As if the Tom Brady-Peyton Manning matchup in Sundays AFC championship game needed any more angles, illness entered the equation Wednesday morning.
Brady missed the New England Patriots practice and the quarterbacks scheduled media availability was canceled, too.

He needs to call Drew Breeze. He take some OTC drugs and he’s ready to go!
There is a 100% chance Brady will play.
Probably out with the 2 day sniffles. I’m sure he’ll be ready for Sunday.
Maybe the Patriots and Brady were being superstitious. Brady was present for every practice leading up to last years AFC championship game and the Patriots lost to the Baltimore Ravens. The year before, he missed practice the Wednesday before the AFC title game and the Patriots won.
As a Broncos fan, I want to see a GAME with both Manning and Brady!
Kick the cold, Tom!!
This is my Superbowl!
Great food, cold beer, remote in hand and the phones off! No matter what happens I hope it’s close! And that ultimately Denver wins...
2 day sniffles - hopefully they’re not the 10 day and counting that I’ve been suffering.
Sounds like a prescuse. Just in case.
Excuses for future losses, that’s all. Everybody knows it.
Probably the trots from de taco.
Brady will b ready when the game comes, and will likely win. Blunt is an absolute beast.
Gimme a break. Tom Brady will play, just like Michael Jordan played with the flu in Game 6.
If he has the same crap I have had for the last three weeks....he will not be 100 %....
First couple of days really knocks you out.... Then a very slow recovery with no energy for at least a week....
I’ve always wondered what would happen if a team got hit with Noravirus during the time of a playoff game.
No way he misses it.
I have to say, I am a Pats fan, but I loved the press conference after the game on Sunday where Manning was longing for a Bud Light!
Gotta love it! We are so lucky to be able to see these two guys playing for the last decade and a half!
Great PR campaign going on in the AFC title game!Kraft knows how to rev up the hype along with the NFL!Spend spend spend!They need ratings and $$$!Tommy was probably just shopping with the wife down on Newbury street in beantown and couldn’t get to practice.
Heh, you haven’t been on FR that long, but you picked right up on the conspiracy theorist angle...
You’re going to fit right in with a certain portion of the crowd on here!
I come and go.I’ve been on FR for 15 years.
Watching the last few Pats games, I wondered at the time why teams don’t get sick more often, when they’ve spent 4 hours standing on the sidelines in the driving rain at near-freezing temperatures, and with their uniforms visibly soaked.
Looks like maybe it caught up with Tom — I hope not.
Ah, so that’s how you got the hang of it...:)
The man makes millions and drinks that swill? But that was a great line. He should have longed for a Yuengling. LOL!!
I’m looking forward to this game. Here we have two of the finest quarterbacks ever in the NFL, both in character and ability.
Meanwhile in Seattle....
Did you see how Kapernick and Cam Newton appeared at their after-game press conferences? Newton was neatly dressed in tie and jacket; he looked great! He addressed the questions in a sharp, dignified manner.
Kapernick looked like a thug who just finished a game in a pool hall. Hat askew, slouched over the microphone, I expected him to ask for a lawyer before he answered any more questions.
Indeed! But it wasn’t the beer he wanted...it was the concept of a drinking of beer he wanted!
I swear, there was something completely genuine in that...but if he is at all like me as he gets older, the desire to drink is still there, but...I don’t have the energy to do it!
I think he just liked the concept.
As for the Yuengling...last year when I came up through Pennsylvania, I bought several cases to bring home with me...one for myself, and a couple for a few friends of mine who really like it. I can occasionally find it up here in Massachusetts.
But I generally drink Sam Adams when I want a beer for the pleasure of the drink, and I drink Coors Light when I am drinking over a long day, like going to the game in Foxboro or when there is an all day party somewhere. For a little while, I tried drinking Sam Adams in the same fashion I drink a six pack of Coors Light, and it didn’t work. It was too heavy for me.
Here’s the thing for me, though: I would much rather have an ice cold Coke when I am thirsty, than an ice cold beer. I am not a connoisseur of beer, rather, a consumer. I like what it does to me more than I like the taste...:)
Heh, but alas...not the energy to consume!
Eh. I Just. Don’t. Like. Kapernick.
He reminds me of Aaron Hernandez. There is something about his look and manner.
I bet he was longing for something a little stronger when he took the air out of the ball at the end of the game last year and let Baltimore win the game. I like Peyton Manning but have always wondered why they were playing not to lose instead of playing to win. Manning scared to pass the ball? That’s exactly how it happened. They tried to run the ball play after play and got stopped, had to punt it away to Baltimore and ended up losing a game they had in the bag.
Congratulations...your team did a good job today.
