New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history and is entering his 15th season. While he is still very good, he’s not as good as he used to be. Despite that thinking though, the Dolphins aren’t taking him lightly.
“He still makes all the throws,” cornerback Brent Grimes told the Miami Dolphins website. “He’s still a great quarterback, one of the best quarterbacks not only now but one of the best quarterbacks ever, so it’s a challenge. Any time you go against him, he knows that offense so well. He knows where to go with the ball. He knows defenses. He knows where to make his checks. It’s the reason he’s one of the best quarterbacks ever, but when playing a team like that you just have to go out, handle your job, try not to give him anything easy, make him work for everything and go from there.”
The Dolphins always seem to give Brady fits at Sun Life Stadium and Sunday should be no different with the heat and humidity factored in. For defensive end Cameron Wake, the key against Brady is making him uncomfortable in the pocket.
“It’s just like any other quarterback, they don’t like people in their face, they don’t like the timing screwed up,” Wake said. “They like to be in a rhythm and to throw that rhythm off as a defensive lineman. Obviously, my guys in the front seven, that’s our job and we’ve got to make sure we do that on Sunday.”
