Tom Brady: My hand feels perfect

Getty Images

The Patriots had a miserable first half offensively on Sunday and trailed the Dolphins 17-3 at the half after gaining just 25 yards.

Making matters worse was apparent swelling on quarterback Tom Brady’s right hand, which had been the source of interest since he was seen with a couple of fingers taped together on Saturday. Brady looked much better as the Patriots rolled up 24 points in the second half to win the game 27-17 and he said after the game that his hand felt “perfect” and “awesome” while questioning whether there was any swelling at all.

“I didn’t know anyone knows what the back of my right hand looks like, but it looks fine to me and it feels good,” Brady said in comments distributed by the team, “I’ll be out there next week; you don’t have to worry about that.”

It has been a grind for the Patriots offensively all season, but they’re still 6-2 and have to be encouraged by what their defense is doing on a weekly basis. They’ve got a healthy lead over the Dolphins and Bills with the Jets looking like they’re on their way to a loss in Cincinnati, which is a scenario that gives them some time to work out the kinks without risking their standing in the AFC East.

    Whatever was wrong with his hand can apparently be cured by a fourth quarter backhanding of the Dolphins.

    The Dolphins defense did yeoman’s work in both the run and pass game .

    He should have said he slammed his hand in a door on purpose because it helps him grip the ball better with a fatter hand. 😉

    fatsolio says: Cool so we now have the excuse if Brady keeps sucking it up today. Always has to be an excuse and can’t ever be that he is struggling.

    Famous last words from fatoslio when the Pats were down 17-3

    logicalvoice might want to give it up… the Jets haven’t even BEEN to a Super Bowl since before a man walked on the moon. They remain tied with the Houston Oilers for AFC East titles.

    I guess they must have done something incredibly bad to invite that type of karma.

    Logicalvoices…how many TD’s has your vaunted skins D given up in the last 5 minutes ?

    Patriots did not deserve to win that game. Thanks refs!

    His hand may feel fine, but that middle finger looks broken or recenly dislocated, jammed.
    Get better quick, Tom.

    Hey Logicalvoice! I am thoroughly enjoying watching the Broncos defense dismantle RGIII!! Great game!

    The pathetic Patriot trolls are at it again. Why don’t you guys get a life? You’re just…sad.

    Yah, and the Bengals didn’t deserve to beat the Jets by about six TD’s!

    Spygate happened but did the Phins winning a Super Bowl actually happen? If it did it was certainly before the internet, not long after the television and certainly before vaphinphan was conceived in that back alley. Poor Dan. All those records and no ring. At least he went out on a high note, 62-7 courtesy of the vaunted Jaguars. The Phins have been the 3rd most successful team in their state the last 15 years. The masters of irrelevancy.

    Here’s how many Superbowls the Patriots have won since Spygate :


    Yep… and the sky is blue. 5 of 32 teams have won since Spygate. Giants 2, Steelers 1, Saints 1, Packers 1, Ravens 1 and everyone else zero. The Patriots also haven’t won since 2004, which is 3 years before spygate. All it shows is that it’s hard to win the Super Bowl.

    This room is amazing. How can patriot haters still be talking about spyware and calling bb belicheat? You all are jealous and need some new material!

    Wouldn’t the person who would know most how Brady’s hand feels be Giselle?? 🙂

    Brady’s hand could morph into a crab claw and it wouldn’t make any difference when the refs are calling ridiculous penalties on the Dolphin secondary time and again.

    It’s as if the league has confused every Patriot opponent with the Al Davis Raiders.

    Another stinker of a performance by Tom Brady this week. 115 Yds 1 TD 1 INT 1 FUM.
    Halfway through the season Brady is putting up numbers that Tim Tebow wouldn’t be happy with. How is this team 6-2?
