Tom Brady had two awkward slides in Philadelphia yesterday, digging up big chunks of grass when his knee brace got caught in the turf.
“We talk about sliding. Yeah, we probably need to talk about that a little bit more,” Bill Belichick said today in Foxboro.
Brady joked with Dennis and Callahan on WEEI about how bad he looked.
“That was pretty pathetic. Maybe I should go over to Fenway and have those guys teach me how to slide. But I’ve got this big-ass knee brace on my left knee. When I slide on grass, it just digs into the turf. There was a huge clump of grass that came up. Maybe I should slide on my right knee.”
It’s OK with Belichick if Brady gets a few tips from the pros.
“We’ll look into that, ” he said. “See if we can get Dustin [Pedroia] to spend a little time with him.”
As good fans of the Patriots know, Brady was an 18th round draft pick by the Montreal Expos in 1995. He was a catcher at Junípero Serra High School in San Mateo, Calif.
