Tom Brady didn't want to talk, but no one told Suzy Kolber
Appearing on Colin Cowherd's radio show, ESPN's Suzy Kolber told the back story of her awkward post-game encounter with Tom Brady Monday.
She said Brady told the Patriots' public relations staff that he did not want to do an on-field interview after the game, but that never was communicated to Kolber, who thus approached him for one after the Pats' victory.
Brady eventually answered a question or two, but only after Kolber chased him halfway across the field.
None of which changes my original take: Yo, Tom, ESPN is paying $1.1 billion a year for these games, and 14 million people watched you rally the troops over the Bills. So stand there and talk.
Brady won't have this problem Sunday, because CBS doesn't use sideline reporters. And because Coach Ryan will see to it that the Pats don't emerge victorious.
