--If it was that bad, would he be walking around airports and city streets (behind enemy lines!!) or would he have her come here for a day or two while he got extra treatment and kept the whole thing under wraps?The thought did cross my mind that Brady was playing mind games to get out of the Pro Bowl. But that's the least likely of the least likely explanations ...
--Wasn’t Brady hurt to the point that he was pulled from an AFC Championship only to return and orchestrate the team’s first Super Bowl win?
--Least likely, but most fun to consider: Brady is playing mind games. Can you think of circumstances that would make a gag like this work any better? Single most valuable player in the game, Super Bowl coming up, he’s hobbling around NYC when the Giants are the opponent?The NY media is the perfect pawn in this game. They’ll have Giant fans thinking Brady’s going in for an amputation and the game is being cancelled. The NFL’s just going to mail the trophy to New Jersey New York.
Seriously? It’s a reason for concern. It has to be. But there’s two weeks of healing available and whatever is ailing him was something he played through last week.
