Patriots’ Josh McDaniels doesn’t know anything about Tom Brady’s potential knee injury
There have been rumors circulating around the league that the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady might’ve been injured this season, and the team’s staff had been hiding it.
The Patriots are known for doing anything they can get away with to win. Whether or not they’re being honest remains to be seen. Many analysts have noticed a change in his mechanics. But offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels doesn’t think there’s been an injury or a change, via Pro Football Talk.
“I don’t know what you’re referring to. We talk about a lot of things each week but there’s nothing — he’s one of the, if not the, most fundamentally sound passers of the football that I think there’s ever been… We work on a lot of things every week, part of that’s fundamentals, part of that’s understanding the defense, part of that’s footwork, part of that’s our game plan and the design that we have in place that week. There’s a lot of things that go into having success on an individual play or in an individual game, many of which can be attributed to a lot of factors. So again, what matters is how we continue to try to work and perform as we go forward.”
The Patriots this past week completely dominated the Los Angeles Chargers. It was a very unexpected outcome. The Chargers simply could not stop Brady from hitting his targets and driving down the field. They ended up winning by a score of 41-28.
New England will now face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game, looking forward to a potential Super Bowl appearance.
