ďAge has definitely taken a toll. For him to still be doing it, thatís a great compliment for him. But I think that heís definitely not the same quarterback he was,Ē Robey-Coleman told Bleacher Report in an article posted Monday. ďMovement. Speed. Velocity. Arm strength. He still can sling it, but heís not slinging it as much. Whatever he was doing - because of his age and all that - heís not doing as much of that anymore. Heís still doing the same things; heís just not doing as much of it. And sometimes, itís not the sharpest. But it still gets done.Ē
What did he say there that has made folks mad? Brady is not the same at 41 as he was 3-5-10 years ago. Montana wasn't the same at 37 as 33. Kobe wasn't the same at 37 as 32 or 25. Jordan wasn't same at 38 as 33. Everyone goes downhill at some point as they get older. Everyone ages. Everyone's body takes a toll after many years of excellence. Tom Brady is not god that we have to sit here at 41 and say he is the same exact player as he was at 31 or 36. What - we going to say Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt at 32 are the same swimmer/runner respectively they were at 25? It's ridiculous Robey-Coleman has to apologize or justify his comments because of morons taking it out of context to get sound bites.
I understand Tom Brady getting butt-hurt because he needs something to motivate him, even if something taken out of context and brainless. Anyone else getting pissy over this? You are a moron.
