BEST OF BST PODCAST: Troy Brown puts an end to the 'cheaters' talk

0:41 - Here we go again. With success come the haters and now players and coaches from the 2004 Eagles team are calling the Patriots cheaters. Troy Brown defends his squad from Super Bowl XXXIX and discusses the hatred towards the Pats with Tom Curran, Kayce Smith and Michael Holley.

6:57 - While the Super Bowl is the biggest news in the NFL right now, moves are being made. The Chiefs traded Alex Smith to the Redskins for a third-round pick and a player to be named later. Michael Holley, Kayce Smith and Troy Brown discuss how this move will shake up the quarterback market this upcoming offseason.

10:37 - Gronk is back! Well, almost. The Patriots tight end told the media at an event that he will play in the Big Game on Sunday. Tom Giles, Tom Curran and Kayce Smith discuss if Gronk has enough time to get back to being game-ready and how limited he will be if he plays.

14:00 - Can’t get enough of Tom vs. Time? The BST crew point out their favorite parts of the third installment of Tom Brady’s documentary series.

Trent Brown calls Patriots QB Tom Brady "one of the coolest guys" he's ever met

Trent Brown calls Patriots QB Tom Brady "one of the coolest guys" he's ever met

Trent Brown has played only one season with Tom Brady, but the offensive tackle clearly has a high opinion of the New England Patriots quarterback.

Brown was a recent guest on ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter's podcast "The Road Less Traveled", where he talked about free agency, his 2018 trade from the San Francisco 49ers to the Patriots, and more. 

The soon-to-be free agent also was asked about Brady, and he paid the 41-year-old quarterback quite a compliment.

“Tom’s really one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met in my life, and that’s no (B.S.) by any stretch of the imagination,” Brown said. “He’s really a cool guy. That’s really the only way I can say it.”

Brown is one of several current and former teammates to praise Brady over the last year or so.

Former Patriots linebacker James Harrison, who played with New England for just a few months last season, called Brady the "ultimate teammate" in January. Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, during an appearance on FOX Sports 1 show "First Things First" earlier this month, called Brady a "great teammate" and "one of the hardest workers I've ever played with."

It's hard to find a negative opinion of Brady from players who've interacted with him on a daily basis. It probably also helps that Brady is the main reason why many of these guys have a Super Bowl ring (or multiple).

Patriots fans will enjoy this video of Tom Brady's top 10 plays in 2018

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took a lot of criticism during the 2018 NFL season, and a good amount of it was warranted, but the 41-year-old veteran got the last laugh when he held the Lombardi Trophy after winning Super Bowl LIII.

Brady became the first player in NFL history to win six Super Bowls when the Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 on Feb. 3 in Atlanta. He didn't play particularly well against the Rams, but he made enough clutch plays with the game on the line in the fourth quarter.

The NFL tweeted a video Monday of Brady's top 10 plays from the 2018 season, including New England's memorable playoff run. Check out it out below:

Brady has been adamant about returning for the 2019 season, when the Patriots will try to become the first team since 2004 to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Given the way Brady played in 2018, there are plenty of reasons to believe next season's top 10 plays video will include several memorable playoff moments.
