Stanzi's agent, Jack Bechta, connected him with Martinez because of how highly Brady had spoken of the coach. For two weekends after the college season, Stanzi lived with Tom Martinez and his wife, ate meals in their home, and studied DVDs of Brady's mechanical drills. He heard all his strident sayings about the position. "The longer the stride, the more time you waste,'' Martinez said.
At one point, Martinez told Stanzi: "I'm not always going to be with you. You've got to remember this so you can correct yourself when things go wrong. You've got to be able to coach yourself.''

Monday is the 95th day that pro football has been locked out by the NFL.
Monday is also 88 days away from what is supposed to be the opening weekend of the 2011 NFL season.
Hopefully, Monday will also be the day when we continue to hear the labor situation is moving in the right direction and more folks around the league are talking about a full season, with a complete training camp. Optimism is high.
We can only hope.
