If you’re Rodger Goodell, how did you not watch this during Thursday’s opening game and jump out of your seat? After everything that has transpired between you, the quarterback and his franchise, the last thing you want to see is a million clones of Brady.
I can just see Goodell thinking to himself, “I didn’t prepare for this one. It’s just a commercial, but could it actually be real? It’s definitely something the Patriots would try.” And yes, they absolutely would try to build an army of Brady’s. At the minimum, it’d be at least a passing thought.
I can just imagine it now. Here’s how the Brady clone scheme would begin:
It’s March 20th, 2015, a little over a week after Darrelle Revis bolted back to the Jets. Belichick brings Kraft into his office. It’s Monday morning, 6 a.m. That’s assuming, of course, Kraft doesn’t arrive at Gillette Stadium at dawn like Belichick because he’s still waking up next to girlfriend Ricki Lander. Anyways, they sit down, Belichick rolls up his sleeves. Kraft sits silently, still rubbing out the fatigue from under his swollen eyes.
The Genius leans back in his chair, takes a breath and says, “So, we have some money left over from not signing Revis…I have an idea.”
Kraft still sits quietly, listening.
Belichick: “No one in the NFL has ever thought of this before. It involves Tom. I think it could help us take down the NFL for good.”
And then, because we all know the Patriots adjust quickly on the fly, a few months later an army of Brady’s are created. The Under Armour commercial is nothing but a preview of things to come for Goodell and his minions. It’s a quick glimpse into what’s forming up north.
If that’s not further proof for you, look no further than Patriots’ defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. The Patriots don’t let these images leak out unless…they mean to.
