There won’t be any reason for Tom Brady “concussion-gate” talk at the Patriots home-opener tomorrow night at Gillette!

According to the NFL, “The NFL and NFLPA have conducted comprehensive evaluations of the Concussion Protocol as it applied to Tom Brady during the 2016-17 season.  This review included an examination of all game film from every Patriots’ game last season, every report from the Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultants and Booth ATC Spotters assigned to those games and Mr. Brady’s medical records, which were produced pursuant to a release signed by Mr. Brady.”

“This review identified no evidence of any deviation from the Protocol by the Patriots’ medical staff or the Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultants assigned to Patriots’ games or any indication that Mr. Brady sustained a concussion or reported signs or symptoms consistent with having sustained a concussion.”

Now that that’s settled,  raise the new banner and “Let’s Go Pats!”  The Patriots posted this video on Facebook today with the caption: “#BannerWeek flashback: An unFOURgettable ceremony.”
