The New England Patriots may be the AFC
East champions for the 10th consecutive year, but haters still talk
about Tom Brady’s physical condition. The quarterback was added to the Patriots’
injury report throughout the season, and some said that he is treating his MCL
injury. Well, we all noticed that Brady does not look like himself. One of
Brady’s former teammates, Rob Ninkovich, is not buying this talk.
“I don’t know if he’s hurt or if he’s just getting older. Everyone seems to have this false sense that Tom is invincible, but he’s 41 years old, playing a position where you get 300-pound guys landing on you, hitting you, big guys all around you. It gets a little hairy in there. I just think that we’re seeing Tom slow down a little bit,” Rob Ninkovich said.
“I see a guy that just doesn’t want to get hit. When you’re in a game where that’s the name
of the game and getting hit all the time, I think he’s at the point of his
career where he’s like, ‘All right, I need to get myself ready for the
playoffs, I can’t take unnecessary hits,’ in a game where they pretty much had
it in hand.”
The quarterback says
he is feeling great at the moment, and refused to respond questions about his
health. We have nothing to worry about as long as he hits the field for
Tom Brady completed
13 of his 24 passes for 126 yards, two interceptions and a touchdown in Sunday’s
game against the Buffalo Bills at Gillete Stadium. The Patriots are playing the
New York Jets next Sunday, and that will be their last game before the
postseason begins. How will things turn out for Brady at the end of the season?
Let’s wait and find out.
