I say 8 for 11, 97 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT.
I hope people will let Brady play off the rust. He will make a few bad throws , maybe throw a pick. To expect him to be in 2007 form in the first preseason game after being out of action a year is unrealistic. The preseason games should be used to help him get his timing ect for the regular season. I dont think that can be judged by his stats.
I don't expect much tonight from Brady. I think just getting in there and knocking the rust off and seeing some heat will be enough. Just for fun let's say: 6 for10, 55 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int.
Brady has 2 Attempts 1 Completion 21 yards passing,the rest of his very short time on the field are runs
1 Series then on the bench for TB
Andrew Walter has 120 Yards and 1 TD & 2 Ints
O,Connell has 96 Yards and 0 TDs 0 Ints
Something that adds up to a Pass Rating of 81.5.
Come on, how do I know? He'll drop back to pass a few times, maybe ten or eleven, complete some, miss some, maybe get a TD, maybe throw an INT. So much depends on what BB is trying to get done with other players, on what the situation is on the field, on who Andy Reid has on the field. Nothing great, nothing bad; a performance that adds up to a low 80's pass rating.
I will make one prediction: the O line won't let him take a sack tonight and the starting O line won't be pulled until Tommy has taken his pads off.
The only prediction I care about coming true in the stats column is # of injuries to Brady:0.
First series will be as follows
Making a statement to the rest of the NFL that Brady is back and not taking prisoners: Priceless.
BTW, I don't see Brady on the field long enough to make 11 passes. I think if he has a really good series, he will be yanked after the first series.
6 for 6, 125 yards, 2 TDs
8/11 83 yards, 1 td.
Final score: 28 - 12 Pats.
The back half of our roster is much better tan theirs.
Have they said for sure if Brady's playing tonight?
3/5, 40 yards 1 TD/0 INT
One drive and out.
Actual stats line:
10 for 15, 100 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT. I wasn't that far off!
