Former OL: You Won’t Stop Brady

June 24th, 2020

Talks Tom Brady and NFLPA.

Former guard Geoff Schwartz knocked around the NFL for six seasons, long enough to craft a side career as a writer and a part-time host on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

He loves to Twitter and specifically, Twitter about football and more so about blocking.

Amid the mini-controversy (if you believe national outlets) of park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady hosting a practice with several teammates yesterday, despite pleas from the players’ association to not practice in order to avoid “The Sickness,” count Schwartz on Brady’s side.

In short, Schwartz said it is unreasonable to expect players to stay home alone with training camp expected to open in a month. Schwartz believes it is particularly foolish to expect lesser players with far less job security than Brady to just shut it down and wait for camp.

@geoffschwartz: Players will continue to work out to prepare for the season. They aren’t going to listen to the PA here. If they aren’t prepared for the camp, do they get to use that excuse to teams. “The PA said we can’t workout together so I wasn’t ready”. That’s the reality for players.

That’s a helluva point.

Why should players take the foot off the gas when their contracts are not guaranteed? These workouts, no matter how loose they may be, could mean the difference of a guy surviving the bubble or the player fumbling with a SmartKey applying for a job at a Walmart kiosk.

With Brady being the workaholic he is, he’s more likely to fly the Bucs to his Montana ranch to work out than he is to cancel practicing.

What do you think Brady would do with a month to kill? Chase off gawkers on boats floating by Derek Jeter’s house like an old man yelling at kids for playing football in the street?

    Of course all players will continue to workout

    ……….it is 100% unreasonable considering that being in top physical and mental condition results in the direction of their livelihoods.

    This is real life consequences for all these professional aesthetes and no one will care later on whether these players make a roster or not due to the virus.

    It is certainly a fine line to walk. As presented by Schwartz, I would not want to be responsible for telling someone that may be on the bubble that they can’t take every opportunity to improve.

    To be fair….how about adding 6-time SB winning to Brady’s description…..

    Glad to see they are still working out, because I’m just waiting to hear what the excuses will be coming out of One Buc this year. We have heard about hurricanes, not having a indoor facility, too much distance traveling, having too many back to back road games, not getting calls during game and many more over the years and from different coaches. So i am just itiching to hear what Granpa Bucco Bruce has in store for us.

    Amen brother. Maybe the lesser Joe is still melting down because his bf Winston is gone. Who knows. But he looks like a clown with the way he describes Brady.

  6. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    You’re not a journalist when you describe Brady that way. Your bias is transparent. Get over your man crush on the former QB.
    A) Joe uses nicknames at times. The archives are there for you.
    B) Joe likes Brady a lot.
    C) Joe is very biased. It’s transparent as hell. Joe loves the Bucs and wants them to win. And winning now would be damn nice.
    D) Joe has no lingering mancrush

    For at least the TENTH time Joe
    He has a mansion in an Uber Rich subdivision which granted does have excellent facilities put there for the Athletes that own homes there.
