The Patriots missed out on going to back to back Super Bowls, but what does that mean for Tom Brady's legacy? On my radio show this week (Football Extra Points) I talked about Tom Brandy and what his legacy was in New England.
Tom Brady came into the NFL with no expectations. He wasn't even the full time starter at Michigan. It did not take him long to get...
The NFL fined Tom Brady for sliding with his cleats high on Ed Reed. Brady apologized to Reed for the slide, which may have led to the fine.
Brady should be fine.
I don’t think it was the worst thing I have ever seen, but the NFL fines players for wearing their socks too high, so I think Brady should be a little lighter in the wallet.
For his part Ed Reed says he isn’t tripping.
“I told him — you know, we talked,” Reed told WJZ-FM in Baltimore. “We talked actually not too long ago, we talked on the phone....
Tom Brady appears to aim kick at Ed Reed in AFC Championship game
Questions swirl regarding whether or not New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady attempted to kick Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed during Sunday’s AFC Championship game.
Even the NFL is reviewing the play to see if they need to levy a fine.
Brady apologized to Reed, nonetheless. During an interview...
The NFL is looking into Tom Brady's leg-up slide that hit Ravens
safety Ed Reed in the AFC championship game.
This one little play has certainly gotten a lot of attention. With the final seconds of the second quarter counting down, Tom Brady scrambled, was surrounded by defenders, and then slid awkwardly with his leg going right for Reed's, umm, leg. The Patriots went on to kick a field goal while the Ravens went on to win the game. Apparently that wasn't good enough for some of...
“Leg is feeling alright. A little sore right now,” Reed told WJZ-FM on Monday. “A little slide kick (by Brady), you know what I’m saying. But it’s a tough spot the quarterback’s in. You know, I understand Brady’s point. Him protecting himself. I know he’s a great player. I respect Brady and his game for all it stands for, and I know he’s not a dirty player...
Andrew Luck doesn't care how he got to Hawaii. He's just glad he made it.
The record-setting rookie quarterback says he's enjoying workouts as he prepares to play in his first Pro Bowl game Sunday.
The No. 1 overall draft pick wasn't one of the three quarterbacks originally chosen for the AFC's all-star team. But New England's Tom Brady pulled out because...
Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning will get a chance to be teammates after all - at Sunday's Pro Bowl.
Luck earned his way to the game when New England's Tom Brady pulled out with an undisclosed injury.
He'll be joined by teammates Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis in Hawaii and Manning, the quarterback who preceded Luck in Indy.
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in April&...

With the New England Patriots 28-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, some analysts are wondering if Tom Brady’s best days are behind him. At thirty-five years old, Brady may only have five or six years left before he is looking to retire.
After eight straight seasons...
Before diving into the two week buildup that is the Super Bowl (and which will be even more blown up than ever before because of the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other) I’ll go ahead and share the video that the guys from “Bad Lip Reading” on YouTube posted last week. Ever wonder what the coach was saying after that game-changing call? Wonder why Tom Brady was high...
Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
