Tom Brady bemoans the “mediocrity” in today’s NFL in a recent interview, criticizing the quality of play, coaching, and player development. Brady believes that the rules have led to bad habits and less violent play. He argues that offensive players should protect themselves, rather than being reliant on defensive players to do so. Brady also expresses concerns about the impact of today’s rules on the game, contrasting it with the era when he was playing. Despite the criticism, some might argue that today’s rules actually provided benefits to quarterbacks like Brady, especially in terms of roughing the passer calls.
