DROP IT ???
Hey, another bigshot who thinks they should determine what gets talked about. Of course, since you were an avid fan when the Pat's were the laughingstock of the NFL & maybe even sat on the cold hard bleacher seats of the old stadium for so many years, your thoughts & opinions are more valuable than others to the point of ORDERING the OP to DROP IT & stop posting in a thread THEY STARTED.
The OP has a valid point worthy of some debate. NOBODY ON THIS BOARD IS A COACH, OUR OPINIONS DON'T MATTER TO ANYONE BUT OURSELVES.
If Brady takes a big sack and lands hard on that shoulder it could be game over for him. We could head into the playoffs with Hoyer behind center. Hopefully THAT won't happen, but IF it did, EVERYONE would be saying they should NEVER have played Brady w/the 2nd seed and a bye week wrapped up
However, we KNOW BB plays EVERY game to win. They are ALL valuable to him if for no other reason than full pads, full speed, full contact practice. He doesn't pull starters until the game is almost over regardless of the score and I'm sure Brady shares his philosophy.
The little video they showed of Brady in practice that I saw showed him nursing a very limp left arm. He wasn't moving it at all when he threw the ball. If they have a patchwork O line like last week, it could get ugly. Obviously, since I am NOT a coach, I have no say in the matter, but ... I would see how it goes and pull him if the O line can't keep him relatively clean OR, if they can get up big in the first half, pull him at half time. Maybe they could dish out a heavy helping of Ridley, although they hand it off w/the non throwing arm
The last thing we want to see is Brady curled up on the field holding his shoulder & the medical staff is running on to the field. Is the game THAT important???
