Brady well prepared for showdown with 49ers
BOSTON (WHDH) -- After three Super Bowl titles and a handful of NFL records, it’s hard to imagine that Tom Brady could still be improving.
But that's exactly what we're seeing, as the Patriots quarterback is having arguably one of the best seasons of his 13-year career.
The Patriots' number 12 recognized the significance of Wednesday's date: 12-12-12.
“I know what a day. It's not going to happen again, so enjoy that,” said Brady.
Something we're betting will happen again is Brady being named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, an honor he achieved Wednesday for the 23rd time in his career -- an NFL record.
But Brady’s not gloating about that last game; his focus is on Sunday’s meeting with the 49ers -- a process he actually began two weeks ago.
“I did. I did. After our Thursday night game against the Jets, I tried to do a bunch of work on the '9ers. So I put a couple of days in there and actually after the game on Monday night, I felt like I just had to watch their most recent game and I was caught up,” Brady said.
It's that type of preparation that's put Brady in position for another MVP award. When asked if he'd vote for himself, the two-time winner avoided the question like a pass rush.
“I don't have that vote…If I did? That's a hypothetical. We don't answer hypotheticals at the Patriots. Belichick would stand up here and say, 'You moron. Why would you answer a hypothetical question like that?' and I sit right there and he doesn't have to look very far, so,” Brady said.
