Brady Commitment Questioned

May 20th, 2020

A Patriots beat writer is pointing a virtual finger at Tom Brady and saying, ‘See. See. See.’

Ryan Hannable covers the Patriots for Boston sports radio giant WEEI, and he took to their website to bark about Brady working out yesterday at Berkeley Prep private school in Tampa with his Bucs teammates. It’s proof, Hannable says, that Brady wasn’t all-in with New England.

Brady engaging in a spring practice is the “evidence.”

Although some examples were not as big as others, Tom Brady changed in his final few years as a member of the Patriots.

The biggest example was the lack of commitment to his teammates during the offseason, as for his final two seasons he did not attend OTAs during the spring and only attended the three days of mandatory minicamp.

As for why he did not attend these workouts, last June Brady cited family reasons. …

This clearly is evidence the Patriots quarterback was not the same guy in his last few years in New England. Brady no longer was doing everything in his power to make sure he and the rest of the offense were as prepared as possible for the upcoming season.

As for the reason why?

Perhaps Brady knew his time in New England was coming to an end and if that were the case it’s natural to no longer put forth the same effort as before. Think about it, if you’ve accepted a new job, are you going to work equally as hard as you did for your old employer?

Joe found this a little comical considering the Patriots won the Super Bowl during the 2018 season. Brady explained on The Howard Stern Show last month that his supermodel wife had been pressuring him to invest more offseason time with his family and he decided to do that in recent years.

Regardless, Brady is all-in now with his teammates as he tries to learn on the run without the benefits of official team practices. Joe hopes all Patriots fans are jealous and bitter.

    Sounds like a jealous ex to me.

    I love asking New England patriot fans how they feel about TB12 being a Buccaneer now. Alot of them are pissed, but many will be watching the Bucs in 2020.

    Pretty surreal for NE Pats fans overall, but i do enjoy rubbing the nub a little

    They have to get use to the same words. He is gone. Like it or not he is on another another team. They can be mad all they want. Say what ever. Move on. Brady is a Buccaneer now.

    Dude’s butt hurt fo sho.

    TB just tryna get out of the house, like everybody else.

    Nitpicking by jilted fans…
    He spent 20 years in basically the same system.. I totally get letting the newer players come in and learn the plays and when they have a grasp on it, then Brady joins them… They still produced winning seasons…

    The difference this year is not only new teammates but he himself has to learn the playbook and system… Kudos to him for not relying on his QB skills alone!

    Still can’t believe we Got Brady and Gronk for a 4th round draft pick. If we get 2 solid years from those guys and a 🏆 or 2 and the changed national perception abour the franchise and the desirability to watch them compete, then that has to,be the biggest off season win ever.

    Eff the chowder heads.

  8. Durango 95 Says:

    Moral of the story. Even when Brady emotionally divests he can still win a super bowl. Impressive.

  9. BringBucsBack Says:

    Are ALL Massholes…well…Massholes? 20 years & 6 ‘ships with the goat & it’s still not enough.

    So does this mean that Brady is now neglecting his children once again?

  10. Buc50 Says:

    Wasn’t Brady in 2 of the last 3 Superbowls? How committed do you have to be to satisfy Boston Fan.

  11. Hodad Says:

    Brady knew he was out of NE before the start of last season yet still managed to get them 12 wins, and a playoff birth. I’ll take that level of non commitment any day. Twenty friggin years, and 6 SB victories, and the dudes upset about Brady’s last year. Wait till NE sees what the next twenty years looks like without him.

    When I worked in “sports journalism” I suspect some around me were irritated because I respected the second word as much as the first. I wasn’t there just to enjoy the experience but to inform our viewers with accurate information.

    I respect different venues that value opinion more than journalism… long as it’s clear.

    One of the major reasons I respect Joe…in fact perhaps the MAJOR reason I respect him so much…HONESTY. When he wants to rant he simply says I’m going to rant. He honestly acknowledges that he writes about what interests him. He let’s opposing opinions largely run free unless they include legal hazard or defame a player personally.

    This guy obviously had an axe to grind. Perhaps Brady wasn’t nice enough to him. We’ll never really know.

    But his article reveals he’s not only not a “journalist” who cares about accuracy but his opinion is manure!

    Joe made the best point with the SB of 2018. Brady had the Pats ahead of the Eagles and it took Doug Pederson outcoaching the vaunted Bill Belicheat defense with a “trick” play.

    And of course the year before…Brady saved Belicheat’s bacon with his horrid defense giving up a fast 28 points to the Falcons. It took him double OT but TB12 created the largest comeback in SB history.

    Somewhere along the line I suspect Brady gave this guy a metaphorical finger and he never forgot it.

    PLEX said it best. This guy acted like a whiny little jilted girlfriend.

    What a crock! Did that writer sustain a head injury recently?

  14. SOEbuc Says:

    I think Brady is taking this seriously.He totally busts at the end of his long career is his plan? He would probably like to finally put the icing on the cake with a home stadium Super Bowl win. His family has butt-loads of money. The guy just loves football and is still elite.

    They should change the call letters to Radio Giant WAAH…

    It’s because he’s white, right big hog?


    Maybe it was simply money…

    I was about to comment about that!

    Tom Brady is the best there ever was. He did not need to attend back then anyway…everyone knew the offense. He had his guys.

    He’s getting together now because everyone is new to him and he is a winner, so he knows he has to learn about his teammates.

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I take beat writers with a grain of salt. They are desperate to get attention these days, because theirs is a dying art form. So they try to stir the pot.

  21. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wouldn’t it be something…and poetic…if the Bucs beat the Patriots in the next Superbowl.

    Man, that would be a ratings bonanza for the build up, and Brady would REALLY want to win that game to prove it wasn’t Bill all that time.

    Nailed it!

    This dude is just butt sore. If I were a Patriots fan, I’d be mad as hell too.

  24. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Agree totally with your first post.

    Don’t disagree about the interest in a Patriots Bucs SB in Tampa but I have mixed feelings. Certainly would be poetic and HUGE for the NFL.

    But I loathe BB. If Brady gets us to the playoffs and the Pats miss out that will mean Belicheat keeps his record. NO Super Bowl appearance without TB12. In fact BB has only made the playoffs once in his first six years as an HC.
