It was one year ago when Bruce Arians had a guy with a cannon of an arm, a stout defense, and a 7-9 record. This season he is in the conference championship. What changed?
Tom Mother Trucking Brady.
I've heard arguments that Bruce Arians deserves more credit than Brady. Brady's just a QB, Brady has more help than Winston had, blah blah blah. Let's face the facts people.
The most notable additions to this team beyond Tom Brady are Rob Gronkowski, who Brady brought in, Leonard Fournette, and Antonio Brown, who Brady also brought in. Bruce Arians had gone on record to say he wouldn't even consider bringing Brown in! But look who made that decision.
Arians has also gone on record to say it's frustrating when he tells a guy something and then Tom says the same thing, but the player only does it after Brady says to. Who is in control of this team? It's Tom Brady.
My final note to leave you with is another thought from Bruce Arians. "Having Brady is like having another coach out there." He should've said it feels like I'm the assistant coach because that is what's happening right now.
What do you think?
