Brady: "The mourning period is over"

The party may still be on in New Orleans, but Tom Brady said Wednesday the hangover is over in New England.

“The mourning period is over,” Brady said Wednesday.  “I’m not so concerned with last week’s game at this point.  I’ve moved on to Miami.  That game has come and gone.  We can’t do anything to change it.  Let’s go play Miami, I think that is the attitude in the locker room.”

Brady said Tuesday was used by the team “to get their mind back in the right perspective.”

They better do it fast.  Coming off a short week, the Patriots travel to Miami to face a Dolphins franchise they have swept only twice in the Brady/Belichick era.  After New England’s last devastating loss — to Indianapolis — the Patriots handled their rival New York Jets at home.

This matchup presents a tougher test.

“The goal this week is to beat Miami and to play a better game than we
played last week.  We’re 7-4, you know? We’re ahead two games in the
division. The season is not lost, by any stretch,” Brady said.

“When you don’t play
good football you lose games. I don’t think that is a new revelation
for any of us. . . . We’re still trying to make improvements over the courseof the next five weeks.  There’s a lot of football to be played.  A win this week would do a lot for us.”

The Patriots have traditionally closed strong, but they also traditionally haven’t been blown out after Thanksgiving.  That’s only happened twice in the Brady era before Monday. 

The last time: A 21-0 December loss to the Dolphins in 2006 in Miami.

    Every team plays a bad game here and there. The only difference is that, when you play a bad game against St Louis (for example) you still win. When you play a bad game against one of the NFL “elite”, you get blowed out (thanks emitt smiff)

    Considering this Dolphins game is the toughest remaining on the schedule, I’m glad it’s coming off such a humbling loss. The Pats usually bring their ‘A’ game after a defeat.
    That said, the time is now to make some serious adjustments and get some balance back to the offense. The running game is relatively effective, but Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk need to carry the ball more than 5 and 2 times per game, respectively.

  5. Kiss Bills Rings says: Dec 2, 2009 1:45 PM

    Brady is right…the Saints game is history, the Miami Dolphins are priority #1 & winning thais upcomming game is 10 times huger then it was to beat the Saints….A victory against Miami does 3 things:
    A) basically clinches the division title
    B)gets them that illusive road victory that they’ve been after
    C)sets the tone for the remaining regular season & possibly a 1st round bye if they win out based on who the Chargers & Bengals have to play & how they finish….
    NOW the fun really begins!!!
    GO PATRIOTS!!!!!

    You mean winning going 36-10 is dropped off? That’s what the Patriots are since the start of 2007. Or maybe you want to discount the Jets win. That’s 35-10. 35/45*100 = 77.78% Which is almost identical to what the Patriots were winning before the spygate story broke.
    Amazing, yea?

    Hey Stairway: Which Superbowl team did you play for? I suppose the same mantra would follow for all knucklehead fans. Perhaps you haven’t noticed that players do it after many good plays. Saints players are some of the most classy in the business (Shockey excluded of course, but he’s been the same way since the U).
    Let’s not even get into the Who Dat (Louisiana high school chant dating back to the 1960’s) and Who Dey (believed to have begun in 1981) debate. As a Steelers fan, I don’t doubt you first remember hearing it in an inter-division rivalry game.

    Get it right, MORON. The Bengals’ chant is “Who DEY”. Sounds like SOUR GRAPES to me, given that the Bengals took a BROOM to your team this season. And the ONLY thing that talks is RIGHT NOW…as in YOUR TEAM SUCKS so it’s YOU who needs to STFU! Let the Saints fans enjoy their stellar season…they probably let your team do the same in years past.
    As far as respecting the Pats, that’s a JOKE…since they haven’t beaten ONE SINGLE GOOD TEAM this season. And as far as the “rings talk” thing…that is the PAST. And nothing from the past affects THIS SEASON, fool. All you have to do is look at your mediocre team to see that.

