Brady in the midst of another drive for five — PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

TYREEK HILLTYREEK HILL

"I actually didn't wear a knee brace back then", said Brady.

"The last couple of years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should've been", Brady said. Some of it was my approach. "But I think I can do it". "We played a safety where we didn't know what he was going to do, so we would tell Vrabel to read the quarterback, do whatever you want".

It will be hard for the Texans to challenge Gronkowski this Sunday, but if they want a chance to win this game and to start off the season with a win, keeping Gronkowski will be a task they must face head-on - but that is easier said than done. They want to talk about a lot of drama and I'm sure teams have a lot of things like that.

Speaking to the overblown nature of it all, Brady gave his most honest answer yet in regards to how he views such angles. I think a lot of keeping things into perspective.

"I've realized there's people that doubt the best players in the history of the game". I mean, I'm a pretty mentally tough guy so I deal with a lot of circumstances over a long period of time - 18, 19 years - and I'm excited for the season.

Week 1 is important for many reasons. This is a real confirmation of how far James White - who joins Chung, Tom Brady, David Andrews, Devin McCourty and Matthew Slater as captains - has come on the field and in terms of leadership. He fell short of winning his sixth Super Bowl title, however, when the Philadelphia Eagles toppled the Patriots in February.

In a recent interview shared by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Brady stated that he is still hoping to play five more NFL seasons.

"I don't want to bring on any drama this year", Brady said on Friday instead saying that his focus was on being a good leader.

Star defensive end J.J. Watt, linebacker Whitney Mercilus and quarterback Deshaun Watson were among 21 Houston players that spent time on injured reserve during the 2017 campaign. I don't think it's going to be easy. "To worry about a lot of [expletive] that people may say or think or feel, like, I really don't care anymore". Not only does Watson have Comeback Player of the Year aspirations after his torn ACL, many expect Watson to compete for MVP this season.

Asked if he's satisfied with the current arrangement between Guerrero and the Pats, Brady said, "Yeah". But he is aware of the concern that looms over the unit before their game against Tom Brady, who torched them for 378 yards and. I still feel like there's things to accomplish.

"To be on this team, you have to be a good football player and the guys that are out there certainly I have a lot of confidence in". And until you get them into the game and [they] take some hits and they have to plant and make sharp turns and all of those kinds of things, you don't know if they're really back. Why not finish it off?
