Tom Brady reported on Christian Ponder’s injury by accident

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady keeps in contact with his former back up Matt Cassel.  He told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that it looks like Cassel will start this week after Ponder suffered a rib injury this past Sunday.

Ponder was able to throw the ball during today’s walk-through.

    So Brady let something from a conversation with a friend slip that would better have been kept quiet. Is there anyone alive who hasn’t done that from time to time? BFD.

    Why are unimportant data like this around and Amendola’s head to head, knocking him unconscious, with no ref penalty last week, go unmentioned ?

    The Pat’s were homered in NY today

    This “article” is like a fart in a windstorm. Who cares? Brady is a fly-by-night getting more attention than he deserves. I predict a brief career.

    That “prediction” is typical Pats-hating. Facts don’t matter. For them “Belicheat and the Cheatriots” must be bums who’ve cheated, because we all know that NOBODY could consistently beat their beloved (Jets)(Steelers)(Colts)(Eagles). It’s fascinating that the fans of teams that have over the years done fairly well against the Patriots, like the Giants or Broncos, aren’t similarly obsessed, and you can talk on a pretty friendly basis with them. But one thing about this prediction. If someone keeps making it, eventually the day when it will be true that Brady hasn’t much longer to play. At this point, I’d guess Brady probably has two or three more seasons as a top-drawer QB, and will be able to play at an acceptable NFL level for about two or three more after that. He has too much pride to play when he can no longer play at an acceptable NFL level. Typically great QB’s will have that one last bad season that tells them, “This is it.” The most recent great QB to come to that day was Brett Favre. The next one will be Peyton Manning, and then Brady. There’s the occasional Len Dawson or Roger Staubach who is great to the last day.
