HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) — Tom Brady won’t be one of the millions of people watching the Super Bowl.
Speaking to WEEI a day after the New England Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game, Brady admitted he will not be sitting in front of a television to see the Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 2.
“I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully. Those games are hard to watch,” Brady said. “I don’t really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season’s over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That’s pretty much how I feel.”
During the interview, Brady also spoke about the comments Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made immediately following the win against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game.
“We win with graciousness, and when we lose we can do better. Some teams don’t always do that or that’s not their program,” Brady told WEEI. “Look, they advanced. The only way to counter that is to beat them, so when you don’t win, it’s hard to say, but you’ve just got to shut your mouth and listen to it.”
After winning three Super Bowls in four years, the Patriots have now gone nine consecutive seasons without a championship, including back-to-back AFC Championship losses.
