Brady pokes fun at his lead-block ability with Facebook video

Patriots coach Bill Belichick praised, of all things, Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's willingness to throw a block in the days leading up the Week 12 matchup between division rivals. Tough quarterback, Belichick explained. 

It was Belichick's signal-caller, though, who found himself leading the way for a running back at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. 

In the first quarter, during the Patriots' second drive, running back LeGarrette Blount reversed course when his running lane was cut off and soon found himself in Brady's wake. He rumbled behind Brady as Brady carefully avoided contact -- for some reason, Jets defenders avoided him as well -- leading to a 10-yard pick-up.

"You guys saw what happened when I got out in front of a running back," Brady told WEEI's Kirk and Callahan Show on Monday. "I can't do [crap]. I don't even know what to do when I'm out there. I'm looking around . . . I'm really a fish out of water when I'm out there . . . Things happen so fast. It's like you're on the highway. I'm never out there. It's a weird thing."

Brady went the extra mile to poke fun at himself later in the day when his Facebook page posted a video of the 39-year-old's audition for fullback James Develin's job.

Pre-snap... LG: “Tom I’m gonna bounce back and you lead the way, cool?” TB: "I got you, LG."

Shaq carries Gronk at Miami dance-off

Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?

Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride. 

Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

So, who won the dance-off?

Shaq vs @gronk dance battle you tell me who won
