Report: Tom Brady will have foot surgery Thursday

Wednesday afternoon, multiple reports emerged about a foot injury that Tom Brady dealt with during the 2010 season. Unfortunately, it wasn't believed to provide a legitimate excuse for the Jets dominating the quarterback during their divisional-round matchup.

Now the Boston Herald reports that Brady will have foot surgery on Thursday afternoon at the Massachusetts and that the procedure, which may involve inserting a screw and is similar to something Red Sox second basemen Dustin Pedroida underwent, will be performed by Patriots team physician George Theodore.

The foot injury was first mentioned this season immediately prior to the Patriots beat down of the Steelers -- Brady was listed on the injury report and yet put up his most dominant performance of the 2010 season to date. After that, Brady rolled his way to a (very likely) second MVP award and there wasn't much made of the injury.

At least until the loss to the Jets set in and the Pats offseason began -- now there's ample speculation to occur whether or not Brady was bothered by the injury, and how much it will affect him going forward.

"Brady played much of this season with a stress fracture in his foot, but it did not affect his performance in the ' loss to the on Sunday, according to multiple media reports."

"Brady added that his shoulder was bruised during Sunday's loss ("They got me pretty good," he said), but said that he wasn't figuring on needing any surgeries this offseason"

-Respect to any Pat fans that call it a loss based on play not injury

And cue the idiots...... Here come the yahoos from all over the place saying "stop the excuses"..

First off.. Brady never said the injury affected him in the playoff loss. He has had this injury for several weeks. it's not a phantom surgery..

It's just a story about him having foot surgery,, not an excuse.. a lot of aholes have Brady derangement syndrome on here!

Not a shortage of morons on this board.

NO SUPER BOWL WINS SINCE CAUGHT CHEATING

The patsies won 3 super bowls by a total of 9 points BEFORE they were caught cheating.  That's a tiny margin, one so small that cheating can create it.  Argue all the subjective points that you like if it makes you feel better.  The facts show that since caught cheating, the patsies are a good regular season team and a weak playoff team.  Asterisks remain on the three tainted titles, if belicheat and broody are as good as patsies fans think they are, they haven't proven it yet...
