Bill Belichick better hope Brady’s wife can get more prayers for the Patriots. By now everyone has had to hear of Gisele Bündchen sending out an e-mail asking for her friends and family to pray for (Tommy) her husband Tom Brady. The way the game started on New England’s first possession it doesn’t look like Gisele’s friend’s and family did their job. Belichick better hope Bündchen can get to an internet cafe to send another plea for prayers.
On New England’s first Possession Brady gets called for intentional ground in the end zone giving the Giants a 2-0 lead in the game. It was the longest pass I have ever seen for a intentional grounding call. Brady had problems trying to complete a pass. On third and four from the red zone Brady had his pass batted down by a Giants line man. Then on the first play of the next possession Brady had his nest pass batted down. Made me wonder where is the real Tom Brady. With 8:24 in the half the Patriots had to punt it back to the Giants.
Tom Brady didn’t look like the Tom Brady we are all use to seeing him. He couldn’t get anything going in the first half. Brady is lucky that the New England defense has been able to stop Manning and the Giants from destroying the Patriots in the first half. At one point Eli Manning was 9 for nine. With four minutes to go in the first half the Giants pined Brady back on the four yard line. On the first play of the drive New England gets penalized half the distance to the goal line. Brady hit Grankowski to get the ball out to the 35 for Gronkowski’s first big play of the game. With 2:00 to go the Patriots had the ball on their 36 as Brady walked over to talk to Belichick.
Brady is finally looking like the Brady we know with 2 minutes left before the half. He was able to find some of his receivers and with 29 seconds and the ball on the Giants 27 Brady finds Woodhead to move the Chains and step out of bounds to stop the clock. The Brady finds woodhead to get the ball to the Giants 4 then Brady handed the ball off to Woodhead who got tackled behind the line of scrimage to lose about 4 on the play with 15 seconds left.
On 3 and 3 Brady had all the time in the world and he would find Woodhead in the end zone to finally get a touchdown to take a 10-9 lead with 8 seconds to the half.
Who Knows maybe Gisele sent some tweets and already got the Help Tom Brady needed.
