BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady has had his share of frustrating evenings against Rex Ryan and the New York Jets, even admitting to having some severe dislike for the franchise.
Back in 2010, Brady made headlines for saying “I hate the Jets.” But while the Patriots quarterback may not like them on or off the field, he certainly respects the team.
