Insight into why Tom Brady left the New England Patriots.
Theories abound flying in from all directions. It’s so unfathomable, so unthinkable (at least for New England Patriots fans), and so absolutely incomprehensible that it seems to have scrambled the brains of even the most locked-in and astute observers of the Boston sports scene. Until now.
I had postulated previously that it was because Tom was miffed at the treatment of his personal trainer by the Patriots management. He was ticked at the pitiful offensive weapons he was given last season. His supporting cast on offense was offensive.
Brady was flamed out that the offer given to him this offseason (if there was one) was insulting after all those years of willingly accepting contracts worth far less than he deserved.
Not only that, but he also did this while watching lesser quarterbacks reel in megabucks after having done almost nothing or at least far, far less than he.
None of them could match his success. Not even close, and he did that, for the sake of the team.
And, Brady was insulted and maybe hurt that he wasn’t given the respect and affection by his superiors that he so richly deserved. All of these reasons pass muster as being a reason or the reason why he felt he had to leave the site of such achieved glory and all the Super Bowl-winning flags at Gillette Stadium.
I also thought it maybe was because of the surliness of his sourpuss coach or the fawning accolades of the owner who nonetheless still wouldn’t cough up the cash just this once.
Could it maybe be this simple?
Indeed, there may be hundreds of reasons why Tom Brady left us. Divorced us after a blissful 20 years of marriage (well, maybe 18 anyway).
But what if it were as simple as this: TB12 to TB! That has to be it. It’s all in the initials. So there it is. TB12 fits Tampa Bay like Hershey’s chocolates fit Hershey, Pennsylvania. That’s it, the real reason. TB12 fits better in TB than it does in NE.
I think I’ve figured it out. It’s all about the initials.
