Brady: 'Antonio Cromartie is a great player'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on Dennis & Callahan to recap Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Seahawks. The Patriots led 23-10 with just over nine minutes left in the fourth quarter but failed to score again as rookie quarterback Russell Wilson led the Seahawks on a pair of touchdown drives.

"The other day was clearly frustrating for everyone involved," Brady said. "We played the kind of game we wanted to play for most of it, and didn't play really well when we needed to. Football is about being ahead in the end, doesn't matter if you lead in the first quarter, second quarter or third quarter, what matters is being ahead in the end. We just let one get away from us."

The end of the first half saw some uncharacteristic play from Brady, who was nearly picked off the end zone before being flagged for intentional grounding on with two seconds left at the Seattle 3-yard line, a penalty that ended the half (with the required 10-second runoff after an intentional grounding). Brady was asked about the sequence of events.

"You got two shots at the end zone," said Brady of the final two plays of the half. "The first was incomplete, and the second was an intentional grounding. I just kind of stepped up in the pocket and threw the ball over the middle, just trying to throw the ball away. There just wasn't anyone very close to where I was throwing to, and they made the right call."

Wes Welker caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown from Brady on Sunday, but also received a brutal hit to the chest from Seattle safety Brandon Browner. Welker missed just three plays before returning and immediately catching a third-down pass.

"He got drilled, he got drilled," Brady said. "He's so tough, there's nobody as tough as Wes. His mental toughness, his physical toughness. He runs over the middle fearlessly and makes play after play after play. He made a ton of plays the other day and was open on a ton more plays that I didn't throw to him. He finds the hole and knows how to get open. He's just a great player for us."

The Jets, also 3-3, will be at Gillette Stadium this weekend without Darrelle Revis, out for the season with an ACL injury. Brady was asked if his approach to the Jets will change without the All-Pro cornerback.

"He's a phenomenal player," Brady said. "As good a corner as there is in the league and as good as corner I've faced, but their team has always been built around their defense and not just one player. He's a great player and I don't want to discount him, but they've got other great players, too. Antonio Cromartie is a great player and they have some guys on the line that can rush and a solid group of linebackers. It's going to be a good challenge for us, it feels like we're playing good defenses every week and the Jets are no different."
