Tom Brady didn’t see a snap of Andrew Luck’s comeback

New England Patriots quarterback Brady shakes hands with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Luck at the conclusion of the fourth quarter of their NFL football game in Foxborough Reuters

While most of the rest of us couldn’t take our eyes off Andrew Luck’s amazing comeback against the Chiefs Saturday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady didn’t really notice.

Brady said his focus was on the other side of the ball, refusing to get drawn into a battle-of-the-generations quarterback storyline.

Truthfully, I’m not worried about the opposing quarterback,” Brady told Boston sports radio station WEEI, via Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com. “I’m thinking about the defense and what I need to do to play against them.

“I didn’t watch one snap of Indy’s offense, nor will I this week. I’ll be focused on the defense and what we need to do score points, because that’s what my job is.”

While that priority is reasonable, the challenge of staying upright will be paramount for Brady, with Robert Mathis on the other side. Mathis had 19.5 sacks in the regular season, and has sacked Brady five times in seven games.

“And like I said, it all starts with Robert Mathis and being the defensive player of the year, basically, 19.5 sacks, he kind of wreaks a lot of havoc,” Brady said. “We’ve got to be able to figure out how to slow him down and then we’ve got to be really balanced on offense like we’ve been. We’ve got to run it, and when we throw, we’ve got to throw it good.”

Especially if they have the lead in the fourth quarter, since the guy Brady didn’t watch throws it good then too.

    Smart man. Until Luck starts at linebacker, there’s no need for Brady to waste time watching him.

    Do your job is the Patriots mantra. It helps not to worry about the other side of the ball and to study the opposition’s defense if you are a quarterback. Brady works as hard as any quarterback when it comes to preparation. No quarterback is better at managing the clock. Look for Brady to exploit the Colts deep with slot receivers doing double moves up field. The Colts are fast and cheat on defense so Brady will be looking to counter their style.

  7. weepingjebus says: Jan 6, 2014 10:36 AM

    Good for him, I watched it and I can’t shake the vision of Luck’s hillbilly beard and balding-when-wet head. You stay focused on victory Tom, and I’ll stay focused on re-learning how to sleep with the lights off.

    Brady was drafted way low than Andrew Luck. Off course he’s not going talk great about Luck. Also, its his job to study defenses as a QB

    I’m not a Pats fan. That being said I hate to see Manning get so much hype as the best ever. Manning played in a dome most of his career. Now manning has the league’s best wrs and a beast te. Brady plays in some of the nations worst weather, has new wideouts every year, and always wins. The guy is easily the best qb in the game. Anyone else in the past 30 years that you would argue is better than Brady, probably played in Florida or California. I don’t even like Brady or the Pats but guve the guy some credit, he is a baller and has a hot rich wife!

  12. truths4all says: Jan 6, 2014 10:43 AM

    With one single playoff win of a wildcard game, the move to canonize Luck already is being pushed by the weak-minded.

    To gush over Luck’s one wildcard round win while ignoring the accomplishments of Manning, Brees, and Brady in the playoffs seems silly and insulting to the 3 future HOFers. When you add in the historic futility the Chiefs have produced in the playoffs, another KC collapse and loss does not seem remarkable.

  15. truthfactory says: Jan 6, 2014 10:46 AM

    I honestly don’t see how the Colts can win this game. The Pats will have their WR’s running short crossing routes which Indy has shown they are completely incapable of covering (see game vs KC among many others) and they will pound the rock over and over again.

    Meanwhile on in regards to Colts offense, the only guy that kind of scares you is TY Hilton and they will use Talib on him. I give a strong advantage to NE in this game, but crazier things have happened.

  19. cajunaise says: Jan 6, 2014 10:48 AM

    Brady’s logic is absolutely sound. He should be concentrating on what the Colts do defensively.

    That being said, the Colts are perfectly happy with elite teams not being overly concerned with #12. It’s worked in their favor all season.

  20. jharmon64 says: Jan 6, 2014 10:49 AM

    Brady is a class act and a great player.

    It’s always humorous to see all the haters.

    I only root against him because he’s great on the football field and I’m tired of hearing about him. But I do respect the guy and his talents.

  21. bullcharger says: Jan 6, 2014 10:51 AM

    “Especially if they have the lead in the fourth quarter, since the guy Brady didn’t watch throws it good then too.”

