Cary Williams picks Tom Brady for a TD, leaves with hamstring injury

AP

Eagles cornerback Cary Williams generated an unusual amount of attention for a preseason game when he said that he didn’t want to take part in joint practices with the Patriots because the Patriots are cheaters.

The practices seemed to serve him pretty well, though, because Williams ended the Patriots’ first drive of Friday night’s game with an interception of Tom Brady that he returned 77 yards for a touchdown. The pass was intended for tight end Steve Maneri, a new addition in New England who was not so much on different pages with Brady as he was in a different book altogether.

Williams was standing right there for the pick and weaved through the Patriots, including an awkward tackle attempt by Brady, for a score that fell within everyone’s definition of the rules.

The Pats had moved the ball crisply until the interception. They used a mix of passes and runs to get them down the field in a hurry, but Brady’s first drive of the preseason came to an especially unhappy ending in Williams’ hands.

The ending wasn’t much better for Williams. He’ll miss the rest of the game with a hamstring injury suffered on the return.

    I thought this might happen. It’s the only way for him to justify his mouth. Good luck with this, as it should solidify his over rated opinion of himself, which should make for interesting theater when the real games begin.

    Hahahahaha! Cary Williams just read Tom Brady like a book!

    Another hater that doesn’t have a clue.

  3. People are really saying Brady sucks over an interception in a pre season game?!? Man oh man, must be tough watching their QB play if that’s the reason.

    Announcers couldn’t be quicker to tell everyone it wasn’t dreamy Tom’s fault.

    LOL that he called out Patriots and then shoved it in their face.


    Really he “shoved it in there face” in a preseason game.

    LOL at the moron that doesn’t know what he watching.

  5. People acting like Williams made thus great play on the ball. Maneri over ran the route and the ball went right to Williams with nobody but Brady in between he and the end zone. Chill…

  6. “He’ll miss the rest of the game with a hamstring injury suffered on the return.”

    “Doesn’t matter had six.”

  7. They had to save face for Brady on the next drive by calling FIVE DEFENSIVE PENALTIES. Good grief.

    He backed up squat. He’s an idiot. He was gifted a pick in a pre-season game covering a tight end that was formerly an offensive tackle, and who signed with the team 5 days ago. The fact he injured himself in the process is hilarious. He is MEDIOCRE….AND he is stupid. That much is obvious. Nothing you can say changes that. The Eagles have a dumb football player on their hands with an attitude problem. That should surface some where along the way.

  9. And now Garoppolo shows how running this system can make almost any QB look like a superstar…

    lol. Brady is going to be terrible this year. He showed his age in the playoffs. Get ready patsies!

    8-10 80 yards a Td and a pick in half a Q. You wish JUMP BALL JOE could do that.

  12. You can really tell that the cheating comments still really get to the Pats and their fans.

    It was dumb of Williams to say it. But it wouldn’t happen if the fans weren’t so darned sensitive about it. But they have only their team to blame for it.

  14. So when Garoppolo finally takes over, and the Pats offense keeps producing at a high level, the idiots will credit the Pats for how good they are at drafting the QB, while the rest of us will credit the Pats for devising an offense that any competent QB can run at a high level (*cough*Cassel).

    Not his fault your idiot coaches converted an offensive lineman to a tightend. I dont understand how a hamstring injury makes you a mediocre player? LOL You’re the idiot obviously and you sound super SALTY!

  16. Can’t blame Pat fans for being a little sensitive.

    It’s been a long run, now, like the Boys, like the Steelers, like Miami, like Chicago, it’s over.

    My guess is decades.

  17. A cacophony of the clueless.

    The receiver was a TE signed about 3 days ago who is a blocking TE not a pass catching one.

    And do you really think that what happens in the preseason games is any real indicator of what will happen in the regular season ? Really ?

    Pats fans are laughing at you people.

