Found August 04, 2013 on Football Nation:
Get your fantasy draft boards ready everyone. I'm about to rock your socks off. Because I'll tell you what...It's not Tom Brady.It's not my previously No. 1 ranked Aaron Rodgers.It's not even Peyton Manning.It's Drew Brees.Are you done yelling about how I am dumb yet? I can wait...Alright, now listen up. Brees hasn't thrown for under 4,000 yards since being with the Chargers. That was eight years ago. The last time he threw for less than 30 touchdowns was in 2008. That was five years ago. The past four years, he's been a top-3 player in fantasy football three times, and the other year, he was 6th.Now, you may say: "But Mike, he's not as good as the Trifecta!" But you'd be wrong. Oh, the trifecta would be Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning.He's thrown more touchdowns than Aaron Rodgers every year. He's thrown more yards than Brady every year. He's broken more records than all three of them. Plus, he's younger...

All Of The Arguing About Drew Brees’ $3 Tip Is Just Plain Stupid

(via Getty Image)Between Aaron Hernandez’s murder charges, Riley Cooper’s open invitation for safeties to decapitate him and even Johnny Manziel supposedly lowering his draft stock for being a typical college bro, I thought that the NFL’s writers who don’t like doing actual reporting on teams and players and simply prefer sticking to moral brow-beating and soap box finger...

Tom Brady’s supermodel wife gushes over him on his birthday (Photo)

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one lucky guy. His supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, posted an intimate black and white photo and this message on Instagram in honor of his 36th birthday.  “Happy birthday my love! Thank you for being the best husband, father and friend. Thank you for being you. I love you so much,” Bündchen wrote.

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...

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...

Saints' new defense shine during scrimmage

The defense run by new coordinator Rob Ryan is showing early promise for the New Orleans Saints, compiling five sacks and three turnovers during a scrimmage on Saturday. Outside linebacker Junior Galette had two sacks, one each against Drew Brees and Luke McCown. Veteran cornerback Chris Carr, who chose during free agency to rejoin Ryan, his former coordinator in Oakland, made an...

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...

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.

Amendola, Brady make a connection

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...

New England Patriots: How Belichick Will Field Another Gem

ESPN ranks the New England Patriots sixth in offense going into 2013; Matt Stein of Bleacher Report ranks Brady and Co. eighth.Tom Brady and his Patriots led the league in scoring for 2013, good enough for second best in NFL history. And he did it with a revolving door at both tight end and receiver. Just look at the list of receivers who missed time to injury in 2012:Rob GronkowskiAaron...

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...

Vote: What Has Been the Most Positive Patriots Training Camp Storyline Thus Far?

Sunday was an off day for the Patriots, as they prepare for their first preseason game on Friday. That makes it the perfect time to look back on some of the positive storylines coming out of training camp thus far. One of the biggest question marks heading into this season was how New England would try to overcome the loss of four of its five top receivers from last year. The other...
