Dear Pats Nation.
I can't deny where their smoke there's usually fire.
Anybody who saw my post earlier today on you two probably had a good idea that today was the day that I was going to start previewing the New England Patriots versus the Dallas Cowboys.
That's unfortunately gonna have to wait until tomorrow, because this whole Antonio Brown rumor that seems to be spreading like wildfire needs to be addressed tonight.
I think it's important that we take everything we hear with grain of salt, because right now it's all just rumors.
But there are a lot of people with blue check marks that are starting to chatter about a possible Antonio Brown New England Patriots re union.
Unfortunately, some of the other check marks are denying it, which tells us we actually have no idea what's happening.
But it's really fun to play this game, and it's really fun.
Toe wait and wonder and see what's going to happen.
As I stated yesterday, I am very supportive of the Patriots bringing back Antonio Brown.
Not because I think he's a good guy, not because I think he's a good role model for the kids.
I want the New England Patriots to bring back Antonio Brown because he's really, really good at catching the football.
And I know a certain quarterback who would probably love to play with a guy who's really, really good at catching the football.
And even though Patriot fans from all over the globe are all gonna have different opinions on the Antonio Brown situation, shouldn't we just support whatever Tom Brady wants? And if Tom Brady wants Antonio Brown, who the hell are we to stand in his way? Sincerely, your boy Ray, What's going on? Everybody And welcome to my little show here on DPMNE.
Don't go anywhere, because tonight I got a really busy show, but only a couple of subjects.
I'm going to spend a lot of time taking a deep dive into the Antonio Brown rumor.
Try to figure out fact from fiction, whether it's worth bringing a beat back to the Patriots, looking at opinions from all over and every angle, we're gonna go deep, and then I guess it's stock.
But if Antonio Brown is not returning to the Patriots, can the kill Harry be the guy to save the patriotsoffensive season? We'll explore all of that tonight.

So let's get it going here because here on DP and we like football.
We like football season and everything that goes with it, all right? And just a quick question are just a quick answer that I just saw the question come up in my, uh, and my SportsCastr streamers.
You guys should all know I know that I announce that me and kiss the rings or masterwork Tyson.
We're going to do a show together.
Things just haven't been lining up for us.
I'm gonna try to talk to him this week, see if we can set it up for next week.
It just seems like every Wednesday when we're supposed to do it, one of us has something come up.
We can't do it. Hopefully will be on next week.
I'll keep you guys stay tuned, but let's talk about Antonio Brown.
So what we really want to explore today is Antonio Brown and then Patriots reunion an actual possibility? Or is this just becoming a Twitter rumor that people are jumping on? Let's take this deep dive.
Let's look at the rumor.
Let's figure out the fact and fiction.
Okay, Are the patrons interested in Iranian? Are they not interested in the reunion? I don't know.
Now, for the first time ever in the history of DP and all the way back to when it was called dear Pats Nation all the way back to 2000 and 17 my first came on here and called myself Donny O'Donnell.
I am actually going to be looking at a opinion article from bar stool sports, and it's from a one of the best old G Patriot fans in the world, Jerry Thornton.
And he discussed Antonio Brown, and it really kind of lines up with stuff I wanted to talk about.
So you guys know how this works? I'll I took a little bit of the of the article out that we so we can talk about it.
Discuss it together.
Let's go from there.
So here's how Jerry Thornton starts his article.
You go like this goes as of Tuesday, the day this surprise, unusually well written and grammatically correct.
Semi colon apology to Mr Kraft on Antonio Brown's instagram.
I was puzzled by it as anyone.
It seemed really bizarre, even by the lofty standards of a guy who was the masked singer quit on two consecutive teams, froze his feet and calls himself Mr Big Chest.
Especially given that the Patriots withheld his $5 million bonus money and he took shots at Mr Kraft from patronizing the Asian hands Arts.
I don't know what it all meant exactly, but when something is that carefully worded, it doesn't mean nothing.
