EHP could have been adapted to accommodate simpler routes/concepts at any point during his 20 years here. I don't think Tom was upset with the system he was playing in, but rather the players he was playing with.

    Unless you have a direct quote from Brady, that is just a rumor.

    I wanted Sanders but he was the one that had injury issues all season up to that point. Somehow he played out the season. Funny how things work sometimes.

    How do you know he favored Sanu over Sanders? My understanding was the Pats favored Sanu because of the contract situation—Sanu being under contract for 2020 vs Sanders becoming a free agent.

    I never said he preferred Sanu over Sanders. I simply said that he is on record as essentially saying that he internally advocated for them to acquire Sanu.

    Apparently there is trouble in paradise about the language in the contract. I saw twitter-speculation that an ownership stake was what the holdup is.

    Look, I love the guy. But right now, I'm glad he's dealing with some bs and he's not even officially there yet. So anxious to leave...maybe the grass isn't as green as he thought.

    Report: Brady 'really pushed for' Sanu trade

    “But Mohamed Sanu, the acquisition of him last week, I am told by several sources that Brady really pushed for that one,” Garafolo said. “So, the Patriots were willing to give up a second-round pick to get Sanu in, a guy that Brady was eager to have inside the building there and knows will be integral in the offense. He was a big factor there.”

    Tom Brady doesn’t deny that he pushed for Mohamed Sanu

    “There was a report that you pushed for Mohamed Sanu behind the scenes. Was this trade deadline an opportunity to voice your preference, or just some of the things you liked about Mohamed before the deal?”

    “I think everybody liked Mohamed. So, yeah. Everybody liked him. Everybody likes him, that’s why he’s here. So it’s great to have him. I’m excited for him, and again, the more we work together, the better it’s going to be.
    -

    Is that a full-throated, "I told Bill to get Sanu"? No, but it's everything short of that. I think there's ample evidence to conclude that Brady was internally pushing Belichick to acquire Sanu.
