Kansas City Star — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is many things. A four-time Super Bowl champion. A three-time Super Bowl MVP. A two-time NFL MVP. …
And Brady has never forgiven the NFL for its unsuccessful attempt (so far) to suspend him for whatever role he may have played in the Deflategate scandal in last year’s AFC Championship Game.
Brady, 38, played like a man possessed as the Patriots raced to a 10-0 start this season, reminiscent of 2007 when New England went 16-0 in regular season.
Even as injuries struck the team, Brady kept raising his game. … Brady completed a franchise-record 402 passes for 4,770 yards — the fourth-most of his career. He led the NFL with 36 touchdowns to 10 different players and threw just seven interceptions.
“This may be his best season ever,” said Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts, who will broadcast Saturday’s game for CBS.
What the actual hell? Like this Patriots week hasn’t already been bizarre enough, with the coach coming up with a mysterious black eye, Chandler Jones having a freakout like the teenager in a 1950s anti-marijuana health class film, and conflicting reports about why Rob Gronkowski is missing practices. Now we get this?
The Kansas City papers are writing love letters to Tom Brady? Has the world gone mad? Where’s the anger? Where’s the phony-baloney sanctimony about all his cheating with his conniving coach and his arrogant organization? Where’s the discrediting of all that he’s accomplished and unsubtle digs at his manhood and family life? Instead we get a tribute so glowing I wouldn’t even have written it. And I make a living posting stuff about Brady that would embarrass a girl who writes “Twilight” fan fiction.
I’ve been looking for some quality hatred out of the Kansas City media, but this is the best I can do. I’m ready to kick their door in and come in with both guns blazing, and instead I’m getting welcomed in and served coffee and pie in the living room. And it’s killing me. I waited all year for the Pats to be in the playoffs and so far all I’ve gotten is disappointment, controversy and an opponent playing nice, and I need it to be over. They can’t kick this ball off fast enough.
