Julian Edelman: Foot feels a day better than yesterday

Getty Images

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is hosting a football camp in Reading, Massachusetts this weekend and reporters turned out on Saturday to ask him a few questions.

Edelman passed on sharing any thoughts about quarterback Tom Brady’s decision to put an end to his legal challenge to his four-game suspension or how he thinks Jimmy Garoppolo will do in his place. Edelman also didn’t say when he’d be back to full action after offseason surgery on the foot he broke last season, but did say that it’s feeling better every day.

“I’m feeling a day better than yesterday, and I’m feeling a second better than the last second,” Edelman said, via the Boston Herald. “Hopefully when that time’s up, that time’s up.”

No one would expect that Edelman and Garoppolo will have the same kind of chemistry that Edelman and Brady have enjoyed since Edelman’s ascension to the top of the wide receiver depth chart, but the more work they can get in during camp and the preseason should boost their results once the regular season arrives.

  1. Julian Edelman is a great Patriot and he’ll do what it takes to help Jimmy get the 4 wins through the unjust suspension of Tom Brady. Edelman is tough and has become an elite slot receiver.
    Yes you may bend over and kiss the rings. It’s so hard to be humble when you’re a Patriot.

  2. Justice was served. The courts saw through the cloud of bs from all the amateur physicists and coffee shop lawyers out of Boston. Hopefully this is the death knell to the Culture of Cheating… pppffftttt, who am I kidding, they’re probably working up 17 different ways to cheat right now, lol.

    2 yard Tom?

    This idea that Tom Brady runs a dink and dunk offense is an illusion.

    If you did some research you would find that NFL Career Yards per Pass Attempt Leaders are as follows:

    #1 Otto Graham 9.0 yards per attempt
    #5 Aaron Rodgers 8.0 yards per attempt
    #23 Cam Newton 7.5 yards per attempt
    #26 Joe Montana 7.5 yards per attempt
    #32 Tom Brady 7.4 yards per attempt

    .1 less than the beloved Joe Montana and only .5 below Aaron Rodgers.

    This just further shows that Brady is the GOAT since he is versatile – kills you with his quick release (receivers can only run so far before he releases in an average of 2.09 seconds) thus creating the illusion that he only throws short passes. Inherently when you have a quick release well then of course it’ll be short.

    But since his adverage yards per attempt is just about as high as Joe Montana shows when he does throw long its looong.

    Don’t be deceived. Just enjoy watching him play while you can. Once he’s retired all you have is youtube replays.

  4. Loved how denver played them last year, they decided early on that everytime Tammy hit edelman or amendola with a two yard slant they would punish them. By the end of the game neither wanted to touch the football. Btw here is a little known fact, in their super bowl win over seattle Tammy completed TWELVE passes BEHIND the line of scrimmage ! Nevermind two yard Tommy he’s actually -3 yard Tammy

    Wow another informed troll… Apparently the bell that is getting rung is located in Edelmans foot….& two yard Tom as you noted has been to 5 consecutive AFC championship games & won 4 Superbowls….. Yeah he is just horrible….it really stinks we as Patriot fans have to put up with that!!!!

    Its a shame there are not more “2-yard tom” QBs in the NFL – maybe they would also have 4 SBs, 3 SB MVPs, every meaningful playoff record, and hold the title as the greatest quarterback of all-time.

    In the words of Michael Strahan “People love to boo Brady but secretly wish they had him as their QB! If people are hating you for success then you’re doing something right!”

    Not really. I do not believe it is as bad as some try to say but Welker, Edleman and others have been turning 3 yard routes into 15 yard gains for a looong time. To say it is all dink and dunk is not true. Brady does throw it deep and the mid-range passes to Gronk work well also.

    You mean all the “Friends of Kraft” briefs?
    You realize the Second Circuit isn’t a bunch of NFL fanboy clowns, right? They do their homework. I’m sure it wasn’t hard to find the thinly veiled connections between Kraft’s money and employees of companies and schools who benefit from his money. He might get away with paying Tom through shadow companies, but he can’t buy the court system.

    “Quick release” refers to the length of time it takes from the initiation of a quarterback’s throwing motion until he releases the football. It’s not how long he holds it in the pocket.

    Typical Patriots fan… No understanding of the game.

  11. Brady led the Pats from a 10 pt deficit to win the Super Bowl, and went down to the last play of the gm in Denver, after a furious comeback, to miss going back because his kicker missed an extra pt earlier in the gm. Both against the best D’s of the last 15 yrs. In the SBowl he went 37/50, 74%, 4 TDs, 101 rating. In Denver he almost pulled it off, despite the fact Denver’s DLine were coming in basically unblocked, and getting pounded.

    But…but…he threw 12 passes behind the LOS(it was more like 8). Haters are a joke.

It was later reported that only one football had a reading below 2 PSI.
    —– You should also remember that none of the talking heads in the news ever mentioned rain as a second factor that contributed to the natural deflation of footballs.

    It would be especially entertaining to see you or anyone else attempt to refute the MIT professor with a PHD that put his reputation online for anyone to critique when he presented his findings and methodology.

  13. Bottom line: If Dorito Dink only had to take a wiz, why didn’t he just say so? Simple. Done.
    He lied.
    Something nefarious was going on, or else just tell the truth, I had to tinkle.
    You can run all the formulas, rent a lab and a wind tunnel and a particle collider, doesn’t matter. People who lie have stuff to hide.
    That’s why the court upheld the suspension and then refused to hear an appeal.
    Smashing his cell phone (despite keeping previous versions) didn’t help either.

    You’re right. He’s much better.

    “Bottom line: If Dorito Dink only had to take a wiz, why didn’t he just say so? ”

    He did. He told Wells that he “had to use the urinal” which is him attempting to politely say “I had to take a wizz.” Then all the hating yahoos started pointing fingers and saying he was “lying” because he urinated in a toilet, not a “urinal”.

    Wow.

  15. I’m gonna visit this site 10 years later when Tammy is long and gong and the Pats will be a below .500 team. It’ll be great to never see Pats again. It was awesome before 2001 which is when 9/11 happened. Before 2001 was great times then Boston airport let those terrorists on the airplanes, stupid boston you not so wicked smaht!

  16. Then all the hating yahoos started pointing fingers and saying he was “lying” because he urinated in a toilet, not a “urinal”.

    ****

    Never once heard anyone call a toilet a urinal. Ever. But yeah, other than that, he was totally honest, lmao.
