Maybe they're trying to squeeze more teams to the playoffs.
The one 'silver lining' would be that rare occasion when it would be 'fun' to see what a young, gun slinger can do even if he's not ready to be the 'full time' guy.
Admit it, in 2016 we were all intrigued to see what Jimmy G. would do. I remember thinking, Brady's suspension is actually perfect, b/c we get to see what Jimmy can do WITHOUT Brady being hurt.
I'm sure there's a time each season where Brady is dinged up in which he'd be well served sitting a game but his warrior mentality won't allow it.
Now if the NFL mandates he has to sit two games, now it's an easy decision to do it when your nursing an injury.
And I remember thinking "Damn it, if he is as good as BB must have thought when he was selected in the 2nd round the league will see what he can do and he will be gone."
For the team that was the biggest cost of framegate
Didn't the NYFL start going after Brady and the Pats in 2014? That could make it 4 SB visits in 5 years (three straight) and 3 Lombardis.
At the moment The Butler Did It in 2014 I envisioned Goody and all of his gang spilling their drinks over themselves.
I'll never forgive the NYFL for the way they went after Brady. But he pretty much shut the critics up and made us the happiest sports fans on earth.
With Brady still playing, I think it’s safe to say I hat jimmy g would have left in free agency anyway... to go to a place where he would start or at least be a serious threat to start.
Sure we would have had him for another 1.5 seasons (I think) as a backup but fortunately we didn’t need him in the games.
It’s a dim witted idea
Jimmy G would have sat on the bench anyway. A little hindsighted I know.
Actually I'm amazed of how well things turned out after that corrupt laden scandal. Brady/Pats win a Super bowl, the released transcripts exposed Goodell's lies , JG's trade value increased and JG became a highly paid starter. Pretty much a best case scenario for everyone except Goodell.
Imo the loss of the picks is still the biggest cost of defame-gate.
