FOXBORO — Over the last month, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has managed to shake off the inconsistencies that plagued him over the first few weeks of the 2009 season and return to the same familiar pre-knee injury form. Consider the numbers:

Lots of Wildcat talk this week. Tons of it. People want to know how much Wildcat we’ll see from Miami on Sunday, how to stop it, and if the quarterback is fair game when he splits wide in a Wildcat formation.

No mailbag last week — my apologies. The funky week got everything turned around, and we weren’t able to get to the e-mails. Some of them were able to hold up for an extra week, while others had to be tossed out. Won’t happen again, people: I’m locked and loaded for the rest of the regular season, which is almost (gasp) halfway over.
