    Tom Brady’s doubts inevitable - BostonHerald.com
    I was pissed when I first read it. He is correct thou. I just hope people give him time. He has not played a game since the Super Bowl. I hope Bradys competive nature doesnt cause him to get frustrated.I hope fans give him time to get through this.

    Somehow I get the drift that Borges doesn't want Brady to fully come back from the injury. :rolleyes: You're going on quite a tear about Brady's ability to plant his leg on the long throws tonight, huh?

    Yawn.

    Borges never ceases to amuse me with his absurd hyperbole and extrapolations.

    This quote officially makes the article ridiculous:

    Um, Ron... were you not watching this play? Brady was completely blindsided by Geathers. Someone inform Mr. Borges that it is kind of hard to "slide step" when you don't know that someone is coming.

    As wrong as Borges so often is, he is right about the comment regarding Brady making a slight step left/right/forward to avoid to avoid those hits. All of them as well the pressure moments.

    I also agree that Brady likely has some mental obstacles to overcome. I have no doubt he will though.

    on the one hit no slide step would have helped.

    At which point during the game were you concerned about this? Brady was pressured twice. The first was on a full on blitz by Rivers in which Rivers was coming at him so fast that Brady didn't have time to side step and had to throw it away. The second was on an unexpected hit from Robert Geathers in which Brady did not see him because his eyes were downfield.

    Now, with that said, I did see Brady on those two long throws. He was statue-esque on both of them. But this is a thing that all professional athletes, scratch that, HUMANS need to get through after suffering an injury. Brady had 8 attempts on Thursday night. He's going to see a lot more against a Redskins team with a damn good pass rush. I have a feeling he'll get the kinks worked out. :cool:

    "he is right about the comment regarding Brady making a slight step left/right/forward to avoid to avoid those hits"

    sure I have seen brady do this many times but I have also seen him get his share of hits too...it happened before it will happen again until we get a much larger sample we can't make any judgements as to wether his side step abilities have diminished and even when the sample gets bigger it still could be a bad conclusion unless it is glaringly obvious any number of factors could contribute.

    as to shaking off the rust and fans giving him time he will get plenty of leeway from us and I don't think it will be as bad as Manning last year as he gets to use preseason and Manning only took a few weeks.

    He's got plenty of time to get back to form, and he will get back to form by season's end. It could work out for the better as now we know this team can't peak too early again.

    I believe Brady went 4-8 throwing the ball in this game. 8! Let's try to remember something about sample size shall we Ron?

    What a piece of hogwash.

    "Brady hasn’t looked right all summer, except in drills when he knew no one was coming at him with bad intentions."

    He looked great against Philly. One bad quarter of football and Borges is all excited.

    If next week he plays like crap....if he looks skiddish...then I'll worry. He should be in there for more than a half. Good litmus test.

    Well said, I really enjoy reading an article first thing in the am that refers to us fans as "sycophants"..... wrongful ronnie is back at it, still spewing venom from the sins of the past...

    I don't read that clown, but if Brady is our biggest worry, I'm fine with that.

    Ron has never quite gotten over the fact that he was so wr...wr...wrong about the flash in the pan kid QB who could only throw the ball sideways (and most everything else about this team of the decade). In part because unlike his predecessor, or that DE he was so dead set against drafting, Brady has never given Ron a shot at becoming his best media friend.

    In the every cloud has a silver lining category though, if nothing else his contrived Brady angst has resulted in Ron inadvertently admitting for the first time it wasn't solely something teams were forever lacking that led to his former uber binky's early retirement.

    It's gotta be tough to be a columnist in this town who is expected to fill space short of plagerizing absent meaningful access to the team of the decade...short of taking potshots at us synchophants who choose to trust in the hoodie and the kid based on little more than their track record.

    I keep telling myself that I will not get mad reading meaningless crap spewed by sycophants. I think I will get a better perspective from some of the fans in charger/colts nation than this guy who is not allowed anywhere within 10 miles from Gillette

    You act like Brady should never be hit, and that before surgery he used to avoid all blitzers and rushers.

    I read that he was the most hit QB in the last few years.

    The problem isn't Brady. It is unrealistic expectations on fans' part, and an agenda on Borges part. (He isn't stupid. He knows that Brady got hit a lot before and will be hit a lot again. He simply chooses to twist facts and mispresent.)
