Tom Brady struggles in season-opening loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not at his sharpest in Week 1 against the Dolphins Sunday, a 33-20 loss.

Brady threw the ball 56 times in the game, completing 29 of those passes for just 249 yards. That is his lowest yardage total for any game with 50-plus attempts in his career; his previous low was 288 yards on 52 attempts against Buffalo a year ago.

Brady did toss one touchdown in the game, a 6-yarder to Rob Gronkowski in the second quarter, but managed little else from that point on. He was under constant pressure and lost a pair of fumbles in the second half, while completing just 10 of 27 passes for 62 yards after halftime.

The offensive line had trouble keeping Brady upright for long stretches Sunday, which hurt his effectiveness. He will hope for better protection in Week 2 against the Vikings next Sunday.


Calf injury can't keep Tom Brady out for Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is active and in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Week 1, despite being listed as questionable for the game with a calf injury.

Tom Brady strikes twice in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady found the end zone twice despite sitting out a series Friday night against the Panthers.

Brady worked the first two drives before head coach Bill Belichick pulled him out of the game in favor of Ryan Mallett with 5:33 remaining in the first quarter. The move was part of an experiment for Belichick, who wanted his backups to be prepared for emergency situations throughout the season.

Through two series he compiled 24 yards through the air while completing 4 of 6 passes. Mallett worked only one series with the first unit. Brady returned and found Shane Vereen on a wheel route for a 40-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He hooked up again with Vereen for a 6-yard strike early in the third.

Brady played into the third quarter and finished with 204 yards through the air while completing 17 of 21 passes. He added two touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 138.9 passer rating.

Jimmy Garoppolo leaps over Ryan Mallett in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo leaped over Ryan Mallett in the depth chart and was used as the first backup during Friday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Garoppolo entered the game for Tom Brady on the third drive of the game and fired a 15-yard touchdown pass to James Develin. On the ensuing drive, he hooked up with Brandon LaFell for a 4-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 72 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished with a 108.3 quarterback rating.

Mallett started the third quarter in place of Garoppolo and scored on a 6-yard run in his first drive. He then fired a 17-yard touchdown to Brian Tyms, who leaped over the defender to make the grab. He completed 7 of 11 pass attempts for 92 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked once and had four rushes for 9 yards.

Tom Brady picked off once, throws TD in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) 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.


Ryan Mallett sits out again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett missed practice for the second straight day Monday with what is believed to be a knee injury, reports the Boston Herald.

Ryan Mallett disappoints in potential trade showcase


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Thursday night's preseason opener against the Redskins reportedly was meant as a trade showcase for Ryan Mallett, the Patriots' fourth-year quarterback. Mallett didn't stir up much interest.

He played the entire first half, going 5 for 12 for 55 yards and leading New England to zero points. Mallett's highly inaccurate performance means he might not enter the season as Tom Brady's backup. Rookie Jimmy Garoppolo is pushing for the No. 2 job.


Tom Brady says he feels better than he did at 25


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has started 89 straight games, said he's feeling better at age 36 than he did at 25, reports Sports Illustrated.

"It’s hard to explain this to people, but the commitment I make, in terms of keeping my body in shape and my nutrition right, should make me healthy," he said. "I feel better today than when I was 25, and I know that’s hard for people to believe, but I do. I work at it. Basically, I work all offseason to prepare my body to not get hurt. I can’t help the team if I’m on the sidelines. I’ve got to be durable."

Brady ranked 13th in Fantasy scoring among quarterbacks last season.


Patriots draft QB Jimmy Garoppolo


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 62 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois.

Garoppolo will be No. 3 on the depth chart for the Patriots behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. He could be the eventual replacement for Brady if Mallett isn't with the Patriots beyond 2014 when he's a free agent.

A four-year starter, Garoppolo ran a unique offense that combined an up-tempo approach with a pure read philosophy at Eastern Illinois. The end result was a slew of plays week after week -- and the stats to match. Garoppolo threw for 13,156 passing yards and 118 touchdowns over four seasons and impressively had just nine interceptions over 568 pass attempts.

He's considered a smart, big enough quarterback with a good arm and a very fast release, but questions about his experience playing in the FCS rather than the FBS cloud his future. The Patriots have time to find out with Brady not going anywhere any time soon.


Tom Brady's lack of bombs not all his fault


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 22 of 75 last season on throws that traveled at least 20 yards, a horrific 29 percent. But MassLive.com claims Brady's receivers often let him down.

