    It definitely affected him in the second half of the Super Bowl. Once he reinjured that shoulder, he went from something like a 16 pass completion streak to wildly inaccurate.

    Every year, we hear about these injuries. Almost like making excuses. :mad:

    I don't think it's making excuses at all. It's not like Brady and Mankins have come out and said "Gee, if I'd have been at 100%, things would have been different.". Not at all, they haven't said a word..... These are just reports that are inevitably gonna come out (particularly if they are true), and when they do most people are like.... "Yeah, I guess that makes sense".

    Whether it was a reinjury, or just a regular injury.... It's pretty clear that Tuck's hit on Brady effected him somehow. As has been noted, he was a completely different QB after. No zip and inaccurate.

    I've often wondered how an injury to your non throwing shoulder can affect your throwing motion, maybe it's a balance thing.

    I think it's just a "Pain" thing. A seperated shoulder hurts like hell, especially when you reinjure it by getting smashed by a monster like Tuck

    Oh, I know the pain, I had it happen as a 12 year old, coach popped it back in, cried like a baby. And I didn't have to throw, I was a LB.

    Would you prefer he sets himself up as a warrior and show/aanounce the pain like Big Ben?

    Atthe end of the season no-body (like what i did there) is at 100% and it was clear during the game that he got hurt. Just didn't know it was hurt thag bad before the game. Not bad for a skinny kid from Michigan State via California.

    Big Ben IS a warrior. You don't believe me? Just ask him...he'll tell you.

    Ben once played a game with a painful toe injury. He told us all about it before he gutted it out. That Ben is amazing.

    I would agree if these reports came out in February. Besides, Mankins playing the entire season with a torn ACL can't be farther from excuse making on why the Pats lost the Super Bowl.

    Almost? Either say it is or it isn't. Man up.
