    Cuz it looks like Tom Brady is having some trouble adjusting to that knee:



    Thursday night Tom Brady [stats] learned this comeback from major knee surgery thing may not be quite as easy as he thought.

    Brady hasn’t looked right all summer, except in drills when he knew no one was coming at him with bad intentions. His arm is fine and his surgically repaired knee may be as well, but there is a psychological side to recovery from major surgery that is a complicating factor.

    IMO, it has nothing to do with the knee.. he has always folded if he gets knocked around.. most qb's do.

    It takes a full season to recover. He won't be himself till 2010

    Very true. Remember when we shut them out and Jason Taylor paid multiple visits to Brady. He folded like a lounge chair and was screaming at everyone on the sideline. The best way to beat the Patsies is to keep Brady uncomfortable. That pretty much goes for any QB. But it's more satisfying to see Brady squirm. :wink2:

    I want to see JT's 99 implanted on Brady's jersey this year.

    Well said.

    We could have a pretty scary pass rush this season. I can't wait to see how we match up against the Pats.

    Brady has always been awful when pressured. He's probably the best QB in the league when he has all day to throw as his line has given him the last.....forever. But the few times he's had serious pressure he has not looked like an elite QB.

    To be honest, Brady is small potatoes right now, our opening 3 games are killers, we are looking at 300 million dollars worth of all pro Qb types and whatever passrush we have has to show up for us to avoid a poor start.

    Don't forget folks, we started out 2-4 last season then made a run, if we want to overtake the Patsies, we cannot start out as poorly.

    (I recall we started out 2-4, I could be wrong)

    I know everyone thinks Brady is sooo good. And maybe he is, but he is going to fall and when he does, it's going to be hard. I think he's a schmuck and is only good because of the other players on the team. Not because he's so great himself. IMO he wouldn't play anything that didn't have a face mask to protect his pretty little face. I really get sick of all the accolades he gets. I'll never understand all the so called love ne gets.

    I don't wish injury on any player, but I do want to see JT & JP make him run screaming like a baby.

    got a feeling the Triad of Terror (Porter, Taylor, Wake) will bring his season to an early end
    there's a lot of bad blood between Miami & the Cheaters, especially where Jason Taylor is concerned

    This is the one thing I've been arguing all summer with my friends. I am not afraid of the Pats. I want to see how Brady reacts when players are flying at his feet and trying to kill him before I pick the division winner.

    With that said, I still expect the Pats to win the division, lol.

    I want him to get hit so many times by Joey and Jason that they are in his dreams and tattoes are on his back. LOL

    What stands out to me is that he was a bit shaken up by a four man rush from the Cincinnati Bengals. I could be wrong here but I can't recall the Bengals have a threatening pass rusher since the year before Justin Smith got his max contract from the San Francisco 49ers. I think even Robert Geathers produced that year but not so much after that. The way I look at it is, if Brady's offensive line is struggling with a four man rush then what does that say about them when we face them and include zone blitzes, etc ? My point is that Brady might have to get over the mental aspect of the injury quickly because he's probably going to take quite a bit of shots. He's still got the pocket presence but when your pocket is collapsing from the interior and exterior, there's not much room to go and you have to take on the hits.

    That's weird, i've heard nothing but positive reports on his performance until that report. Both on the web and on sirius. They said he's moved around well, was tested last week against cincy and took hits and still kept going fine.

    Been throwing all the throws in practice.

    As long as he's not hiding pain, Brady will be brady, but he could show psycological effects if you get to him early and often in a particular game to get him second guessing that "one more hit".

    Intersting developments nonetheless. OUr pass rush better get to him.

    Cincy blitzed him some too. Early in the game, Keith Rivers got to him and slung him to the ground just after he got rid of the ball and it seemed to throw Brady off rhythm for the rest of that series.

    Well, one of the ugly facts of life about Brady specifically and the Patsies in general is A) Brady is a "star" who married a super model, that makes it easy to write and to say positive things about his comeback, even though Carson Palmer suffered the same injury and has not been the same since, the media line is "Brady looks Fab"

    B) The Patsies are in the Northeastern Media market, when they are going well they are on TV screens in homes in much more densely packed areas.

    C) 3 SB's are hard to argue with.

    We got a "trap" schedule given to us by the NFL this season we play the Patsies twice in less than 3 weeks, the first game is when the Patsies are coming off of a bye week when they are like 8-0 coming off of bye weeks under Belicheat.

    That sort of schedule pressure is one of the reason why we cut those players today, Sparano and the Staff just do not have the time to mess around with guys who won't be here when the ball drops in Atlanta in 3 weeks.

    Our passrush is fine, our Db's are not, keep in mind the Panthers were gashing the "D" for nice yardage...without either one of their starting Wr in the game...

    Bowles and DC Pasqualoni have their work cut out for themselves.

    The Panthers did most of their damage against the backups in the secondary and Yeremiah Bell was beat by the tight end a few times. All things considered I think the secondary did a good job.

    Brady folded when JT knocked him around and we won 21-0, then the Giants proved Brady can't play when he doesn't have all day in the pocket when they won the SB and ended the Pats 18-0 season.

    ALL the teams that Play the Pats will be VERY aware of that Giants game and be putting as much pressure on Brady as they can. Us included. I can't wait to see Brady screaming at his own players again on the sideline, and I do NOT think the Pats win the division this season, I think WE do! :up:

    I agree with all of you with the exception that "Brady will be Brady", he will not by everything I've seen so far, this will bring Mr. High Pockets down to where the mortals are.

    No, he is NO Dan Marino or even Bob Griese when it comes to coming back from an injury. They will not win the division and in so far as TB will have to live with that (in his head, for he will blame himself) we may see the end of this so called Super Man. Remember his reaction after missing Moss, A throw he always made before, and then he sits down and explodes. He knows he's in trouble.

    I love it!!!!:lol::lol::up:

    IMO when he fails, it'll be every one else's fault but his. He'll never really take the blame for anything.
