Does this mean anything? I know this is from the gossip rag in the Herald, but why would Brady be excused from riding home on the team bus for personal reasons? The article went on to say that his girlfriend was NOT with him in the car, so I would think it would lean toward his family...and sounded like it was to rush him out of the stadium. From The It-Doesnâ€™t-Suck-To-Be-Tom-Brady File: The New England Patriots QB/QT didnâ€™t depart the Meadowlands with the rest of the team Sunday after shutting down Eric Manginiâ€™s Jets 24-17. He booked outta there in a New Jersey State Police cruiser! Well, you donâ€™t expect No. 12 to sit in traffic do you???? Or ride in what the cool kids call the â€śloser cruiser!â€ť â€śHe was excused for personal reasons,â€ť said team spokesguy Stacey James.