    Brady’s not so bad at 4th quarter comebacks himself.

  22. cheezycolt says: Jan 6, 2014 10:51 AM

    Tigerlilac, how exactly do the Colts cheat on defense? I ask because this is the first I’m hearing of it. I know everyone is over SpyGate, but you still better come correct wjen calling out ”cheaters.”

    Chargersdiehard, is it your belief that weather makes the quarterback? Super Bowl rings? Fine. Clutch performances? Ok. Working with less talent? Sure. There are plenty of arguments to be made for Brady over Manning (and vice versa), but weather as the defining quality? C’mon, man!

  23. belicheckisgod says: Jan 6, 2014 10:52 AM

    Why would he watch Lucks comeback? He could easily watch one of his many own comebacks, maybe the Denver Broncos game this year against Payton Manning. Brady is pretty good at comebacks against elite qbs himself.

    Brady is considered the “best” because he won Superbowls while being an efficient game manager over a decade on a team with a GREAT defense, running game, coach, and efficient QB play.

    Since then, a lot of that has faded, and Brady has become a much better QB, but has not really won a championship since most of the weight has been on him.

    This year they have a good defense, good running game, great coaching, and good passing attack. Similar formula to their Superbowl wins so we’ll see what happens.

    The bottom line is Peyton and Tom are responsible for one thing… putting up points on the board. Peyton has done it better than Brady and by the end of his career better than any other QB in the history of the league. Brady’s numbers this year are extremely similar to Alex Smith, but no one considers Alex Smith amazing. And by the way, Mannings post-season QB rating is actually higher than Brady’s… It’s not Mannings fault his Defense gives up 24 ppg in the playoffs while Bradys gives up about 19.

  25. laxcoach37 says: Jan 6, 2014 11:01 AM

    I can’t believe I am agreeing with a Steelers fan on anything, but he’s correct…. It was not a Colts comeback as much as it was a Chiefs collapse.

    As for Brady, he is certainly is a major D!ck, but one of the best QB’s to ever play the game. The Pats fans are really going to miss him in another year. Having watched Marino’s and Montana’s careers, it goes from great, to good, to bad very quickly after age 37. Fact!

    Lol and double facepalm at another Ernie Adams conspiracy theory.

    Ernie is a league approved employee of the team in a league approved position. Just because he is a genius and combines his genius with that of Belichick doesn’t make it illegal. The wild claims that you and others make are amusing and give Pats fans a nice laugh whenever you make them.

    I understand, you’re a Bills fan and the vast incompetence that has been Bills management the last 15 years or so has left you eating the Pats dirt for more than a decade. It must be frustrating but you need to look at the pathetic attempts you own team has made to “compete”.

    Its called hiring competent and brilliant people instead of 2nd rate losers.

  27. metitometin says: Jan 6, 2014 11:05 AM

    Who has done more with less than Brady this year? He should be MVP considering what he’s had to work with. This may be his finest job yet considering his top 5 targets from last year are no longer with the team. Brady turns nobodies into stars. That’s what he specializes in. How many QBs can do that?

  28. ytivarg says: Jan 6, 2014 11:06 AM

    This cannot be true. In the same interview, he also said that he saw all of the games. Plus, during the game he did not know if he would play Indy or KC. He has to see Andrew Luck’s snap to study KC’s defense. So I don’t believe what Brady is saying, nor should you!

    —————————————————-
    Not every game has to be put into historical perspective. Dude’s team came back from 28 points down in the second half, and he played very well that half. It happened 2 days ago, when both Brady and Manning were off, and Brees won a tight game.

    It was an outstanding performance, and should be talked about as such. People are not taking anything away from those three. This was a singular game that deserved its hype. I don’t understand why people always have to downplay a great game because “so and so isn’t as good as 3 of the all time greats…yet.”

    On the flipside, I do understand that this argument is a backlash of the media as an overhype machine. Which is a natural reaction because that gets annoying. I just don’t think we always have to be comparing players, and should enjoy games as they are-on both sides of the coin.

  30. ricardorobertasq says: Jan 6, 2014 11:10 AM

    Brady, are you saying you only watched the Colts on defense and then turned away fromt the TV? Do you actually expect us to believe this dribble? Why wouldn’t you watch Luck when you should have been watching the KC DEFENSE?! Did you think you didn’t need to watch KC’s D because you “knew” Indy would win the game? Did you get a memo from the league? Or are you that much of an idiot that you only watched one team’s defense? Or are you really a great preparer and just lying to us so you don’t have to answer questions about Luck?

