"I think you can. The guy from New England can also throw it, "he said. "You must be able to run the ball in key situations, to overtake the clock at the end of the game, to be able to convert some thirds and a few situations, goal line situations and set up passes. 39; action. . Brady proved it. They had the best action to play in all football.
"Yes, the passing game is really like today with all the RPOs, I think you can go to the end with an excellent pass."
Gruden was later asked about the increase in mobility with the quarterbacks and also mentioned Brady.
"I do not think so [mobility is necessary]"The guy who continues to win the Super Bowls is not going to win the short shuttle championship.This guy is just an amazing football player.He proved that you did not need to put yourself on the slope and to run for the first duels and attack the perimeter There are a lot of ways to get things done, depending on the players and the performance of your team.
