Brady: 'I'll never get over' loss to Jets

For those who think that Tom Brady has shaken off the effects of the playoff loss to the Jets last season, Brady is here to tell you that the defeat continues to haunt his dreams.

“The Jets, I’ll never get over that loss,” Brady told WEEI in Boston (via sportsradiointerviews.com). “That’s as painful of a loss as I think we’ve ever had here as a team. They can rush the passer. They’re a good team. They pressure the quarterback. That’s what we have to be prepared for with them. And they always try to find a way to confuse the quarterback, whether that’s by pass rush, whether that’s by coverage and often times both. We gave them a lot of credit when they won and I think we have to learn from that and understand what it takes to beat good teams under tough conditions. That’s what we have to try and accomplish this year.”

Yes, but if Jets coach Rex Ryan had his way, his squad wouldn’t be the only ones beating the Patriots.* In fact, he went on a mini-rant about it recently: “I think we have to find somebody out there to beat New England besides us, and I think that would help. Anybody out there that wants to sign up for it? Are you good enough as a team to beat the New England Patriots. Forget about us, are you good enough to go out and beat the New England Patriots? I’m challenging the league."

*This assumes Ryan isn’t attacked by his starting quarterback first.

So, you can see why Brady hates to lose to a guy like Ryan, somebody who’s got tons of bravado but also can back it up from time to time (as back-to-back AFC title game appearances will attest).

But Brady now has Chad Ochocinco on his side. Thoughts about that, Tom?

“With Chad, he’s been in a certain place for a long time and … the way he has played the game has been quite a bit different from the way we play the game,” Brady said. “I think a lot of that is just trying to get him to understand what I’m thinking.”

I love that first line, by the way, about Ochocinco and the Bengals. See, Tom, sometimes intimations of insults about another team just happen to slip out. Now maybe, you can start sympathizing with Ryan, and when he says he wants to kick Bill Belichick’s ass, he probably means it in the most humble way possible.

I was thinking that Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco and Sam Bradford may merit consideration.  All are good young quarterbacks, one of them might be the next Tom Brady? Along with Sanchez. The QB position is the most demanding on the field.

Brady: 'I'll never get over' loss to Jets

Brian, noticed your post about the Patriots and wanted to discuss some of your inaccuracies. 

First, you claim that the Patriots "did nothing in the off season" to fix their offensive line which is not entirely true. They spent a first round draft pick on Nate Solder, an offensive tackle and resigned Logan Mankins to a multi year contract.

Second, you claimed the Patriots have an "average running game".  Let's examine the numbers from last year. The Jets rushed for an average of 4.4 yards per a carry on 534 attempts. The Patriots rushed for an average of 4.3 yards per a carry on 80 fewer attempts. By your logic, could you say that both teams have an "average running game" or with 80 more attempts you could presume that the Patriots average would be equal or better than the Jets.

Lastly, you stated that "The Pats are lucky that they get 4 AUTOMATIC wins every YEAR playing the DOLPHINS AND THE BILLS,If they were in the AFC SOUTH OR NFC EAST They wouldn't be 14 and 2 anymore".  Again, judging from that logic shouldn't the Jets have four automatic wins each season too. 

From 2001 to 2010 the New England Patriots have had only one season where they did not have at least 10 wins on the season. That one year they went 9-7. During that same time, the New York Jets records (2001-2010): 2001 (10-6) 2002 (9-7) 2003 (6-10) 2004 (10-6) 2005 (4-12) 2006  (10-6) 2007 (4-12) 2008 (9-7) 2009 (9-7) 2010 (11-5).  In 05' and 07' looks like the Jets got their 4 AUTOMATIC wins against the DOLPHINS AND BILLS.

"FAT DADDY HAYNESWORTH OR ELLIS have NOT played one down yet". PRACTICE, are we talking about PRACTICE, again.~Mr. Allen Iverson

I can appreciate your passion but think your presentation is a little inaccurate.  I do agree that making it into the playoffs and advancing is a big deal however without the Colts laying down in the regular season in 09' your Jets would have not had the opportunity to go to their first AFC championship game in the last decade.
