Brady's a baby--he threw three tantrums Thursday night on National TV. Holding his hands to his helmet, more than once--it wasn't so he could hear the play call. Then at least once on the sidelines.
He wasn't exactly on top of his game and he chose to take it out on some young kids who are still learning the game. He's lucky he didn't run his mouth off against Mankins--he would have made short work of our darling.
He acted like a bully, yes a bully, something we are trying to remedy in society knowing the kids aren't going to stand up to him in Week 2. The darling of New England may not have realized this was America watching. This was something he could have saved for halftime but instead he embarrassed himself, his family, owner, coach and fellow players. He should be required to become the National Spokesperson for Anti Bullying in America after that tirade: "This IS an EX. of bullying."
Frankly, I'm sick of all this silly talk about bullying. SICK OF IT. It's more of that soft, super sensitive crap that has made people into whiny, self centered, self serving, babies. In basic training, people yelled at us when we screwed up. They punished us when we screwed up. Sometimes they cracked a clipboard over our heads when we screwed up. Guess what happened? WE STOPPED SCREWING UP. Pressure to perform creates an atmosphere where people try harder, concentrate harder, and get things right. A nation of soft sad sissies is what we are becoming with all this stupid bullying crap.
Brady was mad. He acted mad. He let guys know they were screwing up. He didn't hit anyone, spit on anyone, or call anyone bad names. These young guys need to feel pressure to learn the way to do things, and to carry out their assignments correctly. I don't care if they are upset that they got yelled at. Do right and you won't get yelled at. PERIOD.
If they lose confidence because they got yelled at, I guess that they had pretty poor confidence to begin with.
This will get corrected and be forgotten by week 4. And we WON THE DAMN GAME.
Unfortunately, this mentality is just as damaging as the aforementioned one -- just on the polar opposite end of the spectrum.
Neither here nor there, though. No business going into it.