The website blames "receiver error" for 20 of those 53 misses, citing eight drops, seven wrong routes and "five other miscellaneous incidents that appeared to be the fault of the receiver." Wipe out those mistakes, the report said, and Brady's accuracy rate on deep throws climbs to a more respectable 40 percent.


Report: Patriots want 2nd rounder for Ryan Mallett


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) With Patriots quarterback Ryan Mallett entering the last year of his rookie deal, it's possible he gets traded, reports NESN.com. New England wants a second-round pick in return, according to NFL Network.

That seems very steep for a guy who's struggled in preseason action and thrown four regular-season passes in his career.


Players poll: Tom Brady best clutch quarterback in NFL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) The quarterback NFL players would want under center with two minutes left in a close Super Bowl is not playing in the 2014 Super Bowl. Rather, it's Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, according to a survey of about 320 players.

Brady tallied 128 votes to easily beat Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who was followed in the voting by Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay), Drew Brees (New Orleans) and Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh).


Tom Brady off target in AFC title game loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed at least three deep throws in the 26-16 AFC Championship Game loss at Denver. He finished 24 of 38 for 277 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.

In the first quarter, Brady overthrew a wide-open Julian Edelman on a bomb. He continued to play erratically, and he was hurt by his team's inability to run the ball. New England rushed for 11 yards in the first half, 64 total.

Brady finally led a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter, capping it with a 7-yard strike to Edelman. He ran for a 5-yard score with 3:13 remaining.

Brady will turn 37 a month before the 2014 season.


Report: Brady hurt throwing hand in October


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered ligament damage in his throwing hand in October and "had to fight through it," reports NFL Network, adding that the injury has healed. NESN said the report explains "what was causing the signal-caller's hand to swell."

In four October games, Brady threw two touchdowns against four interceptions and twice completed fewer than 50 percent of his throws.

Tom Brady not participating at start of Wednesday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder) was unseen as his team began its Wednesday practice session. There has been no indication that his availability for the Sunday AFC title game in Denver is threatened, but his weekly press conference was curiously moved from Wednesday to Friday.

Tom Brady does little in blowout win over Colts


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady became the first player to reach 6,000 postseason passing yards during Saturday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Colts.

Brady wasn't asked to do much as the ground game produced six touchdowns for New England. He completed 13 of 25 passes for 198 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a 43-22 victory.

Nine Patriots probable for clash with Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) Nine Patriots are listed as probable for the Sunday clash against visiting Indianapolis.

The defensive probables are cornerback Kyle Arrington (groin), linebacker Dane Fletcher (groin), safeties Devin McCourty (concussion) and Steve Gregory (finger/knee).


Tom Brady takes back seat to backs in defeat of Bills


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did more handing off of the ball than throwing it Sunday against Buffalo. If it wasn't broken, he didn't need to fix it.

Brady watched running backs LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley run over, around and through the Bills. He threw only to keep the defense honest, completing his only touchdown pass on the first play of the fourth quarter, a 5-yarder to Shane Vereen. He finished 14 of 24 for 122 yards, one touchdown and one interception. That yard total was his lowest since Week 8 against Miami.

A quarterback who usually gets many receivers involved, Brady found just four. The absence of tight end Rob Gronkowski and the loss of Danny Amendola during the game to injuries limited his options. Wide receiver Julian Edelman received 11 of his 22 targets.


Tom Brady cleared for Week 17 game

Tom Brady still a fine Fantasy play despite tough matchup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Fantasy owners should not be alarmed by the comparative day off Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took last Sunday to end his run of explosive performances. His lack of passing attempts was reflective only of the lopsided score in the shockingly easy defeat of Baltimore.

Brady completed 14 of 26 passes for just 171 yards against the Ravens, but was averaging an outrageous 45 attempts in his previous six games, during which time he averaged 371 yards and threw 14 touchdown passes. One game in which he was not required to throw much does not constitute an end to his hot streak.

Week 17 foe Buffalo is playing well enough to hang around and keep Brady throwing. Though the Bills rank fifth in the NFL in passing yards allowed (3,156) and boast a tremendous pass rush, they have given up 27 scores through the air and yielded 288 yards and two touchdowns to Brady in Week 1.

The midseason slump is a distant memory for Brady. He has returned to the status of premier Fantasy quarterback. And though the Bills are coming off a shutout, they don't pose enough of a defensive threat to force Fantasy owners to consider removing Brady from any lineup. Actually, nobody does.
