Doug Gottlieb: “This went from a marriage that probably won’t produce a Super Bowl, to one that is probably going to end in an ugly divorce… There’s a disconnect between play-caller and player, and a feeling that the offense isn’t getting better, and it’s the same-old, same-old against the better teams. They got tons of talent, it’s just the talent doesn’t fit altogether with how Brady wants to play, or how the plays are called… Brady has always been close to Tony Romo, and him and Brady are clearly boys. Romo spent the entire game pointing out the flaws with Bruce Arians’ offense… Clearly Brady had gotten to Romo, probably agrees with him, and here is the smart way to do it instead of a full frontal assault of Bruce Arians in the media… What you heard from Tony Romo yesterday is the ‘F You’ right back at Bruce Arians. You wanna use the media? Here’s how you use the media smartly. 'You wanna talk about all of MY flaws, and getting ‘confused’ at the line of scrimmage, and not throwing the deep ball well? I’ll point out all of YOUR flaws, but I’ll simply do it smartly by going through Tony Romo'. The TV copy is going to get relayed to Bruce Arians… I think this thing is gonna end UGLY.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Doug Gottlieb explain why he thinks Tom Brady and Bruce Arians are steering towards an ‘ugly’ ending for a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has faded considerably during the last month of the season.
Check out the video above as Gottlieb details why he thinks Tony Romo’s critical evaluations of the Bucs’ play-calling during CBS's telecast of the Tampa-Kansas City game was simply Romo acting as the mouthpiece for Brady. Gottlieb says Romo's critiques were actually the direct feelings of Brady, and says Romo was doing a favor for his good friend in an attempt to hit back at Arians, who had publicly lambasted Brady in past weeks.
