What doesn’t Tom Brady have? He has the rings, the statistics, the money, the looks, the wife, the list goes on and on (no high five skills though). Which doesn’t make it too surprising to see him being voted the ‘most hated’ quarterback, in the entire National Football League. Jealousy is a tricky thing, and I think it reigns supreme in this situation.
In a week that has been filled with analysis of the upcoming AFC Championship game, and Brady missing practice with what apparently was a serious case of “nothing”, it is nice to get a bit of comedy, in what is otherwise a serious week of Pats coverage.
Public Policy Polling released their third annual poll earlier in January, and Brady received the most ‘hate’, among the quarterbacks. 18% of those who voted said that they disliked Brady the most, although it should be pointed out that he also came in tied for second, as most popular quarterback. Peyton Manning was voted most popular, while his team, the Broncos, came out on top in the most popular team category. When asked about his ranking today, Brady responded with, “I have a great life”.
Yes you do Tom, yes you do.
