…because if there is one thing that they don’t need is for the New England Patriots and Tom Brady to have one more reason to think of themselves as underdogs, hated by the NFL and wanting revenge:
Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers … and … and?
The fourth playoff quarterback never appeared in the championship round teaser for the 2017 NFL Playoffs on NFL Network. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the only quarterback left out.
Let the anti-NFL conspiracy theories commence.
It’s worth noting that if you go to the NFL network twitter feed or the NFL site this story is completely ignored.
Well we can’t assume the NFL has it in for the Patriots, it’s not as if they’re rescinding fines for opposing players body slamming members of the Patriots on the field and celebrating, oh wait.
What kind of message does this send to the rest of the league? For a guy that’s all about integrity, Roger Goodell certainly sends a weird message to the players.
In fairness it might not be about their hatred of the Patriots, it could be all about Brady & Kraft’s public friendship with the president elect, either way if I’m the Steelers I don’t need this right now.
