Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Tom Brady


September 14, 2011
Tom Brady, before he had sexy hair.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a decent game on Monday night.  He finished the victory against the Miami Dolphins with 517 yards on 32-for-48 (66.7%) passing.  He tossed 4 touchdowns and 1 interception.  One of those touchdown passes was a 99-yard pass to Wes Welker.  The Patriots won by a score of 38-24.
Honorable mention: Brady’s opponent in that game was Chad Henne, who had an excellent game as well.  Henne completed 30 out of 49 (61.2%) passes for 416 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception.  He also ran 7 times for 59 yards (8.4 yards per carry) and 1 touchdown.

    I'm shocked at Henne's rushing stats. Did someone oil the robot's joints or something?

    I'm too lazy to check but I'd be willing to bet that 59 yards rushing is probably about what Henne accumulated in his entire 4 years at UM.

    It would be tough to tell, because sacks are counted against rushing yardage in college.

    Should also be mentioned.. I heard something like they broke an NFL record together for passing yards in a game.. Something along those lines
