Defensive stance
In separate radio interviews yesterday, Brady and cornerback Randall Gay responded to criticisms that the Patriots are running up the score. Brady, in his weekly interview on WEEI, responded passionately when asked if the starters are staying in too long. "We're still trying to make improvements and we're trying to play extremely well," he said. "We're not trying to win 42-28, we're trying to kill teams, we're trying to blow them out if we can. You want to build momentum for each week, you don't want to be up, 42-7 or 35-7, and all of a sudden you look up and it's 35-21. We don't want to be part of that, you don't want to go into next week realizing that for the last 18 minutes of the game your team didn't play well, or didn't play up to its capabilities. You gave other teams momentum for the next time they play you, or you gave another team a reason not to be intimidated." Gay, on ESPN Radio's "Game Night" program, said, "It kind of makes me mad when you hear somebody from the other team's defense going, 'They shouldn't have done that; that's disrespect.' Do we think it's disrespect when they went and picked up their checks for letting a team score 50 points on them? That should be disrespect; that you went to your owner and said, 'All right, pay me for that game I just played.' You can't look at it like that. You have to go out there and do your best. If somebody is blowing you out, you have to play harder. You have to stop them."

 

 

I just posted all of this instead of a link because it's pretty short. I think Brady hits the nail on the head. This isn't junior high football, it's the NFL. The concept of disrespecting your opponent by scoring a lot of points simply should not exist.

The Pats rotate a lot of players so it's not like they have the "starters" in every single play but ultimatley it is the NFL & the NFL is a business & if you can't take it get the fuck out.

It's all well and good until someone "accidentally" takes his knee out and then the Pats will cry and cry.

Exactly. And have your potential history-making season ruined because you gave less than your best effort.
