With nine seasons sharing the same locker room at Foxborough, Tedy Bruschi knows Tom Brady better than most analysts.
As such, he offered interesting advice to new teammates for the Brady Buccaneers in an ESPN story written by Jenna Laine.
It’s pretty Belichickian.
“They need to recover from Brady. Because they hit the sidelines and all of a sudden it’s like, “It’s okay, Tom is going to bail us out.” That’s what I call watching Brady, “Bruschi told Laine. “I’m going to watch … if they watch Brady or if they feel as a team that everything is important, and not only when this guy over there is under the center and everything is going to happen by magic. “
The former linebacker also wants the phrase “GOAT” to be deleted from their vocabulary. Anyone who uses Brady’s nickname “Greatest Of All Time” would get a bite of Bruschi soap.
“If these players see it as that four letter word, they better get over it,” said Bruschi. “The word four letters is a word I will not use to describe it. It’s this farm animal, it starts with G. I don’t do that. Because it’s almost like putting it on a pedestal. It’s like, man, you’re still the same guy I caught in training and took $ 20 from. Go on. “
Sure, it sounds like an old Patriot, doesn’t it?
Brady’s time with the Buccaneers certainly started off in an eventful way. The quarterback was started in a closed park for breaking coronavirus rules and accidentally broke into the wrong house last week.
Tampa Bay Mayor Jane Castor quickly sent a letter to Brady and Rob Gronkowski saying that these minor transgressions were already under bridge.
“Tom, I apologize for the poor communication when you arrived – not the best first impression,” Beaver wrote. “But given my background in law enforcement, I couldn’t help but have someone investigate the sighting of a wild goat in one of our beautiful city parks. No harm – no mistakes, and thank you for being a good sport. “
