Tom Brady returns on Monday

NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 21:  (L-R) Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, professional Football player Tom Brady and wife, model Gisele Bundchen attend National Geographic's "Years Of Living Dangerously" new season world premiere at the American Museum of Natural History on September 21, 2016 in New York City.

We’re guessing that most followers of the NFL in New England are already aware of Monday’s big development for the Patriots, but those outside the area may not have been counting the days leading up to Tom Brady’s return quite so fervently.

Brady’s four-game suspension came to an end after the Patriots stumbled to a 16-0 loss to the Bills on Sunday and he’s allowed to rejoin the team at their facility on Monday after a month spent lounging in Italy and attending Michigan football games among other things.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels told WEEI on Monday morning that he’s already spoken to Brady, something he was barred from doing during the suspension, and Brady’s most frequent receiver in recent years is looking forward to getting back to work.

“It’s going to be good,” Julian Edelman said Sunday in comments distributed by the team. “He’s our leader and it’s going to be great to have him out there. We’re going to have to have a great week of preparation to get back in sync, that’s where it all starts from, going out there and having a good week in practice. We had a good practice this week, we just didn’t turn it on, and like I said, you can’t get behind in the count, especially against a team like that who plays really good defense.”

The Patriots also get defensive end Rob Ninkovich back this week and they’ll need to make a couple of roster moves to return them to the 53-man roster, although the presence of roster exemptions means that can wait for a couple of days while everyone gets used to being back in the daily grind.

    What will be really interesting is when Tom starts showing his age (39) like Manning did last year. Then what happens to the Patriots fans pagan god?

    Hi. It’s Monday. Good luck, everyone else.

    Tom, Pats didn’t miss you. NFL didn’t either. You are a liar and cheater. That will follow you forever.

  7. exinsidetrader says: Oct 3, 2016 8:03 AM

    It was a stupid suspension. A fact proven by the NFL’s refusal to release its PSI-study of game balls from that last year.

    Meanwhile, a candidate for President that destroyed 33,000 emails and smashed a dozen blackberries AFTER a subpoena so that they would not be open to Freedom of Information Act requests or examination is on track to be President.

    God bless America.

    Hearing so much hero worship of Bill Belichick on sports radio in New England, this shouldn’t make a difference as, clearly, Bill Belichick can win with anyone. Just look at all of the Super Bowls that Belichick has won without Brady and all of the times Belichick has reached the playoffs without Brady (once in Cleveland). The total disrespect for Tom Brady by so many in New England is a disgrace. I really hope that those in New England who disrespect Tom Brady are in a small but vocal minority. Some Patriots fans either have short and selective memories or are just so stupid and not deserving of what Brady has done for New England fans.

  17. rootpain says: Oct 3, 2016 8:27 AM

    Ok so even though true Patriots fans know for certain that Brady was innocent and have no excuses for the fact that they are not 4-0 at this point in the season, we are glad it’s over and Brady is back. He is our on field leader and has no peer.

    For those unfamiliar with that type of comfort zone we have, imagine for a moment if Goodell, the league parity enforcer by any means required leader, had not been permitted to issue the Brady suspension and the Patriots draft steals. Instead of being at 0-4 at this point, they would probably be at 3-1………oh, wait. I guess there is no way you we-can-only-compete-if-you-give-us-an-unfair-parity-advantage-recipients (aka the other 31 teams that failed to stand up to Goodell) will ever understand what it’s like to get one of our leaders back. Because, simply put, you have no leaders to lose.
    It’s frustrating being a Pats fan sometimes. Not sure how we are going to get over only being 3-1 at this stage of the season.

    A big warm welcome back to you, Tom!!! Am so proud to have you come back to a 3 – 1 standing and give Goodell a big middle finger.

    Also, congratulations to Buffalo on your win. You earned it. Looking forward to meeting you again when we have all our star players back.

  26. bradygirl12 says: Oct 3, 2016 8:59 AM

    I would like to know why Brady, suspended for this ridiculous reason, was not allowed to go anywhere near the team or it’s facilities,but Le’Veon Bell, who was suspended for substance abuse, was allowed to attend team meetings and be still be around the facilities, and his team mates. Doesn’t sound fair to me. I hope that Roger Goodell is happy now that he has exacted his revenge.

    Weird how things work. Goofballs in Indy light the fuse on one of the most absurd scandals in the history of time. Butthurt owners and fan bases pounce on chance to cripple the Pats by handing them four losses to start the season. “Generally aware” becomes a household expression and 20 million dollars in legal costs mutates the goofball’s claims about air pressure into a labor law case. Railroaded, the GOAT accepts his fate. But now..his two backups have been injured and this is looking like a blessing. He returns perfectly healthy and the team is in first place. God loves the Patriots….and what is going on wit the goofballs? Karma baby…karma….

    bradygirl12, The NFL thinks that “being generally aware that someone else might want to do something illegal, but didn’t” is far worse than, for example, being caught for the third time smoking crack.

