Former Patriots safety and NFL analyst Rodney Harrison is calling the Patriots out again. This time he sets is sights on the greatest Patriot of all.
Harrison while speaking to WEEI, said “Brady looks scared to death in the pocket.”
Former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said Tuesday that quarterback Tom Brady looks “scared to death” when he drops back in the pocket to pass.
Harrison, a former teammate of Brady’s and current NBC Sports football analyst, told WEEI 93.7 FM in Boston that it “hurt” him to see the Patriots struggle as badly as they did in Monday night’s 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Harrison attributed Brady’s struggles to the shambled offensive line protecting him.
“Tom Brady can still play,” Harrison said. “But when you surround him — there’s a reason why Brandon LaFell was let go [by Carolina]. He’s not a great player. He’s a young guy, and he has to make his way in this league.
“And Danny Amendola, you look at him, no one ever said he was a great player. He’s always been hurt. The history is behind it. Rob Gronkowski obviously coming off that ACL injury, he’s been hurt. So it’s not like when you look at the Patriots on paper they just have all these weapons and teams are afraid of them.”
