Tom Brady Has Trouble Watching Highlights Of First Patriots-Giants Super Bowl

Tom Brady has already tied John Elway's record by leading his team to a fifth Super Bowl. On Feb. 5, he'll have a chance to tie the record currently shared by Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw by going for his fourth Super Bowl victory.

Of course, he could be trying to break that record if he and the New England Patriots hadn't lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII. Brady and the Patriots will have a chance to avenge that loss this year, but that doesn't mean the memories of it have gotten any easier to deal with, he told sports radio station WEEI on Monday:

"I still can't watch highlights from that game. I think that's just the way it is. You get to the end and we had a great opportunity there and really squandered it, because we didn't play our very best."

While Brady may not watch that film, he will apparently be looking at another game the Patriots played against the Giants: the one from Nov. 6.

"We'll certainly look at that game, several times. You see matchups. You see how your guys match up against their guys -- route-running and blocking and so forth. It will have absolutely zero impact on the game, but at the same time, hopefully we can learn some lessons from that game."
