Tom Brady in Car Wreck: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was involved in a two-car accident near his Boston home that occurred around 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning. Brady was "pretty banged up" but refused medical treatment, according to a local news station, and the other driver was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The fact he was even able to "refuse" medical treatment is a good sign for him. Hopefully he's OK, the other individual is OK, and Brady can start the season without problems.

Report is Brady is fine. I was hoping for something minor, Broken finger on his throwing hand) since the guy I play week one in fantasy has him.

So long as you have your priorities in order, debo.

I hope this is an up year for Brady and the Patriots. The league is more entertaining when they are an elite team and I can hate Belichick.

I bet the bruises only make him look more rugged and gorgeous.

I didnt want his spine broken or anything, Just enough to miss a game. Winner if my league makes some very nice money. My priorities are just fine.

Isn't the hope of winning out in your fantasy league top priority?

I have a love-hate relationship with fantasy. If you love football, then you really are expressing something close to rcade's sentiments. If you love fantasy football, you express something like debo's sentiments. Too very different things. It's fun to play, but I stopped playing when I started caring more about how players on my fantasy team were doing than the game I was watching.

The Pats aren't the Pats unless they are overcoming some adversity.

Here's his car. Sounds like the other driver ran a red. Guessing his friends will never forgive him.

From the "Boston Dirt Dogs" web site comes the Top 10 Little-Known Facts About Brady's Car Crash. A lot of things to ponder deeply here.

Pretty funny but:

8. Brady's Back Bay neighbor, Senator John Kerry, helped him procure those New Jersey license plates for his Audi so the Patriots star QB could avoid paying Massachusetts excise taxes and registration fees.

Has he seen how much taxes are in Jersey? That's just one of the many reasons I moved out to Miami.

As long as his hair is OK.

FWIW, the other guy was driving an Aerostar, which evidently went airborne upon impact and, as mentioned in the report, they needed the Jaws of Life to extricate him from the vehicle.

This should not be a surprise to any current or former Aerostar owner/operator. These classic boxes descended from the Pinto's noble lineage.

Recent studies have shown that nine out of ten Aerostars sold in the US are still off the road.

Enough about Tom-is Giselle ok? Let's focus on the important stuff, people.

The police report has it as a Mercury Villager, but since that's the same vehicle with a different badge, your point is valid, bb.
