The Eagles legend opens up on the Pats, his team's Super Bowl run and his post-NFL calling by Cody Benjamin moments ago • 4 min read Brian Dawkins may not have won a Super Bowl as a player, but he does have a ring. Last year, Dawkins was working in a front-office job with his longtime team, the Philadelphia Eagles, and got to experience their stunning run firsthand. Now, he's back at the site of the Super Bowl, which you can stream here on CBSSports.com for a different reason.On Thursday in a phone call with CBS Sports from Radio Row, Dawkins talked about his role in the team's title run, why he stepped down from his job with the Eagles and his life since. But he also gave his reasoning as to why Tom Brady, who he says "has to be one of the top one or two quarterbacks" of all-time, is so great."I know a lot of that has to stem from having the same head coach and the same philosophy, but there's parts of Tom that Tom did, too -- his ability to take care … [Read more...] about Super Bowl 2019: Brian Dawkins explains why Tom Brady is one of ‘top one or two’ QBs in NFL history

By John Romano Tampa Bay Times Mon., Jan. 28, 2019 Once, it was the perfect argument for bars and schoolyards alike. Did you prefer Unitas or Starr? Montana or Marino? Elway or Manning? Debates about football’s greatest quarterbacks cut across generations and genres. It didn’t matter if you grew up in the 1960s or the ’90s, and it didn’t matter whether you measured your quarterbacks by their number of victories or the accumulation of yards. There were a handful of possible answers, and none of them were wrong. Until now, that is. Until Tom Brady did what an army of defensive co-ordinators could never do. Somehow, the Patriots quarterback has sent history’s best passers to the sidelines. Brady is the greatest quarterback the NFL has ever known, and I’m not sure it’s even close anymore.

At age 41, would going out on top be enough of an impetus for him to retire, even though he’s still playing at an elite level? Brady’s dad said Saturday night that he didn’t much care about whether or not his son would leave like Peyton Manning did years ago, walking off with a championship. That wasn’t his primary concern. “I want him to end it when he wants to end it. I don’t need a storybook. He’s written too many books already,” Tom Sr. said from his Northern California home. “As long as he’s healthy, that’s all I want. I would have been more than content to see him leave four or … [Read more...] about Tom Brady Sr. says Patriots QB ‘happy,’ ‘content’ with his football life
Tom Brady had a weekend break from playing football, but the Patriots quarterback still watched plenty of it. The team’s first-round playoff bye ensured that Brady was a spectator during the NFL’s wild-card round. “It was good to sit back and watch a little bit and kind of get ready for what’s ahead for us,” said Brady during his Monday morning appearance on WEEI’s “Mut & Callahan.” The Patriots will host the Chargers on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. Brady saw Los Angeles’ unique defensive setup (playing many defensive backs against the Ravens) as a creative necessity. “They’ve had some injuries at linebacker, so I think that really forced – not forced – but I think they’d prefer to have some of their bigger safeties at the linebacker position,” Brady explained. Brady vs. Rivers On the topic of Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, Brady has respect for the fellow veteran. “I don’t know … [Read more...] about Tom Brady talked Philip Rivers’s toughness, all-night film study, and Kliff Kingsbury in WEEI interview
