It's amazing that a fluke accident in an NFL practice can change the course of history. That may be what happened this week when Tom Brady injured his hand. Suddenly, the favorites to win the Super Bowl were surrounded by question marks. And, teams led by unheralded quarterbacks like Blake Bortles, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles were sensing a chance to engrave their names on the most coveted trophy in sports.

Of course, New England hasn't lost yet! Tom Brady may be recovered enough by Sunday afternoon to execute the offense well enough to win. And, the Patriots would still be a slight favorite to advance with backup quarterback Brian Hoyer because they've played excellent defense the past three months and have home field advantage.

The biggest question handicappers have to ask is "Can the Patriots win with an injured Tom Brady?" The state-of-the-art resources here at JIM HURLEY'S NETWORK will help US answer that question.

*Our computer simulation programs can make adjustments based on whether Brady is 90%, 75%, or even just 50% of his usual self. We know what that means for how the offense will be run. We know what that means for how many touchdowns turn into field goals. And, obviously, we can stick Hoyer's skill set into the programming mix to calculate the impact of a personnel change. We KNOW what the line should be in all circumstances.

*Our ON SITE SOURCES will help is pin down those circumstances! Nobody is better informed or bettor connected than JIM HURLEY. We'll have the information everyone else in the market is craving this weekend. JIM HURLEY isn't just some guy telling you who he likes. He's the man in the middle of an information hurricane isolating the best investments.

*Our WISE GUY connections and friends "behind the line" will also alert us to any smart money developments. This may be the most important weekend for that EVER in pro football history. Opportunities like this don't arise very often...where the most important players on the field is a question mark in the hours leading up to kickoff. YEARS of relationship are about to pay off big for HURLEY clients.

Nobody's hotter than JIM HURLEY right now in the NFL playoffs with NETWORK'S 8-1-1 start against the Vegas line. Nobody is better positioned to make sure you GET THE MONEY this weekend.

What can we tell you NOW...heading into the weekend...about our key question today? Can the Patriots win if Brady's hurt?

Here's what we're at liberty to say. New England's offense is ruled by relatively short passes. You don't need a rifle arm to thrive in this schematic. You need great eyes, anticipation, and timing on short passes. The passing routes spread out defenders. The quarterback has to make reads and deliver.

Brady obviously is a Hall-of-Famer because he can do that half asleep at full strength. If he's even around 80% or so, that should be okay. He doesn't have a shoulder injury on an offense that throws a lot of bombs. Plus, he may only need a few TD drives to cinch a win the way the Pats defense has been playing. Go back and check how few opponents are even getting to 20 points since September!

That said, the closer you get to 50% or worse for Brady's readiness, the more trouble the team is in. An injured wrist does affect accuracy, and the ability to "lead" receivers at speed. Jacksonville's defense is good enough without any help! Hoyer might be the answer if Brady is only at 50% readiness (or worse).

Now, there's a whole other side to handicapping this game. And, that involves the Jacksonville Jaguars. To protect our pending selection for clients, we're NOT going to discuss them! We have read the Jags well so far, winning with Buffalo (+) down in Florida over Wildcard Weekend, but them coming back with Jacksonville (+) winning outright in the divisional round in Pittsburgh.

We've read the Jags well. We've read the whole playoffs well. The only loser was the Under in New Orleans/Minnesota that blew up late with cheap points (the Saints scored on TD drives of 30 and 40 yards in their comeback). JIM HURLEY is confident the winning ways will continue through the Super Bowl.
