Patriots’ Drama: A Boston Teed Off Party
Save the Drama for Yo Momma.
FTS watches the Sunday morning NFL pre-game shows to catch up on the latest intrigue from the league. Plus, we’re usually too hungover from Saturday to get out of bed. We need to watch something. Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Jason LaConfora of CBSSportsline.com and FTS’s Richie “Dick” Burns are reporting Patriots QB Tom Brady-Bundchen is furious at team officials and the coaching staff. Why? It comes down to a really handsome second-round draft pick, Jimmy Garoppolo.
The end of the Bill Belichick/Brady era in New England is coming sooner than expected, at least according to team sources. Rumors of a separation finally taking place are gaining traction league-wide. The head coach and quarterback have been the most successful duo in the NFL. But, have they been together too long?
End of the Line
Brady has lost his ‘cool’ many times this season on the sidelines. In the offseason, he accepted another team-friendly deal, provided that the extra cash would replenish the roster. The Patriots have issues on the offensive line, outside receiver, and at tight end that haven’t been addressed. Rob Gronkowski, is less than a year removed from his latest surgeries. Julian Edelman has been the only regular contributor and the running game is pathetic.
Belichick and owner Bob Kraft must add younger and less injury-prone talent to the team as soon as possible. Or else their ‘decade of dynasty’ will be nothing more than a distant memory. Read the full story at Bleacher Report.
