At least part of the Dolphins' success can be attributed to their assault on Brady. They hit him at every available opportunity. They hit him square in the chest to avoid stupid penalties, but they hit him. I think the final count was 6 knockdowns, but there were various other hits as well.
I think the most telling one was the one on Moss' TD. It was early in the game, and Brady went to the locker room for a few minutes. He was back before the Pats next drive, but the Pats reported him as "questionable to return." Of course, that's nonsense, but he did not look quite himself. In fact, he is not the same QB he was in 2007. Maybe its the leg injury, maybe its more. Who knows?
And CBS was blathering on about his ring finger. He hurt it. It was black and blue. Boo hoo.
But I loved the shot of him holding his hand. Is he giving us the finger?
....or is the whole injury because his wife hit him with a golf club. Oh sorry, wrong sport.
