    Chris Mortenson sites "Sources familiar with the team" as he says Brady is "Un Happy"!

    I find this interesting considering it was earlier today that Mike Reiss wrote a nice piece about so called journalists scrounging for material when they bring up Brady's contract situation. Much like the Yahoo piece about a "growing disconnect" Reiss went on to say that there is no evidence to suggest Brady is un happy( I'd like to think Mike would know) .

    Now later today on NFL LIVE BSPN basically shredded the Pats suggesting that BRady is "Very Unhappy" Mort says after speaking with ex-players who have known Brady??????? oh yeah and "Sources familiar with the team" What exactly does sources familiar with the team even mean??? They went on to suggest other players will look at this as a sign to "Get there money now" because if the organization won't take care of Tom then why would they take care of them. They did everything but say we are doomed and we have no chance of winning a game this year. It is hilarious.

    This is the kind of speculative stories that Mike went out of his way to speak against in today's column...it's too bad he works for the main culprits.

    Oh Boy..S.O.S.  They say this about every Patriot that is worth resigning. Seymour, Samuel, Wilfork, Milloy, Ty Law, Ted Washington. They just have a template at ESPN that says the same thing and they insert the new name when they want to run a story.Everybody is always unhappy in New England. Funny thing is when you ask the players they all say they love the organization. Thank god for unnamed sources close to the team..I.E. Tony Mazz, Gasper, Thomase and others.Felger is one of the best unnamed sources in town.

    You folks realize that UD, Leon, Togah, Jbolt, me, you and any of a hundred other "fans" are all "Familiar with the team".

    Though truth be told he probably is just as unhappy with the situation as the Pats front office is. But there is a big difference in being "un happy" with the situation and being unhappy with the Pats front office. Then again maybe what Tom really said was "I'm not glad I don't have an extension yet but it doesn't bother me either."

    Since Brady signed this contract, I can't see how he is unhappy with the terms of this year.  The franchise tag and an extension seems to be the worst case scenario.  That will make Brady one of the highest paid players in the league. 

    On top of that, he's married to a super model....not sure how 'unhappy' Brady can really be!

    Because if he gets hurt the Pats and any team can low ball Tom. Hes basically in Mankins position but the deal is already signed and hes unhappy. 

    Brady has every right to be upset and they should have extended him already. Wilforks deal to the young guys are probably gone out of their head. They are probably looking at Brady right now saying wow this guys not getting paid?

    " Sources familiar with the team" 
     Thats ESPN speak for Mortenson gave the hot dog vendor at Foxbough a 10 spot.

      If Brady can go dancing with a "broken foot" he can play out his contract.

    No, the young guys aren't saying that cause BB got rid of those guys. Also the "if they get hurt" argument holds no water. There is this thing called insurance that covers them if they get hurt. And if they didn't have insurance then they would be pretty dumb and Brady ain't dumb.

         Guys...ESPN hates the Patriots...and the Pats hate them. Guys like Mort, Tom Jackson, and Steve Young were the biggest spygate drum-beaters. They want to do everything they can to bury BB...what better a way than to mess with the Pats and their fans by trying to give a non-story like this legs? 

         Oh course Brady is "unhappy" with his current contract. But, that doesn't mean that he's ready to hold out. He knows that the Pats will eventually take care of him.

    Brady signed the contract, so if he is unhappy, that is just too bad.

    He didn't seem unappy the last two years when he got paid while on the DL for one year and then followed it up with a mediocre performance last year. 

    This is an important year for Brady.  He needs to prove himself worthy of a big deal going forward.  I think the Pats should take their time.  Lets see how he does over the first 8 games.

    Re: Chris Mortenson sites "Sources familiar with the team" as he says Brady is "Un Happy"!

    That is a great breakdown Russ. I think it is what most of us have thought over the past years when we see guys like Tom J, Marshall Faulk(HATES US), Mark S, Chris Carter, Mortenson,Baldinger,. These guys have an agenda when it comes to discussing the Patriot dynasty. It is obvious.

    The good thing about all of this is that the Patriots just plain play better when they have a chip on the shoulder. This will ignite a fire under BB, Brady and the rest of the team. It is the classic "Us against the world" mentality.

    I can see Kevin Faulk right now at training camp getting the youngsters fired up in Rodney Harrison fashion. "Nobody believes in us" "They don't think we can do it" We will use this as more fuel to the fire and I cannot wait till this season starts!

    I completely disagree with pretty much everything you have said here. Brady signed a contract yes, after he had gone out of his way multiple times to restructure affording the team the chance to sign better players. The contract he signed was front loaded as to make up for the earlier times he took less for the team. I am pretty sure the idea between him and the organization was that he will never play the last year of this contract where he is making less money then 90% of the QBs in the league

    To your 2nd point that Brady had a "mediocre performance" Are you serious? He had his 2nd best statistical season of his career. 2nd only to the greatest season in NFL history. He had absolutely zero options after Moss/WW. All three of them battled injuries which should have further derailed our playoff hopes in a rebuilding year,but didn't because Brady held that team together. I would say the team had a mediocre year but only to us fans lofty standards. We still made the playoffs and when you lose your #1 wr option going into the playoffs with only 1 other option left on the team then your probably not gonna win.

    Finally to say that Brady needs to "prove himself worthy of a big deal going forward" is a terrible idea. Forgetting his resume with the Patriots for a moment lets just take a look at the fact he came back from the worst injury a player can have and was still a top 5 QB. I sincerely hope that is not the organizations mindset because if it is we may have to find out what life after Brady is a little sooner then any of us would really like. Meaning he might just take offense to that, test the FA waters and forget the hometown discount this time around.