In the aftermath, it was pointed out that Brown's post was liked by several of his former teammates, including, but not limited to Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, James White, Stefan Gilmore, Brandon Boldin and Philip Door set.
There was a lot to take in, but here's what I got to talk about.
Those are pretty happy names on the Patriots.
That's You want to talk about locker room leadership? You want to talk about guys who, when you talk about the epitome of the Patriots, maybe minus Brandon Bolden, Tom Brady Edelman, White Gilmore, sort of the guys with the upper nonchalance of this Patriots team now all liking the post? I agree with what Thornton says.
Things don't just happen for a reason that was well worded.
That says, if somebody helped him construct it.
And you gotta wonder why now? I talked about it yesterday, and I think I might have been completely wrong.
I talked about how just Antonio Brown is just he just he flip flops all over the place.
Was he apologizing the craft just to put his name out to other NFL teams? Could see he's changed, apparently had a great meeting with the NFL.
He expects that everything's gonna be cleared and he'll be able to go this year because, really, we all know that The reason Antonio Brown is not on the team is because teams are worried about signing him, thinking that he is going to be traded for the year, that he's gonna be suspended for the rest of the season.
There's been rumors the Eagles are interested in him.
There's been rumors that the Steelers wouldn't mind a reunion with Antonio Brown, which I think would never absolutely happen.
But you've seen sort of all these sort of different teams pop up, and I think it was Florio who said, You know, if the Patriots don't sign him, somebody else will.
In case you've been living under a rock and you missed the apology.
Brown's tweet said this and her tweets slashes The grand posted this quote.
Mr Kraft, I apologize sincerely to you and your organization.
All I wanted to be was an asset to the organization.
Soy for the bad media and the drama.
Thank you sincerely, a B Now there's also a rumor floating around that Jonathan Kraft personally asked a B to make that apology.
Whether that's true or not, I have no idea.
If that were the case, it wouldn't surprise me.
Perhaps the Patriots are already laying the groundwork to bring Antonio Brown back, and this is one of the conditions.
Make the public apology.
Obviously, Antonio Brown in his camp.
They believe that there's a good chance you'll be back playing football this year, and if he is back playing football, he's gonna play for somebody.
So I asked, Why not the New England Patriots? Right? Here's what Mike Floreal just said about Antonio Brown in general, on his status in the NFL, he said there's some optimism on Brown's part that things went well enough last Thursday that he could be reinstated by the end of the season.
Pro football talks Mike for Florio said Wednesday on The Greg Hill Show.
The prevailing view had Bean.
The NFL was going to kick the can through the end of the season and let him play next year if they decide to suspend him, maybe give him credit for several are for time served because of practical matters.
He's been suspended without pay for nine weeks because no one will touch him while the league's invested in leagues investigation is pending.
But there is some optimism that he will have a chance to get back in end.
So if there's an opportunity, if there's a chance for the New England Patriots to bring back McKeel Harry, put everything aside.
Put aside the stain put aside the tax.
Put aside everything, just like I talked about in the top.
Antonio Brown is good at catching footballs, something that the other receivers may not be, you know, and the patrons.
You're dealing with injuries now, and I'm gonna talk about that a little bit later.
This offense took a huge hit when they played the Eagles on Sunday, and now Antonio Brown, even been assigned by the Patriots today, probably wouldn't be in the game on Sunday against the Cowboys.
But I think it's obvious to everybody that the Patriots offense is its bustling a little bit.
It's not working the way I think we all wish that it would work.
Okay, here and now, Thor, it makes a really good point here.
My call is that if the Patriots and Antonio Brown are clearing the public relations minefield for a frontal assault on the rest of the football season, I'm on board.
I've never been a fan of the guy.
I've always resented him for texting his other accuser with the veiled threats and pictures of her kids 1000 times more than I resent craft for releasing him and I will never trust.
