Tom Brady Is PeevedAugust 28th, 2014
Bucs fans wondered how Josh McCown would stay upright three weeks into the regular season the way the offensive line, specifically the guards, were (not) blocking. After just one preseason game, McCown’s life insurance policy was canceled.
This all changed when Bucs general manager Jason Licht went out and obtained All-Pro guard Logan Mankins from the clutches of Bill Belicheat.
But just like McCown maybe have felt like Christmas came early for him, the star quarterbacks of the Patriots, future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, is incensed, per the mouth of Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report.
Cole later appeared on WBZ-FM 98.5 to discuss Brady’s outrage.
“Tom Brady had a very emotional reaction to what happened yesterday,” Jason Cole said on Bleacher Report’s Insider Buzz. “He was not happy with this move. There’s usually a very special bond that you have between offensive linemen and quarterbacks.
”Brady initially, he was very upset about this trade,” Cole added. “We’ll see how he reacts going forward. He usually finds his calm after a day or two. [Brady] was “a little bit angry, a little disappointed, a little sad” about the trade. “That’s the kind of emotional reaction you’re getting [from Brady].”
Joe thinks it is cool that Brady is mad. No, not that Joe gives a rip about Brady. But if Brady is upset, that means Mankins was a valuable commodity to Brady’s health. And if Brady is peeved Mankins is gone, Bucs fans should be raising a glass tonight as the football season begins in earnest. Finally!
