Brady keeps pointing a finger at Pats

Though Patriots quarterback Tom Brady still has not called out any specific players or units by name, it’s becoming increasingly clear that he’s frustrated with the collective efforts of the 52 men who are his teammates in 2010.

A day after taking general aim at the rest of the team in the wake of a surprising loss to the Dolphins, Brady elaborated during a weekly radio spot on WEEI in Boston.

Here’s what he said, via NFL.com.

“I’ve been here 10 years, and I’ve seen a lot of players and teams.  It starts on Monday in our preparation.  It starts on Wednesday through
five hours of meetings and walk-[throughs] that we do, and practice [and]
film study.  I think when it gets hard, that’s when you have to dig
deep.  At times, we do that.  And other times, it doesn’t show up.

“We’ve all got to do a better job of that.  We’ve all got to put more
work in and put more time in
and put more commitment into each other. 
It’s a different team.  We have a lot of new players.  We’re trying, over
the course of the season, learn each other and learn things we do well
and things we don’t do so well.  And that takes a lot of commitment.  I
have a lot of confidence in our team, and I have a lot of confidence
that we do play tough, and we do play physical, and we do play smart . . .
I just don’t think — as coach would say, and he says this to us all the
time — we don’t do it on a consistent basis.”

Though Brady uses “we,” which necessarily includes himself within the scope of his concerns, it’s unlikely that he’s among the players who in his view are failing to put in enough time and show sufficient commitment. 

So why is he continuing to publicly bang this drum?  Our semi-educated guess, after watching how he has conducted himself over the past ten years, remains that he has tried to get through to his teammates via less obvious means, and that nothing he has said behind closed doors has done the trick.

It remains to be seen whether his latest approach makes a difference.

    He should simply point to himself and the O line.

    I like Brady getting upset. He should! The team is not responding to anything else. Brady also needs to elevate his game!

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with what Brady said. All of it is true – this is a team that can play well, just not all the time. Brady isn’t some scrub, he’s the best player on the team and its leader in the locker room. Sometimes you have to get angry to get better.
    The Patriots are going to be screwed if they keep playing like they are now – you could argue they’re the worst division leader (it’d be hard not to) and I don’t really see any chance of them contending for a Super Bowl at this point. This team hasn’t even won a legitimate road game.

    Which is about the only thing that makes sense.
    Won’t stop the thread from having 40+ “crybaby” and “whiner” posts though.

  6. pfinfl says: Dec 8, 2009 7:42 AM

    The fact that he said the same thing again tells me that BB did not tell him to put a sock in his piehole.
    This team has a chemistry problem, and if it isn’t fixed quickly the season will end badly.

  7. Frank says: Dec 8, 2009 7:45 AM

    It looks like he is pointing a finger at everybody, including himself. No story here, just poor journalism on your part, Florio. My teenage daughter watches a show called “Gossip Girls”. You would do well writing for that program.

  8. blackglass says: Dec 8, 2009 7:47 AM

    Good for him. Leaders lead by example…take a guess who the first one has been at Foxboro every morning.

  9. Rustytrombone says: Dec 8, 2009 7:50 AM

    Way to reach Florio. Brady is including himself and not individuals. How in the hell are you considered a journalist?
    Maybe you can break this news “Tiger Woods allegedly cheated on his wife” no one else has this story yet!

  10. slutnuts says: Dec 8, 2009 7:53 AM

    good on him. i hate the pats, and only appreciate brady because of his skill, but sometimes the leader has to stand up and hold the rest of the team accountable. if you think this team’s problem is brady, you’re wrong. sure he isnt putting up 2007 numbers, but he should’nt have to. this team cant stop anyone, and that defense should be the first to hear these comments and look right into the mirror.

  11. Jay16 says: Dec 8, 2009 7:54 AM

    This is a message to Goodell for sure, just read between the lines here. “We can’t prepare without those videotapes can we please have some of them back”

    Maybe he is just being honest.

  13. Facts Domino says: Dec 8, 2009 8:00 AM

    If Peyton Manning spent the past two days bitching, whining and pointing fingers at others, the media would be bashing him for throwing his team under the bus, but not the media darling stetson. He uses “we”. Well guess what. The time the ignorant people felt Manning threw his OL under the bus he used we too. “We had protection problems.
    Just another example of the media being stuck up Brady’s 4,000 flowerpot ass.

  14. Meat Tuperello says: Dec 8, 2009 8:01 AM

    Point the finger in the mirror.
    Give yourself a Bud Adams version as well.

