Tom Brady will play in the New England Patriots preseason game Friday night against the Carolina Panthers, according to a report by CSNNE.com.Brady is making the trip to Carolina with the team, according to ESPN and multiple reports. The Patriots will start?Jimmy Garoppolo?at quarterback but plan to also have Brady play, a source told ESPNs Mike Reiss.Garoppolo started the first two preseason games for the Pats, playing the entire first half against the Saints on Aug. 11 and through the first series of the third quarter against the Bears on Aug. 18.In all, he has played 84 snaps, and rookie Jacoby Brissett has played 54.Brady has yet to play in the preseason. Since he became the starter in the 2001 season, there has been just one preseason in which he hasnt played a game, in 2008.Brady will serve a four-game suspension to begin the regular season as the team turns to Garoppolo as its starter. This will mark the first season since 2001 that a quarterback other than Brady starts the regular-season opener for the Patriots.Earlier this week, Brady talked about why live game action in the preseason is so crucial for his development.Youre getting hit, so just the space awareness, guys around you, and ball security and things like that, he said. For the last 30 practices quarterbacks arent touched. [In a game] just standing there in the pocket, holding the ball knowing that theyre coming to get the ball and knock it out of your hands, hitting the ground, those types of things and so forth are important.You just have to feel things out and the game is really the only place to get it because its regular speed. You dont know whats coming.Asked if he truly needed game reps, Brady said, I dont think any of them hurt, so I think just do the best you can do. Were preparing a lot of guys to get ready to play. I fit into that, but so do a lot of other guys. Im just taking the advice of Coach [Bill Belichick], and whatever he wants to do, Im going to do everything I can to be ready to go when I am called upon. Thats what my responsibility is so thats what Im preparing to do.Brady also touched on another reason he wants to play; at 39 years old, hes closer to the end of his career than the start.Im getting so many opportunities left in my life, so Id like to take advantage of any opportunity, any and all of them if possible, he said. When you see your teammates out there in their uniforms and ready to go, you want to be out there with them.ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss contributed to this report. Air Max 270 Italia .

This season, baseball historian Bill Savage has been contributing a Chicago Cubs fans perspective from his seats at Wrigley Field in a column called The View From Section 416. For the World Series, Cleveland Indians fan and baseball writer Susan Petrone has joined the party and will write The View From The 216 -- aka Clevelands area code.Its been a strange and heady year here in Believeland. If you live in the 216, its a fine time to be alive. Were currently grooving on the Indians in the World Series. The wind off Lake Erie smells of hope and energy. It started this past summer when the Cleveland Cavaliers won the citys first major sports championship in, like, forever, and has carried right on over into October. The idea that the Cleveland Indians are playing in the World Series right now and that they havent been swept but could actually win this thing, is simultaneously overwhelming and joy-inducing.The only problem is, its a little lonely. Judging from the news and social media, it appears that just about everybody outside of Northeast Ohio is rooting for the Chicago Cubs in the Series. In a way, its understandable. The Cubs have lost for so long and in so many ways that a sort of mythology has sprung up around their epic World Series drought. Embracing the lovable losers has become almost, well, cute. Cleveland, on the other hand, has lost not only baseball games but population and jobs over their 68-year-drought. We have learned that losing isnt cute or cuddly.People are hesitant to cheer for the Cleveland Indians for any number of reasons. To put it in human terms, if my city were a person, shed be the funky chick hanging out on her own, moving on the periphery of the cool crowd. Shes the one who sometimes tries too hard to act cool. She can be defensive when she thinks shes being insulted, probably because she has been given a lot of grief in the past just for being her. And then theres her tattoo. Somebody said she got it a long time ago and knows its horrible. Shes still gathering up the courage to get rid of it. Some of the popular kids whove talked to her one-on-one thought she was really cool, fascinating, beautiful even, but theyll never say so. Nobody will admit to actually liking her.And it seems that nobody will admit to actually liking the Indians. Im not asking you to buy season tickets here, just to give them a chance. Why should you get behind Cleveland?Getting behind the underdog is an American tradition The Cubs have a $186 million payroll and a near-perfect roster of marquee players. By contrast, the small-market Indians have a $114 million payroll and maybe two guys and one pinkie that anyone outside of the city has ever heard of. On paper, Cleveland is grossly overmatched. Nobody thought theyd make it past the American Leaggue Division Series, much less all the way to the Fall Classic.ddddddddddddBut here they are. In a World Series of baseballs two perpetual underdogs, were the underdogs.They keep finding unusual ways to winIf youre reading this, you probably already know the litany of injuries. The Indians were without their most productive hitter (Michael Brantley) for most of the season. They were without their regular catcher (Yan Gomes) for most of the season. They entered the postseason with two-thirds of a starting rotation. They won Game 3 of the American League Championship Series despite losing their starting pitcher in the first inning because he was bleeding all over the ball. They clinched the ALCS with a rookie making his second major league start on the mound. Terry Francona is reimagining the way modern managers use their bullpens on the fly. Who does this sort of thing? Dont you want to see what theyll do next?Cleveland needs this more Lets start this with a question. Ask 10 people where theyd rather live: Cleveland or Chicago? Lets start with you, would you rather live in Cleveland or Chicago?Its okay that you said Chicago. Were used to that.For Cubs fans, this World Series is about winning baseballs ultimate title. In Cleveland, the World Series isnt just about baseball. We dont have the luxury of a second major league team. Our football team has never won a Super Bowl. Chicagos basketball team alone has won more championships on its own than our entire city has won in the three major sports in the Super Bowl era. Chicago has never been the punchline to a stale joke.By now Im sure youve seen the MLB-sanctioned T-shirts for the postseason. They feature an identical tagline with only the city name changed. When I saw the Respect Chicago shirt, I almost laughed. When have people not respected Chicago? Thats about as daring as saying Respect Tacos. Now a T-shirt exhorting you to Respect Cleveland? Thats a bit more challenging, isnt it?We are a small market city. The national narrative about this World Series is still focused on the Cubs. Even when the small market team wins, the rest of the world doesnt say Cleveland won. Instead, people wonder how the big market team lost. Even if the Indians win it all this year, the national headlines wont read: Cleveland wins World Series. Theyll read: Chicago Cubs fans continue to suffer. By cheering for the Indians, you will help to subvert the dominant paradigm.Think about getting behind them. You dont need to buy the Respect Cleveland shirt. But call up that funky chick and ask her to hang out. Get to know her a little bit. Show her some respect. And root for her in the World Series. ' ' '
