The sky is falling in New England after the Patriots were demolished by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night football. No, it’s not just those obnoxious Boston fans who are overreacting to Tom Brady’s horrific start to the 2014 season. Here’s what Donovan McNabb had to say after the game.
“Jimmy Garoppolo got in there and moved the ball down the field and got into the end zone. If this continues for another five or six weeks, the rumblings will start that this could be Tom Brady’s last year in New England. I’ll put it out there first.”
Jay Glazer, one of McNabb’s co-workers at Fox Sports, was shocked by what he heard come out of the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback’s mouth.
“Tom Brady’s last year in New England?” Glazer asked. “Are you out of your mind? There’s been rumblings every time Tom Brady has a bad game. … Are you crazy, dude? They don’t grow those guys on trees.”
Glazer and McNabb then began talking over each other, with Glazer’s main point being that Brady would be just fine if the Patriots got him a better offensive line and gave him some weapons.
Randy Moss, who is a former teammate of Brady’s, sat and chuckled while Glazer and McNabb went at it. Randy feels there is no chance Brady is going anywhere.
“Naw man, that’s Tom Brady,” he said. “He’s the face of the franchise. Not this year, maybe two, three, four years down the line. Tom Brady is the man in New England.”
If McNabb’s point was that Brady is no longer invincible and is showing serious signs of aging, it’s hard to disagree with him. But we have seen the Patriots make adjustments before, and no one would be surprised if they do it again. Brady may not play out his contract through the 2017 season, but there’s no way this is his last season in New England — no matter how much the team struggles.
