Congratulations Ian Rapoport; nobody on the Patriots is going to talk to you in the future, regardless of whether or not this comment is accurate. BB (and Brady) cannot be happy with handing a worthy opponent bulletin board material.

NFL Videos: Can Brady do it again?

The comment is near the end at about the 3:20 mark; Rapoport says that a Pats OL told him that Brady said "against the Steelers, don’t worry, I got it."

Time to find a new career, Ian Rapoport. Or figure out how to do the weather.

edit: Meh. I finished listening to it. Rapoport says an O-Lineman told him that before the season even started. Irrelevant garbage.

To tell you the truth,I like a well spoken and confident Brady who makes throws accurately then a confused Brady such as last years playoff game who throws picks or looks uncomfortable and makes mistakes or out throws his receiver.

If Brady is confident he could read the Steelers,then no bulletin board material in the league is going to allow a defense to effect Tom and the offense.

A confident Brady with even a decent amount of time to throw cannot be beaten.

Let's put it this way...If Brady's jersey remains clean all game this game won't be close....if the Steelers defensive front gets to Brady it will be a long game,our O line vs. Their D line will determine this game.

That's fine and dandy and all but the challenge with this time against the Steelers is that they have the footage from the playoff game versus the Jets last year. I'm sure they'll work a few of those wrinkles into their game plan.

Oh my goodness.

The game is obviously lost because a Patriots player displayed confidence.

Rappaport should be dragged through the streets, and we should cut Tom Brady. Simply outrageous.

The Steelers HAVE to change what they have been doing most if their previous meetings if they want to beat the Patriots,and the Patriots must find out early if the Steelers have done that and counter the move as if it were a chess match.

LaBeau is the best defensive minded coach in the business,better than either Ryan brother and I think we see a few new wrinkles Sunday,our job is to see those wrinkles and 'iron' them out.

I expect to see a lot of nickel packages in the Steelers game plan Sunday.

Steelers clog the backfield with DB's hello 136 yards 2 TD's @ 5.0 yards a pop for the Law Firm.

Don't tell me the Patriots offensive linemen wouldn't be salivating at the opportunity to man handle the Steelers defensive linemen. The big uglies would love that.

I suspect it was Waters, he is good, but seems a bit too chatty for my Pats and the way I like my Pats. Brady will know who said it to Ian.
Waters is the only one who really might have had questions about what to do .

ROFLMAO!

That may be the stupidest post of the year on this website.

The actual JETS THEMSELVES lost to the Pats three weeks ago.

Perhaps in your addled head you think the Jets didn't have access to their OWN footage of last year's playoff game?

Where do we get these new posters????

Koppen is no longer the center against the Steelers...this year it's Dan Connolly going up against Casey Hampton who might be the best NT Connolly has seen yet...this never before seen matchup in the trenches could be very interesting.

Connolly's been pretty darn good for the Patriots since replacing Koppen. It would be interesting to see a direct comparison between Koppen and Connolly's performances at center.

Facing a guy as good as Hampton is will be a big indicator of how truly solid Connolly can be at center for years to come.

I doubt Koppen returns in 2012
