So I was scrolling around on the internet today, as millennials do, and I came across a few interesting clips from Colin Cowherd's new show. And just to get this out of the way, can we all agree that Colin Cowherd has gotten exponentially more tolerable since moving away from ESPN? Like I hated this man on Sportsnation and now I actually like what he has to say. Goes to show that ESPN has really gotten that bad.
Now in a totally normal segue, let me talk about one of the dumbest things I've heard Cowherd say. I believe this story came from yesterday's show, but, nonetheless, Colin Cowherd has hypothesized that the era of seeing Tom Brady in a Patriots jersey is coming to an end sooner than we thought (um what now?). Yes he said that. He believes that Jimmy Garoppolo is to Tom Brady as Andrew Luck was to Peyton Manning. Cowherd thinks the Patriots are soon going to be over the man that could run for governor in each state in the New England region simultaneously and win the position in each of them.
Now in saying this, Cowherd ascertained that Brady would then get to take a free agent tour, find a 2 year 20 million dollar deal from the team of his choosing (i.e. one with a good O-line and defense) and go win a Super Bowl, and that the Patriots fan base should be just fine and dandy with that. He mentioned that Belichick shows loyalty to no one, as evidenced by his revolving door of running backs and fringe players who get cut after showing up to Tuesday film two minutes late.
But here's the thing: do we really think Belichick and Brady aren't loyal to each other? They've won three, count em three, Super Bowls together and have essentially dominated the entire league for 15 years, while also fighting off the reign of terror from Adolf Gooddell. Why on Earth would Bill just turn around and say "Sorry Tom, we're going with the Eastern Illinois guy. Thanks for nothing, go kick rocks."?
To me, there's no chance this happens. They will let TB12 hang around 1 Patriot Way until the wheels fall off. Hell, the Patriots could win a Super Bowl THIS YEAR (just like how we start every year). Why would Tom Brady suddenly not be welcome? Peyton had what seemed to be a career ending neck injury and miraculously recovered by some act of God to win a Super Bowl. Tom got suspended for sort of not really nobody knows, something about footballs or what not? IDK it barely got any coverage so nobody really heard about it, right ESPN?
All I'm saying is remember what happened when a reporter asked if Garoppolo could come out and sling it weeks one through four, could he be the new QB1?
This is Tom's team until he chooses otherwise. Kick rocks Cowherd. (but seriously love the show now that it's not ESPN)