  18. Patriots haters should feel honored and privileged to watch the greatest NFL team, greatest coach and greatest QB of this century, winners of more Super Bowls than any other team in the last 20 years…..

    Your team needs to bow down to their superiors from New England…

  19. Patriots are just better than your team in every way.

    Better QB. Better coach. Better owner. Better roster. Better team. Better organization.

    Better fans too.

  20. So the only comeback by the Pats fans is “Hey, we won some Super Bowls a decade ago,” and, “At least Shannon Sharpe likes us?”

    Got to love it when some jobber tries to make excuses as to not give Brady credit, using the “look what Cassel did “.

    What did he do in the same O. They had 7 fewer wins missed the playoffs, didn’t beat a team with a winning record. Cassel had 26 fewer Td and 2000 fewer yards than Brady the year before.

    And “if any competent QB” can run it then why don’t other teams try and do it.

    You’re just another jealous hater that will try and come up with any excuse to not give Brady credit.

  29. So which is it patriots fans? Brady gets picked and its someone elses fault and only pre season excuse comes out, then he scores a TD and now your back to make sure we know how great he is and all of sudden its no longer pre season.

  30. Got to love it when some jobber tries to make excuses as to not give Brady credit, using the “look what Cassel did “.

    Yup. Cassel did an admirable job for sure….but only the uninformed would think the Patriots offense with Cassel belonged on the same field as a Patriots offense with Brady.

    Everyone knows the 2008 Patriots went 11-5… but only the informed know that record includes 1-4 against the AFC playoff field. 3 of those 4 losses were blowouts. 2 of those blowout losses were at home.

    Clearly that 11-5 record they had with Cassel isn’t nearly as impressive as it looks but like I said he did an admirable job filling in for the greatest QB in the game today…

  31. Tom Brady has never engineered a game winning TD drive in a Super Bowl. (all Vinatieri field goals) New England hasn’t won anything since Cheatergate. To say Brady is better than Montana, Bradshaw, or Otto Graham is blasphemy. Browns outplayed this overrated franchise in Foxboro last year, and the refs bailed the Pats out with several mysterious interference calls late. Gave them a home playoff game too…

  32. Christian Fauria you suck as a color guy…it is halftime & I am waiting for someone to throw SOME culpability (Florio) to Brady….and this is an Eagles fan that hates Williams. PS NE, enjoy the suckiness of Wang Chung….good god he blew in Philly

  33. someone elses fault and only pre season excuse comes out, then he scores a TD and now your back to make sure we know how great he is

    ——————-
    All intelligent and informed football fans in existence know that Brady is great.

    Anyone who says otherwise…clearly is not in that category of fan. So why would we try to convince inferior fans? Just not worth the effort…

  34. Hey Cary… you busted your FREAKIN hammy in a fake preseason game to score a fake TD…how does karma taste?

    Ouch my hammmmyyy OWWWW….

  35. Poetic Justice. Hope he’s out for the year. You reap what you sow. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. His injury was the highlight of the game if you’re a Pats fan.

    _____________________

    Well we have averaged 12 wins a season since 2001. More playoffs games than any other team and more wins than any other team.

    You can’t win the super bowl every year. But we are always in the hunt.

  37. People making a deal out of a preseason game are idiots. That includes both Patriots fans and haters. I will reserve my judgement for when the season starts.

  38. raven’s fans the first to troll every thread…you morons have enough to worry about with ray “wife beater” rice.

  39. Funny Pats fans saying “it’s only preseason.”

    Y’all don’t fare much better in the postseason. Keep getting eliminated by the Ravens. Now THAT’S something that should worry you.

  40. Patriot fans – you can’t have it both ways. Either its Brady’s fault, its only preseason, or whatever else you can pull out of your hat.

    Brady hasn’t been the golden boy in a while, his age is showing…

  41. If the pick didn’t matter cause it’s preseason, why are you all posting defensively about it? It obviously mattered to Brady cause he ran Williams down, which he NEVER does in real games. And it obviously mattered to Williams cause he didn’t go down easily from multiple tackle attempts and shoves.

