It's official: Tom Brady will have surgery on his left knee, ending his 2008 season. Coach Bill Belichick said the Patriots will put the QB on injured reserve and prepare to play without the reigning league MVP.
The question: Where does this leave the Patriots? New England was everybody's favorite to win the AFC East before the season, but the Brady injury certainly adds a wrinkle. With the Bills and Jets winning in Week 1, and the Dolphins putting up a good fight in a close loss, suddenly the Brady-less Pats may not be the sure thing they were at this time last week.
