Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees has his hands full with trying to stop the New England Patriots on Sunday, and he knows more than the average person about just how deadly Tom Brady and company can be. Pees was a defensive coach for the Patriots from 2004-2009, so he has experience watching Brady from the sidelines and going up against him in practice. So how does he intend to stop him this weekend in Foxboro? “Hire Tonya Harding,” Pees joked on Thursday according to the Boston Herald. “If they were getting off the bus, I’d spray water outside the bus and hope it freezes. “He is who he is. I went against him up there in practice for six years. He’s as competitive of a person as I’ve ever been around. He can give you this little boyish look on TV, but he is a very, very, very competitive guy. He didn’t even like losing in practice. The more we rode him on defense, because I had a couple trash talkers, the harder he played. He is who he is. He’s going to play well.” That’s a cruel joke that legendary skater Nancy Kerrigan certainly would not appreciate, but you get the point. Pees gushed about Brady and called him a Hall of Fame quarterback, reiterating that he expects him to play well and that all Baltimore can do is try to disrupt him the best way they can. While the way a playoff game will go is impossible to predict, common sense would tell you that the Ravens will have to score a lot of points this weekend if they want to advance to the Super Bowl. A certain Baltimore linebacker may think New England runs a “gimmick” offense, but talking trash isn’t going to help them stop it. Nobody knows that better than Pees.
