If you don’t care, then it really doesn’t matter now does it? Well, we learned that even a high octane offense gets frustrated and Bill O’Brien is more than a puppet offensive coordinator. Brady admitted he made a “dumb” mistake in trying to force a pass to Tiquan Underwood in the back of the end zone. The Patriots were ready to go up two scores either via touchdown or field goal, when Brady undershot Underwood and the pass was picked off.
On the sideline, Brady was getting on Underwood to go get the ball when he was not so nicely reminded it’s the QB’s job to take care of the ball. Brady knew he made a mistake, but O’Brien let everyone know that if the 53rd player can get yelled at, the number one player can get some too when needed. It has been a highlight reel, but few really get what happened or why it will be a building block for the entire team.
