Tom Brady hurts left shoulder, stays in game

INDIANAPOLIS -- It's only something to watch right now, but it's not good news for the Patriots that Brian Hoyer began warming up after Tom Brady took a nasty sack on third down with just under six minutes left in the third quarter.

Brady came to the sideline, and indicated that his head and shoulder -- the left one that's bothered him previously -- were banged up. He began talking to doctors, Hoyer threw about three passes and then the doctors left him alone.

The Giants brought a three-man rush on the play in question, got pressure on Brady and the Pats quarterback started to take off and run for the first down. When he realized that wasn't happening, he tried to drop back in the pocket but Justin Tuck took him down in a crumpled heap.

On the previous play, Brady threw his first interception in 16 attempts, leaving his Super Bowl record at 16-straight completed passes. (He'd previously broken Joe Montana's mark of 13.)

We don't want to presume too much, either, but on the next drive, Brady threw an interception when he badly underthrew Rob Gronkowski on what would've been a New England touchdown.

It's hard to imagine a totally healthy Brady missing that throw.

SUPRISED A 15 YRD. ROUGHING THE PASSER WASN`T CALLED! KNOWING HOW THE NFL SUCKS BRADY d*CK
With the development of Rodgers, Eli, Stafford, Brees and Cam Newton, I don't think they care anymore about pandering to Brady. It actually makes no sense to hitch their wagon to Brady at this point. He's still a fantastic QB, but these other guys seem to be better than him now, and they're younger too. Eli has bitch slapped him twice in SBs now, with regular season wins as well. Brady was able to beat Peyton, but Peyton's little brother is getting revenge for him.

Maybe those cameras did help after all. They can't get it done without them, it really makes you wonder.

Back to the drawing board Belichick.  Still no Super Bowls since Spygate.

If he was too hurt to play then get out of the game. He should try playing behind the Steelers O-line.  Go home and cry to GB.