  15. dynast says: Dec 8, 2009 8:25 AM

    Here you go again with this same non-story. Brady said that his team needs to play better to win. Every player says that after losing! Brady’s just stating the obvious cliche here.

  16. bearsrule says: Dec 8, 2009 8:26 AM

    You can practice all day and watch film for hours on end. If you don’t have talented players to run the schemes, they won’t work. The Pats talent isn’t what it once was. All genius’s, even Bill Bilichek, need talent.

  17. PFTiswhatitis says: Dec 8, 2009 8:54 AM

    You’d prefer Brady to be complacent with the meltdown? He wasn’t throwing anyone under the bus just saying they need to perform which is exactly what the fans think.
    Mike you really can do better than this.

  18. hayward giablommi says: Dec 8, 2009 8:55 AM

    The headline is a reach, and his comments are no more of an issue than the team’s uninspired play this season. This is a nonstory.

    I haven’t watched any Patsies ball lately…is Moss starting to dog it yet?

  20. Cardsfan81 says: Dec 8, 2009 9:06 AM

    Here are the issues in New England.
    1. Brady’s not the same player.
    2. Nick Kazur, Matt Light and LeVoir are below
    average NFL tackles.
    3. Belichick is being out-schemed and out-
    coached this season.
    4. Wilfork is not motivated (pay the man !!!).
    5. Richard Seymour is in Oakland (no pass-rush).
    6. No consistent third WR (for their spread
    offense)
    7. Twinkle toes Maroney is not the answer at RB.
    8. Brady needs to keep quite and keep it in house.
    If Belichick calls me up, I could help him straighten this mess out.

  21. Calistin says: Dec 8, 2009 9:19 AM

    Maybe Brady should stop flapping his jaws and maybe, oh I don’t know….lead the team.
    What a pansy little cry baby. At least the way he grimaces and flaps his arms around like a little bitch with a skinned knee anytime he is hit, will ensure him a future Hollywood acting career.

  22. wallyworld says: Dec 8, 2009 9:21 AM

    Maybe they need some more ex Raiders

  23. lezmaka says: Dec 8, 2009 9:27 AM

    If he really wanted to include himself, he should have specified some things he needs to do better, like “I need to stop throwing interceptions at the end of AFC champion games” or “I need to put some pants on and stop whining for roughing the passer every time an opposing player touches me”

  24. Richm2256 says: Dec 8, 2009 9:32 AM

    “The time the ignorant people felt Manning threw his OL under the bus he used we too. “We had protection problems.”
    ————————————————–
    You can’t compare what Manning said to what Brady said.
    When Brady says – TWICE – “”We’ve all got to do a better job of that. We’ve all got to put more work in and put more time in and put more commitment into each other”, he’s including himself in that group, even though every one of those players knows when they look in the miriror that Brady has the most drive and the best work ethic on that team.
    When Peyton Manning says “”We had protection problems.” it’s clear he’s not talking about himself, he doesn’t protect anyone.
    Manning was dead right then, but he clearly was calling out other players and not himself.
    My concern with Brady going public with the “we” stuff is that this is a different Patriots team. Not long ago everyone on that team had pride; you could call them out like Brady just did, and it would have worked. Hell, they wouldn’t have LET it get that far. The players who needed talk like that were in the minority, and the leaders wouldn’t tolerate that mentality. You had to play UP to their level and dedication, and mostly the second and third tier players did or they were gone.
    This team however, lacks that pride from the best player down. There is no “leadership”. You call these guys out, they’re just as likely to tune you out and stop trying. It’s not the offense I’m thinking of, the “name” guys are all still there and can be counted on to have enough pride in themselves to work harder.
    It’s a different defense here, for sure. I thought they’d be okay, that the “name” guys who left had left an imprint on the ones they left behind. Now I worry that that’s not the case. I wonder if Bill Belichick is having those same doubts himself?

  25. Patsfan1776 says: Dec 8, 2009 9:45 AM

    Bdrunk,
    I don’t think Moss is dogging it but I never payed attention to him before he came to NE. However, he has to be one of the most overrated receivers I have ever seen. He never fights for the ball. If he doesn’t catch it clean and in the clear, he isn’t going to make the catch. Also, he is usually too busy pushing the receiver to put his hands up and catch the ball. Every team in the NFL does the corner route jump ball to their tallest receiver when they are in the Red Zone. You never see the Pats do that even though Moss is usually 6 inches taller than his defender. I don’t know if that has to do with Moss or with the fact that Brady usually throws low and in the dirt to Welker and can’t handle the “touch” pass required for the jump ball corner route.

