Tom Brady: I feel great, ready to go

The Dolphins won’t have Jay Cutler on Sunday, but the Patriots will have Tom Brady.

Any doubt that might have existed about the Patriots quarterback getting the start due to the Achilles injury that kept him from practicing at all of Wednesday or practicing in full on Thursday were alleviated on Friday.

“I feel great,” Brady said in comments distributed by the team. “Yeah, ready to go, so I’ll be excited for Sunday. It was good just to get a little extra treatment, and I’m feeling great this time of year. So, it’ll be a fun week. Nothing to worry about.”

Brady said he thought the team has recovered most of the energy drained from their extended road trip through Denver, Colorado Springs and Mexico City for their last two games, but added that “the next 48 hours are really important” to finish the preparations and rest for the game against Miami.

    Wow wish my division had Moore in it !

    Patriot fans would much rather face Cutler. Moore is a much better QB – it’s obvious to everyone except Gase.

    I know right? Patriots get off easy not having to face legendary QBs like Drew Stanton and Brett Hundley.

  4. Beware, salty haters, the media are going to get you excited over every little mundane scratch and ache, only to make you cry when it turns out that, wow, he’s OK! – at 40, he’s gonna ache some.

    And he isn’t a CB like Sherman, nor even a highly mobile QB. Brady can just limp into the pocket and so nurse a tendonitis and other injuries – it’s one of the many advantages of a traditional pocket passer (even in a wheelchair he’d probably be better than half the league). But don’t take my word for it, go look at his injury history – he’s played through A LOT, such as notable ankle trouble in both 2011 and 2014 – both years reaching the SB.

    He’ll retire one day, but you’d best ration your salty hopes carefully because this fevered “Brady maybe-injured! or not!” watch is going on for a few years.

  5. Any time Brady gets hit his first reaction is to look for the ref to get a flag. Pats fan or not if you do not agree with that then you are clearly in the dark and tunnel vision.

    Yeah…..it was Andrew Luck dislocating his shoulder opening his mailbox

  7. Patriots cheat….Everyone knows this. They found a system that works, they are also the ONLY team in NFL that has a business relationship with CBS. Stealing Audible signals, to cutting of opponents communication (Which CBS does for them) they just cheat….Where’s Brian Walsh?

  8. Haha.. Only Pats fans think their team is on the up and up and doesn’t cross the line with the rules.
    Bottom line is as long as Brady and BB are together they will be in contention. Once that ends (and it will soon) you will be crying the blues like you used to many years ago.

  9. As as Viking fan/”troll”, the game wouldn’t be the same w/out #12. Love him or hate him, he’s a pros pro & NE wouldn’t be who they are w/out him… Sure BB is a mastermind. But, Brady carried it out. Sorry Bledsoe.

    Yes, he does. Just like Rodgers. Just like Manning used to. Just like every other great QB who has ever played, who knows the rules and is trying to win.

  11. Any time Brady gets hit his first reaction is to look for the ref to get a flag

    Watch the games. Every time he gets hit, the first thing he does is look downfield to see what happened on the play.

  12. Nothing scarier than lolphin fans. I hope Landry doesn’t break out for 38 yards and 2 TDs that he turns into fumbles.

    Sooner or later all things do come to an end. But if two tainted Shula Bowls has sustained dollfans for 45 years how far do you think 6 or more legit rings and the joy of having watched the GOAT play for our team will carry Pats backers? If the Pats don’t win it all again for the rest of our lives we’ve had a run the rest of the league can only dream of in the salary cap era.

    GOAT SYSTEM QB
    ______________________________

    WOAT SYSTEMIC TROLL.
    What’s it like to have to pretend to be a fan of a team you hate on non Pats threads just so people don’t laugh at you for being a dollfan? Haha even the purples know you are a fraud

    GOAT SYSTEM QB
    ___________
    Without a doubt and not even close, Montana #2 GOAT SYSTEM QB, Manning #3 GOAT SYSTEM QB,

  16. I’m depressed….. we may only get to see Brady play for ANOTHER 5 YEARS…..Hopefully he can play even longer!!!!

  17. Clearly, Brady is the GOAT but he has always had to prove himself. Lloyd Carr always spoke highly of Brady but tried to give his job away to Drew Henson. Belichick kept Brady as the fourth QB and kept Garrapollo up to the final trading deadline before he could become a free agent. Goodell and the NFL owners lied and cheated to stop him with trumped up charges. Media favored Manning who Brady beat like a drum. Detractors called him a system QB and pretended Marino was more talented. He has won everywhere and every year. He’s always a threat to win it all. He even beat Father Time. One has the sense that only injuries or weaknesses in the defense can stop him this year. The truth is that Brady is the most underrated player in professional sports history.

    I’ll respect Tony Eason or Drew Bledsoe any day over #12. No asterisks attached to their careers said 23.5 other time zones.

    ——————
    Understandable. Most other teams liked facing other Patriots QBs over Brady.

    I get it. There was a little hope to nurture if Hoyer pkayed. Except there really wasnt. Maybe a difference in the win margin was all that was going to amount to.

  20. Pretty funny, Donkey kick, coming from a franchise that can’t win anything without salary cap violations & forehead growth nobody’s seen since Barry Bonds. If there’s one thing donkey fans understand better than anyone it’s asterisks
