Bill Belichick feels that Isaiah Stanback’s background as a quarterback helps him as a receiver.

"I think one of the advantages he has is that he understands what the quarterback’s looking at. I think he has a better-than-average feel for how to come open, when to come open on certain routes and what the quarterback’s looking at," Belichick said. "For anybody that’s played quarterback, you know it doesn’t really help you for a receiver to come open when either you can’t or you’re not ready to throw him the ball."

Tully Banta-Cain on getting pressure on Drew Brees.

"It's huge. He's on fire right now. If you don't have any water to put it out, he's going to keep burning you up. Sorry for the analogy. But I think anytime you have a threatening quarterback like that the only way to beat them is pressure, and obviously the guys on the back end behind us doing the job and vice versa. We definitely have our hands full with him and everybody he has to go to."

Shalise Manza Young points out an upcoming Brady milestone.

Not only is Brady close to passing Drew Bledsoe as New England’s all-time passing leader, but he is also close to hitting 30,000 yards for his career. Coming into Monday night’s game, Brady has 29,495 yards is 163 yards shy of Bledsoe and 505 yards shy of the 30k mark.
