"Sore shoulder" for Brady

Quarterback Tom Brady’s close call, which came late in the first half of Friday night’s game when Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth knocked Brady down and landed on him, initially appeared to be just that — a close call.

But there since has been considerable hand-writing regarding the condition of Brady’s right shoulder.  You know, the one he uses to throw the ball.

The official word from the team is that Brady has a “sore shoulder.”

Several of you have pointed out that this means Brady will be listed as “probable (shoulder)” for every game for the rest of his career.

    Brady will be listed as “probable (gerbil)” for every game for the rest of his career.

  2. BillsFan27 says: Aug 28, 2009 11:13 PM

    Maybe Kyle Orton can show him how to throw left-handed…

    aka brady is done for many preseasons to come

  4. nflqb says: Aug 28, 2009 11:20 PM

    you never heard stuff like this before the superbowl, since then the line collapes and brady is gone for the yr, last season the line gives up 46 sacks, preaseason brady has been sacked 3 times in 4qts of play.
    that line has become a major problem, brady will be back to his 27 td and 14 ints type of season.

  5. 8man says: Aug 28, 2009 11:25 PM

    Since I’m in favor of only two pre-season games, exhibiton games, or whatever you want to call these travestys, this “injury” never should have happened in a game that did not count in the standings.
    Well, it looks as if the Pats offensive line and backs are having a little trouble protecting Tom Terrific. They are only outclassed by that Pats defense. Me, my neighbor and 9 other guys could move the ball for positive yards against them!
    By the way, for those of you that hold tickets to the Pats next game, camp out where Brady lives, you’ll have a better chance of seeing him.

  6. Alpheratz says: Aug 28, 2009 11:27 PM

    Knowing Bill, you probably won’t see Brady on the report this year.
    Gotta go against type.

  7. Insomniac says: Aug 28, 2009 11:28 PM

    Pats are messing with the media. There’s no way the condition of his shoulder was unknown after halftime. They sent him out and pulled him on purpose.
    Whether he is really hurt or not is another story.

  8. as big as a hat says: Aug 29, 2009 12:04 AM

    But there since has been considerable hand-writing…
    Hand-writing? Are writers not using their laptops to report on this story? Or do we just need an interpreter?

  9. CH³NO² says: Aug 29, 2009 12:13 AM

    Albert weighs like 345lbs……….I’m sure his shoulder (and some other body parts) are sore!

  10. SkinsTradition says: Aug 29, 2009 12:33 AM

    he got flattened by haynesworth. he’s lucky it wasn’t a real game.

  11. superius says: Aug 29, 2009 12:40 AM

    It’s going to be a long night for haters as they hope and pray that Brady is done. After all there is no way their teams stand much of a chance. But when it comes out that Brady is just fine (and when he torches your team if they are unfortunate enough to have to play the Pats this year) don’t worry… You’ll still be able to talk about video taping.
    It’s all you’ll have left after this season.

  12. careygranite says: Aug 29, 2009 12:51 AM

    seems like gerbils are a lot like humans. when you’re the top gerbil all the little gerbils try to tear you down

  13. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Aug 29, 2009 1:11 AM

    I love the gay roughing the passer call when Brennan was sacked with a foot tackle. Too little, too f-ing late a-holes. Try calling a penalty when the league MVP gets taken down by a cheap shot.

  14. Ron In Charlotte says: Aug 29, 2009 1:18 AM

    superius,
    Please…No matter about Brady’s shoulder, that line ain’t the same. He may get killed again this year.
    Hey by the way, what NFL team is known for it’s perfect season? No not regular season, a REAL Perfect Season. Heh heh.

  15. gravyrobber says: Aug 29, 2009 1:20 AM

    lol@superius, do you watch football? Let’s see, crummy running game (check), aging + mediocre o-line (check), worst secondary in afc east (check). Does that sound like a superbowl recipe? Brady’s gonna need 60td’s, a healthy moss and welker for the pats to even sniff the playoffs. And as 2007 should’ve taught you, you don’t go all the way when all you have is a passing game. Start paying attention.

    You assclowns talked the same crap before the Super Bowl. 18-1. Good luck with that paper mache O line. Thank God you don’t play in the NFC East or Brady would be on a respirator. BTW – who knocked out Brady last year? That’s right, the team with the WORST pass rush in the NFL. The “genius” really needs to start drafting some quality O lineman or the supermodel will end up spoon feeding her husband.

