Why Tom Brady Doesn't Belong in the Hall of Fame

When discussing potential future Hall of Famers, Tom Brady seems like a no-brainier first ballot HOF'er. But I am here to tell you that the crying UGG model is not a first ballot selection. Moreover, he does not belong in Canton at all, and here's why: 1. He did not throw a single touchdown pass in 2008. That's right, Mr. Brady was outplayed in 2008 by the likes of Tyler Thigpen and JT O'Sullivan. How can a guy that threw ZERO touchdowns in what was supposed to be a golden season for the golden boy get into the Hall? Oh, you want to make the argument that Brady tore his ACL in the first game of the season? That brings me to my next point... 2. He's not tough. Sure, Tommy took a nasty hit from Patriot-killer Bernard Pollard during the 2008 season opener, but a football player who had just an ounce of heart would've toughed it out. Don't believe me? Look no further than Tom's teammate Logan Mankins, who played the entire 2013 with a torn ACL. Hell, receiver Hines Ward played his whole career without any ACLs. Yet Tom Brady has two of them, and the second one of them got some dirt on it, he crumbled. The man is a disgrace to the game. Oh and he sat out the second 2016 preseason game because he cut his finger with a pair of scissors. Ronnie Lott cut his damn finger off and still played, so just let that resonate. 3. He's the associate of a serial killer. Tom Brady loves him some Aaron Hernandez. Brady even called Hernandez a friend. In fact, a recent letter penned in blood (citation needed) by Hernandez from prison states that Brady was the teammate he was closest to, and that he "loves him to death." Surely Aaron Hernandez's best friend and possible romantic partner (citation needed) would have some understanding of his murderous escapades. Massachusetts inmate #W106228 even taught Tom Terrific a thing or two about destroying evidence when request by authorities. Brady destroyed his cell phone when it was requested as part of the deflategate scandal, which is precisely what Hernandez did with his phone when requested in his murder case. Simply put, Brady has the same M.O. as a convicted murderer. Sickening. 4. Tom Brady is a poor role model. Aside from associating with this generation's Charles Manson, Brady has consistently shown he is a man of poor morale character. In 2006, Tom impregnated a woman by the name of Bridget Moynahan. Aside from having premarital sex thereby showing a blatant disregard for the sanctity of marriage, Brady broke off his relationship with Ms. Moynahan soon after finding out she was pregnant, leaving this poor woman to tend to this child on her own. In fact, Brady wasn't even in the delivery room when his son was being born! Deadbeat dad? Check. Brady kicked the mother of his first born to the curb like she was damaged goods. Brady has the moral aptitude of a dad from the show 16 and Pregnant. So I guess we should not take character into consideration when voting someone into the Hall of Fame. Let's just vote serial rapist Darren Sharper into the Hall while we're at it. 5. He's only as productive as his receivers. How else do you go from throwing 24 touchdowns to 50 in one season? Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Rob Gronkowski have made Brady's career. Replace Kyle Orton with Tom Brady, and have the same results. Guaranteed. Speaking of which... 6. Matt Cassel, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brissett. These three quarterbacks all have won games for the Patriots when Brady was out due to a lack of toughness or suspension. What we see here is a pattern, a pattern that shows Belicheck can throw any scrub behind center in his system and still have success. What happened when Peyton Manning was hurt and Curtis Painter took the reins in 2011? The Colts went 2-14 and Curtis Painter was prohibited from ever touching the pigskin again. Hell, Belicheck has so much faith in his QB friendly system that he named Julian Edelman the backup QB in week 3 of the 2016 season! Edelman's a friggin wide receiver who last played QB for the lowly Kent State! So you tell me with Mr. Brady: hall of fame QB, or product of a system? 7. He's been suspended. Tell me, how many Hall of Fame QB's have served any suspension time during their career? Probably none. So why should a confirmed cheater be inducted into the hall? Sure Cooperstown, go ahead and let Barry Bonds and Pete Rose in, their cheating ways were really no big deal. This makes me sick that we would even consider inducting a deplorable human being like Tom Brady who has made a mockery of the game. Disgusting. So there you have it, Tom Brady simply is unfit for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Oh, and there's all that stuff about him cheating and what not.
