Found September 14, 2013 on The Football Fan Spot:
Washington Redskins (0-1) at Green Bay Packers (0-1) I’ve flip-flopped on this one so many times because it’s tough to know what to expect from Robert Griffin. Robert Griffin threw 4 interceptions all last regular season. Now he has 4 interceptions in his last 2 games combined, including the playoff loss to Seattle. It’s worth noting that Tom Brady had one of the worst seasons of his career in the season after returning from his ACL tear and he had 4 months extra to recover and had no prior injury. He also wasn’t nearly as reliant on his legs as Griffin. Griffin wasn’t stepping into throws and took off running just 5 times against Philadelphia. He’ll improve as the season goes on, but it’s very possible we don’t see 2012 RG3 until 2014. On the other hand, he did look better later in the game as he seemed to grow more comfortable with his legs and in the pocket. It’s understandable he would struggle in his first game back considering he didn’t play at all in the pre-season. Perhaps h...

The Best Of Tom Brady Reacting To Patriots Dropped Passes (GIFs)

Tom Brady gets pissed when his receivers drop passes, so if you were under a rock last night or missed the Patriots ugly rained drenched victory over the Jets, then you missed some memorable faces from Tom Terrific.

Brady: 'It just doesn't magically come together'

Tom Brady hasn’t often been through the kind of night he endured Thursday night and still won the game. The 2011 AFC championship comes to mind. But this Patriots team is a long ways from that and Brady knows it. The Patriots quarterback was 19-of-39 for just 185 yards and did throw a touchdown pass that extended his streak of games with a touchdown pass to 50. The Patriots beat...

Does Tom Brady need to calm the hell down?

Last night, Tom Brady was visibly frustrated. It was pretty understandable too, as his receivers were constantly either running the wrong routes or dropping the ball. Still, Mr. Brady was not exactly perfect himself. Barking at his young receivers that are still developing, isn't going to much for either his public image or their confidence. After the outburst in the video...

Tom Brady: 'I have to do a better job with my body language'

As the Patriots offense struggled vs. the Jets on Thursday quarterback Tom Brady had one of his worst statistical performances in some time going 19 for 39 for 185 yards and a touchdown -- the first time he completed less than half of his passes in four years. The team escaped an inferior opponent for the second-straight week and it was telling how frustrated Brady was with most...

Starting Lineups: Mo Lewis Made Tom Brady

As the New England Patriots and New York Jets were combatting in a relatively boring 13-10 game last night with the Patriots prevailing, I couldn’t help but think back to 2001 and the start of the Tom Brady era.

Brady: Problem isn't just receiver position

BY NICK ST. DENISTom Brady spent most of last Thursday night screaming at his young group of wide receivers. Monday, he's calmly assessing the team as a whole.New England's inexperienced pass-catchers (or droppers) struggled against the New York Jets last week in a tight 13-10 win, and while Brady let them know about it, the veteran quarterback is taking some ownership of...

Let’s talk about Tedy Bruschi on Tom Brady

Happy Sunday without Patriots football! It might sound weird, but all it means is that there is no undue stress this Sunday as a result of the New England Patriots. In the words of Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg, it is a “Lazy Sunday”. Go ahead and wake-up in the mid-afternoon if you want to. So let’s talk about former Patriots and what they think of the current Patriots. Most...

Patriots Receivers Set A New Low In Embarrassing Performance Against Jets

There have been quite a few horrible receivers or it’s probably more appropriately to say horrible receiving performances. But the masterpiece in poor receiver play that the Patriots receivers put together last night has to rank near the top. Tom Brady hit those guys everywhere except the bottom of their feet and they struggled mightily to make plays. The receivers Aaron Dobson...

Let’s Talk About #SexyRexy

Chicks, I’ll admit it. I found myself catching the vapors last night. And not just because Tom Brady looked like he might slit his wrist with a Gillette razor if a receiver dropped another pass. It was that fellow, nay, that warrior on the Jets sideline, distracting me in all his slimmer, yet still fleshy glory. It was that tan hunk of man known to the masses as Rex Ryan....

New England Patriots - What were they thinking

by Bo Marchionte Watching the game unfold Thursday night it was clearly evident that the New England Patriots passing game was not up to par.

Five Things to Know from Jets-Patriots

While waiting for their once-potent offense to click, the New England Patriots keep knocking off opponents.

Football Week Two: A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Week two started early with a Thursday night game in Foxboro Massachusetts. It was a dark and stormy night, though not the only one this week.