    A player like Brady comes along once in a great while. He is player that has proven himself to this team and us fans everytime he puts on the uniform. This is a player that you lock up for as long as he is willing to play. Not one that you "wait" or take your time with before you sign him.

    Just my opinion.

    Yeah I heard on ESPN today Brady and the Pats aren't even near signing him  cause he wasn't happy what they offered I like to know where these Idiots get there Information Cause when you go on the Globe or the Boston sites and Pats site It don't say that It says Brady don't want to discuss anything yet. It don't say he isn't happy Who's he kidding He is waiting on Manning to see how much Manning gets paid. Brady has it made In Boston Robert Kraft loves him. and he said Brady isn't going anywhere

    Tom Brady isn't mad about anything. He already knows he'll have his own wing in Patriot place and the state of Massachusetts might even retire his number upon his retirement. 

    He's, basically, the king of New England.

    I remember thinking the same thing about Adam Vinatieri. I never dreamed he'd leave New England.

    That said, I don't believe any of the faerie tales written about Brady, Kraft will make sure he stays. But there's always the possibility. God forbid!

    One thing I'm sure of is that the Media has no clue what's going on between Brady and the Patriots front office or how he feels about it.  We all know the Pats and Brady don't discuss those things and a frustrated media just throws out guesses.

    In Response to Re: Chris Mortenson sites "Sources familiar with the team" as he says Brady is "Un Happy"!:
    In Response to Re: Chris Mortenson sites "Sources familiar with the team" as he says Brady is "Un Happy"! : Have you noticed a pattern with the former players or current players who were very irrational and mouthy about Spygate? They share similar agendas: 1. If they are a current player, they lost at some point to NE in the playoffs or SB, and were likely on one of the teams that took NE for granted, felt entitled and then got embarassed because they didn't show up.  We know who these teams were and who the mouthy players are.  There is a slew of these teams, both in the AFC and the SB losers from St. Louis, Carolina and Philly. 2. If they were a former player, now on ESPN in particular or jealous players who only won one ring or simply got no rings, OR.....Had MULTIPLE rings but are deemed BELOW the NE Dynasty level (Denver/Schelereth) all have the agenda of trying to bring NE down with this to make their own SB rings seem on par or superior to NE's incredible runs.   So, all of these types have an agenda. And the sad part is, they get the loudest microphones and the apparently and intentionally lost the most brain cells when speaking about the topic. Also, if you notice the Cowboys former players like Aikman and Irvin, etc, or a Moose Johnston type all didn't say much, likely because of Jimmy Johnson admitting he absolutely conducted legal taping and explained that some teams liked using it and some teams didn't.  At the end of the day, ESPN led the charge. and I would not be surprised if they prodded everyone who worked there to do their part, "within reason", to continue to attack the NE Patriots whenever possible.  1. Because BB and his players never really gave ESPN interviews during the dynasty run.   And of course, BB barely spoke outside of the press conferences. 2. And to some degree, this is more directly related to the local papers here, with "writers" like Ron Borges, whom I believe was thrown out of a press conference by BB at one point. The same Ron Borges who magically was hired by John Tomase's Boston Herald, after being fired for plagiarism.  I still cannot believe Borges was re-hired in this market. As we know, the Herald lied about the SB 36 "walkthrough tape", another media fabrication based on speculation, heresay and outright lies. And, we know about the Tom Jackson Sept. 2003 comments, which actually started the rocky relationship with ESPN and New England. ESPN thought they deserved more access to the Patriots and their success to make as much money off of that as possible, and they were not satisfied with what they got.  I think that showed through pretty clearly when they led the witch hunt against NE on the heels of the Spygate charge, led by a jealous rival in NY. Heck, I remember when ESPN lied about Mangini and BB's postgame handshake.  To this day, fans out there think BB refused to shake his hand, which is a lie.  It was a very cold, short handshake, but he shook his hand.  Meanwhile, they see Michael Holley and David Halberstam with carte blanche access, and ESPN likely was annoyed by this. So, ESPN definitley had a major agenda with this, and it stemmed back to the earlier part of the decade. This is the reason, in my opinion, why ESPN lied to the public about the contexts, facts and details with Spygate and why it was carried out for 8 months. This, of course, is not counting the Matt Walsh lies. I wouldn't be surprised if ESPN had something to do with not only finding Walsh and interviewing him to infuse the story further, but also suggested he hold his ground to draw Goodell even further along. Would not be surprised at all.  ESPN made millions off that story.
    Posted by russgriswold

    I think your right about these guys having thwir own agenda to prove.  The thing that bothered me about ESPN's coverage and all the media coverage was that there was really no reporting.  Just months of speculation and conjecture.  What does this player think of taping or that player.  Do you think there was an advantage?  How much of an advantage?  The same speculation over and over.  We kept hearing the Pats violated the memo by Goodell.  Anyone ever seen that memo, what specifically did it say?  How does that compare with the filming rules?  Where can you film?  What can you film?  Where are those things in the rulebook?

    I kept waiting for someone somewhere to write something other than an opinion piece and say what the actual rules are and specifically which rules were broken.  To this day I still have no idea what the actual taping rules are.  ESPN would tell us you can't tape from the sidelines but every game every week we see a team camera man on the sideline.  Is somebody making sure he doesn't tape signals?  How is that aloud?  What's the difference between that and what the Pats did.  I still feel like the media failed to get any actual facts out and just focused on opinion. 

    Shoddy reporting all around, maybe one day someone will write a story that covers the filming rules and what exactly is the difference between the Pats sideline cameraman and everyone elses but I've yet to see it.

    You're right, a memo isn't a rule, and no one seems to have seen it. Remember the 'tuck rule' was actually cited by number in the rule book, so it really pissed evryone else off! Goodell never cited a specific rule #, did he? I really don't remeber if he did.
