Tom Brady is set to make his regular-season debut this Sunday after spending a month in exile. The rest of the NFL isn’t exactly excited to have him back.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report quoted two coaches Wednesday who sound downright terrified by the fact that Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension now is over.
“Thanks to Roger Goodell,” one AFC defensive assistant coach told Freeman, “Tom Brady is going to kill us all.”
“This Tom Brady scares the (expletive) out of me,” one NFC defensive assistant added.
Brady’s first victim? The Cleveland Browns, who host the New England Patriots in Week 5.
The Browns are the only team in the NFL that has yet to win a game this season, and Cleveland head coach Hue Jackson admitted earlier in the week that facing Brady in the quarterback’s first game back will be “not fun at all.”
Apparently, he’s not the only one who feels that way.
