It might just be because Tom Brady has had two bad games in a row, but suddenly, there is scuttlebutt that Bill Belichick has some sort of undisclosed beef with Brady’s health and fitness guru, Alex Guerrero.
We’ve written about Guerrero, and Brady has had to defend him before. What makes this current issue interesting is that nobody’s sure what’s happening behind-the-scenes, but something appears to be up.
“I’ve heard whispers about that sort of thing, as well. There’s some sort of issue,” [Adam] Schefter said, via WEEI.com. “I truly do not know the extent of it. I don’t know how long it has been brewing or the history of it. Clearly, there’s something there, but I don’t know what to make of it, to be honest with you.”
“I don’t know how to quantify that, but again, it’s not the first time I have heard it this season, but I don’t have extensive knowledge of it to say, ‘Boy, this is a big deal, or this is not a big deal,’” he said.
Vague is the key word here. The only Brady injury the public is aware of is that nagging Achilles injury that has caused him to miss some practice each of the last three weeks. Does the Patriots staff have different theories on how best to recover?
Or is this much ado about nothing, and Brady’s fine, he just had an off game against the Dolphins after not looking sharp against the Bills?