Patsies winning 34-14 (please no flaming if I didnt remember the actual score, I’m not a machine) who’s there throwing deep at the end of 4th quarter? Brady… Patsies getting their A** handed to them by the Saints, who’s getting pulled and saying basically ehh we give up you win… Brady…

    I am beginning to think that the Patriots aren’t really even concerned with winning this season. There wasn’t any emotion on Monday night. NONE. No one was fired up. No one was angry, yelling. Just ho hum.
    I am thinking that the Pats are concerned minimally with winning this year. They will be concerned in the playoffs, sure, but I think they are really in a building mode this year. They are building the defense, and soon will build up their lines so they can protect Brady and put pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

  33. INTENSEG says: Dec 2, 2009 3:46 PM

    The Saints were the first with the Who Dat chant for over 20 years, the Bengals came up with that stupid Who Dey chant just a few years ago.

    I know you have already been corrected on the “who dat” line, but I’ll bring up your comparisons of the Patriots to the Saints in how they celebrate. The Patriots are perennial superbowl contenders who have won it all, and many times over. They’ve been there before and their coach steers that ship very well.
    The Saints, on the other hand, have been a franchise mired in a wreck of bad personnel moves, coaches, what have you. They’ll have a good year here or there but have largely been irrelevant for well over a decade, if not longer.
    This gives you a recipe for a greater celebration. The MNF game wasn’t just playing the Patriots. It was playing the goldenboy of the NFL, the class, leading franchise of the NFL. Even though the Patriots didn’t win the superbowl last year, it is still widely accepted that they are one of the best teams in the league, and they are still running with their dynasty.
    I’m willing to guess that the celebrations you see were very figurative in meaning & concept. If you’re a bad team for 20 years and beat a dynasty of a team that has won 3 superbowls or so in the last 5-6 years, it means a little more than if you’re the dyansty and you beat an (at the time) 0-5 team in the Titans. Obviously the celebrations are not going to be the same. The saying goes “act like you’ve been there before.” The Patriots have, many times over. The Saints have not, at least not in our generation.
    So give the Saints a break, eh? It’s like the Lions – you almost pull for them because they haven’t been good for so long. I am not necessarily rooting for the Saints to go all the way, but I’m not rooting against them either. I’m just happy they’re enjoying their success.

    stairway27:
    You really need to get your facts straight before you start disparaging a team, organization or fans.
    First off, “Who Dat” is way older than “Who Dey”. Saints fans and other football fans have been chanting “Who Dat” for decades. It wasn’t stolen from the Bengals at all. It is a Louisiana original. (I always thought it was a little stupid, but I also think the “Terrible Towels” are kinda childish also.)
    Second, Saints fans are some of the classiest and most passionate football fans you will ever meet. They have to be, given the almost total lack of success of the team since it’s inception. I have been to several NFL venues for NFL games and have seen many instances of totally obnoxious and criminal activity in many of them. I have seen very little of that in decades of watching Saints football. Passion yes, obnoxious, no. Few fans have been through as much heartache as Saints fans.
    Thirdly, on the dancing bit and being excited. The players are excited because they are having success and are caught up in the way the city and region have gone “all in” on the Saints. Can’t fault them for that.
    Finally, I like the Steelers, my wife is a Steelers fan from way back and if the Black and Gold meets the other Black and Gold in the Super Bowl I don’t know how that is going to work out in my house. Terry Bradshaw is total class and I think he would like to see the Saints bring home a Lombardi trophy to Louisiana. I think Bradshaw is a closeted Saints fan, are you going to call him classless?

The only clown here is YOU, fool…and it is YOU who should be banned forthwith.
    Finally, as regards the “gay thing”….remember, you are the one who roots for the team based in an area [New Eng(ay)land] and a state [Massachusetts] that champions legalized gay marriage. To each his own, I say…and it appears that your fellow citizens champion the gay lifestyle. Your association with that brings your own sexual proclivities under scrutiny more than mine, fool.

