The injury to Tom Brady will cast a pall over this season for some time to come if not for the entire season. Althought thew offensive unit of the Patriots is very good, they need their helmsman to carry it forward clamly and strongly in the face of their adversaries charges. The support behind Brady does not carry the same weight, demeanor, skill, confidence, and the like to carry the team to where i needs to be. I am hoping that order can be restored in the AFC where not only did the Patriots have a very damaging blow delivered to them, but the othe stalwarts of the AFC (in recent years) also suffered highly improbable losses (Indianapolis and San Diego). Only Pittsburgh seems to be on course this year.
The repots, although unconfirmed last night, where that this is a season ending injury for Tom Brady (torn ACL) but there are no confirmation until the MRI that is scheduled for tody is done. Nevertheless, if he is not out for the season, it is anticipated that he will be out for some time. Time will tell at the resilience of th rest of the team to bounce back and see them reestablish themselves into the power struggle at the top of the AFC.