He won't go off the rails yet again, with either some other off the field thing or just his default setting of *****ing about touches, making the scene every time he thinks he was open but didn't get the ball and just generally being a selfish dink.
But at this point, I'll take him for practical, purely football reasons.
Now I think all of us have to agree with that when it comes to football again.
Forget the off field stuff Forget, Forget everything that happens on the football field.
Antonio Brown could possibly be the best receiver in the NFL, and I know you can look at my cab and you can look at DeAndre Hopkins and, um, jeez, Tyree kill and those kind of guys, I get it.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Who I actually think is the best receiver in the league.
He's just on a being underutilized on an absolutely useless Cleveland team.
But we saw a little glimpse of what the Patriots conduce with Antonio Brown.
We saw Tom Brady getting him involved immediately in the game.
Tom Brady has been interacting with Antonio Brown since the day he's been released.
Now, if it was built ballot checks decision to release Antonio Brown than I could say, Well, look at this story.
You know Tom Brady's ****ed at Bella check because it was contracting the status and he's, you know, But no, we all know it wasn't built.
If I believe that, we don't know.
But I believe if Bill Belichick had his way, Antonio Brown would still be in New England Patriot.
The decision to cut him was Robert Kraft.
That's why Kraft made this statement.
It wasn't Ballot Shack.
That's why Kraft made the statement that him and Coach Belichick talked, and it was time to let go of Antonio Brown.
Brady knows what's going on with this offense.
You saw how ****ed he waas after the Eagles game.
You don't think Robert Kraft has heard about how great it would be.
Antonio Brown on the team, Those rumors floating now that Mohammed Sunu is gonna be out for a couple of weeks after he hurt his ankle, he was pretty much useless against Philly.
McKeel Harry has three career career touches.
Jacoby Meyers ran inside.
Cut instead of a fade route, Ben Watson makes a couple of catches.
Could be out with a concussion.
So that leaves what that leaves Tom Brady with Julian Edelman and for how long.
Antonio Brown makes the Patriots a better team.
Antonio Brown makes Tom Brady a better quarterback.
We saw it in Miami.
Here's authority finishes his part of the article, he says There's a long way to go in the process, and I'll be first to acknowledge it's not even close to being out of the rumor stage.
Not only has a credible report yet to be born yet.
It's barely in the anatomic sack, but it definitely feels like something is in motion here.
And if it starts down the birth c****, it'll be life changing.
Stay tuned again.
No matter which side of the fence you sit on, Antonio Brown returning the Patriots would be best for football.
I'm not saying bring him back next season.
I'm not saying make a long term investment into him.
I'm saying the Patriots are nine and one, have the best defense in the NFL, have one of the best special teams in the NFL in an offense.
That's kind of just doing enough.
But we just had a game.
Where are wide receiver through more touchdowns in our quarterback, and that's not insulting our quarterback.
That's insulting everything else around him.
Yes, Isaiah Win is going to make a difference.
I'm not denying that Isaiah wins gonna come and he's gonna protect Brady.
It's gonna open up the run game.
I get that, but he's not gonna catch the ball.
He's not gonna fix everything that's happened.
He's not gonna fix that.
The receivers are struggling to gain separation, even guys like Julian Edelman are struggling to get separation from the from the cornerbacks and from the defenders.
Antonio Brown would bring this offense to such an unbelievable level.
The Patriots might as well go into practice the day after they sign him and start getting their ring size for the Super Bowl ring.
It's that simple.
Guys love him or hate him.
Antonio Brown makes a New England Patriot better, so I don't know, like so this.
Also to come in late in the afternoon, all these rumors started happening.
I was kind of following it through.
I was like, Oh, my God, what do I do with this information? I sat on it. I kept reading things.
I read Floridians article.
I read another article.
I was like, ****, you know what? I have to make this about the show.
I have to make this topic on the show tonight.
I didn't want you.
I had six subjects to talk about, all regarding the Dallas Cowboys.
