For Those Hoping Tom Brady Will Be Holding A Clipboard Sunday...

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick told his starting QB Tom Brady today, "You'll play, don't worry about that. You'll be playing."

How much is the next question, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him in for the entire game or taken out when/if one team has a significant lead. After all, Bill Belichick isn't Coach Caldwell.

2010 PRO BOWL (Lies!!!) QB Tom Brady had this to add:

"As players, we obviously don't factor into any of those decisions that coach Belichick makes," Brady said. "It's our job to prepare to play and I certainly am. I'm out there doing all my regular practice stuff. I want to play and I want to do great. I want to have a great game against a team that is fighting for their playoff lives, and has a lot of great players and really challenges you in some different ways. It's a meaningful game for us, it's a meaningful game for them, too. It would be great for us to go win on the road in a real tough environment against a damn good team. My dad said, 'Are you guys going to play this week?' Of course I want to play. I don't want to lose a game. You don't just forfeit these games. Playing Houston, I don't want to see one of them in the offseason and them saying 'Hey, we beat you guys.' Screw that. You have to go out there and play. Close game. Blowout. We get behind. I'm expecting to play the whole game. I wouldn't see why I wouldn't."

There you have it. Straight from the PRO BOWL (Ahhh!!!) QB's mouth.
