Two weeks ago we passed along word that Tom Martinez, the longtime personal quarterback coach and mentor to Tom Brady, had serious health problems and had been given a grave prognosis of just a month to live. But today we can pass along good news.

“I’m feeling better and I’m optimistic after being almost completely certain that I was going to die,” Martinez told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Martinez says he has been given new hope after seeking a second opinion, getting an adjustment to his pacemaker and being told he’s a candidate for a kidney transplant and, if a suitable donor can be found, a heart transplant.

“Incredible, isn’t it?” Martinez said. “After my camp ends, I will go back down to UCLA for some internal tests, to see if I can handle surgery. They might try to do a double transplant if everything works.”

With smart doctors and a generous organ donor, Martinez may still have plenty of quarterback mentoring left in him.

What? That the Golden Coral had to evict him for cleaning out the buffett twice in one night?

"When he got to Oakland and started to struggle ... I always at the end of every kid I work with, I give them a quarter," Martinez said. "And I tell them, when you need help, you call me. ... Brady used his quarter, and I had to give him another one, and he used that, and I gave him a different one. JaMarcus still has his."

Is this a huge surprise? Not after the story surfaced about the blank DVD the coaching staff gave him to watch, then the next day at practice asked him if he studied the "game tape" specially made for him and he said yes....
