    The Brady 6

    Another ESPN Documentary, and one I felt was one of their weakest. Just didn't think the subject was the strongest.

    I definitely think I could have done without them dwelling on the failures of the six QBs taken ahead of him.

    It shows that Mel and the boys simply are talking heads who watch more tape than you and me.

    I saw a clip of Brady crying so I decided to record it for later. Taking a QB is such a gamble and the Pats always viewed him as an expendable pick. Obviously they hit the lottery.

    The exact reason I recorded it. I felt like that was the only powerful moment of the entire thing.

    What interested me most was the fact that they kept him as the 4TH qb his rookie year and, as Coach Bill said, they wasted a roster spot simply because they were afraid to lose him.

    It showed to me that he's close to his family and he has never forgotten the support they showed him.

    I liked it. I like the 'they messed up', 'where are they now" documentaries. Giovanni Camazzi has 5 goats.


    I also thought it was pretty cool to see Tee Martin in his UK blues being interviewed.

    I enjoyed it though. It intrigues me that so much is put into the draft and people like Brady slip through and it makes you wonder how that happens.

    Watching Chris Palmer and Brian Billick talk about Spergon Wynn was hilarious.

    I like what Brady said about his time at UM. He had to fight every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday just to have a shot at playing on Saturday. He brought that same mentality to the pros. I remember Giovanni being hyped before the draft and now he's a Yoga farmer with no TV and five goats. The draft footage is priceless, he looks like a fan that won a spot for a tryout.

    Brady looked like he did his 40 in slow motion. I started laughing when I saw him running. Can you imagine how he would have been ripped if NFL TV was around shooting the entire combine back then?

    Great show that my son and I watched together. Very inspirational for him. Message.........don't ever listen to an "expert" that talks about what you can't do. Like coach Mariuccci said, "we didn't open him up and look at his heart". I am a big Brady fan. Cool as the other side of the pillow.

    They probably wouldn't have bothered to talk about him.

    40 times are one of the most overrated stats in football. Julio Jones ran a 4.39 and AJ Green ran a 4.50. Yet, I don't ever recall watching them over the past few seasons and thinking that Julio Jones looked faster on the football field. He may have ran better at the combine, but on the field, AJ Green plays faster than Julio Jones.

    Brady may go down as one of the GOAT but too much harping on this. His crying and getting all emotional over the issue was just way too much IMO. Although I understand he probably got emotional because he immediately felt all the love his family was giving him at that time, the fact remains, he was still drafted and it wasn't like he was supposed to have been a first or second rounder anyway. I mean if you want to be in a position to dwell and get all emotional go bag groceries and play on the indoor circuit for a while like Kurt Warner. Then you may have some real beef.

    I couldn't watch it because it goes against my moral code as a Jets fan. I hate Tom Brady... He's too dang good.

    So basically it isn't okay for a guy who has goals and expectations to get emotional about the day he thought he failed?


    I am not a Brady fan either but I can understand the feelings he had about that day. I got a chuckle out of it but I ain't mad at him for getting emotional about that day.

    Never said I was mad or thought it was horrible, just way overplayed IMO. I like Brady and think he is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. I just thought it was funny thats all. I mean he did get drafted so that meant he went into training camp fighting for a job just like the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth rounders did. Even if you go first round it still don't guarantee you anything, you still have to earn it. So even though he was highly upset, I just think it was way too much emotion, especially considering everything he has accomplished. He fell into a perfect scenario IMO, that system is tailor made for him. Take him away from that organization and we may have never even knew who Tom Brady the NFL quarterback was.

    Like I said, you don't see Kurt Warner streaming tears down his cheeks.
