GLENDALE, Ariz. — Speaking on the NBC pregame show in an interview taped earlier in the week, Tom Brady sat down with Bob Costas where he was asked a few questions on Deflategate.

“I’ve talked about that in the past, and I don’t want that to continue to be a story this particular game,” said Brady. “All the facts will come out after the Super Bowl. However the facts come out that will be news to me as well. That process will all take place at some point. I am excited about the Super Bowl and that is where my focus is.

“I think there was an energy drain with my emotions and feelings being involved early in the week. You have to be able to move past those things and compartmentalize those things and be mentally tough out there to move through.”

Brady is aware of the past history with the Patriots and Spygate, but said he is focused on the Super Bowl and wants all the facts to come out before commenting on the matter.

“I’d like to just wait for the facts to come out before talking about any of those things,” Brady said. “In some ways to make judgements on things I know nothing about is not really fair to whatever the process ends up being. We’re under tough scrutiny. We’ve won a lot of games and people are very critical of what we do.

“They are critical of what a lot of teams do. That is part of being in this profession, you have to take the good with the bad. I’m OK with it. Our team is OK with it. We’ve had great focus this week and hopefully our best is going to come through Sunday night. That is where our focus is going to me.”

The quarterback said he can understand why he’s been under a lot of scrutiny, but says those people don’t know his beliefs and what he’s all about.

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion and when you play for one NFL team, there are 31 other NFL teams out there and they are probably not much of a fan of you,” he said. “If people what to feel the way they feel, I have no problem, with that. They are certainly entitled to those beliefs and those feelings. I realize it’s not about me, not a lot of people know who I am and what I am about. The people that do, they do know what I am about and what I stand for.”

“Absolutely. I can understand why people feel that way,” he added. “There is an investigation going on. I am sure all those things will come out. It’s been a lot of speculation and that’s what led to my hurt feelings. Hopefully the facts come out and we understand whatever happened, happened and it is not going to affect this game and we can move forward.”

GLENDALE, Ariz.

GLENDALE, Ariz. –€” The Patriots announced the following players were inactive for Sunday’€™s Super Bowl matchup with the Seahawks: running backs Jonas Gray and James White; wide receivers Brian Tyms and Josh Boyce; offensive lineman Jordan Devey and defensive linemen Zach Moore and Joe Vellano.

No real surprises here, at least from a personnel standpoint, as all appear to be healthy scratches. One thing to look for is the fact that offensive lineman Cameron Fleming is active and ready to go ahead of someone like Tyms –€” it could be a sign that the Patriots are inclined to go with more of a run-heavy set with six offensive linemen as needed.
