Tom Brady's subtle jab toward Jets
By James Walker
When you talk as much trash and lose as many games as the New York Jets, it’s natural to be the butt of some jokes. Rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the latest to poke fun at Rex Ryan and Co.
Brady, in an interview with WEEI in Boston, told the station he doesn’t understand how the Jets could give up on a player like Danny Woodhead. The running back was cut by Ryan and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum in 2010. Woodhead was picked up by the Patriots soon after and he's been a valuable contributor.
Brady even pointed out how the Jets misused Woodhead as a receiver when he was clearly a running back in college. It was a subtle way of Brady saying the Jets didn’t know what they were doing.
The irony is that New York could use a change-of-pace running back like Woodhead this season.
