On the Sidelines

As is typical in the last pre-season game, Tom Brady spent the night on the sidelines in last night's game against the Giants. On the field; those trying to survive the last round of cuts. Even without their star QB, the Patriots won 27-20.

Baby Name Correction

As Tom Brady warms-up at practice on Tuesday, the rest of the world hears some news about his son's name. Bridget Moynahan, via her publicist, announced that the boy's name is "John Edward Thomas Moynahan", not "Jonathan Brady" as previously reported.

Well, that makes more sense. But the boy's initials "JET" irked more than a few Patriot fans.

The Name Fallout

Hot off the presses... a picture of Tom Brady at Monday's practice, as he and the world adjust to the reality of his new son. And even more shocking, his son's last name of "Brady" courtesy of Ms. Bridget Moynahan. Huh - did someone say "Brady"? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't give my baby the last name of the man who dumped me. Does that make Bridget a better baby-momma than me? Maybe. But I do "bitter" so well. It's practically my hallmark.

SNL Carnival Skit

This is an old skit recently posted on YouTube from Tom Brady's appearance on Saturday Night Live. Even if Tom can't act, it still makes me laugh. And of course, Rob Riggle is always good for a few chuckles.

Tom in Fine Form v Carolina

Tom Brady, proving once again the professional that he truly is, was able to put the stresses of his personal life behind last night, and deliver a 24-7 win against the Carolina Panthers.

As reported in the Boston Globe: "In two-plus quarters, Brady completed 17 of 22 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Brady led the Patriots to points on three of five possessions (six, if you count his first-half kneeldown) and one ended in a missed field goal. Brady was replaced by Matt Cassel with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter."

And as a side note, I'm hearing that the baby's name is Jonathan Brady.

Comments on Pre-Season

Personal dramas aside, Tom Brady took some time with the press to talk about what he needs to work on, what his team needs to work on, and his hopes for the upcoming season.

"I'm always excited about our potential, but the potential and the reality is something that's very different," said Brady. "I've heard over the last six months the expectations for this team and we can just throw the ball on whoever we want and run it and gain 450 yards a game. But it takes a lot. It takes a lot of guys coming together and finding a role and playing with toughness and effort.

"We've played two preseason games. We haven't played any regular-season games to really see where we're at. We've got two very valuable weeks coming up in order to get ready for our opener. The potential of the team, that's one thing, but really going out there to see what we can accomplish, starting in Week 1, is going to be what's most important."

More Baby Talk

Tom Brady breaks his silence after Friday's game and talks to the press. Once again, the dramas of his personal life and unborn baby are grabbing the spotlight:

"You realize when you come here you try to focus your attention and compartmentalize what you're doing so you can give this team what it needs because that's really what you sign up for when you come here," says Brady. He added "I'd hate to come in here and have my mind on 100 different things when that's not going to help this team at all. And then when I leave here I deal with that and my team takes ... a step backward."

A Changed Man

Are the stars aligning for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots for a killer season? Some in the press are theorizing that the combination of Tom's experience losing last season and his new wide receivers is creating "the perfect storm" for an unbeatable team.

"You've got to learn from the mistakes, but you can't dwell on them," Brady said of last season. "You have to use those as motivation, and I think you have a very motivated football team here. If we stay motivated and we continue to come out, work hard, listen to our coaches, be unselfish and do our own job it's going to be a successful year."

First Game Pre-Season Preview

So the first pre-season game didn't go so well for the Patriots against Tampa Bay (13-10 for Tampa), but Tom Brady had limited time and the entire game was played without Randy Moss.

"I'm looking forward to getting everybody back. We've had a bunch of guys out," Brady said, when asked about Moss. "We'll see what we're made of when we get out there and see what we can produce," Brady added. "Hopefully, it will turn out better than 0-for-2 drives, like we did tonight." Link to full article.

We're looking forward to it too, Tom.
