Tom Brady’s return to the gridiron was nothing short of successful in last night’s preseason contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. He racked up 100 yards passing with two touchdowns to one interception. Brady along with other New England starters left the game with an impressive 21-6 lead going into the second half. The game ended 27-25 in favor of the Patriots, after an impressive comeback by the Eagles in the third quarter.
Staff and fellow players are more than thrilled to see their star quarterback fully recovered. “I thought he was sharp,” said tight end Chris Baker who caught both TD passes from Brady. “He went out there and moved us up and down the field and put some points on the board.”
The Patriots are more than ready to take on the NFL this season and make their way back into the Super Bowl. Their next preseason game is scheduled for Thursday, August 20th at 7:30 pm against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens missed practice yesterday due to a sprained toe. He reportedly jammed it during a pre-season game against the Tennessee Titans last Sunday, and complained about later that night through his Twitter page. Owens wrote: “My toe is aching!” followed by a concerned face – “:-/” Head coach Dick Jauron said Bills camp was much quieter without their stand-out receiver present. “It was different,” said Jauron. “We know what kind of player he is and what kind of player he’s been his entire career, so when he’s not on the field, you’re aware of the fact.”
Hopefully Owens is able to take a couple of days and re-energize himself with T.O’s Honey Toasted Oats before Saturday’s pre-season game against Chicago. Buffalo’s first regular season game is set for September 14th at Gillette Stadium against the New England Patriots.

Auto-tune friendly R&B singer T-Pain and rapper Pitbull have just created a new version of the Miami Dolphins fight song. Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross also hired Margarita rocker Jimmy Buffett to create his own version. Both songs will be featured at Miami home games for the upcoming 2009/2010 season.
The original was created before the 1972 season when the team went on to post a perfect record. The song has served as a good luck charm for Miami fans and has been played for every game at Land Shark Stadium since then. Fans are unsure whether T-Pain or Buffett have gone away from the traditional music entirely, but regardless they seem to be going along with the tunes quite happily. The Dolphins will open up their season against the Atlanta Falcons on September 13th. They are not scheduled to match up against the New England Patriots until November 8th at Gillette Stadium.

Early last season New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went down with a severe knee injury, after Kansas City Chiefs defensemen Bernard Pollard fell into him. Matt Cassel, who took Brady’s place for the rest of the year landed a big contract with Pollard’s Chiefs for this upcoming season. During yesterday’s training camp practice Pollard thought he was about to be blocked, misread the play and stumbled right into Cassel. After practice Pollard commented on the reoccurrence, saying “I got to the sidelines after that play and I realized what happened. I thought, — OH MY GOD! It’s like a replay.”
Despite the same events taking place on that particular play, Cassel luckily did not come out injured. The Kansas City Chiefs will have their first test this Saturday in a pre-season match up against the Houston Texans at 7:00 pm.

New England Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady was able to showcase his acting abilities last night on HBO, appearing with Mark Wahlberg on the hit series Entourage. Brady and Wahlberg are introduced on the show as teammates of Vince in Drama for a charity golf tournament. Giants fan Turtle is also in attendance and can’t hold back from telling Tom his negative opinions of him. Brady’s golf swing hasn’t seemed to affect his knee this summer, reassuring fans that he is definitely back and healthy for the year. He is currently working hard at week two of Pats training camp, getting his team ready for their first preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles this Thursday, August 13th. Their first regular season game at Gillette is set for Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 pm against T.O. and the Buffalo Bills.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has conditionally reinstated Michael Vick, though he will not be able to play in a regular season game until week six. Though twelve teams have publicly voiced that they are not interested in signing the QB, the Patriots seem to be kicking the tires. USA Today, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, and many other sources are all reporting that Bill Belichick would like to use Vick in a single-wing formation; a wildcat offense that would benefit more from agility than from throwing ability. ESPN’s Dan Shanoff goes as far as to speculate that the Pats could be using Vick to test the efficacy of a wildcat offense before going all-in on drafting Florida Gators QB Tim Tebow. Given the Patriots reputation for rehabilitating players’ images, New England could be a good fit; and Tom Brady could use 5-10 snaps off per game as he recovers from major surgery.

Long time Patriot and three time superbowl champion Tedy Bruschi is mulling retirement after the 2009 season. The 36 year old is heading into his 14th year, all with the Patriots, and his age might be catching up with him. With his contract ending this year and young linebackers on the verge of playing (Gary Guyton, rookie Tyrone McKenzie), the Patriots might not sign Bruschi following the season. Bruschi acknowledges the situation that he is in and wants to play hard this season and assess the situation in the next offseason.

Rodney Harrison, the only player in NFL history to have more than 30 interceptions (34) and sacks (30.5) is calling it a career. During his 15 year career he was one of the most feared defensive backs; making the Pro Bowl twice and winning two Super Bowls with the New England Patriots. Harrison’s physical play was as classified by “dirty” by many, but Harrison insists he was just trying to get the job done. “People have called me a dirty player,” Harrison said to ESPN. “I’m a very passionate player. I also understand that this is not volleyball. This is a very violent, physical game, and if you hit someone in the mouth, they’re not going to be your friend.”
Harrison will join Tony Dungy as part of NBC’s NFL broadcast staff.
