Three Patriots that will give the Texans a hard time


"I would love to play five more years". During the course of most his answers, the 41-year-old quarterback reiterated his desire to strictly talk about football. "The last couple years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should have been". "And if they're not going to get it from August through January then they've got to get it from February through July or else I'm not doing my job as a parent".

'And I think I'm not ready to say that I'm done, because I don't feel like I am.

"All I do is focus on controlling what I can control and what I can control is today, my meetings, my practice today, trying to be the best I can be today". "I'm excited for this season". I'm sure there's people that doubt Tom [Brady], which, he's the best quarterback of all time.

Tom Brady came as close as probably ever will to publicly describing his feelings about whatever drama was occurring with the New England Patriots last season, admitting that "relationships ebb and flow". He runs a lot of scout-team plays for us on offense, kind of like Rodney (Harrison) used to do.

In response to a question about his weekly appearance on WEEI's morning show, "Kirk and Callahan", Brady initially said he doesn't know whether he'll continue to call in for interviews.

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. But ours is just to the tenth degree.

" Chelsea had Sarri come in and I understand that the club did not want to lose its best player". Drinkwater, meanwhile, has been tipped to leave after also being overlooked by Sarri.

'Or maybe I'm just caring more about things that really matter - like my family, like people's health, like life and death. I don't still give a (expletive) that much anymore.

The four-time Pro Bowler was Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, 2014 and 2015 and never missed a game until 2016, when he started struggling with a back injury that ended his season.

HAVING HIS WAY: Aside from his late-game heroics last season, Brady has been equally steady against the Texans during his career. It'll be a challenge for me. He sounds like he's a decent frame of mind after that melodramatic (by the Patriots' standards) offseason, his teammates love him, and if he can remain healthy, he's going to be the king of beasts once again. "I think I'm seeing there's definitely an end coming". "I think it's a very deep group, so I think the leadership extends far beyond the guys that were elected for that".

"Once you stop, you're done".

"Obviously, we're both AFC teams, so a lot of times, playing in these early games [determines] a lot of things down the line". "That's why you've got to go through it, so we'll see where we're at".

O'Brien isn't just blowing smoke when it comes to what he said about Gronkowski as they enter the Week 1 game because it is true that Gronkowski is, in, fact, the best tight end in all of the National Football League when he's healthy.
