An excerpt from the book:
Tom Brady has accomplished a lot in 15 seasons in the National Football League. He was the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots and took over for the legendary Drew Bledsoe. He was the Most Valuable Player in the NFL for multiple seasons, is one of three quarterbacks in history with four Super Bowl championship victories, and had several appearances in the league’s annual Pro Bowl game. Let us also throw in some major motion picture appearances, a few hit television shows like Saturday Night Live and Family Guy, and being considered by many as one of the faces of today’s NFL.
With all of the positives in the past 15 years, there has been recent news and controversies surrounding Brady and the Patriots organization which have led some to question the integrity of Brady’s legacy.
The Deflate-Gate controversy questions whether Brady had an unfair advantage throwing with under-inflated footballs during New England’s 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts in the 2015 AFC Championship game. Such controversy puts to question how the game would have played out differently otherwise and possibly changed the outcome of Super Bowl XLIX where New England defeated the Seattle Seahawks, the defending champions from the previous season, 28-24. However, others suggest that Brady’s numbers would not have made a difference in the grand scheme of events since the Colts only scored seven points in a game where the Patriots had three touchdowns from their running back LeGarrette Blount.
Then there was the Patriots’ Spygate scandal that accused head coach Bill Belichick of coordinating videotaping efforts of hand signals used by opposing defenses. The signals were later on passed to Brady who was then able to make an audible – changing the play on the field – based on what he saw in the defensive set up and signals during the game. Still, the league has not taken away any of the five Vince Lombardi trophies the organization has won since 2001, nor have they banned anyone from the game. This is a similar case to that of Pete Rose, who bet on baseball while acting as manager of the Cincinnati Reds from 1984 to 1989.
