I have never had any motive other than that. My approach is and always has been to give people information based on my beliefs — then let them follow their own path toward what they believe works best for them. Ultimately every decision is up to each individual athlete.
Because of his relationship with Brady and the fact that he treated so many other players, Guerrero had nearly unlimited access to the team. But Belichick curbed that this year, exiling him from the sideline and locker room. After Belichick spelled that out in an email to Guerrero, several players reported that Guerrero had told them that Belichick had barred him from treating them. Some saw that as an attempt by Brady’s trainer to turn players against Belichick, dividing the team.
“They had 23 [points] at the end of the first quarter, we got [a great first quarter] out the way, but we got to also know we got four quarters of basketball left to play. So, we’re not impressed with giving up that many points in the last three quarters. We started the game off well, now we have to put the full game together.”
Kerr said he’s experimenting right now with the center position, stating that he’s looking for a spark. McGee will start again Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. “JaVale gave us a different look,” Curry said, “I think sped us up a little bit on the offensive end and gave us a threat above the rim and pressuring you in the paint.”
Lewis in 2017 was an excellent return man and remained an open-field threat as a receiver, but he also proved he can be a complete runner working between the tackles and handling a good workload. He was a key cog for New England, but that team doesn’t typically spend much to keep backs.
None of that matters. Croc doesn’t represent anything, now. Brady is not a playful guy when he loses, and he most likely won’t be a playful guy until he wins another Super Bowl. Can you imagine having to be around him in the days, weeks, and months following that loss? He probably won’t ever tell another joke again.
What I’m saying is, I fear the TB Times narrative is dead. I’d love for it to come back next year, I really would, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s run its course. Croc is probably dead, too. Brady, S.M.G., and D.K. have probably already sent him to a nice farm upstate to run around with all the other crocodiles, if you catch my drift.
He’s close to being fully recovered from the torn ACL he suffered in Jacksonville’s first game last season. He had a monster 2015 campaign as a big-play and red-zone threat before cooling off in 2016. He is the only true No. 1 outside wideout available, but the Jaguars have the cap room to bring him back post-injury.
