NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, is leading his banged up Brady bunch against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and although his Patriots are 4-0, Mike Florio of NBCSports reports that Brady knows the offense will be better once a few of his favorite targets come back from injury. Brady is having a poor year statistically. So it is only natural that Brady wants his favorite tight end, Rob Gronkowski, back between the sidelines. Brady, in an interview with Jim Gray, had this to say about his eccentric TE:He’s been on the active roster for the last four weeks and I’ve seen him every day working as hard as he can to get back. So it ends up being a medical decision and that’s not my role. So I’m just waiting for the day that he does get back because he adds so much to our offense. Every week that he’s been out there he’s made significant improvement. So it’ll be great when he’s back and it’ll be great when we get Danny Amendola back and Shane Vereen back and finally we can see what our offense is really made of. Whether that’s this week or the following week or the following week. I mean those things are really not determined by me.If Brady could make those decisions, no doubt he would have them all on the field at once. Let us be honest here, I would be surprised if the Patriots could get Vereen, Gronkowski and Amendola healthy at the same time to get them all playing together.In regards to Gronkowski, there is much back and forth as to when he will be ready to play. Some reports have everyone from his agent to his father telling him to play or not to play. Brady calls it a "medical decision." If you follow me, you know my take on it. Gronkowski will play when Patriots head coach Bill Belichick tells him to play. Former Pats V.P. of player personnel, Scott Pioli, echoed my sentiments, explaining during last Sunday’s edition of Football Night in America, that coach Belichick does not listen to “camps” or parents or anyone else when deciding whether a player is ready to play. Pioli also added, "Belichick loves the uncertainty that comes from contradictory and inconsistent reports, since it forces opponents to spend time planning to face a guy who ultimately may not play."The Patriots head into Week 5 undefeated and Brady knows his offense will get better when he gets more of his toys put back in his toy box. Until then, it is status quo and all systems go in Foxborough, MA. You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.

TOM BRADY - THE BEST EVER (by CelticsPatriotsman)
While the NFL is trying to build support for a London-based team, British fans may have already chosen sides.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings played their Week 4 matchup at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday, and discounting jerseys from the two winless teams involved, The Wall Street Journal reports that a whopping 13.4 percent of all other jerseys at the game were New...

The New England Patriots have heard Tom Brady’s cries for help, and went out and got him some veteran insurance.
ESPN Boston is reporting that the Patriots have signed former Colts wide receiver Austin Collie.
The Patriots have signed veteran WR Austin Collie, according to a league source.

Collie has dealt with some concussion issues in the past.
Julian Edelman has been called many things during his tenure in New England but there’s a pretty good chance no one has ever used the term “spaz” when describing the wide receiver.

The New England Patriots have signed wide receiver Austin Collie. Collie was spotted practicing with the team on Thursday wearing No. 10. Collie spent training camp with the 49ers before being released during the team’s final cuts. He will have a chance to contribute to New England, where four of the team’s six wide receivers — Danny Amendola (groin), Kenbrell Thompkins ...
Easy work on Sunday night!
Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to a fantastic 30-23 road victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football. It ensured that the Pats moved on to 4-0 for the third time in Bill Belichick’s tenure and it was the head coach’s 209th win which moved him to joint 5th all-time with Chuck Noel. It was a back to the future performance for...
Terrell Suggs has a Super Bowl ring, five Pro Bowl appearances and an All-Pro selection to his name. The one possession that continues to define his career, however, is his big mouth.
Suggs is back to flapping his gums, his most recent rants and raves coming from an interview with ESPN’s E:60. Suggs continued to prove he has no filter, as the Baltimore Ravens linebacker went on...
Ravens' Terrell Suggs has this weird obsession with the New England Patriots. He'll take any opportunity to bash them, even when it is completely unprovoked and irrelevant.
It's really rather pathetic. Anyway, Suggs was featured on E60 recently, obviously he had a lot to say about the Patriots.
When asked, "who pisses you off the most in the NFL?" Suggs quickly...
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady took a page out of Chris Bosh’s playbook yesterday. Minutes after leading the Patriots to a 30-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons, quarterback Tom Brady flashed a peace sign, he said “Hi, Mom.” Nice work Tom. See the GIF below:

Vince Wilfork is on the road to recovery after undergoing succesful surgery to repair his ruptured Achilles tendon Tuesday, but the rest of this season looks pretty bleak for the nose tackle. Head coach Bill Belichick said Wilfork is “probably unlikely” to play again this year, and the Pats will miss the big body on the field and in the locker room.

With Terrell Suggs going off yesterday about how much he hates Tom Brady's hair, we did some digging. We thought it was weird that Suggs was so obsessed with Brady's hair (mentioning it several times over the years). Turns out Suggs' was originally supposed to be part of the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy crew back whenever that show was on the air.
Now it makes a lot...
Usually in the NFL we know who the elite teams are, but sometimes we have a hard time defining exactly what that means. Do elite teams have shutdown defenses, high-octane offense and great kickers on special teams? Well, as we’ve seen this year, there’s no one qualification.
The Denver Broncos, for example, are the hottest team in football. Peyton Manning is putting up touchdowns...
