Tom Brady trainer Alex Guerrero treated QB at midnight after Week 15 road win
Tom Brady has made it clear that his body coach Alex Guerrero is one of the most important people in the five-time Super Bowl MVP’s life, and we got a closer look at that relationship in Brady’s new documentary series.
The fifth and final installment of “Tom vs. Time” was released on Sunday, and Guerrero was a big theme. At one point, Brady revealed that he immediately went to see Guerrero for treatment when the Patriots arrived home following their dramatic road win over the Steelers in Week 15.
“I’m tired — emotionally, a little tired,” Brady said after the win. “Got back at midnight and went and saw Alex. Getting treatment at midnight, you know, coming home from the game and just try to stay on top of my body. It’s what it takes this time of year.”
Some audio clips were played later in the documentary of sportscasters alluding to the reports about a rift between Guerrero and the Patriots, and Brady seemed to address those in a roundabout way.
“I feel like I just have a belief in who I am and I chart my own course and then I live the life I want to live — being physically fit and emotionally stable and spiritually sound,” he said. “Are there times where I’m frustrated that I feel like things are said about me that I wish I could defend? Yeah, but I don’t want to go into that mud every day, because I know that once I engage I’ll have to re-engage, and I don’t like fighting. That creates inner conflict in me.”
For what it’s worth, Guerrero was working on Brady in a private suite in Gillette Stadium on the day of the final regular season game of 2017. That puts to rest any rumors about Guerrero not being allowed on the premises over whatever falling out he and Bill Belichick did or didn’t have. Though, Guerrero himself mocked some of those reports earlier in the week.
