Friday is an important day in American history.
It marks the 35th birthday of America’s celebrity quarterback, Thomas E. Brady Jr.
Join me on a journey through time (as I choose to interpret it) as we salute the five time three-time Super Bowl champion.
THE WONDER YEARS
Our first stop is around 1987 with a 10-year-old Thomas as he makes his way around town.
He looks like a kid that enjoyed recess, chocolate milkshakes from McDonald’s, Skittles, Big League Chew, baseball, and syndicated episodes of Three’s Company.

Brady still supports the 49ers despite ...

Fights in training camp and extra laps were certainly not on Tom Brady's wish list for his birthday. But after practice sessions that saw him receive them anyway on the day he turned 35 yeard old, the two-time league and Super Bowl MVP had had enough. Brady shooed the coaches away and gave his teammates a stern talking-to during a players-only meeting, in an attempt to knock...

Quarterback Tom Brady looks fine. The Patriots' passing attack should pick up right where it left off. No worries in that phase of the game across New England.
The running game? Well, that's a different story.
As is often the case in the Bill Belichick era, the backfield is in a state of flux. Players going. Players coming. You name it. Uncertainty rules the day.

New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady turned 35 on Friday, a year in which most quarterbacks start to slow down. Only four quarterbacks in the history of the NFL were able to win a Super Bowl after turning 35.

I’ve talked a lot about parity in my previews before. One team that hasn’t been subject to the ups and down of the NFL over the last decade is the New England Patriots. Since 2001, the Patriots have 9+ games every season, won double digit games in 10 of 11 seasons, made the playoffs 9 times, won 12+ 6 times and 13+ 5 times. They’ve made it to the playoffs 9 times, the...
