NFL writer Gary Myers made a mistake at the very same moment he decided to write about Tom Brady’s “deteriorated relationship” with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. In his story, Myers wrote that this problem is one of the reasons TB12 had to go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady was the first to respond to the report, asking Myers and others like him to stop the nonsense. The star quarterback denied the report, and Myers decided to double down.
Tom E. Curran had his response to Myers’ report. According to him, Myers crossed the red line.
“It’s an overstatement; (Myers) sexed it up a bit,” Curran said Tuesday during an appearance on WEEI’s “Dale & Keefe” show. “Basically, Gary is walking into a crash site three or four months after everybody is cleaned up, documented and filed everything and holding something up saying, ‘Look what I found!’ And it wasn’t a deteriorating relationship in my estimation that caused Brady to leave. Nor was it a deteriorating relationship where he didn’t like Josh. It’s just — and we’ve gone over this and over this — they didn’t want him to stick around and they did all the things that are obvious when you want an employee to pretty much move on unless he’s gonna do everything by your rules.”
Gary Myers wrote the report at the wrong time
Is this even relevant now? Brady signed with a different team. McDaniels will coach a new quarterback. He will work with a completely different offense. Was this report really necessary? Moreover, it may be completely wrong. Brady had words of praise for his coaches and the organization. McDaniels shared a lengthy statement following Brady’s decision to go to Tampa. Myers’ report doesn’t make any sense. We are waiting for Max Kellerman. He’s been quiet lately. Maybe he will have something to say about this.
Brady will probably finish his career as a Buccaneer. He will turn 43 in August, and he signed a two-year deal with the Bucs. The Patriots will have second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham as starter in September. Bill Belichick has high expectations from his young quarterback. Did he make the right move this offseason?
