Will listen later. Here’s what I know. Brady’s arm strength today, is not what it will be at the end of October. He’s 43. No one gets better at football at 43 years old.

Oh you know? Oh ok. Well there ya have it folks. Who needs scouts, or statements from players who are playing next to him. Deflategatesteve knows everything. But you’re not biased against Brady at all “deflate gate Steve” lol
