The unthinkable has happened.
Tom Brady went down.
Damn! We don't have any confirmation of anything yet, but the injury to Tom didn't look good. I wouldn't be surprised if he was put on injured reserve and was done for the season. That looked like it could have been an ACL tear.
For years it's been a mantra around here: "God forbid that Tom goes down." I hope Matt Cassel can step up. He did okay today, but I doubt he can bring us to the Promised Land.
Tom may be out a significant portion of the season, out all year, or be back next week. Don't know anything yet. *shrugs*
It was such a beautiful day for football, too! Perfect New England autumn day. Hanna had come and gone and the post-storm day was gorgeous.
We had some good plays today but there was a definite pall over the game. It was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop when Tom went down clutching his knee.
Until there's some official word (as in he's done for the season), BB will just say he's 'day-to-day'. Can't get much out of the Foxboro Kremlin about injuries! ;)
Damn, damn, damn!
