“I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," Brady told WEEI in a lengthy interview Monday. "Those games are hard to watch. I don’t really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it.""
"Our season’s over," he added. "Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That’s pretty much how I feel.”
Brady also shared his thoughts on Richard Sherman's now-famous post-game outburst, describing the Seattle Seahawks corner back as "that kind of guy."
"I approach the game and I have respect for my opponents," Brady said. "That’s the way our team always plays. 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."
"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," he continued. "Maybe when you get an opportunity down the road maybe that’s a source of motivation. But they’ve got a good team. They’ve played well all year. They played well at home. That’s why they advanced, too."
