Douglas MacKinnon worked as a writer in the White House during Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush’s presidential runs. These days MacKinnon writes articles for The Palm Beach Post. One of his recent articles named ‘Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T., but he still makes stupid decisions’ was addressed towards the Buccaneers’ loss against the New Orleans Saints. 

At the start of the article, Douglas praised Brady by writing, “Not only do I believe Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history, but its greatest player. Period.”

MacKinnon said that he understands Brady is a human after all and tends to make “home run” plays.

“But a more logical way to look at that same issue is that precisely because you are without Godwin, Evans, and Fournette, you need to grind out those third-and-2s to get a first down. Then grind out the next 10 yards.… Tom Brady does not have to be the hero on every play.” It is nothing new in the media industry. Whenever a player has one bad showing, everybody jumps on him. People always tend to forget everything they ever did and Judge the player on that one dangerous move.
