According to Mike&Mike this morning, Giselle is due mid Dec.

If the baby is born Tuesday through Fri - I say he plays.

If the baby is born Sat, Sun or Giselle goes into labor on Sunday for a Monday birth, he misses the game to be with her.

The reasoning behind this is that you know she will be in NYC (or CA?) for the birth - not MGH or Beth Israel. He will be there.

This reasoning indicates there is a 4/7th (57%) chance he misses a game.

If the 1 seed is on the line, will this bother you? If a perfect season is on the line, will it bother you?

What conditions would you excuse Tom if a situation came up where he couldn't/didn't want to play.

This is clearly different than the Pedroia situation as there are only 19 games (hopefully) not 162+ plus a 2B does not equal a QB for obvious reasons.

He won't miss a game. This isn't baseball when the players go running home to mommy.

Brady has not said when Gisele is do. How would they know?

good question.

I based on Mike & Mike this morning. Podcast available ESPNRadio.com - ESPN.

She is definitely due during the season sometime since they probably didn't announce it to she was 3 months and there is no way it can stretch beyond +/- Feb 3 which makes the question relevant.

would Pedroia even haved missed the game for it if there was not a complication with the pregnancy early in the summer?
I don't think he would have.

You can't blame a guy for wanting to be there but when there is that much money involved you also have to live up to those obligations to a reasonable degree.

Baseball has 162 games compared to football's 16, which makes it less of an issue if a player misses one game, or even a couple of games.

I agree. there is no way that TB misses a game when the baby is due. Not gonna happen absent some serious complications with the pregnancy.

Besides, what's he gonna do but stand there and get in the way?

I was there for the birth of my first two kids. The third one my wife went solo. I was very happy with that decision on her part. :cool:

This is Tom Brady we're talking about. Maybe if he was the one giving birth... even then, the injury report would list him as probable, due to childbirth.

Pfft. This is Tom Brady we're talking about. He can assist the doctors during halftime in the locker room.

Not to detract from this fascinating discussion, before the news breaks that Belichick already has a gameplan featuring Edelman running the wildcat just to cover this contingency, but all the Brazilian women I know have had scheduled cesarians. It's just the way they do things down there. (Fancy, private Brazilian hospitals have a 93% cesarian rate.)

If anybody's seriously (come on, seriously?) worried about this, there is precedent for how births of Patriots players' kids are handled. Doesn't anybody remember Kraft putting Tully Banta-Cain on his private plane so he could rush to meet his newborn son...after the game?

There's your answer.

I'm not sure I agree with this. Tom & Giselle live in the Back Bay during the season. When they are in Cali, its b/c of Tom's son, and when they are in NYC, its b/c Giselle has a home there and I imagine the majority of her work is there. I'm sure pregnancy will change the scope of the work she does. But given they spend their fall & winter months in Boston, I'd guess she'd go to MGH.

Which is all besides the point. If it really came down to it, it's all up to Brady & the coaching staff whether he'd play in the game, and the likely decision is that he'd play.

Mmm ... out-geeked again! I knew that it was someone but I'd completely forgotten it was TBC.
