Tom Brady is the ultimate example of doing things right on and off the field. He has obviously been an incredible winner at all levels, has a pretty spotless record when it comes to trouble, and he models Uggs and is married to a supermodel. Basically, if he gives you advice, you should probably listen. Yesterday, Brady (and Pats owner Robert Kraft) appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box, and talked about a variety of things, from nutrition, to Tim Tebow, to how to respect your teammates and handle yourself on the field. Of course, the topic of Johnny Manziel came up, and Brady suggested that, just maybe, Manziel is acting like a turd: Here’s his quote: “I get pretty emotional. I have a lot of respect for the teammates, for my teammates, for my organization, and certainly for other guys in the NFL. There’s not a guy playing in the NFL who hasn’t earned the right to be here, and who isn’t supremely talented. He’s probably been the best athlete in his high school class, in his elementary school class. So when you look across the ball you have respect for those guys, and you treat them with respect because football’s a physical game. And as RKK would say, if you’re a turd, it’s going to come back to you.” [NFL.com]
