That is why it is called a “TEAM,” Antonio! Brady is the leader of the team and you are one of the side kicks. In order for that to happen, you have to cooperate with each other and do your part which is to follow the game plan. When that doesn’t happen, the coach is not a happy camper and will get on your butt which is what the coaches job is.
You helped win a ring if you actually played in the game. If not, you were lucky to be part of the team. But making a butt of yourself and putting your disagreement about still having to prove yourself on the street doesn’t help either as you have found out. Sometimes it takes time to prove that you are willing to go all out to give your full cooperation in all games. Grumbling does not help because you have lots of competition just waiting to take your place.
As they say in Texas – your actions made you look like an AH and you have to pay the price of “playing stupid.” Believe I would have a health check up to see if the body clock is ticking to the right beat.
You won’t win any more rings on the track you are travelling.
Antonio Brown: Tom Brady ‘Can’t Do S— by Himself’

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, right, talks with Antonio Brown during the first half of a game on Jan. 2, 2022, in East Rutherford, N.J. Brown walked off the field later in the game.
Antonio Brown is still getting things off his chest after his dramatic departure from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the middle of a game. On the Full Send Podcast Friday, Brown made clear that his relationship with Tom Brady isn’t as tight as previously believed—and that it’s mostly centered on the business of football, reports ESPN.
“To me, a friend is someone who’s got your back,” Brown said. “Not everybody in sports is going to be your friend. Tom Brady’s my friend why? Because I’m a good football player. He needs me to play football. People have different meanings of what friendship is.”
Yahoo Sports says the most controversial quote came when Brown was asked who was the best player on the Bucs, and one of the hosts said he was a big
“Brady can’t do s— by himself,” Brown said. “But you guys are going to make it seem like he’s just this heroic guy. Bro, we all humans, bro. We’re all dependent on somebody else to do the job.”
Brown also referred to Brady as the team’s “general manager,” per USA Today, and suggested he had an outsized role in negotiating Brown’s contract.
He complained about having to earn incentive pay instead of having the money guaranteed. “To say someone’s my friend—I’m out here getting ‘prove it’ type contracts where I’m out here, they got me trying to earn a million dollars to make some type of catches,” Brown said of Brady.
“So to say you’re my friend—I shouldn’t be playing on those types of deals when I just came with you and won the Super Bowl.”
In regard to his mid-game departure, Brown recounted his confrontation with coach Bruce Arians.
“The coach said, ‘Get the f— out of here.’ I’m like, ‘Yo, f— you guys too!’ I’m taking off your logo, I’m not wearing this s— no more. I threw it. Now imagine you hear 60,000 people like, ‘Yeah, AB!’ My f—ing adrenaline got so high. I just got too sexy for my clothes but … I started giving the fans what they wanted. They want gloves, they want shirts.” (Brown says that he didn’t quit, but that he got fired because he wouldn’t play on an injured ankle.)
Hate to see talent wasted.
