Thread: Brady or Bledsoe?
Brady or Bledsoe?
I'm sure many of you are aware of the fact that Tom Brady has been named the starter for the Patriots this Sunday. This surprised me in a way, as a high ankle sprain is difficult to heal, and usually takes more time. Mike Martz even commented a couple days ago that he assumed Bledsoe would be named the starter. Do you think the Patriots are making a mistake by benching a healthy Bledsoe, or do you think they're better off with Brady leading the bunch? They also have the option of using both.
Actually, this turned out pretty good for the Rams. Bledsoe poses a bigger risk to the Rams D than does Brady. Mobility is not that important against the Rams, accuracy is. Brady is out there not to lose a game for the Pats, he dosen't have the ability to win a game by himself like Bledsoe does.
High risk means high reward, and playing it close like this smells like trouble for the Pats.

I also think this will go in the Rams favor. A weak ankle does provide limited mobility - not good when you have a swarming D like ours.
Also don't forget about the "Turf" factor with a weak ankle! I smell trouble brewing.
By the way for some comical reading you may want to look at the Paties website. One writer is giving it to the Pates with through the special teams....please tell me they've got more than that up their sleeves....
To quote the writer..."The Rams should be worried. Oh yeah. They should be worried all right."

Good point, Blankman71

does it matter?
I really don't think that Brady starting matters. I truly believe that it will be like 24-6 at halftime and we will see Bledsoe to start the 2nd half. I think the idea will be that the old grizzled vet will attempt to lead the Pats back in the 2nd half. Good story line, but it won't work.
