All gas, no brakes. Jets head coach Robert Salih used the phrase to show how hard the team has worked this year.
Pirates midfielder Tom Brady agrees. He established himself as one of the most hard-working players in the NFL – he even won it COVID-19 was expelled from the park during operation during the pandemic.
That’s why Brady was surprised when he told the players to spend less time during the season.
“In May and June, we didn’t have to have overly competitive workouts,” Brady said said the Boston Globe. “There are no baseball players throwing 95 mph in mid-December.”
Famer Hall Troy Aikman, who was initially “amazed” by the comments, eventually realized that Brady was using a trick.
“I realized that was the greatness of Tom Brady because I can assure him that he won’t take those days off and that team won’t take those days off. And that’s why he sees it as a common competitive advantage, ”Aykman said in Ringer’s Pilot Coach podcast. “If teams train less and he trains more, it will help him in the competition and I think that was all the motivation in his comments.”
This is not surprising. Brady is a seven-time Super Bowl champion who has never picked a tag in his career. He rarely rests – this season he comes back sooner than expected after knee surgery – so if he has any rivals, Brady is making progress when he wins his eighth title.
“I’m all for the holidays,” Aykman said. “I’m ready for anything, but at some point you have to ask yourself the question: do you want to be great or not? Do you want to be a great team? Do you want to be a great player? If you do, then you have to spend time. “
Brady, he said, may have hinted at a recent HBO show in the Store that he was blowing smoke.
“My words and my opinion are two different things,” Brady said. “I say 90 percent of what I say is not what I think, it’s hard. I really admire people who can do this and what they think because they offer other things. I think there’s a part I don’t like about conflict. So in the end, I always try to play it very flat. ”
