Tom Brady didn’t play in the Patriots’ first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t ready.
Just look at him on the sidelines. Yeah, he doesn’t have a football, but look at his agility and awareness in front of all the imaginary defenders coming at him. Put him in, coach! Julian Edelman seems to enjoy it.
Brady kind of looks like a glitch from the latest edition of Madden. We hope they get a patch for this before the release date, as cool as this kind of looks.
Glennon struggled, and that’s the nicest thing we can say about it. He completed just two of eight passes for 20 yards. Trubisky, on the other hand, came in with 1:42 remaining in the first half and ran the team’s two-minute drill with ease.
He looked in command of the offense and hit veteran Victor Cruz on a 2-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds on the clock:
In the second half, he looked comfortable and accurate throwing on the run, executing a 75-yard scoring drive on the Bears’ first possession:

Glennon wasn’t nearly so lucky. His second pass of the game was a pick-six. Poor line play didn’t help, but he never got into a rhythm, and it showed in his quarterback rating, which was zero:
But to understand how the NFL reached the point that it accused the NFLPA of victim blaming, we have to first rewind the clock a little bit. Early Wednesday morning, Yahoo! Sports published a report that said Elliott’s accuser, an ex-girlfriend, spoke to a friend via text about the possibility of blackmailing the running back with sex videos involving herself and Elliott.
