One would think that an opposing player wouldn’t want to make New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady even more motivated to win a particular big game. Yet, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman couldn’t keep his mouth shut this week and provided Brady and the Patriots with some nice Super Bowl 53 bulletin-board material.

When Robey-Coleman was asked about the 41-year-old Brady, in his ninth Super Bowl this week, Robey-Coleman said that: “Age has definitely taken a toll. … I think that he’s definitely not the same quarterback he was. Movement. Speed. Velocity. Arm strength.”
Is Robey-Coleman right? Sure, Brady isn’t physically what he used to be, but why even say that? You know that someone on the Rams got to Robey-Coleman after those comments because the cornerback walked them back, saying “words were definitely taken out of context.” How can words be taken out of context when it was a direct quote?
