Tom Brady

Short bio: 

Tom Brady is an American football quarterback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). After playing college football for the University of Michigan, Brady was drafted by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

In Brady's 15 seasons as a starter, he quarterbacked the Patriots to seven Super Bowl appearances, the most for any player in history. He's been honored with four Super Bowl MVP awards (Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX, and LI), the most ever by a single player, won two league MVP awards (2007 and 2010), been selected to 12 Pro Bowls, and led his team to more division titles (14) than any other quarterback in NFL history. As of the end of the 2016 season, Brady is fourth all-time in career passing yards, fourth in career touchdown passes, and third in career passer rating. His career postseason record is 25–9, winning more playoff games than any other quarterback, and he has appeared in more playoff games than any player at any position. His 208 combined regular-season and postseason wins are also the most of any quarterback in NFL history. Because of his accomplishments and accolades, many analysts and sportswriters consider Brady to be among the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and because of his late draft selection Brady is considered to be the biggest "steal" in the history of the NFL Draft.

Championships: 

Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, and LI

I believe Roger Goodell should be fired for “Deflategate”. His actions have clearly damaged the integrity of NLF football and forever tarnished the reputation of one of the league’s all-time great players.

Roger Goodell chose to selectively enforce one it’s many rules during the recent Patriots/Colts playoff game. This was not done because the league had any prior concerns that the rule was being broken and that this was impacting results risking the integrity of the game. It was done because an opponent suggested the Patriots may be breaking the rule. The commissioner chose to ignore the accusation and allowed the opponent to effectively perform a sting operation during a playoff game.
During this game, for the first time in the history of the NFL, a football’s air pressure was check after the balls had been released by the officials. The balls were deemed underinflated. The balls were re-inflated and the game proceeded.

A scandal was then created by various rumors and partial information leaks. Roger Goodell fuelled the scandal by failing to clarify anything for a week and delaying any closure by holding an internal investigation that lasted several months resulting in the Wells report. Mr. Goodell then followed up by imposing the largest penalty in the history of the league on the Patriots.
So now the overwhelming perception is that Tom Brady is a liar and a cheat and all his accomplishments are now tainted (get your asterisks ready), a perception that is not justified by the facts and certainly not fair on any level or in any way. I base my conclusions on the following:

1) If ball inflation is so important to the integrity of the game (and since it resulted in the most severe penalty in the history of the game it must be important), why has the NFL never felt it necessary to ever verify the air pressure on a single football before this playoff game. Given that Brett Favre has publically stated he preferred his footballs over-inflated (to an illegal level) and that multiple other quarterbacks have made similar statements about having illegal preferences, it is more probable than not that this rule has been broken many times by many players/teams in the past. But no footballs were ever tested so no one can ever know how many times this “rule” has been broken or how many teams/players broke this rule.

2) After many years of ignoring this rule, the rule is enforced for the first and last time against the Patriots. This is the ultimate case of selective enforcing where a rule is enforced only once on only one team. I dare anyone to defend selectively enforcing a rule on a single individual. It is not fair and it is not justifiable. It’s a complete and total abuse of power.

3) It’s telling how no one even questioned the statement in Wells report that there was insufficient time to re-test all the Colts footballs. There was time to test all the Patriots footballs and the testing delayed the start of the second half. So why stop after testing 4 Colts footballs? Not that the Colt footballs needed testing. How stupid would the Colts be to use illegal footballs when they conspired to made sure the balls would be tested during game?

4) The impact of deflating balls is unknown but certainly the current perception is way over-blown. If you use the only exemplar that exists (Brady’s first-half vs second-half results) the evidence is that Brady’s performance was clearly hindered by the ball deflation.

