Tom Brady is back. It’s been nearly 18 months since the deflated football scandal.  It has been a long time waiting for his return to the field. Brady was served a four game suspension this season due to the deflategate investigation as he was exiled from the team for the last couple of weeks. Brady couldn’t practice with the team or have any kind of communication activities with his teammates. Now he can continue his legendary career trying to bring home another Vince Lombardi Trophy to New England. Brady is returning at no better time after the team suffered a 16-0 shut out lost to the Buffalo Bills last week. Brady is a true leader and he will pick up the pieces to jell this team back to a winning team. Not that this Patriots team was doing bad without Brady but with him back orchestrating the offense will see more wideouts getting the ball. Brady will put this team back in rhythm. With an unhealthy Rob Gronkowski, we will see more of Martellus Bennett showcasing his talent. He came to New England to catch balls and will have to produce to help this team win. Brady is not no Jay Cutler so he has no excuses to not play to his full potential.  We will also see more production from Chris Hogan who is a really good receiver. Many wonder who he was when he first signed with New England but we will see more of him moving forward with Brady in the lineup. James White, Bennett, and Chris Hogan will benefit a lot from Brady. They will get targeted more. It’s been a slow start this season from James White. He is a receiving running  back who hasn’t played in a lot of snaps so far this season. Belichick is probably saving him for Brady. The Patriots have leaned heavily on running back LeGarrette Blount during Tom Brady’s absence. Blount is now limited With Hip Ailment so will must see more of White in the backfield catching balls from Brady.

Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett did a great job keeping this team from tanking. The Patriot is the number one seed in their division at 3-1. Nobody predicted the Patriots being this good without Brady. They proved to their critics that they are more than a one man team. They played with adversity in their first 3 games. They dealt with injuries of key players on offense and defense. This week in practice the team was excited to see number 12 throwing the ball around. Danny Amendola comment on Brady’s return “Tom Brady is ‘going to be juiced up’ vs. Browns” The New England Patriots take on the Cleveland Browns in week 5. The Browns are in trouble. Tom Brady is going to torch this defense. The Browns this season are already 0-4 to start the season, things aren’t progressing for them. They lost first string QB Robert Griffin III and second string QB Josh McCown due to shoulder injuries. Cody Kessler is the next man up at quarterback. Browns are gearing up to start rookie Cody Kessler versus Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. In the Belichick-era, New England holds an 11-5 record verse rookie quarterbacks. Bill Belichick is a defensive genius and he will shut down this Browns offensive. This is going to be an exciting game. Football is officially back. This team will feed off of Brady’s energy. Another guy this teamed missed is defensive end Rob Ninkovich. He was served a four-game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance, he is also coming back from a bad injury from last year. The Patriots are puzzling together the sky is the limit. This is a Super Bowl contending team. This roster can get the job done. Let’s see if New England succeeds heading forward.
