A New England Patriots fan sent a clear message to Tom Brady, as did the team’s Week 4 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
According to WCVB-TV Boston, a picture of Brady’s face has been crossed out in black ink and a flag that reads “You are a patriotic country” is clearly expected near Gillette Stadium to see the former Patriots quarterback.
Brady led the Patriots to six Super Bowl titles in his 20-year career with the franchise. It’s hard to imagine any patriotic fan going to Tampa Bay would be so angry at the veteran, especially since Robert Kraft and Bill Belick didn’t want to make a promise to him when he was 45 years old.
Many New England fans still have a place in their hearts for Brady. However, they will always put the Patriots first and Sunday’s game is a big game. This will determine whether the Patriots fall to 1-3 or improve to 2-2.
Brady recently told Jim Gray about their “Let’s Go!” Podcast on SiriusXM that he doesn’t expect Patriots fans to route for him on Sunday night.
“I think they’re going to route there for their team and their team is patriotic,” Brady said. “And I must have had a lot of people who have been happy for me over the years. I know I will probably be there. I will have a lot of family there and I have a lot of friends who wanted to go there.
“The house crowd in Gillette is a huge crowd. I’m going there to try to win the football game. So I think they’ll respect it for me.
There are more stains for the books in Sunday’s game. This will determine whether the club enters Week 5 2-2 or 3-1.