    ——–

    Brady has been “good” just like every other aspects of the Patriots team. Run game- Very Good, Defense- Good, Coaching- Excellent- Pass Game- Good.

    Why single out Brady as an MVP when he was definately only part of the an overall very good equation for the Pats this year. While Brady may turn “Nobodies into somebodies”, he also tunrs “Somebodies into nobodies”. Anyone remember Chad Johnson and Brandon Lloyd having huge drop off years once going to New England? Why?? Because they don’t run 3 yard crossing routes and screens which is where Brady excels.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I believe what they meant by “cheating” on defense is that they make a lot of guesses, jumping routes and overplaying tendencies because they generally have the speed to recover, as opposed to violating the rules set forth by the National Football League.

    So Manning doesn’t deserve hype because he played in a dome and now has good talent around him? That’s a high bar! Truth is Brady and Manning deserve all the hype they can get considering what they have done during their careers.

  37. tovar176 says: Jan 6, 2014 11:28 AM

    Andrew Lucks comeback???? You mean the Colts got Lucky, Charles got injured, along with key other players. It was not because KC totally choked. I am not a fan, but I know what I saw…I saw the chiefs slowly lose, because their players were getting injured, Brady needs to send the entire teams a get well cards, because it’s going to be an easy win for them…just reality, Cinderella story is over…

  38. footballfan58 says: Jan 6, 2014 11:28 AM

    I love how the Patriot’s get so under the skin of the trolls who hate them! Best compliment ever! Thank you!

    Your team is what you put into it. Brady has proven over and over that he’s a team player and he expects everyone on his team to have the same work ethic. Why would he be watching Andrew Luck? That’s the defense’s homework. Luck is a phenomenal QB and if we have any hope of neutralizing him, then the defense has to do their job.

    I am very impressed with Andrew Luck. But I do hope my Patriot’s win this weekend!

  39. mavtgo says: Jan 6, 2014 11:29 AM

    First of all the best gb’s are not rg111, rivers, and dalton, maybe brees but not the others. Tom is one of the best clutch gbs of all time and will go down as one of the best… It will be a good game but i think the luck will run out on luck..

    Most of the reason Tom Brady is successful is because he has such a great Coach and has had that same Coach his entire career. Belichick figured out a way to raise Brady’s strengths to another level and a way to suppress his weakness’. Belichick always finds a way to counter anything thrown at him, On the Offensive side of the ball or Defensive. Week in and out Brady knows exactly what is expected of him and always has that tight line of communication to correct things he is unsure about. Having Belichick in his corner is one of Tom Brady’s biggest and most effective weapons. Brady is a very good quarterback, but without Belichick, I’m sure we would see a very different Quarterback.

    I , myself, do it sometimes. I only watch when the pats are on offense and do some chores or something when it’s the other team on offense. Brady needs to concentrate on his job like he said. During the games you see the qb’s on the sideline ignoring the other teams offense and concentrating on their own next move. What would he gain from watching Luck? Brady already did improbable comebacks more than likely from studying the other team’s defense not offense. When he have the leisure he might go back and watch Luck and the others. With so much on the line he does not have the leisure to watch games for pleasure like we do. He studies what he needs to study like he is on the sideline while the other team is on the field playing. It’s also a waste of time to play into the media’s quarterback rivalry hoopla. Players have duties to the media and their team. The less said the better, e.g. BB.

  55. realdealsteel says: Jan 6, 2014 12:40 PM

    The parts of cjspiller’s post that he didn’t make up himself(Belichick admitted the use of a 3rd camera) are from a spygate book written by BO’Leary. Self published with his own money, by a guy that lost his license in the financial industry, because he couldn’t get a legitimate house to publish it. Cites no evidence or sources, other than a Vegas bookie and a fringe stat guy. Offers no proof of his ‘theories’. The premise of the book is statistically, the Pats are so good at home, they must still be cheating. We don’t know exactly what EAdams does, so it must be him, They go on to make the rest up, and even the author admits it’s just a theory, with no corrobereting evidence.

    Oh, I forgot, the author is a disgruntled fan of a rival team, either Jets or Steelers, I think.

