Trent Brown: All that “bullcrap” said about me slandered my name

Trent Brown has a fondness for the word “bullcrap.” Last week, the Patriots left tackle characterized criticism of the “Patriot Way” as “bullcrap.”

This week, he referred to the “bullcrap” said about him while he was in San Francisco.

“I just feel like me coming here with all the bullcrap that’s been said about me and my name has been slandered, me coming here and shattering all those bad things that have been said about me, I think that’s helped me out a lot,” Brown said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

The 49ers traded Brown to the Patriots after drafting offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey with the ninth overall draft pick. Whispers about his lack of film study and preparation followed him out the door.

“That was the word of mouth or whatever,” Brown said. “Even before I got drafted, people said I don’t work hard. I’m just a quiet guy. I’m not a rah-rah guy. I show up to work. I’m not here to make friends or anything like that. I’m doing the same thing here that I’ve been doing. I feel like if it’s good enough for this type of organization, it should be good enough anywhere.”

Brown admits not spending much time studying opponents.

“I feel like I don’t need to watch film,” he said. “I play my game and use the techniques my coaches teach me and be able to work on daily. And people have to come play Trent Brown.”

It worked for Brown this season in New England as he started all 16 games at left tackle, seemingly finding a home on a Super Bowl team.

  1. Was it bullcrap when you showed up to multiple camps 50 pounds overweight?

    You were liked in SF and are mainly only gone because you don’t fit the scheme.

    But also because regardless of whether you can play (and you can), you had 1 more year to free agency and are a big risk for a big contract.

    And you may be loving Pats life now, but they are gonna let some other team pay you. You may get franchised for a year, but some other team is going to be the one figuring out what is or isnt bullcrap with mid 8 figures on the line.

  2. So everything said about him is bs but then he says “I feel like I don’t need to watch film”, Which is it buddy

  3. The Patriots will get a compensatory draft pick when they let him go in the off-season. That’s why they like these kinds of deals.

  4. If he didn’t work hard he wouldn’t have been kept on the Pats roster plain and simple. Whatever he’s done to prepare its generally worked very well. Scar has him coached up nicely.

    We were specifically told NE doesn’t have any fun.

    Lane Johnson told us this.

  6. “The Patriots will get a compensatory draft pick when they let him go in the off-season.”

    I fully expect the Pats to re-sign him. He’s played very well here. Pats Oline only gave up 21 sacks in the regular season and none so far in the post season. Brown was a big part of that protection

  7. “See, I never just did things just to do them. Come on, what am I gonna do? Just all of a sudden jump up and grind my feet on somebody’s couch like it’s something to do? Come on. I got a little more sense then that.

    …Yeah, I remember grinding my feet on Eddie’s couch.”

    I don’t because they can’t afford him. Flowers comes first and Brady will get another raise.

    Wynn is the future LT under a rookie deal.

    If Solder got 12 mil per, what do you think Brown can command?

  9. Singularly the worst trade the 49ers have made in decades.. And the assessment of his skills and work ethic was so far off the mark you wonder what those who were part of the analysis on Trent are doing in football. Just atrocious.. The guy is hands down, no doubt, one of the best Tackles in all of football..

    And the knock he can’t zone block is a joke.. He can zone block with any tackle in the league.. He toys with defenders..

  10. I hope he really loves being a Patriot & wants to sign a 4 year deal say 36 million with 30 guaranteed….. I think that sounds reasonable for all parties

  11. 6 foot 8 and about 350-360 pounds. Watch how quickly he moves his feet, his explosiveness and how he moves laterally. It’s pretty incredible fro someone of that stature. I thought he looked equally good on the run as the pass this year. In the San Diego game when Gronk was lining up next to him the two of them were blowing up the LB’s and Bosa (just long enough). What a treat. If he stays healthy and in shape and keeps getting excellent coaching he has an even higher ceiling.

  12. Brown should not feel bad at all……….now the Giants on the other hand are paying 60 million for a LT that isn’t any better than Trent!! Pats are paying him bout 800,000.00 yr. lol
    Maybe it’s the Giants that should be feeling bad….hahahah😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  13. He’s always been a very good pass blocker. He can’t run block very well at all. He’s so massive it’s hard for him to bend and the waste and move with explosiveness.

    Plus, he just admitted that all the criticisms about him are true….

    His replacement, Mcglinchey, is already an elite run blocker and a showed promise as a pass blocker. He’ll be a 10 year starter with pro bowl potential.

  14. Seems to me Scar has the OL so prepared that if they do watch film they already seen it in practice.0 sacks in the playoffs.21 sacks during the season proves that.This against teams that have the “blueprint”on how to stop Brady.
    If he wants to break the bank NE will not sign him but if what his family said about him “being happy playing football again” is true then maybe he will take a reasonable offer and stay in NE.

    Because Solder got 12 a year so this guy is getting offered at least that. There is loving being a Patriot and there is leaving three million a year on the table.
