Tom Brady joined the guys Dennis, Callahan & Minihane on their WEEI Boston radio show as usual this Monday morning to talk perfect season and the NFL trade deadline.
Brady was asked about being 7-0 and the possibility of going undefeated, but Brady isn’t ready to talk about anything of the sort.
“That would be the furthest thing from anybody’s mind,” he said. “I [couldn’t] really care less about those type of things. When you reflect back, you think, ‘Wow, that was a great year.’ But when you’re in the middle of it, you can’t do anything about a game in December. We’ve got one mission, it’s this week. It sounds like a cliche but it’s not, because it works, and it’s what our team’s about. We’re short-term focused.
“Like I said, every week you put together a different plan. Coach [Bill Belichick] talks about, it’s a blank canvas. You start each week and you’ve got to put the same amount of work in every single week. And you can’t forget one detail. And then you get one chance to go out there and do it on Sunday.
“It’s hard to win. It’s really hard to win. It’s easy to take it for granted, because we have a good record and we’ve played well for a period of time. But I don’t think we as players ever take it for granted, because I’ve been around long enough to realize how hard it is to get the ball in the end zone, to put together drives. It’s no easy task. You’ve got to keep working at it.”
He also said he doesn’t pay attention the trade deadline.
“I certainly don’t pay attention to it. There’s a lot of roster transactions on a weekly basis, and Coach Belichick handles all those things with all the people in the scouting department. I have no idea. With a hard salary cap there’s a lot of ramifications to trades and so forth. I know we’ve made some in the past. But it’s very different than other leagues.”