  17. drummer1279 says: Aug 29, 2009 2:26 AM

    Besides the cheating (video taping), they also have the favorable call’s (Tuck Rule, for instance). But the fact that it’s been five years since they won a Super Bowl, is the telling story. The media hype’s them up as though they have won the Super Bowl every year, seriously, they get more hype than any of the defending Super Bowl teams.
    It’s pathetic, they have a great run two years ago on a weak schedule. They win a few games against good teams, but for the most part, they had a weak schedule. They should have lost to Baltimore, again a bad call goes their way. That’s been the story of the Patriot’s. Lucky breaks, and bad call’s have been a life line of them for years. (If you don’t believe me, look at the “Tuck Rule” game, when this all started, the “Tuck Rule” was the most obvious mistake, but there were at least 2-3 more play’s in that game that were BS call’s. All in favor of the Patriots.)
    I don’t doubt they they are a good team, but they get more break’s than any team in the league. A slap on the wrist for cheating, because they are the new America’s team. I don’t think it’s a coincidence, that they rose to promidence just after 9/11. They were given more breaks that any other team.

  18. Footballguru says: Aug 29, 2009 4:24 AM

    superius, You are another delusional Pats fan. They will be home this year while the Colts are still playing. I guess they have both ignorant sports fans and lame liberals up there… a funny combination.
    The O line won’t be able to protect him. Now run along to you room .

    I hope that you anti-Pats folks can think better than you can spell and punctuate. It doesn’t seem to be the case, however.
    @Drummer1279…Wow, man! Isn’t there some sort of remedial English website that you could be spending your time at?
    You think the Pats, “Rose to promidence after 9/11″.
    Are you called, “Drummer1279″, because your mom beat the shit out of your flat head with sticks in December of 1979? Perhaps you could change your name to, “Conspiracy Retard”.

    League MVP?? Last I heard, Peyton Manning was the 2008 NFL MVP. Brady was just the League MIA.
    This year, DOA.

    The Twilight Zone
    – The NE Patriots Fans Parallel Bizarro Universe episode
    – At the start of the 2007 NFL season, every single team was caught and fined for cheating, all except for America’s darlings, the NE Patriots. — The Patriots win the love and admiration of the entire nation with their never-ending displays of class, honor, dignity & good sportsmanship. — Bill Belichick is awarded simultaneous Nobel Prizes for physics, literature and peace. — The Patriots go on to enjoy an undefeated season, handily beating the NY Giants in SB XLII. — All of America turns out to worship and cheer the conquering heroes, and a National Holiday is declared in their honor. — The Washington Monument is torn down to make room for the “Greatest Football Team of All Time” Monolith. America weeps with pride. — We now return you to your regular broadcast.
    Meanwhile, in the real world, …somewhere in Nicaraugua, some poor kid is wearing a new t-shirt and wondering “what’s does 19-0 mean, and who the f*ck are the New England Patriots?”

    The teams are not obligated to make their stars play as far as I know. He didn’t get hurt because of a meaningless game, he got hurt because the Pats had him in there playing.

    Awww did the poor little haters get upset because of the cold hard face of reality? I know, I know, it really is mean of me to crush your dreams on your big night. I mean you guys have been hoping for a Brady injury and here it might be.
    How insensitive. If only I had my camera.

  27. keredcross says: Aug 29, 2009 9:42 AM

    I think Brady is just fine. After the hit, he was warming up on the sideline and throwing the ball. I’m sure it does hurt some but I don’t think its broken or anything like that. I thought the O-line played good last night. This may have to do with the fact that Brady has amazing pocket presence.

    ORLY? I wasn’t aware that Peyton Manning played in this game….

  29. Start Colt Brennan says: Aug 29, 2009 10:49 AM

    First of all the Dolphins are the only team to have a Perfect season…remember the Pats got destroyed in the superbowl.
    Second of all it wasn’t a late hit on your manicure/pendicure getting metrosexual QB, and as far as the roughing the passer penalty on Colt Brennan…thats a rule in the nfl you cant take out a quaterbacks legs, however you can fall on one as he is getting rid of the ball.
    Brady will get his calls this year don’t worry..Espn wont survive without tom brady again this year. Who else’s ass will their lips be completely fixed too

  30. dcgioia says: Aug 29, 2009 11:02 AM

    Drummer…you think they had a great run in 2007 due to a weak schedule?? The Pats played the Colts, the Cowboys, the Chargers, the Steelers, the Redskins, and the Giants. Every one of those teams went to the playoffs that year…so we played half of the playoff teams in the regular season and didn’t lose even 1 of those games. Yeah, real weak schedule.
    As for the tuck rule, that play has been reviewed by NFL officials for years and they always come to the same conclusion…it was the right call.
    And the “cheating”…a slap on the wrist?? We lost a 1st round pick and our head coach was fined a half a million dollars…what did you want them to do? Throw the Pats out of the league? The fact is that they admit they were in the wrong, but they were never sneaky about it. They had a guy videotaping out in the open wearing Patriots apparel. The tapes were never used during the games, and the whole thing got blown up. Every team has someone responsible for watching the play calls to see if they notice any patterns. The Patriots just decided to videotape this so they could study it on film rather than by hearing someone talk about it. They screwed up, but calling it cheating and that it was responsible for our 3 championships is a bit much…especially after we went 16-0 in the regular season while being the most scrutinized team in the league.
    I get it, you all are tired of the Pats being the top dogs, I would be too, but you’re just gonna have to live with it. Tom’s back, Randy’s ridiculous, and when Wes gets out there too, it’s gonna be an offensive clinic. You all talk about the line being piss poor…are you serious?? They have 2 pro-bowlers on their O-line. Tom got injured last year on a play where a RB (Sammy Morris) was his blocker…that has nothing to do with the line. And our line didn’t stop Tom from lighting up the defense with Randy Moss deep last night…against arguably the best defense in the league.
    All you Pats haters need to do some research before you start talking crap next time. The “cheaters” argument is getting kinda old.

