Found August 04, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Coach Bill Belichick changed things up a bit yesterday by having his Patriots scrimmage. The stars of the day? Tom Brady and Danny Amendola. The quarterback and wide receiver only played what amounted to one series and change. But that’s all they needed and it almost wasn’t fair to their teammates. Brady and Amendola looked like they had been working together for years as opposed to months. Brady first hit his new go-to-guy on a seam route with Amendola catching the laser on his way into the end zone. Then after their side was awarded another drive following the touchdown Brady who celebrated his 36th birthday yesterday connected with Amendola on a fade route with the receiver extending his arms in the right corner of the end zone to pull in the pass. It couldn’t get much better. So after that exhibition both Brady and Amendola were done for the rest of the day. Amendola who spent time with Brady in California earlier in the year trying to get timing down after signing with the...

Tom Brady’s Birthday Presents Opportunity for Patriots Coach Pepper Johnson to Mock Quarterback’s Age (Photo)

Tom Brady is the second-oldest starting quarterback in the NFL, so the Patriots’ signal-caller is no spring chicken. Still, he is not nearly as old as linebackers coach Pepper Johnson claimed in a mocking T-shirt at training camp. For Brady’s birthday on Saturday, Johnson donned a shirt that read “Happy 40th Birthday Tom” on the field. It was a nice gesture, except Brady...

Brady frustrated with new WRs?

The Patriots have several new wide receivers to work with, and it sounds like Tom Brady is having some frustration with them already.

New England Patriots: Ranking the Receiving Corps During Camp

When Tom Brady is under center, there is little doubt that the New England Patriots will present a formidable aerial attack for even the best defenses in the league. Brady led a band of cast-aways to an AFC Championship game in 2006 and nearly succeeded in carrying them to a Super Bowl berth.Coming up in 2013 it might seem that he has an impossible task in creating a similar magic...

Bill Belichick: Danny Amendola has become a “dependable player”

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick sounds very pleased with what he’s seen from wide receiver Danny Amendola so far during camp. “He’s become a very dependable player for us. He doesn’t make many mental errors. He’s a guy who is usually in the right spot and has a good understanding of defenses and what he’s supposed to do. You can tell he’s been in the league for four...

Danny Amendola Filling Expectations, Julian Edelman’s Return Will Further Strengthen Patriots Receiving Corps (Video)

New England may have lost four of its top five receivers from last season,  but the Patriots new receiving corps has impressed so far in training camp. Danny Amendola had big shoes to fill as he was expected to effectively replace Wes Welker, and so far Amendola has lived up to the expectations. Julian Edelman will also help strengthen the Pats’ passing game as the wide receiver...

Tom Brady Celebrates 36th Birthday With Two Touchdown Passes, Some Much-Needed Rest

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady turned 36 on Saturday, but he looked as spry as ever during his brief time on the practice field at Patriots training camp. The Patriots took the field in their shorts and shells on Saturday morning, running an OTA-esque scrimmage –coincidentally? — on Brady’s birthday. The players broke off into two teams (white and blue), which appeared to be...

Belichick: Amendola is 'very dependable'

New Patriots WR Danny Amendola is making quite a splash at training camp. For anybody who has had the chance to go to Foxboro and watch one of the team's open practices, you most likely noticed how Amendola sticks out in the crowd. Not based on his size or stature, but #80 is fast... real fast. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how quickly he could move his feet and...

The Patriots Weight Room Records Board Is Awesome & Surprising

(June 2013) A.B. A few interesting notes here. 1) Tom Brady holds no weight room records. I guess Pats fans will have to settle for MVP’s and Super Bowl Championships instead. 2) Joe Andruzzi squatted 725 pounds; the equivalent of him squatting more than 4 of me on his back. 3) Matt Cassel holds 4 of 8 QB records but still sucks. 4) As of June, Aaron Hernandez’s name was on the...

Happy Birthday, Tom!

Happy Birthday to our quarterback and leader, Tom Brady!  TB12 turns 36 today and was very reflective about the years he's spent with the Patriots when talking to the Boston Globe. When asked if he had any plans, he responded in true workman fashion: "Practice. At 9 o'clock." Tom looks back and is amazed how fast time has gone.  “My 30th birthday I think...

Tom Brady Third Favorite to Win 2013 NFL MVP Behind Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers

Former San Francisco 49ers legends Joe Montana and Steve Young never won more than two NFL MVP awards in their careers. But if the Patriots’ Tom Brady can win his third MVP this season, he would join Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as the members of an elite class that have won at least three MVPs. Bovada oddsmakers don’t list Brady as the betting favorite...

That makes it the perfect time to look back on some of the positive storylines coming out of training camp thus far.
