NFL Network Analyst Heath Evans Writes Instagram Post Complementing Brady and KraftRobert Deutsch - USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes you just need to speak your mind, and on Instagram Thursday, NFL Network Analyst and former New England Patriots running back Heath Evans did just that.

Evans posted a photograph of quarterback Tom Brady and Owner Robert Kraft sharing an emotional post-game embrace followed by a lengthy show of support while complementing the two men who he once worked with.

Evans was a vocal supporter of Brady during and after Deflategate, going as far to say NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was “not his boss”, despite working for the leagues cable channel.

“People just want to say, ‘Hey, we want the Patriots to be cheaters’ because they can’t wrap their minds around for the last 15 years, they’re just better than everybody. That’s just the truth. People love to hate on the best.”

Sometimes you display power and character by defending yourself. Sometimes you display power and character by defending others. And sometimes, despite the excruciating emotional pain, real power and character is displayed by choosing silence. Letting the world think and say what they may, knowing that in the end what people say and think has no bearing on the truth. I've known and seen both these men display all 3 versions of power and character for over a decade now with consistency, grace, and most importantly, humility! Both Mr. Kraft & @tombrady know real power, and character will always display itself in the end. In the end they were the last one standing and those living in glass houses throwing stones had no more stones to throw. @patriots #superbowl #51 #champions #power #character #truth
