Tom Brady Postgame Press Conference Transcript

Posted Sep 30, 2012

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady addresses the media at Ralph Wilson Stadium following a regular season game versus the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, September 30, 2012.

On how frustrated the team was down 21-7:
Well, I think we realized we had to execute a lot better than we were executing. We talked on the sideline, we talked about it at halftime, in order to score points we can’t keep stubbing our toe. I thought we did a better job in the second half. Obviously the turnovers were huge. To get those the defense was really getting after them. The fumble before halftime was huge. We were down whatever it was, 21-7 on the road, our backs were against the wall, and I thought we showed a lot of heart. That’s what this team is made of, we’re going to battle until the end, I know that.

On what today’s performance says about this year’s Patriots team:
We lost two in a row, we go on the road, our fifth and sixth on the road including the preseason. We had two really tough losses, games that we expected to win. Then you come and play against a team that we lost to last year up 21 points, and we showed a lot of heart. That’s a lot of adversity we faced and I thought we did a really good job of responding to that in the second half.

On how good he thinks this Patriots team is right now:
Well I think we’re trying to make improvements every week. I’d say that’s what we’ve done. I know we’re 2-2, it’s not a great record, but I think we’re getting better. I think that’s what we’ve shown and you have to keep building on the good things and try to eliminate the bad things. We’re doing a good job in some areas. We ran the ball really well tonight. That was a big point of emphasis this week, and capitalizing on some of their mistakes.

On how the offense ran the ball on Buffalo’s defense today:
Well, I think they were really challenging us to run the ball. They had some little guys on the field with our big personnel groupings, so at that point you have to try and take advantage of it. You can’t just keep throwing into a heavy pass defense, so we ran it. Brandon ran great, Steven ran great, Woody (Danny Woodhead) made a huge play on the scramble for the touchdown to get us started. All of those guys really contributed.

On how he is so good handling the offense in a loud environment:
Well, I mean you’re the quarterback, so ultimately you have the last say before the ball is snapped. I’ve seen a lot of defenses; we’ve been in a lot of dogfights too. I thought our guys, the way they played, the way they competed, what a game by Wes. Brandon fought his butt off, that touchdown catch at the end was phenomenal. Gronk really fought back after some tough plays there, big touchdown. Offensive line played phenomenal with Logan out. Deion, Daniel, everybody contributed. It was really a great win for us as a team, obviously it only gets tougher from here, but we’re proud of the fact that we really fought through some pretty tough times here in the second half and came up with a big win.

On facing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos next week:
Fortunately I don’t have to go against him, so that’s really a challenge for our defense. They’ll put a good week of practice in hopefully and be prepared, but he’s one of the best to ever play. It’s always an exciting game, we’ve got a great history against Denver, recent history. I’m sure it will be another tough game.

On what Patriots owner Robert Kraft was talking to him about walking off the field:
I don’t know, I think it was pretty personal. Thank you guys, have a good day.
