First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By John Vaughn, Bajo El Sol ed­i­tor

I re­mem­ber when New Eng­land lost a Su­per Bowl it should have won, Tom Brady’s wife voiced none-too-nice sen­ti­ments against Pa­triot re­ceivers who dropped passes and Gi­ants fans who were rub­bing salt in Brady’s wounds.

For his part, Brady kept quiet. Maybe he was al­ready look­ing ahead, since the Pa­tri­ots have since had three more Su­per­bowl vic­to­ries, that last one a week ago.

I guess Brady thrives off de­trac­tors, who maybe don’t ap­pre­ci­ate his suc­cess or are still ran­kled by De­flate­gate and Spy­gate. I read in an in­ter­view that when he was asked about his crit­ics, he said he loved them back.

Some­where there is a les­son for oth­ers deal­ing with set­backs.

Mean­while, the Car­di­nals will play New Eng­land some­time in the next two years, as Brady tries to make good on his threat to go for an­other Su­per­bowl ring, so I’ll cheer on Ari­zona.

A lot of good that will do.
