Brady is THE super star of the NFL. Defending MVP, undefeated
regular season, NFL record 50 touchdown passes, dating Gisele,
etc, etc, etc. And has remained fairly popular, even while playing
for the New England Patriots, who thanks to success, Bill Belichek
and a rather annoying fan base, have become one of the more hated
franchises in the league.
still, no one really likes to see what happened to Brady on Opening
Day of the 2008 season, when in the first quarter, a Chiefs defensive
back hit him in the lower leg as a Patriots blocker was falling
on him--and right as Brady was planting for a throw.
video replays never looked too bad, and the picture below isn't
particularly gruesome compared to some like Tyrone
Prothro or Joe Theisman. Still,
knees aren't supposed to bend like that.
