Patrick Chung’s Unparalleled Toughness Makes Him Ideal Patriots Captain

Watt (broken leg) and linebacker Whitney Mercilus (torn pectoral muscle) after they both suffered season-ending injuries in Week 5 against the Chiefs last season. "Time" epilogue Wednesday that he hopes to play until he's 45.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Facing off for fourth straight year in regular season. The safety and recently-appointed team captain, who is known for his versatility, gets thrown into roles beyond his natural position. Belichick indicated Chung also helps run plays on the scout-team offense.

Brady now has a better understanding of the noise that is around him and how to manage dealing with it given that increased scrutiny at the tail end of last season.

Instead, the quarterback said his focus would be on the the Patriot's opponent in the season opener - the Houston Texans.

He played just three games in 2016 before being sidelined with a herniated disc.

Despite his age, however, Brady reiterated in the episode his desire to play five more seasons.

Now I don't expect Brady to all of a sudden forget how to play quarterback, but he will now be under a microscope. The team will be relying on Cordarrelle Patterson, Chris Hogan, and Phillip Dorsett to make plays in the passing game.

"To be on this team, you have to be a good football player and the guys that are out there certainly I have a lot of confidence in". The Boston Herald says Brady left little doubt in terms of his intentions. Over the summer, McGinest predicted that Brady would retire if New England were to win Super Bowl LIII. Also, we will see how Brady performs with some limited weapons at wide receiver with Julian Edelman being suspended.

White is entering his fifth year in the National Football League and will serve as a captain for the first time in 2018 along with safety Patrick Chung (also a first-time captain), quarterback Tom Brady, safety Devin McCourty and center David Andrews. "I mean, those things are still very enjoyable for me and there's no place I'd rather be Sunday afternoon than 1 o'clock, playing here and playing well". "It will be a challenge for me, I don't think it's going to be easy. but I think I can do it", he said. "I think coming off an ACL people worry about, 'Is he going to (still) do it.' I think he's going to be the same guy, just a better passer and a quarterback because he has experience under his belt and he's been working". He sounds like he's a decent frame of mind after that melodramatic (by the Patriots' standards) offseason, his teammates love him, and if he can remain healthy, he's going to be the king of beasts once again.

Brady went on to say he is at a point in his life where the 41-year-old does not care as much about what other people think anymore. I think a lot of keeping things in perspective.

"Once you stop, you're done".

"I think the last eight years of my career have been better than the first 10, so I should just prolong it and that's what I'm trying to do", Brady said.

"If I'm going to do something at this point, it's going to be because I enjoy it", Brady said in a voice-over in the epilogue to a series that is part documentary, part diary. But I was just thinking to myself, 'This is a insane sight that I'm looking at here'.
