Brady on D&C: Suggs had his chance

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday to talk about Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Ravens. Following the game, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs warned that Brady "just better hope he doesn’t see us again."

 

Responded Brady: "He had his chance. Maybe if he gets another chance he can try to back those words up. But he had a chance yesterday. You know, we've played those guys a lot, and they've beat us one time in all the times that I've played them. They talk a lot for beating us once in nine years."

 

As for Suggs claiming that when Brady got in his face he was bragging about his supermodel wife, Brady said, "I think he made that up."

 

The Patriots visit San Diego next Sunday, but Brady said no one should expect an easy win just because of the team's success in the previous two games. "Regardless of what we did this past week, it's going to mean nothing when we play San Diego," he said. "But I will say this: We were struggling on the road for quite a while, and we beat Miami on the road in a big Monday night game and played really well in all phases. Then, we lost to a team in the playoffs last year 33-14 and really got our butts kicked, and with a very good defense that, OK, we played them and we're down 10 in the fourth quarter and we come back and win. That just tells me we can win on the road. We can win when we haven't played our best and we're down in the fourth quarter and guys are stepping up to make big plays and big kicks and big punts — those types of situations that are situational football, things that we need to execute to win those games. I think we gain confidence from that. I don't think it's going to matter next week what we did. But I'll tell you, if we're down 10 in the fourth quarter next week, I don't think there's going to be a guy on our sideline that doubts that we can win the game."

 

Deion Branch had a strong game in his return to the Patriots, and Brady wasn't surprised. "He's incredibly smart and works hard," Brady said. "As I've said over the course of the week, I've thrown thousands and thousands of footballs to him. Watching him on film over the last few years, he obviously still has all of his physical ability, the same as when he left, and he really showed it yesterday. He came up big in a big game for us. It was pretty exciting for him to be as involved as he was. I don't think he thought he would be as involved as he was in the offense. But we found ways to get him the ball."

 

Asked if he missed Randy Moss on Sunday, Brady said: "It's hard to say. There's things that we did with Randy that we don't do with anybody else. And there's things that we do with other guys that we never did with Randy. So, I guess it's just not part of the plan. If Randy was there, the game plan may have been a little bit different. With him not there, we really cater to the things that our guys do well. Like I said, he's on another team now. I wish him all the luck in the world for a great season except when they play us [in two weeks]. He's really found a different home. We've got to move on, too. And I think we did yesterday.