I was all ready to start, you know, let's stop focusing on the rumors stuff.
Let's start, folks, the Dallas Cowboys.
But then this came up and then right before I'm ready to come on about half an hour ago, maybe an hour ago.
So about an hour ago, so half an hour before I'm ready to come on here and start my show.
The Tommy Curren from NBC Sports article pops up that is denying all the Antonio Brown rumors, and he's stained basically undoubtably.
The Patriots do not want to bring Antonio Brown back, and that's why I said, Well, look at both sides of the rumors.
So here's a portion of current article he says two sources with knowledge of the Patriots thinking scoffed at the idea Antonio Brown would rejoin the Patriots this season.
When one sorts was asked if there was a chance the wideout, who was with the Patriots for less than two weeks in September, might have a chance at re joining the team.
This was the two word response. Quote.
What changed? End quote.
I mentioned Brown social media apology to owner Robert Kraft earlier in the week and this meeting last week with the NFL as possibly changing the equation.
I was told that it does not again, just like we got to take everything about Antonio Brown coming back to the patrons with the grain assault.
We have to take everything that retractors air saying with a grain of salt.
Because Tommy Curren also said that the Patriots weren't interested in bringing Antonio Brown in the first time They signed Antonio Brown after it was cut with the Raiders.
And look, I know that Robert Kraft, and even built about check was upset because they didn't know about the lawsuit and Bubba Bubba Block.
But again, at which point to the Patriots get to where it's like, You know what we're now on? Week 12 of the season where nine and one, we have a chance to host the ASD championship game.
We have a chance at the playoffs.
We have a chance of going to our fourth straight Super Bowl in time.
R A F C rivals the Buffalo Bills.
We have a chance of winning our seventh Super Bowl and shutting up the pitch Berg, Steeler fans.
And if we are all Patriots, I gotta think that at least Bill Belichick is considering it.
But according to current, it's not hurt feelings.
It's not Robert Kraft being upset, and I talked about this yesterday.
It was just my opinion, but now sources air kind of confirming it.
It's basically Antonio Brown stupidity.
Here's our current finishes.
Article AT issue AREn't HURT feelings that Brown couldn't fix with a few keystrokes.
It's the weariness of something else cropping up down the road.
When the Patriots signed Brown, there was no advance notice from Brown's agent, Drew Drew Rosenhaus.
The Brown was on the cusp of being slapped with a lawsuit by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, even though the legal wrangling between Brown and Taylor's attorney had been going on for months.
And while it was substantially reported that Rosenhaus couldn't break confidentiality agreement, Browne supposedly had in place the fact that the Patriots entered into the Brown experience.
Not knowing at all that that bombshell was waiting to explode makes them unwilling to go down the same road again.
If current is right and I'm right, then Antonio Brown will never be a New England patriot.
But I don't think that that was the right that that would be the right move for the Patriots.
The right move for the Patriots is doing what's best for the team and the best thing to two for the team is give Tom Brady one of the best receivers in the NFL, and I'm not just gonna keep saying it over and over again and keep repeating myself.
But I agree, and I talked about it at length yesterday.
Antonio's Brown Antonio Brown's inability to think with his head and not do stupid things could be the factor that keeps him off the Patriots.
And it's too bad.
But if we didn't have any more motivation for Antonio Brown to be a Patriot, listen to this article that came up by Josh Apple, er or Alper from pro football talk.
It goes, Here's here's basically the meat of it all.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wasn't happy with the way the offense performed in last Sunday's win over the Eagles on their on field work to improve ahead of this Sunday's game against the Caliph Dallas Cowboys began without a couple of Brady's targets.
Wide receiver filled door set caught the Onley Patriots touchdown for the eagle in the Eagles game, and it turned out to be his final play of the date or set, suffered a concussion and remains out of practice and in the concussion protocol for the time being door sets.
Fellow wideout Mohammed Sunu sat out with an ankle issue.