5) An extensive investigation is performed and no evidence is found that Tom Brady deflated footballs, told anyone to deflate footballs or knew anyone deflated footballs. Let me repeat that, the Wells report contains no evidence that Tom Brady did anything wrong. But the report concludes that “it is more probable than not that Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of… ”. How is it fair to destroy someone’s legacy based on a probability or general awareness? After reading the entire report, I can say the report supports the conclusion. The sum of the details and interpretations justify the conclusion. But the Wells report comes from some reality I am not familiar with. The world is a messy place. Nothing is 100% white or black. Everything is shades of grey, full of inconsistencies and conflicting details. But the Wells report only contains details that support the conclusion and every detail is interpreted in the way most damaging to Tom and the Patriots. So either in some sort of cosmic anomaly all the facts of this case are pristine and clear or the report is incomplete and/or biased. Where are any alternate interpretations (like Tom made it clear he wanted the balls at the lowest legal pressure but others maybe did not have such clear limits)? Where are the details about what happened before the game and the history of the rule (and its lack of enforcement)? A reread of the Wells report with even the tiniest bit of skepticism makes it feel like a collected set of cheery-picked “facts” chosen to provide a desired conclusion. If Mr. Wells disagrees, I challenge him to release all the drafts of his report. But given the “fact” that more probable than not, any detail that contradicted or cast doubt on the guilty conclusion was removed as the document evolved, I can pretty much guarantee Mr. Wells will never release the revisions.

The man has worked as hard or harder than anyone else who ever played the game. He worked to make himself and his teammates the best they could be. The result has been unprecedented success. But because of this Roger Goodell fiasco, Tom Brady will forever be labeled a liar and a cheat and his brilliance will always be tainted.

But the unasked question is where does this go in the future? If I were a head coach, I’d be pursuing the rule book looking for more unenforced rules that I could use in a sting to compromise a hated opponent. With the bar now “more probable than not”, no one is safe from a well-organized media/sting attack. The league has real, serious issues to be dealt with (concussions). How much more time will the commissioner waste handling (enabling) owner/coach vendettas against other owners/coaches/players? Time for Goodell to go.

brady cheated and he's mad because he got caught. Then Brady feel's that he's so important to football that he can't be suspended. Remember judge's ruling was on the NFL's process. He never ruled the Brady didn't cheat. Brady feels it's ok to cheat just don't get caught.

Tom is so concerned about his legacy. He shouldn't be , it's secure. Just as Mark Mcquire and Lance Armstrong's legacy are secure. Tom Brady is a cheater.

You people are so niave. There is a massive power grab going on in pro sports / media. Obviously the NFL is way out in front and they don’t want to relinquish that. Despite having major issues that would derail other sports instantly, the NFL thrives on gambling and fantasy, it can do no wrong as long as the money flows. All the NFL needs to do at this point is stay in the limelight 365 to get enough clicks and calls via sports talk radio to show the major players (Network TV and Media affiliates) that it deserves the massive payouts currently in play. This entire issue has been so blown out of proportion for simply “ratings” is is sick. They want us talking and clicking “Brady” so we aren’t talking NBA or MLB. However, by going after Brady they made a big mistake. Goodell is a pawn and he will ultimately be heavily damaged if not canned over this petty scandal. Anyone can sell the NFL right now, he’s trying to strong arm to save his ass, won’t happen.

First of all, I want to make it clear that you are my role model. As I played high school football, I looked up to you as a leader on the football field. I am your hugest fan and considered you the best QB! Secondly, I hate asking you this but I was in need of some money. But not for me personally, for my school and education. My family is struggling financialy and seeing that you have plenty of it, I was seeing if you could find it in your heart to donate some of it towards a 19 year old in a little city called Brownsville,TX! I really hope you read this.. Love you man. PS I am your biggest fan!