    If anyone likes those kind of books, there are a couple of other ones about the US Gov’t being behind 9/11 and Obama being born in Kenya. Check em out, they’re about as legit.

    You probably think coaches cover their mouths with the playcalling sheet so they wont catch any germs?

    Maybe all coaches should start yelling the plays out loud to the offense.

    PS. I’d be mad too if I spent a high pick on CJ Spiller when Fred Jackson has outplayed him 2 of 3 years.

    You know what’s funny about Pats fans, they are to a man, incapable of separating the perceived wisdom of individuals in that organization, from their own personal intellect. They think they all share Belichick’s brain and are sleeping with Gisele.

  62. cjspiller12 says: Jan 6, 2014 1:09 PM

    And Ah, everyone in America knows the Patriots are cheaters except you people in Boston. Tom Brady couldn’t start on any other NFL team except the Patriots. Funny, even Matt Cassell went 11-5 or 12-4 on the Patriots because it doesn’t matter who plays QB, the Patriots will always succeed. Also funny how Cassell went to a Kansas City team loaded with much more talent than the Patriots and could only win two games. Why can’t you people admit it? Who is Ernie Adams and why is he the most powerful football mind that no one has ever heard of? Even owner Art Modell offered $10,000 to anyone who could tell him what Adams did! Players still to this day chuckle at the shroud of secrecy that surrounds this man today. Why does Belichick continue to hire cardboard cutouts for coordinators, young people with no experience or older failures or even hire no coordinators at all? The Patriots have no super stars on the team, and yet they can rotate anyone in at any time and be successful. How come this works only for New England? Doesn’t it even sound fishy since the magical first Super Bowl season with 6th round draft pick and virtual rookie Tom Brady behind the helm and a failed head coach in Bill Belichick calling the shots? Why has this never happended to any other team in the history of the NFL? It’s because the NFL doesn’t want to upset the apple cart on billions of dollars.

    TO ALL THE HATERS AND CHIEFS FANS…..Colts came back and won the game!!! I don’t want to hear about injuries considering the Colts have lost more players than ANY team this year. Just cause your team can not overcome adversity don’t hate on teams that can..sounds more like jealous simple minded fans. Talk about QBs making something with no names, Well I see a 2nd year QB making plays with a WR corps that lost a HOF and STILL making plays…but I guess I forgot that Hilton, Brazil, Whalen, Rogers, Fleener were all household names. I would like to see your team make the playoffs let alone win the game with the injuries the Colts have had. Face it haters, up 38-10 with 28 min to go….the more head stong team, the MORE injured team and the BETTER team won.

    go COLTS!!!!!

  66. tedmurph says: Jan 6, 2014 1:32 PM

    Cassell went 10-6 and went to the Pro- Bowl in 2010 with the Chiefs. Brady is still on everyone’s top 5 NFL QB list. Pats, the team with no stars, sent 4 to the Pro Bowl and had 3 on the All Pro team, despite missing former PBs/APs Hernandez, Wilfolk, Mayo, Gronk and Vollmer. Pats hire coordinaters from within, always have, for the most part. Modell NEVER offered 10k to find out what Adams did. Players chuckle about it? Which players cj, the ones you hang out with? Your lack of facts and capacity for BS is astonishing.

  67. metitometin says: Jan 6, 2014 1:34 PM

    Christ, won’t people give it up on the bogus Spygate BS? Note to PFT Talk: All these posts should be taken off. Every team was cheating, every team was videotaping. And it wasn’t even cheating because videotaping was legal.

    Goodell sent that memo about videotaping to every team in the NFL, not just the Patriots. If the Patriots were the only team videotaping, then why did Goodell send that memo to every team in the NFL? Because every team was videotaping, not just the Patriots. The most bogus, overblown story ever.

    And this ‘cheating’ is still going on. Why are all the coaches covering their mouths when calling plays? Because opposing teams are watching on TV, trying to gain an edge and ‘steal’ signs. Some people really need to get a freaking clue.

  68. awdlmd says: Jan 6, 2014 1:36 PM

    Brady had more important things to do. Like his wife.

  69. jayniner says: Jan 6, 2014 1:36 PM

    It’s that kind of arrogance that will get Brady and the Pats knocked out of the playoffs this weekend…

  70. fester73 says: Jan 6, 2014 1:40 PM

    Stick to the facts Brady is a good QB, he is right about not focusing on the other teams offense but give luck some credit he got the win, but then again GREAT QB’s would watch the opposing teams offense to help his defense out.

