Brady; No Better Than Cam

Tom Brady hates losing, heck who doesn’t. He’s described as competitive, hardworking, a great teammate, a demanding leader, all great attributes.  Unfortunately, sportsmanship doesn’t seem to be an adjective that goes along with the descriptive terms behind Tom Brady’s name. 

The Patriots QB threw for a record, over 500 yards passing, in a Super Bowl and still came up short.  He came up short to the Eagles back-up Nick Foles.  The underdog Eagles upset the Belichick and Brady led mighty Patriots in Super Bowl LII. 

As the raucous Philly fans tore down and flipped over everything they could get their hands on, Brady refused to seek out the QB who had beaten him as Tom Terrific ran off the field. 
Sure, later on, Brady gave credit to the Eagles, but it wasn’t until AFTER he shunned the quarterback whose team won the sports biggest game.

Why do I bring this up you ask?  Because we call Brady a competitor, yet we called Cam Newton a loser, a whiner, petulant and worse.

Winning is easy, losing exposes your character.
