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.

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

I just hope the Jets make the playoffs to beat the Pats again. It is so much fun to watch.

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

Forget about beating playoff caliber teams consistently?  What kind of a moron would even think that up, much less post it?  They have been pounding playoff caliber teams for the last 11 seasons.  They beat the Jets 10 or 11 straight times on their own home field.  Now you're calling Brady into question?  The lack of football knowledge displayed by some on here is amazing.  They were 14 and friggin 2 last season, and no they did not win the Super Bowl.  Only 1 team did.  But the Pats are in contention year in and year out.  The SB is their goal each year, not hoping to get to .500 or maybe eek out 6 wins like the Browns and these other bottom feeding teams.  To have bitter disappointment you actually have to have had something important on the line, something a Browns fan would have no experience with.

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

That's brilliant.  Yup, let's get rid of the QB that we've won three Super Bowls with and finished 14-2 and made it to the AFC Championship game with just last year.  Yup, let's get rid of Brady because that would increase your chances of winning.  Uh huh.  Do you realize how idiotic that sounds?  If you hit Peyton Manning ANY QB it will increase your chances of winning, that's not unique to Tom Brady, doofus.

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

How many hand signals did the Patriots tape really? Sorry, I'm a realist.  They can forget beating playoff-caliber teams consistently, especially the Jets, because they have to beat them fair and square.  It's obvious that you have to keep Brady off the field when playing these scrubs, and it's slowly but surely becoming easier against their defense.  As far as the offense, beating that unit is very simple.  Emmit Smith said it best, "hit Tom Brady."  "Put him on his butt."  Realistically, they could get Roddy White, Ochocinco, Chris Johnson, Vonta Leach, and Dallas Clark, and they still wouldn't win a Super Bowl!  As I read this article, I begin to wonder if their greatest strength is also their greatest weakness.  Maybe all their "great" drafts have been for nought.  Maybe...the real problem with the Patriots...is the man under center.  If so, good luck fixing it with Mallet.  Laughing

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

The NFL draft is not science.  Joe Montana was passed over by every team and was the 82nd pick in 1979.  Unlike Brady, Joe still hasn't thrown an interception in the Super Bowl.  Before we continue to talk about the greatness of Tom Brady, we shouldn't label him as the best ever.  Currently, Tom Brady is on a three playoff game losing streak with two in a row at home.  As for the Jets losing 45-3 on MNF during the regular season, I can guarantee that anyone would accept a 45-3 loss if he knew he was going to beat the same team in the playoffs, in their crib.  Regular season wins are good, but road playoff wins are very special.

I appreciate Brady's candor about the playoff loss to the Jets.  It's his "fans" who are diluting his feelings by sticking Brady's accomplishments in everyone's face.  If the Patriot fans are satisfied with an 18-0 start and losing the Super Bowl coupled with two first round playoff losses at home, more power to them.

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

    I don't knw where Brady's getting flak from because it's certainly not around here.  I guess your interpretation is correct,  Brady has always shown to be "childish and not ultra-competitive."  Especially being passed on by ever team in the NFL not one time but six, then turing out to be a HOF QB.  Winning three superbowls, numerous division titles,  and MVP's. Yep, doesn't sound like he is competitive at all.
I am also pretty sure that Brady will not try to work hard or want to win because he is still devistated by the loss.
   Different players motivate themselve different ways and if storing a loss in your head and using it at motivation is one particular individuals way then so be it.  If anyone tell you the have moved beyond a loss similar to the one last year then they are either a liar, or they have accepted losing. Brady is better at his craft then you, me or anyone else on this board (I must admit, I'm pretty good at what I do) and to question what he uses as motivation to improve himself as a player and as a team is irresponsible.   I would like you to show me an NFL Anaylyst with Brady's resume say that what he said was "out of line"  with the comments he made.  Good Luck!!

In FAT uation

“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."
Belichick needs to get a restraining order on this guy. Maybe the league needs to fine him or something.

I wonder if this dude sits outside Bill's window at night with binoculars.

I had a dream last night that Rex "the strange creep" Ryan came to Gillette Stadium and snatched one of the Lombardi trophys ... kind of like Shooter Mc Gavin stole and ran away with Happy Gilmore's gold jacket.

What if Ryan never wins the Jets a Super Bowl? How will his strange obsession with the Patriots be looked at in NFL history in years to come?
