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 team as a free agent has been a constant at the quarterback’s side during training camp to go over plays and routes. The scrimmage success had to be taken as a sign that all the hard work was paying off.