Seenu played through last Sunday's win, but he wasn't particularly effective as he finished the day with two catches for four yards.
That's what the Patriots are dealing with right now.
The Patriots are dealing with a banged up offense.
They're dealing with Julian elements back on the injury report.
So basically, on Sunday, Tom Brady could be going into the game with Julian Edelman and two rookies, one being an undrafted free agent and one who just made his NFL debut last week.
Is that enough? Can Nick Eel Harry become this superstar that the Patriots need right now? Can he become a Malcolm Mitchell of 2016? We have no idea, has made three catches.
He's played one game.
Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports believes that the Kill Harry could be the absolute difference maker for the Patriots this year.
So if the Patriots were going to try to live and die without Antonio Brown, which at this point is probably more likely than not, here's what he had to say.
He's caught three career NFL passes he displayed in one game almost no outside of hardcore New England Patriots fan Pac 12 followers and or NFL draft tanks has ever heard of him.
Yet it's fair to wonder if Nick Eel Harry could be the X factor that determines who wins the Super Bowl.
And again I turn that back down to the Malcolm Mitchell thing.
We all remember how important Malcolm Mitchell s don't forget the second half of the 28 to 3 come back against Atlanta Falcons.
Mitchell was a key contributor to that game, and he had a great playoffs and he really came in at the end of the year.
And I think a lot of people are hoping that that's when the keel Harry does Now.
I've gone on record a couple of times.
Same that I think we need to limit our expectations on McKeel Harry.
I don't think he's gonna have this big explosive year that we think he's gonna have.
I think that he's mistake games.
I think he's gonna have limited opportunities.
Even with all these injuries.
He may be asked to do more than the Patriots wanted him originally, but I don't think it's going to amount to what it would have been if he doesn't get hurt in the preseason and because of that, I just can't see him being this X factor to help this offense.
I wish you would.
I think his future is bright.
I think he's gonna be a top 10 receiver in the NFL one day.
I think he's gonna be the Patriots next big thing.
He's gonna be the next Edelman of the team, and I know he plays a different position and he's taller and stronger.
But I mean, by name brand recognition, go to for his quarterback.
It just might not be Tom Brady, who's throwing to him for the rest of his career.
It might not be Tom Brady who makes this kid look like a superstar, but here's what wets will have to say a little bit more, he said.
There's a reason Brady is frustrated right now with the offense.
As Dallas arrives Sunday for a highly anticipated matchup, concerns include offensive line play and the running attack.
The return of the return from injury of offensive tackle Isaiah Win should help both, But maybe most important is the lack of an outside threat at wide receiver that wouldn't just give Brady something to throw, too.
But take some defensive attention from the other team's best receivers, Julian Adelman.
The Patriots have been desperately seeking receiving help all season to solve the glaring questions all along.
There has been Harry just waiting to get healthy.
Belichick took him in the first round with the 32nd overall pick last spring, but he missed the Pats 1st 9 games with an ankle injury.
The six foot 4 213 pounder was a start Arizona State, where he caught 22 touchdown passes over three seasons and delivered over 1000 yards in each of his final two years.
He's a physical, big bodied wideout who's excelled at catching balls and traffic on back shoulder throws and over smaller defensive backs.
He's also a notable run blocker.
All right, so look, we've all we know, the intangibles that McKeel Harry has.
We also don't know, though, if he's going to be able to translate that to the NFL after playing 1234 games, you know, becoming a good professional player takes more snaps, more reps, more repetition.
Being in game situations.
Learning from mistakes.
The Patriots are now at the point of the season where they can't afford to have a rookie going to rookie.
You know, mistakes and going through growing pains.
This is when they need people who can come in and perform.
Tom Brady showed absolute trust and Mohammed Sunu immediately.
He talked about how him and so new.
It was bawling on the practice field.
And, yeah, Brady came out and said he didn't want to put unreasonable expectations on the keel.
