  • Brady on admiration for Manning: 'I mean, he is older than me'

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports17 hrs ago

    Tom Brady doesn’t exactly need to be waterboarded to throw bouquets at Peyton Manning.

    Wednesday morning, he verbalized his appreciation for Manning and the Denver quarterback’s way of doing things.

    “Every week it’s so consistent, you can just count on a great performance,” Brady offered. “A lot of people who have played don’t do it on a consistent basis. When you see someone who does it at a high level, I have a lot of appreciation for that. I understand what it takes. It’s not just a daily commitment, it’s a life commitment. Every decision you make is a conscious decision to try and help your team win, whether that’s in March, whether that’s in September, November. You just can’t flip the switch when it matters. You’ve gotta communicate that to all your teammates. The competition is always on. It never goes away. You’re either getting better or you’re getting worse. I’ve always respected him because he’s someone who’s chosen to get better.”

    Brady and Manning will be inextricably linked long after their retirements. But Brady didn’t cop to following Manning’s every move and using Manning as motivation.

    A month ago, there were people wondering if Tom Brady was too old.

    Those people are getting hard to find at the moment.

    The Patriots quarterback was named AFC offensive player of the month after four straight standout games.

    Brady had a 129.1 passer rating, with 1,268 yards and 14 touchdowns, leading the Patriots to four wins.

    Of course, the next game will be a showdown at several levels, as he’s facing off against old foe Peyton Manning, but also the AFC’s defensive player of the month in Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a CT scan on his injured back today, revealing that the injury is not something that will cause him to miss much time.

    Romo isn’t practicing today, but the Cowboys often have him rest on Wednesdays. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett indicated that he may be able to practice later this week, and sounded cautiously optimistic that Romo will play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    It’s a day-by-day thing with Tony, we’ll see how he handles the pain and we’ll see how functional he is as the week goes on,” Garrett said. “We’ll see what his availability is for this ball game.”

    Garrett echoed the comments of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said the biggest issue with Romo will be pain tolerance.
