Tom Brady: 'This is not the Super Bowl'

FOXBORO -- The biggest game of the year is about to take place at Gillette Stadium but Tom Brady knows it isn't the biggest game he wants to play in this season. The Patriots quarterback - asked about the level of importance of Monday night's meeting of the 9-2 Patriots and 9-2 Jets sounded an reasonable tone. 

 

"It's a game, a regular season game against a division opponent that is 9-2," Brady said. "I think we treat it just like that. This is not the Super Bowl. There are games after this game that are very important as well. This game for what we're trying to accomplish and winning our division - which is always the first goal of this team - it's a big game. You can't expect to win the division and lose to the same team twice.

 

Brady reference the loss to the Jets in Week 2 when the Patriots were outscored 21-0 in the second half and lost 28-14 at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

Rex: 'Not even close' Belichick best in game

FOXBORO -- Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted this week that he came to the Jets to kick the rear end of Bill Belichick and the Patriots but on Thursday he said Belichick is "the best coach in football, and it's not even close." 

 

"There are very few coaches that I steal from but Bill Belichick is one of them," Ryan said during Thursday's conference call with the New England media. "So creative in what he does coverage-wise, how he looks at things, puts traps out there. The guy is an amazing coach. That's a guy I will study. Each week I'll just pop their tape on and see what he's doing because he is creative, smart.

 

"The two that I would look at are obviously, Belichick number one and Pittsburgh... Dick LeBeau." Ryan said. 

 

But then Ryan said as much as respects Belichick, he roots just as hard against him. "When I got the job, I cheered against them. I...

Rivers: Plan is to finish with Celtics

Joining The Dennis & Callahan Show, Celtics coach Doc Rivers defused the rumors suggesting he would eventually be the coach of the Miami Heat.

 

"I really don't have any thoughts about that. As far as I'm concerned, I'm a Celtic and I plan on being that for a long time, as long as I'm coaching," Rivers said.

 

Asked if his decision whether or not to continue as the coach for the Celtics would have the similar amount of drama as took place at the conclusion of last season, Rivers said, "I hope not, but I don't know. I can honestly tell you, I've given it zero thought. I was asked about it a couple of times yesterday because I don't even know where this thing came from, but other than that I don't think about it at all."

 

Rivers did admit that times like Wednesday night -- when his son, Jerememiah, was playing for Indiana against Boston College just a few miles away from the Celtics...
