CBS analyst Steve Tasker told us Tom Brady eats healthy and trains hard in most useless sideline report ever

At this point, seemingly everybody has been briefed on Tom Brady’s stringent lifestyle and training regiment. There are TB12-approved snack packs, electrolytes, resistence bans, pajamas and one massive coffee table book. Brady even wore a shirt that reads “pliability” at the podium earlier this season. 

But somehow, CBS analyst Steve Tasker has missed it all.

During the second quarter of the cliche-ridden CBS telecast of Patriots-Dolphins –– Rich Gannon likes guys who give “110 percent” –– Tasker gave perhaps the most useless sideline report of all-time. He says he was doing some reading about Brady prior to the game, and discovered the Patriots’ quarterback eats really healthy food and wants to play well into his 40s. 

Who knew?

“In preparation for this game, I read some articles about Tom Brady, obviously,” Tasker said. “I read one about his repertoire. It’s 12 months per year. He’s got a competitive fire that’s second to none. He just never lets up. The article discussed how long he could extend his career, and how long his clean lifestyle could keep him at the highest level. I (thought), ‘Yeah, it’s going to be interesting to see how that happens.” Then I read, the article was written in 2014. The guy has not let up.”

Someone should tell Tasker he didn’t have to go all the way back to 2014 to find out information about Brady. Maybe next he’ll tell us that Bill Belichick is grouchy at press conferences.
