Monday’s PFT Live podcast takes a close look at the ESPN Tom Brady interview

Last night, I posted a little something about Tom Brady’s intriguing ESPN interview, during which he addressed for the first time his wife’s claim that he has played with multiple concussions. On Monday morning, I spent some time peeling the onion during a PFT Live podcast.

The issue has plenty of layers and levels and it invites speculation as to a variety of questions, including ESPN’s inexplicable failure to hype the comments before they aired or to showcase them after the fact.

The Monday PFT Live podcast also includes some talk about the excellent (but not as excellent as it could have been) All or Nothing season focusing on the Rams.

  1. Brady answered the questions appropriately and with poise. A lot of people wanted him grilled until he was forced to call his wife a liar, or confirm he was deliberately concealing concussions from the league office. Tom has been dealing with the media for quite some time, and isn’t going to fall into that trap.

    We know how Brady is going to respond to these questions now. Its all about a loving wife concerned about her husband. Time for the scribes to move on to the next sinister scandal.

  2. Mike-
    I heard your podcas. I really doubt a lot of Patriot fans are objecting to your conclusion that Brady may have agreed with his wife’s comments. It’s his brain and all of us hope for his own health and future’s sake that he isn’t concealing them and playing when he shouldn’t.

    With that said – there is no evidence that the team was aware that Brady had concussions and made him play anyway. The independent spotters designed to protect players did not intervene when he got hit and therefore the protocol was followed.

    I believe NFL players would “play through anything” if they wanted to. The fact is if Brady or anyone else concealed concussions that’s a problem with the protocol and testing. Peyton Manning himself is on record admitting he deliberately botched the baseline test so he could play through any concussion and he isn’t the only one.

    It’s not an easy problem to solve.

  3. Tee hee πŸ™‚ Patriot Hater is a bunch of morons who know absolutely nothing about football or the NFL.

    Thumbs down if you agree!

    πŸ™‚

  4. I’m glad all the thumbs downers agree with me πŸ™‚ Well in this case one wussy who I permanently occupy in his head that he has to put in the time and effort to do so πŸ™‚ Yoy must REALLY agree and I’m glad you came around to facts and truth.

    I own you cupcake πŸ™‚ Let that soak in. Let that marinate. Are you seething yet? Yes you are. I so freaking own you πŸ™‚ You are NOTHING boy! πŸ™‚ May you never stop being obsessed with the superior fans of the World Champion Patriots.

    Cheers cupcake!

    πŸ™‚

  5. Am I the only suprised Brady gave himself up to ESPN for this E60? Or even allowed their cameras with him?

    Cmon Tom I know your a stand up classy guy. But we would all be better off if you gave this interview with CBS, Barstool or even PFT. Keep ESPN out of Pats nation.
