Five days before the Super Bowl, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman has made a bold statement regarding his opponent.
Robey-Coleman told reports that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is clearly showing his age and not the same player.
“Yes. Yes. Age has definitely taken a toll. For him to still be doing it, that’s a great compliment for him. But I think that he’s definitely not the same quarterback he was,” Robey-Coleman said. “Movement. Speed. Velocity. Arm strength. He still can sling it, but he’s not slinging it as much. Whatever he was doing—because of his age and all that—he’s not doing as much of that anymore. He’s still doing the same things; he’s just not doing as much of it. And sometimes, it’s not the sharpest. But it still gets done.”
Robey-Coleman also explained in rather explicit detail to Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne on how to beat the Patriots.
“Stick a dagger in them. They’re not a team that you want to play around with. Stick the dagger in them and don’t leave it in them! Take it out!” Robey-Coleman said to Dunne. “And let them leak. Let them leak slow. Put the dagger in them, pull it out, and let them leak slow. Just kill ’em slowly. That’s how you do them.”
Robey-Coleman will be going against the 41-year-old quarterback in five days time in the Super Bowl on Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
