"I was like, 'Is Tom OK?' You know, he's intense, but this was like a whole new thing, man. They were like, 'It's that time of the year, you just have to understand,' " Ochocinco told Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports this week.

It's clear Brady has something to prove against Denver on Saturday after two straight one-and-done postseason appearances. Much was made of his sideline tiff with offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien against the Redskins, but the tweaking, the correcting, the constant prodding of teammates is nothing unusual.

"That stuff happens every day," Ochocinco said. “Every ... single ... day. That's what it's like around here. Everybody is pushing for perfection and they're pushing hard. I've never seen anything like it in my whole career. You understand why this team is where it is. ... Tom is on you about the littlest things, that you were a step off where you should be or the angle is wrong or whatever it is. Really, he has me walking on eggshells and I haven't done that since I was a rookie."

I think Tom may be feeling Welker and his 'stache pressure behind him

Hmm.

Apparently being Tom terrific has a down side. I watched the Brady 6 with my brother today and the biggest impression of Tom Brady that I got was he is a geek. A very lucky, lucky geek.

When a team is playing that uptight, a couple of early mistakes can bring the whole thing crashing down.

We'll see how it goes. Week off, timing might be off a little bit. Throw in some timely sustained winds and suddenly Denver and New England are playing a game that favors the Broncos.

Throw in some sustained Broncos drives that end in TD's and an early Pats turnover...it could get really quiet in that stadium.

This is standard Brady. He's always been an extremely hard worker. They've told reports like this when he faced Manning in January multiple times during the middle/late 2000's.

I think Pats are really uptight about losing in the first round. Probably just make them ultra focused but still it weighs on them. Brady has trouble letting losses go and the 3 playoff losses in a row is on his mind.

Oh and whats the trouble winning a friggin playoff game in KC, you all saw last week how it's done.

Leave it to a chief to quote other teams' postseason success.

When have the pats self-destructed in the playoffs? I've seen them get beat, but rarely have they beat themselves. They make you earn it.

I was listening to the ESPN Broadcast today on TuneIn Radio. It was really funny how little respect the local hosts and the caller were giving Denver.

They were speaking as if they have both the #1 Offense *AND* the #1 Defense in the League.

They also explained away all of the recent one-and-done post-season appearances by the Pasties. The kept saying: "Don't worry, the Broncos aren't the Ravens or the Jets."

Damn right!

Matt Ca$$el's deal is for $63 million, with $28 million guaranteed, according to a source. He's going to make $40.5 million in the first three years of his contract.


Scott Pioli. Nuff said.

Its a game of inches and percentages in the end...true vets realize this and hone their game to succeed. What is great about Tom being this uptight is that it means his fears are legitimate enough in his mind and these small things are the answer...I think he got hit hard and often last time and they are really going to tighten up and throw short much more often. Why else would you be working on the steps routes and angles.

Broncos need to get up in the TE faces, the WR faces and bump them. Not every play, switch it up, but let them know that it will be happening. Anything but giving them a free release all day.

They did a good job on Gronk last time but the other one killed us. Maybe they should switch up which one they double sometimes.

The one thing that messes up Brady is getting in his face and smacking him. The earlier in the game you do it, the better.

This is what our mind set should be. We need to go out there and smack them in the mouth and be the more physical team.

How many times did they turn over the ball back in '05ish against the Broncos?

In my opinion, turnovers are offensive mistakes rather than defensive successes.

He's bothered by walker's satchel during their make out sessions. Weaker has lost that loving feeling.

this makes sense, it's all gonna be short timing routes to move the ball, with some running to keep the Broncos defense honest. I don't think they are going to take any chances of Brady getting VonDoomed or Ayeriaded or Bunkled or plowed head first into the ground...

I would take Scott Pioli over Jack Steadman and Carl Peterson. I like what he's done so far.
