This Given Sunday:
The Patriots struggled in a big way last night against the Detroit Lions. Tom Brady wasn’t bad, but an interception prevented his stats line from looking good by any stretch and the lack of a touchdown pass is very uncharacteristic. The Patriots offense was without Danny Amendola, and that was bound to hurt the team’s productivity. Amendola has taken the role of Tom Brady’s safety blanket, and without him, the Patriots were never able to find their rhythm on offense. Then again, three lost fumbles will tend to kill any offensive productions. It was a sloppy game for the Patriots, but that doesn’t mean the Lions deserved no credit. For their part, especially on defense, they simply outplayed the Patriots. The Patriots’ defense is by no means an elite unit, so we need to take the Lions’ offensive performance with a grain of salt. Matthew Stafford was good, not great. The Lions were able to run the ball with some success, and Reggie Bush is quite clearly going to be a weapon in t...

Louis Delmas may be one of the harder hitters in the NFL when he is healthy, but there is one player in the league he respects. That’s Tom Brady, who has been injured and came back stronger than ever. Here is the quote Delmas used: @AdamSchefter: Lions S Louis Delmas, whose team plays New England […]

Tom Brady - Preseason Week 3 Lions.avi (by JBSTARemixes)
Just Brady’s snaps from the last preseason debacle in Detroit.
Could someone please let Willie Young and his $1.2 million dollar salary know that it is the preseason and pointing a finger in the face of Tom Brady really isn’t a smart idea. The Lions are continuing their recent history of making poor decisions, and the below is probably just one in a long line of new ones to come this season. Again, I repeat… Preseason.

Um, don’t poke the Brady.
The Patriots had plenty to worry about in their 40-9 preseason loss to the Lions on Thursday night, but one thing they surely weren’t worrying about was the fierce play of Lions defensive end Willie Young. The fourth-year player put a nice rush on Tom Brady in the second quarter before seemingly forgetting a few key facts — like, that it was the preseason...
When the New England Patriots signed Danny Amendola this
offseason, many viewed him as the next Wes Welker with Tom Brady at the helm.
While Amendola posted solid totals when he was on the field in St. Louis, he’s
missed significant time over the years due to several injuries. Amendola
apparently still has some of that injury-proneness in him, as he missed
practice on Monday...
The University of Michigan football team already has plenty of resources at its disposal. Patriots fans could argue that few are as invaluable as what they were able to experience Thursday morning.
That’s because Patriots quarterback and Michigan alum Tom Brady was on campus to speak with the Wolverines on Thursday. The former Michigan quarterback — who battled for playing time...
Heading into the 2013 Big Ten football season, all eyes are on Ohio State, not Michigan. Tom Brady, a Wolverines alum, knows a thing or two about being looked over – he was drafted 199th overall by the New England Patriots in 2000. This morning, he spoke to the team in Ann Arbor – the school tweeted out a photo of the occasion.

Throughout our lives, we often see great things--in anything really. Breathtaking views upon mountain tops, scenic rivers, and historical landmarks. For sports fans, witnessing greatness is something we take often take for granted. Year after year we rely on our favorite players--sometimes our idols--to drive our favorite teams to their destination. Little do we ever take into account...
Unlike others I don’t have a problem with it.
It is the preseason. and it is the Lions, they probably shouldn’t taunt anyone, but Tom Brady is not a GOD, you can get up in his face even if you have only 25 tackles in four seasons.
The refs were weak throwing a flag on this.

Louis Delmas has personally witnessed Brady destroy his team
Now this is the kind of talk before a game I can get behind.
We're usually used to players on the Ravens barking about how much they hate Tom Brady. Of course, that's usually born from some sort of respect for his game, but I like it better when they just come out and say it.
Lions S Louis Delmas, whose team...
Let the predictions begin!
Thankfully the start of the regular season is right around the corner. However, that great news comes with some annoying residue. ESPN predictions.
Most are picking the Patriots to have a down year in the 2013 season. The reason being that they have a lot of unknown names on offense, their defense is still a question mark and Brady is getting older every...
It's preseason. It was ugly for both first team units. The New England Patriots came into Ford Field to face the Detroit Lions and it was widely believed that this would be a shootout. Both starting quarterbacks can sling the ball better than 90% of the league. But there were some notable absences, like the leading receivers on both squads in Calvin Johnson and Danny Amendola...
It’s safe to say that when the New England Patriots made the curious decision to let Wes Welker sign with AFC rival Denver Broncos for only slightly more money than what they had been offering, they were confident that the weapons Tom Brady still had around him would be more than enough to make the passing attack one of the best in the NFL yet again.
Then they learned Gronk had...
