Remain calm, all is well, or at least Tom Brady is

Tom Brady AP

The greater New England region can exhale, since Tom Brady is well again.

The Patriots quarterback returned to practice today after taking Wednesday off with an “illness,” but tried to calm fears when he talked to reporters today.

It was nothing. I feel great. It was nothing at all,” Brady said, via Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.

His absence yesterday left all the reps in the hands of backup Ryan Mallett, but there are no concerns about Brady’s availability for Sunday’s game.

Such that there was any concern before.

    I think it’s safe to say if Mallet played this game would have been a tad anti-climactic lol

    Ask any Pats fan if they can name 1 single player that played before the Tom Brady era, EXCEPT FOR DREW BLEDSOE, and you will be very surprised at just how few of them can do it. It’s as if over 50% of the fan base came along only when the team started to see some success with Brady.

    Mrs. Brady is fine, I’m relieved!
    Dying to see Brady VS Manning again!

    Pretty sure most, if not all of us, have been calm. No on thought Brady was going to miss the game. It’s been the media that’s been tripping all over themselves…

    If it weren’t for the Seahawks and Niners game, this would be one of the best NFL match ups in a long time. Sunday is going to be incredible.

    The Patriots have gone through this whole season without a 3rd or practice squad quarterback. There is only one quarterback available that has played somewhat in this year’s offense and has some understanding of the terminology. What would happen if Brady was injured and a backup had to be brought in for Ryan Mallett? Just imagine the absolute media frenzy that would have happened if the Pats had to bring back, gulp…..Tim Tebow.

    Not a Pats fan, but I can remember Steve Grogan, John Hannah and Darryl Stingley.

    Julian Edelman can play quarterback

    Pats have sold out every game since 1994, so to say there were few fans before Brady and Belichick is ludicrous.

    Sam Cunningham is the first pre-Brady player that leaps to mind for me.

    I heard he just ate half a pound of Haribo sugar free gummy bears and had a tummy ache.

    If a small illness is getting this severe of a reaction, God help us the day he announces his retirement. Will all of New England fall into the sea?

    Brady could be missing half his face, a la Gus Fring, and he’d be all “I feel awesome. Its totally nothing, you guys.”

    Vincent Brown.

    Paul? What in the hell are you talking about? Evidently you have me confused with another gentleman. Its ok, you seemed to be confused about a lot of things.

    Hangover? Allowed to sleep in? Both?

    It wouldn’t matter of Brady was hurt, as long as Goodell still let’s him throw flags from the sidelines. If the league office wants a Pats win, they will get a Pats win. However, I think they may want Peyton to win another. It’s hard to see the leagues corruption patterns sometimes.

    these games do sound great, but cant compete with a houston texans vs. oakland raiders game

    “..all is well, or at least Tom Brady is…”

    Yeah, it’s almost as if he already knows the outcome of Sunday’s game…

    I have been a Patriots fan for over 50 years. My father use to take me to games at BU Field. I was at the game at BC when the stands caught on fire. Here are the quarterbacks I remember (excuse the spelling): Babe Parilli, Mike Taliaferro, Joe Kapp, Jim Plunkett, Steve Grogan, Matt Cavanaugh, Tom Owen, Tony Eason, Doug Flutie, Hugh Millen, Scott Zolack, Scott Secules (one of Parcells worst moves), and Matt Cassel.
