|Tom Brady picked off once, throws TD in first preseason game |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/15/14) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally got his first taste of preseason action Friday night at home against Philadelphia.
Brady was sharp early on until he was intercepted by Cary Williams for a touchdown on the opening drive of the game. He bounced back with a 15-yard back-shoulder pass to Kenbrell Thompkins in the end zone. He worked two series with the first-team offense and completed 8 of 10 pass attempts for 81 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.
|Tom Brady to sit, Ryan Mallett to start at Washington |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/7/14) The Patriots will rest quarterback Tom Brady tonight at Washington and will start backup Ryan Mallett instead, a source told the Boston Herald. This will be only the fourth time in Brady's career as the Pats' starter where he'll sit out the team's opening preseason game. Brady is not believed to be injured.
The paper believes that if Mallett looks good this preseason that he could end up being part of a trade.
|Tom Brady's favorite receiver is still Julian Edelman |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/4/14) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit 11 of 14 passes in Monday's joint practice with the Redskins, and his favorite receiver was Julian Edelman, reports the Boston Globe. At one point Brady found Edelman on three straight throws.
Edelman caught a team-high 105 passes last year. Tight end Rob Gronkowski did not participate in the joint practice as the team manages his comeback from an ACL tear.
|Tom Brady relies on Gronkowski |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/26/14) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady relies quite heavily on tight end Rob Gronkowski, reports ESPN. It will help Brady tremendously if Gronkowski plays 16 games coming off last year's torn ACL.
Gronkowski played seven games last season. The report says Brady completed 64.1 percent of his passes in the games Gronkowski played and 57.6 percent in the others.
Brady also targeted Gronkowski 66 times during that period, 17 more than any other Patriot.
|QB coach working on Tom Brady's mechanics |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(6/23/14) Tom Brady's private coach, Tom House, said he noticed several mechanical flaws in the veteran's performance last year.
"As he’s getting a little older you lose a little strength, you lose a little flexibility," House told the Boston Globe. "And what was happening was he was noticing that his accuracy and his long ball weren’t what they were three or four years ago. So we ran him through the computer, compared him to the models we have created for movement efficiency, and there were really, really small things that were causing his issues."
Brady was decent but not spectacular for the Patriots last year, completing 60.5 percent of his passes for 4,343 yards and 25 touchdowns with 11 interceptions.
"His front side was a little too rotational," House said. "He wasn’t maintaining his torque long enough.
"One of the things that we’ve learned about quarterbacking -- it’s not the length of the stride, it’s the timing of the stride. Tom is long and lanky," House said. "If Tom has an issue, he gets a little long. ... That’s one of the things that we focus on when we analyze Tom every year and we maintain during the season, is how quick does he get into the foot stride?"
NFL's 10 most interesting: Romo (again!), Manziel to ride roller coaster
When picking the NFL's 10 most interesting players, it's easy to start in Dallas, where Tony Romo produces for a team with leaky defense, and gets blamed for the failures. In Cleveland, Johnny Manziel is starting what looks like a career more about perception than what he can do on the field.
Most interesting players: These guys make covering the NFL a blast
Brandon Marshall is a natural speaker. Jared Allen builds houses. Tom Brady is married to a supermodel. They're just a few of our 10 most interesting players.
2014 Draft Prep: 12-team standard draft
2014 Draft Prep: QB tiers, 2.0
So when push comes to shove, how are you going to address the quarterback position on Draft Day? Our Dave Richard touches up his tiers for the position one final time.
Tom Brady, not Peyton Manning, tops preseason All-Kirwan Team at QB
Tom Brady does more with less than any other QB in the NFL, so he gets the nod as the top quarterback. Jimmy Graham, fresh off a new contract, is the tight end.
|Is Tom Brady still a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback? That's what owners want to know coming into this season. He finished No. 13 in Fantasy points last year in a standard league, but prior to that he was a Top 3 Fantasy quarterback for three years in a row. But things have changed for Brady. Wes Welker and Aaron Hernandez are gone, and Rob Gronkowski is having trouble staying on the field and is coming off a torn ACL. Julian Edelman stayed as a free agent, and the Patriots should get better production from Danny Amendola and a healthy Shane Vereen, along with the addition of Brandon LaFell. And the young receivers in Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins should continue to improve. But the Patriots were at their best toward the end of last season when they became a dominant running team. Brady only had six games with 20 or more Fantasy points, and he finished with 15 points or less in eight games. Still, once you get past the elite quarterbacks in Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, it's hard to argue Brady can't continue to be in that next tier. We would still draft Brady as a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, and the best part about him this season is you can draft him in Round 4 or later (his Average Draft Position was No. 27 overall in 2013). We hope a healthy Gronkowski will help Brady return to dominance this year.
