this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
A company that specializes in motivation and pickup (yeah, i know) but out a video featuring Brady, as kind of a metaphor or example. It was cool for me to see.
Pretty good video, have learned a lot from these guys, made a big difference in my life. Maybe some of you can get something out of it.
A lot of interesting things...
Not surprised to see Floyd "Money" Mayweather at the top or Ronaldo and Messi as 2 & 3...
but had no idea that Stafford is the 6th highest paid athlete in the world of sports. Stafford is probably not even a top 6 QB in the NFC North (kidding...sorta).
Other interesting names to most professional and collegiate fans in the state of Michigan include Tom Brady @ 7 and Calvin Johnson @ 16
Last night’s game featured a problem with New England’s back-up extra point holder. Ryan Allen (punter) got hurt on the safety and was unavailable in the 4thquarter. (NE went for 2 on their 3rdquarter TD). With Ryan Mallett, wide receivers, and other ‘hands’ type players on the bench, in steps Tom Brady to hold. This was the first time he held for an extra point since college.
This says a lot about the guy. Big game, certainly a must win, but a chance to get injured. All he needed was a knucklehead Colt with a chip on his shoulder, willing to risk a 15 yard penalty, to come crashing into Tom on a “PAT block” attempt. Tom came out for a second hold after the game was in hand. Leading by example or what!
P.S. – Ryan Mallett is rumored to be on the trading block.
I did not see this in the comments to the other post and if it is not "post worthy" fell free to delete.
Here is a BTN highlight video of "Tommy" Brady addressing the Michigan team:

Highlight? - His single greatest football achivement? Being Voted Michigan Captain.
I see that Fox Sports 1 is running an interview of Tom Brady with Michael Strahan today at 2:30. I'll be interested to see What Fox's analysis of college football looks like. I think much of the country is tired of the ESPN cheerleading for the SEC, and any counter balance to that will be welcome.
You can figure out what channel it's broadcast on in your area here:
The story in and of itself is (hopefully) nothing. But the fact that this happened on Tim Tebow's birthday is convenient for, well, no one but Tebow. Fingers crossed this doesn't end up ruining people's fantasy teams. And way to treat yourself Tim!
