It wasn't difficult to find criticism directed at Tom Brady Friday.
The change in Brady has gotten everybody talking, including Glenn Ordway, Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria on OMF Friday afternoon.
"It’s so uncharacteristic," Faura said. "If you go back and look at some the old posts of guys who left and got away its like Shawshank Redemption. Danny Amendola. Gronkowski, remember that? ‘Be happy you’re free.’ It’s the same thing. He’s Andy Dufresne who is finally free. He’s in the river and he has his hands up, filled with poop and smells like crap and he’s like, ‘Finally, I’m free. Let me enjoy it. Nobody is going to break my stride. I’m going to be me.’ This is who he is. … The guy we saw for the last 20 years? That wasn’t Tom Brady, that was Clark Kent. What we’re seeing now is the real Tom Brady."
Added Merloni. "For him it’s personal. ‘I’m out to prove I’m not done.’"
But all of it comes should come with a warning, explained Fauria. As the former Patriots tight end points out, there was a reason the way Brady did before served him well.
