I know the majority of us are sane and realize Brady is just dealing with some rust, but for those who need to be further convinced. In 2008 Brady was injured in the first game of the season requiring major knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. In 2008, Manning had surgery to remove an infected bursa sac in his left knee and ended up sitting out of all four pre-season games while also missing most of training camp. Here's how they both fared after two weeks of play. 2008: Manning 1-1 Record 56/91 (61.5%) 568 Yards (6.2 Average) 2 TDs / 2 INTs 2009: Brady 1-1 Record 62/100 (62.0%) 594 Yards (5.9 Average) 2 TDs / 2 INTs The Colts ended up going 3-4 through 8 weeks, coming off a two game losing streak and were looking to be in some trouble. Then, in the first week of November Manning puts up a 121.9 QB rating, defeats the Pats and proceeds to run the table for the rest of the regular season while winning NFL MVP. After throwing 9 interceptions in the first 7 games Manning threw only 4 during the final 9 games. Patience.
