New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady apparently added a new element to his game during his four-game, season-opening suspension.
The veteran quarterback has used his legs to scamper for some first downs this season. The 17-year quarterback has an astonishing, by his standards, 9 rushes for 29 yards through three games. A rushing rate of 3.2 yards per clip.
Brady has a decent shot at breaking his single-season rushing record of 110 yards that he accomplished in 2002. He’s had three 100-yards rushing seasons in his career.
“My mom was always the one that said, ‘You can do it. You can do it, sweetheart.’ She still says that!” Brady said at an even for Dick’s Sports Goods. “I would say, ‘Mom — guys like Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, they make all these great plays with their feet.’ And (she’d say), ‘Well, you’re just as fast as they are!’”
“I said, ‘Mom, I don’t know what you’re watching.’”
Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan clearly agrees with the younger Brady on this matter.
"I think we might have the edge in the [quarterback] running game. I'll go out on a limb and say that." Rex on Taylor over TB12
