Tom Brady Punts on Deflategate

Tom Brandy Punts on Deflategate, but is happy to discuss his new Swiss watch, by Alex Williams

“The New England Patriots quarterback has a rifle of a right arm and now has something to brag about on his left wrist, thanks to TAG Heuer…

Given that Mr. Brady’s image is the cornerstone of the new contract, it seemed obligatory to acknowledge Deflategate (the controversy over deflating Patriot footballs). Even though his suspension was ultimately overturned, his sterling image took a hit.

Asked about his rough year, he cocked his head in a gesture of sincerity, squared his shoulders and, without the tiniest pause, eased into the soothing, patient tone of a father imparting wisdom to a young son.

‘I have a process that works for me,’ he said. ‘I look around admire different athletes because they don’t crack under pressure, those guys you always look to, you go, ‘Man, look at that poise, look at the attitude, look at the confidence.’

TAG Heuer’s marketing slogan, by the way, is ‘Don’t Crack Under Pressure.”

Touchdown, Brady.

Brady did not want to discuss his problems with the NFL (National Football League) about allegations about over inflated footballs and so he punted to avoid discussion.  Making a few points in the interview, he scored “a touchdown.”
