Bill Simmons did an interview with Colin Cowherd earlier this week and spoke about Tom Brady’s new deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It looks like Simmons doesn’t really approve of it.
Tom Brady spent the last twenty seasons playing in New England, helping them reach nine Super Bowls while winning six of them. On the other hand, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the lowest win percentage in the league while also not reaching the playoffs since 2013. Because of these facts, Simmons explained it was hard for him to understand why Brady would want to sign with them:
“Why now?? It’s been 20 years! You have a chance to have one of the all-time careers: drafted by a team and finishes your career with the team. Didn’t you watch the reaction with Kobe in Los Angeles and how much he meant to people here because he stayed here the whole time? Like what is better than that for a legacy? You’re going to go to Tampa, play for Bruce Arians, and have a bunch of 75-year-olds in the stands on a team with no history? How do you do this?? How is this how your career ends? I just don’t get it… I think he’s just going to keep going until this thing ends badly, and he has that same season that Peyton Manning had when Manning had 9 TDs and 17 INTs and people were wondering if Brock Osweiler should take his job. Is that how Brady wants this to end? I guess it is.”
On the other hand, Colin Cowherd said:
“I’ve said before, I think Tom Brady wins the divorce in the first year against the Patriots. I think the division for New England is getting tougher and people outside of football don’t understand how good Tampa’s weapons are.”
We can’t wait to see if Cowherd’s prediction turns out to be true!
