Bradie James’ comments in an interview with NBC are making their way on the Internet. The problem is, I cannot really tell what context in which he is speaking. The interview here by NBC’s Tom Curran really doesn’t have a beginning and end that match one another. In fact, it doesn’t even have an end. The entire article doesn’t really have a plot or even a meaning. It’s just there.
But James says something that just makes you wonder what he is talking about. Here is what he said:
“We can’t be the Patriots,” he allows. “The Patriots, they epitomize the whole team concept. Those guys are all about team and that’s it. We’re not them. We are a team that has a bunch of names, a bunch of personalities and a bunch of youth. We are learning what it takes to win at the right time.”
Now, at first, it seems James is basically saying that the Cowboys never can achieve the chemistry that is in New England.
But, in the very net quote, he sort of says the opposite:
“You can have different personalities and have a team,” he says after a moment’s thought. “You do have to have the team concept and a common purpose. But to think it’s going to be done with the same makeup and the same people, that’s not even realistic. That team will recognize that it’s different people and different backgrounds and different motivations involved.”
I have no idea what he is trying to say. Anyone want to take a stab at it?
