View Full Version : Walking wounded: Brady spotted in cast

01-21-2008, 11:18 PM
Fans of the New England Patriots had to be swallowing hard Monday when pictures of quarterback Tom Brady sporting a walking cast on his right foot surfaced.

A video taken of Brady in New York Sunday, which is available on TMZ.com, shows the NFL's MVP returning to girlfriend Gisele Bundchen's apartment. He's walking gingerly on the sidewalk after emerging from a black SUV parked on the street.

During his weekly appearance on WEEI's "Dennis and Callahan" show, Brady didn't dismiss the notion he had suffered some type of leg injury during Sunday's AFC Championship win. "Ah, you know, there's always bumps and bruises. I'll be ready for the Super Bowl," Brady said, when asked point-blank if he had a leg injury.

Brady had an uncharacteristically rough game, throwing three interceptions for the first time this season. Despite throwing a pair of touchdown passes, he seemed a bit off all game. Many of Brady’s throws weren’t on target, with receivers such as Kevin Faulk [stats] having to dive or reach backward for the ball.

That’s not Brady.

Some of his problems might have been due to the windy conditions, while the Chargers also may have accounted for some of Brady’s ineffectiveness.

The foot problem, however, adds a new wrinkle, something that is going to cause much worry and concern in the coming week and beyond.

While Brady does have time to recover, the idea of him being hampered or hindered in any way is disconcerting given the upcoming opponent in the Super Bowl.

If he can’t push off that right (plant) foot, he can’t get zip on the ball. A closer look at Sunday’s game footage shows Brady at times appeared to be throwing off one foot, or not getting the proper help from his plant foot.

Moreover, the Giants have one of the better pass rushes in the NFL. If Brady is having trouble with his mobility, that could loom as an even larger problem, especially against an opponent that gave the Patriots one of their toughest games of the year.

A chink in the armor? I doubt it.

Two weeks is a nice bit of recovery time and if he was effective enough in the win against a good pass rush from San Diego...leads me to assume the same will be with the Giants.Worse comes to worse they have the option of leaning on Maroney.

.......or is this head games?

Think the whole thing might be some kind of Belachek ordered ruse to give the Giants a false sense of security? I wouldn't put it past him.

I don't think was a football related injury, more like a rough night with Giselle if you ask me.

I would love to see Strahan crack him in the leg, then yell "I'm not gay goddamnit!" for no reason

And now


The boot is back.

Maybe he had it temporarily lodged in the wall around the anal region of his Eli Manning Fathead?

He was on a dead sprint from Bridgette's pad back to Giselle's place, when he turned the corner and ran into something...
