  1. I'm gonna be the first one to "go there" and suggest that Brady may be done, period.  This isn't because I want him to be -- on the contrary, I think Tom Brady is an inspiration to everyone and I hope he does make it back next year.  But a torn ACL is one thing.  A torn ACL and MCL?  Even with the rehab that knee is never going to be 100% again, and if Brady does make it back onto the field his playstyle is going to be quite different.  Blitzing linebackers and safetys will know Brady won't be as mobile and will take advantage.

    Of course, if Brady does make it back and somehow does retain his mobility, that'll just add to his growing legend.

  2. Man really have to be on board with you on this one, two ligaments. I mean look at the last QB that it happened to, Culpepper retired after battling rehab for two years after he was supposed to be ready. Brady was pretty immobile compared to most Qb's in the league right now and after this well, let's just hope he can recover better than his predecessors.

  3. Besides the fact that Culpepper's injury was worse than Brady's (ACL, MCL and PCL as opposed to the AC/MC duo), Brady's only real advantage over Culpepper is seven months and a Brazilian supermodel, unfortunately.  One might argue that he's displayed better overall health, and he's got the services of the premier NFL organization behind him, so that might help too...  Yeah, looking at all that, perhaps the outlook for Saint Tom is not so grim after all.
