"We're focused on the Denver Broncos and the game. All the rest of it's a bunch of hot air," Bill Belichick said Wednesday.
When asked by the media if he complains more than other quarterbacks, Brady said he wasn't aware how other quarterbacks operate.
"I'm not sure what the other quarterbacks do, so," Brady said. "If the refs want to throw the flag, I love when they throw the flags on the defenders, it advances our team. That's just part of football."
When asked what his response is to the Smith's comments, Brady said he was unaware of any such critiques (like this New York Daily News cover).
"I haven't seen any, so," Brady said.
In his 10th AFC Championship Game, this isn't Brady's first rodeo dealing with opponent's trash-talking headlines.