  26. patsSB44champs says: Dec 8, 2009 9:49 AM

    Good for Tom for calling them out. The Pats need to do a better job on both sides of the ball. This is what LEADERS like Tom do.
    The real problem is that we have no pass rush, no running game, and no third receiver.
    Every single Super Bowl champion this decade has had a good to great pass rush, whether it was the Ravens (McCrary and Boulware), these Pats (Seymour, Vrabel, Bruschi), the Bucs (Brooks, Rice, Sapp, etc., etc., etc.), the Steelers (Portapotty, Harrison, Woodley), the Colts (Freeney and Mathis), or the G-Men (Tuck, Umeniyora, Strahan, Kiwanuka, Torbor, among others).
    When we were breaking all the records two years ago, we had Moss and Welker as well as Stallworth and Gaffney. In other words, we had four receivers as opposed to two, and last year, we still had Gaffney, so Cassel had three guys. Our passing game was so good that we didn’t even need a running game.
    Now, even though we have Brady back under center, his return has been offset by less weapons, no running game, no pass rush, and Jonathan Wilhite’s ineptitude in the secondary. We have playmakers on D to be sure (Wilfork, Warren, Mayo, Guyton, Meriweather), which makes our run defense respectable, but none of them are pass rushers. And Richard Seymour wasn’t either, so his absence doesn’t amount to much. We Pats fans will all be laughing come 2011 when Oakland still sucks, Seymour is gone, and we have their #1 pick.
    Essentially, we are two or three pieces away from being a Super Bowl team. As it is, we will win our division, probably beat Denver or Jacksonville in Foxboro, and then make that trek out to Indy for Round 2. Then who knows.

    ______________________________
    There is no chemistry problem, as Belichick does not bring in folks like that unless he has completely vetted them and determined that they fit in.
    Maybe it’s just this: The players aren’t good enough, and maybe they don’t always give 100% every play like they should. Maybe it’s as simple as that.

    I’ll agree with you on 1 and 2, and those are things that won’t get fixed until the offseason (Brady getting more time to recover and get into his usual off-season workouts hopefully will help).
    I’ll agree to a point on #3, the offensive playcalling has been atrocious at times (hey, try another bomb on 3rd and short when you’re trying to drain the clock, its due to work one of these games). I don’t know if he is calling these plays, but since the buck stops with him the blame does fall on his shoulders.
    I think you’re way off on 4 and 7 though. Wilfork is one of the few defenders who seems to be showing up every week, and it looks like he has been playing through pain recently. If he was dogging it there is no way he’d be limping around the field, he’d keep himself off the field. But I do agree that they need to pay him (once they figure out how the labor contract is going to shake out). As for Maroney, the last 3 or 4 weeks its like he is a new man. Much less dancing, much more power running, and I hope he keeps it up. If anything they need to get him more carries to keep defenses honest.

    ________________________________
    1. If by “not the same player,” you mean he’s not throwing 50 TD passes, then you’re right. He also doesn’t have the weapons that he did in 2007.
    2. I would put Sebastian Vollmer at LT (he played well in Light’s absence) and move Light to RT. I would also dump Kazcur altogether.
    3. In Bill We Trust. Still. I just think he needs better personnel. And about the 4th downs, one of the keys to the Super Bowl teams was that Belichick often went for it on 4th and 1 and 4th and 2. And the Pats always moved the chains on those plays. I mean always.
    4. I think Wilfork has had a fine season. The problem is that he is not a pass rusher. He is a run-stuffing nose tackle. Our run defense is not the problem. In fact, we are as strong up the middle on defense as any team in the league. We just don’t have anyone on the outside.
    5. Trust me on this one: Richard Seymour is the most over-rated defensive lineman in the league. All he does is commit stupid penalties. Roughing the passer, late hits, you name it. We do not miss Richard Seymour, and we fleeced the Raiders yet again since we have their #1 pick in the first year of the rookie pay scale.
    6. You’re absolutely spot on about the lack of a third receiver.
    7. Maroney is the one who cost us the Indy game with his goal line fumble. Belichick got him off the hook. Total bust.
    8. Brady needs to be a leader, which means calling out his teammates when necessary. I think a guy who has won three Super Bowls and who played through injuries on Sunday has a right to speak up.
    Finally, I hope you know how to run a defense.

