Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about the win over the Steelers, prepping for the Colts and his foot injury. He also addressed the issue of his emotions after cameras captured him screaming at his teammates. Brady said that's just the way they relate to each other during games. "They know me very well," Brady said. "My emotions go up and down, and so do theirs. They say things back to me. I want them to know and they do know it’s all in the best interest of us trying to accomplish our goals each week. There’s nothing personal out there toward anybody. There’s plenty of times when they want to scream at me."
Brady continued, "I don’t think you’re a going to have a good football team if everyone’s in a happy mood all the time. There are guys that are very edgy and we have plenty of those guys on our team especially our coach and our offensive coaches are the same way. We’re just trying to win the game."
Brady said Wes Welker and Kevin Faulk are the same way, as were Rodney Harrison, Tedy Bruschi and Junior Seau. "I do feel like when I’m really into it like that, I am hyper-focused," Brady said. "It’s hard to get on other players when you’re not playing well. If I’m not playing well I tend to be a little more reserved, which I don’t want to be that way. I want to keep the pressure on us and keep us focused."
On the Steelers game, Brady noted that his receivers made plays. He pointed to Alge Crumpler's catch on the first drive that set the tone. “The whole drive we just get going from there," Brady said. "The crowd was going crazy and the energy in the first series of the game and then, wow we’re in the end zone. That’s the way this is the game going to go tonight.”
Now it's on to the Colts who present a whole different set of challenges. "The difficult thing about them is there style of defense and there's only one team that plays it and that's them," Brady said. "It's not like playing a 3-4 defense. This is by far the fastest, quickest defense in the league. Two of the most dynamic pass rushers in the game. They do a lot of things well."
Brady also addressed his foot injury. "You get the adrenaline going, it helps a lot," he said. "There's a lot of people dealing with stuff. Every guy on our team is nicked up."