    I hear that Belichick was born in Poland, and isn’t really, legally, you know, a National Football League coach. *Some people* say his birth certificate is fake.

  32. dcgioia says: Aug 29, 2009 11:08 AM

    Ummm…football junkie…BPIAA was talking about the game that Brady went down. Tom Brady got injured in 2008. At the time of the injury, HE was the MVP. Keep trying though, maybe next time you can make a valid argument.

  33. Merlin6593 says: Aug 29, 2009 12:23 PM

    I love it…for so many years as a Patriot fan I suffered through getting our ass kicked…let the hater keep hating for years to come.

  34. Alpheratz says: Aug 29, 2009 12:24 PM

    Pats got “destroyed” in the Super Bowl?
    I take it you didn’t actually get to see that game?

  35. Merlin6593 says: Aug 29, 2009 1:08 PM

    17 to 14 is destroyed…I have seen much worse

  36. redsquare says: Aug 29, 2009 1:54 PM

    I’m a bit surprised they kept Brady in the game that long. If they’d followed the usual route and pulled him earlier, this hit wouldn’t have happened. It seemed like they were on a good run and were excited, but well before the hit, things were starting to slow down for their offense and it seems that they missed the writing on the wall.
    Man oh man, did their backup QB look bad. Painfully so. Paging Tyler Thigpen?
    Good game overall for the Redskins, though. They looked so lost in the middle of the first half. Kudos to them for sticking it out and pulling it back together. Just when (as a Cowboys fan) I was starting to think there’d be one weak team in the NFC East this year…not so. (Though I’m still predicting an Eagles implosion.)

    The Warren Commission still holds to the “lone gunman” theory too. What was your point again?

  38. patsSB44champs says: Aug 29, 2009 2:08 PM

    The worst fear of every Pats fan is that Brady will go down again… having said that, it did not look serious. If it was, he would not have been helped up by his RIGHT arm (watch the replay), he would not have been able to wind his arm on the bench, he would not have come out for the second half, and the team doctor would not have returned to the sidelines in the second half if Brady were badly hurt.
    It was purely precautionary. He’s not going to play in the 4th preseason game (nobody does), so he will have more than two weeks to heal a stinger. Then he will go out on September 14 and light up the Bills defense, and all will be forgotten.
    Brady will be fine.

  39. patsfanreport.com says: Aug 29, 2009 2:29 PM

    Somnambulus about Bill’s Birth Certificate, some say the same about Obama so if it’s OK for the president it’s OK for an NFL coach.
    Brady is always listed with a sore shoulder, what else is new.

  40. db3300 says: Aug 29, 2009 3:21 PM

    Brady is looking more and more like the system QB most of us have believed he is.

  41. Heresy37 says: Aug 29, 2009 11:28 PM

    All you Hatriots with your Tuck Rule complaints & conspiracy theories are sadly ignorant.
    The true mistake made by Walt Coleman on that play was Colemans failure to flag Charles Woodson for illegally hitting Brady in the right side of the face before knocking the ball loose,a penalty which would have not only automatically negated the tuck/fumble issue, but served as poetic justice for the Sugar Bear Hamilton penalty-little NFL history for the ignorami in here, bak in 1976 afc div playoff game, Pats DL Hamilton was flagged for hitting Stabler in the head, resurrecting the Raiders failed last minute drive, which enabled them to end the Pats season(by 3 pts, same margin NE beat Raiders by via tuck) and ultimately(2 games later) win their 1st SB.
    As far as the spying is concerned, the punishment was actually quite harsh, and the crime was as overblown by the fans/media as NEs aura of invincibility ultimately proved to be.
    Like NE or not, you should still use your brain…If what NE was getting outta their cameras was such a critical advantage, and/or if their opponents werent aware of and doing the same, why didnt the Pats win the SB under BB during the 2000-01,02-03, 05-06 or 06-07 seasons?
    Also, wouldnt they be more discreet in filming the opposing sideline if such practices were illegally providing them with critical, absolute foresight?
    If Belichick/Brady depended upon what the haters insist those cameras provided, with or without Randy Moss, theres no way the Pats win 18 games in a row while setting all those records.
