The Tom Brady saga continues to move along at a rapid pace. Wednesday is the day that Tom Brady and his lawyers meet with league commissioner Roger Goodell and begin the so called deflate gate issue. The next day Thursday is the first pre season game for the Pats. Thursday the Patriots begin their quest for Super Bowl number five. It’s also the first time the Pats willl be without the services of Tom Brady at the helm
But it’s adversities such as these that makes the Patriots so good. No matter what the issue is weather an injury to a key player or a big play the Pats learn to overcome their obstacles. This is what separates the Patriots from the rest of the league. Their motto Do Your Job is well known all overr New England. The rule applies to everyone who wears a Patriot uniform even Tom Brady.Patriot head coach seems to find a way to win. If its an injury issue he finds players off the street to come in and contribute.
Such was the case after the “07 season. After that successful season head coach Bill Belichick was accused ofspying on opposing teams. This case was known as the infamous Spy Gate issue. Belichick was forced to pay a heavy fine. But these accusations don’t sop the Pats from winning in fifteen years under Brady they’ve dominated the AFC East The Patriots are one of the best coached and well focused teams in all of sports
In Thursday’s game against Green Bay the Pats will start second year man Jimmy Garoppolo against the Packers. Garoppolo was the teams second round pick of a year ago. Garoppolo saw limited action last year but when he did play he fared fairly well. With Brady tied up in court Garoppolo will get the bulk of the snaps. Veteran journeyman Matt Flynn was signed in the off season. Flynn should see plenty of action to. By playing Garoppolo this will make him gain his confidence and get the offense more comfortable with him. Its cases like this that makes the Patriots so well prepared.
The deflate gate issue could work in in the Patriots favor. With all the negative press the team has received since the AFC title game back in January deflate gate is a perfect example of how the Patriots react in overcoming distractions. Eventually the Brady case will be resolved. When it does Brady will have this problem behind him and ready to move on. When the time does come for Brady to focus on football again time will tell if Super Bowl number five is reach.
