    Maybe I'm in the minority here. But, I'd rather stick with Brady than any other QB win or lose. When his career comes to an end, I'd like it to be in New England.

    Kraft screwed Bill by trading Garoppolo. Bill should leave AFTER the combine and take a year off to decompress!

    Stop, just stop. Brady wants to be appreciated??? I'm a Pats fan and believe me when I say he got a ton of appreciation from his fans. Brady wants to win pure and simple. He and his wife have more money than they'll spend in ten lifetimes so it's not about the money. It's about the rings, always has been. Give Brady the weapons he needs to wind another SB and he'll stay.

    Mark Boileau Thanks! Emmitt Smith as an Arizona Cardinal, Babe Ruth as a Boston Braves, Wayne Gretzky as a St. Louis Blue (or NY Ranger), Griffey as a Red, Tom Glavine as a Met, Karl Malone as a Laker, Hakeem as a Raptor, Earl Campbell as a Saint, Ty Cobb as a Philadelphia Athletic, Willie Mays as a Met, Willie McCovey as a Padre (and other places), Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe as Hartford Whalers, Franco Harris as a Seahawk, Stabler as an Oiler, Ronnie Lott as a Jet, Dorsett as a Bronco, among others come to mind as well. Some players stupidity, greed, and egos don’t allow them to bow out gracefully. And they almost always end up decades later wishing they had that 20/20 Hindsight that only comes with the wisdom of age.. Too bad more players (and coaches for that matter) didn’t think like a Ted Williams or an Ernie Banks who despite not winning titles will always be legends in places like Boston and Chicago for finishing where they started.

    thats so unfair the 49ers quarterback has a good offense around him i believe brady would be playing the 49ers if he had a good offense to work with in the 2019 season

    Whenever Max Kellerman talks about Tom Brady OR the Patriots...I'm NOT going to listen anymore...I pushed the "pause button" to this video to say this... Tom Brady did NOT win the national championship while in college, Bill Belichick had a LOSING career coaching record BEFORE the Patriots drafted Tom Brady... MAYBE Tom Brady can win elsewhere...MAYBE coach Belichick can find a decent replacement for Tom Brady in New England... the REAL PROVEN TRUTH IS... Tom Brady and Coach Belichick work GREAT together... peanut M&M's need BOTH the peanuts AND chocolate to be great... separately...peanuts and chocolate are great... but together, they're MAGIC!

  25. Antonio Tucker

    Antonio TuckerPřed 18 dny

    Tom Brady has won many championships he had a 10 win season this year I can't believe that the Patriots organization or someone in it wants to get rid of Tom Brady you have organizations that's over paying quarterbacks hundreds of millions of dollars and they can win 10 games or more and get to the playoffs every year if I was the New England Patriots I will keep my quarterback no matter but Bill belichick is one of the greatest coaches of all time the organization has to weigh in on the coaches feeling but I still would think hard if I was Robert Kraft if I was considering letting Tom Brady go that could be critical for the New England Patriots and start immediate rebuilding stage and make them one of the worst team in the league in my opinion they already do not have good receivers and a lot of players need to be replaced also that will throw them in the bottom of the dumps that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it 🤔



    Brady's not going anywhere

    Of course, Belichick is under contract and can’t coach or be a general manager anywhere else. He could go into broadcasting and take idiot Kellerman’s job. But don’t let the facts confuse you, Max. You never have before.
