  • C.J. Anderson reveals Tom Brady's uplifting message after AFC title game

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...afc-title-game

    pretty cool article I thought Id share. Very classy on Bradys part and very inspirational for Cj Anderson!


    From the way they talked about him before the AFC Championship Game to the way they treated him throughout the game, the Broncos defenders clearly aren't members of the Tom Brady fan club. But, on the other side of the ball, Brady's earned at least one admirer.

    Two days after the Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl, running back C.J. Anderson revealed what Brady said to him immediately after the game. According to Anderson's Instagram post, this is what the Patriots quarterback told him (punctuation/spelling added):


    "C.J., way to fight and prove everybody wrong. You belong in this league and you're one hell of a player. I love the way you run. Keep climbing to be great."

    And here's Anderson's original post, which provides more details from the exchange ...

    I know a lot of people hate this man but man when he was pick 199 and was over look he inspired me I was undrafted and over came all the odds so bless what he told me at the end of this game. He said "CJ way to fight and prove everybody wrong you belong in this league and your one hell of a player I love the way you run keep climbing to be great" those words meant so much growing up watching Tom overcame I'm proud to say I'm 3-2 vs his teams and proud to say I get to battle him every year. Thanks Tom for telling me those words they will stick and I know a lot of people don't like you but I have MAD RESPECT. Thanks I see you overcome as others in this league and now it's my turn.

    By now, Brady's rise from a sixth-round pick to a four-time Super Bowl winner has been well documented, but Anderson's story hasn't.


    In 2011 and 2012 at Cal, Anderson averaged 5.7 yards per carry and scored a total of 14 touchdowns from scrimmage. But, for whatever reason, Anderson lost out on carries to the smaller and less productive Isi Sofele. And, when it came time for Anderson to enter the NFL after the 2012 season, he went undrafted before signing with the Broncos as a free agent.

    But Anderson's productivity carried over from Cal to the pros. In 35 career games, he has averaged 4.8 yards per carry and has reached the end zone 15 times (including two receiving touchdowns).

    Now he'll have a shot to win a Super Bowl just an hour or so away from his hometown of Vallejo, California, which would probably qualify as a storybook ending to the season for Anderson.

      I have respect for Brady howeverI don't like the cheating or the accusations made towards him.

      If he's guilty he's guilty but as human beings and sports fans we need to forgive him and move on from that.

      I know I make a lot of comments about him, deflate gate and the crybaby antics but most of that is in retaliation towards Pats fans and to get under their skin when trolling our boards.

        Man, I didn't realize C.J. had such a high ypc average in college. So I guess this "inexplicably play the guy that's worse than Anderson" strategy has been plaguing him since BEFORE he joined the Broncos... interesting

                He's a restricted free agent this offseason.

                  You guys are just realizing this? Brady has been uplifting other players for over 15 years. Even players who try to get under his skin and talk smack about him, all he does is say nothing but great things about other players. Just ask Richard Sherman.

                  That's why I don't get how people would choose Adrian Peterson as a role model over Tom Brady.

                    Not smack but too many accusations towards him is why.

                    However Richard Shermans attitude alone should exclude him from that list.
                    DeMarcus Ware! Now there is a role model.

                      Fans of a different team, read news of another teams player, and show respect towards him.

                      Pats fan enters and makes a condescending comment, about other teams not knowing about their players.

                      Pats fans get befuddled why no one takes them seriously

                      Vicious cycle
                      What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?
                      I don't know and I don't care

                          Very nice. Usually when the Pats lose both BB and Brady give the opposing coach and QB a quick handshake and walk off. Both of them were very classy and stayed to talk to PM and you could see the mad respect between each of them.

                          That's very cool what Brady said to CJ. Also just want to point out the mad respect the Boston sports media is giving us as well. They said that Wade Phillips came up with one of the most brilliant gameplans they've ever seen and the most brilliantly executed on as well. They've been blown away by it for days.

                            Ah, there we go. These boards were getting weird without such a snarky, rude comment from a NE fan. This helps restore the misery that we suffered before the AFCCG.

                            Thanks.

                            I'll be sure not to give a NE player credit again if this is the kind of response we get.

                              You know what, at times I see a really good person in Tom Brady. He's an intelligent guy. He's a great QB. He seems to have a really good side. But most people I know say good things from time to time......even those who are not the best of people. Conversely, sports brings out the best and worst in us sometimes, and I guess some of my dislike for this guy is out of competitive dynamics. I am not 100% sure about the cheating and such, or at least the intent involved, so I can't be totally against the man. And hey, if he was our QB, I'd probably love him. Ha ha, I had him in FF, and he sure got me a lot of points!!!

                              So yes, I am quite sure Tom Brady is a decent person, most of the time. Sometimes however we get influenced by things that we don't know for sure about.....perhaps in terms of his personal life, or for sure with relation to The Pats organization. As I say, the question would be, if he was the Broncos QB and played to the level he has in NE, would we like him? We'd probably love him!!
