Is Tom Brady’s Head Still In the Game?

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has taken some huge hits over the years. You don’t become a star quarterback in the NFL without linebackers taking shots at you. By taking those shots it is highly thinkable that you will have a concussion, if not multiple concussions.

Tom Brady is no exception and the New England Patriot quarterback will be on “CBS Sunday Morning” to talk about it.

Last summer, Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, spoke on “CBS This Morning”, stating:

“He had a concussion last year,”. “He has concussions pretty much every … I mean, we don’t talk about it. He does have concussions. I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for a body to go through that kind of aggressive all the time. That could not be healthy for you.”

Later on, when Brady was asked about his wife’s remarks, he said:
“I don’t want to get into things that happened in my past, certainly my medical history and so forth. I really don’t think that’s anybody’s business, what happened last year. I’m focused on this year and improvement and working on things I need to get better at.”
During the interview that will air on “CBS Sunday Morning” on Sunday (9 a.m. ET), Brady said of concussions,

“I don’t worry about them, no. I mean, I’m not oblivious to them. I understand the risks that come with the physical nature of our game.”

When Brady was asked about the impact that studies on concussions might have on the NFL, Brady said,
“I don’t know what the future is going to look like, and I’m not going to pretend to predict it. I’m going to do everything I can to take care of my body in advance of the hits that I’m going to take on Sunday.”

Asked by O’Donnell if there was any chance 2017 could be his last season, Brady said, “No. No.”
He later added, “I do want to go out on my terms. I do want to go out playing my best.”

Brady was never officially documented with a concussion in 2016.

NFL Talk: Week 11 Picks

Published

on

Patriots

We are finally getting down to the last stretch of the season where teams will finally start to line up where they will make the playoffs and those who will simply tank for the higher pick in the 2018 NFL draft. At this point, most people have teams figured out and know how games should go from here on out. As of now, I got 11-3 correct last week, which puts me at 95-51 for the season.

Tennessee Titans @ Pittsburgh Steelers: Winner – Steelers

At this point in the season, I think the Titans will likely make the wildcard as Jacksonville will run away with the division. The Steelers are pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Their division has the Browns with the worst record in the NFL, and the Bengals and Ravens have fallen off. Even though the game was already played yesterday here was my thoughts before the game:

They are playing the Titans at home and the Steelers defense has been a hack of a surprise for this season. It’s mainly because of how much money was invested into their offense yet their defense has improved substantially from last year. The 2nd best passing defense in the NFL (allowing only 181.8 passing yards per game) and 11th against the run (allowing 102.7 rushing yards per game).

The Titans will have some serious difficulties holding the Steelers down while they are playing at home. Despite the Titans not having a bad team by any stretch (they have the 6th best rushing defense in the NFL), this is the Steelers game to lose and thankfully after what we have seen, that isn’t alot. Steelers won by 40-17 and my prediction was they would score 27-20. (Titans couldn’t even get me that)

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns: Winner – Jaguars

If the Jags somehow throw this game away I will be so done with predicting their games this season. The Browns are a team that needs a massive overhaul and I don’t see it being enough for them to win this game. The Jaguars will win this game 24-21 with Blake Bortles somehow almost throwing the game away. Almost.

Patriots Simply Play In A Different League

New England Patriots

Year after year since Bill Belichick has taken the helm in New England the rest of the NFL has been looking up at the Patriots. You can say one of the big reasons for that is having future hall of famer Tom Brady under center. But when it really comes down to it the real reason for New England’s success is stupidity on behalf of the other teams.

Sunday night’s win was a prime example of another team failing under the spotlight against the Patriots. Denver was a franchise who a few seasons ago won a Super Bowl with Peyton Manning. Now they gambled with Vance Joseph as the head coach, a gamble that looks to be failing. Denver on Sunday night looked ill-prepared, on Special Teams, and throughout every phase of the game.

At what point will opposing teams understand that the Patriots offense will sometimes go into a hurry-up mode? Do they watch film? When will other teams take special teams as seriously as Belichick? It is truly perplexing. Every season there is 4-5 games where the Patriots opponent looks ill-prepared.

Lately, it feels more often of an occurrence. Going into Sunday there was hope for a great game with New England historically being awful in Denver, but the game was so lopsided that it continues with a trend of poor NFL games.

New England’s record now sits at 7-2 with the AFC East all but locked up again with the second place Bills sitting at 5-4. Who will stop them? Maybe the Eagles, but that would be a Super Bowl matchup. And at that point, would Brady lose to a playoff rookie in Carson Wentz? Probably not.

For the foreseeable future, the Patriots will continue to run the NFL.

Patriots Recap: Patriots Beat Out Broncos At Home 41-16

The New England Patriots tonight had a great performance almost all around. Despite several keys mismatches (particularly within the secondary), the Patriots dominated the Broncos throughout the whole game. The most obvious problems lied squarely with the Broncos special teams and offense inability to get touchdowns when they counted most. It was a bad night if you were a Broncos fan. With this loss, the Broncos fall to 3-6 of the season which puts them dead last in the AFC West. Their season at this point, most likely will be lost as this is their fifth straight loss. The victory didn’t come without much help as the Patriots have much to be proud of last night.
