Brady not thinking of ’08 injury as he prepares for Chiefs

first_img“I don’t know if it helps. You’re aware of how good he is,” Sutton said. “When you play (271) games, pass for 61,000 yards — or whatever he has — you’re playing against a football player, a quarterback that’s really talented, that has a great skillset — great command of his offense in all regards. It’s just a huge challenge.”But even at 40, Brady said opening a season in prime time still offers the same excitement as it did early in his career.“Everyone’s pretty amped up for this one,” he said. “It’s been waiting a long time for this. … It’s a big game and it’s an important one.” Federer calls medical timeout ‘precaution’; del Potro next “Yeah, I didn’t think about that,” Brady said Monday. “Time flies.”What’s also a distant memory is the unfamiliar situation he found himself in last season when he was forced to sit out the first four games of 2016 after accepting his four-game “Deflategate” punishment.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBrady brushed off that disappointment by capturing his fifth Super Bowl in February. Now he’s happy just to be thinking about football and how to get the best of a Kansas City team that was the AFC’s No. 2 seed in the playoffs last season.It’s a unique challenge for a Patriots offense that will have several new options for the 40-year-old quarterback to utilize as he tries to deal with a defense that ranked first in the NFL last season with 33 takeaways. With minimal new film of Kansas City’s starters to dissect at this point, Brady is expecting to see plenty of wrinkles from what he called an “explosive” unit.One of the players he singled out was cornerback Marcus Peters. Peters tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions during the 2015 regular season. He followed that up by tying for second in the league with six picks in 2016.Brady also is expecting to be challenged by safety Eric Berry and the active linebacker duo of Derrick Johnson and Justin Houston.“They have playmakers,” Brady said. “When they’re roaming around, you can’t just stare them down right where you want to throw the ball. It’s always a little cat and mouse with safeties and cornerbacks. … That’s why they force that many turnovers.”But Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said familiarity alone won’t be enough to get Brady off his game.ADVERTISEMENT Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding LATEST STORIES Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST PLAY LIST 01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST00:50Trending Articles02:02Chief Justice Peralta vows to lead by example, bares 10-point program01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH MOST READ LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
