Fired-up Brady on mission as Patriots face Titans test

Los Angeles: The Tennessee Titans can expect to feel the full wrath of an aggrieved Tom Brady and the New England Patriots as the defending Super Bowl champions launch their postseason campaign on Saturday.

The Patriots have been riled this week following a bombshell ESPN report which painted a picture of internal strife and a terminal rift between Brady, coach Bill Belichick and billionaire owner Robert Kraft.

The three pillars of the Patriots dynasty, who have delivered five Super Bowl titles since 2002, have pushed back hard against the revelations, which included a claim that Brady had pushed for understudy Jimmy Garoppolo to be traded against Belichick’s wishes.

Brady, who is seeking to gild his legacy as the greatest quarterback the sport has seen with a sixth Super Bowl, was incensed by the suggestion that he had engineered Garoppolo’s departure or had appeared “liberated” by the trade. “That’s just such a poor characterization of anything,” Brady said this week.

“In 18 years, I’ve never celebrated when someone has been traded, been cut,” the 40-year-old added, describing the report as “completely wrong.”
