Could Brady Be a Little Gun Shy Entering the Season

How long is it going to take Tom Brady to be back to 100 percent once the first snap of the season goes down? That’s a great question, and Tom Martinez, Brady’s longtime QB coach, says he wouldn’t be shocked to see him a little gun shy early on:

One of the people who knows Tom Brady best, Tom Martinez, believes it’s going to take a little time before we see the Brady with the iron-clad pocket presence. Reached yesterday at his home in California, Martinez, the longtime passing coach of Brady who has tutored the quarterback since 1990, wouldn’t be surprised if his prized pupil is a little gun-shy at first. “Tom Brady has a special kind of mind and heart. That’s what makes him what he is,” said Martinez. “But I still think there’s a normal reaction to an injury, especially to a lower extremity, that you actually have to stride into a throw to get any kind of velocity. So you’re stepping into the people that are coming after your injury. So it’s going to be a mental challenge for Tom in the beginning.”
