Tom Brady On The Patriots Super Bowl Preparation

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady held a press conference on Thursday at Gillette Stadium to discuss his team's upcoming game against the New York Giants at Super Bowl XLVI. The full transcript of the press conference can be found at the official Patriots website.

Brady was asked about how his own Super Bowl experience is able to help his teammates prepare for the game.

Coach Belichick prepares the team pretty well. What a lot of the veterans have tried to do is set an example by doing the right thing. It's not so much, ‘Hey this is the way it's going to be,' it's ‘Look, we're going to work hard, it's a football game for us, it might be the Super Bowl for everybody else but for us we're going there to try to win a football so put all the distractions aside and don't let anything get in the way of our preparation.' That's ultimately what is most important. This game, everyone will remember for their rest of their life. Hopefully it's a good memory.

Brady was also asked about his earlier comments that he hoped to play the best game of his career against the Giants.

I go out there and you try to be at your very best in the biggest game. My teammates really count on that, certainly I count on that. There's a lot of preparation that goes into that. Playing with confidence and anticipation and understanding the game plan and going out and executing it when it matters the most. That's what it's going to take. It's a great team that we're playing; everyone is going to need to be at their best.

It certainly sounds as though the Patriots are taking the Giants seriously and not taking anything for granted.
