Brady On Skipping Voluntary Workouts: "I have a family; kids aren't getting any younger"

Yes they created a rule, The Tuck Rule, for something not in rules just to quiet down detractors who complained that the zebras were helping him when they took back a fumble.  When the fire went down they took away the rule 

 

 

That rule already existed...in fact, it was called earlier that same year against NE....the rule was stupid and I'm glad they got rid of it...but in that game, it was called properly....

The article is about the nickname "controversy," but my biggest takeaway was Brady's comments about missing voluntary workouts.

 

"I have a family at home, and they get some of my time and energy," Brady said. "My wife is a very ambitious woman, and she travels a lot, so I'm just trying to divide some responsibility at home. She supports me a lot. My family supports me a lot. My kids aren't getting any younger. So just trying to spend the time with them when I can and still get the other things done that I need to get done, and be ready to go when it's time to go."

 

A couple ways to think about this:

 

1.  He's earned it.  He obviously doesn't NEED to go to these things.

2.  It's kind of a slap in the face to other players with families.

 

I'm not one to criticize Brady a hell of a lot.  In this one, however, I do think he comes across like a douche.

I agree with him completely.

Why is it hypocrisy? Is he saying that other players should be attending voluntary programs?

 

Maybe you don't agree with his reasons, but I don't see any indication of him being a hypocrite.

 

Now, you can go back a few years ago and see Brady talking about how important OTA's are, but I don't think he is claiming that OTA's now aren't important, I just think his relationship with Bill Belichick has soured a little bit because Bill doesn't cut him any slack even after all these years of winning (their tension last year was widely speculated upon).

 

PLUS I think he's had a heart to heart with his wife and he's probably agreed that if he wants to play deep into his 40's he has to also be present as much as possible at home with the family.

 

All in all, I see no issue with this and despite the fact I think Brady is an a** and a cry baby on the field and on the sidelines, I respect the approach he has taken with his family (but don't force your son to kiss you in the lips anymore. Awkward.)

 

Hypocrisy of the sport and saying all committed players should be there.  Not him specifically

I’m not buying any of it. They are Tom Brady’s kids! They can get younger if they want to.

I’m glad he’s sticking around.  He’s not a myth.  If his line doesn’t hold up this year, it will be a long one for him.

“Guys, there’s only so many hours in the day. I can’t french kiss my son AND go to voluntary OTAs c’mon.”

Apparently he wants to spend more time kissing...

Brady might be onto something.  The year he was suspended the first 4 games, they won the Super Bowl.

 

He might just be conserving his energy.

He is in his 40's and the best qb of this generation, guy has earned some extra benefits

 

If, by “benefits”, you mean Jerry and Ed crushing him to the point he decides he went one year too long......I agree!

 

I want to see the decline we got with Kelly. When it’s done it’s done, and it’s often ugly. By late next year his arm will be in decline....and Zay will still be a Bill!

We will. He’s going to decline like all the others - Peyton, Favre, etc. Tbh he looked like crap in the SB, good thing they could run the ball. He’s the GOAT and has nothing left to prove, but he’s playing on borrowed time.

The scheme will change. Brady will no longer be the deadly threat, he will be the weak link with the weak arm. We saw that last year. They can scheme around that..........for a while.  But not for too long.

He has been playing for a long time.  Hes paid his dues.

The guy deserves to skip anything he wants.

 

Kids are getting older Tommy. You might want to consider retiring before they are too old.

I'm pretty sure Thomas has earned the right to skip but he's still a jerk.

Just looked it up - if you include playoff games, Brady is the all-time passing yardage leader, ahead of Manning, Brees, and Favre. He has played in 40 postseason games — 2.5 extra seasons of extremely high intensity games.

they don't count playoff game stats for a reason. Why would you give credence in a comparison for total stats to a guy who has played 2.5 more seasons games than the guys you are comparing him to.?? Too misleading.

 

only way to properly evaluate in a total stats criteria way is players that played regular season games. Or on flip side compare all players post season games in a per game avg..

Whenever I mention to Pats fans that he was declining last year, they just say sarcastically that he declined so much that he won #6.

 

He was terrible in that SB.  One TD drive.  They should have been blown out if LA wasn’t overwhelmed by the moment.

If Tom Brady didn't show up until opening day, it still wouldn't matter. 

 

...or week 5...
