Tom Brady insists elbow is not an issue

There are obviously things wrong with the Patriots’ offense.

Quarterback Tom Brady insists that his elbow is not one of those things.

During his weekly WEEI interview, Brady said that he is physically fine, despite being on the injury report lately and showing signs that he is something less than completely well.

“It’s feeling good. I don’t have any problems,” Brady said, via Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “I have no injuries. I’ve said it, like, a lot. I feel good. There’s no injury, no nothing. I wish I would’ve played better, and that’s about it.”

Of course, he’s been spotted shaking his arm on the sidelines as if he was in some discomfort, and with ice bags on his arm, and with a 60.8 completion percentage this year which is unlike him.

“It’s football. You get hit,” he said. “I’ve gotten hit a few times on the elbow and it’s part of football. I’m sure basically every player in the league has ice bags after games and feeling different things. It’s just part of the sport. I’m feeling good. I’m feeling really good.”

That’s a good thing, because they have a short week to prepare for Saturday’s game against the Titans.

  1. I’m sure it’s bothering him but knowing how Bill rolls if there was a serious problem with his elbow then we would see Jarrett Stidham on Saturday.

  2. The offseason will be huge in NE this year. 60.8 and turning 43 next season is getting dangerously close to headset and clipboard territory ala Testaverde style.

  3. Coach: “I hear that you’re having some issues with your elbow.”

    QB: “Yeah, it’s still not 100%.”

    Coach: “Oh? Well okay, we’ll give the backup some first team reps.”

    QB: “O miracle of miracles!!! I’m healed!!!”

  4. Get yer head right Tom.

    You’ve selfishly skipped OTAs 2 years in a row and Garoppolo did not.

    And, here we are with pick 6s and being outplayed at home, replete with stalled drives, even on short fields.

    Put up our shut up. Talk is cheap.

  5. …..you will get no excuses from The Greatest Quarterback in NFL History.

    I am sure He is aware “The Team” has underachieved this year, and that could be attributed to many factors.

    I for one will always give The GOAT some latitude…….

    Get off this stupid angle. So you want Brady to be more tired than he already is by going to the OTAs. Who cares about Garoppolo. He is not on the Patriots.

  7. LOL @ at the guy who thinks Tom Brady has to “put up or shut up” as if he needs to prove anything to anybody, least of all to some entitled “fan” who’s always riding him like he’s the team cancer, even when they’re winning Super Bowls (which, by the way, they just did last year).

    Last year Brady “skipped OTAs” too pal. You know what Brady was doing? Game winning drives on the way to another Super Bowl ring. You know what your precious Jimmy G was doing? Sitting at home.

    People forget the Patriots lost TO MIAMI and TO PITTSBURGH in DECEMBER to lose their first overall seed last year. People said they would NEVER win on the road in Arrowhead. What did they do in Arrowhead last year? Win and move on to win the Super Bowl. Let’s not act like they haven’t fallen short before with stakes on the line and still found ways to persevere.

    Change your schtick.

    Your boy Myers was benched for illegal formation in Q4. Sanu still runs wrong routes.

    Some of these guys still don’t get it in week 17. Nothing to do with OTAs.

    He also probably thinks Brady should have been throwing to Sanu somehow in OTAs too.

    Would be nice to see the Defense and Offense play great this weekend. Have to be optimistic. Looking forward to a Saturday night game.

  10. I cannot believe the attitude of some Patriots fans. Is Brady declining, yes I am sure he is. Is this seasons decline all on him. Absolutely not. The Offensive line has been just that, offensive. His receiver corps is a joke. He has no tight end on the entire roster except by title designation. The running game is missing because of the line play and loss of James Develin.

    I want him back next season and you know what I understand there is very little sentiment in New England but I believe Brady has earned by far the right to go out when he is ready and personally I still think he belongs as the QB of the Patriots.

  11. @patsarticlemustpost

    No doubt he does. He’s the same guy who dogs Brady for “ignoring” Harry “all season”. The same kid who spent most of the season on IR.

    Pretty funny considering the source.
    Jimmy G- what back up QB misses anything? You won’t be a back up for long if you do.
    Lets see- OTA’s:
    Don’t mater at all to Veterans.
    Sanu not their
    Josh Gordon not there
    Antonio Brown not there
    Sony Michel- not there/recovering from knee scoping
    Jacoby Meyers- wasn’t on the team/roster- no reason to believe he would be.
    Watson- not on team.
    N. Harry- hamstring
    I guess Tom needs to learn how to throw to Edelman and White?

    REAL Pats fans remember the 2013 Kembril Thompkins/A. Dobson year and people said Brady was done then too. Bill has completely messed up the offensive roster for 2 years now.

    Compare Brady’s and Rodgers numbers- pretty similar. Brady has 4 more interceptions (8) than Rodgers, but Rodgers has 4 lost fumbles to Brady’s 1, and touchdowns are similar. Guess Rodgers is done too?

    Then why are you throwing so many balls over the heads of wide open guys????

    _______________

    Doing a Terry Bradshaw impersonation.
    Better send the WRs to ballet class.

  14. I bought a used car about 2 months ago.
    It had a Tom Brady bumper sticker on it.
    After owning it for a month, I scraped the sticker off.
    Now the car not only runs better, it passes better, too.

  15. No matter what Tom Terrific thinks ,unless he learns how to punt,He is not playing as long as Ray Guy

  16. Doesn’t this guy ever weary of making himself the center of attention? Diva, your time is up. It’s not all about you.

    Just so you know, Tom Brady has already played longer than Ray Guy. Guy played 14 seasons, Brady has played 20. Try again.

  18. “During his weekly WEEI interview, Brady said that he is physically fine.”

    How is this even remotely making himself the center of attention? You should really concentrate in 2020 to not make Brady and the Pats the center of your attention. It’s not all about them. It’s a big World out there buddy.

  19. Gotta admit… some of the things I’ve been reading from so called Patriots “fans” online and on social media over the last few days are pretty disappointing…Completely turning on a guy who has brought us again and again to the pinnacle of success over the last two decades like a bunch of fair weather fans. 😬

    They don’t speak for me or the majority of Patriots fans.

  20. I can’t stand the Patriots fans that are in denial of Brady on the decline. No matter what happens, why did they make the super bowl last year. Defense and run game, and what is the problem???? He just needs to not turn the ball over. I hope Tom retires for his body’s sake, The TB12 method already has the recognition it needs.

    As for BB screwing the roster, remember Gronks big announcements, those all cake are the expense of the Patriots holding his contract passed when Jared Cook was signed. Remember David Andrews getting blood clots? Harry having a trip to IR and not even the mentioning of the Self inflicted AB fiasco.

    Brady will be back, they have no one to move on to and I hope they improve OL and DL

  21. I’m a Steeler fan but I still have respect for Brady. Patriot fans like Tylawspick6 should be embarrassed how they talk about him now. They are like Cowboy fans. I haven’t a Cowboy hat since the 3rd game of the season. My Steeler’s had a bad year, but I still
    stick behind them. Just a bunch of spoiled babies.
