Tom Brady knows if he's looking good, it's because his supporting cast makes it happen.

Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show this morning on WEEI.

So, to me, what we’ve accomplished really is nothing to this point. There’s always a part of me that knows, ‘Man, you can lose. You can have a really bad game and lose.’ I’m not trying to have any of those games. And I’m trying to express to my teammates — who maybe it’s their first year or second year, they haven’t been a part of it — ‘Man, listen, we haven’t done anything. Literally nothing. Zero. Nine wins? Nine wins is nothing.’

"Coach always says — and I said this last week — ‘Football season starts after Thanksgiving.’ It’s after Thanksgiving. Now we’re going to see what kind of football team we have. We’re going to see what other good football teams are, and what it takes to be a good football team. It’s not easy this time of year. There’s a lot of guys banged up. Depth for each team now has really become an issue. Mental toughness has really become an issue. The weather’s getting colder. The games are getting bigger. This is really when you find out kind of what the heart of each team is."

I could play better, there's no doubt about that, and I think this would be a great week for it. There's so much that goes into having success as a quarterback…it discredits what everyone else is doing to (focus only) on the quarterback. I play with a great group of guys. Really proud to be part of a team that has showed up when it matters most.
