Really illustrates the work ethic of our NE Patriots. http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2007/01/14/charged_up_for_the_playoffs/ "Although Tuesdays are designated as a day off for the team, Brady has been showing up at Gillette Stadium on Tuesdays since his rookie year in 2000. "There are no off days," he said. ... "I got up Tuesday morning and told him, 'Dad, I'm going down to the stadium,' " Brady said. "He asked me, 'Tom, how many guys go down there on Tuesdays?' I told him there were about 25 guys, and he could probably guess them. "So he said, 'Larry [Izzo], right?' I said, 'Yep.' Then he said, 'And Tedy [Bruschi]? Troy? Richard [Seymour]?' I said, 'Yep.' Then he said, 'Ty Warren, right?' He knew them all. "Each one of those guys made himself a great player. That's why we win." ... "We were at practice [Wednesday] during a defensive period," Brady said. "All the offensive players were waiting around, but there's Troy, running up and down the sideline, doing sprints, then catching footballs with the Jugs machine. The guy's been in the league 14 years and that's how he approaches it. "So now when Troy says, 'We've got to start working harder,' who is going to question him? They're going to be thinking, 'Well, I don't work harder than Troy Brown does, so I better listen to him.' "That's the kind of leader I want to follow.""
