Despite breaking a finger in his throwing arm in December, Tom Brady is ready and raring to go for the New England Patriots in the NFL playoffs, which begin this weekend.
The three-time Super Bowl winner feels in good shape, and he gave Patriot fans a timely boost ahead of their game with the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.
“I’m feeling really good now. I’m feeling really good,’’ said the number 12 in his weekly spot on WEEI radio. “Everyone breaks bones over the course of the year. I’m feeling pretty good. This is the best I’ve felt in a while.’’
Brady will have to be on the top of his form as the Patriots will be lining up without one of their most potent offensive weapons, Wes Welker, who injured his knee against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
"You can't replace him, there's no doubt about that," continued Brady. "We're going to evolve a little bit as an offense now. It was a very Wes Welker-oriented offense.”
However, Brady thing that his loss could throw the Ravens ahead of the game this weekend.
"Maybe part of the advantage is Baltimore doesn't really know what they're going to see from us now. We're going to have to shift focus and they're really not sure where that focus is going to go.
