But after two strange slides on Sunday in Philadelphia in which Brady's knee brace dug up chunks of grass, the Patriots quarterback might be turning to a local source to regain his sliding form.
"That was pretty pathetic. Maybe I should go over to Fenway and have those guys teach me how to slide," Brady joked on WEEI's Dennis and Callahan. "But I've got this big-ass knee brace on my left knee. When I slide on grass, it just digs into the turf. There was a huge clump of grass that came up. Maybe I should slide on my right knee."
Head coach Bill Belichick agreed that Brady may need a little help with his sliding technique, admitting that they probably need to talk about it a little bit more.
"We'll look into that," Belichick said. "See if we can get Dustin [Pedroia] to spend a little time with him."
That's probably a good idea, especially since Brady the speed demon took off running five times for 28 yards on Sunday. Move over, Tim Tebow.
