All that was missing from the New England Patriots’ season-opening win over the Pittsburgh Steelers was a postgame social media post from Tom Brady. No “TB Times,” no innocuous picture with innocuous caption — nothing.

Well, we got what we were looking for Monday afternoon when Brady shared a video of himself leaving Gillette Stadium and delivering a message to Patriots fans.

“It’s been a long wait, but NFL season is back,” Brady said. “We’re 1-0, left some out there, so we got a lot of work to do. Get back to work on a Monday, try to get to 2-0.

“Let’s go!”

Some gripping stuff, truly.

Brady’s excitement likely is near an all-time high with Antonio Brown and the Patriots set to finalize a contract sometime Monday. The star receiver is on track to make his Patriots debut next Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
