FOXBORO -- Speaking on his weekly WEEI radio appearance Monday morning, Tom Brady says he misses Randy Moss -- who threw a lot of love the Patriots' way in an emotional postgame press conference Sunday -- and understands why Moss feels the way he does.
"If you love playing football and you love competing, you love playing for the New England Patriots," added Brady. "I don't know what it's like in other places. I've never been to other places. I just know how much I enjoy, and that's because when we show up to work ever day, it's all about football.
"And it has nothing to do with trying to say the right thing to the media. Talk is very cheap. It's about going out and earning it. And I think that's what the guys really appreciate, being on the team, that you're going to have an opportunity, and when you get your opportunity, you better be ready to take advantage."
Moss' opportunity ended with his trade three weeks ago.
"He's a very unique player, a very good friend ofmine," Brady said of Moss. "We share a lot of very personalconversations together about things that are happening in our life.That doesn't go away once he's on another team. So I've always beenrooting for him, hoping he does really well. It just happened this yearthat he moved on. It's just the way this league works now."
