An interesting quote came out of Tom Brady on Wednesday during his locker room session with reporters in New England.
During a discussion about the difficulties of playing in the New Meadowlands Stadium, Brady voiced some displeasure with fans leaving early during last week’s 38-17 win over Bengals at Gillette Stadium. Basically, he noticed, and wasn’t thrilled about it.
“The road environment is very different from our friendly home crowd, who, when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game. Communication is always an issue.
“We work on it a lot in practice, I think we worked on it in training camp quite a bit. Last year we didn’t do a very good job of it and that was painfully obvious to all of us. We’ve got to do a better job of it this year.”
Here’s guessing that many in Patriots Nation agree with Tom Terrific, but probably not everyone. What’s your take on Brady’s comments? Is this simply a rallying call from the quarterback to the fans, or more?