  71. tovar176 says: Jan 6, 2014 1:55 PM

    Indy fans, keep dreaming, you lost against Miami and St Louis considerably what happened to overcoming adversity then, and I will say that your “Luck” will run out and your Cinderella fairy tale is over come next Sunday…

    The reason I read articles like this, is to find comments like this

  73. thewiz37 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:06 PM

    19 Ernie Adams references on this thread. (now 20!)

  74. brazzz01 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:06 PM

    As for this game… the Colts are really good… and they have a bright future…and I really think the Pats teams of recent years would be primed for an upset this weekend… but not this year’s Pats team. This Pats team has no business being where they are and yet they’ve shown more heart than pats teams of recent years combined. They don’t know the meaning of the word quit. They’ve also shown they can beat you on the ground and it’s teams like that make deep playoff runs in January.

    Pats by 7.

  75. vikingapologist says: Jan 6, 2014 2:07 PM

    Historically , I will take Montana, Brady, All day long!!! Manning, Bree’s, are solid too, but Brady is just a stud! I am a Viking fan , so my loyalties are to ………..Cassel? Heheh, bottom line, anyone knocking Brady instantly loses all credibility and looks silly hating

  76. RE LEE says: Jan 6, 2014 2:13 PM

    Jay Niner. What arrogance? Haven’t you read BB praising the colts and Luck? BB and the pats Always have good words for their opponents. Brady’s candid words is not arrogance. It is his mental discipline on display. He knows how formidable the colts is and he is concentrating on his job. He can’t afford to muddle his brain with areas best left to others. Can he stop Luck or any other qb’s on the field? If they get knocked of the field it’s because they did not study their opponent we’ll enough or execute well enough, not because of arrogance. Brady arrogant? He never forgets that he is a six round pick. He has to prove to himself over and over again that he is good. He earned his elite status not by being arrogant but by being mentally disciplined and mentally tough.

    truthfactory says:

    “Anyone remember Chad Johnson and Brandon Lloyd having huge drop off years once going to New England?”

    Would this be the same Brandon Lloyd who had his second best season (out of 10) in his one season with the Patriots?

  78. bonniebengal says: Jan 6, 2014 2:22 PM

    I think Luck can pick apart the Patriots defense and win this game. It’s going to be high scoring for sure.

  79. weepingjebus says: Jan 6, 2014 2:26 PM

    If that oddly placed horseshoe on his gear is supposed to be intimidating, I don’t think it is working.

  80. aelsurf says: Jan 6, 2014 2:29 PM

    If you listen to the interview on D&C show, Brady did watch the games this weekend. He said he was not going to watch any offense this week. It was his job to prepare for the defense of the colts.

  81. distracted9 says: Jan 6, 2014 2:48 PM

    I don’t see how being the beneficiary of some pretty substantial injuries should be seen as a comeback of the ages.. I like the Colts and Luck but let’s be real.. Houston, Flowers, Avery, Charles and Davis are all pretty big blows to any team.

  82. fdugrad says: Jan 6, 2014 8:58 PM

    I am not a fan or detractor of The Pats, however, their QB has an admirable work ethic, even after all these years. This is but one reason his mates respect him to the last man. Everyone frequently mentions Peyton’s preparation, which is truly impressive, but Brady’s dedication is equally as fierce.

  83. chargersdiehard says: Jan 6, 2014 9:15 PM

    I didn’t say manning isn’t good. He deserves credit for being a coach on the field and breaking records. I just think Brady is better and given the same receivers would have even better numbers. Especially in the playoffs and cold weather.

  84. rogerrodgers says: Jan 6, 2014 9:32 PM

    Indie has a defense? Where? How? Say WHAT?

  85. chazatlas says: Jan 7, 2014 12:36 AM

    I didn’t watch a snap of Luck/Indy either. They play in a crap division and truly get Lucky.

  86. chazatlas says: Jan 7, 2014 12:43 AM

    If Brady & the Pats beat Luck & the Colts just HALF as bad as they did last time they played, they still win 30-24.

  87. dualprime says: Jan 7, 2014 12:41 PM

    If Mathis can get to Brady early and often, Colts have a chance. Otherwise, Pats/Broncos in Denver for the AFC.
