Tom Brady is aware of his numbers.
Whether or not it is his seven championship rings, 581 touchdowns or the quantity on his again, Brady could be very, very accustomed to numbers. Which may clarify why TB12 is not a fan of the NFL’s new quantity guidelines.
Lower than 24 hours after the league introduced a relaxed bracket on quantity guidelines for place teams, Brady took to Instagram to level out his dissatisfaction with the change.
“Good luck attempting to dam the correct folks now !! !!,” Brady wrote on his Instagram story. “going to make for lots of dangerous soccer”
Brady would proceed his tirade on the ‘Gram quickly after the primary publish:

“DUMB,” Brady stated. “Why not Let the lineman put on no matter they need? Why have numbers? Simply have coloured jerseys…why not put on the identical quantity?…DUMB @nfl @nflpa”
There is a fairly respectable likelihood that Brady — who truly tends of being fairly good on social media (or his workforce not less than) — is definitely simply laying on the sarcasm a bit thick. You’ll be able to by no means inform lately.
If he is being critical, although, Brady has one thing of a degree: With linebackers and defensive backs allowed to put on single digits and extra now, the confusion for the offensive line is likely to be an additional step to determine earlier than the snap.
Whereas defensive linemen numbers are staying the identical, determining which linebackers and DBs to dam with out being in a confined quantity bracket may make issues a bit tougher for the offense.
Then once more, pointing at a participant and his quantity should not change issues too drastically, particularly for a workforce with the one biggest quarterback in NFL historical past. Or any workforce with linemen with half a mind for that matter.
Hear, so long as 52 continues to be the Mike, then we should always all get by means of this simply advantageous.
