Ready for San Diego
In a conference call with the west coast media, Tom Brady talked about his thoughts on the upcoming home-opener game against the Chargers:
“They've got a great team. I know they think they've improved from last year. There's 11 Pro Bowlers last year, one of the best running backs of all time, the best tight end in the league, a great offensive line, a Pro Bowl quarterback, two of the best outside linebackers in the game. They have a ball-hawking secondary, a great group of linebackers, the best nose tackle in the league. They're great at every position.
“We played these guys in a very meaningful game last year. We came out ahead and I'm sure they've had this highlighted on their schedule for a long time, and so have we. It should be a great contest. The team that is more prepared and the team that executes better is going to win the game.
“I tell you, it's a great defense. They're able to rush the passer, they're a pressure defense. It's a great team. Any time you play great teams, they're going to win their fair share of battles. I just hope we can go out there and play a little bit better than we played the last time that we played them.”

With two well matched teams, the game is sure to be nail-biter. I hope all the "spying" hoopla wasn't too much of a distraction for the Patriots during practice this week. Hopefully this is where their notorious professionalism will payoff.
Good luck Tom, we'll be rooting for you!
