TB12 the brand……… Tom Brady is one of those kind of Athletes that doesn’t come around all that often, much like Micheal Jordan in Basketball, or Bobby Orr in hockey, These Individuals defy the odds, rewrite the record books and come with more raw talent, then even they themselves are surprised by their greatness, but yet ask them of their greatness and they will never admit to any of their success, only praising their teammates, for helping them with their success.

Tom Brady may be the Quarter back and player for the New England Patriots, but he would be nothing without a great leader or Maestro of the orchestra, a person that is so brilliant in not just looking at football as a game, but taking it too the next level, always being three moves ahead of his opponents and treating the game on the field just like a chess game, with each position of the chess board being strategically placed, to keep that competitive advantage, plus making sure each of the players buy into the, ” Do your job” mentality.

Now you can’t have a great quarterback or a great coach, without a great Owner, someone who is just as dedicated and competitive as the coach and quarterback tandem. The Owner is where it all starts and not just an owner that invests in a team to make good on his investment, but an owner that turns his investment into a gold mine for many years to come, with many generations reaping the benefits and joy of his investment.

With Robert Kraft…….. Yes it is true he is a very successful Business man, yes he has a lot of wealth and can afford many exotic things, but he is also a man who is still in touch with where he has come from, he also had season tickets to the Patriots, back in a time where winning games were far and few between, so he knows through experience, just how we true Patriot fans have suffered til now. Bob Kraft is one of the greatest owners of all sports and as a business man, he has surrounded himself with the smartest of football minds, which has turned the New England patriots into a very successful organization.

The best move the Kraft’s have made was, bringing in Bill Belichek. This man has become one of the game of football’s all time best coaches and by best, I mean more like a genius in understanding the game inside the game. His philosophy to the game may seem high tech to most, but to those who understand, it is actually very simple like just, ” Do your job”. Now the so called sports Media may not like him or his press conferences, simply because they can’t get that much info from him, or made too look just as stupid, with each stupid question they ask him, but if you ask me? The so called sports Media totally gets what they deserve, as they try to look smarter than the smartest coach within the history of the NFL.

Then there is Brady? call him what you want, but there is no denying him the title of, ” The Greatest of all Time……….the G. O. A. T”. This is a guy that was drafted so far down in the draft, no other team wanted to give him a chance and seriously! look at him now, not too mention of just how jealous some players may be of him, to the point where they have to say fake things or make things up to try to knock him off his game? I got news for you!!!  When there is ice in your veins, it is very hard to be rattled, or to be taken out of focus, not too mention when you are as competitive as Tom Brady, you not only try to be as perfect as you can be, but you also look for perfection in all those around you. We have seen Brady lose it on the sidelines and the so called media try’s to spin it as Tom is far from a team player, Huh!!! If only they knew that this is the fuel that feeds his competitive fire, when things in the game aren’t going as planned, yes he may get a bit vocal, but this is only his competitiveness that is trying to light a spark underneath his teammates, so they can wake up and play as they have been coached during the long hard practices.

Say what you want of the New England Patriots, but what I say is, ever since Bob Kraft bought this team, he has not only made good on his investment, he has turned a sports franchise around, where the winning environment around town has become so infectious,  that the other other pro teams in town, are doing what they can in their sports, to be like the New England Patriots. Not everybody can be like the Patriots, just like their is only one Bob Kraft and I am happy that I can enjoy the fruits of his labor, while the Patriots keep winning not only games, but Championships year after year.

” What I say to the other teams is, ” if you want to be a champion” then step up to the plate and beat a champion”

” The competitive fire is within us all, but unless you unleash it, you will never experience being great at what you do”

” The great owner/the great coach/the great quarterback, call it what you want, but without these as the main ingredients, you have nothing to build greatness around you”

” Instead of hating on a champion, then step up to the plate and beat the champion”

” Say what you want of the Patriots but what I say is,  We are experiencing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts”

Big Vince and the New England Patriots

big vince             This is a letter I pulled off of Twitter that was retweeted by DJ Bean, who is within the Boston Sports Media. Looks like Big Vince is in the process of a big decision.

Vince Wilfork is one of those type of players in sports, that doesn’t come along very often, not only was he a great player and even a big time player, but more important was that he was a very special player throughout his years here in New England. You can put him in the same category as Teddy Brushci and Tom Brady, the three of them have multiple championships with the same team and all three are very good leaders who redefined what being a true leader is. Big Vince led by example and has never been any kind of trouble for his team.

Big Teddy bear, that is a nickname I gave this great player of Vince Wilfork, off the field and within the 5th quarter press conferences, this is how Big Vince came across, on the field how ever, there was no more a competitive player than Big Vince, even when the other team doubled team him, he still found a way to break up a play. When he tipped that ball in the air, then caught it and ran for the touchdown, I was overcome with tears of joy, only cause that was Vince being Vince and what made him a great player.

With this letter and seeing that Big Vince has a decision to make, I as a true Patriot fan will back him 100%, no matter what his decision whether retirement or playing for another team? I will always be a Big Vince fan and wish him the best of luck in what ever decision he makes. We as true New England Patriot fans owe him this, for all his hard work he has done for his team and teammates and especially for the way he came back from his injury, a torn Achilles would probably of side lined an ordinary player longer or end their career?   As Big Vince used it to motivate himself even more, for the benefit of his team.

Now the sports media may spin this hundreds of different ways, only cause that is their job and creating drama is what they do, without the drama they will have no job, hence then maybe we can all watch and enjoy our sports and favorite players even more. With that said, anybody that says anything bad about Big Vince, does not really know Big Vince. He is not only a great player on Game day, but what he brings to his team/teammates, is true leadership and trusting in his teammates as they should trust in him to do their jobs on the field and with their motto of “do your job” this season, then ending with another championship, speaks loudly of how Big Vince was throughout his career here with the New England Patriots.

” Big Vince was a great leader for his team and his attitude and actions proved just that”

“Good luck in all you do Big Vince, as this fan is a fan for life”
