Fresh off Sunday's AFC title game loss to Denver, the quarterback of the New England Patriots told WEEI-FM this week that he won't be among the millions tuning in to see Peyton Manning and the Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks.
"I don't have much of a rooting interest, truthfully," he said. "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. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That's pretty much how I feel."
Who can blame the guy? We'll be watching -- and you'll be watching -- Super Bowl XLVIII while Brady picks red apples in a sunlit meadow with Gisele.
Talk about a backup plan.