  34. Ytsejamer1 says: Dec 8, 2009 10:24 AM

    Brady needs to stop throwing to the other team in the redzone for starters. That was because he rushed to to get the ball before the playclock expired. And THAT was probably due to the sh!tty coaching they’ve got on the sidelines…the coaching defections have come back to haunt the Pats. There’s no good playcalling offensively and our defensive coordinator is useless. These guys on the sidelines can’t get their heads out their asses quick enough. (that’s why they were so awesome in Indy, calling a timeout right after the five minute TV timeout.) In addition to all that, their play-calling is usually wrong. Finally, we don’t have the same type of players we once did…BB the GM is failing BB the coach.
    But Brady was right to call everyone out collectively, but until the foundation gets set, the play on the field is going to be pathetic as we’ve seen it become.

  35. Area 51 says: Dec 8, 2009 10:26 AM

    Moss needs to be more aggresive going after the ball. He could be absolutely the best WR if he wanted it more.
    The D line needs help w/ pass rush, other QB’s have way too much time, and Henne looked like an all pro Sunday. Keep jugleing in the RB’s to keep them fresh. Get the 3rd WR more chances.

  36. jrillah10 says: Dec 8, 2009 10:31 AM

    The Ken doll at his best. Just like Manning, when things aren’t perfect, it’s everyone’s fault but his. How about hitting Welker wide open in the middle of the field for 6 on the last drive. Shut up and QB.

  37. Josh says: Dec 8, 2009 10:32 AM

    I still don’t have a real problem with Brady doing this. He constantly refers to the team as “we”. He doesn’t say certain people. Presumably unless you have other information, Brady is willing to include himself in the list of people that should give more effort.

    I think at some point in the future a former Patriots player or players are going to write a book and expose this organization for cheating on a massive scale, including intercepting QB-Coordinator communications, stealing signs, and recording QB audibles, faking injuries, etc.

    If you’re chatting with a Pats fan in a bar, just say, “I notice the team hasn’t won a Super Bowl since they turned off the video cameras” and watch the sparks fly. It’s hysterical.
    And the best part is: They haven’t.

  42. Deb says: Dec 8, 2009 10:59 AM

    Lightning in a bottle only lasts so long. That was true of the 70s Steelers, the 90s Cowboys, and it’s true of the 00s Pats. Players get older, suffer injuries and lose a step. Some retire or take big-buck offers to leave. Assistant coaches get picked off. New people come in. The chemisty changes. Young players think just being a Patriot will make them great without realizing the level of physical and mental discipline required. And head coaches may burn out at the thought of starting over with people who don’t have the work ethic of their former players.
    I don’t like the Pats, but I respect what they’ve accomplished. But time catches up to every great team. They’ll work it out and continue to be competitive. But they won’t be the superhuman Patriots of a couple of seasons ago, which would be extremely frustrating for a champion of Brady’s caliber.

    3. In Bill We Trust. Still. I just think he needs better personnel. And about the 4th downs, one of the keys to the Super Bowl teams was that Belichick often went for it on 4th and 1 and 4th and 2. And the Pats always moved the chains on those plays. I mean always.
    ________
    ALWAYS???
    Fourth Down Efficiency:
    2001 – 7/17
    2003 – 9/20
    2004 – 4/10
    In fact, THIS year they have a better percentage than any of those three years (at 8/16).
    Try doing a bit of research before running your uneducated yap. But thanks for exposing yourself as the typical MORONIC Pats fan that you are.

    Richman,
    Are you one of Brady’s sisters or just another puss fan of stetson?
    I don’t have an issue with what Brady said. I don’t have an issue with what Manning said.
    When it comes down to it, Manning included him self as part of the problem, since he helps call the protections.
    Brady is making comments that if he were including himself, just doesn’t make sense. Is he not trying, does he not care?
    Your blind man love of Brady’s spunk doesn’t allow you to see it for what it is.
    Again I don’t have an issue with what he said, but if the ignorant media is going to bash Manning, then they by all means better bash Brady, because his comments are worse if you compare the two.

    Brady and BB are both sore losers, can’t stand either. They’re the first ones to complain when somebody else “disrepects” them.
    Pats haven’t won since 2004 because they’ve let their D slip. They won 3 titles with Brady, a solid line and not much else on offense (Corey Dillon being the exception), but they had a stacked D. Now they have all these playmakers on offense and Brady is putting up these sexy numbers and they haven’t won anything. Isn’t that what Pats fans used to point at Peyton Manning and say?
    How different would the Pats look right now if they had Asante Samuel, Mike Vrabel and Richard Seymour? In order to be a “genius” you need to have great players, they just don’t on D and now their O-line is a disaster.