Harry, it's not fair for him to do that. Absolutely.
And you know what? I actually kind of believe Brady when he says that.
That's sort of the Patriots way managed expectations.
Speak for yourself.
He didn't want to speak for Harry and put those expectations through the roof.
But I think we need to be a little bit realistic here, guys.
I'm not liking to kill Harry Hater.
I love the killer.
Go watch all my videos from this summer, you know, and from the spring you guys know you guys know that I'm a big nickel Harry fan.
You know, I think he's gonna be the future of this team.
And I think if he doesn't get hurt, in the preseason.
This kid is bawling now, and he's one of Tom Brady's best receivers.
Unfortunately, things didn't work out the way he wanted it.
The Patriots wanted or we wanted it.
And I just I don't know.
I just can't see it.
And I hope I'm wrong to neck Nicoson.
Rae, I hope you're wrong.
I hope I'm wrong.
I would love to sit here after the Patriots win Super Bowl 54.
And you guys tell me, Ray, look, it was all because of Nick Kill Harry man, and I'll take that on the chin.
Are you kidding me? Of course I will.
And I'm not gonna run from these comments If I'm wrong, I'm not going to run because I'm not gonna I'm not gonna not bring it up if I'm right, so that's the way it is.
But here's the good news.
You know, let me read you the rest of little thing because he kind of brings a good news.
The Patriots are in all or nothing.
Franchise, Super Bowl or bust.
Harry doesn't have to develop into a big time player and saw the weakness that's been present all season.
for them to win it.
It's a lot to ask for a rookie, and Brady and Co.
Tend to find ways to get it done.
You know what, Let me say Amen to that.
I talked about this after the Ravens game I talked to about this after the Eagles game.
Football for the New England Patriots doesn't start until after Thanksgiving, and the Patriots have put themselves in such a way.
Imagine being nine and one and still having the opportunity to grow and improve because great teams beat controversy.
Great teams win games that maybe they shouldn't win.
Great teams do things that perhaps people weren't expecting.
And that's exactly what the New England Patriots are doing.
And they're going to get better.
So news gonna come back healthy.
New kill Harry will get his opportunities with Tom Brady.
Ben Watson will get a little bit more familiar.
A little bit more game legs underneath him.
Maybe Matt Lacoste gets more involved.
Maybe Isaiah win opens up the run game just a little bit.
This Patriots offense doesn't need an overhaul.
It needs a tweaking.
It needs a tune up 10% to 15% more efficiency.
Well, that completely changes this season.
For the Patriots, it completely changes the narrative around the Patriotsoffense.
That's all it's gonna take, guys.
Just a little tweak and things get 1000 times better because his Patriots defense is good enough.
24 points will win you a game for the Patriots.
All right, guys, this is now the time, the opportunity when I give my lovely SportsCastr audience who's always loyal to me and comes in live an opportunity to come in and ask a question.
If you guys have a question, now is the time to do it.
If you don't have a question, then I will call it a day and Rhino has one regarding a bee.
Can we sign him to the minimum and then just give him the money he is owed? So, technically, Antonio Brown is a free agent.
Antonio Brown was released by the Patriots.
The Patriots will probably have to pay him a CZ money at some other point.
This, you know, probably in the off season, when Antonio Brown sues him.
It's still against the books on the cap.
The pages could bring him in for the veterans minimum. Absolutely.
Yeah, it's not like they're gonna have to bring him in like another 14 million or anything like that are nine million, whatever.
They were gonna pay him.
So yeah, absolutely.
What I would hear, either. Absolutely.
He wants to play football, man.
He's not doing what he's doing.
If he doesn't want to go back and play for the New England Patriots, Antonio Brown has made it clear Antonio Brown doesn't want to play football for just anybody.
Antonio Brown wants to play for the Patriots.
Why does he apologize to Mr Kraft? Why does he keep posting pics? You could apologize to the Raiders.
You can apologize to the Browns.
