“This is New England. This is a tough and nasty sports environment. Not everyone was rooting for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers to win last Sunday to gain a chance for another Super Bowl ring.”
That’s how a local sports maven described his view of the way many New England sports fans tend to think.
That being said, I believe the Leader Herald speaks for millions of Patriots sports fans who rooted for Brady the GOAT all the way Sunday.
All of us rooting for Brady agreed – the victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers was about as sweet as victories can be.
Many of us shared the same feeling about the victory.
Why wasn’t this a Patriots victory with Brady directing the plays?
How did the geniuses in Foxboro let Brady get away?
That’s a question they should be asking themselves as Brady prepares for the Super Bowl and Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes should bury the Buccaneers and Brady with them…but he won’t.
Because playing head to head with Brady in the twilight of Brady’s career pits a youngin’ versus a wisened, still ambitious, and very dangerous old-timer with an arm that shoots the football like a rifle and a head for football like a computer.
Our money here is not on the spread.
It is full out on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Eat your hearts out, Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick. The GOAT is destined for victory.
