PFT PM takes a look at the Tom Brady situation, and more

PFT PM

So what exactly is going on with the Patriots? Glad you asked. Because I asked plenty of questions on this topic on Monday, while speaking with Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston.

What’s the problem between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick? What does Brady want? What will happen next?

Here’s what will happen next: You’ll listen to Monday’s PFT PM to hear what Curran had to say, specifically in response to my question regarding whether Patriots fans should be at least a little worried that Tom Brady will pull a Barry Sanders and retire late in the offseason.

There’s also plenty more, including various other topics of the day and answers to many of your questions. We’ll do it again on Tuesday, if for no reason other than a new group that has dubbed itself the #PFTPMPosse demands it.

  1. Despite the media narrative, there IS no Brady “situation”. Brady hasn’t been a regular at these “voluntary” workouts since prior to 2010 when he had 2 young kids. Don’t take my word for it, Peter King did a 2010 MMQB piece on it.

    Maybe the “sky is falling” narrative makes for easy articles for the mediots and fuels clicks. Hey, it got me to respond, so you must be doing something right. ;). But the reality is that Brady will be a committed QB for the Pats for at least the next 2 years. Gronk wants more money but has zero leverage. Perhaps the Pats will offer him an additional incentive package like they did last season. Perhaps, if he acts like a dick, (which he hasn’t thus far) they won’t. That will play out over the next 3 months.

    My guess is that Gronk will play this year and have an outstanding season, and Bill will move him for the 2019 season. (a year too early rather than a year too late)

  2. Brady is an idiot. He is getting older.
    He is one hit away from not being able to live the life he would like.
    He should stay home and sleep late every morning with his super-model wife, in whichever of their mansions he feels like, while watching his kids grow up. (While he can still walk like a normal person.)

    By that logic every NFL starter that’s ever signed a 2nd contract is an idiot.

    =========================
    It’s obvious to me the intention was “Brady ISN’T an idiot”.

    I guess not so obvious apparently to the thin skinned Pat fans.

  5. Ahh, it’s a long offseason. All the drama will be put to rest in time and Tom Brady will be playing for the next 2 years at least. There is no way that they shipped Jimmy G out without a minimum of a 2 year commitment from Brady, it would have made zero sense, and Brady has been great to the team and owner over the years. He’s not about to pull the rug out from under them. Gronk will be back after all of this posturing. Too much money on the table not to do so and he’ll probably walk when Brady walks.

  6. Please, I don’t usually beg, but I’m begging. Stop these malicuous threads. It’s beneath you. I watched Curran at event held by one of the top Patriots players. There was a private room for the players. Curran didn’t get invited inside. He was out in the cheap seats. His conjecture is just that, conjecture.

  7. Tom Brady plays to satisfy his goal 0f being the “GOAT” of the NFL!
    Who among us would not desire to be the epitome of the “Best Ever” at our profession?
    Do any of us question that Tom’s motivation is driven by “proving himself” as opposed to getting more money?
    Would Tom Brady be driven to be the subject of prominent statues at “Fanuel Hall” or the “Hall of Fame” in Canton, OH?
    If you have a pulse and any level of “Brain Activity” please realize that this is truly a rhetorical quesion.
    Brady is the definiton of a “man on a mission” driven to rewrite the history books of the NFL greats.
    Tom Brady was “underestimated” in high school, college “overlooked” at Michigan and totally “undervalued” in the NFL draft.
    Billicek was called “certifiablycrazy” when he continued to start Tom Brady at QB rather than Drew Bledsoe the undisputed “Number one!” pick in the NFL draft.
    Remember, Drew Bledso took New England to the “Super Bowl” in 1985.
    The New England fan base was furious that Tom Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe when he was able to return.
    There are people among us, that strive for “greatness” and Tom Brady is among them.
    Mortality drives a passionate person to endure hardship, riducule and personal sacrifice. Tom Brady is the very definition of this extreme level of passion!
    Brady will play until he decides to call it quits. He earned this distinction and Patriot fans will recognize these facts in 2018/2019!
    Amen!

  8. Tom Brady is all about winning, and all about the team. I always figured, when it was time for him to retire, we’d hear about it after he played his last game, not before. He wouldn’t make some big announcement before the season, and then be a big distraction. That’s not Tom. So I’m sure there is something going on in New England. It’s not just rumors. Besides, anyone working for the Patriots would be the last to speak about it publically. That’s not the Patriots’ way.
