Tom Brady joined WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan radio show today, a weekly tradition for the Quarterback, to chat all things Buffalo Bills.
Brady responded to the fans who were present yesterday when the Bills defeated the Colts, chanting, “We want Brady!”
“Well, we’ll be there,” Brady said with a laugh. “Sunday at 1 is going to be a pretty exciting game. They obviously have a lot of confidence. Coach Ryan, Rex has brought that to a lot of places he’s [coached]. We’ll be ready to go. They’re not an easy team to prepare for, but we’ll be ready to go when the ball’s kicked off. If you love football, Sunday at 1 in Orchard Park will be a great place to be.”
He gave the Bills credit and called them a tough team.
“They’re a tough team. Look, they’ve had a good defense and they play really well at home,” he said. “We know it’s going to be a tough test this week because it’s always tough against them. I know we’ve had a pretty good record against them over the years, but it’s always tight games, certainly playing in Buffalo. It’s a very, very loud stadium. It’s an old stadium, but it’s surprisingly very, very loud. It’s a great environment for football. We’ll be tested, there’s no doubt. They’ve got a real good football team.”

Bill Belichick also joined WEEI to talk about the upcoming matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Belichick said the drive of the week for the Patriots was the start of the 2nd half. He liked the way his team moved it
He also dished a little on the NFL Network special about him, titled “Do Your Job.” You can listen to his full audio HERE. .
Belichick also gave his weekly conference call interview with the media, yesterday. He talked about how well Tyrod Taylor is playing and his ability to run.
“The Ravens used him some in like gadget or Wildcat-type plays – those kind of plays – and so we’ve seen him do that before. I know that, or what you kind of hear through the grapevine, is that they always liked him in Baltimore. Obviously they liked [Joe] Flacco as well, which is understandable,” Belichick said. “But then when Taylor had a chance to go somewhere else, to go to Buffalo and probably given a chance to compete for a job there, he took that opportunity and it looks like he made the most of it. I don’t think there’s ever been anything negative about Taylor. I think there’s always been a level of respect for his skill set, his athleticism and his playmaking ability at that position. He was just playing behind Flacco, so he didn’t get many opportunities to do it.”
He also said he hasn’t seen much of a change in the way a Rex Ryan defense plays.
“I think Rex has played variations of 4-3, 3-4. The same guys are at the end of the line. Whether you want to call the guy an end or an outside linebacker, I’m not sure – it’s a matter of semantics,” he said. “I think that’s pretty similar. I don’t see a lot of big changes there. What was the first part of the question?
