Tom Brady has done nothing but be a fierce competitor, a fiery leader, and a winner for the New England Patriots. The future hall of famer has taken New England from a losing organization to a perennial contender, a 3 time champion, and four time AFC Champion. He has done so after being considered a nobody, replacing longtime Patriots favorite Drew Bledsoe to win Super Bowl XXXVI against heavy favorites the St. Louis Rams. He has been known as the quarterback to always have a chance in the fourth quarter of big games. He has complied a playoff record of 14-3.
The two time Super Bowl MVP won Super Bowls without great receivers around him, or at least Deion Branch wasn't the caliber of Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Now all he asks for is that the Patriots keep the talent he has like Randy Moss so that they can return to the 2007 record setting 50 touchdown form. However, Brady should be mad that the team doesn't try to make his job easier when he has put so much forward to becoming one of the most successful quarterbacks in league history.
Brady doesn't express his anger with the team because he wants to set a good example for the young players and because he sincerely respects Coach Bill Bellick. Brady is also upset that the younger players don't give much respect to Bill Bellick and do not work had in practice. Right now the media tries to make Brady appear super upset, but he isn't, at least not publicly. He is upset that the Patriots haven't shown their greatest quarterback a little bit of faith and won't give him any job security, and that is completely understandable. He doesn't want to get injured and have nowhere to go, he wants to have the organization he has done so much for show him just a little love. Tom Brady should not be thrown out like an old diaper, like other veteran Patriots have been like Mike Vrabel who was tossed in as a gift to the Kansas Chiefs with Matt Cassel, and Junior Seau who was given one year contracts four times despite what he meant to the team. Tom Brady doesn't merely want to receive the franchise tag, he wants to be a Patriot, but one for many years to come. It is insulting not to even offer a multi-year deal to someone who has done so much for the Patriots and who still can.
