Tom Brady is relaxed, no matter what Drudge implies

Drudge has an item this morning, "Players Reveal Jitters Before Game.." It features a 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" image of Tom Brady. [ reduced image on the right ]

The problem is: Tom Brady doesn't have the jitters.

Drudge links to a story on Yahoo! News written by JOE KAY, AP Sports Writer writes:
Brady took a nap before the Patriots' 20-17 victory over the Rams two years ago, calmly leading his team to the winning field goal in the closing seconds. He sounded serene Thursday while looking ahead to his next appearance on the big stage.

"I'll feel prepared," Brady said. "Usually when I feel prepared, I feel comfortable. I'm sure I'll be pretty relaxed."
In The Yahoo! News story there's a little 1 1/2" x 1" photo of Brady illustrating the story too. OK, I understand that Tom Brady is the hottest thing out there right now, but Drudge misleads the reader with the large photo of Tom Brady. Yahoo! News didn't put the best picture up there either.

If you read the article, you'll see that Kevin Dyson for the Panthers is the one with the jitters who can't sleep at night. But I guess featuring a photo of him wouldn't attract many clicks. Dyson tore his Achilles' tendon and missed most of the season.