    Bradygirl12…

    The NFL believes that NFL teams supply support to individual players who have tested positive for recreational drugs. They believe the team environment can rid them of the evils of marijuana. Having the team doctor stoke up the T train is far more helpful.

    Total banishment is the norm for those who test positive for PED’s or for generally being aware of science and producing records the NFL wanted but then didn’t want.

    A hater is someone who never comments on his own team’s posts, neither positive or negative. He’s someone who just spews mindless venom on another team’s thread. All his comments are devoid of logic or reason.

    It’s funny. I never see a slew of Patriots fans posting nonsense about the Steelers. Even after they got blown out in Philadelphia last week, there wasn’t a peep out of Patriots fans.

    Explaining the irony here would be a pointless endeavor.
    For those of us who get it no explanation is necessary. For those who don’t, no explanation is possible.

    Cool story. The Pats are still 3-1, sitting alone atop the AFCE.

    What’s hilarious is all the haters coming to PFT to gloat about one loss. Who cares? No one really expected the Pats to go undefeated this season. Especially with Brady out for the first four games for not telling mother nature to quit affecting those darn footballs. The GOAT is back and the Pats will go on winning. Its pretty much a foregone conclusion.

    ______________________________________

    Yeah, it figures… demanding excellence out of your team would be something a Troll would try and point out as a negative.

    I guess the boos comes from the high expectations based on 20+ Years of NFL DOMINANCE..(Something the poor Trolls know nothing about.)

    Next time Patriot fans, be like Roger’s willfully ignorant dupes in the Loser’s Circle, and make up some unproven crybaby excuses to blame the team’s poor performance on. Maybe even deny 100+ years of proven science, while believing 56+ NFL lies.

    Run along now…back to the kids table.

I don’t blame them, it’s the only chance they have to get by the Pats.

    Cool story. The Pats are still 3-1, sitting alone atop the AFCE.

    What’s hilarious is all the haters coming to PFT to gloat about one loss. Who cares? No one really expected the Pats to go undefeated this season. Especially with Brady out for the first four games for not telling mother nature to quit affecting those darn footballs. The GOAT is back and the Pats will go on winning. Its pretty much a foregone conclusion.

    _________________________________________

    Oh wow….you are totally right. After starting 3-0 with back-up QBs, Pats fans had some confidence going into a game against the Bills. What else did you expect Pats fans to say….we are going to lose this one?

    My original point cannot be argued. The Pats are 3-1 and sit atop of the AFCE alone. The loss yesterday meant nothing. The big bad Bills came in and beat the Pats…..wait for it…..16-0. Not exactly a barn burner there. The GOAT is now back and we’ve all seen how this movie ends.

  98. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Oct 3, 2016 12:17 PM

    What exactly can Brady do that healthy Garoppolo and Brissette can’t do in the Patriots system? Are there specific Brady plays that the other two QBs can’t execute? If anything Garoppolo and Brissette open up the playbook more since they bring mobility and arm strength.

    What a pathetic post. We all know deflategate was an absolute sham. That’s why the NFL had to lie repeatedly, manufacture evidence, and drag this thing out for over a year. But even if you absolutely believe Brady is guilty (again, I seriously question your common sense if you do), why in the world would be be banned for life? That is the most jealous and arrogant comment I have seen in awhile. If he were guilty, its $25K fine and see ya later.

    Oh yea, the reason people like Brady? For starters, he doesn’t sexually assault and take advantage of woman like another QB out there is Pittsburgh.

A 9th grader could have jumped on the bandwagon back then, gone through high school, gone through college, got married, have kids, etc. etc. in that timeframe.

    The Bills won against a rookie 3rd string QB. Let’s wait a second for that to settle in …..

    The fact it was only 16-0 was a miracle. Nothing to be embarrassed about. Any team would be lucky to win 2-3 games from a 16 game season with a 3rd string QB. The booing was for the pi$$ poor showing from the defense as much as it was the offense. Despite only giving up 16 points.

    uh, Brady can read defenses at lightning speed, brings 16 years of film study and league experience to the table, brings several years of chemistry with Gronk and Edelman, brings his TD pass title from last year…shall I go on? And mobility doesn’t get you much if you can’t avoid a hit. Both backup QBs got hurt scrambling around, Brady has only been hurt once in 16 years on a fluke play.
