Bradford and Drellich discuss the Brady-Gisele-concussion fiasco that blew up last week -- 5-21-17
The boys get into Gisele's interview with Charlie Rose in which she claimed that Brady has had concussions during his career and had one last season. What do we make of this claim and does that make you question Brady's desire to play for five or so more years? It's funny how Pats fans automatically assume she was wrong.
to the official. And I felt diagnosis procedures right but doesn't mean Tom Brady didn't have. I think acknowledges allegedly doled out eight and I think we would both be shocked if Tom Brady hasn't had. In total. It's it's just and the first thing I thought of when this came out wise. All right you guys you want Tom Brady play in a 45. Or may be beyond. Because he eats the Cahill he takes could carry himself and he's pliable you
more people out there that you would think who thought exactly that Tom Brady can't possibly African confident. He takes to get Kara homes are too many people think cigar walks on water in general but
what we have more than one or two or three. When Troy Troy Aikman had a bunch of concussions when he was like it's actually want you get out of the game. But Tom Brady I don't know how many concussions he's had this assume that he's had a few but he's I can navigate you want to play five more years. If you switch in the game right now I have to think that he wouldn't have some level of damage from from concussions throughout his career to this point. Yeah absolutely no but that's the dangerous thing because people think that could be possible Tom Brady because it's if you don't really think yeah I absolutely believe that. I have fully believe that peace that he has suffered a whole thing he just as any other thought is that it's the whole thing. About now a little bit different because CT is much more serious than a dislocated shoulder but. Would Tom Brady have been able to wasn't able to get through this year as healthy productive as he did. Because of how well he
