We’re now at DEFCON 3 with Brady unable to practice on Thursday. Nobody expects Brady to miss the game, but it’s not crazy to wonder if his injury could affect his ability to be effective Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey against a Jaguars defense that can generate pressure and takeaways at a high rate. It’s no longer inconceivable to think this fluke hand injury could be the thing that derails the Patriots’ dreams of winning a second straight Super Bowl.
Figuring out what to do at quarterback should be priority No. 1 in Minnesota, and re-signing one of their impending free agents figures to be a near certainty, possibly slapping a franchise tag on Case Keenum. Until that happens, consider quarterback a potential need.
On the offensive line, Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers are locked in at tackle while Pat Elflein figures to remain the starter at center, but the Vikings need to find a pair of guards with Joe Berger (unrestricted) and Nick Easton (restricted) heading into free agency. Expect Easton to return and the team to look to the draft to find their final starter on the line.

For a while, at least, it did. It’s easy to forget now. But for two seasons, Kelly thrived in Philadelphia. His first two Eagles teams had identical 10-6 records. He reached the playoffs in his first season. He somehow coaxed a 27-touchdown, two-interception season out of quarterback Nick Foles in 2013. That alone should have put Kelly on his way to Hall of Fame consideration. Foles, in the rest of his NFL career, has totaled 29 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.

But Kelly was no Bill Parcells. Instead of turning the Eagles from good to great, he turned them from good to bad. He traded Foles for fellow quarterback Sam Bradford. He traded tailback LeSean McCoy and signed DeMarco Murray, who did not fit into the Eagles’ offense. He allowed Jeremy Maclin to exit via free agency a year after releasing fellow wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
The Eagles came unraveled and Lurie lost patience quickly, firing Kelly with one game remaining in the 2015 season. The team had a 6-9 record at the time.