He could make a plea for other teams around the league.
Now Antonio Brown wants to play football with Tom Brady.
He's probably just like Odell Beckham Jr.
Right? Oh, Beckum said.
It's always been his dream to play with Tom Brady.
I think Antonio Brown knows his best opportunity for a Super Bowl is to play with Tom Brady.
You think he's gonna get his touches in Kansas City? They've got a couple.
He could win a Super Bowl and came to City eventually.
But he knows he's not gonna get us touches.
He knows in New England.
Number one, he'll be the man, and he's gonna be playing with the goat coached by the goat.
Trust me, if Antonio Brown's returning to football, if the Patriots want him, they'll have them before anybody else.
When Brady threw the ball to Harry on third down after he avoided the sack.
Is that to start to something special? I believe I seen something.
Yeah, I talked about it.
I don't know if it's the start of something special, but it's really a big key piece.
The building, Um, a relationship with Tom Brady and building trust with Brady.
Brady can now see that he can trust me.
Kill Harry in those situations.
He can use him as an outlet.
Tom Brady always goes to his outlets. First.
Julian Edelman is always the first look.
Then it's probably Mohammed Sunu, and then it's probably Ben Watson, and then it's now gonna be, You know, then it's probably no.
So it's probably Julian Edelman, Mohammed Sunu, Philip Door said Ben Watson and then the keel.
Harry I know you don't want to hear that.
I know you don't want to think he's the fifth look on the route on a on a bailout option.
You know, it's just like ah thing Last season, I think I heard you know, uh, Tom, I think Chris, Colin, we're saying no.
Is Tony Romo's thing? You know, Tom Brady told him Rob Gronkowski was the target on every single passing play.
That was always Brady's first option.
And then he looked elsewhere.
I think what he's gonna do it, Tom Brady has built that chemistry.
If Brady's back next year, like I think a lot of us believe he will be, that's when you'll really see it coming to fruition.
We could see it as we get deeper into the playoffs, but it's not gonna be a a big, big leap.
We're not gonna see these huge leaps in transition or are an improvement in transactions and transgressions.
As we go forward.
It's really going to come down to just time and football.
So, yeah, do you see Brady going anywhere else? No.
How could he? If Tom Brady left New England? I think it would be worse than Joe Montana.
You know, playing for Kansas City.
It be worse than than Peyton Manning.
We're playing for the Broncos, and I know we want to Super Bowl the Broncos.
But Tom Brady and the Patriots are so unanimous with each other, I believe I'd really believe if he left the team this year and went and signed somewhere else.
Especially, You know, we found out the Patriots were trying to bring him back, but if he decided he wanted to take one last shot and go somewhere else, maybe playing California something like that.
I think it tarnishes.
Is his legacy a little bit? Not a whole lot, but Tom Brady playing in a different jersey.
It just doesn't make sense in my head.
Tom Brady coming at Gillette Stadium to play the Patriots with another team doesn't make sense in my head.
And believe me, if that's the case, I'll be cheering for Kyle Van Noy to sack his ass.
Tower hits him high, you know.
Here's the Here's the reality, guys.
I love Tom Brady.
We all love Tom Brady.
Tom Brady is a national treasure, but I'm a Patriots fan before my Tom Brady fan.
I'm a Patriots fan before my Dante Hightower fan.
I'm a Patriots fan before any player on the team.
Now I'm seeing questions would be burners.
I don't think any Patriots fan would would burn his jersey, but if number 12 goes and placed somewhere else the hell with him.
Have fun wherever you go, Brady.
But that's not the case right now, so I'm not gonna get myself all upset about a hypothetical situation.
No, I don't think I just can't see it happen.
Tom Brady is a page of the patriot for life.
Maybe those are words I'm gonna eat one day.
Maybe those are words.
I'm gonna turn around next season and say I can't believe he's in l.
A charger, but I don't think it will be.
And without being said, these questions are getting crazy now.
