FOXBORO — Tom Brady acknowledged on Wednesday that he is still not at full speed when it comes to executing his passes. "I think that's something I'm always working on, focusing on and trying to improve on," Brady said. "There are some positive things that I took out of the last game, in terms of my mechanics and driving the ball. Still, I don't think it's where I'm 100 percent comfortable with where my mechanics are at, but that's why I'm still working at it." Brady has completed 62 of his 100 pass attempts this season, with two touchdown passes to Ben Watson in Week 1 but none in the 16-9 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

Speaking on the Dale & Holley Show, Red Sox manager Terry Francona talked about planning for the playoffs and contemplating the postseason roster. "We try to look ahead, just to be prepared, without taking anything for granted, so I think some amount of appreciation is needed," Francona said. Regarding Nick Green, who is still in Boston after having his "dead" right leg examined, Francona said the infielder will join the team in New York Friday. "Greenie, we're not quite sure where we stand on him right now." As for Manny Delcarmen, who had struggled up until retiring his only batter Tuesday night, the manager said: "I need to find out what he can do, and if you run away from guys you don't find out." As for going after the American League East division title, Francona said: "If we win, it's going to take us wherever it takes us."
FOXBORO — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not offer any specific reaction on Wednesday to the $1 million lawsuit filed against him and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, this week. Two photographers sued Brady and Bundchen on Tuesday, saying they were shot at during a post-wedding party in Costa Rica. "I've got no reaction to that one," Brady said Wednesday. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan alleged that the photographers, who were not struck, suffered physical and mental harm from the attack during a celebration in early April at Bundchen's home. It also said Brady and Bundchen hired improperly trained security guards for the April party, two months after their wedding, even though they had to know their activities were a press magnet.