    Richman, it’s so funny how Cheatriot fans can’t read between the lines. As has been mentioned, Peyton calls the protections according to his reads. It’s VERY obvious that Brady ONLY used the word ‘we’ for political reasons. Did the rest of the team throw (2) 4th Q INTS? Where does he take responsibility for THAT? If Brady DIDN’T say ‘we’, the media would be asking other players hiow they flet about being blamed for Brady’s poor performance in that game. Brady is NOT the same Tom Terrific of lore. Even Cassell – who obviously is NOT a great QB – was able to lead basically the same team to 11-5 last season. Seymour wasn’t very good last season. What you are seeing now is that BB is NOT the genius the was claimed to be. We are seeing the old Cleveland BB now who has a harder time winning with a more typical NFL roster.

    If you’re chatting with a Pats fan in a bar, just say, “I notice the team hasn’t won a Super Bowl since they turned off the video cameras” and watch the sparks fly. It’s hysterical.
    And the best part is: They haven’t.

    Facts D…
    Pats fan here-
    If Brady had prefaced his comments with “I AM TRYING TO BE A GOOD TEAMMATE HERE” like PM did (meaning he ummm..actually was not at all including himself in the problem regardless of what came out of his mouth afterwards) I would be upset with Brady for being a douche as well.
    Happy now?

    Funny to listen to a Steelers fan talking about being a sore loser and whining when someone disrespects them.
    Kind of like how your star receiver disrespected your QB on National TV.
    For a fan of a team that is going to not even make the playoffs with one of the easiest schedules you comments are a joke.
    Pats line is a disaster?? Take a look in the mirror at your line because that is why your QB is a concussed head case because he gets hit far too much by a line that can’t protect him.
    Tomlin sure unleashed hell on the league!! I think he meant he was going to unleash hell Steelers Nation this season

    Richm2256,
    The next time Randy Moss fights for a ball will be the first time he fights for a ball. I don’t think he is dogging it, I just think he lacks the aggression. There is no way he is making the catch that Aiken made the other day.

    It is TOUGH TO WIN in the NFL when you don’t have TAPED DEFENSIVE SIGNALS TO
    REVIEW BEFORE AND DURING GAMES.
    CHEATING CATCHES UP TO YOU.

    The bottom line is cohesiveness. There is none.
    If you look at film from the “dynasty years” (when they won 3 out of 4 Superbowls) there was something that put the “T” in “team” – they were ALWAYS talking to one another on the sidelines. Whenever a squad came off the field (offense, defense or special teams) they gathered around as a unit and talked about what was going on. They got on the same page and were COHESIVE.
    Watch film from any of the games this year. They come off the field and sit on the bench, don’t even look at one another, never mind talk to one another.
    I don’t know if it is the new guys not getting the program, the vets just giving up because of the way the office lets really good players go for next to nothing or what the story is, but there are many issues here that need to be resolved.
    Tom needs to look in the mirror and say “pull your head out” because he is just a shell of his former self. The knee is bothering him more that he or the team wants to admit and that should be obvious to even the most casual observer. That is why his throws have been off.
    My only hope as a fan is that the “injured” players are really not that bad and that Bill is allowing them to fully recover and be close to, if not 100% when the play 0ffs start. If that is the case, then I think they have a chance (slight as it may be) to pull a rabbit out of the hat. But first they have to get together as a TEAM, being cohesive and on the same page for every play.
    But right now, I have to say – stick a fork in them, they are done….

  61. Facts Domino says: Dec 8, 2009 1:43 PM

    Yeah I’m happy that you and others remain ignorant.
    I do agree that Brady is a douche, but not for his recent comments.

    Hey ampats:
    Last time I checked that concussed headcase QB has won 2 Super Bowls since the last time Brady has. I know the Steelers are a mess this year, but so are the pats. The difference is I can admit it, Pats fans can’t be critical of their team even when they’re struggling. I live in the New England area and it’s amazing how the same fans who will trash the Sox after a 95 win season won’t be critical of the Pats when they haven’t won anything in 5 years.
    You’re absolutely right, the Steelers probably aren’t going to the Playoffs, and it makes me angry how this season has gone, but bottom line is they’ve been to the top of the mountain 2 times more recently than the Pats. The Pats were once the model franchise in the NFL, they aren’t anymore. Come talk to me when they put together a decent draft, let alone win another Super Bowl.