Tom, who handles the football as much, or more often then the QB? The Refs. They spot the ball every play. If a QB can tell the difference in a deflated ball; why doesn't/didn't the Refs feel the difference?
I haven't heard anyone mention this fact! Charles C Whiteaker, "M" Track - '50 & '51

Tom, it looks like nobody in the NFL can stop the Pats from getting you your 5th. championship ring in 2016. I know you want it real real bad, because you are dedicated to winning all the time no matter what the situation is. It makes no matter to you cause you are not rattled by anything. Rogers, Manning, will not keep you from winning again, this is your mindset. Am I right or wrong on this matterr? I am a Colt's fan, but I have watched you all your career, I know you are tough inside as well. Care to comment back to me concerning all this or WHAT!

Dear Tom Brady,

I am a fifth grade student at the Graham & Parks School in Cambridge, MA. I am in a soccer league, and that is why I chose this topic for my persuasive essay: playing sports is worth the risk of getting injured. It would mean the world to me for you to answer these questions.

1. Can you tell me a story about a time you got injured but didn't quit?

2. Can you explain to me what the impact of sports has done for your life?

3. Has playing sports helped you control your emotions?

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely, Leo Rothenberg

Tom, My daughter is a huge fan of you and the patriots. It has been a long-time dream of hers to watch you play forever. We watch all the games together or over Skype. I am giving her a trip to see you and the Patriots destroy the Browns at Cleveland in October for her college graduation next week. If there is a chance you could drop her a video message on her upcoming attendance at the game, I am sure it would blow her mind. Not sure how to do this but I can send you her email address or you can send it to me if you have some time. Thanks for anything you can do. I look forward to attending the game in Cleveland. Go you Pats!

Tom,
Don't forget how Drew Bledsoe supported you when you took over his position. I remember he gave you a high five when you threw your first touchdown pass. Yet you turned your back on Jimmy G. when he threw his first TD pass. It's obvious on the sideline that you ignore him. Act like a Captain towards your teammates. Is the reason why you're making excuses to miss practices and not show up for game for you don't want to work with him?

My daughter Davia Hines is someone special!! Not because she's my daughter. At a young age she went though a tough childhood. She is a only child and was always around her dads best friend Pete who we now call Uncle. And her Stepdad Junior who played on the Dodgers back in 1990-92. At 11 years she starting watching football and studiying the players and plays of all the NFL teams. She has passion for everything she loves. She started playing softball at 9 years old and is very talented. She came in 5th place nationwide and has had a lot of awards. Her odds were against her. In middle school she starting giving up. Her father and I divorced when she was 2 years old. We were both struggling with our addictions, but were there for her the best we could. In High School she started off not wanting to go to school, but I sat down with her and I talked her and explained how important it was to go to school and follow her dream and not to end up like myself. Since then she's has a 4.0 gpa. She plays shortstop, she made Varsity as a Freshman and has received All League DVL as a Freshman and Sophmore. She broke her Toe last June 2016. Right before Travel Ball was about to start. This affected her a lot. To where she wanted to quit softball. She's known and followed you for years. She has known about you since she was 7 years. Her father is a Chargers Fan so she had to become a Charger Fan but her team she loved was Tom Brady's Team the Patriots. She loves your passion and heart for the game and life itself. I can keep going and going. I'm praying that you can send her a letter of encouragement, a picture . She's coming back and wanting to play softball after her injury but her mental state we will see. She named her car Tom Brady! Hopefully you can do this for my daughter which would do so much for her future. Thank you.

Mr. Brady, my wife is a major fan of yours, so much so she has your autographed jersey she got from a charity auction hanging in her barber shop. She was hoping that if one day you happened to be in the area of Glendale AZ, if you could stop by her shop. She'd dearly love a picture of the both of you in front of your jersey.

Tom, I need to apologize for ever thinking you or your team cheated, for that I am sorry. I am not a Pat's fan and have never thought you were the best but after that Super Bowl win, you are the BEST EVER! After hearing you have a friendship with President Donald Trump I respect you for that. I hope you continue to support him, the USA needs him to do the very best job he can for EVERYONE not just those who supported him. I have become a Tom Brady fan and will pray for you and your family. Thanks for changing this old guy's mind.