  42. Wait someone got hurt on the eagles. I guess the smoothies a sleep bracelets don’t work. Chip is as fraud.

  43. Half of these comments come from the same person. Insecure much that you feel the need to respond to every “hater” comment.. #12thmanisheretostay #dynastybeforeyoureyes #dynastywithoutvideotapingtheotheeteampractice

  44. This is so funny. Brady gets picked and … nothing. He wakes up, goes to the facility and lives to play another down. Cary Williams was so hell-bent on beating Brady that he pulled a hammy and now has to rehab it.

    Who won that meaningless matchup again? Heh heh

    Both.

  46. Williams could have crushed Brady when he tried to tackle him. Brady could have been out for the season if Williams chose to do that instead of getting the touchdown instead.

    Maybe all of you Pats fans and Brady lovers should thank their lucky stars instead of bashing Williams or the Eagles. All Williams had to do was put a shoulder into Brady instead of twisting to break the tackle and injuring himself in the process.

    Brady had no business putting himself in harms way for a preseason game in the first 4 minutes of play.

    *********************

    It is not unheard of to use a tackle as a tight end, and it is the preseason. It’s is time for experimenting and seeing if guys can demonstrate their potential skill set in something more than a scrimmage. The issue isn’t whether they are using a newly signed player in a new position, but rather if a guy should be thought of as having “talked smack” and “backed it up” considering what actually happened, what the situation actually was, and the fact that “the smack” was childish drivel. Personally, I can do without the smack talking. If he wants to brag about how he got one up on Tom Brady when he out-dueled a converted tackle at tight end who actually had two guys covering him, then I won’t be surprised. He’s already shown a propensity to speak without his brain in gear.

    Having said that, I find it odd he declared to the world he wasn’t going to practice with “cheaters,” (as if he was personally cheated somehow), and after having talked this “smack” as you say, he showed up and chickened out. What about all the tough talk? If he’s such a man’s man, why didn’t he follow through and sit out the practices and tell his coach to stick it where the sun don’t shine? After all, he ain’t practicin’ with no cheaters!

    An injury is not what makes him mediocre, and I have to preface that by saying even the worst NFL player is very talented, but in the grand scheme, even Eagles fans will tell you that if he doesn’t shape up there are guys on his own team that can play ahead of him and if he is not careful he could find himself looking for employment elsewhere, perhaps just a short drive down the 95. That should get you excited.

  48. How does getting a pick means he backed up his talk? Calling Pats cheaters has nothing to do with getting a pick.

    However, Brady’s skills have diminished, but you all will make excuses for him again, another subpar year, will not win their division.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I am a Patriots Fan and yes….you have to give Brady some slack…the throw was there the TE wasn’t…he was still looking down the field but either way it was an interception and it will go down as that. Secondly….you are wrong on your second point….just because Brady had an interception doesn’t make him a second rate QB like yours….Preseason or not.

  50. Do people not know that Williams personally to Belichick, and publicly in the press apologized for his “cheaters” comments? Going as far to say that he has great respect for Belichick and the Pats organization.

    I do doubt you will read that story here as people not associated with Belichick and the Pats saying nice things about Belichick and the Pats rarely gets posted on this site.

  51. Tom Brady has never engineered a game winning TD drive in a Super Bowl. (all Vinatieri field goals)

    Um… maybe because all they needed was the field goal? Ever think of that?

    Not this year IMO. He looked good yesterday but he is still a distance behind Mallett on the depth chart. I see the Pats with 3 QBs on the roster.

  55. Yep, Clearly Tom Brady was unconcerned about throwing the Pick 6 to arch nemesis CARY Williams its only PRE-SEASON! (While watching a BUMBLING CLUTZ of a “Defender” in Brady nearly get STEAM ROLLED trying to do any/everything to stop from getting bested on a national broadcast!
