On how it feels to be in the 400 TD Club:
It was a good day, so it was fun to be out there. I think everyone enjoyed it. It was a good performance by our offense, good team win. It was a good week of practice, a lot of guys made plays so it was great day out there for football.
On if when Danny Amendola gave away the ball if he was saying, “what are you doing with it?”:
[Laughs] I don’t care. It’s just a ball. We’ve had a lot of fun ones, so yeah, Danny can do whatever he wants with it. He made a great catch.
On what hearing the crowd chanting his name after he threw #400 meant to him:
Well, you know, we’ve had such great support here over the years. Obviously, hopefully we give them something to cheer about out there. We’ve got great fans and it was great. It was a special day. I’ve been a part of so many great teams and played with so many great players and I’ve always said I don’t care whether we run it in or throw it in, as long as we score points and we’re winning, it makes it fun for me. So I was happy. You know, it’s still early, there’s a lot to improve on. We get a little break here, but we come back to work and see if we can make some improvements and try to get to 4-0.
On if he felt they played 60 full minutes of football and the fact Gronkowski talked about Brady’s preparation and how much goes into that:
Well, we wanted to play…last week I thought, you know, we played pretty good for the first 50 minutes and the last 10 minutes wasn’t our best football. So we talked all week about, you know, from start to finish, being at our best execution-wise, concentration and being disciplined out there and I think we accomplished that. That’s what it’s going to take. I mean these are all good teams. They’re tough to beat. Anytime you win a game, it’s hard to do. So I thought we played, you know, our execution was really good today and that’s what we’re going to need going forward.
On how he prepares:
I think everybody, you know, coach sets a pretty high expectation for how we should work in here. So I’ve just tried to improve things over the years and be efficient at what my job is and try to go out there and do the best I can do for our team.
On if he wishes they’d keep playing despite the bye week considering how well they’re playing right now:
I think you take them whenever they are and, you know, I think we’ve had a good 3 weeks. After this week we’ve got a long stretch ahead. so just try to take advantage of it and use the time as we always do to evaluate where we’re at and try to get ahead on some other things and try to get ready for a team like Dallas that we haven’t played in a long time.
On the fact they’re off to a fast start and if they learned anything to last year after not getting off to a last start:
I just think we’re playing more consistently and I think that’s…the key is to just…you know, we’ve got a lot of veteran players, especially on offense, and you know it comes down to our execution, how well we throw and catch and block and run and tackle and rush the passer and do all the things our coaches tell us to do. We put together a good game plan today and I thought went out and do a good job of executing.
On the fact he has over eleven hundred yards, nine touchdowns, zero interceptions through three games and the fact he’s had some pretty incredible seasons and performances and whether or not he feels this is the best he’s ever been playing:
I’m happy we’re 3-0.