    Get it right, MORON. The Bengals’ chant is “Who DEY”. Sounds like SOUR GRAPES to me, given that the Bengals took a BROOM to your team this season. And the ONLY thing that talks is RIGHT NOW…as in YOUR TEAM SUCKS so it’s YOU who needs to STFU! Let the Saints fans enjoy their stellar season…they probably let your team do the same in years past.
    *********************************************
    Nice chip you got there on that shoulder. I doubt we’ll be waiting long before the Bengals once again mire at the bottom of the AFC Central, duking it out with the Browns over which team can claim the title of Ohio’s Shittiest. The fact of the matter is, the Bengals are little more than a one-hit wonder that can’t even manage to find a consistent group of players that avoid making the organization look like an undisciplined, childish embarrassment. Savor it while it lasts.
    —————————————————
    As far as respecting the Pats, that’s a JOKE…since they haven’t beaten ONE SINGLE GOOD TEAM this season. And as far as the “rings talk” thing…that is the PAST. And nothing from the past affects THIS SEASON, fool. All you have to do is look at your mediocre team to see that.
    *********************************************
    Again, more chip-on-the-shoulder bullshitting. If you want to start talking about mediocrity, let’s look at some of the teams that the Bengals have managed to lose to this year — the Raiders and the Texans? Aside from managing to beat two division opponents who are performing below what is typically observed from them (and by an average margin of 5.5 points across the four wins, nonetheless – dominance at its finest) and the Packers during Week 2, they’ve not done anything worth acting like a dick about. Just sayin.
    And knock it off with the caps lock – it makes you look like a 12-year-old.

    @hayward giablommi
    you’re right. i should have done a little more research. on second look, all these things have been experienced during the “Brady era”.
    can’t finish close games (2006, 2009 vs colts)
    can’t win on the big stage (thanks david tyree)
    can’t make the playoffs (2002, 2008)
    can’t win without your own rules (Brady rule(s))
    and please point out your record post SpyGate again. i love how you do that with blatant disregard for the postseason, and then give Indy crap for the same thing

    @ pubobby2004
    Great arguments, pubobby2004, when you isolate a few small examples of failure out of a huge sample size without recognizing the larger, overwhelming percentage of success during what you defined as the “Brady era”.
    Let’s examine, shall we?
    “can’t finish close games (2006, 2009 vs colts)”
    ^^^^
    I can count on one hand the games this decade where the Pats have had trouble finishing: 2004 @ Miami, @ Indy 2006 and 2009, Giants in 2007 and Denver 2009.
    But did finish close games in 2003, 2004, 2007 regular seasons vs. Colts. Who else? Raiders in 2001. Rams in SB 36. Panthers in SB 38. Chargers in 2006 playoffs. Finished off Philly and Baltimore in very tough games in 2007. Finished close games vs. Buffalo and Baltimore this year.
    “can’t win on the big stage (thanks david tyree)”
    ^^^^^
    But did finish on the biggest stage in 2001, 2003, 2004. Beat Indy in the playoffs on a big stage in 2003 and 2004, Steelers on a big stage (and on their home field in 2001 and 2004), Chargers on big stages in 2006 and 2007.
    “can’t make the playoffs (2002, 2008)”
    ^^^^^
    But made the playoffs 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, and a shoo-in to make the 2009 postseason..
    “can’t win without your own rules (Brady rule(s))”
    ^^^^^
    but could win despite Bill Polian and the Colts lobbying the league re: defensive holding (the Polian rules) after the Pats defeated the Colts in the 2003 AFCCG. Beat the Colts even worse with the Polian Rules in effect in 2004, 20-3, despite the Colts being heavily favored.
    In summary, pubobby, it’s clear you are anti-Patriots. That is fine with me, suit yourself. This may not be the Pats year, so be it. But you blatantly distorting facts to suit your own agenda is just very unfortunate. I hate plenty of teams, but can have enough respect to give credit where credit is due. You should try it some time.

    Especially in the cradle of sports hatred, New England, where the baseball fans there have hated on their daddies, the Yankees, for nearly a century. How funny for those same New England morons to try and call anyone “clueless” or “dipshits”.
    Still defending the Pats, eh, “PHINSfan”. Might as well fess up, you are no more a “PHINSfan” than “co”ward is a straight guy.

    just so we are on the same page… i AM an avid pats hater. i’ve got hate in my heart, and i let it out. i will certainly give respect when it’s due. but it’s not. this is gonna hurt, but you’re basically the yankees of the NFL. and i hate the yankees, too.

    The Yankees of the NFL? In their DREAMS. Three titles in fifty years makes them more the Red Sox of the NFL (7 titles in 109 years, the same ratio). NO team in the NFL is even close to the Yankees and if there is any team that is, it would be the Steelers (this coming from a Niners fan).
    But keep on hating, puobby…just remember that in comparison to the jealous hatred that New Englanders have for the Yankees, it pales by comparison. LMFAO!!!!
