In case you missed the Washington Post article titled “Deflate Gate Got Tom Brady So Mad, and The Rest of the NFL is Paying The Price“, it is an excellent read. Gives us a great look at Brady and just how much he wants to win. One of my favorite lines in this article is the paragraph titled, Proving His Doubters Wrong
Over the years, the diamond gleam of Super Bowl rings and gloss of magazine covers have obscured the grinder with awkward feet who is desperate to prove everybody wrong. But he’s still there — he shows himself occasionally in a fit of sideline temper, a seizure-like scream of frustration or a geyser from a thrown water cup. At the start of training camp this past summer, wide receiver Julian Edelman told a local radio station, “You don’t want a mad Tom Brady, and he’s a little ticked off.” Less than two weeks ago Brady threw for four touchdowns in a 36-7 victory over the Miami Dolphins, yet still pounded the ground in frustration over a single missed third-down pass. His wife told Kraft that she woke up recently at 3:30 in the morning to find her husband studying film.
Awesome, just awesome. Brady is pissed, and it’s not just from Deflate Gate, its from everything. He’s had a chip on his shoulder his whole career. The 6th round, that was the first chip. A couple of team scandals later and the desire to be the best ever makes for one hell of a pissed off QB that wants to stampede your team and the rest of the league. Sure he wants to win because of Deflate Gate, he wants Roger to personally hand that Lombardi trophy to him in San Francisco (If Goodell decides to grace the Super Bowl with his presence) but mainly, Brady wants #5.
He lives and breathes football. Gisele waking up at 3:30 in the morning to find Tom studying film tells me and everyone everything they need to know about this guy. He wants it bad, and he’s has a great opportunity to get it. He’s like a rabid dog gawking at his computer at 3:30 in the morning and this is exactly why I love my quarterback.
My question is, when does the NFL get investigated? Numerous domestic abuse cases. Cases that involve brutal beating of women. Cases that are blown off and only brought to light when film or images appear. Cases in which the images we are shown match exactly to the police report… Suspensions that are light based on those same police report. Plain and simple, the NFL has its own problem, and it doesn’t involve air pressure in footballs, it involves the thugs in Rogers league. Clearly the NFL believes in women’s right…. and lefts.
Also, the NFL has been collecting air pressure data this year but has yet to release any of that. When is this going to be released? Surely you would have released that by now if your results went against the Patriots theories.
There are many holes in the league, people outside of New England just have one thing to stick to and one thing only “the Patriots are cheaters”. Understand this, I assure you there is no cheating going on, this team is under a finer microscope than any of you could imagine this year.
I promise, we are destroying your team and your league fair and square, and honestly, that leaves a sour taste in a lot of peoples mouths. And I LOVE IT…
