Just because TB is a great player doesn't mean he's a great coach. If this is the first season he's being asked to "train" WRs...maybe he just doesn't have the patient to be a good coach. Besides, he has turned into a prima dona 3-4 years now, this isn't new. It's only ironic cuz pats fans used to rag on poutin peyton any time they got a chance. Now we have our own version in town.
Boy, I really disagree with Brady being characterized as a prima donna. I see zero evidence of that. He has restructured his contract at least twice. He lost almost 90% of his passing yardage to trades or injuries and refuses to use that as an excuse for his suddenly mortal passing numbers. He clearly seemed to celebrate every significant ball caught by his rookies receivers. Those are not the actions of a prima donna. I continue to believe that if the Patriots go deep in the playoffs this year, then this will be Brady's greatest performance as a leader. Yes, the team is more dependent on the running game and defense this year but he is still making key passes at critical times.
Amen and ...amen.
Larry Bird once called his teammates sissies - and he was right. He also led by example and his teammates followed him to a title. Brady also leads by example. He demands execution, but he is always accountable. it is whynhe is the greatest winner in this town since Bill Russell.
Some of the posters on this site should be locked up and forced to watch an endless loop of Marc Wilson lowlights.
He also called himself a sissy. And, in 1984, he wasn't showing his teammates up and staring them down. They also weren't rookies.
What a stupid parallel.
Anyone agreeing with Anonymis is a troll.
Brady has not won an offseason award in YEARS, basically since he met Gizzy and moved to LA to build some gaudy mansion. Not a coincidence, these new WRs are looking good, further along than the new ones in years past.
Leadership shouldn't need to be showcased in front of a camera like Brady to tries to demonstratively do all the time. It's more so what he did this offseason, like getting in here and working with new players so it appears he's not above that.
That's an excellent example of the leadership I'm talking about.
