    Hilarious start.

    First question: Reporter starts talking about an MVP year and "how is this year going for you personally?"

    Brady: (Inhales deeply)..."I think the Chicago Bears are a great team ..." Talks about the upcoming game.

    Classic.

    Every Patriot, to a man, talks like this. BB has em all thinking only about the moment, only about the team. Danny Woodhead sounds just like Brady. All about team, putting in the work, etc.

    I am so friggin proud of him!! What a professional way to set the tone and focus.

    Based on this little info, I predict that Cowher's prediction that the Pats will lose this w/d to the Bears will be wrong. :)

    this is amazing, why do the reporters even bother asking questions about anything other than the next game/team? i mean really, they might as well just go in there, and one of them tells Brady "go", and brady will say the exact same thing that he would say to ANY question

    do they really expect to hear something different? how many more years do they need for this fact to sink in?

    btw, i love it

    hey, while we're at it, why waste Brady's and their time with the live press conference, considering how much of a formality it is. Why not just let Stacy James hand out Brady's statement already typed up for them. Of course, there's also really little point in making Brady write it up himself. I mean, we all know exactly what he's going to say, so why not just have some junior PR flak write it up, so #12 can go spend a little more quality time teaching his toddlers to watch game film?

    Of course, let's think about the reporters' time, too -- why bother making them come to Foxborough? The media relations office can just email all of the players' statements right into their inboxes -- in fact, if the reporter wanted to give them the passwords to their paper or website's blogging platform, a Patriots employee could just go ahead and write up and post all of the press conference nuggets right on Reiss' Pieces, Extra Points, et al.

    Would be a whole lot easier for everyone involved.

    I don't think we even need to do that. Just issue 3 press releases for the entire season BB.

    To be used for an up coming game"

    We are focused on <insert team name>. They are good in all three phases of the game. Quick on offense, tough on defense, and explosive on special teams. I have the utmost respect for <name off opposing coach> who always has his team ready for every game. I just hope we can match their intensity.

    To be used after win:

    <team name> was a tough opponent we just got lucky on a few more plays than they did. One or two plays and the game could have gone a different way. It was a big win for us. We are moving on and focusing on <next oppenenat name> (replace <next oppenant name> with "draft" if the game played was the superbowl)

    To be used after loss.

    <team name> is an outstanding team and this was a tough lost. I commend <team name> for their outstanding victory. We are now focued on <next oppenant's name> (replace < next oppenant name> with "draft" if the game played was a play off game)

    Standard Patriot Statement:

    This is a new week, and we have a lot to prepare for, with our upcoming game with _________. They present a number of challenges to us on both sides of the ball, and in the special teams play. Players like _______ and _______ are always dangerous, and they are very well coached. We have the utmost respect for them and, to be honest, we'll have our work cut out for us this week.

    We are hoping to be able to execute well and play a full 60 minutes of football. If we do that, then I think we have a chance to win. So, we hope to stay focused on what we need to do to prepare for the _______.

    I saw a report that they never even turned on the film of the Jets game, just went straight to Chicago. Partly due to the short week I'm sure, but also partly to do with mental focus.

    He's not saying the same thing every time, he's responding to specific questions. Part of what "they" want is just to put his face and voice on TV for ratings.

    But he responded to whether he'd played in soldier field, their preparations given it's a short week, and how they're doing something for Peppers and said they are one of the best defenses they'll face. Also talked about how he played in Champaign but not Soldier Field. Little things like this make for a news story.

    He didn't issue a "statement".

    Personal fave line - "I don't know anything about [A (or B [or C])), all I know is that we are playing the [D] this week." :p Been too long since I last heard it...

    [Edit: Thanks to jmt57 for posting this elsewhere :D]

    To be honest, most sports writers (I don't even want to call them journalists) are a bunch of unimaginative hacks who ask the most predictable questions and are rarely ever properly prepared. They're looking for soundbites, not answers, and the players understand that. The rookies might not, but they learn quickly enough.

    So if the sports writers are going to mail it in, so will the players, as they should. BB is a prime example of it. He'll be so unbelievably bland and not take the bait these schmucks lay out there, but the minute someone asks him a real legit question, he's a fountain of knowledge. Then some idiot will ask him if he wants to kick Rex's butt and he tunes out.

    Yeah, you never know which way folks will take a thread, eh?

    Both Brady and Belichick can give extremely worthwhile answers to good questions, when they get them. And Brady did have plenty of good answers today (nothing great, just good). I just think that, given the chance to speak about the amazing year he's having -- courtesy of a reporter who I assume is new to the job -- he very skillfully got the conversation on-topic (even if the guy then asked a similar follow-up). Exemplary leadership.

    Well, yes, and then there's the tidbits that keep me listening.

    When he talked about Tedy Bruschi on Monday night it obviously came from the heart. Tedy's personality, Tedy's smile. No. BB is certainly not a "player's coach" but it's at times like that that it becomes clear that he's not just playing chess with live pieces. He loves his players and appreciates them as people.

    Actually he is a players coach. He just doesn't waste their time and his blowing smoke up their skirts and fluffing egos. He also never throws them under the bus. He spreads the credit and blame with a broad brush and always includes the coaching staff in the latter. So many so called players coaches toss those players to the media wolves at the first sign of trouble to deflect attention from their own incompetence.

    Depends what you mean by "players coach". You're absolutely right how fickle some of those guys are -- and that what matters more is being honest and direct with players, keeping any criticisms he has of individuals out of the media, being respectful even of guys with whom he parts company (see under Thomas, AD). But he doesn't do the Dick Vermeil love-bombing stuff either.
