Pats’ Brady takes some air out of Tebow mania
Not long after New England’s 41-23 victory over the Broncos, a triumph which clinched the AFC East title for the Pats (11-3) and put them on track for a first-round playoff bye, I entered the visitors’ locker room and encountered Brady as he headed for the showers. Securing a white towel around his waist with his right hand and holding a shaving kit with his left, the future Hall of Famer stopped cold when I asked if he’d sensed, after Tebow’s late touchdown, that the game might be slipping away.
“I’ve been in a lot of big games, Mikey,” he said, looking me directly in the eye. “Games a lot bigger than this.”
In addition to reminding everyone that he gets texted by pro athletes, Mike Silver really wants you to know he's tight with Tom Brady.
We get it, Mikey. You're kind of a big deal.
