Tom Brady not only throws passes, but he catches them too in camp

AP

As it stands now, Tom Brady won’t be throwing any passes in the opener.

But on the first day or training camp, he was catching them.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Brady made a one-handed catch of a Julian Edelman pass in the red zone, whipping the crowd into a frenzy by stretching the ball over the pylon for a touchdown.

Of course, that’s not going to be a staple of the Patriots offense (they tried the Tim Tebow thing already), as having a quarterback such as Brady makes you want to let him throw it.

As far as that, Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo each took plenty of reps, at one point working side-by-side during 11-on-11s.

So maybe at some point, Garoppolo can throw it to Brady.

Or maybe not.

  1. either Garoppolo is Sean Payton or he’s Tony Romo. Odds say he’s likely following in the footsteps of the firstly aforementioned Payton. He’ll be a good coach but not a good QB

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

    —————————

    That’s an original one. It’s not like you’ve posted that one in every article today. Good one! Oh yeah, the answer is 1. You missed the one from last year.

  3. Brady’s caught a pass in a regular season game before.It was thrown by Kevin Faulk.Good for 23 yards.

  4. Doesn’t he have baby hands and can’t grip a football?
    Still can’t wait until people start doing their own psi tests
    when it gets colder.
    I’m not the least bit interested in the NFL psi tests.
    There’s no chance that they will be truthful with those.

    Odds are he had stickem on his hands. Once a cheater always a cheater.

    Sorry, he’s talking about you Jerry Rice.

  6. I’m far, far from a Patriots fan, but the jealously of the fans of other teams on this board is simply amusing. Just go beat them instead of whining!!!!!!!

  7. I’d love to see Brady go out for a pass during a game and get totally decleated. He wouldn’t have the stones. I remember how much crap Jim Everett got for the infamous “phantom sack”. Brady’s had tons of them. But that was a different time…..when QB’s were expected to act like football players and not the prissy primadonnas they are now.

  8. How is it cheating if EVERY QB is doing it, as Aaron Rodgers admitted when he said he played with over-inflated footballs? The so-called ‘gamesmanship’ hasn’t even been proven yet. We have no confession and the Patriot balls when tested at halftime did NOT show they had been tampered with. The truth is that the NFL NEVER cared about PSI inflation until 6 months ago. They considered it ‘gamesmanship’ and they never took it seriously. So it seems to me that 31 teams are allowed to ‘cheat’ and ‘practice gamesmanship’ like Aaron Rodgers, but when the Patriots are involved we must conduct a biased, prejudiced sting investigation to take them down because they’re too good and everyone hates them. The con man and power hungry dictator Roger Goodell to look stupid in a few weeks.

  9. I don’t think the Patriots are THAT desperate at WR. Brady moves like a tree stump.

  10. That’s funny…Sean Payton and company weren’t even allowed to step foot near an NFL facility much less practice…the double standard is almost laughable. Get you some Tom…I hope you do get the injunction…it’ll be good night Irene come December…take your medicine now or later, choice is yours.

    I don’t know. Why don’t you go ask all the Patriots fans here who keep squawking about the Steelers steroid use in the 1970s, you know, back when everybody was doing it? I think they need a little explaining for their own understanding.

  12. He was 27-30 passing, and 2 of the 3 incompletions were drops.

    Obviously he’s very distracted

    Scrambled for gains pretty well last year though. Low Y/A average, but that gets dragged down by the short little second, third, and fourth down sneaks.

  14. What enables/empowers a Patriot hater is the fact that they don’t have a reason to celebrate their own pathetic team.

    If their teams – which they rarely reveal – were as good as the Pats and dominating everyone else, like the Pats do, they’d have reason to do something other than hate the Pats.

    As such all they can do is try to swat mosquitoes while the Pats squash their teams.

    Patriot hating is a pathology. And a self-medicating, anti-intellectual exercise in self-stimulation.

    (And they have no idea what I just said.)

  15. I disagree with the Brady suspension, but I hope Garoppolo does well if given the chance. He seemed like a really promising kid and I was hoping the Cowboys would have drafted him. That’s a lot of pressure for him to be under – best of luck to him!

  16. When they covered the pats on this today. Judy Battista reports Brady “waves like a beauty queen”. I’m not making this up. And God bless her.

    Thanks for the options. I think I’ll take no games and then take a steaming dump on your head.
    Especially with the news out today that the Jets were busted for the same thing Brady was accused of and slapped with a fine…..good luck with that suspension. He will sit 0 games.

  18. But that was a different time…..when QB’s were expected to act like football players and not the prissy primadonnas they are now

    Maybe you want to watch Jim Sorgi play because the top guys got laid out and busted up, but most of us would rather keep our first stringer on the field.

    I wonder sometimes if you guys with the tough talk could take a hit yourselves.
