The world is in a prelude to the Zombie apocolypse and still people are in the New England Patriots thread talking about cheating.

lol 

The Zombies might claim all of our lives, but they will never claim our memories.

Also, Brady may be hoping that the CBA passes at the deadline and the Patriots will then increase their offer.  I wonder if he will be correct on either count?

When I have shuffled off this mortal coil, verily, my spirit shall return, anon, to torment ye Patriot fans.

 

I can't really be tormented. I've seen more than enough home team success to last for the next 50 years. Being one of those "back in the good old days" types might take some getting used to though.

Titans officially off the table with the Tannehill signing.

 

 

 

I thought they were officially off the table when Giselle asked "WHAT is Tennessee?. . . instead of WHERE" 🤣

Damn might as well cross Tampa Bay off the potential destination list now.

I wonder if there’s even a market for Brady at this point.   This could be a sad ending

It appears that Brady's bluff has been called.  Brady now has two options: sign for big bucks and fail with the Bucs, or swallow his pride and take a one-year deal at less than market value to stay with New England.  I honestly don't think Belichick cares which route Brady takes, since Belichick has been low-key trying to get rid of Brady for a few years now.

  • NBC Sports' Chris Simms reports free agent Tom Brady is down to the Patriots and Buccaneers.

    Simms also reports Brady's top choice was the 49ers, but they've dropped out of the Brady sweepstakes and are focusing on Jimmy Garoppolo as their franchise quarterback. With Ryan Tannehill securing a long-term deal with the Titans, Brady's options are dwindling. This report suggests Brady will be choosing between staying home on an average deal or moving down to Florida on a more lucrative deal to pair up with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Simms ultimately predicts Brady staying with the Patriots, but this isn't settled yet. In fact, we can't even rule out a wild card team making a last-second push. Time is ticking for Brady to find what's best for his last couple of NFL seasons.

The best ending for his legacy is to finish with the Pats  but the best ending for his ego is to finish the last 2-3 years he has on his terms. He is learning quickly that no front office cares too much about the terms of a 42yr old QB with rapidly declining athletic skills 😂

I think Belicheck being indifferent is the crux of everything. Hoodie has always had a regimented process of paying players and giving contracts based on how he values them in context of building the team. This process of player and contract valuations has truly been the key to NE's dominance. There is little history that Hoodie ever "overpaid" for for players.🤨

Oh cruel cruel world!

I used to think Brady leaving, and both the player and the Patriots failing without the other, was my best possible scenario.

But what if Brady stayed with the Patriots and they both failed together?

Now take that scenario, but add in the fact that Brady tarted around with other teams but then had to come crawling back?

But, last and best, 1) Brady stays with the Pats after being humiliated by BB in the contract staredown, but then 2) the punishment from Spygate VIII falls on all their heads like a ton of bricks, and finally 3) Pats finish first in the AFC Least again (duh) but are blown out in the wildcard round again.  Then we rinse and repeat this "will-he-won't-he" saga again with Brady prior to 2021!!!

bonus points for use of the phrase “tarted around”

Tom should choose Tampa and be thankful that he’d actually have a coach that covets him for once and more importantly, weapons to throw to.

Evans, Godwin, OJ, Brate, hell even Scott Miller has some potential, and if I’m Tampa I also sign Chris Thompson to give Brady his new James White.

Tampa could then spend a good amount of the draft on OL and Defense. People seem to forget Tampa was 7-9 last year with Jameis throwing 30 INTs, and the kicker missing quite a few kicks, definitely costing Tampa the game against the Giants.

More importantly Tampa has an emerging top defense coached by Bowles.

It will be interesting to see how many of those guys they resign.

The offense just didnt help them out at all.

What's so special about Indy?

 

Casual football fan? Craft and NE hate Irsay and the Colts. So Brady could stick it to them by signing with the Colts
