Tom Brady

Tom Brady guided the New England Patriots to win over the St. Louis Rams in the biggest game of the year and hasn’t looked back and hasn’t looked back. He took the spot of starting quarterback from Drew Bledsoe in a controversy of sorts in the 2002 NFL season. In a short NFL conference call interview, I had the chance to ask him about the quarterback situation between him and Bledsoe and the AFC East division in general.

Chris Yandek: Do you think you handled the quarterback situation well between you and Drew Bledsoe during the 2002-2003 NFL Season?

Tom Brady: “I had a tremendous amount of respect for Drew. He was the guy I watched growing up. He has been a great player in this league for a long time. I was lucky enough to learn how to play a little of this game from him. I wish him the best. I just think he was the guy that really set a great standard.”

CY: Is the AFC East the toughest division in football?

TB: “I think that is tough to say at least from my standpoint. I think there are tough teams in the AFC East. I don’t know if it’s the first toughest or second toughest. I have no idea. I think the AFC East is a very good division. The New York Jets always seem to be pretty good, Buffalo has a history, and Miami is always tough. It’s a tough division.”
