    Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over. | Bleacher Report

    The end is near Boston. Brady goes down, the Red Sox lose to Tampa, and now Brady may be done for good. The biggest star outside of Larry Legend in Boston history may never play a down again.

    The mistake of not waiting the extra weeks will probably cost Brady his career. It's reported that the infection is serious and another surgery could be on the horizon. What I don't understand, is the rush on Brady's part

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    We havent heard anything since Dr. Andrews came out and talked about whats going on with Brady's knee, cases like this no news is good news. If the infection was not getting better and needed another procedure we would of heard about it by now.

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    Having three surgeries in such little time is very disturbing. I don't think he's career is over, but I don't think he will ever be the same. It's sad because Moss will be a year older but I don't know what that guy is taking about concerning Welker. In fact, Welker hasn't reached 30 years old yet. The author is right about the O-line, which many of of were concerned about heading into the season. Whether it's Cassel's fault or not, the Pats O-line looks like of the worst in the league. However, they are getting better as the weeks go on. With that said, the Pats top draft pick this April must be an offensive tackle or guard. At this point, the Pats #1 priority is Tom Brady.

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    If I'm not mistaken, two of those 'surgeries' consisted of treating the infection, which I heard a doctor explain on WEEI are minimally invasive procedures which don't meet the layperson's standard/criteria for 'surgery.' :confused2:

    I apologize for interrupting your deeply pessimistic outlook. Please carry on. :rip:

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    I dont agree with you in terms of Brady will never be the same, Carson Palmer and Rivers both returned the following year to have great seasons maybe even career bests, both had much less time to recover then Brady will. The fact that Brady is a pure pocket passer only helps his cause.

    The o-line hasnt played up to par with last year but I dont think its fair saying Brady made them look all better then they really are, I do agree he did buy them time with his quick decision making and ability to step up or the side to avoid the rush, but there were games last year I remember where he'd sit back there for about 4 or 5 seconds with nobody within a couple of feet of him. They oline and Brady deserve alot of credit for last season, the line is still full of talent.

    As for Moss ya he'l be a year older but just last year before he signed on it was reported he ran a 4.3 or 4.4 or somethin within that range, the guy can still run tremendously and will be just as dangerous next season, he's still the best deep threat in the game and commands more double teams then any WR in the game.

    this was a dumb story. if there's anything belichick has proved, it's that he can put a team together where brady has a chance to succeed. i'm not sure he'll ever have the same confidence, but he'll come back and play, and they'll do well. how well, we will see.

    It's obvious why he chose California -- he wanted to be near his child.

    Putting family ahead of football IS acceptable when the tradeoffs are like that.

    As for the rest -- give me a break. Brady has won 3 Super Bowls without Moss and none with him. He's also won 3 Super Bowls with an OL no better than what the Patriots have today.

    I love the moron is arguing that Brady shouldn't come back because he saw how Carson Palmer struggled when he returned. Funny, the first season after tearing three ligaments in his knee, dislocating his knee cap and suffering cartlidge damage; Carson Palmer threw for 4,035 yards (a career high at that point), completed 62.3% of his passes, 28 TDs, and 13 INTs for a 93.9 passer rating. If that is not a clear cut sign for Brady to retire, than I don't know what is.

    I hate the Bleacher Report because any moron can post anything without having any clue of the actual facts.

    You're taking great liberties with the word "author"

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    The word surgery is used very liberally when discussing Brady these days. Brady did not have three surgeries. He had one surgery and subsequent procedures to flush out the wound. That could be nothing more than injecting the wound and flushing it out. Dr. Andrews who consulted on the case and the only one who has medical knowledge and first hand knowledge of Brady's situation stated specifically that a lot of rumors and speculations about Brady were way overboard. People predicted that Carson Palmer may never be the same again either eventhough he had a could of great years after his reconstruction.

    BTW, the o-line has looked pretty good the last two weeks. The return of Neal has definitely helped.

    He also chose California because the doctor he chose to do the surgery is one of the best in the world at what he does. It isn't like he decided to go to some hack in California over the best doctors in the world in Massachusetts.

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    Thank you for pointing that out to the masses. I didn't even bother clicking on the link to read the article; I may as well be reading something on a fan forum such as Indy Star or Steelers Fever.

    It is beyond me how much credibility Bleacher Report has, given that it is all fan-based content, but I guess that is over-looked due it's being linked on sites like CBS Sportline and FOX Sports. Great marketing concept, but questionable content in my opinion.

    Re: Article: Why Tom Brady's Career Is Over.

    Indeed. In every publication, they were called "procedures," not "surgeries." This is a subtle way of altering people's opinions towards the catastrophic while not actually saying anything. What the media failed to mention is that the two procedures following the surgery were routine and designed to drain the infection. It wasn't like they chopped up his knee a second, third, or fourth time; like others have said, in this case, no news is good news.

    For those of you who haven't read the article, I'll sum it up for you: "I have a qualification to comment on this situation because someone agreed to post what I wrote on this fan website. I got ACL surgery done in high school, it sucked, but mine went well. Brady's doesn't appear to be going well, so he's probably done. Also, I'm not a medical professional, nor an athlete at a high level, nor do I have any knowledge of what's going on. This is pure speculation and I'm talking out of my ass for the purpose of drawing in viewers. Even if this is absolute bull****, you're reading it, so congratulations! You fulfilled my expectation of you!"

    Again, the only opinion I'll trust on this subject is the one of the guy who plays football at my college (perennial top 25), who had the same injury Brady did, who got his surgery done by the same guy Brady did, who I asked if Brady will be ready by training camp. His answer? "No doubt. He'll be ready about 3 months before that." This was pre-infection, but even if the infection turns the table back (it didn't really on Manning, for instance), I'm still 99% confident he'll be ready by opening day 2009.

    I think the reason they have so much hate is because they know he is that good and obviously there are a lot of people who just hate better players than what their team has.
