Brady getting social?
If anyone thinks for a second that Tom Brady spends a fleeting moment thinking about his Facebook page, think again. TB12 has better things to worry about, like how to keep swarming defenses from knocking him down, and how to get the Patriots offense back on it’s feet.
That doesn’t stop two and half million people from liking his Facebook page, including She’s Game Sports.
Posts of note are Brady’s resume during his days at the University of Michigan, and most recently, the photo of the botched high five with his boss Robert Kraft.
Tom Brady meets with the media once a week for ten minutes. Yesterday he was asked about reading progressions, being hurried in the pocket, second and third reads and ramping up the pass protection. All legitimate questions given what’s happened over the first 3 games, and all answered in the usual polite, Tom Brady tone.
Then came this.
Reporter’s question: “I wanted to ask you about the fun you’ve been having lately on Facebook, with the college resume and the Robert Kraft high five. What was the thought with that?”
Brady’s answer: “I don’t know. I’m not really the social media king, but there are a lot of people who put a lot of time an energy into it, and it’s a pretty popular thing these days. I’m glad you had some fun with it, glad you enjoyed it. That’s the goal.”
The notion of Tom Brady “having fun” on Facebook is hilarious. After a 12 hour day of meetings, practice, conditioning and film the last thing on his mind is entertaining his millions of followers when he goes home at night. (Remember, he also has a wife and 3 kids.)
The real “fun” will begin when Brady likes the way things are going on game day.
In the meantime, Brady’s social media team is coming up big. Too bad the same can’t be said for his offensive line.
